Bali 2014 | Exploring Ubud

 Day 2! Had our daily free breakfast at the resort – their menu is really good and extensive! Though you can only order one item off it, don’t be mistaken because they are all really filling.

 American Breakfast with scrambled eggs.

 Chek and I took the scheduled shuttle service to the Ubud centre to explore!

Ubud has 2 main roads – Monkey Forest Road and Hanoman Street. They basically consist of restaurants, cafes and small shops.

I find it rather sad that the whole of Bali seems more like a tourist land rather than a country by itself. Everywhere (especially Kuta & Seminyak) caters more to foreign tourists than the locals themselves. But I guess it’s the same everywhere else in the world.

 It was our lucky day and we came across an Italian restaurant that specialises in pizza! The place has a buy 1 get 1 free offer every Saturday along Monkey Forest Road.

For dinner we tried out Warung Schnitzel, because I found it recommended on Tripadvisor and it was near our resort.

 Their schnitzel is really good! It is really flavourful and the accompany sauces like mushroom sauce and their special sauce make everything better.

 Sadly their lasagna is not their specialty – it had no taste whatsoever and it is really flat.

TIP: it was only day 2 and I was feeling quite fat and gross, probably because every meal had meat in it and it was a bit overwhelming. I’ve learnt that when travelling, try to pace your meals and do not over eat. It’s easy to do so because you want to try everything but it’s not worth feeling too full either.

TIP: when in the Ubud area, try to get back to your accommodation by 8pm. This is because there are not many street lamps and very little shops are open. So there’s actually no point in going out either, haha. Chek and I learnt that while walking after dinner.
