Short Getawat to Ubud Bali

Two weeks ago, I returned back to Ubud to find a piece of quiet. It is about 2.5hours by plane from Singapore and one of my favourite getaway. If you have read 'Eat, Pray, Love' by Elizabeth Gilbert, you will surely remember her last destination. She gave a fairly accurate desscription of Bali and why it is so captivating. This is indeed a place to eat, pray and love. People are warm and the place is simply magical. Here is a selection of my eating, sketching and relaxing during my 5 days in Ubud. Pura Kloncing
One of the many small balinese temples scattered all over Ubud town. Jalan Hanuman
This is part of the popular Jalan Hanuman street at Ubud town. I sketched this from my hotel restaurant which is just across the road. Lots of shops selling art and craft to passing tourists. Down To Earth Cafe
I must not forget to mention all the wonderful indonesian food that I have been eating in Bali. The fried rice (Nasi Goreng) is extra yummy. This was the view from Down to Earth Vegetarian cafe. I was looking down at all the different roofs from the cafe and wanted to express the juxtaposition as layers of shapes overlapping each other.

5 days getaway back to UBUD Bali

Warung Bale, Ubud Dirty Duck Restaurant, Ubud. KAFE, Ubud Coffee Studio Seniman, Ubud Bridges Restaurant, Ubud Juice Ja Cafe, Ubud Coffee time @ Rai Pasti, Ubud KAFE, Ubud KAFE, Ubud

It was a wonderful getaway to Ubud and returning back to such tranquility is a welcome break from city maddness. As you can see from my sketches, my holiday revolved mainly around food. It was fun to hop from cafes to restaurants, trying different kind of local food and laze the day away . The locals are such wonderful cooks. The ingredients are always fresh and made with lots of love. You must try 'DIRTY DUCK Restaurant' for their awesome duck inspired dishes, try 'KAFE' for their coffee & dessert, 'BRIDGES restaurant' for their exquisite food & stunning surrounding and Cafe Wayan for authentic Balinese food.

Short getaway to UBUD, Bali

Komaneka resort @ Monkey Forest Small Balinese Shrine
Dinner @ Cafe Wayan Ubud's Padi fields
I just returned from a short 5 days getaway to Ubud, Bali. This is my 6th time to bali and still loving it. It is just awesome to be surrounded by nature and lush gardens, great way to unwind. I must make special mention of the food in Ubud. Not only was it inexpensive, the food and desserts were very well prepared and cooked. Hence all that feasting and very easy to have more than 5 meals a day. You can see more of my sketches here.

Reflections from Bali, 2004

I see lovely padi fields every morning I look out of the window of my little bungalow in UBUD.


























Famous Temple at Tanah Lot.


























This is a view from the village coffeeshop near my rented house in Ubud. Me and my classmates would go to this coffeeshop for our breakfast after our morning yoga practice.
