FL Sam said...

I stayed at Hard Rock Hotel and visited the same restaurant that overlook the volcano. Did to try the seafood at by the beach at Jimbaran? :)

Nick Phillips said...

Gee Janice, I would have been panicky if I ever did any diving, seeing as how I can't even swim in the first place ... LOL!

J@n!ce said...

Uncle Sam : So coincident. We don't have chance to visit Jimbaran. We are most of the time at kuta. The lunch overlooking the volcano is an added on, it is not part of our travel package. Oh well, it was a fun trip & really nice view & good food there :)

Blur Ting said...

Wah, so nice! Must be before the kids came along? I have never done scuba diving...got phobia

J@n!ce said...

Nick : Even though I know how to swim, my legs are weak when I am down there. LOL :D

Leonard said...

it seems you have a fun time in Bali!!

never been there before!

J@n!ce said...

Blur Ting : Nope, we went for the trip last year I think just a few weeks before CNY. My maid & MIL help to take care of the boys then :)

J@n!ce said...

Leonard : You should go there if you get a chance for a short trip. Its a friendly island. Stay at HR hotel. The gigantic pool & beautiful scenery alone makes it all so worth it :)

wen said...

wow!! now i wanna go to bali too!! is it safe there? how is hard rock cafe hotel

J@n!ce said...

Wen : We went after the Bali Bombing, visited the bomb site too. Everywhere is not safe actually, you duno when something will just occur. Life is just unpredictable. Its all fated.

The hotel is just beautiful, slightly more costly than the normal hotel there :)

Mariuca said...

Janice, u're so clever he he he.. even the pic of u and hubby having lunch overlooking the volcano, hubby can't be seen, so still dunno how he looks like lolz...

J@n!ce said...

Marzie : LOL.... I din realized that the photo was so black until you mentioned it. That was a very nice scenery of the volcano. I though you've already seen him before. I've posted his pic earlier :)

Mama Joy said...

Janice,
You are so brave for diving. Although I grew up in the tropical island of Okinawa, Japan, I never tried diving:-( I was always afraid. It looks like that you guys had a lot of fun in Bali!!!!

Health Freak Mommy said...

What an awesome vacation! How envious of me!

Mummy to QiQi said...

janice, only the 2 of u?

Amel's Realm said...

Oh yes, I remember the experience: having to pay first before doing anything ha ha ha...We only went on the glass-bottom boat and stopped by at the turtle island he he...

J@n!ce said...

LJ : Wow... you've been to Bali twice. Must be quite familiar with the place then. I've not tried the water rafting you mention. Is it fun? :)

J@n!ce said...

Hipmommy : I'm actually very scare, the thought of going down water & breathing thru the mouth piece just scare me off. I'm glad that I tried it. I'm still scare thinking of it now. I don't think I will want to try it again... haha :D

J@n!ce said...

shireen : Ask you hubs to bring you there for a short trip ;p

J@n!ce said...

Chin Nee : Yups, only the 2 of us :D

J@n!ce said...

Amel : A group of malay went on board the glass bottom boat too. They are from the same tour group as us. What did you get to see thru the glass? :)

KeV's wAlKAbOuT said...

How many days did ur spent in Bali? Besides the sun, sand and the sea, wat's interesting to visit in Bali leh?

Bobby said...

Hi Janice! I never sat that close to a volcano before - I'm so happy it didn't erupt during dessert!

JYankee said...

Is that where you were? I am totally jealous!

J@n!ce said...

Francine : I duno when I would ever dive again. I'm quite scare to be frank ;p

J@n!ce said...

Coolingstar : Hi :)

J@n!ce said...

MT : I'm not sure which is the best hotel. Friend recommended HR hotel to us. It was a good choice. We did not regret :)

J@n!ce said...

Kev : It was more of a getaway for us with family. I mean just the 2 of us (hubs & I). :)

J@n!ce said...

Heart of Rachel said...

What a grand vacation. That looks like a perfect place to have lunch especially with such a breathtaking view.

Congratulations on your first diving. I'm sure you had a great time.

J@n!ce said...
