SEA CIRCUS

 

 

Hey Dears,

Today, I was a Early Bird in Bali. I took the Uber for the first time in Bali with my sweet colleague from Kuta to Seminyak without traffic jam this morning. Thanks to Instagram or other western travel bloggers so that I could find this new wonderful spot named Sea Circus which offers the best breakfast options and I felt so happy that I could finally explore the new area where I’ve never been to instead of being lazy in the hotel room.

As I noticed, Seminyak is just like a SOHO area in Bali, and I just stared to know this amazing place with so many creative shops may not be too late. Colourful and cute circus painting outside of the restaurant caught my eyes which is the symbol logo on most popular Instagram photos. They open at 7am and close at 11pm. The waitresses wear the colourful geometric figure uniforms with the lovely smile to welcome all the guests when you just open the door.

Most of the guests are from western countries not many Asian know this place. Yes! For me, it is perfect to be the unique one because sometimes I felt tired of seeing people with the same culture around me especially in a foreign country. While traveling solo, I pretty enjoy to be the only Asian girl walking on the street in the western countries because life should be some different and there are always little surprises waiting for me to discover.

Happy Women’s Day!

A lovely Breakfast made my day. I ordered a Blueberry Smoothie, Dragon Bowl and Banana Pancake with dry coconuts on the top, and this is my first time to try Palm Sugar Source for the pancake. They taste really great especially the pancake like the photo I posted on Instagram. Now, I finally understand what Western’s lifestyle in Bali which is totally different from Asian.

I never felt tired to come back to Bali again in one month. This job needs a strong independent personality when your colleagues need more sleep in the hotel, so I decided to take the Uber alone in the early morning to say hello to my favourite Sea Circus.

I love the food here as always. Hmmm, what I ordered for the second time were Acai Bowl, Banana Pancake with blue berry jam and the mango smoothy. It is impossible to stay as long as you wish in this kind of restaurant in our country because you have only 90 minutes permission to stay and there are so many people still waiting for a seat.

So, I did really appreciate what I had to enjoy the amazing breakfast/ Brunch in such a beautiful Bali morning to listen to the soft pop music for the whole morning. I will definitely try something different for next time.

Be the happy girl forever.

今天是早起的鳥兒,吃早餐,拜Instagram的福,讓我意外發現了當時很少亞洲人知道,卻是西方人最愛的峇里島網紅餐廳 Sea Circus,好不容易在飛機上找到願意陪我一同探索美味的Yani,隔天一早搭Uber出發前往水明漾,這是我第一次沒有待在飯店吃早餐,也終於擺脫了在飯店周圍只有按摩或吃晚餐的單調行程。

美好的早晨,原來西方人眼中的峇里島生活是這樣的。幸好一早沒有塞車,我們坐了近50分鐘的車才抵達這間五彩繽紛外觀的「海上馬戲團」,我也終如願像其他知名的Intagramers,在朝思暮想的招牌門口盡情地擺pose拍照。

今年到了峇里島度假才了解原來這裡不只有像庫塔的風貌,水明漾的風格又是與其他地方大為不同,好像峇里島的SOHO區,路上幾乎以西方人居多,許多創意小店座落在蜿蜒的道路上,若不是時間不足,我也好想用餐完在這裡逛街。Yani說,這一帶很適合一個人過來玩,可以慢活體驗西式的峇里島生活,坐在咖啡館裡一整天都覺得很有味道。

一轉開門把,將門向內推開,笑容可掬的女服務生穿著繽紛的幾何圖型制服歡迎著我們,店內幾乎都是以西方人為主,白色系的簡約裝潢與柔和的音樂令人覺得舒服,一點都不像是來到了峇里島。我喜歡這裡給人慵懶的氣氛,除了情侶和家庭之外,也有一些專業人士如blogger或是設計師拿著筆電討論case。

還有,隔壁桌因為是38婦女節吧,都是一群明顯看出有年紀卻又樂活的女性們,大家談笑風生,彷彿影集如「慾望城市」裡的畫面,儘管身邊沒有男伴,還是可以很享受旅行的人生。反而在我們國家,和她們年齡相仿的女性幾乎都為家庭犧牲著,對我們而言,看到這樣的場面感到很不可思議,卻也慶幸自己還有機會不受家庭的拘束,自由自在地體驗異國生活。

這裡也很符合我不喜歡去很多亞洲人出沒的風格,基本上,到了一個新的國度,我是喜歡去西方人比較多的地方,探索很少亞洲人出沒的新景點或地段,很多人總是會因為媒體的渲染或是旅遊書的介紹,大家一窩蜂地擠在同一個地方,吵雜的聲音打亂了這應該是輕鬆慢活的旅行,當地人也會因此把我們視為同樣等級的人而不是友善對待,所以,去比較少亞洲人的地方,得到當地人的可愛回應會相對提高許多,這是我這幾年來的旅行感觸。

第一次來總是掩飾不了內心的興奮,沒想到真的美夢成真來這童話邊的地方用餐了。我照著Instagram的照片點了藍莓奶昔,火龍果穀片,和香蕉鬆餅上方灑上新鮮的椰子片,周圍擺上草莓切片超級可愛,這也是我第一次用棕欖樹糖漿品嚐鬆餅,Yani則是點了班尼提克蛋烤土司,這些五顏六色繽紛的視覺享受和口感完全不違合,再累都要早起吃完早餐的開心表情一覽無遺。

隔一個月再來峇里島,由於同事們都要待在飯店休息,只好自己搭Uber獨自前來,也許是水明漾給人的感覺實在是太舒服了,這次反而沒有壓力且待的時間也比較久,我嘗試不同的藍莓系列,當然不能錯過現在最夯的藍莓果碗,儘管我很喜歡藍莓,與上次點的火龍果碗相比之下,我比較喜歡火龍果給人甘甜滋潤的口感。這次一樣是點香蕉鬆餅,他們每個季節都會根據時蔬搭配新的變化,這次的香蕉鬆餅也多了藍莓口味,以擺盤而言,但我也還是喜歡上次有搭配草莓切片的甜蜜氣氛。

慢慢地品嚐想念的早餐的同時,我在想,這間店應該也是西方投資者,所以別小看這個看似簡單的菜單,都是有聘請專業的設計師或廚師完成的。這次剛好看見澳洲的兩位穿著時髦的女性設計師在研發新的口味,桌上擺放的是尚未公布且色彩更豐富的水果碗,這兩個女生不斷地拿手機拍照,應該是要創造更棒的Instagram視覺效果,然後再不斷改進擺盤的方式,這樣樂在工作的畫面實在太酷了!

美好的峇里島早晨,希望下次很快再見面。

 

 

 

 

 

Ayana Resort

 

 

The blue sky full of clouds caught my eyes on the way to Bali while seeing the stunning view throughout the window in the plane before landing. As I mentioned before, sometimes it is not easy to find the best partners to go somewhere with you in the layover because almost everyone is tired with exhausted body and would like to take a rest in the hotel only.

However, I flew with my 3 lovely colleagues this time I am familiar with who had the same interests to go to the Rock Bar to have a drink. As usual, we quickly changed our outfits after arriving at the hotel and took the Uber from Kuta to Jimbaran to the famous Ayana Resort for almost one hour. There is always traffic jam in Bali, sometimes it would be lucky to avoid the rush hour but I guess maybe the roads are too would be the main reason.

At least we finally arrived at Ayana Resort before the perfect sunset time. The day we came was not on the weekend so that we were so lucky and didn’t have to wait in line for the entry restriction. When I first stepped into the resort, I felt like I were in the dream with the Bali style atmosphere surrounded and would not wake up from the moment I stayed.

 

很喜歡今天起飛後的天空,飛機被朵朵白雲圍繞著,似乎是預告著有什麼好事情發生。飛了這麼多次的峇里島,看過很多同事朋友的照片,這是第一次來到位在五星級的「阿雅娜水療度假酒店」 (Ayana Resort),其中最令人津津樂道的「岩石酒吧」 (Rockbar)。

如同我之前的文章有提到,每個人下了飛機疲憊的程度不一樣,也不是每個人都喜歡以體驗特色文化為優先考量,很多人多半會選擇在飯店休息為主。這次,真的很開心能夠和好同事們一同前來,阿雅娜水療度假酒店位在金巴蘭,再加上下午的交通路況難免會遇上塞車的狀況,所以我們從庫塔搭Uber到金巴蘭還是花了近一小時的路程才抵達。

也許這時間不是熱門的週末時段,很幸運才踏出計程車,就能夠完全不用排隊等待入場,你們知道嗎?當我緩慢踏進入度假村的同時,彷彿意外跌落了人間仙境的畫面,眼前一片美到不可思議的景致,讓我捨不得移動一個腳步,但因為前往Rock Bar的路程很像迷宮,卻也一不小心和同事們走散了。

 

 

Rock Bar

 

 

與他們分散的這半小時的時間,不知道原來最快的抵達目的地的方式是可以直接搭纜車向下到懸崖底部,我反而走反方向到木頭階梯的徒步賞景區,沒想到多了個小驚喜,因為只有這裡才可以俯瞰整條海岸線,眼前的無敵海景一覽無遺,拍了好多美麗的風景。

快要接近峭壁的底部的同時,我的心裡雀躍不已,因為隱隱約約聽見了時尚的電音,眼前一排坐在吧台的人早就佔好位置,準備欣賞夕陽美景的同時,也和身旁的親密愛人你儂我儂。誒?我的同事們呢?原來,Rock Bar不只有這一區loungebar,還有分很多區塊是有沙發椅或是適合朋友家人們的包廂,我在人海中尋找了一會兒,終於看見他們了。

觀賞夕陽的期間,海浪隨著天色漸暗開始漲潮,三不五時大浪會打上岸來,我們的桌子接近透明的圍欄,原本點的開胃菜不小心被海水噴濕,一直躲海浪也不是辦法,只好請服務生幫我們換到安全一點的位置。看著天空中夕陽的變化,彷彿回到當時在峇里島度假的時光,似乎也不用說太多的話,呆坐在位置上喝點小酒,時間就如同沙漏般快速推移,這一坐就直到天黑才帶著不捨得心情離開。

如同峇里島的標語: Bali is always a good idea! 峇里島真是個好點子,期待下次再見。

 

Just a moment, I got lost immediately far away from my colleagues on the way to Rock Bar. Instead of taking the cable car directly going down, I followed other group of people and walked down the wood steps from the top to the bottom. Suddenly, I realised there was a little surprise waiting for me to explore because I saw the amazing ocean view from the top unexpectedly. The sunshine lighted up the ocean to be the crystal colour to attract thousands or millions of eyes along the beach.

As I almost approached to the bottom, I could hear slightly the tempo of the fantastic lounge music far away and I knew Rock Bar was not far away. But how could I find my friends in such lots of fancy seat Areas along the coast? Finally, I found them sitting close the the barrier along the coast about to sunset and then we moved to other higher place to avoid the tide coming up.

I have to say this place is truly awesome and the sunset is amazing as always in Jimbaran. Luckily, we saw the sunset changed at a silence moment and the time just like the sands passing through the hourglass. We stayed only few hours but felt satisfied until the sky completely turn into darkness.

As the Bali slogan says: “Bali is always a good idea!“ That’s right, I wish one day I could come back in my real holiday and will definitely stay in Ayana resort for couple of days!
