Sis rocky!

Nandito ka pala nung Christmas sa SG. Sayang di tayo nagkita.

I didn't like Bintan Island either. Nakakulong lang kami sa resort. We stayed in Bintan Lagoon. I think Bintan is an exception. Kaya siya mahal dahil parang weekend getaway/playground ng mga taga Singapore kaya expect to pay SG$!

Syempre for them maganda na yun considering ang beach lang nila na pwede liguan dito is Siloso in Sentosa overlooking the vessels pa. LOL

May 22-28 nasa Bali kami. Birthday ng aking labsie. I bought the tickets last year pa. Air Asia for 2 pax return less than SGD200!

I want to go see Borubodur too! Kaya lang mas mura pa to fly to Yogyakarta from SG kesa galing Bali (Denpasar).

We are looking for a reasonable priced place to stay. Bali is more of a surfers paradise. Playground naman ng mga Aussies & Kiwis. Ok kaya Tunes Hotel? http://www.tunehotels.com/tunehotels-bali-legian.aspx

^^oo sis, jan ako nag-christmas. hehe malungkot pala pag nasanay ka sa pasko dito. ;)

di ko rin kasi alam na jan ka na pala nakatira. di bale pagbalik ko inform kita, sana magkita na tayo ;D

sobrang mahal don sa bintan lagoon, overrated!. sabi nong locals mas ok daw sa nirwana resort. di man lang ako nakaligo don sa beach kasi di pwede. kaya tinamad na rin akong maligo kahit sa pool. :( tapos panay pa ulan kaya mostly nasa loob lang din ako ng room o kaya nasa souvenir shop. ;D

i enjoyed Nirwana Gardens .. siguro tagal ko na ring hindi nakapag beach sa pinas... though talagang mas ok ang beaches sa Pilipinas .. iba pa rin kasi ang Vibe sa atin eh ..

we're planning to go to Bali this year.. wala ba talagang thread dedicated for Bali? im quite surprised though .. any inputs on Bali? I was thinking of hostels lang kasi were staying for 4 nights .. thanks!

^hehe, mas maganda talaga beach dito sa atin sis. lalo na ngayong nakapunta na ako ng calaguas, camarines norte. soooobrang ganda don, wala kang makikitang basura & lumot. ;)

sabi ng pinsan ko maganda din daw sa bali. pero di na ako naniniwala sa kanya, kasi sya nagsabi sa kin na maganda daw sa bintan kaya ako nag-sidetrip don. haha! mas mataas lang siguro standard ko pagdating sa beach ;D

^I have been to Bali and it is beautiful. It is their people, culture and the overall ambiance of the place that makes it so. Pero mas maganda pa rin ang mga beaches sa atin.

Just got back from our Indonesia Trip. Will fill you in with our Yogyakarta - Surabaya - East Java & Jakarta Getaway soon.

Price is almost the same here, for food, entrance fees and shopping.

Here's our Backpacking Indonesia itinerary.

Went to Bali last June. IMHO, mas maganda pa din beaches natin pero may something sa kanila na hindi ko maexplain. Siguro yung pag-embrace sa culture at tradition, dun tayo tinalo.

At sobrang mahal nga. Pumunta lang ako sa polo na store dun, Rp500K (Php2.5K) yung simpleng shirt. Hirap pa sa Indonesia, di mo alam kung ano ang fake at hindi.  ;D

I went to Yogyakarta, Jakarta and Bali last August. Of the three, Bali talaga pinaka nagustuhan ko. Sabi nga ni laey, their beaches are nothing special (lalo na kung napuntahan mo na mga magagandang beaches sa Pilipinas). Yung pag embrace talaga nila sa culture and heritage nila ang nagpapaganda sa Bali. It's very different talaga from the rest of Indonesia.

Di pa ako masyadong nakapag blog about my Indonesian trip, but ito ang panimula: Travel Expenses in Indonesia. Sana makatulong sa mga nagbabalak pumunta ng Indonesia :)

i didnt expect anything bongga naman kaya i was not disappointed..
i actually enjoyed my trip there with some of our kababayans.
the best part is when we went to the biggest shopping mall and we had our groceries and it was very cheap! Olay,pond,shammpoo products are 50% cheaper than here. Bongga talaga!

and if you would like to get stamped with your passport to have an additional stay in singapore. the cheapest way is in indonesia. almost 1000pesos balikan na un, then you can get 30days extension in singapore. unlike in KL or malaysia, ang layo and expensive pa.

may mga shopping complex (forgot the name) din sa jakarta di nga lang kasing gaganda ng mga mall natin.  Meron din doon na parang Glorietta natin kaya lang mas marami talaga mall sa atin. pero kung meron ka specific brand bilhin mura sa Indonesia, lalo na Lacoste na orig pero dapat sa mall mo bibilhin.  Mukha lang expensive kasi Rupiah na hundred thousands ang bilihan hahhaha.ang hirap mag-convert.Dala kayo calcu or ready lagi ang cel nyo sa conversion kasi nakakalula yung Rupiah.

Cheap mag-tour sa Indonesia, pati ang mga hotel doon maganda at mura lalo na sa side ng Bali(Denpasar).Tama yung ibang sisses natin na nakapunta na sa Indonesia, mas magagandang di hamak ang beaches ng Philipines kesa sa kanila kahit ikumpara pa sa Bali nila, nga lang ang mga tao din talagang naka-embrace sa heritage and culture nila and that makes Bali good, pero the beach di gaanong kagandahan.  Also if you want to go on surfing, ayy grabe doon ka mag-aral mag-surf at sobrang cheap (di ko nga lang na matandaan kung how much binayad namin) plus w/ matching massage sa beach na parang lumalabas P50 1 hour na yun.  Mura din ang food at mga souvenir items nila.  Mga woodworks ang gaganda at mura pa.
