IMG_5628


Here's my most awaited blog post about Bali !

I've never been to Bali before ~ they always say that Bali is a paradise island , I've been to Phuket and Krabi for holidays but never to Bali. I was super stoked when I got an event invitation to Bali , what do I always say ? Loving to travel and to cosplay !

In my fav jeans shirt again.
I don't do much shopping though I'm a girl , and I'm really comfortable wearing the same clothes lol. I like to wear sweater or shirt when I travel so I don't feel cold during my flight.

After the trip to the temple , Daniel drove us to his auntie's restaurant for brunch ! If you ever plan to visit Bali , do drop by " Mazmur 23 " for lunch or dinner ! Super yummy cuisine that kinda reminds me of home cooked meals. 

* two thumbs up *

Not supposed to indulge in yummy food before event or else my costume will explode but ahhhhhhh this is too good to say " no " to.

My favorite dish was the prawn with salted egg !

( I must admit that I drool a little while blogging about this )

(人´∀`)

Some  fruits to complete the delicious meal !
The furry ball fruit , I've forgotten the name by now but it was sweet and refreshing.

The lovely EO team brought me to another lovely monument before heading to Kuta Beach for sunset !

This is the " Monumen Perjuangan Rakyat Bali ".

٩(●˙▿˙●)۶…⋆ฺ

There is something amazing about Balinese Architecture ~ everything is so pretty. 
I mean it's so unique , the carvings and the design  . Never seen anything like this before.

We went there for the sunset but it was kinda cloudy so didn't get to capture the moment.
But I managed to snap this picture , feels like ray of lights coming down from the sky , so beautiful.

ෆ╹ .̮ ╹ෆ



IMG_5593


Not swimming because I can't swim.
* truth *

I'm also afraid being outdoors , because .... SUN.
They call people like me " Candle Princess " in Malaysia.
It means afraid of heat lol.


IMG_5594

IMG_5596


Visited the BeachWalk Mall .
Beautiful shopping mall , with lots of greens. Trees , flowers and vines everywhere.
Loving the green concept !

IMG_5613


Before my Bali trip , my Indonesian wifey Punipun told me that Martabak is a must try.
FYI , Martabak in Malaysia is like roti canai I think. So , I requested my assitant Fei to get me some Martabak lol. (๑╹ڡ╹๑)



IMG_5608


In Bali , they have two types of Martabak , the sweet or the savory ones.
This is a Beef Martabak.
With lots of Beef and Veggie inside !


IMG_5609


Meet my favorite , The Sweet Martabak.
It's CHEESE and Condensed Milk.

DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I LIKE CHEESE ???!

Today is the actual event day ! I'm cosplaying as Umi Sonoda from LoveLive ( Animal ver. ). One of my favorite Umi costumes , because I absolutely love the bunny ears and the skirt with different tiers of blue.

Daniel , Philbert and Fei brought me to the famous " Babi Guling " shop in Bali.
They have been baiting me with this for days but I said please bring me there the last day or else my costumes won't fit hehe.

Babi Guling means roasted pork !

I'm loving not only Balinese Architecture but Balinese Food as well.
The food is good , thank you so much for bringing me here !

That's all from me about Seishun no Matsuri in Bali !
I'm very happy to be given opportunity to travel around for events / conventions. Feeling like an explorer + cosplayer now. 6 more events to go till my holiday with Princess Hermes in Japan. It will be my first time visiting Japan as well. Can you imagine my excitement ?
