What an amazing birthday weekend! Big thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate with me, and an extra huge thank you to Hu’u Villas who hosted my birthday party 🙂 Getting older is not so bad after all!
If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I love to go exploring in the weekends. This weekend, we headed down to the Bukit, the South part of Bali. We had heard rumours of another secret beach, and we had to go try to find it. And we did! It was a cool little beach, hidden in a cove. The tide was too high when we were there, so it wasn’t really good a place to hangout, but we’ll definitely come back some…Continue Reading “More Secret Beaches and a Stay at Le Meridien, Jimbaran”
Unfortunately, Bali is getting more and more crowded, as the influx of tourists keep increasing every year. The beaches in Kuta, Seminyak and Canggu are way overcrowded (not to mention dirty), so we usually don’t hangout there too much. The beaches in the south part of Bali, however, are still pretty amazing. Most of them are also getting pretty crowded, but if you go off the beaten track, there are still hidden gems to be found. This weekend, we headed down to Nusa Dua to stay…Continue Reading “Secret Beach in Nusa Dua, Bali”
First of all, Happy New Year! I had a lot of New Year’s resolutions this year, as always, but already there seems to be just one I’ll stick to. And that is to start a YouTube channel. Not just that, but I challenge myself to put out 15 videos in 30 days. The reason I’m doing this is that I feel the continuous forced creativity will be amazing training. Second, it will also force me to go out an do cool stuff (let’s face it, no one…Continue Reading “Stepping Out of my Comfort Zone – Starting a YouTube Channel”
Even after all these years in Asia, I have never gone diving before (I know, it’s weird). People have been telling me “how amazing it is”, but I just never saw the potential in it. However, when a bunch of my friends wanted to head over to Nusa Lembongan to dive for Manta Rays, I figured it was my time to try this out. Had the most EPIC dive with a big school of manta rays outside Nusa Penida today! Those of u who dive…Continue Reading “Diving With Manta Rays in Nusa Lembongan”
Damn, Halloween has to be one of my favourite nights of the year. There’s something about partying in a costume, disguised as someone else, that makes everyone go extra bonkers. This year, for our Halloween in Bali, Jen and I decided to dress up like Indonesian elementary school students, and for the first time ever, we started the preparations early. For some reason, they don’t make the elementary school uniforms in sizes suitable for people like me, so we had them made. Short and shirt for…Continue Reading “Halloween got out of Hand”
I’m just going to jump right into it and say that riding dirt bikes through the amazing landscape of Bali is one of the coolest things I’ve ever experienced. Such a massive bucket-list tick-off! A friend of mine had gone on a dirt bike tour a few months earlier, and couldn’t stop talking about it, so I knew I had to check it out. I brought my friends Alyona and Logan, and we called up our friend Ari at Bali Dirt Bikes to see what it was…Continue Reading “Badass Dirt Bikes Off The Beaten Track in Bali”
