Bali: I Made Joni Restaurant

Assalamualaikum and Hi.

Where should I start with my Bali trip?

The temples? My hotel?

How I almost cancel the trip a week before our departure date?

Well before I forget the whole thing, might start posting something here.

So let's start with I Made Joni Restaurant in Ubud. 

I went to this restaurant on the 23rd July, around 3.30pm. I was not feeling the outing on that day because of exhaustion. Thus I requested our driver to bring us back to Kuta. He looked a little bit shocked upon that request. "Mbak Ani lagi capek ya". By the way nama asal Anne bertukar jadi Ani sepanjang di Bali. Mungkin tourists lain makin request ke tempat tu, tempat ni. Aku mengada penatlah, balik hotel la. Hikss. 

Before he sent us to the hotel, we stopped by at this fancy restaurant to have our lunch. Lunch sangat jam 3. Haha. 

One of the waiter made joke to them 'That's not a swimming pool, no no" Hahaha

The scenery is perfect for the grumpy me.

I say that it's a beautiful place where you could enjoy the food while looking across the paddy fields. The menu presents mix choices of local delicacy such as crispy duck and Western food like spaghetti. The food served definitely luxurious looking but not really that tasty. It was overpriced as well. 7 sticks of satay cost us 70000rp, more or less RM 21. Mahal gila. The service was adequate but they looked bored, almost non-existent.

Boleh la sedapnya. Well what more can you expect from satay right. Tapi mahal!

 This Banana Split costs us 60000rp

Yang ni sedap. Well not that out of the universe kind of tasty.The sambal is fine.

Reading the Trip Advisor on this restaurant after coming back to Malaysia, I found out that I'm not the only one whose being fussy. It wasn't really a horrible experience, just not worth it. 

Cuma mampu cerita ni pasal food di Bali, sebab yang lain-lain aku makan warung ja. Which is wayy lagi sedap dari yang atas ni,

Halal food in Bali is quite easy to find especially if you are staying in Kuta, Legian or Seminyak. Less choices in area such as Ubud due to the majority of the local are Hindu. KFC and Mcdonalds are in the options. So yeah, you'll have no problem with Halal food in that island. Get help from your tour guide or driver. 

That's all for now.

Norsa Sara: Hai Norsa. Gunung Rinjani? Unfortunately no. You must be an adventurer. You should do it. I'm a bit of a lazy bum when it comes to sport. T_T
