Our flight departed at 0635AM from Jakarta and arrived in Bali around 0930AM local time. First stop, fitting the dress. My dress was a little too big, so it need some adjustment. After that, straight to Ibu Oka restaurant at Ubud to enjoy the most delicious suckling pig in the whole world (according to Anthony Bourdain) hahaha
Yummmm... Mission accomplished, next destination, Bali Bird Park. I wasn't a big fans of birds, coz they poo almost anytime anywhere hahaha but the park was really nice and clean and they got many exotic birds, so colorful :)
Watched those birds fly got us hungry again hahaha actually we just need to go to 1 last place before went back to our hotel which almost took 2 hours by cars. The place called Naughty Nuri. It served Baby Back Ribs. And it was goooood... Oh so goooooood... Very sweet and tender and juicy, SUPERB!!!
Later that night, I had to do the fitting once again. This time, the dress fitted hahahaha

Since tomorrow we'll be very busy, the early plan was to go to Dreamland beach and relax. But the driver suggest us to do the water sports since December 20th was Sunday, the place would be very crowded. I didn't like that plan, water sports must be exhausting. We need to be fresh on the wedding day. Plus, I didn't want to look too tanned!!! Hahahaha but, we did it anyway.
We went parasailing, tubing, and diving. It was amazing!!! I love diving and feeding the fishes, tropical fishes, they're so cute. But I couldn't find Nemo :(
After did all that, we were sooo tired but still pushed ourself to go to Dreamland even only for 1 hours hahaha coz after Dreamland, we need to go to Uluwatu, watched Kecak dance and enjoying sunset.
Kecak is the most unique Bali dances. No music or instruments to go with the dance therefore there are 70 men giving their best voices and fill the open stage throughout the performance.
The beautiful sunset...
After that, we went back to the city and had dinner at Ibu Chandra, another suckling pig restaurant but to me, Ibu Oka still the best d(^o^)b

Wishing you a wonderful beginning and love to last a lifetime! \(^o^)/

No after party yesterday but there's a brunch for today :D
All bridesmaids and best men and closest friends shared stories of yesterday event. And of course, the famous line from the happy couple, " YOU'RE NEXT!" hahahaha
Later, me and my friends went shopping for souvenirs at Kampung Bali and Krisna. And then went to have some snack, Sate Penyu (Turtle Satay). Of course it's not the real turtle, it was just a simple pork on sticks. Look good, smell good, taste goooood...
Then, we went to Discovery Mall to enjoy the sunset. The Mall located by the beach. People can took pictures, played some kite or just sit and relax there.
For dinner we went to Bubba Gump Restaurant. It was inspired from the movie, Forrest Gump. The exterior was amazing, not to mention the interior.
The foods was okay, not so bad, not that good. A little bit expensive though. But I love the dessert, Cookies Sundaes.
