My weekend in Bali

I spent my last weekend in Bali with the boyfriend and his business associates. We stayed in Hard Rock Hotel. The trip was AWESOME although it took us 1 hour to get through the immigration and I felt a little shortchanged from the seafood dinner we had provided by the tour in Jimbaran and there was some glitch when we checked in at Hard Rock Hotel! Bugger told us no more rooms when we paid for it way earlier and it's Premium Deluxe room ok! Not some standard room. Idiot. They wanted to "so-called" upgrade us to a luxury suite that comes in 2 rooms and a living room and they expected the 6 of us to share 1 suite?! No way! Crazy, did they expect some of us to sleep in the living room? LOL! Anyway, we ended up getting a room as originally planned but we had to check out the next day and then check-in to another room. Weird.

Apart from that, the trip - the only regret is...I didn't get to do my surfing because I couldn't wake up for it. We booked the 8am class. Set our alarm at 6am and when the alarm rang, I just didn't feel like waking up and I gave myself a whole lot of excuses like "I surfed in Bali before and I can miss this one", "since we haven't pay, we can miss this", "the boyfriend can't swim so it's dangerous", etc. I felt a pang of guilt when Lisa called at 8:30am asking where were we because I was the one who persuaded and pushed her to join us for the surfing the night before. When we joined her at the pool, she told us that she did go for the surfing and that she had a great time. I know that she definitely will have a good time like I did before. So jealous. Haha! Anyway, she did tell me that she really wanted to try surfing but never had the chance to do it. Now she did and thanks to me for pushing her to do it. LOL. Trying to make myself feel better here.

The highlight of the trip so far is...the boyfriend and I rented a motorcycle and we biked around from Kuta to Seminyak. We stopped by some shops along the way to shop a little. It was really fun! I never rode a bike before and I was a little scared. However, I trust the boyfriend because he can ride a motorcycle like his mode of transport. So basically, he is very experienced. Fun! Fun! Fun!

Oh one more thing. I'm not sure if it's only Hard Rock Hotel or for all the hotels along Kuta beach, the tap water is actually salty. Hmmmmm... I don't remember salty tap water from the hotel I stayed last year. Strange.


The boyfriend made a video. You can view it from his blog here, or below.
