Bali - Day 1

Today's mood :>
*p/s: This is the 100th post of this blog :D something to celebrate, ya?

6th August 2008
David Lee sent us to KL Sentral to get SkyBus to LCCT. We had our lunch at McD before boarding the bus @ 2pm. There's a uncle sit beside me in the bus keep burping.. -.-||| My flight was 4:45pm, so I still got lot of time hanging around LCCT. And I didn't forget to bring this fella along...

While waiting for the boarding time, we had some orange juice for RM8.90.. T^T giler expensive.. since no air ticket for Eppahed, I had to stuff him inside my bag :P
Now let's fly..

I always have to sit near the wing (free seating), I dunno why others dun like to sit beside the wings -.-" And I always get amaze with the clouds, so I took some photos and that's the time I got bad news.. GOT DUST IN THE SENSOR! When the lens go up to F10 and above, you can see some dust shadow on the image TT_TT It's ok since this hi-tech era has a software named Photoshop.. LoLx.. I'll just photoshop it :P

Ah after awhile, that's the lunch / tea time.. cannot tahan the nice smell, and my advice, EAT IN THE PLANE even you just eaten before boarding.. If not u gotta suffer the aroma and then later u feel dizzy.. So I ordered some small snack like Roti Jala..

After the plane landed, collect luggage, check out, I saw a loooooooottttt people waiting outside.. most of them are hotel porters waiting for customer then bring them to the hotel.. some of them are taxi drivers offering "LUXURY" ride to your destination.. and one of them has short leg, walk so slow..

I must talk about their taxi drivers driving skills! It's much more terror than Takumi. Hahahaha.. most of the time, the driver is honking and flashing more than putting signal. First he flashed the car which is moving slow in front of him, if the car didnt speed up, he will honk n then cut it (because there's only 1 lane for 1 direction). We stopped talking, after awhile the driver asked us "Are you okay?" ><|||

We didnt book any hotel online or phone booking.. We just try our luck there..haha.. So we got some "LUXURY" hotel cost RP200k, with a 15" tv, fridge, air-cond and cold water at those tourist service counter near departure gate. Then we took a fixed price taxi service to that hotel (it's cheaper 4 times)..Check out the bed..

Please let me complain bout this hotel,
1) Water from the tap is salty
2) The bed makes my leg itchy
3) Yellow stain in the toilet
4) No toilet paper and towel provided
5) More expensive than what I would pay for this kinda quality
So we decided to find another cheaper and maybe better quality hotel the next day ><"

After settled down, we went to have our first dinner in Bali :)

We had grilled mix seafood and Bintang (local beer) for dinner.. There's some miscommunication during the dinner, we asked for Garlic Butter Sauce.. (what we thought is white color creamy texture which i used to have at Manhattan Fish in Malaysia. But their garlic butter sauce is sooo much different from what I imagine.. lolx.. it looks like some garlic cook in butter n then the butter melted so it looks like some soup texture.. hahha.. taste very oily ><"

Jalan Poppies 2, the places we hang out the most throughout the whole Bali trip. This jalan is a very small lane but full with shops, restaurants and hotels and it's only 10 minutes walk to Kuta beach.

As u can see, there's only 1 lane.. of course it's only one way, but the motorcycles can go any direction they want.. haha.. yeah there's also kereta kuda, and taxi is spelled "TAKSI"..After walking around, we went into this bar..

Apache Reggae Bar is quite famous for their live band and reggae music. We hang out there for our first night in Bali. You have to buy 1 drink to get into the bar, the cheapest drink is RP20k (RM7) only.. I tried Arak Bali there.. hmm.. no comments :P
2 guys approached us (some of the local ppl r friendly as in they truly just wanna make friends, no business) 1 of them looked high, another 1 just abit hyperactive.. lol.. they offered us drink, cigarette even asked us to take photos with them.. but we didnt want their free drink n cigarette cuz we just wanna stay alert.. They somehow are STILL strangers, u know..

After dancing around, the live band ended and it was close to 2am. The guys asked whether wanna go another pub, swt.. We declined and just go back to that "luxury" hotel and try to sleep tight ><"
