It’s been almost 2 months since I got back from Bali and I’m missing it already. Always a #beachgirl!
So on the 5th day of our one week trip, we moved to the last and final villa, Samaja Villas, for the stay. It was just 3 mins drive away from Nyuh Bali Villa (:
Breakfast area!


The room wasn’t ready so they offered us complimentary balinese massage for an hour. Talk about good service (: The massage was sooooo comfortable and therapeutic. Felt heavenly compared to the shitty one we did the night before at some roadside shop.Checked into our villa after the glorious massage!
Our courtyard/dining area where we had our meals and chilled the night away watching TV.
Bathroom which has direct access to our private pool. I’mma make my future house like that!
The villa was very clean and spacious, and the staff were extremely accommodating and helpful!
You can check it out here -> no time and headed out to Legian beach to surf! :DThis time we rented our own surfboards and did it without an instructor. We paid around $30SGD for unlimited hours of board usage, pretty decent!

Lol looking like a Balinese man?
It was super fulfilling to master a new watersport and I really LOVE surfing. Can’t wait to get my hands on it again. It’s actually quite hard to master it but I love challenging myself.
Was super tired after surfing for like 3 hours and we headed back to the room for some room service dinner.
I love my mee soto!
Corridor to our villa unit(:
Had an early night and woke up early the next day! Was super excited cos we were gonna visit this “secret beach” in Bali which was…absolutely perfectttt!
Brekkie first!
We hired a driver through the hotel and we paid approximately $50SGD for the entire day. Basically, you can pick the places you wanna go or you could ask the driver to bring you around based on his recommendations. We decided hiring a driver was better than cabbing cos the “secret beach” was pretty far away from where we were and it would have been quite expensive and troublesome to get a cab.After a 40 mins drive, we finally reached Uluwatu Finn’s Beach Club! Finn’s beach club is the cheaper alternative to the uber luxurious Karma beach club. It’s still super nice nonetheless. We had to pay $25SGD per person for entry fee. $15 could be used for restaurant credit so technically, the entrance fee was just $10.

So we had to take an inclinator down to the beach where the beach club’s at and it was very nice seeing the view from the top.


No idea what this fool was doing hahah
The beach was too nice to not spam pictures heh
Daniel just asked me last night if I wna go for another beach vacation in November hahah.
Karma beach is definitely my favorite beach in Bali so far and honestly I hate to share it here where the secret location is cos not a lot of people know about it hence it’s a lot less crowded than other beaches, which is what I love. But I guess sharing is caring so visit Karma beach if you do visit Bali!
I still prefer Boracay beaches to Bali’s though.After spending our afternoon there, we headed to Padang beach for a more local experience. Coincidentally, there was a Ripcurl surfing competiton going on!

Wanted to try the famous Naughty Nuri’s pork ribs for dinner but the queue was massive so we went to Wahaha pork ribs instead which is pretty famous as well.

Yummy pork chop! Daniel and I loved it!
Had a restful night and flew back to Singapore the next morning.
Super thankful that this trip happened cos it was a good respite from all the heavy workload in Singapore. And it was timely since Daniel started work a week after we were back. I’ll always love the beach for its infinite border and calmness from the waters. Thank you for the beautiful accommodations. I’ll definitely return again (: And most importantly, thank you Daniel for being there. You’re my favorite travel companion.
One week wasn’t enough cos we wanted to explore more places at the outskirt so…BRB, Bali.

Hello, I’ve missed you.

August 25, 2014
Yes, I really do. I miss penning down my thoughts and doing pictorial updates (though I guess Instagram does a better job now). I miss doing random vlogs, writing down personal thoughts, answering though some questions can be annoying hahah. But work has really taken a toll on me now I barely have time to even surf the net leisurely, not to mention watch TV.
Besides, there’s been so much “blogger drama” going online recently that I just don’t even feel like being active online though I’m not directly involved in it. It just kills the vibe you know? Why can’t people just get along fine or if they don’t, why can’t they mind their own business and get on with their own life. I always don’t get it. Why spend your precious time and life hating on people who won’t make a difference in your life when you can use the time on better and happier things instead like close friends, reading, watching a good sitcom or even on your pet? There will ALWAYS be something or someone to hate on be it self-entitled, big-headed bloggers who think that just being a blogger is the greatest deal alive (not targeted at anyone specifically but let’s just say I have a distaste for such personalities), or keyboard warriors who blindly follow the crowd and hate on whoever’s on the “main topic”. Oh, come on.


Saw this quote and I think everyone, including myself should constantly remind ourselves.
“You never truly know someone until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.”
Haha don’t get me wrong, I’m not gonna write another “a bloggers’ life is actually tough” blah blah blah post. Life is great to keep harping on the same string (:
So like I said I’ve been sooooo busy with TJM (like even busier than before) cos business has picked up over the past few months and I’ve made it a point to work at least 6 hours everyday, usually 10. Sometimes I get some nights off to meet Daniel for dinner or meet my friends for drinks but other than that, I’m always working.
Here’s a little pictorial update of my August so far!
Supposed to be a short work trip alone but Donna decided to join me 3 days before I flew off. Lol this is gonna sound gay but Donna exudes happy vibes cos she’s so bubbly and talkative so being around her for 3 days straight was jolly!
Daniel just started work last month so we have been meeting lesser so I cherish every moment with him now. Happy to even have quick dinners with him(:
Quick brunch with Judith after she came back from Tokyo to catch up and to take some pictures. I really love taking photos (not just of myself of course hahaha) so I appreciate days like these where we walk around aimlessly to take pictures.
Lol this is a super unglam picture of her but I think it’s quite cute and funny. Now you know how she takes all her food pictures! She’s also another bubbly girl I love to be around with 😀
Obligatory selfie cos I….love my complexion now! Revealed on my IG why my complexion is getting better so too bad for you if you don’t follow me ^^
Love this entire outfit by!
Glad that I wrote this blog post even though it’s 3.15am now. Really miss this space and I’ll be back as soon as I can. I’m way more active on Instagram so I’ll see you more on the other side <3
