Flew Garuda Indonesia Airways from Singapore, via Jakarta's Halim airport, landing in Denpasar, Bali at 1130 hrs. Rejecting all the offers of transportation, I walked an hour or so to Kuta Beach. Started shopping then for 2 singlets at 3000 Rp. Carrying on, arrived in adjacent Legian Beach - which I read was "less commercialized" - and found a lodging by the name of Sinar Indah. Spent rest of afternoon at the beach and had a massage that leaves you "smelling like a flower". For dinner, ate at a place called Viva's (nasi goreng, crab & Coke for 2400 Rp). Bought another t-shirt, then found out the sun sets early here. Probed around the alleys for an hour before locating the losmen at 1930 hrs. After a shower with cockroaches, a local boy came to chat and hence begins my lesson in Bahasa Indonesian. Spent a total of 10,100 Rp today, within my budget of 23,000 Rp or SGD15 per day.
