Whenever I go to Bali, my shopping senses are shocked by the amount of choices and all the gorgeous stores. I try to take note but really the ones I remember are the best ones. Just wanna share with you my favorite stores (aside from Jenggala, Shell Museum and Roxy)

SANUR RESTAURANT: Cafe Batu Jimbar Brunch

12-Cafe Batujimbar Sanur-011

Pictures of the food, super cute retro interiors and menu after the jump!



If you find yourself in Bali Collection and you are looking for a place for beers or a place with a band, you can check out Pica Tapas Bar. It’s a lively place that serves seafood and grilled meats. I was surprised with the name because I usually associate “tapas” and “pica-pica” with Spanish food [read more]
