As Made was not available that day, his uncle, Ketut, met us instead and was our guide for the day. Not wanting to visit any temples nor attend the religion-related Barong dances, Ketut altered our itinerary for the day. He brought us to the Batik factory and then to the wood-carving factory. Not much of factory though, more of a few craftsmen showing their skills and guides ushering you to the showroom to buy related products.
Dinner was at the famous Poppies restaurant. It's situated in a small lane actually and we had to ask around for the way there. Not to worry though, it's so well-known that all those whom we asked knows exactly where it is. We love the cosy and warm atmosphere and glad that we have our Canon DSLR to bring out the effect.
Wanting to try Indonesian delicacy, we ordered Rijsttafel or Rice table set for 2 which features small portions of Indonesian dishes (including sates) with steamed and fried rice. The customers around us were so amazed at the display that they asked to take a photo of the set which we obliged of course. Bernard had iced tea to go along and I had my lime soda Highly-recommended! =)
As we walked out to the main streets, the blasting music from the bars and pubs were obvious. It's such a difference before and after sunset. A good thing we did not stay in this area. Walked around the area a little before taking a taxi back to our hotel.
