06.34 am – Jl Pantai Kuta in the morning.

Family day for the employees of one of the hotels in Kuta.

Went to a CIMB kiosk and

used my Visa card to withdraw an additional IDR 500,000.

The very empty Pantai Kuta at 6.43am in the morning.

Indonesian women doing yoga in the morning.

Family day = clean up Kuta beach day.

The entrance to Tune Hotels.

A pretty big water pocket from the rain last night.

One of the most budget yet convenient hotel to stay in Kuta.

The small counter by the entrance of Tune Hotels

owned by Ceria Agency Transport

that rent out motorbikes for IDR 50,00 per 24 hours.

The key to my bike.

hehehe.

Had a bit of petrol left.

07.59 am – Went to KFC Kuta Square for breakfast.

chicken fillet sandwich.

The Indonesian KFC menu doesn’t change as well.

Bought an additional green bean bun for breakfast.

09.30 am – 1st stop, Mr Kuta Surf, a surf shop located directly opposite Discovery Mall.

Vivian bought herself a pair of Roxy for IDR 135,000. That’s like 60% the price of what you’d normally get back in Malaysia.

09.47 am – Next stop, Kuta Square.

Went through a lot of surf shops

before deciding on a pair of Quicksilver.

The recyclable bag.

To be worn during Chinese New Year.

And then Vivian spotted an optical shop.

Bought herself a box of contacts as she lost one lens side when trying to wear it.

Went to Matahari Kuta Square to check out the items on sale.

The surfboard by the elevator.

10.40 am – Next stop, a row of shophouses under the same management I suppose, called Bali Colada.

Blue Glue bikinis.

Metrox.

Crocs.

10.53 am – Drove over to Legian Art Market for additional shopping.

07.19 am – Woke up early. Passed by the closed McDonald’s in Kuta Square.

Passed by a CIMB bank.

The quiet street by the beach.

Kuta beach’s McDonald’s.

One of the only very few eating places around Kuta that sells breakfast.

Their menu never changes. It’s the same throughout the entire day.

Ordered a cup of tea and

2 Gourmet Wrap aka Foldovers.

Tasted pretty good actually.

The crying Ronald McDonald.

I wonder how Manila’s Ronald McDonald look like, now that I have seen Bali’s and Thai’s Ronald.

I see this guy everywhere. Odyssey’s a marketing guru.

09.14 am – By 9.14am, we hopped on to Dean’s Toyota Kijang and were on our way to the tour of the day.

And it rained.

The first place we went to was an art complex selling all sorts of genuine jewelery.

The interior.

The sculpture with the toilet signs on his left and right arm.

10.14 am – Next stop was a market that girls in particular should go to in the mornings.

It’s called Pasar Seni Sukawati.

You get all sorts of clothes, paintings, shorts, bags, accessories, etc. at floor prices.

You can bargain so hard that you’d get a dress for the price of IDR 20,000.

11.56 pm – Next stop, Warung Babi Guling Ibu Oka for lunch.

The huge restaurant famous for it’s pork.

The lower floor interior.

The menu contains only 2 different sets for you to choose from.

Of course there’s also the alacarte section.

Bintang did cross my mind but… nah.. it’s too early for beer.

My green tea.

The keropoks.

The mangosteen.

The babi guling set that comes

with rice separately and

a small bowl of soup.

The set that comes with rice included but without soup.

Awesome lunch!

Oh yeah, for chili lovers, you should try the babi guling chili. Hot as hell!

01.02 pm – And we were on our way again.

Our road was blocked for a while to wait for the guy up in the tree to

finish chopping down a bunch of coconuts. (Spot the falling coconuts)

01.06 pm – 4 minutes later, we reached the rice terrace fields. Beautiful place. Truly beautiful!

01.23 pm – And we were on our way again.

01.48 pm – Mount Batur, an active volcano located at the center of two concentric calderas north west of Mount Agung in Bali.

02.01 pm – And we were on our way again and it rained. It was practically raining the entire day. January is actually the wettest month of the year in Bali.

Passed by a bunch of volcano lava rocks.

Took 2 small ones home as souvenirs. 😈
