Bali is a beautiful island , mystical and full of cultural crafts. The place is so mystical that when I landed in Denpasar , I fe The Balinese people are warm and full of tolerance. The place offers delicious food and seafood are fresh in Jimbaran ( beach ) and I enjoyed taking pictures of the island with my camera. Looking at Bali through the lens and the lens will never lie even under the hand of an amateur like me :) We were there for a few days before the Chinese New Year and had our reunion dinner in Bali :) the most exciting family holiday for us this year :)
Bali is a great place for me to learn using my new Nikon DSLR with my son and daughter to give me hand on lessons...hahaha needless to say I am the most happiest person on earth during our stay in Bali. I get hand on lessons on photography for free , delicious food and great bonding time with my family...what more could I ask . God is good all the time and He granted us safe journey to and back and gave us fine weather when we were there. Supposed to be rainy season during our stay but it was sunny all through...so hot in fact that I am darker and look Balinese myself :p
We want to come back to Bali again as we still have not cover Ubud and Lavina . We realised that if we want to see the whole of Bali we need at least ten days. We feel so relaxed for it is so safe to walk around even late in the night, unlike back home where you really fear for your life.
