Bali is always a good idea – be it with your girls or your loved ones. I would never say no to a chillax weekend – pool time is THE BEST you’d see why later. So much love for GARUDA INDONESIA for flying me over in style. Your plush seats made me so well-rested & ready to explore the city!
Also, a big shout-out to FOUR POINTS BY SHERATON BALI for hosting me throughout my vacation. I’ve always stayed around Seminyak area, so it was nice to check out KUTA for a change!
Alright I’d spare you from all the grandmother ramblings, let’s check in to FOUR POINTS BY SHERATON BALI already! PS, if you’re a foodie like me, you’d be happy to know there’s plenty of cute little eateries nearby. I especially loved the local fare here, it was SO GOOD! We also had a great time checking out the many hair salons & spas all within walking distance!
Isn’t the decor of the main lobby incredibly inviting? The hanging lamps from the ceiling ME LIKE! Just couldn’t resist taking countless pictures here, oops! Greedy me just had to have a double-scoop gelato, very-much needed for this hot climate. Thank you Awang!
Wasted no time in basking under the sun. What I really love about this hotel is the fact that I can literally jump into the lagoon pool from my balcony! The start of my BALI vacation looks promising already!
There’s a couple of room options, but if you’re looking to stay here, I highly recommend the direct pool access ones!
Not usually the type who wakes up early enough to enjoy breakfast, but the spread here is just simply amazing. Never mind if I need to sacrifice my sleep! As the saying goes – a happy meal leads to a happy mood all day! That’s me – my mood is highly determined by my tummy’s level of satisfaction!
Managed to squeeze in yet another pool time pre-flight! Yes there’s a rooftop pool too & it’s as beautiful up here! If only this vacation didn’t have to end so soon…
Thank you so much once again FOUR POINTS BY SHERATON BALI for your kindest hospitality. I had a splashing good time! Oh well, all good things must come to an end. Till next time, Bali!
Our Bandung trip was so press-packed with activities which made feel extremely productive! I’m the sort who likes to waste no time upon reaching a destination especially when I’m abroad. The rule I live by? Spend all day exploring all the attractions & sleep like a baby at the end of it all.
Happy faces aplenty, trust me, we were not feeling fatigued one bit. The only thing growling was perhaps my tummy, oh well what’s new? It’s always nice to travel with someone who’s got high energy & as enthusiastic as you when it comes to taking photos. Everyone say hello to our very awesome tour-guide Beng Beng!
Beng Beng kept us so entertained on board it was the first time ever we were not sleeping during a bus ride. I’m usually the sort who doze off during history classes, but his presentation was so interesting I was actually listening intently for once!
Got extremely excited upon seeing horses on the streets, I almost wanted to abandon my tour & play with the horses instead. I really wonder how some of my friends deal with my ridiculous thoughts all the time? But Beng Beng reassured me that I will get to play with one before the day ended.
Here we are at our first destination – Floating Market Lembang. Weather here is so amazing you can have nice hair all day & your makeup wouldn’t run, I promise you. A cardigan/jacket is definitely necessary, it wouldn’t be good to catch a chill.
Of course, the glutton in me had to emerge eventually. Just when everyone was doing their toilet rounds, I was sneaking off by myself to get some food.
Being here totally transformed us into overgrown kids & at one point, we were attempting to have a cotton candy battle. But hey, there’s nothing wrong with reliving your childhood days!
Oh what a bummer my period had to strike just when I was about to try out the flying fox! It seemed like a lot of fun & everyone wanted to go over & over again. Bleah!
This was actually a set-up for a wedding proposal & we had no idea & started making this our photoshoot corner! We were wondering for the longest time why this man was giving us the dagger stare from afar? Oops!
Doesn’t Estelle look incredibly adorable in pink? Prior to this trip, I had no clue she actually embraced bright colours! Welcome to the club my dear, I can officially call you my sister now!
I’m turning into another person altogether here & I’m loving this transformation. Let me sit by the lake all day & bask in the sunshine while I have my afternoon nap!
Thank you so much AirAsia for making this trip happen! This ain’t the end of it, stay tuned to my third post on Bandung coming soon!
Woke up feeling incredibly excited despite the obvious zombie-looking eyes which of course I decided to mask with oversized sunnies. Yes I was anticipating this much-deserved break so much I survived with 3-hours of sleep!
Picture volcano trekking & tea plantations. We’re about to find out if I’d crumble in another land altogether, friends of mine are alarmed by the fact that I’m giving nature a chance considering the fact that I was so against it in the past. Seriously Agri?
I’m ready for you now Bandung, of course not without my awesome girlfriend Estelle Kiora. Let’s see if bubbly personality goes hand in hand with this serious split personality me? Don’t flake on me now my dear, you know we’re about to have a roller-coaster ride, just me & you, together forever.
Helloo AirAsia take us to wonderland right now! Oh what a perfect timing to escape the haze! I’ve flown with AirAsia a couple of times & it’s a hot favourite with my me & my friends since it’s got uber cheap deals to many destinations. Who doesnt’ love red hot deals?
PS, have you heard about the Red Carpet Service? With just a top up of $55.00 online, you’d get to enjoy a swift check-in process at a dedicated counter check in, a 2 hour access to the Skyview Premium Lounge at Terminal 1, priority boarding + priority check-in baggage & tagging. This is absolutely perfect for Estelle & I. Beat the queue & travel in VIP style, hurray!
Girls would always be girls. What’s a plane ride without camwhoring & itsy bitsy chats about boys?
Not a hungry monster anymore now that I have my inflight meal! So glad I pre-booked my Indonesian Fried Rice with Chicken Satay online because I wouldn’t be suffering in agony should I take a whiff of my neighbour’s inflight meal. I’m sure you know how it feels to be food-deprived!
A quick tip? Always pre-book your meals, they’re a lot more affordable online than purchasing on the spot! Plus, there’s quite a bit of selection, so pick whatever your tummy desires!
Airplane food is the bomb, the fried rice was so rich in flavour I helped myself to big mouthfuls each time! And the chicken satay was so succulent I actually resorted to stealing Estelle’s portion. I’m the most ultimate greedy pig you can ever find in the universe.
It was literally the best of times, I’ve never seen such beauty in my life & I wouldn’t mind staying there for awhile. Don’t forget to check out AirAsia for awesome flight deals & plan your next holiday destination!
