Bali enchanted

Bali is truly an enchanting place.

Or maybe there’s a certain enchantment that charms visitors travelling to this fabled island and sets a longing in their hearts to come back for more.

That’s what I told my husband. Ever since we came back from our short trip last month, he’s been talking about when we should go back again. Bali has cast her magical charms on my man and he is besotted. But I’m not complaining because I wouldn’t mind going back again soon.

Getting there was easy and affordable with AIRASIA. We stayed in the more tranquil area of Sanur, about 20 minutes away from Denpasar airport. We went to most of the recommended places of interest (thanks to Tony Pua for the great tips and driver recommendation!) and enjoyed them all, especially Neka Art Museum and our al fresco dinner by the beach in Jimbaran. There’s really a lot to see and do in Bali and even during quiet moments of pure relaxation, doing nothing feels just as wonderful.

I love Sanur beach, especially in the morning right after a lovely breakfast. Not for swimming, but I do so enjoy lying on the cushioned deck chair under a canopy of trees, just soaking in the cool ocean breeze while watching the angmohs bake in the sun. My little boy played happily & quietly for hours in the sand, building little pyramid structures with twigs and leaves he picked up around him. People watching could be so interesting in the right kind of setting.

Yes, we would definitely go back again. If only to spend long lazy hours at the beach watching the waves roll in and out, feeling the soft breeze against our faces and drifting in and out of our blissful stupor.

Bali crossings, anyone?

Bali sure seems to be the destination for many now, especially with the cheap AirAsia packages.

Would 3d/2n be enough? I'm thinking of heading there if I'm free when I'm back in December.

Ms Fashion: Yes .. gotta book very early in order to get the cheap tickets!

Kenny: I think a lot of ppl are getting fed-up with our local politicians lately - I want to close one eye when they get too stupid and childish.

Dancing queen: E-mail me, okay?

Mave: Life is too short to be looking over our shoulders all the time! I'm thinking of Phuket next .. after the ghostly months, of course :-)

T.heels: No no dear, at least 3 nites and even then, it was too short a stay for me as you can see. Btw, you're welcomed to e-mail me for some latest info about entrance fees & general pricing for budgetting purposes.

Hi mindfreak! If you need to buy cheap T's & beach shorts for gifts, go to Sukawati local market. The quality is not too bad - only Rp10000 a piece (about RM4 only!!)
