Good Morning Ubud!

If you want to save money from renting bikes/car around Ubud, then just opt for walking! Do bring sunglasses and a sun hat, depending on the weather. Although Feb is a rainy season, it can be sunny (scorching hot!) during day time. And yes, wear sarong to blend in :)


My journey around Ubud starts with the search of yoga pants. I walked straight to the west side and bumped to a few shops selling yoga stuff from books, clothes, accessories and even incense. Namaste (pic above) sells t-shirts, necklace and bangles to yoga books. I bought yoga pants in Yoga Shop (Balispirit.com) for US$19. Yikes! Not a place to go to get a cheap bargain.


Just a precaution, beware of dogs and cats in Bali since there has been a Rabies outbreak from the health autorities last Dec. Dogs are always stationed in front of restaurants or shops, which I think it functions to guard the territory.

Do not hesitate to ask the locals for direction. They are one friendly and helpful people. If you can speak bahasa Indonesia, it will be an advantage for you. Lucky me, Bahasa Indonesia is quite similar to Bahasa Malaysia.



Okay, I almost stepped on these flowery incense stuff a lot of times. It's everywhere on the road, in front of shops and restaurant. I'm guessing its for good luck. Anyone knows what is this exactly?


Ubud is famous for its paddy field


I wonder if the locals ever practise yoga in Bali cos most of the attendees of this yoga class are tourists. I once asked a taxi driver about Yoga in Bali, I don't think he knows what Yoga is...hmm. A tailor made activity for tourist? You decide.


There are quite a number of bungalows and lodging place in Ubud. One needs not to be worry about accomodation around here. There are a lot of them here!


Barack Obama = Kenshin Himura from Samurai X? Interesting :))

If I have the chance to go back to Bali, I would stay in Ubud for 2-3 days, enjoying the sights and the calm environment of this small town. I'd say one never visit Bali if they don't go to Ubud.
