Third Day in Bali : Ubud-Uluwatu

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015

Since we spent a day at the beach yesterday, we went to Ubud in the 3rd day ˭̡̞(◞⁎˃ᆺ˂)◞*✰ Ubud is like the other side of Bali since it's all about rice fields, hills, and trees. Super green compare to the blue-ist sea.

Before hit the road, we had brunch at Sisterfields, Seminyak. I had a lot of good things about this place and how their foods are good.

It is a very comfy place, with authentic western brunch foods, as you can see in the photo. We quite amazed that all of the people are tourists (∗॔꒪⺫ॢ꒪) and mostly (or all?) they are Bule (how to say this in English? I want to say they are western but i can't say Australian is western. It's actually white people, but i don't mean to be racist. Just trying to explain). I guess they love the foods here, like we do!

I like the idea of this cold mineral water  set on the table after you sit down. It's very refreshing since Bali is hot and we didn't have to wait for our drinks.

Pretty today!

I honestly can't tell the exact name from their menu ɿ (•᷄દ•᷅) but trust me, none of foods we ordered that day were sooo good♡♡. I ordered the breakfast one with poached egg. Definitely must-visited-cafe. I will come back next time i visit Bali!

Ubud is quite far from Seminyak, so we left immediately.

Fresh air, clear sky and rice fields. Ubud here we are! ⁺✧.(˃̶ ॣ⌣ ॣ˂̶∗̀)ɞ⁾
We came here to visit this cool coffee spot, Bali Pulina Agrowisata. It is a civet farm (luwak) and they made their own coffee. Luwak coffee is quite famous in Indonesia since the taste is different and sold at high price. Bali Pulina is placed on top of rice fields hills, which is really cool because you can enjoy your coffee with this view.

*birds chirping in a distance*
Just at the  moment you enter the gate, you'll be greeted by a guide who will show you around and how the coffee made.

This is Luwak's poo, and this is what you gonna drink.
Basically, Luwak coffee is processed from their feces, which is super weird to think of Σ(ಠิωಠิ|||) But the coffee taste different because Luwak has cultivate the coffee beans they eat into high quality coffee beans.

After an explanation, it's time to order a coffee. As my friend's recommendation, we ordered one set of their various tea and Luwak coffee for each of us. To be honest, after the coffee was served, i just remembered that i don't drink black coffee and i regret my order over Luwak coffee.

Those are the coffees, also a snack bar. We didn't try the cookies but those yellow thingy is delicious. It is tuber chips, and they made it theirselves, but unfortunately it is not for sale ( ´•̥ו̥` ) We had decided to buy it for souvenir, tho.

The lounge. But lucky us we got empty bungalow down below, so we got like a private place.

My upper arm looks like a big chicken thighs that KFC willing to buy.

Here comes our coffee! I arrogantly think to myself that there's no need to write down what kind of coffee they have from left to right just because i feel i can remember them all (*꒦ິ⌓꒦ີ) Now i have no idea what are those and the best one. If i am not mistaken, the best one is ginger coffee.

After we finished all, we went around for a documentation, of course.

They have this wooden terrace protrudes from the edge of the hill so we can look down to this amazing view. It gives us chill, too ˓⁽͑ʺˀ́˙̻ˁ̀ʺ⁾̉ʾʾ ᵏᵞᵅ˞ᵎ

We have planned some alternative plans we wanted to go after this but the choice went to watching Kecak Dance at Uluwatu Holy Temple. To be mentioned, Ubud and Uluwatu are far way apart and we have to turn a long way to got there. Our driver kept persuade us to watch the Kecak Dance in Ubud instead (they also have like traditional studios that usually show some dance at noon) but in Uluwatu Temple, we can see the dance with ocean and sunset view. I felt sorry for our driver because it must be tiring to serve us. Sorry, mr. driver *:゚*。⋆ฺ(*´◡`)

After hours long of driving (2-3 hours) and traffic, we finally made it! It had already crowded with people. Look at the sunset! So pretty. That's their temple, in the edge of the cliff. Bali is so magical (⸝⸝⍢⸝⸝) ෆ

The entry ticket is 100k rupiah and they lent us a sheath and shawl to warp our hip to feet. It is a sacred place since it is a temple, so we need to cover up.

 Look at those women's expression when the villain came out lol

Anoman (white monkey) was actually funny and interacted with the audiences ⊂((δ⊥δ))⊃

The show started around 6 p.m. and finished around 7 p.m. We planned to go back to the hotel so our driver can go home for a rest, since it must be tiring for him, and for the fare too. Due to busy schedule, we decided to have dinner later at Seminyak or Kuta. So we spent hours of driving back with starving stomach | ू*꒦ິ꒳꒦ີ)。oO

After reaching hotel, we decided to go to Kuta, since one of my friend was staying there, and we though restaurants at Kuta would be open until midnight. We reached hotel at 9 p.m. and immediately left again.

After searching for some restaurants that still open, we chose random Greek restaurant that for us look convincing. This restaurant is called El Greco. Their owner is surprisingly fluent in Indonesian, since he had lived here for a long time.

Never in my life eating Greek foods and these dished surprisingly taste good ୧⍢⃝୨
I'm not sure it was because i was hungry or it is really delicious.

That's the fluently-speak-in-indonesian owner
 That's a wrap for today. We were going home tomorrow, which was super sad. Writing this post bring a lot of good memories back. I can't write every single events in detail but i am enjoy every little bit of it! ♡〜٩( ˃́▿˂̀ )۶〜♡

Until next post... (੭ ᐕ)੭*⁾⁾
