The light drizzle and cloud-covered sky was a little disappointing, camera-wise. But on the upside, it made the walk up less of a sweaty, sticky affair!
This would have been the highest point on the ridge, with that iconic coconut tree (Read: Instagram pictures).
Unfortunately it was getting too wet for our liking and so we turned back, towards the direction of where the car was parked. And looked forward to the spa we had booked for that afternoon 😀
Walking down the ridge I began to feel my knees hurting, signs of a not-so-healthy strain which would eventually lead to some swelling and discomfort. Sigh..
Over the one week school break, Mum and I took a short trip to Indonesia, Bali – a place that has been on my list for some time. While I loved the padi fields and scenic views, most places we went to were probably too touristy for my liking. Still it was good quality time and a good getaway experience. Here are the stories.
On our first full day in Bali, I was really looking forward to visit some of their cafes. Wish granted when our driver managed to find this place – Alchemy! Serving only vegan and RAW food. It didn’t occur to me that RAW = cold food. Hence even the pizza we ordered was cold! Thankfully the mother quite liked it (or so she said) and we enjoyed some downtime in the cheerful, chill-vibes cafe.
Yes, it can truly be terrifying to embrace the unknown.
But time and again, life has shown me that out of the unknown can come many things: Knowledge, courage, authenticity, wisdom, discernment… just some of them.
Remember this and strive on.
Pretty place with a pretty name.
I’m not usually for messy aesthetics… but, there was something quite rustic and charming about the randomness of how the space was used.
Returning to this place after almost a year? Some changes to the interior, but the coffee and vibes tasted and felt as comforting as before.
Definitely moments worth remembering.
Where we decided to go for a short getaway over the National Day holiday 🙂
Yay for natural light, instagrammable tables and decor.
