i have returned...

oh what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day... have returned from bali, refreshed and rejuvenated. am still slightly high i think... i loved it. we all did. moo had a great time, so much so that we have vowed to return and also to make office trip next year. gitanjali had so much fun...

We had so much fun!!! (multiple excalamation marks – a sure sign of a disordered brain). Bali was (in no particular order) wonderful, temples, ginger tea, shopping, gitanjali, dokar rides, stone elephants, snake, bats, buffet breakfast, barong, hard rock hotel, aeroplanes, “sayang”, bargaining (“can get anything at least 50% off” ms is king of bargaining – at least so he says), tanah lot (!!!!), volcano, strong winds, padi terraces, wonderful (oops said that before. shall say it again), earrings, pasta, planet hollywood, arak attack, arak madu, bali hai, warong made, narrow lanes, spa, massages, flower baths, gentle people (how colonial of me to say that, but its’ true), makciks everywhere, Doggies (gitanjali’s Sandra Boynton book – woof woof), handbags, sarongs, green locks, wood craft, gitanjali, ganeshas, waves, beaches, sunsets, temples at every junction, black and white sarongs around statues, bhima and arjuna, flowers in wooden pots, lovely, Australians, Japanese, Balinese, hindus, agong, bacon, beachside radio station (in a van, no less), system of a down, fantastic music, beautiful, hair plaiting, manicure, pedicure, temporary tattoos, hats, nachos, monkeys, tega lalang, fabulous…

bought presents for everyone. owl babies for gitanjali (one) and alysha (two). after we bought them, we went next door (to another shop) and they had 3 owl babies and the mother! (sigh) too late right?) very sad. next time.

shall blog more later as being bombarded by kavi and mehala on details of trip. anticipate more gushing....
