Day 13 (Bali): Seawalking, Monkeys and Sunset Dinner

Breakfast: Veggie & Cheese omelette, banana pancakes (the cooked banana imparts a very rich, concentrated flavour), fried potatoes and papaya juice.

Going Seawalking!

I was nervous at first, just taking the boat out there, but that quickly changed into immense excitement.

Dad’s showing the signal for “okay”, since thumbs up means you want to head to the surface. Winky and I are just being Asian.

It was pretty hard to see where you were going, since the glass was super thick and angular.

IMG_5735_exposure

We were 4m below the surface.

Dad got photobombed by the fish.

I did the noob thing of letting go of all my bread in the span of 10 seconds, not realising that you’re suoposed to hold on to it and slowly attract fish over the span of 20 minutes…

It cost USD50 to buy photos and videos of our underwater adventure. Worth it.

Banana boat!

I got super sore arms from holding on too tight.

Racing off the hot sand.

Ma and Ba went to Turtle Island.

_MG_0717

While we…

_MG_0723

…relaxed in the cool water.

Hunger time. at Garden Resto, Dewi Sri.

Putu, our tourguide, was amused that we were all addicted to technology. (So was he.)

_MG_0752

For me, Aqua will always be synonymous with “I’m a Barbie Girl!”.

_MG_0750

Vegetarian Mi Goreng (literal translation, noodles fried), as only the Indonesians know how. This was a tad too salty however.

_MG_0754

Putu’s Spicy Chicken. It was way too spicy for him.

_MG_0760

Gado gado, a cooked salad with hard boiled eggs, tofu, whatever veggies you want and a satay-based sauce.

_MG_0771

Fried Dong Fun (glass noodles).

_MG_0775

Doggie! This one looked more vicious than the others though.

_MG_0787

Trekking to the temple and the sea. Much sweat was involved.

_MG_0804

My mudda: ultimate poser.

_MG_0823

Winky is hilariously afraid of heights.

_MG_0831

Ba smiles even less than Ma does.

_MG_0846

Sorry Ma, your face was just too good. Also this is what I meant by, “You look like you’re in pain, please smile.”

_MG_0876

Winky was relieved to get off the cliff.

_MG_0861

Monkeys on our way back down. The one in front grabbed my bag.

_MG_0906

Felt a bit dirty taking this one.

_MG_0921

Hehe.

_MG_0930

Meet Kevin. He randomly came up and started talking to us. As we left, I said, “Hey Kevin!” and started snapping pictures.

_MG_0938

Kevin said, “I can do this!”

_MG_0942

“Ugh!”

_MG_0943

“Yah!”

_MG_0944

Putu kept snakeskin fruit in his van as a snack. We tried it. We did not like it. It is super pungent.

_MG_0948

Sunset Dinner.

_MG_0965

The crunchiest, tastiest peanuts I’ve ever had.

_MG_0999

My Bali Ice  Tea.

_MG_0992

Winky and her pineapple juice.

_MG_0993

Ma’s Young Coconut.

_MG_0995

Beach Corn Vendor.

_MG_1012

Fresh, seasoned, juicy corn.

_MG_1014

Smokin’.

_MG_1024

Why’d you have to be wearing a yellow shirt?

_MG_1035

The eponymous sunset.

_MG_1002

It looked like it was going to rain, so we moved indoors.

_MG_1044

Fries, milady?

_MG_1065

Chilli Lobster and Muscles.

_MG_1063

Cap Choy (translation, mixed vegetables). This may not look like much, but it was delicious, packed with garlicky goodness.

_MG_1058

Nomming by candlelight.

_MG_1076

Soft, luscious, garlicky Kang Kong.

_MG_1067

It’s the blurriest one, but the garlic paste (made with oil and salt) was seriously addictive. We polished off four more plates of that stuff. The chilli paste wasn’t too bad either.

_MG_1077

Chilli Sotong (cuttlefish).

_MG_1068

Grilled fish and prawns.

_MG_1072

Goodnight, everyone.
