Warung Yogya serves traditional Indonesian foodI simply don't understand why foods in general are pretty expensive in Bali. Well, I meant it for tourists or visitors. Trust me, there is no correlation between price and quality/taste in Bali. Taste is subjective, and I am not prejudice but what would be the second to none food in Bali if it is not Balinese foods or traditional Indonesian foods. Why should I bother to eat Western, Japanese, Thai or Chinese in Bali? Nevertheless, not all the local cuisine can suit your taste buds.Don't judge a …

After got off from Suzuki APV, we were ushered through the restaurant to greet a massive white sandy b…

Iconic Uluwatu Temple overlooking Bali SeaThe journey to Pura Luhur Uluwatu Temple was as if taking ages. Zig-zagging, up down the slope, the view had flipped from the bustling concrete jungles to the real green, with sights of convenience stores, villas and motels poked out occasionally.

Before leaving, our driver -  Mr Made reminded us to watc…

Fashionista in UbudUbud Attractions Unlike the coastal areas such as Kuta, Legian or Sanur, Ubud sits right in the middle of Bali island. Less rowdy, Ubud is more divine for vacationers that are up for nature, culture, arts and spiritual. In other words, Ubud is the place to see the faces of an authentic Bali and Balinese.

Tegalalang rice terrace field Tegallalang near Ubud in BaliDespite growing up in Asia, eating rice as a staple, you must be wondering why I was still amazed when it comes to a spread of massive emerald green of rice field. Trust me, the view of Bali's rice field is unique. Majestic, if I am only allowed to use a word to describe it. Unlike the paddy or rice fields in Malaysia or Thailand, Bali's rice field is beautifully carved line by line, cascading over steep hill slope hence it is like a postcard picture of a green waterfall blending with coconut tr…

Written by Shirley T   
Saturday, 17 August 2013 08:34
Rice paddy fieldsIf you've been following my food posts, there are probably only a couple restaurants out of many hundreds that I would never recommend to my readers. Ironically, I Made Joni that is about 5 minutes from Ubud Downtown is one of them. Stay away from I Made Joni Restaurant! All I can tell is we were conned to walk into this restaurant. Believing our driver cum tour guide was not likely to recommend 'something not-that-bad' to tourists, we decided to stop looking at the cheap and good foods in Ubud …
