Funny what a 5 day holiday in foreign soil can do to you. You come back rejuvenated and refresh and you wish you’ll go for a holiday again next week. But reality sinks in and your routine at home starts all over again until you await the next long break.
The last time we went to Bali was 2 years ago and I must say quite a number of things have change. New hotels have sprung up and new polish malls were beckoning. Even the airport were undergoing renovations. (we had to walk pretty far to our transfers with luggage and all)
We went with a huge group this time round. My family, my best friend Zahrin, my mum, sis and husband, his parents, my cousin Erwin and family and our good friends Ain and Din. Phew! As per our previous trips so far, Hard Rock Hotel has been our topmost preferred choice. As much as I want to stay at a private villa, Hard Rock was the first choice as my kids preferred the hotel rather than a villa citing boredom as the number 1 factor if we stayed in a villa which was true as for me villas are mostly for those who require privacy unlike mine who absolutely adore the kecohness.
It was our first time taking Qatar airways to Bali. We could not resist the cheap fare atop the best airline 2011/2012. I particularly wanted to know what the hype was all about. The plane was indeed top notch. Every mechanical gadget that it came with was a wow factor. Couldn’t say much about the service though. I guess nothing was comparable to our very own personal airline.
Our trip this time was more of a chillax kind of holiday. It was either the pool or the beach. No sight seeing at all except to Nusa Dua where we snorkeled and made a quick trip to turtle island.
After Nusa Dua we went to a wonderful place called DreamLand which I will write more in my next post. So wait for it. I leave you now with our memories
