If you want a great book to read you must get The Happiest Refugee by Ahn Do. It's an amazing story about Ahn's journey from Vietnam and setting up his life in Australia. I have a bad habit of starting books and not finishing them but with this one, I could not put down, I read about half of it in the first two days and I have about 5 pages left. We read around the pool for hours everyday. This book makes you laugh and cry. Love it!
Lunch at the hotel and I tried a Strawberry Mojito for the first time. AMAZING! Where has this cocktail been all my life?!
Our view at lunch, beautiful, with tables and chairs in the sand.
State of Origin was on that night and there was nowhere locally that was showing the game. D and I headed over to Legian to find a nice bar, chill and watch the Footy. ALL the bars where packed and you needed to book a table! We didn't realise that it was that crazy, we walked from Bar to Bar and all full. D started to get a little peed that we couldn't find a bar, so he resorted to getting a back massage on the beach.
To relieve the stress, all the boy wanted to do was watch the footy! Poor thing!
No massage for me, I just chilled with a ice tea.
Finally after walking about 2km, we found a sports bar, also packed, they were still allowing patrons but only with a fee of 50,000Rp ($5) But there was NO room inside?
So we watched from across the street for a while.
The atmosphere was so fun, we've never been around Queenslanders while watching Origin and most of the people in the bar were from Queensland. All the Indos were wondering what the hell was going on? I explained to a guy in Indonesian, that it was a very important Australian sporting event. Lol.
NSW was getting beat, so we left and had dinner at a restaurant at Discovery Mall over looking the beach at Kuta. We had a feast, It seemed like D hadn't eaten for days! He had Salt and Pepper Squid, Fried Noodles AND a Fried rice!
I just had Satay Chicken. Standard.
