We started our day very early on the 3rd day because Sukawati Market was on our itinerary. Sukawati Market offered some of the cheapest and better quality goods compared to other shopping venues in Bali.
Operation hours : 9.00am - 5.00pm
Tips : Go to the market as early as possible and be their first customer to get the cheapest price. They belief that the first customer is a sign of good luck and they will try their hard to gain the first customer of the day.
We proceed to Nusa Dua Beach after lunch
I got to stop now to run some errands. I'm gonna continue about Tanah Lot in my next entry.
The next stop on our 2nd day in Bali was Uluwatu which is situated at the southern Bali. Officially known as Pura Luhur Uluwatu, this is actually a temple. Ulu in Balinese mean heart, Watu mean stone. This temple was built in 11th century by a Javanese priest named Empu Kuturan also known as Empu Raja Kerta.
We went there to see the famous Kecak Dance which will be held 6.00pm everyday. The men's chorus chants the words Cak ke-cak ke-cak ke-cak ke-cak in rhythm over and over again. This is the reason why this dance is called Kecak Dance.
Ok thats the end of my 2nd day. I had a long tiring but awesome day. I received several email from you guys requesting for the details of my trip. I don't really have an itinerary for Bali actually but will try my best to provide any tips. This trip was back on 2007 so I barely remember the exact details.
A taxi from Kuta to Uluwatu takes around 30 minutes up and down the winding road and will cost approx. Rp50,000 per way. Remember to ask the driver to wait for you for the trip back as it can be very difficult to find transport out from Uluwatu. Extra charges will be impose for the waiting time.
It is best if you can engage a tour guide for the whole trip and I think it will be the cheapest way of getting around Bali as the public transports there are not so convenient.
Uluwatu admission fee - RP4000.00
Kecak Dance fee - Rp50,000.00
Our next stop in Bali was Kintamani Volcano. Kintamani was one of tourist destination in Bali with an active volcano of Mount Batur and a spectacular Batur lake. It has erupted about 24 times since 1800 and still active up to now. Ok this is scary..
I was browsing through my external hard disk when I came across my holiday's photo. Maybe I should blog this. It's been few years when I visited Bali but by looking at these photos, my heart glow. Warning : There will be tons of photos LOL! I almost forgot the name of the places and details on this trip which that is why I think I should blog all my holidays so that I can remember them still..
I think I should stop here. I will post more photos and places from Bali in another entry. Have a nice Monday!
It's a lovely Monday today! I feel loved and blessed.. This is what make life worth while.
One of the collection from Urban Decay that I purchased last holiday season was this 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencils. I wanted to get myself the 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils at first but I changed my mind because the colors in this set caught my eyes. This set contains travel sized shadow pencils either can used as eyeshadow or eyeliner.
The colors in this set are :
Juju - Frosted taupe with shimmer (New exclusive)
Rehab - Medium brown with shimmer
Delinquent - Dark Purple with shimmer
Sin - Pinkish Champagne with shimmer
Clash - Turquoise with shimmer
Swatches on medium skin. Clash, Sin, Delinquent, Rehab & Juju
My favorite colors are Clash, Delinquent & Juju. Sometimes, instead of smudging them using the smudge brush, I use them as an eyeliner on my upper & bottom lids. I'm not sure if this set still available in Sephora Malaysia but it definitely a worth buying.
Weeeeehooooo it's Friday again!! *happy dance* Today will be an extra special Friday because someone is coming home and I just can't wait.
Ok, what I'm in love today is Call Me Bubbles quad palette from MAC Shop Mac Cook Spring 2012 Collection. Blame it on my dear Rachel for showing me these palette on Rae's blog yesterday. Unfortunately MAC will only launch their Spring 2012 Collection in Malaysia on 7th March 2012. We will patiently wait and grab this later.

I woke up almost every hour *sigh* I've been sleepy the whole morning, I guess I'm missing you :D I don't even have the appetite to eat lunch, I went home to take a nap but I STILL COULDN'T SLEEP! I'm struggling to keep my eyes wide open when I saw this

I would say that this is one my favorite palette. Purchased back in December 2011, this was 1 of Laura Mercier's Holiday Collection 2011. It's funny when I actually have to called to reserved 1 palette from Laura Mercier's counter in Parkson Pavillion because it was sold out everywhere.
This palette includes 12 shadows, with a mix of shimmery and matte colors, classic Laura and few new colors exclusively for this collection.
• Rich Sienna – shimmery dark brown - (new exclusive)
• Morning Dew – matte beige
• Black Coffee – matte super black, very pigmented - (new exclusive)
• Rosewood – luster finish, copper - (new exclusive)
• Pink Crystal – sequin finish, don't expect this color to be a mid-tone dusty pink. Instead it is a very light pink wash with shimmer over it.
• Sable – sateen finish, gray with subtle shimmer
• Royal Gold – luster finish, yellow gold - (new exclusive)
• African Violet – luster finish, pinkish brown

You are one of the only people who sees me as I really am. You know all my doubts, fears and insecurities and yet you are still here. I can't tell you how much that means to me. How much you mean to me. TQ :D
My wish for you is that this life becomes all that you want it to. You dreams stay big and your worries stay small. You never need to carry more than you can hold. And while you're out there getting where you're getting to. I hope you know all of us love you and want the same things too. Yeah, that's my wish for you..
I went for a short trip to Melaka last Sunday until Tuesday. When mentioned about Melaka, all I can think of is MAKAN! I discovered a few of a new makan place that are dangerously delicious.. (Well, its Ina who brought me there actually..hahahaha)
Pak Putra Tandoori
One of the best tandoori shop that I've been to is actually located in a small shop in Taman Kota Laksamana and its only a couple of minutes drive from Jonker Street. The owner of this restaurant is a Pakistani called En. Qamar. It was only 6.30pm when we arrived but most of table were already full! I forgot to take any pictures there but here's a few courtesy from Mr Google.com
This stall open only for breakfast and is located opposite Pacific Inn Hotel and next to Methodist Girl's School, Jalan Tengkera. I didn't get a chance to come here during our last visit to Melaka so this time I really have to make an effort to try this famous mee goreng. A friend told us to come before 8am because sometimes everything will finish by then and I was like "What??! Before 8am? Seriously?" And she was right. We arrived at 7.50am and the tables were all full! We actually shared a table with 2 others customers.
Nadeje Cake Shop
People been talking about this cake shop for quite sometimes. We even get our friend to help us to packed a few slices for us to try and the cakes were awesome!! So I told Ina that we need to pack 1 whole cake back to KL. Nadeje Cake Shops are located at Plaza Mahkota & Dataran Pahlawan Melaka. They open at 11.00am and we queued up before the cafe is open for business. We ended brought back 2 whole cakes and a few slices more of a different flavors. They packed in a special bag which cost us RM8 each with ice packs inside.I still love the original flavor.. There is 1 thing that should be improve by the operator of this cafe is that they need to educate the staff on a proper communication skill. Words spread on how inefficient and rude the staff were and its proven right. I experienced exactly the same situation.
