The Villa (Bali)

Initially the villa was recommended by our tour agent. It was between villa Alia or villa Gembira.

We specifically requested for the accomodation to not be in Kuta as we heard its noisy..horrible traffic and busy. So seminyak it is.

Base on the pricing, we opted for Villa Gembira. It is actually a 4 bedroom villa with one huge common area (kitchen dining and tv area) and a huge pool.

Their service is actually very satisfying to me as each villa is assigned with a butler and his assistant whenever he needs.

Butler services inclusive of preparing us indoor breakfast, cleaning the dishes after breakfast and later their room service will clean the room on daily basis.

I’ll give it a 4 star out of 5 bcoz..of its beautiful villa… well secluded and secured. The rooms are comfortable with each open roof area. Err yang tu in my view menakutkanlaaa..at night I had to wake my hubby to teman me to toilet. Hahahahahahaha…..ada one night tu one loud noise on the roof. Fuh being a very light sleeper of course akak cuak..kehkeh..perasaan.

I have nothing to complain i guess except for these:
1. Its not located near a beach at all! Well according to them you can walk about 12 mins la..but for me tgh not well and with org tua lagi manalaa larat kan.
2. No buggy service to send and pick us up. Just discovered at the end of the trip rupanya our agent la bertungkus lumus usahakan ada van amik depan villa kuar villa.
3. Mosquitos wise…banyak but they do prepare the ubat nyamuk..and net. We were ok as we’ve done our research earlier. Bawak insect sticker..siap2.
4. Halal food utensils…uwaa they are not muslim friendly. We had to samak all the kitchen utensils b4 the butler can use to cook our food. Its a normal thing la kalau travel overseas but I guess if you can find a muslim friendly villa better lah. Kalau tak samakla macam kami bawak sabun samak moden tu. Hehee..jenuh waaa..
5. Food Halal – they do have halal beef and chicken patties. So ask for it k. We all siap mintak nak tgk halal logo.

The star of this Villa is of course the pool! My kids swim all they can! Oh yes another thing I love about this villa is that it is all one level. No stairs! Good for orang tua. 10 mins walk from Villa also is the town and supermarket bintang.

Would I recommend this Villa to others? Definitely if they don’t mind with all the comment given. Check it out ok. It is quite actually an awesome villa!

Bali (day 4)

Its our last day today at Bali! After the kids had enjoy their morning swim (puas2) and had their breakfast by the pool I started to pack our bags.

Nothing much done that morning as we let my mil and sils enjoy their spa time. Oh I did pedi medi and again it was a waste of my Rp200,000 they don’t have any buffing service which was a total let down.. that I bargained to reduce the price from 250k to 200k rp. Haih..really not my lucklah this trip 😬

Last stop was for lunch and then we went straight to the airport. This is where we will go on our seperate ways..

Food was ok. Famous tempat ni. Halal

The rest with MAS and us AA. Surprisingly AA was not sooo bad..the check in process was very fast and as adviced by my mom we pay for the disable wheel chair facility upon arrival at LCCT.

The difference was however the distance of the gate number. Gila jauh…had to walk and walk and walk…patutla the AA offered me to take the wheel chair!! Ciss.😂

It is a lower grade flight so there was a bus that send us right to the AA stairs to plane. The kids were enjoying the new experience. Alhamdulillah flight home was a peace of mind. Aqib slept all throughout the journey so I can relax and rest too. Their meals was surprisingly delicious too! The aircond was cold and we were all happy customer with AA that day.

Upon arrival at KLIA 2..the staff push from the door plane right to bagage claim area. Fuhh mujur amik wheel chair with my unwell condition at that time mmg sgt berguna.

So there we are. Finnito.

Overall Bali is a nice beach holiday island. Its just not my luck kot coz when you are unwell everything seems to be tak ok. Perhaps lets give it another go next time when I’m well and fit..and I would definitely want to bring the kids to the famous Safari Zoo. Besides that I still prefer Jakarta Bandung Australia. 😂😂 jangan marah ya..like I told you I am not the beach kindda girl.

Why?..I just have this phobia with strong winds. Beaches means angin kuat too me..which reminded me of angin sangkala on a kiamat day. Yes I can be that paranoid since my eldest brother told me and showed me a video…grrr…

So i have my reasons why…

The End

Bali (day 3)

The next day, I woke up with a bad pain and I just couldn’t afford to let it be more painful. Mr hubby agreed for us to stay indoor for the day while the rest supposed to go to ubud.

I tried to swim as well, konon to let the water ease the pain. But err hehe not really aa. Booked for indoor massage and it wasn’t as great as I thought it would be. Okla..for a pregnant mom they cannot massage kuat2 kan and was quite disturbed about the fact the masseuse didn’t properly clean the lulur balance from our bedroom floor. Being me I don’t like laa unprofessional service like that but the girl was nice.

I blame it on my very high balinese massage holiday expectation!! 😄😂

So the kids hang around the villa and for lunch we reheat some food. Honestly it was really hot that noon in the villa. I just stay indoor in our room. Couldn’t bare the sticky hot weather.

We were suppose to join them for dinner at Jimbaran later of the day but they had a few detour so ended up tak sempat for us to catch the sundown moment by the beach. Feeling very bersalah whoa to the rest of the family (ampun)…we were soo ready to take the taxi actually but was told a few other arrangements and last2 tak jadi.

Traffic on a Friday in Bali is also very bad ok. 😅 we got stuck.

Mmg takde rezeki juga but alhamdulillah there is some sunlight when we arrived at Jimbaran. Beautiful beach! Jagung dia rasa pelik sikit but sedap.

I just try my best to ilangkan rasa was2 coz knowing myself sampai ke tahap brush apa depa guna nak sapu butter tu my mind will..go into details..butter dia ada lemak babi ke tak. Lagi2lah kat bali bila babi is a normal thing kan. I think I did ask or did my research earlier. So i put my faith berdasarkan review traveller muslim yg lain. InsyaAllah.

So here are the picas. Lovely beach..we loved it. Food dia mujur ada satu kicap tu if not me cannot telan…oh and the kangkung rebus is my fav. Hehe.

Then on our way back we ask the supir to stop by at MCD to buy some supper. Baru tau all fast food chain in halal tau. Haha kalau tau dr awal surely we have bought some supper very night. 😅

Finally…we then went home.. eat supper and rest!

Bali (day 2)

The next day we woke up as early as 5.30am as the sun was almost up already. By the time subuh finishes around 6ish am the kids woke up and terus wanna jump into the pool. Waaa pagi2 also wanna swim ka 😅😅 so at 6.45am they were already in the pool while waiting for the butler to come and cook our breakfast at 8am.

image

Aqib woke up a bit later and straight he went peeking at through the glass door..

image

image

image

image

The butler preparing our breakfast. 1st day was a bit confused. We thought they don’t have halal beef patties. So we stick to eggs and roti je sungguh tak best.

image

image

2nd day baru managed to sort it out and finally we have some meat in our english breakfast.

After breakfast we went to the Turtle Island via a small boat. The kids loved emm very much. Me sakit sangat pinggang after the trip. Beautiful…gorgeous! Just look at the blue ocean. Hey its not that hotlaa…pasal i dah expect the worst kot 😂😂😄😄

Then on our way back the van stop by at a few placess b4 we head home to the villa. Souveniers shop.

image

image

image

image

At Agong..Aqib was running here and there under mr hubby supervision. I noticed the tshirts sold here were really nice and good quality. But bcoz I was targetting to go to Krishna base on my spa owner friend..so I tried my best to limit my purchases here. Bought me, Aqib and Wawa a Bali tshirt. Some colorful selipar and keychains.

After Agung, finally we arrived at Krishna. This time I let mr hubby go first while the kids stay in the mpv. So that he can grab everyone each sourveniers. Menyesal tak beli banyak2 at Agong..here at Krishna their tshirts not very nice but there were a lot of spa stuff here..so I just grabbed some lulur, lotion, oil as gifts to my family. Sticking to core family members only.

Lastly we just dcd to stop by at Kuta beach while the rest went to Hard Rock Bali and some went to buy gifts by the beach. We all decided to just sit and enjoy the beach. But pftttt 😤😤 ramai gile org soh amik service dia until mr hubby was very worried to leave us there. Took a feet massage for 80k rp.

image

image

Lastly we went for dinner at xxx err macam takda je..so malam tu we rest and eat maggi and whatever we have at the villa.

Gosh masa malam tu my pinggang hurt very much already. Barely can move. I didn’t even come out from the room and rest.

Walla finnito day 2

Bali Trip (1st day)

I am not…soo into Island Holiday kinda girl; but that doesn’t mean I don’t go at all. My childhood memories are full of our frequent trips to Pangkor Island, Langkawi Island and the rest was beach holidays at Port Dickson, Pantai Cahaya Bulan at Kelantan and of course the Terengganu beaches.

Mr hubby wanted to treat his mom and dad for a holiday. Initial it has always been Perth Australia. When we were there, he mentioned how he wished we can go to Perth and relax with his parent and siblings. I was more than happy to know thislaa… meaning I can jalan2 yeay!

Finally after almost 6 years, we managed to discuss this seriously..and guess what? They decided to choose Bali Island instead. It was a bummer la at first coz our heart was all set for Perth..but after taking into consideration that it should be affordable for every family member mr hubby agreed and welcome this idea. Afterall when you look at the bright side…currency wise spending wise its much much better than Aussie currency. So a luxury holiday villa we gooo 😄

But then…I suddenly got myself pregnant with number 3! Everything suddenly changed! I have noooo mood to go while I was still suffering hypermesis gravidarium. The tickets we bought earlier of the year with MAS pun suddenly got problem due to my bro who was at that time an employee of MAS decided to resign and move on before the big makeover. So MAS instructed all the booked tickets after July 2015 to be cancelled and refund. Just me as only direct blood related can enjoy the MAS staff benefits. Can you imagine…I was the only one without a ticket!! Grrrr 😅😬

I was too ill to be bothered on it…afterall I just don’t like island holiday sangat kan. So so je rasa. Mr hubby was of course upset with my lack of enthusiasm. Biasanya bini dia nilaaa yg paling excitedkannn kan! 😂😂 true health is important..

Anyway nak pendekkan story, we finally had to repurchase the whole family return tix with Air Asia and burned 3 return tix with MAS. I guess we burned few thousands je this year to accommodate to this trip 😣😯:'( mr hubby said lets just go and settle this trip k. I want everyone to be there as a family. Sedih jab…the sacrifies he does for us and his family kan.

Tapi mmg takde rezeki kamilah tu. Pasrah dgn ketentuan Illahi.

Anyway enough of the tragic part..lets go back to the day we flew to Bali. I was mostly wobbly myself but alhamdulillah after a buggy ride and wheel chair experience we managed to enjoy our Bali holiday. So here are some pics..

On our way to the airport..ada org sudah tido 😂

As expected they greeted us with kalung bunga hehe it really cheered us up 😄😄😄😄😍😍😍😍

image

Later on we stop by for prayers somewhere nearby the airport. The unique part – there is 3 worships place in one gate. A church..a buddha temple and a masjid…opposite the area was a nice area..we took some pics here b4 heading for dinner.

Thats our van! For the 1st day je laa😂

Then we off we went for early dinner. But of course not b4 a wajib stop to buy some groceries like milk and cornflakes and etc.

After dinner we went straight to our villa. By that time it was already dark.
