Three weeks after the Porto trip, my familly and I flew to Bali to be with my whole family. The whole clan, siblings with their spouses and kids including my severely ill mother were there. It was a memorable holiday. The itinerary and activities were adjusted to my mother’s condition. She has been stable. Her condition has not been worsened or become better but she was physically able to travel by plane from Jakarta to Bali. My family and I see this as a gift.
So there we were, making memories together as a clan. Here are some pictures I took.
One day we went to Pandawa Beach, down south.
Pantai Pandawa or Pandawa beach. The name Pandawa comes from Mahabharata epic, the five Pandava brothers.
Along the way down to the beach there are statues of Pandava brothers (Yudisthira, Bima, Arjuna, Nakula & Sahadeva).
The other day water sport was on the day programme for my daughter G and her cousins, destination Tanjung Benoa.
While they were at the sea, I played Kite with these local boys.
This holiday was extra memorable because I celebrated my 43th birthday with my loved-ones. It was a birthday lunch in Ubud.
Balinese nasi campur; steamed white rice with side dishes. Delicious!
Moi, the birthday girl, born in the early Seventies. The pic was taken by my dear husband.
When visiting Bali, my family and I always eat at Jimbaran Bay. There are countless seafood restaurants selling the fresh catch of the day. When you enter the restaurant, you are to choose the seafood (fish, mussels, cockles, shrimps, lobters etc.) first. Then it will be weighed and prepared for you. Jimbaran bay has several beaches. Coming from Kuta or Sanur, the first beach of Jimbaran is Kedonganan. I mostly eat at Ubung Cafe at Muaya beach near Four Seasons resort.
Another reason why we love to eat at Jimbaran is the view around sunset, like this one. Breathtaking!
After a week in Bali, I went to Jakarta. However the next post would be about Seminyak restaurant review. Stay tuned!
