So, after Singapore, we flew to Bali and stayed in a place called Sanur...
The Island - as shown on the airport mural
At the beach
The beach was kinda weird. Tides are rather high and it took us two days before we realised that we had to catch the high tide in order to have a proper swim. Part of the problem is that the 100-200m of the sea from the coast is actually some coral reef, so it's shallow and full of grass (and fish, apparently!)
Kites - some really good designs, really big (2-3m in length)
Although Indonesia is by far a Muslim country, Bali is dominantly Hindu. Every (and I do mean EVERY) house, small shop, supermarket, restaurant has small shrine in front of it, and they give offerings up to three times a day.
The Food was phenomenal - chicken, fish, pork, you name it!
Balinese black rice pudding and Balinese pancakes filled with fresh grated coconut
Jack fruit (at the trip).
At the hotel
Of about ten days that we were there, we took one day to explore the island. Folks at the hotel have organized us with a driver/guide and we decided to check the Mother Temple - the biggest temple on the island, as well as some other stuff...

Big spiders (as big as my hand!)
Rice fields. Above is a volcano, but it was covered in clouds when we were there.
Luwak cat - it swallows coffee beans, which are later collected from the feces and processed like a normal coffee.
Get it out of my ear!
The Coffee from the feces
