Woke up only at 10am and was famished!
I was supposed to have gone out to sea fishing with everyone but decided against it cause the thought of waking up at 7am and heading out to the rough waters for 5 hours with a bunch of hangover people didn’t appeal to me much. On hindsight, it was a rash but good decision since everyone on the boat came back looking like a pale duck and walking around with sea legs. Clara seem to have gotten it bad and had to stay in bed for the rest of the day.
My Nasi Goreng Special was a delightful treat! I decided to take the day easy before heading out to more adventurous pursuits the next day.
Taking the day easy pretty much meant I eat, chat and swim.
Swam in the pool, getting all tanned and burnt. Sushi went out shopping but her brother and Debbie stayed around in the estate to relax as well. We tried the spa facilities, such as the steam room, jacuzzi and the hydro massage table.
Sushi came back and we all washed up before heading for dinner together in the dining room. They ordered Babi Guling for everyone which was a traditional Balinese Suckling Pig with spices and rice. It was extremely spicy but really really good. Chelsea kept asking for ice water refills! I wish I had remembered to take photos of the food but I was too hungry after a whole day of swimming to care!
After dinner, some went out to club since it was the Indonesian’s National Day and there were many happening events in town. Daryl, Sushi’s parents, siblings and I decided we preferred comfort over happening so we stayed back to enjoy the estates facilities instead.
We called for in house massages at the glass spa which allowed us to lie in beds facing the gorgeous ocean view. The bathtub to soak in was also in front of the glass facing this view. Chatting away in the jacuzzi with tea and fruits, time ebbed away quickly and soon it was time for all of us to retire to our respective villas.
The activity part of my holiday was about to start early tomorrow. I’ve had enough of the easy island life and needed to get around to appreciating the other things that Bali had to offer. More on that soon!
