Good afternoon my beloved readers! Here is my first post of #MISSJASJASXTRAVEL into my blog. Honestly, it has been 5 years that I didn't go for travel. The last travel destination was Pulau Tioman with my hubby (that time we were boyfriend and girlfriend relationship). This post is also our 1st honeymoon trip after we were married for 2 years 6 months. Honestly, this is my 3rd oversea destination which I chose to go with my hubby is Bali, Indonesia. My 1st and 2nd oversea destination were China (Macau, Shenzhen, Hang Zhou, Guang Zhou, Su Zhou) and Hong Kong (Disneyland). That time I was 16 years old and I went with my family and relatives too. Furthermore, I don't like to take photos and selfies as well. Seriously! All the photos when I was in China and Hong Kong taken by my elder sister. Now, I am adult and I started to love travel and I wish to travel around the world like above the picture. My dream country that I want to travel is United Kingdom. I told myself that I want to visit it before I am 30 years old.

Before I start my topic, first of all, we need write our packing list. Everyone has different types of packaging list. Like me, I am a person that I used to pack before 2 weeks of my travel date.

Usually, I will pack for my hubby as well because he said that he don't know how to pack.

These packing list are always important to me. I am very sorry that I didn't take any luggage/passport picture. I am too excited until I forgotten to take. Hahaha. Anyway, here I am gonna start with :
My hubby booked our flight tickets through online in Airasia.com. If you book through online, remember to print this travel itinerary so that you can easily self-check-in into Airasia machine. It is very important to make sure your passport valid, print your travel itinerary, bring your IC with you (in case something happen), your hometown cash, oversea cash (where you travel to), credit card (in case your oversea cash not enough).
It was my first time that I came to this KLIA2 and it was huge airport as I seen. Anyway, my hubby and I came down to KL on 10th June 2017 morning. After we touched down to KL, we went to IKEA Cheras for our future house things and decorations too. We walked at IKEA Cheras and MyTown shopping mall from 2.30pm until 9.30pm only we reached my brother's house. On the 11th June 2017, we went out with my brother, sister-in-law, my niece Jennabelle to Sunway Pyramid and met up with my sister and my niece Hazel for lunch and shopping too. We were quite tired on these 2 days but then so excited to go Bali, Indonesia. On 12th June 2017 morning, we took Grabcar from my brother's house to KLIA2 airport. Even though our flight ticket time is 3.35pm but then it is better that we reached earlier than late. We arrived airport from my brother's house at 11am. It is kinda far of my brother's house. We walked around there and my Mr.Yew taught me a lot of things about flight details, how to check-in and so on. Hahahaha. *please forgive me because it is my first time*
This is the details that my hubby taught me *hahaha*
Our breakfast @ Texas Chicken KLIA2 - RM 17
Finally, I am on the airplane before flying up to the sky. Isn't cute the LINE airplane? Hehe. When I was 16 years old, I was in pain. My both ears was so uncomfortable. I was so so scared to the max!! I keep eating my sweet until this plane fly up to the sky.
Well, it was nothing happened on me! Our flight ticket time is 1535(3.35pm) and we suppose to arrive at 1840(6.40pm). We arrive around 7.30pm due to the weather if I am not mistaken. We arrived Ngurah Rai Internation Airport and we met up with the tour guide that I contact him last 2 months ago. His name is Mr.Arjun. He waited for us at the airport and then we walked to his car. Before he dropping us to the hotel that we booked from Agoda, we were very hungry. He fetched us go to Warung Ayam Tulang Lunak for dinner.
Here is our dinner and drink @ Warung Ayam Tulang Lunak
IDR 175,950 = MYR 57.50
I know it was expensive but then that time we were too hungry already, so we decided to order. We only ordered Sup Surigami (the fish name) and 2 plates of rice and siroup drink. My rate goes to the dish and drink is 3/5.
After our dinner, Mr.Arjun dropped us at Anggie Boutique Villa which we booked at Agoda. We stay at this villa for 2 nights from 12th June 2017 - 14th June 2017. From the Warung Ayam Tulang Lunak to Anggie Boutique Villa, it was so so far. It takes us 2 hours to reach our hotel.
Overall, outside view of the villa was not bad. The room that we stayed was okay. The only thing that we dislike is the bathroom because it was dirty. My hubby kept complaining about it to me. Hahaha. Anyway, my rate goes to this villa is 2/5 because the bathroom was dirty and yet the villa was too far from anywhere you want to visit such as Holy Spring Water Temple and others.

My hubby and I woke up at 7.30am as we need to get ready before 9am as our tour guide Mr.Arjun arranged his younger brother come and fetch us at 9am due he was sick as he mentioned. I was dressed up into my bikini and wore my hubby's exercise outfit. I wanted to dress up into my bikini and just get into the car. My hubby nags me and say cannot and etc. So, I wore his exercise outfit. By 8.30am, Mr.Arjun's younger brother arrived. His name is Mr.Panji. That time we were very hungry, so he brought us go for breakfast. He brought us to Warung Nasi Ayam. Here are the pictures :
Breakfast @ Warung Nasi Ayam
IDR 78,000 = MYR 26 for 2 person
This dish is quite special for me. Luckily, it was delicious and I can eat. Well, I am a person very very very very choosy food one. This and that I can't eat and don't eat one. It was delicious breakfast but then it was expensive breakfast ever. The shop was old and full of mosquitoes. My hubby and I was so shocked about the price. Anyway, my rate goes to this dish is 3/5.
After breakfast, we went to the dolphins attraction. It was my hubby's favourite destination that he wants to go in Bali. We were so excited about it. Mr.Panji brought us go to the dolphins attraction which is somewhere at Nusa Dua. Yet, it was closed and some more it was closed 3 months ago. After that, my hubby showed him the flyer that we took it from the airport on Day 1. From the flyer, he called and asked how to go to the destination. From this point of view, my hubby was very angry about it. Anyway, about this, I will write on below. You guys will know soon.
Finally, we arrived at the destination called Dolphin Lodge. We arrived approximately at 10.30am and we took speed boat to the ocean pool which is dolphins place. Here are the pictures and videos :

Before going into the ocean pool, I took video of one of the dolphins first. I was so excited after arriving the ocean pool of dolphins. There are sharks and stingray on the another side of the ocean pool. There are 3 types of attraction you can do are swimming and interaction with dolphins (you can touch it, play with it, swim with it) OR watching dolphins (without touching it). That time it were raining as you can watch the video. Luckily, we still can get to swim and interact with the dolphins. There are total 3 trainers with their dolphins with us! ONLY US! No one else! VVIP right? Hahaha.
The trainer asked his dolphin to kiss me. Hahaha. I was so happy yet funny. Please ignore my voice at this video, hahaha. I am gonna missed this moment so much. Oh well, it is still raining and yet the water was so so cold!

We are allowed to hold the dolphin fins and swim together and go! Hahaha. I was afraid to hold its' fins because I scared that I will hurt the dolphin. After tried twice, finally I can get to hold in and it swim and go! The trainer will ask you to let go of the fins, so you need to let go already.

We called the dolphin by tapping our hand on the water and the dolphin swim beside us and turn around together. It was so smart right? I really missed it so much!
There are several videos and I am not gonna upload due to my funny voice. Hahaha. Anyway, once the time finish, the dolphins will jump for us to watch and take video too. After that, they will flip their tail to say byebye to us. Awww!! How sweet of them!! I really missed all the memories here.

Aside from its beautiful beaches and sunset views, Bali is also known for its coffee. Actually Indonesia is one of the world's top coffee producers and Bali, in particular, is known for a certain type of coffee called kopi luwak. It's actually the most expensive coffee.
This is Bali Coffee Bean
This is how they produced Kopi Luwak or they are also known as civet coffee is produced by this tiny furry creature called the civet cat. They're fed coffee cherries and the coffee beans actually comes out when they poop. I know it sounds gross but people believe that the enzymes produced by the civet cat and the fermentation that happens inside is body brings more flavor and improves the quality of the coffee. So after they excretes it out, the farmers will then clean it, roast and grind it before brewing the coffee.
This is the male civet cat
This is the female civet cat. They're separated for temporary. It is because the female civet cat was pregnant now. As you can see that it is fat right? But it is not. It is pregnant now.

Tirta Empul is an important temple complex and holy mountain spring, located in the village of Manukaya in central Bali. The site serves as a legendary setting of a traditional tale about good versus evil. It is also a national cultural heritage site.
The complex, built circa 960 AD, is also a silent witness to the old Balinese kingdom years, particularly at the time of the Warmadewa Dynasty. Another nearby and prominent site on top of a hill is the presidential palace, Istana Tampaksiring, built during the years of the nation’s first president, Soekarno.
Tirta Empul, meaning ‘holy water spring’ is actually the name of a water source located within the temple. The spring feeds various purification baths, pools and fish ponds surrounding the outer perimeter, which all flow to the Tukad Pakerisan River. Various sites throughout the region and many other archaeological relics relate to local myths and legends.
You need to buy your entrance ticket to go into the temple. Let's me tell you that all the Bali temples, you need to buy your entrance ticket to go into the temple.
Adult Ticket - IDR 15,000 per person = MYR 5 per person
Child Ticket - IDR 7,500 per person = MYR 2.50 per person
Remember to read their rules and regulations here

From here, you can see a lot of their gods and

The last walkway to go into Holy Spring Water Temple
Lastly, you can see a lot of people waiting to go down or line up to get the Holy Spring Water. It is quite waste that my hubby and I didn't go and bathe with the Holy Spring Water due to we don't know where to get the "sarong" from whom. Some people get to go down. Some people don't get to go down. I really don't know. This so-called "tour guide" said inside the temple people will give the "sarong" and then we can bathe with the Holy Spring Water. After that, we walk until we arrived the a very big fish pond. You can see all these beautiful fishes swim and eat the foods too. Then, you walk until you saw a lot of stalls selling magnets, rattan accessories and others. I wanted to buy the rattan bag but then my hubby don't allow and yet we left not much IDR cash too.

My advices to my beloved friends and readers
who planning to come Bali :)
After we visited Holy Spring Water Temple, we told our so called "tour guide" (he's actually transport driver) to drop us back to our Anggie Boutique Villa. After he dropped us back to the villa, we took our nice bath and rest for a while after whole day. By the time, we arrived our villa at 8.30pm already. After that, we were very hungry. So, my hubby searched around 'where got mini market?' Finally, he found the nearest mini market too. We walked to the main road and there are several mini market. Then, I ordered the "Hotdog" only (this is my dinner). After that, my hubby has to use his credit card to take out money from the ATM already. You must be wondering that my hubby exchange our MYR to IDR is how much in advance? I will share with you at the end of the Day 5.
Stay tuned for my next blog post
