    Bali pix Dec 2013

    Hi there! I went to Bali for a short trip late December. I badly needed a spa session, since I was so stressed by year-end, so I had prebooked a session at Bali Green Spa along Sunset Road. They had hotel pick-up, and it was a 2.5 hour session for 28 USD. Very satisfied, money well spent!



    doesn't look much on the outside, but great on the inside

    the spa receptionist (forgot her name); the open hut behind her is the waiting area



    the interior of the huts looked like this

    After the spa session, I was hungry already, and I asked the spa driver to drop me off somewhere I could get food. He suggested Double Six beach since it was near my place. I was lucky to get a great sunset.



    And saw some random beach babes! (for the guys on here)



    another sunset pic



    Btw, pics aren't high quality since I used a phone camera, and I don't take artsy fartsy pics. I'm a simple point and shoot girl.

    I was walking along Seminyak road when I saw this...

    for those who want to have their hairy bits waxed...



    after waxing, you'll be as smooth as this...

    See, that's why we don't understand women.
    How can we be expected to understand people who are afraid of spiders, but will pour hot wax on their leg (or bikini line, yikes!) and have the hairs yanked out by the roots.

    Would you pay $90 for a bikini wax then ?

    Or do you know the conversion ?

    I thought it was in IDR which equals close to $10 dollars which is pretty cheap. It is about $30 dollars here.

    Katie,

    See you figured out the picture posting! Looks like a nice trip. Enjoy the spa/massages in Thailand when you travel there!

    TGIF! I'm glad the workweek is over. I need to attend a seminar tomorrow (for my continuing education as a professional, ha!) but that's ok, since it's in Manila and I'll go to a mall afterwards. I like Manila in small doses only, and usually for its big malls.

    @danno: Yep, I finally figured it out. Cheers! I don't know if I'll have a massage in Thailand. I've been there twice already, and for both times, didn't get a massage, as sightseeing was my priority. But then they were both short trips. Maybe for this trip, since it will be longer, I'll get tired of sightseeing and just chill and have a massage one of those days. By the time I've finished this trip, I'll have done all the 10 SEA countries. I want to do this backpacking trip while I'm still young and energetic.

    @kingwilly: Some places in Bali were cheap, some were expensive. Depends on your activities and what you eat, where you stay - just like in any place. Same-same, I guess.

    @Miss Traveller: I hope you do make it to Bali. It's a beautiful place, and there were lots of tourists when I went there, since it was the Christmas holidays. HK is much more pricey than Bali, but I hope you enjoy it too. I found it too congested and pricey, but enjoyed the view & hike to the big Buddha place in Lantau island. From HK, you can go on a day trip to Macau. I liked the old part of the city more than the new part, which was the hotels & casinos.

    @ossierob: I think my phone cam is 5 MP. I resized the pics before uploading to photobucket; easier upload since my net is &*@#%^&...

    @koojo: Re: waxing - all in the name of beauty, I guess. lol I'm lucky that I don't have to wax or shave my legs since I'm Asian and not very hairy. As to my other bits... well, suffice to say I didn't go to that waxing place!

    @bettyboo: I'll try to post interesting pics and not just the touristy stuff. But then I was there for 3 days only and did mostly touristy things - spa, temples, monkey forest, mall and beach.

    So far all of my trips have been backpacking trips and I stay in hostels or guesthouses. For this time, I stayed at M Hostel in Seminyak, which is near Bintang Supermart (lots of cheap Bintang beer there, lol). For a lone female traveller, it was very nicely situated - fairly central, lots of shops and cheap eateries (warung), but not as busy as Kuta.

    So here's M Hostel. It's owned by an Italian guy. From the main street, you have to go inside the pharmacy to get to the place. There's another entrance from a back street, and that entrance is across some private apartments for rent.

    M Hostel's back gate was across these apartments for rent.
    drupadistudioapartments dot com
    It's beside Bonsai Villas, some Japanese-themed apartments, but based on their website, the two places belong to the same owner.

    So they sell Bintang there, at the same price as every other store. Star beer. Nice pics.

    Go to the Mall Of Asia. It has nice architecture, really different to the usual shoe box design. Part of it is open to the sky and still has aircon. Enough natural light to have plants growing there. Even the ice skating rink is partly open.
