It was a sunny day but in my world it was always gray. But Once there was a time when everyday was always sunny,
Note : If you experience something like this, You’re not alone. There are actually countless people out there facing this problem. It takes time to find that you’re not alone but for those, who never experience something like this and happen to read. I beg you to not label them as weird or freak, it just their way to cope up with their problems. You better be listening and be nice to them.
I would say,most of us are attracted to someone physically for the first time.Although physical attraction is very subjective but that is the first stage for someone to make an approach. And this show, Religion is one of the least consideration when we first decided to talk to someone. Then, if you are a single individual, let’s say in your late 20’s and desperate looking for a partner. I would not recommend you to put ” Religion” to be your priority. I will tell you later why you shouldn’t do that.Then, next stage of early relationship, begin by talking with a prospective partner in order to know them better, inside and out. After we know them at least 40% of their hobby, passion, motivation and interest we begin to decide to put this particular person into a box; ( a friend, soon to be partner, or a best friend). So, from here, i assume you know their religion background. Here comes the problem, You like that particular individual, but it turned out they have different religion background so you decided to let them go for good.Meanwhile, your hearth aches, you can’t simply let them go, you want to convert them but it’s nearly impossible and you’ve been getting sleepless night. So what can you do? When The religion is against your relationship and so is your family as they’re old-fashioned and fancy a wedding in an old beautiful church, synagogue, mosque (name it yourself). Do you want to sacrifice your happiness for what they want? Haven’t you sacrificed your freedom enough?

One more day before college start!!
The last day at Bali….
My boyfriend and I spent amazing week in Bali, we got to know each other more. We had little fuss all the way especially when it comes about direction. I was the one who drive and he was my navigator. I sometimes couldn’t hear him so i often missed place or a turn over.
Bali is simply amazing, i could never get enough of it and wished to settle there for like 2 or 3 years then move to another place where it is as equal as heaven.
The only thing i did in the morning was packing and voila! we carried excessive baggage. We did simple shopping because we weren’t carrying enough clothes and we have to buy and dressed up like a tourist. We also purchased some Balinese coffee. We came earlier to the airport and roamed around. It was actually a bad idea because there was nothing much to do other than visiting the shops and walk around from one corner to another. I got so bored here while waiting for the flight while my boyfriend spend a lot in the toilet.
When it comes to eating, it’s like a lottery, especially for a traveler who wished to try food from street stall. They should be careful, prepare your diarrhea medicine as early as possible. Also, bring your own napkin as it is always the best option since most of restaurants are bit stingy. I think people need to increase their hygiene level because it’s bit uncomfortable getting sickness while traveling.
If you come from colder countries, never ever forget a sunscreen and sunburn lotion, you will need and rely on this a lot. We really regret to not bring those items with us and as a result, we got sunburn and didn’t even seem to heal any sooner.
Bali definitely worth your time and your money. It offers more than just a stunning landscape. jokingly speaking Bali offers companion, and anything which you wouldn’t be able to get back home. Apparently it seems as long as you’re tall and white everyone will easily attach to you like a puppy.
Don’t be surprised when people cat calling ” mister” or ” how are you”, they’re just trying to be polite and ask you whether you’re interested in buying whatever they sell. Multiple times we got offer with items like ” condom” and ” viagra” well you name it. They did that even while i was driving my motorbike as they shout from the pavement. I simply ignored and rode away.
” Bon dieau, these people” that’s what often comes from my mouth.
These writings are purely based on our experience while traveling to Bali, each of us might get different experience or exposure due the neighborhood which we chose to stay.So people feel free to always write and share your experience to the world as it cost nothing to simply tell the truth and its peculiarity.
Have a safe travel and have a great time

We explored our surroundings in our fifth day in Bali. In the morning we decided not to take breakfast from the hotel and went to domino instead. Fortunately, The hotel is near to KFC, Domino and several convenient stores. It was a sunny day and the road was slight busy. It didn’t take long for us to walk as it was only 0.80 km away. As soon as we entered the domino, my boyfriend spotted a blondie girl with cycle helmet and vegan tattoo on her wrist, her knee and the shoulders. We were assuming that she was a vegan and she mesmerized us by eating at Domino which obviously a highly processed food plus, less healthier and from that point of view, my boyfriend and i looked at each other in an awe.
As we finished ordering our pizza, we took a seat near the window and that girl was sitting outside the restaurant while waiting her order. I put on music while my boyfriend was reading something on his mobile. Nothing special until once her order got delivered and sat back on her chair. What she did next, got us surprised!
She opened the pizza box and suddenly rose up from her chair. She took the pizza box and placed it on the fuckin dirty floor. We were really surprised and decided to watch her further action. Then, she grabbed her phone and took picture of it. She took several pictures from different angle and our expression that time was priceless. Next, she got up with the pizza box and sat back then she typed something along with its picture. She opened the box and ate only two pizza then throw the rest on the garbage.
He and i told our friends about that and his friend thought it was an indonesian who did that, but no! she wasn’t indonesian. I get it that Indonesian or Asian in general is stereotyped as the kind who take pictures of every single food they’ve consume yet that proves us something different.
As we finished our brunch, we decided to try an indoor activities which we previously googled and our choice goes to Totem room escape. We picked indoor activities because he kinda dislike going outdoor in the heat. uh, well Bali is frickkin hot even I can’t stand the heat.
Totem room escape is a reality escape room which will pump your adrenaline and test your patience plus intelligence to solve puzzles and mystery. There are several rooms with different levels. We picked the second hardest room which is Kidnapped room. It is a room with a story plot of kidnapping and a murder. It was scary enough and quite dark inside with scattered books, fake bloods, cold room and a ticking bomb sound. It freaked the hell out of me. If you go with little kids, I recommend something easier like Alice in wonderland. Sadly, We weren’t able to solve all of the puzzles. By the end of the game, They took polaroid picture of us and asked us to stick it on their wall along with other pictures. We really had fun time there, especially when i jumped in scare due to sudden and shocking sound of exploding bomb.
On the way back to our hotel, we passed through jalan seminyak. There was a traffic jam and i tried to drive very slowly to avoid colliding with another vehicles. As i struggled my way out there, i spotted several bare naked foreigners riding the motorbike savagely and yelling shit as if the road was himself. I raised my eyebrows and turned back to look at my boyfriend.
It is such a struggle sometimes to pass jalan seminyak and the surroundings especially in night and afternoon. The road is small but overcrowded with motorbike and taxis. Goddammit, the taxi in Bali drive slowly as a snail and it is pain in the ass. Surprisingly, there is no excessive honks and almost none is yelling shit to one another or being asked to move faster. Again, the road in Bali is lethal, be ready to die anytime.
Bali is like a whole different world unattached to Indonesia stereotype. it is truly a heaven on earth. Even some would know Bali but not Indonesia. I even would love to settle there because well, we can get beer and pork easily. Apart from that, they just don’t give a damn about your religion or your story.
