Bali Trip Part 2/4 : Kintamani Restaurant, Shoping at Ubud and Hard Rock Cafe Bali


Salam and Hey thanks for viewing this 2nd part of my BALI Travelogue. please proceed with the PART 1 if you haven't reach yet. again, i will listing out some of the Bali's tourist attractions which i've visited during this 4D3N trip. enjoy it! :)

Kintamani Restaurant (Halal Foods)

Harr kalau tak yakin jugak tak tau lah! LOL haha
The magnificent view in front of the restaurant, an active volcano, Mount Batur.
veriety of foods being served in buffet style and here, finally i met lot of Malaysian.
exquisite interior. love it :)

Alhamdulillah, what a relief to find out that our lunch here is definitely in a Halal restaurant. to be honest, traveling in a group of Non-Muslims is not easy especially when it comes about foods. yup assuredly, i've mentioned and reminding the tour guide for countless times that i can only eat Halal foods yet me and my colleague (the only Moslem!) were still hesitant on some places...

Anyhow, i fancy the delicate interior of this restaurant. haha i felt like feasting in a Javanese castle which this is like only the dining area LOL Anyhow, the foods are good! idk was it a padang or minang or original Balinese kinda cook yet they are the Indonesian cuisine. you can expect a delectable buffet spread inclusive main course, satay is also included, desserts; bubur pulut hitam kauw kuih muih a very nice spring rolls, fruits, coffee and etc etc. yup a thumbs up!

oh via Mr Google, they also got ala carte yar and this place is one of the franchise in which they got several of others. weihh included Singapore leyh haha ok please google for more locations yar. the buffet fees is approx IDR80,000 / pax.

Food : 4/5 (variety of choices)
Ambiance : 4.5/5 (its a fully air conditioner room)
Fees : fair and square?


Just another stop when descending down from the top. the locals are selling fruits everywhere and impressively, they took some effort to arrange them in a pyramid shape errr...haha nice!

Kopi Luwak (Civet Coffee)

the original look
after being digested hahaha and perfectly, baked coffee bean!
testing out other coffees as well.
yours truly, Kopi Luwak. take about 3 minutes to be ready.

Nah, the most expensive coffee in the world. thanks Motormouth From Ipoh for the info. this one small sample cup (same size as the cup in 4th photos above) is cost of IDR100,00 / approx. RM30. now how about the taste? HAHAHHAHAHA I totally lost my mind now HAHAHHA what a waste! HAHAHA so can be concluded that it is nothing really special about it lah~ LOL XD

Muzakarah juga berpandangan bahawa kaedah fiqhiyyah menetapkan bahawa: الأصل فى الأشياء الإباحة، ما لم يقم دليل معتبر على الحرمة iaitu hukum asal mengenai sesuatu adalah harus selagimana tidak ada dalil muktabar yang mengharamkannya. Ulama’-ulama’ fiqh muktabar menjelaskan bahawa mana-mana bijian yang dimuntahkan oleh haiwan atau yang keluar bersama najis haiwan tersebut, selagi mana ianya tidak rosak dan masih kekal dalam rupa bentuknya yang asal atau jika ditanam ia mampu tumbuh, maka ia dihukumkan sebagai mutanajjis dan bukan najis. Muzakarah juga memutuskan supaya Kopi Luwak yang dihasilkan hendaklah mendapatkan sijil pengesahan halal daripada JAKIM atau Majlis Agama Islam Negeri (MAIN) sebelum dipasarkan kepada masyarakat Islam. wallahualam..
Tirtha Empul Temple (Tampak Siring)

oh myyyy im so in love with the sarong !
the holy spring..
here the beauties in the office :)

Another temple which is also worth to visit. well, quite crowded at that bathing area yet still this place is calm and beautiful. Oh regardless of our stupid tour guide's advice, it is recommended to shop at this exit area as the stuff are obviously cheap and assuredly negotiable though the seller are EXTREMELY aggressive! yup beware as they will pull your hand, dragging you to theirs and even forcing you like if-you-are-not-buying-you're-dead! LOL

Shopping at Ubud

a local brand. a nice cafe btw :)
a coffee addict strolling with no points lol
the boss with the dayangs ...... hehe
the market in Ubud

Goshh, if only this trip is not the tour-guided-company-trip, i'd definitely spend half of a day in here! again, that STUPID tour guide brought us here when it was almost dawn and gave us like ONLY 45 minutes to stroll around this never-ending road, huh sure lah not enough time, we're even running around back to the bus when i was able getting 1 dress for myself. LOL irresponsible, bad planner and extremely stupid!

Undoubtedly Ubud is an attractive place to visit. being one of the main town in Bali n which this specific area provides a great shopping spree. lot of shops, spas, galleries, workshops of arts and handicrafts, cheap market selling galore of souvenir and more more fun stuffs which i failed to explore! :(

Hard Rock Cafe Bali (Kuta)

Hard Rock Cafe Bali, checked!
no worry, im a non-alcoholic drinker :)
:) im just a fan of music and entertainment.

Truth to be told, i am a nightlife seeker. yup I DON'T DRINK but hey, i enjoy music and live band so much. thus, rolling in hotel's comforter at 12pm is just NOT ME! well recently, I set a new goal for all my upcoming travel's itinerary, the HRC should be included in the list of MUST visit place.

Ok ya'll know that i've been to London and Ireland right? hehe yup yup sure i just can't wait to story about it as well but hey haha let me finish this Bali one first lorh. so, to be compared with their HRC, incredibly Hard Rock Cafe Bali is the best! the live band was great too! thanks for reading peeps :)

Bali Trip Part 1/4 : The Famous Uluwatu Temple and Tanah Lot

the arriving :)
the team! :)

Salam and Hey Traveler! :)

Thanks guys for being patience on waiting my travelogue post. haha surprisingly this is the fastest one as it was just happening on the last September 2014! fyi this is my company trip which is fully sponsored, thanks a lot boss! so, costing or budgeting is excluded in this blogpost yar. :')

The flight took about 2hrs and half from Kuala Lumpur to Denpasar Internaional Airport (DPS) or also known as Ngurah Rai Airport. Thus, here is the Part 1/4 of Bali travelogue. trying my best to share the beautiful look of Bali, rambling on few places that we visited, the activities, perhaps some local foods and suggested accommodation too. keep on scrolling yar! ^^

Uluwatu Temple (Pura Luhur Uluwatu)

i'm just so much in love with this walkaway ... deep and mysterious hehe
muka cam cempedak penyek lol panah weih!
stunnningggg stunninggg!
freaking nice kan?!
double stunning, Subhanallah :)
oh well, this kinda pose is compulsory! =D

Once we arrived, the bus straightaway took us to the area of Kuta South District which located one of the 9 key directional temples of Bali, The Uluwatu Temple. yup as shown in the photos, the day was freaking hot! i was sweating like hell but once i walked towards the bay, the view kills it all. it was so stunning with the sparkling calm water and that natural cliffs at the end. Subhanallah. :)

Anyhow, through my reading people always leave this place to visit near dawn. plus there gonna be a Balinese ritual performance called as 'Kecak and Fire Dance' in which we all didn't know about it. huh what a waste! ok truth to be told, our tour guide is the WORST planner i've ever met. will conclude at the end of the post, later ah!

Kuta Street

obviously in Indonesia haha
enjoying the live band outside of a mall. skip the pronunciation but hey they are GREAT! :)
tee keychain fridge magnet everything in here. im NO a collector though.

This is one of the main street in Bali. busy with vehicles and people. located great hotels, KFC, McD, Pizza Hut, bunch of seafood restaurants, pubs and bars, souvenir shops, malls and yup, the most famous one, Kuta Beach and Hard Rock Cafe/Hotel Bali are also in this district.

Seriously, it is hard to find Halal food in here. all of the seafood restaurants are serving pork. my friend claim that the KFC is halal yet i didn't make my way there. anyhow, there are plenty of Nasi Padang houses too but you just need to go deep into the aisles. i don't know how to explain but they are like behind the KFC ?? try to ask the local where is Nasi Padang shop err..good luck! haha

Tanah Lot Temple (Pura Tanah Lot)

group photo! :D
again, nice kan?!
group photo some more leyh...haha teka mana satu boss sy?! LOL
gossip girls under the bright shinny day!
its wet but still happy!
pls don't imagine what happened to her after the wave hit the shore!HAHA what a memory LOL
like a photo tampal X) impressive!

Indeed, you are not yet being in Bali if there is no photo of you at the Tanah Lot. hahaha this is only my personal thought though Tanah Lot Temple is not inclusive in that Bali's 9 directional temples. nevertheless, this temple is the popular one among tourist and also a cultural icon for photography.

The 6th photo shows the temple rested on the large offshore rock which has been shaped continuously over the years. i am so fascinated with the overall view. well, i guess please avoid the flood tide as you cannot go down there, getting near the temple area and plus, it is not cool if the rocks are covered with water. thanks for reading and :)
