Short Getaway to BALI

May 23, 2018

It was my second time here in Bali, but this time with my mom. Not so many things to do in Bali since it was just a short time and the main reason we were in Bali is to attend my mom's old friend's daughter's wedding. So glad to have a chance to accompanied her met her long lost best friend since college. It was a really touching moment to see them gather and talk about the old things they used to do back when in college.

Arrived at Ngurah Rai International Airport of Denpasar, Bali

I finally back in Bali. Seriously, it was an exciting moment in my life because I went to Bali alone by myself. Yeah, although for the next couple of hours my mom would arrived. My mom took a plane from Manado and she must transit to Makassar in order to continue the trip to Bali. While me took a plane from Jakarta because I currently live and work here. We met in Ngurah Rai airport.

First stop, we were having lunch in Ayam Betutu khas Gilimanuk nearby the airport. Sooo starving and craving for this Ayam Betutu. My mom at first found weird seeing the Ayam Betutu final product but definitely love it after she tasted it.

My mom & I were so tired because we took an early flight to Bali and of course with all of the work busyness. So we decided to have some self-treatment a.k.a spa nearby our hotel. I googled the best spa nearby and I found Bali Green Spa. We went there and luckily there were a 50% discount off for 90 minutes full body spa treatment. The place is so relaxing and peaceful.

Back to hotel and change clothes for the next destination: church. We went to St. Fransiskus Xaverius Church in Kuta because it was the Ascension Day of Jesus Christ and we joined the english mass.

To close the day, after joined the mass we went to Naughty Nuri's in Seminyak for dinner. I was craving for pork ribs and turns out my mom love it too!

Start exploring Bali in North area.

Actually, I have no idea where to go in Bali because I have explored Bali before with my close friends. I wanted to go to some cafes & unique places I never been to but since I'm here with my mom so we decided to go to Bedugul, Tanah Lot (again), and Wanagiri. We rent a car with a driver because that's too far for me to driving and it's only two of us. My mom couldn't read maps and if I drive, I need to multi-tasking; see the maps while driving and talking with mom. It's a big noooo for me.

I really wanted to go to beach, but my mom said "there's a lot of beaches in Manado as well". So when we were in Tanah Lot, I was so happy because there's a beach! I love being at the beach, wish I can do diving (well, it's one of my bucket list to learn diving😜). It was so relaxing there. We only spent 20-30 minutes in Tanah Lot, purely only seeing the beach.

To close the day, we had dinner at Jimbaran. My mom was happy because she's never been there.

It's time to go back. Today's agenda was only to join the Sunday mass and having some lunch. Since it was the last day of long weekend, the airport was sooo crowded because people were going back to their own places. There were some flights being delayed included mine & mom's.

It was really fun for being back again to Bali after 3 years and being there with my mom. Well, I do really need to learn how to ride a motorcycle because Bali is in traffic everywhere. Nonetheless, Bali is just sooo good, it's just become everyone's favorite island..including mine♥️
