"Remember to Remember"

Bali, Indonesia Day 1: Jimbaran Seafood Dinner & Kuta Town

I remembered well when Citygal texted me from Malaysia while we were still in Glasgow.

Air Asia zero fair!
Without second thought, the answer "yes" just voiced out automatically.
Here we were, in Bali with no regrets and this was an unforgettable trip with KampungboyCitygal.

#1 Air Asia cheap return flights that cost us only RM80 per person (includes check-in luggage)

#2 Camwhoring started on board

Day 1 
(22.04



#3 Jimbaran Bay
Needs no introduction, we're pretty sure most, i meant all visitors who went holiday-ing in Bali would pay a visit to the Jimbaran Bay with one sole purpose; the seafood with sunset view. And the end result would be complaints of pathetically expensive seafood price.

Well, this would depend on which cafe/ restaurant you select, and of course be sure to convert well too :)

#4 Feasting on Lia Cafe's grilled seafood @ Jimbaran
We went for their "Paket Menu" (which means package/ set). This wouldn't put a hole to our pocket!

Paket A (IDR 180,000/ RM64) - portion for 2 pax
With 7 pcs of prawns, 6 pcs of clams, 0.5kg fish, 0.5mg squids, their different types of sauces, coconut juice, salad, rice, vegetables & fruits.

Paket C (IDR 290,000/ RM103) - portion for 2 pax
With 0.5kg lobsters, 0.5kg crabs, 7 pcs of prawns, 6 pcs of clams, their different types of sauces, Bintang beers, salad, rice, vegetables & fruits.

Day 1

Included in the "paket". Their roasted peanut was yummy! Great combination with the beer.

It's a must to try Bintang Beer in Indonesia.

Our huge coconut included in the set.

Phone : 081 – 2390 7411
Business hours: 9am – 12am


Note: Their lobster and crabs were rather tiny. But overall, it was a filling & tasty dinner. We were seated by the seaside, entertained by the melody of the waves, overlooked by the moon & stars. Romantic? But it would be perfect if we were in time for sunset.
There was a live acoustic band hogging around the tables, humming songs that'll churn up a better atmosphere. But remember that you gotta tip them!

#5 Corn is our new favourite snack in Bali!
Barbecued Corn-on-cob for IDR 10000/RM3.65 sold by the beach.
It tasted different. Sweet, with hinting out some saltiness as well. Great stuff to try.

#6 First night stay at Tune Hotel
Checked into our hotel after dinner that we got for IDR 285000/RM 85; inclusive of 12 hours air conditioning, excluding toiletries & towels.
It's recommended for budget travelers which we thought it's cheap and convenient as its location is strategic. A few minutes walk to Kuta Beach and located within the main shopping & dining area of Jalan Pantai Kuta. Our rooms were clean too.

#7 Hang around Kuta Town
We took a stroll along Jalan Legian, Kuta, visiting the happening streets (which we don't find it so happening after all as most shops have already closed during our night loitering)

This ends our simple first day itinerary as we reached Kuta late.
More to come!

Nice one~~ waiting for more posts from u :)

Actually the lobster at Lia's looked more like a crayfish than anything else. But for that price, I sure ain't complaining! :)
I missed sunset at Jimbaran though, went to Uluwatu instead.

Selba May 5, 2010 at 10:00 AM  

The tune hotel looks nice :) Maybe next time, I should give a try.

I love Bali, and I can't believe how cheap the tickets were! More and more airlines are offering cheap tickets, which is good because it means more people can travel. Loved the look of the seafood too - I miss the food in Bali (and so cheap too!)

Carrie May 6, 2010 at 1:32 PM  

i love jimbaran.... miss their sunset & seafood!

Tune hotel looks good! Cheap & nice!

Barramundi wholesalers May 6, 2010 at 3:05 PM  

Seafood is good for you because it is low in fat and high in protein. Most fish contain oils that are called omega-3. These oils can help prevent some diseases and treat certain types of illness. The eel is one type of seafood that contains a high fat content, but only a very few types of seafood contain fat.

Eat healthy, eat fresh seafood Prepared to perfection, fresh seafood can make you want to be on a seafood diet for ever. Seafood is more healthy for you than eating red or white meats that contain lots of fats.
