Jun 25, 2004 - Bali bound again, and joined by friends!
We were more than ready to get off the Island of Lombok and head back to Bali. In the end, we decided to catch a flight as to get back to Kuta to meet up with our friends Chris and Sheila that were flying in to meet us from Austin, it would have taken about 10 hours by boat-bus-boat-bus!

Lots of puzzled looks from the pilot & navigator. Then some...Jump to full entry
Jun 7, 2004 - Padangbai, Bali --- relaxation :)
The last few days here in Padangbai have been absolutely lovely! It is exactly what we were hoping it would be...relaxation. Aaahh!! Yesterday we did our first scuba dive.

It...Jump to full entry
Jun 4, 2004 - Off to Indonesia!
Greetings from Bali! We arrived here yesterday evening and slept for 12 hours straight! The flights here were good on Singapore Airlines...best service we've ever had by far.

But, no we had...Jump to full entry

Persembahan yang dilakukan adalah dalam bentuk pemujaan. Sekarang barulah kami tahu, kenapa kebudayaan di Bali sangat berjaya.Ini adalah kerana kebudayaan masyarakat Bali adalah amalan setiap hari, dan bukannya lakonan atau aktiviti perlancongan seperti masyarakat di negara lain. Jadi apa yang kita saksikan adalah amalan sebenar setiap hari. Fuyooo... !!! Tarian Barong :...Jump to full entry
