Once Upon A Time In Bali.....

 Just some photos of Bali when we were there last year. Since I was doing a food post on Bali previously and somebody is going to Bali for CNY with her family. Bali is a strong Hindu influenced city of the largest Islamic country of the world, Indonesia. Statues of Hinduism theme are literally in each and every corner.

The Bali Bomb Memorial in Kuta, a sad reminder to the bomb attack which killed hundreds

Bali is a surfing heaven for a lot of wave fighters. Especially Aussie surfers.

Even Mr McDonald loves surfing in Bali too.

Most of the mountains in Bali are Volcanos. Which some of it are still alive or rather should I said "active".

Rice paddies field in Ubud. Magnificent view.

Sunset at Tanah Lot Temple. The temple is located on the rock just offshore. Highly commercial with lots of shops along the entrance.

Barong or the lion dance. A ritual dance portraits the fight between the good and the evil. Traditional Balinese dance with a comedic elements; the sense of humor.
A visit to the monkey jungle in Ubud. The monkeys are rather unite animals. They help each others a lot.

No sexual intention. Just statues believed to represent the female maternity. In fact, you will encounter a lot of nude sculptures, statues or paintings everywhere in Bali.

The Balinese are renown coffee maker too.

A visit to coffee farm actually entitled us these many cups of coffee for free. The only cup that we paid was the coffee Luwat. The one that has been specially "re-process" by that cat-alike creature. The coffee beans straight from the poo of that animal are claim to be among the finest.

Just like any other part of Indonesia, everyone are millionaires or billionaires.

And if you are wondering where Bali is. Denpasar is the name which been widely used in most of the International airport.
