Season Culture and Shopping!
Located in central Bali.
What you can find in Ubud are scenic rice fields, small villages, art and craft communities, ancient temples, palaces, rivers and very happy tourists. =)
We stayed in the very awesome hotel called the Green Fields Hotel and Bungalows, within walking distance to BBDDD!!
Rise and shine!
Comfy day bed at the patio.
Bought this gorrrrrrrgeous dress from Body and Soul in Kuta for only RP120,000 (RM40). A must visit shop! They have the most beautiful sundresses at such cheap prices it makes your grandma smile. The shop is everywhere! Just ask aorund. =)
And the patio overlooks the green paddy fields. How awesome!
It’s a shopping day! We were going to Ubud Market to practice our bargaining skills.
Passed by a lovely cottage on the way.
Bali has a lot of stray dogs. No offense but they all look kinda ugly and they definitely don’t look like… dogs.
Most of them look like hyenas.
Some like horses
Some like tigers
And on very rare occasions, you see the Polardog.
Must must must come to this place for shopping! And remember to haggle the price to at least 1/3 the original price they give. Whatever sold in Ubud is actually sold double the price elsewhere (Kuta, Seminyak), so this is the time for you to buy all the cheapskate souvenirs for your friends (i bought mine in the airport and it’s three times the price).
Learnt my lesson!
Ubud is most famous for paintings.
I was looking for something that goes gorgeous for my apartment but they don’t have any cottage paintings.
Something like this! Anyone can tell me where to find (cheap ones)?
A lot of cocks.
A lot of chicks.
Everybody who goes to Bali comes back with Giraffes!
I heart giraffes. I brought two back with me.
Okay the price i paid wasn’t the lowest but Icy don’t be sad, because i saw the exact same giraffe sold in a furniture shop in PJ priced at RM159. Be happy!
Kenny and Cheesie statues.
Balinese are really fascinated with penises aren’t they.
Eh… wrong rotation.
Should view liddis.
These are the only two pictures you can see a complete Icy face.
😀 (ya this is a caption to elaborate his expression)
Puri Saren Dance
Is the exact same story as Kecak dance. Just much slower. Yawn.
It really intrigued me how the dancers all have the exact same expression–their eyes pried opened to maximum, lips curved at such an impossible angle it looks like a cross between a forced smile and a constipated face.
But it’s really amazing cuz they look exactly like this.
At night we went to Warung Enak for dinner.
Before going back to rest.
Next up: Season Paddy Fields
mm sometimes wonder y do u censor icy’s face out? 0.0
She wants to remain famously anonymous! 🙂
wow.. rili nice pics u have here..
“Whatever sold in Ubud is actually DOUBLE the price of elsewhere (Kuta, Seminyak)” >> means more expensive or what? i tot u wanna say “HALF the price” izit? or maybe i’m too shallow to understand it..
wtf. pardon me. It’s late at night. I meant to say “Whatever sold in Ubud is actually sold double the price elsewhere”
Why got Polardog one! WTF only you can find something like this.
Wow… You took alot of nice photos~!!! ^_^
Bali… a nice place to visit too…
I spotted a Tasmanian tiger!
Nice dress! 🙂
LOL. Your brushing teeth very funny.
where to stay? Ubud or Kuta?
funniest description of the dancers…hahaha…
OMG! Bali is sooooooooooooooooooooooooo colourful. and I loveeee the hotel you stayed in.
btw, that is one huge bat
Ubud market is so worth going. I’m into all things ‘home furnishing’ (hence my blog: howshouse.com) and there you can get loads of wood furnishings for cheap. Great place for bargaining (use the walk away trick, they’ll always call ya back). Many local home stores sell their wares here for a markup of up to 1000% seriously. i bought a wood sculpture for rm12 and found that it was sold here for rm160! no kidding
haha,yea..walk away trick is da best!!!
it does work seriously..
like 1 time i went to pasar seni…
then saw this guess handbag very glittery n nice..then i keep staring at it..like wan to buy
then i walk away..then the seller begin to bargain for me,lol!
and yet i didnt buy..haha.
Your pictures are nice! Taken by who? you guys have an official photographer following you?
BTW,so funny ah the dancers..all same muka oly.-_- no defferents…
that kind of cottage painting cheap cheap ah…i think taman tunn gt alot paintings there wor,but duno cheap or not. Ikano also have a painting shop. or i paint u one,lol…
why bali so obssess with dick?…..no real dick around? or a voodoo thingy.-_-
I’m a loyal reader of ur blog. Also an illustrator. How much budget u have in mind for a cottage painting? And what size? Maybe I can help? Haha.
Maybe some ppl there worship dick? O_O Like those carve out statues
None of the dogs can compare to your Cheddie, ya?
cheesie, which room type u guys stayed at green field hotel?izit the ‘bale pesamuan’?
opps..ok, my question sounds weird.. =P
which room type did u guys choose?izit ‘bale pesamuan’?
are u sure the polardog is a stray one?!
it’s so chubby…
and quite kawaii in a beary way…
all this time i tot u had a grudge on ICY…
my stupid mistake
pretty stuff! awesome paddy sceneries…like very back-to-nature atmosphere..can’t wait for more of these pics.
how much is the giraffe? i saw one approx. AUD25.
bali bali omg i’m missing it so muuuuuuuch!
The polar dog is very ugly
My preference is if people don’t post pictures of me online wtf…
but if DIE DIE also must, then censor my face lar …
so yeah, Cheesie censors my face because I ask her to. Same as I did with Coconuts.
Apa ni conspiracy theory all lar?
@ariescandy: haha.. aiya.. no issue.. must censor lar, cause I look like those dogs that Cheesie posted LOL! 😛
How funnyeh you put up those stray dogs… but i see the first dog like in bad state?
*LOL* at warung enak’s pic
ya loh, the dogs damn gross right T___T when i went thailand the dogs were ALSO mix-bred until i can’t recognize what creatures they are !
How did you bring back the giraffes? Check in?
What a great experience you had. Well, you learned quickly about the price. One third may sounds silly but it is true, especially as the seller tend to also give significantly higher price to foreign tourists. They have at least three categories, local Balinese (those do not speak Balinese fluently), Indonesian (from other provinces), and foreigners.
