Short Trip To Lombok Indonesia Part 2: Kuta Lombok Beach

Travel to Lombok and Bali, many of them offer car with driver for both one way trip or hourly rent. However I found that having driver to send me around make me feel bit uncomfortable (probably because in all my life I never have any driver except.. ahem, Marcella's Dad haha...
The rest I travel with taxi and buses.

So yeah, having driver who send and wait kinda awkward to me.

Looking at Lombok's road which tend to be quiet, we decide to rent scooter to move around.
It cost us USD 6/day.

It was feel weird having two giant and one giant baby on a tiny bike, but we get used to it. Not bad, in fact it was very fun...

We ride around South Lombok, toward Mawun Beach.
A very wavy and sunny beach, clean and stunning water.

Lombok Island has its bugging seller which is super annoying.
Leave me no privacy and it makes me constantly worry to my belonging.

Marcella enjoyed her expensive fried tempeh after swim.

Bye Lombok,

Short Trip To Lombok Indonesia Part 1: Villa Bau Nyale, Kuta

We found cheap ticket in Air Asia Free Seat sale.
We are immediately choose Lombok for our destination, just because we never been there.
And we never seen any cheap ticket to Lombok or Bali before.

So yeah, we count it as very lucky deal.

The flight from Kuala Lumpur to Lombok is about 3.5 hours,
and Lombok have similar time zone with Malaysia. 

We stayed at Villa Bau Nyale, in Kuta area. Its about 30 min drive from the Airport.
 Hotel is picking us up for IDR 150,000/way.
Our hotel cost us IDR 500,000/Night not include breakfast.

At the first time when we arrived, we are bit sad and disappointed because the hotel located deep inside of the kampung lot, far away behind and hidden between local houses instead of on the main road. 

However after one day of observe we are actually lucky. The Villa is not far behind, just 2 minutes walk to the main road. And it has very quiet and peaceful.

Marcella love the path, she like to walk up and down like catwalk :P
Our porch having fish pond which giving me too much trouble try to keep my kid away from the fish.
She will jump and dip herself, and play with the fish whenever she got chance.

in 5 second of blink, I found Marcella in the pond giggling.

The room is nice, just (for me) still not enough natural light.
There is a big glass door and private garden too, however the vegetation cover up almost all the natural light. So it still dark (next time I will ask them to chop everything off and replace it with just nice grass and small Frangipani :P heheh...

We love to spent our hot afternoon around swimming pool. 

I love the idea of outdoor toilet and shower. I give a very fresh air all the time.
There is no soggy, humid feeling in the bed room because someone have steaming hot shower.

However these extra experience of outdoor shower and toilet become more incredible when the rain comes. You feel like you are in different world.

Food in the Hotel is not bad at all, somehow I found that the food in Villa Bau Nyale taste and have better price compared to other eating place on Kuta Area.

However the chef/waitress always get my order wrong.
When I order noodle soup without spicy. no chili at all => they still put chili slices, so that Marcella can't have any of my food.

Fish Finger and Crispy Popiah was good RM 10/portion

Fried Rice was good, Fried Noodle was good, Soto Ayam was great,
I am more than happy had my breakfast, lunch and dinner in the hotel rather than messing around in Lombok area and get myself bad tummy :)

Will I stay here again: Yes, if they provide minibar and kettle, coffee/tea set.
Price: Very good value.

Another Stationary Arrived

I have some weird addiction to collect all of those cute stationary, especially related to paper.

Start from sticky note, journal, diary, planner. Its always give me some different happiness feeling. Looking at the new pages for me ready to write on, piles of colourful pen, highlighter, cute sticky note I can put on my fridge for reminder.

Ahhh.... I can stand for hours in MPH, Border or Popular in stationary area just to touch, feel, choose, smell the paper and finally bought couple pieces journal.

But I dont have to do it anymore, 
Cos I found online shop which sell all the product with similar offline price (other shop sells in triple times of price).

Ha ha..!
I don't have to make journey, taxiing, carry baby, choosing, and tidying (cos Marcella really like to make a mess in a book shop too) >.<


Total damage in my (husband) wallet: RM26.20 free delivery to my doorstep.

If you ADHD (which I will write more in other time), Have messy brain, disorganized or just simply stationary addict like me.. go visit shoppee apps and check eshopspree 

Unlike another shop which deliver the item from overseas (take about 30 days or more), this shop based in Malaysia. Delivery time is shorten to 1-2 days.. yaiy..!!! 

When other suggest buy incense, aroma oil, and meditation.  To start have and write journal is my better therapy ^_^.
