I'm not perfect and I cannot tell the future either. I'm dealing with these imperfections and uncertainties in life. And at the same time, I'm living life and staying true to myself. I'm doing what I feel is right for me.
Sure, you may not agree with how I live my life, and I respect that. You are entitled to your own opinion.
But for you to jump to conclusions because I fly to Bali with a male friend... (to join a whole bunch of other people in Bali...)... I feel is downright insular on your part.
As long as I'm single, I can travel with whoever I want to... and even if I were attached, the only person I would have to take into consideration is my partner, and not you.
Plus the main point of the trip to Bali was to meet my cousin (& company) who flew to Bali from Australia as part of her 30th Birthday celebration.
She's only 7 months older than me so we're very close. (Soon, it'll be my turn to turn 30!)
The Aussie bunch arrived on Thursday. But my friend and I only arrived on Sarurday and we checked into our hotel at Seminyak pretty late (8pm), so we didn't do much that first night except pop out to Hu'u Bar for dinner. I had foie gras, and I can't remember what I had for my main (haha). (Pictures of hu'u bar are in my friend's camera, I'll update later)
I wore a Purple Icicle dress from GipsyScarlet. I'm lemming for their ombre tube dresses from collection 3 next. I've been wearing my hair up and away from my face quite often lately.
After I take the chostick out of my hair bun, I always get wavy hair... and I quite like it... I'm wondering if I should go for a hairstyle with more volume next, or stick to straight rebonded hair?
The weather the next day was fantastic. Blue skies as far as the eye can see. We did a short beach walk and then went to Kuta for lunch. I hate kuta... so smogy and busy.
In the evening, we all went to Jimbaran beach for a fresh seafood feast. Lobster, prawns, fish...ice cold beers... extreme yums.
We dined right on the beach, by candlelight, with the waves lapping in the background.
The Mariachi (spell??) band played a few songs for us, while I hopped around trying to photograph it. Typical Singaporean I am... can't just relax and enjoy the moment (!).
The next day was spent sight seeing. Went up to Ubud, which is more idyllic than Kuta.
Had a nice lunch at this restaurant by a paddy field.
Food was great, the only shitty thing for me is that they had these Frog things on th table. *puke* I hate frogs, makes me feel like vomiting!
But I soon got over it once my food arrived. I ordered Crispy Duck!! Absolute Heaven! I know the pic doesn't make it look too appetising... but trust me, it was soooooooo crispy, tasty, lip smackingly good!
We also spent some time with the monkeys in Monkey Forest.
And then drove up to the top of some volcano that now has a lake in it or something. Unfortunately, by the time we got there, the weather turned shitty. Overcast.
Our last night there, was spent watching the sunset and then dinner at Kudeta. I had a different type of foie gras this time (mixed with prawn).
And crabmeat linguine (in entree size) for my main. Good!!
Then the rest of the evening was spent lounging at Kudeta.
This cute Polkadot number (with a pink satin kimono inspired sash) I'm wearing is from The199Shop.
mmmmm.... lychee martini.....
Damn it! I dropped my lychee on the floor!
I absolutely loved my room (at Anantara, Seminyak). It had access to a private pool, so every morning I'd just slide the bedroom door open and I can slip right into the pool!
The main pool at the hotel was a nice infinity pool but I didn't use it at all. If I had shitloads of money, I'd want to have a house with a small pool that's connected to my bedroom.
Just cleared my email and some work. I'm freaking tired. Need Sleep.
P/S- If I'm secretly pleased that I dropped a couple of kilos in the last month (without even trying to lose weight).... does it make me crazy? Weight is now 46Kgs. So at 1.65 m, I think my BMI is at an all time low. But I think it's just a phase, and I'll probably just put those Kilos right back on (just as magically as I lost it) in a few weeks.
