We never plan to take our wedding photos in Bali honestly! In fact, I didn’t expect there will be a proposal before our Bali trip and we booked our flights before the proposal.

The proposal was on last year 11.11.11. We only thought of the pre-wedding shoot not until March this year. I thought I want something special for my pre-wedding shoot and at the same time no need to incur so much money. Then only we thought maybe we could fit in the wedding shoot in our Bali trip! Anyway, will share more in a separate post.

Checked in to Courtyard by Marriott Bali Nusa Dua.



Very spacious room


Breakfast area

Love this hotel =)

The only downside of this hotel is the location (Nusa Dua-South). You will find it painful if you want to travel to Kuta town (North) because there is only one road and the road always massive jam one wtf!


This picture was taken early in the morning one.  Don’t be misled by it.

We were supposed to reach the studio in the afternoon to choose the venue and gown for our photo shoot the next day. But the crazy jams made us super late wtf!


Late dinner at the nearby coffee shop.

We spent the whole day 2 for photo shoot. Super tired!!!

We hired a driver to bring us around Bali in day 3.


Ubud Market


Lunch at Ibu Oka.


Babi Guling. Famous food in Bali but I think I prefer Ayam Penyet lol.


OMG see how big is the piggy!


Kintamani Volcano

The weather is cooling but not much things you can do there. They should have developed this place with some cafes or bars for the tourists.

The bicycles took by our driver nice or not? I think Bali drivers do earn some commission for bringing customers to massage, restaurant and etc and can be a little pushy.


Tegalalang Padi Field


Jimbaran Beach.  Had a grilled corn before dinner =)

Dinner at LIA. The best dinner for our Bali trip 🙂 But be mindful of the 2 set of menu pricing that they have!


Yum! Delicious =)

One Bintang beer please!

As you can see we only managed to visit 2 places only!!! We spent most of the time in the car. Bali super jam one  -___-


Took free hotel shuttle to Marriott private beach.


Full body massage at Bodyworks

My brilliant HTB brought me to this massage place at Kuta that he claimed to be MUST-GO. Took us almost 2 hours to reach! Ya it’s cheaper but the place very weird and I don’t like it -__-

I then recalled that the taxi driver has already warned us that it would be quite expensive to travel all the way down to Kuta to do massage only! There are so many massage places in Nusa Jaya. We thought he is trying to sell us something again and my HTB lied to him we have paid for the massage so MUST GO! The taxi driver is indeed correct and we should have listened to him.

After the massage, we had a quick lunch at the nearby restaurant before heading for photo collection.

Lunch @ La Lucciola


I love this bread! Yummy X2


Lychee drink very refreshing!



We planned to have dinner at Bumbu Bali but were fully booked so we went to Bali Collection to do our last minute shopping!


At the end, we skipped dinner and room service for supper instead.


Room service superb.


Heading back home.  Love this Nasi Briyani we had in the Air Asia flight =) I think only available in flight from Indonesia.
