Bali Day 1-5 - Food & Travel Pictures!!
Before you get flooded with pictures from my Bali trip lol, I just wanted to let you guys know that I’m actually leaving for Cambodia on Jan 26 and I’m coming back on the 30th!! Insane I know LOL!! 2 places in 2 weeks with barely any breathing room in between ;D
We’re probably going to book a few more places afterwards!! Still undecided but I really want to go to Japan, Korea, Malaysia, & Singapore! I’m going to need a vacation from my vacation haha! But I’m starting school as soon as I get back…lol.
I want to thank you guys for sticking with me and reading my blog even though I haven’t been blogging about any Vancouver restaurants haha! But rest assured I’ll be resuming my daily posting as soon as I get back home! :D
But for now, here’s all of the yummy food I ate in Bali and some awkward pictures of me posing in front of monuments LOL!! I got soo tan, and my mom was like “When we get back to Taipei people are going to judge you for getting so dark” (since asians like pale skin) and I was like “Experiences matter more to me than my skin colour. ” LOL!!
I’m probably going to get even tanner in Cambodia because I’m allergic to sunscreen…I’ve tried every brand, even all natural ones!
We went with a tour guide so I had absolutely no control over what we ate and where we went haha. I probably would have gone to different places to eat but we were *strongly advised* to avoid street food because of the high likelihood of getting food poisoning (not going to lie, I was pretty disappointed cause I love street food lol.)
Oh, and I blurred my face in most of the pictures cause we all know there are creepers out there!! Heyy, gotta stay safe, it’s the internet after all! ;D
Side Note: This post is SUPER long LOL. It took me 6 hours to edit/arrange the photos and write haha since my computer is getting really slow. The food we ate on the first two days was a bit boring, but it gets more exciting as the post processes, I promisee!! ;D
