Hi guys, here's my trip to Bali last year (sorry I forgot to post it). I was so happy for this long vacation (June 20- July 1, 2014). I just want to share my happiness to you all. Now, I'm going to tell you the places that I went to. I stayed at my auntie's house at Nusa Dua. I love Nusa Dua because it's quite strategic to go to many beautiful places like Uluwatu, Nusa Dua and Geger beach, Water blow, Bali collection, Pandawa beach, Karma Kandala and Finns beach, Blue Point beach, Padang-padang beach, etc and many five stars hotels.
Arrived at Bali then I took dinner at my auntie's home. It's already night when I arrived in Bali.
I woke up around 5 am then I can't sleep again. My brother went to the beach with my uncle (in law) so I waited him to went back to home. After that, I went to Pandawa beach. It's early in the morning so the beach still not crowded. I just looked around and took pictures then I went back home. Then in the afternoon, I drank coffee at Amanusa Resort in Nusa Dua. This is five stars resort. In the evening I took dinner at Seafood house. I ate delicious lobsters, and another seafoods. I ate until I can't ate anymore. My stomach was too full at that time. I even didn't eat rice. This is the pictures:

I bought these temporary tattoos in Jakarta and wear them in Bali
I woke up around 5 am and I couldn't sleep again so I went to Water blow and Nusa Dua beach at 6 am to saw the sunrise. Then in the evening I went to Bali Collection at Nusa Dua then I went to the beach again. I took lunch and dinner at home. Here's the pictures:

I went to Alila Villas Uluwatu. This is one of the most expensive and beautiful resort that I've ever been (I went there just for brunch). Here's the pictures:
I stayed at Grand Nikko Hotel at Nusa Dua until wednesday (1 night). In the afternoon, I play water slide in the pool then I join baby sea turtles release to the sea. They're really cute. I promise I don't want to eat sea turtle anymore even it's so delicious. I'm so lucky I stayed at the hotel which is the day sea turtles release to the sea. In the evening, I ate western food at The Shore (hotel's restaurant). The service was great and they have the best steak ever that I ever ate. The foods that me and my family ordered were so delicious. The restaurant's location is beside the beach. Here's the picture:

I wake up around 5 am (again) to watched the sunrise. Then I took so many pictures. At 1 pm I checked out from Hotel then at 4 pm I went to Rock Bar at Ayana Resort. The view was great. I got one of the best seat with the beautiful view (the seat that I sat not too hot because hindered with wall). I didn't queue when everybody queues because my dad has acquaintance who works there so I could directly have a seat. Here's the pictures:

I only stayed at home today because I was so tired. I took lunch homemade nasi uduk.
I went to Finns Beach Club just looked around and took pictures. After that, I went to Karma Kandara to took lunch at Di Mare restaurant and went to the beach. We have to pay 250k if we want to go to the beach. But because of we ate luck there, we didn't need to pay. So 1 person should spent 250k or more for lunch. The beach still not famous, not many people know this beach. So the beach is soooo clean and clear. This is the best and the most beautiful beach that I've ever seen. Feels like I want to spend 1 night there but the hotel is quite expensive. I took so many pictures there. After I went there, I went to Dreamland beach. There I ate snack at Klapa Lounge (restaurant beside the beach). After I ate there, I looked around the beach and (again) took many pictures. Thanks to my brother for be patient when I asked him to took so many pictures. I have sunburn and I'm happy for it. I hope my skin get tan. But I know my skin is difficult to get tan (now my skin looks like boiled crab. haha). I took dinner at Bali Galeria Mall (Kafe Betawi). Here's the pictures:

I woke up around 6 am then I slept again until 8 am. Then I took lunch at Bebek Sawah Indah Restaurant (Ubud). The view is great and the weather quite cold because so many trees there. I ate until I can't ate anymore because my stomach was so full. After that I went to Titiles to bought crackers (kerupuk) for my friends. There are so many animals there like tigers, birds, owl, deers, fishes, etc. I took pictures with some animals. Then I went to Geger beach (near The Mulia hotel). The beach is quite bad because there's no waves, too many rocks there, and so shallow. The stupid thing is I want to tanning my skin but I forget there's no sunset there because Nusa Dua is in east, so it's useless I went to the beach today. Here's the pictures:

Selfie with animals at Titiles. It's my bad hair day :(
I went to a Chinese restaurant (I don't know what it's name) at Jimbaran for lunch. The foods are quite delicious. After it, I went to Tanjung Benoa. I wanted to play water sport but the wave wasn't high because the sea was lessened so I canceled my plan. I took dinner at home.
I don't know the name of this seafood. Maybe longgeng or something.
At first, I wanted to go to waterboom but my dad's body was not well yesterday (in bahasa: masuk angin) so I changed my plan. I went to Nusa Dua beach again at 7 am until 10 am. I wanted to tan my skin more, so I did tanning. I was bored have a white skin, tan is sexy. haha. At first, I was afraid my family would scold me, but when I got home, my grandma and auntie told me that I was so pretty with this tan skin over again and again. Uyeahh! But I knew my skin would be so painful next few days. I went to The Mulia Hotel to ate snack. I ate Nutella Hazelnut Moisse. After ate, I took few pictures. Here's some of the pictures that I took today:
This room wasn't dark, this was the sunburn effect :')
This picture was taken right after I went back from beach ;)

The very modern toilet at The Mulia. It's even has a dryer to dry our (sorry) butt. I was curious so I pushed all the buttons one by one. Lol
Finally it's time to say goodbye to Bali :( I felt like I didn't wanna leave this place. This island is too wonderful. I wish I could stay here for living. It's time to back to the reality which is full of problems :')
I'm so grateful I could have this wonderful long vacation in Bali with my lovely family. I realize that I don't have reason to hate my life because I've been blessed too much. Words can't explain how much I'm grateful and blessed. I'm so blessed beyond measure. I want to be grateful for what I have, not grumble for the things I don't have. I also don't want to compare my blessings to others because everyone has their own blessings. Ah how much I loved this vacation. Thanks God for this wonderful vacation. I was super duper over happy! :D
