Bali Day #1 – It’s Ruther’s 50th
Goodness me, this is our first time in Bali in 6 years. Yes SIX years. I can’t believe it. It was with our best buds from Melbourne, and year before that for Barrie and BingBing’s wedding. That means that Amy was 4, Ollie was 11 and Jude did not even exist. So let’s rectify that. Let’s have Bali Day #1 – It’s Ruther’s 50th. Couple of other call outs though. I cocked up our flights with points and cash bookings, so we Ollie, BeBe and I went this morning and Mary, Jude and Amy came at 1630 on same day. Yes I am a dick!!!
C’est la vie. It was still a rather interesting day for all concerned – I believe. We ha to get up at silly o’clock, Mary and Kids did not. Now that kind of makes sense actually. Ruthers and GANG is on his way in a few days, yep we decided to Christmas here too, not just the birthday. So actually this is our Bali Day #1 – It’s Ruther’s 50th, and ours only. Keep watching – another 10 blogs to come!!!
But the fun starts before we leave of course. Amazing gifts come in from overseas for Christmas and the wee ones and the not so wee one now have disposable income too for Bali. Oh no. These kids are now my very own Crazy Rich Asians.
Indonesia is Muslim, as you are probably aware, but Bali is like 85% Hindu. So PORK is on the agenda in a BIG WAY. Babi Guling rules here. It is a hotch potch of foods from all over the planet, and it is DAMNED GOOD across the board. Check IsLifeaRecipe.net for individual restaurant blogs. They all deserve a separate blog, as the food was top notch.
So a rather disjointed first day to say the least. But we all got together in the end for Bali Day #1 – It’s Ruther’s 50th. It turned in to a cracking day. Retail and Food Therapy – oh yes. Definitely have a look at our villa choice – really nice, comes with brekkie and then it is all yours – Rajapala, Seminyak on AirBnB. We missed you Bali. We surely will not be leaving it so long next time. Maybe even in 2019 my love – if you have not been, get yourself on a plane because you will – ENJOY!!!
