Eat, Pray, Love & Play Bali – Part 8.


With 2 days to go before 2015 ends, our dinner at Restaurant Locavore, located along the lovely shopping cum dining stretch of Jalan Dewi Sita in the heart of Ubud, got my vote for Restaurant of the Year by the time our epic culinary journey ended.


Befitting the heritage of the founders Chefs Eelke Plasjmeijer and Ray Adriansyahthe, the high-ceiling Locavore is decked out in Scandinavian chic – with clean lines blending with rustic traditions, pleasing lime-green and grey hues complemented with stylish local recycled wood furniture, lovely flower arrangements, and artfully decorated with Indonesian ornaments.


We were seated at a long table adjacent to the bar and kitchen, with a good line of sight to the chefs busy in the compact kitchen.


It’s a joy to watch the enthusiastic young chefs at work, guided by the maestro.

Eat, Love, Pray & Play Bali – Part 7


I went to pay homage to award-winning Ibu Oka, an Ubud institution that draws foodies from all over the world, and to see if the hype is deserving. Ibu Oka started life as a roadside shanty selling Babi Guling (Balinese roast suckling pig), and was made famous by celebrity foodie Anthony Bourdain on his “No Reservations” TV program.


The Ibu Oka brand has since expanded to a few locations. We dined at a newer, cavernous outlet that was more canteen-like than restaurant, with a feeding frenzy ambience brought on by the touristy lunch crowd. Service was decent considering the busy hour.


The tasty and succulent pork, served simply on a piece of waxed paper, comes from a suckling pig stuffed with garlic, galangal, turmeric, lemongrass and chili and slow-roasted for hours, with the aroma of the herbs well-infused into the meat.


The crackling is…

indahs: dive, travel & photography

Most of Raja Ampat’s advertising shows the picture of Wayag Islands. This area is without doubt an excellence choice to be the icon of Raja Ampat (West Papua, Indonesia). Wayag is a cluster of uninhabited small islands. They are stunningly scattered like a maze above the crystal blue seawater. Magnificent view! Wayag is definitely the most beautiful area that we visited during our diving holiday in Raja Ampat.

We spent two nights in Wayag, arriving in late afternoon after heavy storm and waves to reach the islands. Our liveaboard boat had problem with its generator and we did not have electricity and fresh water for half day. It was terrible, however the splendid view of Wayag islands made up for it.

We climbed to the peak of Wayag to see the archipelago up of the hill. It was not easy since the hill formed of rocks inclining almost 90 degree…

DSC05475DSC05446For our maiden dinner in Ubud, our driver recommended the under-the-radar Bale Udang. Bale means “floating pavilion” and Udang means “prawn” in Bahasa Indonesia.


No prizes for guessing that Bale Udang is a restaurant specialising in prawns served at quaint bamboo pavilions built over a large pond, almost a lake, teeming with fishes.


The main gazebo is a massive Cirque-du-Soleil-tent-like bamboo structure that’s amazingly built with just interlocking joints and no nails, or at least not that I can discern any.


The sprawling pond and surrounds are artistically lighted with bamboo lanters, with the rippling reflections creating a surreal ambience. Each bale has a bamboo tube that you can beat on with a smaller bamboo stick to summon the waitstaff. You are provided with packets of food pellets to feed the kois in the pond.
