Dinner at Pison, Ubud · 6:18 PM

Nice cafe next to the rice field. The Scallop Mentaiko Pasta is really tasty, with nice sauce and some crunchy fried stuff. My wife enjoy the Chicken Gordon Bleu with is crispy and tasty, though slighty salty. The Chai Pear Caramel dessert is average though. Strawberry Lemonade is nice and refreshing. The Expresso Avocado is quite think and bitter, where the taste doesn't quite compliment each other.

Massage at Agatha Spa · 8:35 PM

Nice full body massage. 1h30m for IRP 140,000.

Brunch at Laka Leke Restaurant · 10:00 AM

The crispy duck is really nice, real crispiness and tasty. Plus they gave 3 types of sambal, from mild to very spicy. The curry prawn is not bad. The restaurant itself is a landscape garden next to a paddy field, so plenty of opportunities for photos.

Spa at Jaens Spa Ubud · 1:00 PM

Came for a real spa, not just a massage. We opt for a romantic couple spa: 1 hour of massage, half an hour of scrub and half an hour of flower bath. If you wanted something more fancy than a massage, this is the place to go to.

Hiking at Campuhan Ridge Walk · 4:00 PM

A simple walk on a ridge near Ubud. People comes here to have some exercise, and tourists do visit here as well. End of the ridge is another village.

Dinner at Murni's Warung · 6:56 PM

Food is nice with a lot of variety.

Breakfast at Suka Espresso [Ubud] · 7:30 AM

The food is good, coffee is good, and not expensive. Sourdough is tasty and crunchy.

Waterfall at Tukad Cepung Waterfall · 9:30 AM

We depart at 8.30am from Ubud, so the queue is still fairly short. Sadly it is cloudy, and the cave didn't receive much sunlight to make the photo looks good. This is very much an Instagram spot, where you can't enjoy the big waterfall and the water is too shallow to swim in. There is another much smaller waterfall whicj you can enjoy going under it, and also a cave next to the small waterfall which has another nice waterfall in it. So, this is still an enjoyable place to visit. Entrance is IDR 15,000 per person.

Visit at Pura Tirta Empul · 12:00 PM

I am not much of history or culture or spiritual person, so I just went there for the view and photo. The most interesting scene is both local and tourist taking the spiritual bath. If you want to do the spiritual bath thing, engage the volunteer guide and get the special green sarong. There is a big koi pon, with really a lot of koi. A natural spring, where the holy spring water came from. Overall, it is a nice and comfortable place to visit. When you exit, there is quite a long stretch of stalls go to through. Entrance is IDR 50,000 per person Guide on gratis basis Free sarong

Lunch at Pangkon Bali Resto & Agrotourism · 2:26 PM

A big restaurant next to a paddy field, seems like catering for tourists. Food and price is okay.

Visit at Uma Ceking Resto and Swing · 4:00 PM

There are multiple entrance to the very commercial Tegallalang Rice Fields, and our driver send us here when we mentioned we wanted a less crowded entrance. Sadly, this place is still crowded, but bearable. Entrance fee is IDR 50,000 which includes walk in the rice field and photo with bird nest. Add another IDR 150,000 to enjoy the famous bali swing, or IDR 300,000 for the full package which includes everything. The swings are very popular, and there are 3 of them. Rice fields are good photos opportunity too, there are okay. This place is just too commercial and too expensive. But I guess it is still popular and many people enjoy it.

Stay at Malaya Villas Ubud · 5:06 PM

Nice small villa in the middle of the rice field. The house is made of wood, with a nice patio, big bathroom and big bathtub. It comes with a swimming pool as well, but sadly we didn't have a chance to use it. The compound maintain privacy with tall plant fence, so you could not see much of the paddy fields from within. I found the room a bit too small and too dim, with electric sockets not easily accessible. Our room only comes with 30l hot water tank, so we couldn't fill the bathtub with hot water (the owner is upgrading to a 100l one soon). Wifi is only strong in the common area, which is well lit and comfortable. Beautiful surroundings, and the stay is comfortable.

Dinner at Green Kubu Cafe · 7:00 PM

This is restaurant which serve good food, with a nice environment and affordable price. Easily one of the best place we have eaten in Bali. We grilled bebek (IDR 85,000) is very flavourful and crispy. The lontong (IDR 30,000) is very tasty as well. There is a cute and friendly waitresses during our visit. Since it is night time, we couldn't explore much of the huge compound.
