Bali: statues, monuments and colourful streets….


If you ask me what is the distinctive thing about bali that i remember after two and half month have passed? it would be their fervent for rock statues and their culture that is still held strong by the local folks…. the monuments were outstanding. the people there were one of a kind and steadfast to their beliefs despite the island is being over commercialised and too business-like nowadays. The folks still wear their traditional costume (especially the ladies young and old) to the temple with offerings in their basket which were carried on their head!! you will hardly see a house without a business signboard or anything to sell in front of it. be it a salon or simply an eating place, there must be a business going on. in ubud, almost every single house was transformed into a shop selling all kinds of local products. these shop houses were their home!

Ubud is well knows of its painting and wood sculptures. the wooden sculptures or furnitures with good woods that we buy in Msia (esp in Miri, Swk) for RM400 or more can be bought at RM150 there….. hisk!! talking bout this make me pissed!! cos i forgot to buy my Giraffes!!! T_T huhuhuhuuu……

ok now, stop crapping. here are some of the unique monuments and the many random shots that i captured along the way on the streets of Bali. u can scroll down very fast if u like :p
