So far, so good... concoction in the mould.
Well, instead of the animals that were supposed to take shape, ours somehow turned out to be Gummy Sai! All like yatt-peck-yia!!!
Do you think it's because I've kept the Kit in the cupboard for too long? I couldn't find the expiry date on the box. Anyway, they looked so yucky that I ended throwing out the whole lot after a week. Even the boys were a little put-off by the looks despite of these being sweeties....

Mine would just play and fool around in the pool. No real swimming involved unless I FORCED them to. :-D
They would grab their pool floats and pool toys and dump them all into the water. It's a joy watching my boys having fun, frolicking in the water....without a care in the world.

Waaaa... I am like soooo cheong-hei like that. Go for few days only and got 4 parts summore!!!
Anyway, this will be the final one. :-)
Friday (23 May)..is the day that we don't go anywhere..don't do anything. However, being the kiasu one that I am, Accor was offering free gifts if you attend their 90-minute marketing talk for their new vacation club (Time-Share lah...) at the 5 * Novotel Nusa Dua. So.... after breakfast, H and the boys were dragged along with me. The boys were put in the Kids Club over there while H and I listened to the marketing guy.....
Did we buy??
No. We did not.
It doesn't suit our travelling lifestyle....PLUS...they only have ONE resort in Asia at the moment, which is the Novotel Nusa Dua. They do have quite a number in Australia, and also members are able to stay in other properties worldwide...But like I said, the overall scheme does not really suit our last-minute type of travelling. These time-share schemes somehow requires many months of ADVANCE booking.
What did we get out of this talk?
About USD 88 worth of hotel vouchers that we could use at our hotel which is pretty good.....my
potent cocktails, lunch and beachside massage all FREE!!!!
We hung out at the pool and beach for a fair bit... Actually, I must prefer this Novotel in Tanjung Benoa than the one in Nusa Dua. It's much cosier and with a village feel. Somehow, these days...I very takut of BIG BIG hotels leh. Why I donno...
No prizes for winners...All the participants got a free Cornetto. When S2 didn't win, he was winching as usual...and mumbled a "I don't want any stupid ice-cream!"....Did he eat the free ice-cream?
Of course he did!!
For dinner, we went to Kafe Warisan....also very romantic....
I had the very yummy Hot Foie Gras (now you know why my cholestrol is going uphill!!), Pan-fried Duck Breast and Hot Chocolate Cake!!
It was a delectable dinner...and a romatic one if H was not on the phone all night!!!
The next day,....we took the first flight out of Bali for home. The first thing we did was to head to Penang Bistro for an early lunch. Yup! More eating!!!
Now...is to LOSE all the WEIGHT that was gained over the last few days!!!!!
Old Lady farmer...by Amandari
Now...where did we go for lunch???
At IBU OKA ....am told that it's the best Babi Guling in Bali!
Quite Scary, hor??
I have to admit that when I saw the plates of babi guling and vege over rice, I was a bit kiah-kiah....like so messed up like that. So we ordered the meats to be separately served. Turns out... the pork was pretty tender and yummy.
This ornate door was found inside Ibu Oka...which is NOT a fancy place. So this door is kinda out of place lor.
After lunch, we jalan-jalan in Ubud abit. I was NOT allowed to go into Pasar Ubud.... Aiya..you know the 3 boys lah. Grumble Grumble Grumble.
Did stop by at the Cafe Lotus for a drink and a pee before we head on back to the hotel.
What did I have?

After lickin' our fingers, we head on back from Denpasar to our hotel...arriving back at about 5 pm. Since we had some time to kill before dinner, the boys head out to the beach and pool. H and I just sat by the beach bar to enjoy the sea breeze over a potent cocktail for me, and a Bintang beer for him.
Boys naturally wanted to EAT-IN again. But with H around, we got to EAT-OUT.
Yay!!!! H had already decided where he wanted to go for dinner....and it's in Kuta.
Where did we go for dinner?
Give you a guess...
It's a restaurant chain inspired by the movie "FORREST GUMP"
These signs are used to call the wait staff. RUN FORREST RUN means that all is A-O-K.The other sign, that's in RED, reads STOP FORREST STOP. And this calls out for the wait staff's attention.
Personally, I think these signs are pretty troublesome. You got to flip-up, flip-down etc. My LOUD voice can already what!!!
Some pics inside the restaurant
We had some shrimp thingy for starter and two HUGE slabs of baby pork ribs for dinner. A little weird to come to a shrimp place for ribs. But the ribs were kinda good. :-) Also had a key lime pie for dessert. No photos of food as we attacked our food as soon as it came!
S1 as FORREST GUMP!
