Bali Day 4 - 20 Jan 07

Woke up at 7:45 and was ready by 8am. Received a phone call from Pak Made at 8:15 canceling our tour - we were supposed to go to the west coast of Bali today. He had to postpone the tour to tomorrow due to some reasons. Had breakfast at hotel - well after a couple of days having the same things for breakfast - we did not have much this morning. Decided to take a cab (we got the same driver who took us to HRC on the first night - ahahah guess Bali is so small that you could bump into the same person twice) to Sindhu beach to look for the famous tootsie stall - this place was highly recommended for the fair price and variety in the internet - but do not go here!

There's practically nothing and no bargaining allowed - things weren't that cheap and definitely no variety. We then went to Sukawati market - yes this is definitely a better place to shop but you'll have to be a hard bargainer here. We then decided taht we'd still like to shop at the Hard Rock Hotel Megastore and asked the cab drivr to take us there. The fare was Rp264K for a half day ride. In front of HRC we were approached by a local man from Peninsular Beach Resort in Nusa Dua - He claimed we won 2 t-shirts and a possibility to win USD1K - excited, we followed him to Peninslar Beach Resort and met the manager - yes we did wil the t-shirts and we had to do a lucky draw for the USD1K instead we won a USD250 booklet work of vouchers. Ahahaha not that we can use them as we have the whole trip already planned - perhaps next visit then. We were sent back to the place we were picked up by the hotel (phew! didn't cross our mind that we could actually get kidnapped when we agreed to follow the man to the hotel earlier on) - So we continued shopping at the Megastore and toured Hard Rock Hotel. Planned to stay there when we visit Bali next time. We had a late lunch - more to tea at Planet Hollywood in galleria - a duty free shop - Meal at Planet Hollywood is so much cheaper and taster compared to at HRC. Shopped again at the Planet's Boutique and went around the duty free - expensive, sold in USD. At night we stroll along Poppies again, taking the back-lane once more and tried the avocade+chocolate drink recommended by our friend back in Malaysia. Had dinner at Munching Inn Bar & Restaurant (Owned by an Australian) - we had local dishes; soto ayam and chicken satay - not bad!
