Baby in Bali (Part 2)

Day 3: We had a relaxing morning at the hotel. Julian enjoyed another session at the pool. Our tour began with lunch. We had babi guling - a popular local dish. After lunch we visited the Garuda Wishnu Kencana statue complex, which would be the biggest statue in the world when it is completed.

We then visited two temples: Uluwatu - the temple by the cliff, which had really awesome scenery, and Tanah Lot. In Tanah Lot, there's a temple on a rock by the sea and tourists gather to see the sunset. It's also the place to buy souvenirs. Dinner was bebek betutu, another local dish.

Day 4: On our final day, our guide picked us up for some final sightseeing and last minute shopping before lunch. Lunch was ayam bakar. Then we were off to the airport to catch our flight home. This time, Julian hardly slept on the flight (Bali-KL). However, he slept on the connecting flight back to Penang :-)

It was a good holiday, though rather short.

ahh... those familiar views... I remember seeing huge sign boards with the big big word BABI GULING. But I didn't try. Just the meat alone is fine but I don't really fancy 'spare parts' :p
