Ultimate guide: 5 things to do in Bali

Staring a travel plan can seem totally overwhelming, as in the cost for your transportation, the distance between the airport to hotel, or to travel from one place to another. Things can go wrong anytime you travel, so make sure you do your homework. For me, it is a rewarding experience to plan your trip on your own loll. So my friends they are lucky, hahahah! I love making plans.

As I made plan to visit Bali on November with my friends, I came across by chance to visit the most beautiful islands. I was lucky enough to have my air ticket, swimsuit, red wines and floats all sponsored due to some collaboration I had. 

I fell in love with Bali on my first visit to Indonesia on 2016, it is a small beautiful island and it own the panorama and the unique culture. Bali has many interesting places. Don’t come to Bali if you’re looking for a city life, the island remain largely undeveloped, there are bars and beaches only where people come to relax.  So here’s the ultimate guide: things to do in Bali.

   1. Visit the ancient temple

There are thousands of incredible temples in Bali, but it would be impossible for you to visit all of them. So here’s my recommendation for you to explore the most impressive temples such as Tanah Lot, Uluwatu, Petitenget, Saraswati temple and etc.  
Tanah Lot:

Tanah lot is a rock formation off the Indonesian Island and it is completely surrounded by the ocean water. Attracting over a million visitors every year, Tanah Lot known as one of the most visited landmark in Bali.  I was impressed by the unique sight, I enjoyed the sea breeze and the view in front of me especially the cliff from the other side.  Tanah lot was definitely worth a visit and filled with surprise.

Tips: Take a 360degree panorama shot as Tanah Lot is one of the most instagrammer place. And do not wear slipper as the rocks are very slippery.

2. Sip a cocktails at Potato Head Beach Club and Rock Bar
Potato head is divided to lounge and pool area.  We took a seat at the pool area facing the stunning beach front pool, with a minimum spending of 500,000 IDR. I’d really recommend you to make a reservation to avoid disappointment or long wait. Sometimes you might won’t be able to get a seat at the lounge if you are visiting during peak season.

We grabbed some beers that night, not forget to mention they also offer plenty of cocktails and side dishes. So If you are looking for beach clubs, Potato head definitely is the place to be.

Tips: It’s best to go on 11am when they are about to open so you manage to get a sunbed if you are looking for a sunbreak or to swim in the infinity pool overlooking the ocean. Also for an alternate plan, you can visit on 5-6pm to catch the sunset.

3. Snorkeling at Nusa Lembongan and enjoy the paradise beaches

Well the weather is unpredictable. We went snorkeling when it rained and my friends didn’t want to cancel the tour ( I kind of wish they had, I was so afraid of storm and waves LOL) . The water got dirty, the sea surface covered with trash and the underwater was cloudy.  Frankly it isn’t as much fun because the water is colder and many times I tried to return to the boat.

Tips: Avoid snorkeling in wavy conditions, the sea may be rough and it’s difficult for you to swim.

4. Enjoy seafood dinner on the beach

Jimbaran is best known for seafood cuisine, also a very unique experience to dine on the sand and to savor the Indonesian’s style seafood. However the cost is relatively expensive, we spent around RM400++ just for a set of dinner ( portion for 1 pax) which including 4 pcs of prawns, 6 pcs of clamps, 1 lobsters, 1 crabs and 6 squids. Imagine if we order 4 pax, RM400 x 4= RM 1600

   5. Getting the locals to cook for your food
So we came up with a better idea, instead of doing the tourist typical thing, we decided to source for our own seafood and get a local chef to cook for us. Our driver from Indonesia he brought us to the market and we get a local chef to grill. We ate as much as we could, and a smart way to save your budget!

Where to go: Uluwatu market
How to get there: By the local driver
Cost: Rm 300++ for 4 PAX ONLY

Nano Resvera: Healthy Red Wine

We’re all adults. We have problems, bad days and also times that we couldn’t get to sleep.  As someone who’s struggled with insomnia since April, I was looking for a better way to improve my sleep quality. And not to mention, it was extremely exhausting being an owl throughout the midnight, both psychically and mentally.  While everyone is sleeping, guess I was the only one who still stay awake on my bed, scrolling my phone, check out my newsfeed, and snapchatting with dog filter. loll.  I’ve been through a very hard time on April (some personal issue), and I get to sleep on 5am every night. That’s suck!

Until I chanced upon the opportunity to experience Nano Resvera by Nano Japan. At first I dint hold out much hope, but I’ve decided to give it a try.   It’s better than I reach out for sleep medication as most have side effects; some may be addictive. 

What is NANO Resvera: 
Nano Resvera is a premium product made of Pinot Noir grapes from the organic vineyards of Oregon, USA that is then flown to Japan for production. Using advance Japanese distillation technology, the grapes were fermented as how they would be in producing red wine, but bypassing the alcoholic production stage, therefore it is a 100% alcohol free and sugar-free red wine. 

The parcel reached 2 days before I went to BALI.  Everything inside is well packed with lots of bubble wrap and sealed with aluminium foil around the bottle ring. After unwrapping the box, I was impressed by the red wines bottle as it is beautifully presented in a sleek, corked classy bottle. I thought it would be nice if I bring it along to Bali. 

Here’s a picture of me with the red wines. LOL

It tastes exactly just like the actual red wines, except for the lighter colour. Let's check out the product benefits:
  • ·         Reduces cholesterol, high blood pressure
  • ·         Prevents heart diseases and stroke
  • ·         Accelerates fats burning
  • ·         Recover poor eyesight vision
  • ·       Anti-aging with powerful proven antioxidants

Seriously, though, is it true that Nano resvera can helps in fat reduction, to improve better sleep quality and anti-aging? According to the website, every glass of NANO RED WINE has health benefits equivalent to 7 glasses of actual red wine, therefore it can be enjoyed by all even children. The ingredients actually do contain natural polyphenol which is the anti-oxidant components of dark coloured grapes that found mostly on the skin and the pulps. It is generally agreed by scientist that the polyphenol content is directly proportional to the anti-oxidant activity of the grapes! :Pinot Noir has the most! So it stand to a reason that Nano Resvera is good for our health. 

It may just be me; I don’t like drinking alcohols during my trip as I don’t want to wake up hang over the next morning. This time I can drink as much as I want. I don’t have to worry about my friend getting me drunk. So far I’d say I really love this product as now I am getting a better night sleep. It is advised to drink 40-50ml after each meal, but there is no restriction it can be consumed at any time of the day as well. 

Now it's been a month after I consumed Nano Japan, it really helps to banish my dark under-eye circle and nourish my skin from the inside out. It might takes a few weeks for new skin to emerge up to the surface, so don't expect an overnight miracle :)
