Hello Beautiful

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over 8 years now. I started blogging because I wanted to share my beauty hauls and lifestyle experiences. I'm also a pro-consumer, which is probably the fire in my life.

This blog is now happily written by the cutest couple you've ever seen. Gareth's Irish while I'm Malaysian. We met in the most unexpected way possible and since then have been in a loving relationship. He loves to eat, drink and try new exciting things (even extreme sports) while I love the quieter things in life, like spas, massages, shopping and beauty! But we have something in common, we both love travelling.

Bali Day 2: Monkey Forest, Ubud Arts, Mango Tree Spa (Loccitane) & Naughty Nuri's

7.22.2012


agenda for day 2

Continuing from Ubud Palace and lunch at Warung Nuri (best pork ribs I've ever eaten) we dropped by the Tourist Information Centre to surf the Internet (for a map to Mango Tree Spa). It's really far from the Ubud Palace but we decided to risk it! Probably an hour's walk or less. The Pura Desa and Museum Puri Lukisan is a few blocks from Ubud Palace. Pura Desa was locked, we couldn't see anything. It's a holy temple so it's probably open on holy days for prayers and ceremonies. We bought tickets to Museum Puri Lukisan. My bf really wanted to go see the paintings and arts (I just wanted to go Mango Tree Spa asap, but nvm).

Well the museum is boring, honestly don't go there. There's not much paintings and okay I admit it I don't like paintings. Maybe you guys can spend hours staring at one, I can't (face palm). What I was waiting for was this place - Mango Tree Spa. Took a taxi van there because it's just too far away. Unfortunately it was fully booked, was really disappointed.  They only got 6 treatment rooms and also serving the Kupu Kupu Barong luxury hotel guests. Next time I shall stay there.

omg loccitane spa!!!

product prices about the same

having treatment overlooking padi field? wow

We took a taxi van back to Monkey Forest, the famous forest tourist area full of monkeys. Seriously a lot of monkeys, it scared me a bit. I read online, the monkeys are kinda aggressive and you have to be careful there otherwise they'll attack you. Sure enough when I arrive, it looks like monkeys gangster paradise. See the photo below!

I'll continue with a post totally on Monkey Forest the next round! there's quite a number of cool pics captured there and a video of a monkey trying to eat my bf's banana (wait what r u thinking?).
