Sightseeing Bali : Pura Tanah Lot & Pura Batu Bolong

For a first timer to step down in the Land of God, I have to include Tanah Lot in my itinerary. Remember I bought a day tour? Yup, this is one of the tourist attractions I dropped by.

Pura Tanah Lot is one the seven sea temples around the Balinese coast.

A stone throw away is another temple sitting on a cliff, better known as the Pura Batu Bolong,

Indeed it is quite a stunning view from any point where you are standing. The scenery is simply breathtaking as I stood there feeling the strong breeze blowing through my hair and face.

The rock underneath the temple formed a natural hole, hence the name (batu bolong literally means ‘rock with hole’).

The sound of the fiery waves was soothing to the ears.

Tanah Lot became a highly commercialized tourist spot, like I said you will never miss out this place especially if you are in a group tour.

Many local photographers standing by if you need to hire one.

Need a photo?

Nah....I got another tourist to capture one for the album..hehe

Walk along the market street.

Offering to the gods

Goodbye Tanah Lot...

Till we meet again.

Big Thumb Bakery Instant Kampua Noodles.

Big Thumb Bakery in Sibu is well known for their mochi and pastries but found out the bakery also retailing their own kampua noodles which I was eager to try out.

Gotten two packs for Instant Kampua Noodles (RM7 /pack).They have light soy sauce and dark soy sauce but I prefer the former one.

The good thing about Big Thumb instant kampua noodles is the oil they used. They do not use lard but onion oil which seems to be a healthy option and the oil can last longer compared to lard.

Cook the noodles until soft and toss with the light soy sauce, chili sauce and oil. Also added my home grown spring onions.

There was one time I got very satiated with instant kampua noodles because of the lard . But with onion oil is much better. It's delicious!

Mr Sun...Please shine down on me!

I got very tempted the moment I saw this sunflower (which has not bloom at that time)for sale at RM10. I was skeptical at first whether to adopt it but after got convincing by the promoter, I finally bought it home.Her advice was to put at a place where it gets shower with maximum sunshine.


After two weeks, it blooms beautifully. I noticed there are a few more buds waiting to open up too.

Happiness is......watching my plant starting to bloom.

Closer Kitchen & Espresso Bar @ Menara TSR, Mutiara Damansara

The weekend was quite busy being whole day out. The girls wanted to tag along with their dad to his work site but they can't enter the site for sure. So, I went along and chill at a cafe with the them, which happened to be a stone's throw away from the work site. Just nice for us to have a place to hang out.

A shot of macchiato  (RM9). Love the tiny cup and saucer.

For the girls - Cold chocolate (RM13).

While they requested something to fill the tummy, I got them 'Dirty Wings' (RM15) - deep fried drummets and wings and coated with sticky hot sauce. It was too spicy for the kids but definitely fine for me until the waiter told me I can opt for sweet sauce the next time. It will be more gentle for the kid's taste bud.

We have actually been here twice and the second time I have to go for the sweet sauce for them.

The outer layer is coated with the sticky sweet sauce and the meat inside is moist and juicy. Can't stop eating and at the same time licking the fingers.Haha

Big E loves carbonara and she was excited when I got her this - 'I Love Carbonara' (RM23) with smoked duck. I thought it was delicious except the spaghetti was slightly overcooked which did not have the al-dente texture else it will be perfect.

When I am dining at a cafe, I always look out for their cakes. The first time I was here, they only left with Red Velvet (RM13). I was given a big slice of cake topped with rich and creamy cream cheese frosting. The combination was perfectly executed from the texture to the topping. I almost finished the whole slice of cake by myself.

Looking amazed there...and nearly dig into it before I get to snap the pic.

Gula Melaka Banana Cake with Almond Brittles (RM13) is one of their signatures. I was glad to see it was available when I revisited. Probably, we were early too.

Oh to love the fresh slices of banana and cream cheese layered in between the soft and fluffy cake. The crunchy almond brittles are coated with sweet and rich gula melaka added mouth feel to the cake. Awesome stuff!

Someone's tooth almost fell out but still enjoying her meal. By the time she got home, the tiny tooth decided to call it a day and now is sitting inside her tooth fairy box. Haha
