WW: Batur Lake and Hulundanu Temple, Kintamani, Bali

Batur Lake and Hulundanu Temple, Kintamani, Bali


From my last visit to Bali in October 2021, I visited Batur Lake and Hulundanu Temple, located in Kintamani, Bangli, Bali. Together with some friends from Bali Local Guides, we chased the sunrise in Pinggan Village as you can read here : Enjoying Sunrise at Pinggan Village, Kintamani and then headed to Batur Lake, located not far from there. 

Lake Batur is indeed huge and this volcanic crates lake is indeed famous for amazing views we can enjoy while exploring the area.

From here, you can get access to Trunyan, the unique cemetery where Trunyan villagers laid down under the trunyan tree without being buried underground. The unique thing is the bodies can decay until it gets white bones without causing unpleasant smell. I will share more stories about this place.

Here are some of the photos I took there. Enjoy!

Love watching sunrise?

That makes the two of us then!

On my last trip to Bali, I managed to visit Kintamani, one of the mountainous and hilly parts of Bali, and spent a night there. We chased the sunrise at one of the famous spots in Kintamani called Pohon Cinta or the tree of love, located near Desa Pinggan or Pinggan Village. 

the view that morning


Here are some photos I took, together with some friends from Jakarta and Bali Local Guides. We took turn to take pictures one by one while enjoying the lovely sunrise and watching the village beautifully  engulfed by the mist.



I have to say I fell in love instantly and really hope I can go back here again. It is quite far from Nusa Dua, Bali, though. It took me around 4 hours drive to reach Kintamani. But for sure, it's worth it. And we woke up at 3.30, took the short drive to the spot, stopped for a while at the local mosque and continued the trip until we reached the place.





one misty morning

happy me :)

still misty morning indeed

Come Enjoy the Coffee and Be Weird!

When I saw that words right in front of Core Coffee Lab and Retail Bali, I knew I would get an enjoyable experience in this place. 

Just recently opened around a month ago, this place certainly has a lot to offer, particularly to those looking for real coffee and the perfect match for you.

I was privilege to meet Lou, the coffee master who is also the owner of this place and the winner of coffee competition she attended before. We really had a lovely chit - chat while discussing her wonderful coffee lab, the brewing process, the beans she acquired from different corners of the world and more. She certainly has a lot of tools, including Kalita, Chemex, 

The place is super cozy as well. Bright light place with nice bench and lovely toilets. We can also get some healthy food and grains here, plus super delicious kaastengel or cheese cookies and nastar or the pineapple cookies.

Il Bar at Bvlgari Resort Bali, Indonesia

almost missing the sunset at Bvlgari Resort, Pecatu, Bali


Hi there...

I am still exploring Bali and super duper excited to have the time to enjoy Bvlgari Resort Bali. 

It was awesome indeed. 

I have been spending so much time in meetings and for sure we all need a break for a while. We got some time to enjoy sunset in Pecatu, the famous cliff area in Bali and that amazing view is one of the reasons why Bvlgari, a world-wide famous jewellery brand, opened their resort here right after the one in Milan and some other lovely cities in the world. 

cheers from Bvlgari Resort, Uluwatu, Bali


I haven't got the chance to stay overnight here but this time, we really enjoy catching the sunset at Il Bar, Bvlgari famous bar.

Wanna see more about Bvlgari Resort, particularly the Il Bar

Check out the photos here and tell me what you think.

enjoying the sunset

Here we ordered some drinks and finger food while enjoying the sunset.

I had Bali Mary, a perfect and healthy combination of raspberries, chilies, and rosemary. Love it! we also had some margarita pizzas, mini combos, and fries.




I took the liberty to take some photos of the surrounding areas as well.

This place is amazingly built over the cliff area in Pecatu, Bali, so you can imagine the hilly parts and textures which make the resort unique and breathtakingly beautiful.

We took the bougie car to go down to the bar from the lobby.




Girls just wanna have fun..

Welcome to Il Bar






Well, that's a little story about the Il Bar at Bvlgari Resort in Pecatu, Bali.
Will you visit this place if you are around?

Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls and Friends

 Back to Bali and I am sooo thrilled!

I can never say no whenever a trip to Bali is on the table. This time, I stay for about 6 days for 4 different back - to - back meetings. I know that it's going to be tough, demanding and for sure tiring, but hey, Bali and its wonderful perks are just waiting around the corner! So here's to meetings, drafting, and enjoying the land of the Gods and Goddesses.

the beauty of Bali

We are lucky enough that most of the meetings finish at around 5 PM so that we have time to enjoy dinner in various places, especially those cute cafes and interesting places like spa and shops in Canggu and Seminyak. I have been visiting 5 so far during this trip, surely with health protocol being observed. I have Como Beach Club, Santorini, Bodyworks, Seminyak Village, Tepi Sungai and more. I can't wait to explore more. There is so much that Bali can offer and as everything is improving, the international passengers are be able to visit Bali again. I sincerely hope that this will bring all the benefits to the local people who have been suffering a lot from COVID - 19 since early 2020. Cheers to Bali and all of us as well.
