We checked out from the hotel in Sanur the following day and moved to Ubud.
I was quite excited this time, thinking Ubud.. Erm.. something away from the the hustle and bustle of the City.
p/s: Again, dad still hasn’t given up on his cultural trip yet!
I gave in this time. *.*!!!
“fasta daddy! it’s hot here!!”
The temple that we visited was quite a thing, to be honest.
I’ve seen the Hindu offerings everywherebefore, but not this much! They form a beautiful picture too!
It was quite busy in the town center of Ubud. Indonesia flags were seen everywhere as the local were preparing for their National Day.
Mum and nan decided to do more marketing in Ubud, just in case they hadn’t spent enough money boosting the local economy out of recession - whattheheck. Well, I am not complaining because they bought me some sarungs! *tumpang bahagia!* yay!
This time, I see something different. Aboriginal art on wooden err. What’s that anyway? I’m very innocent. *cough*
[holy cow! liddis also can?]
Ask Claudine! I’m sure she can tell! >.<
After some marketing and feeling rather happy after spending some money, we headed off for lunch.
I requested for the local famous:
BABI GULING! (suckling pork)
Before I go to Bali, plenty of my friends were telling me about this store.
“You have to try that pork dish!”
“It tastes very nice!”
I’m a pork person - I love everything about pig ^^
Pork intestine and tummy in BKT, pork leg in dark sauce etc etc I even own a pair of pig skin shoes!
Anyway, this is the lady cutting the pork.
huh! Very skillful and don’t play play I tell you! (say this is kia-su Singaporean’s style )
I ordered the babi guling special:
It wasn’t THAT special. The pork meat was surprisingly lean. The cracker was alright. Nothing to shout about thou. The sauce was quite spicy. I didn’t have the rice because I was still suffering from Bali-Rice Overdose Syndrome.
In my personal opinion: Babi guling is just slightly overrated.
But it was fun sharing an awesome touristy experience with my family!
You should see dad’s facial expression - he got a bit disappointed when the store couldn’t supply us a plate of pork skin that we ordered earlier on. Ha!
Anyway, the next stop: Taman Ayun Royal Family Temple.
You have to pay certain amount of money to go to the Temple…
But you don’t actually get to go into the actual temple.
The last stop of the day: Tanah Lot
It was a hot day, therefore we didn’t stay till sunset. After all the walking and touring around.. I was very tired. Thanks for the congress which had eaten up so much energy of mine.
Worst, my dad was still so hyper going around =.=!
Till then. See you in next post! xoxo
