Bali - Indonesia (Part 1)

(Read the Bali trip post here: Part 1 / Part 2 / Part 3)

Yay time to update and post up pictures from the Bali trip that I went late last year!

I realise there are way too much pictures taken and I'm going to spilt them up into a few parts for the updates so it's easier to read and also, easier for me to blog hahahaha (that's actually the main reason lololol). Anyway, it's pretty much an impromptu trip because when Isaac asked me to join them for the trip to Bali, I was still schooling, having lessons at that point of time. But just nice, the date for the trip falls on my study break, which means I could go but yet, I still need to study for my final exams lah!

I was contemplating at first because it was my final semester already, so I thought I should just study hard and make sure I pass in the end and able to graduate, instead of failing one module and have to repeat another semester right. But then I think back... for every study break, I will go for holidays one wtf.

And end up, surprisingly (or not) I still will manage to pass all my exams and get distinction for some modules even! Hahaha! I think it's because I really will study even harder after coming back from holidays cause I'll be damn scared I will fail hahaha! So I'm like, fine lah! I'll go since it's just a few days and also I never been to Bali before, so it's good for me to go explore! Plus, Isaac's friend managed to get a free hotel stay, so of course must go! Just pay air tickets only leh, and plus some money to spend there!

So after we purchased our air tickets, I fly over with Taiwei first, who is one of my close friend from secondary school! And we went there 1 day before Isaac and Duncan arrive because.... I want get the cheapest ticket available hahaha! And we also leave like 1-2 days earlier than them as well!

Bali trip 1

At airport and Taiwei is grabbing some food while waiting for our flight!

My phone, passport (with my usual orange cover) and the air ticket!

Bali trip 3

I love Changi Airport so much, always give me a very calm feeling whenever I'm there!

Bali trip 4

Me pretending to use my phone with my awesome awesome rainbow hair! It looks so so so good hor omg. After he's done with eating, we went to buy some necessity and boarded the plane off to Bali!

I didn't took any pictures on the plane with my camera but on my phone, yes! In fact a lot hahaha got a lot of videos even! But I'm lazy to transfer it to my laptop, so not posting any of them up. Can go my Instagram to see if you want. Anyway, upon reaching... clearing the custom was crazy cause we waited for more than 2 hours to clear it! There were way too many people! I think there are more than a thousand people queuing up just to get our passport "chop" and we almost died from hunger while queuing in there! -_-

Then as we left and walk out to the arrival section of the airport.....

Bali trip 5

Omg so many people waiting and holding signboard hahahaha! Like we thought is some celebrity coming or something thats why so packed but it's not, just that there are a lot of people visiting Bali!

Bali trip 6

Found the person who's here to fetch us to the hotel! I always prefer to have airport transfer by hotel because it's more safe and reliable, although it's more expensive. But is worth it one!

Before that, we also went to get our data sim card! It's really very cheap and good lol. We gotten it just outside the airport! If you all ever go there, I would recommend you guys to get from "Indosat" because it's cheap and the data like cannot use finish one! Plus the people there are very nice with good service!

Already dinner time when we reached the hotel! Went out nearby our hotel to have our dinner and we ended up at Mai-Mai Bar & Restaurant! The ambience was good but the food was just so-so.

Bought some vitamin drinks on the way back to hotel after dinner!

And can you believe I actually didn't take pictures of our room and I didn't want to at first. But after that, I realise I need to and have to show you all our room cause it is really huge omgggggg!!! I think many of you guys will love one!! Only took the room pictures on the second day when Isaac and Duncan came, which then I didn't manage to take picture of one of the biggest room cause they were busy unpacking lol!

I then heard that this beach is open exclusively to all the guests who stays at the 5 star hotels/resorts in the area, so it's very clean, quiet and very beautiful!!! No wonder it's not crowded at all too! That is totally in contrast with the Kuta beach which is super packed, with tons of people!
