2004年四日三夜嘅印尼巴厘島之旅, 應該係我自畢業後最即興以及最多人一齊去嘅一個trip.. 記得當年亞航剛開業, 飛去印尼嘅機票從未如此平過, 所以朋友間一呼百應, 造就呢一次嘅旅程..
  • 天呀!! 當年嘅我, 好青春, 好瘦!! @#$%^&*
  • 換咗啲印尼盾之後, 即刻變成「百萬富翁」, 喺嗰邊買嘢都係千千聲, 感覺好富豪..
  • 我哋喺機場租咗兩架車(連司機每架一百萬盾), 帶我哋喺巴厘島游山玩水, 四日內去咗uluwatu, kintamani, nusa dua, kuta, tanah lot, goa gajah, ubud呢幾個地方..
  • 冇呀, 原來我哋冇去到bedugul, 小小遺憾啦.. 而且去海神廟時落大雨, 又唔夠時間去一嘗出名嘅烤豬飯, 有些少失望咁囉..
  • 由巴厘島返嚟短短幾日之後, 發生咗本世紀空前大悲劇, 十二月廿六日嘅南亞海嘯, 阿彌陀佛..

預告 ■ 2005 杜拜.. 請鎖定03.05.2013~~
the 4D3N trip to Bali in 2004 would be the most spontaneous and a trip i went with the most number of mates since i graduated.. i remember AirAsia just started business not long and flights to Indonesia had never been so cheap, that was why it created the excitement among us and hence the trip..
  • OMG i was so young and so slim back then!! @#$%^&*
  • i was instant "millionaire" after exchanging for some rupiah, and things are sold in thousands of rupiah there..
  • we hired two vans with drivers (1-million rupiah each at the airport) to bring us around.. uluwatu, kintamani, nusa dua, kuta, tanah lot, goa gajah and ubud were places we went..
  • nope, we didn't make it to bedugul.. also a little disappointed as it rained when we visited tanah lot, and didn't have time to have a taste of their famous roast pork rice..
  • just few days after this trip, the most devastating disaster of that decade happened.. the asian tsunami on boxing day, amitabha..

    1. Very nice photos.

      C - Didn't know Bali has a cliff so nice. Looks almost like in Europe.

      G - Enjoying tea like in Camerons at the tea plantation viewing deck..

      H - paddy fields - so green and soothing and very nice houses in the background.

      Delete
    2. I - High street so happening already at that time.

      J - Tanah lot temple island always reminds me of bonsai - a pretty and nicely-designed garden in a planting pot. No?

      L - haha.. You're quite a model there, wor! So "kau siu". Nice! Memories, eh?


      Delete
    3. M - Very nice Balinese gate. I feel part of the attraction of a place is its history - customs, architecture and so forth. Sadly, Malaysia does not see it and instead history is being destroyed as if people come here to see the twin towers alone! Aarghh!

  2. N - Is the tattoo for real? If so, why cicak? Interesting one to choose. Two, some more. ;)

    ReplyDelete

    1. Alright, last question. 6 pairs. The other cicak in the back row? :p

      Nice group photo. One for the album certainly.

      Ten years - time for a revisit?

      You were so lucky to have missed that incident. I too missed a disaster. I was supposed to be at Borobudur the week Mount Bromo erupted. Gosh, that certainly was close!

      Thanks for sharing these lovely photos. Memories are certainly made of these..

      Looking forward to your next trip. Dubai should be fun..

      Delete
    2. If not mistaken the cicak is a symbol of bringing good luck over there. Me too wondering is it real or temporary tattoo

      Delete
    3. Tattoo make a guy looks more macho. I don't mind if Jin Jin wants to tattoo my name on his trunk, oops! I mean his muscular arms la!

      Delete
    4. Meow, you are right! For Indon, cicak/lizard is sort of like a sacred thing/object. It brings good omen and protects the family.

      Meow should moves to Egypt. Cats are sacred animal there :p

      Delete
    5. Egypt ah ....errr...gua beh tahan the hot la...some more have to balut from top to toe....

  3. Indonesia Rupiah, lots of 000 behind, kaka....

    1. Wahhhhhh!!!!! So slim, so handsome. What happened? Hmmm...show off armpit hair! Muahahahahaha!!!!

      Delete
    2. STP, how you know SK has armpit hair? Many guys who do weight training in my gym don't have armpit hair one.

      Most of them are clean and clear down there.

    3. Hormone overdose? Or they shave?

  6. Good life to be able to travel starting from such young age....

    ReplyDelete
  7. Your gang had 12 fellas on Bali Hai holidays!!! That was sure fun and lots of laughters. I am sure the photos totaled over 10,000 shots by 12 people. I am always scared to travel in big groups after getting few minor headache experiences.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. when young easy to travel with big group la coz all easy going one. No kids no nothing...just bring bag and off can go already

      grow older then susah liao got kids .

      Delete
    2. Ah... I agree with meow. It's even harder with 2 kids! So many things to consider and the baggage is double/triple.

      Delete
  8. I like that place where you dined and looked at the volcano so close by at your nose! Any minute the volcano could explode and spewed hot lava while Thambee was still sipping his Luwak Coffee with scones!! Muahahahaha

    1. I didn't go to Gunung Kintamani. I went to somewhere else opposite that highest Gunung Agung which could be seen above the clouds from the aeroplane! Did you go there?

    2. yuck......kopi luwak....i hear also scared liao

  9. 我最難忘巴厘海神廟嘅日落同按摩,好靚!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I love that photo Thambee posed with the surf boards!! If you had surfed at Kuta Beach like Baywatch actors, I am sure Pamela Anderson would have jumped onto your board and sink it with her boobs! Wakakakaka

    1. LOL at TM's comment!!
      The photo of SK with the surf boards is cool, he has the beach-boy look!

  11. I remember there was a big cliff near Tanah Lot that has a big hole in between. Even helicopter could fly across dei. I could sit there for hours admiring the ocean while Letchumi did her Yoga poses there!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Good morning! Selamat pagi semua!!
    Wow, Bali! It's in my list of places-to-go leh!! But hubby is not keen in this place, he said it's boring =_=" (Don't ask me why he came out with this conclusion when he had never been there yet)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. But why now only you blogged about it? It's 9 years ago leh! You were still so young and slim and so 'ah boy' look!! xD

      Or may be you already blogged about it last time but now re-blog about it?

      Delete
    2. I personally think tanah lot and uluwatu have the best view ever!!
      And lots of my friends who went there also highly recommended the massage and spa treatment! The couple massage is also syok, both naked and can relax and enjoy great view at the same time! Haha xD

      Delete
    3. I see a few pretty ladies in the photo! Got anyone you like arr that time? Share with us la! ^_*

  22. SK, this Bali trip looks more interesting than Nepal trip. You were so slim that time. Arms were toned. Didn't know you have tattoo. It is a pair of lizards. Fulamak! I still dare not try tattoo on my body, but I tattoo my eye brows, eye lids and lips. Muahahaha~
