... d noticed how far away we were from everything, so given how hungry we were, there was no choice but to hit the hotel restaurant. It was 11:30 and breakfast had finished at 11, but we were able to order from the lunch menu. Nay had Nasi Goreng and Neil had Soto Ayam (chicken noodle soup). It was at this point we realised how poor most of the food had been at Bali Masari Villas. Both dishes looked and tasted fantastic, so much fresher.
... burger lunch. Came back to our room and packed then went and got hair and nails done. Finished our GG the. Went and had dinner at Mezzanine - edamame and Thai fish cakes to start then duck in red curry sauce with water spinach finished off with vanilla panacotta - DELICIOUS :) got chatting to Grant and Rae who are staying at Kamuela. Very enjoyable ...
... Dayu was most sought after masseur in Bali and took the chance of opening her own salon.
She has trained her girls and you get the most wonderful massage from them all.
60 000rp for 1 hour of bliss. $6. It's called.... Dayu's :)
We greet her husband who is also a driver now. We chat for a while and then head off to Stroberi in Kuta square for daughter to buy headbands.
Her friend Megan buys them, hides the frizz or if you don't ...
... is way too warm. Its nice to jump into the pool to freshen up a bit but its so hot it almost feels like a spa!
I asked Jeremy if he thought it might be a good idea to do a honeymoon photo shoot which the resort was advertising but Jeremy said we should save our $200 and do our own. So we went down to the beach and it wasn't really a honeymoon shoot as I was the only one in the photos! lol but he did a fantastic job!
... swan?!?! I've never had something like this before, I know in the US it is customary to tip $1/2 for your room to be made up each day. Here, tipping is not customary, but appreciated for good services. The conversion rate between Indonesian rupee is roughly one to 10,000. Now it seems excessive to be leaving 10,000 of anything for an origami towel. Further accentuated by the vastly difference conversion rates. Anyhow, something to consider overnight.
