Bali sisters' trip 2014: W Hotel, Bistrot and Kitchenette.

I know I am jumping everywhere with my travel posts, but sometimes I need inspiration to do up blogposts! Especially travel posts as they are usually very photo-intensive.

Today's thought process:
*trying to arrange for dinner with Teeny*
Oooh, I miss my sisters!
*thinks back to our sisters' trip early this year*

And hence, this blogpost, haha.

I have already blogged about Day 1 here, as well as photo sneak peeks here and here.

Buffet breakfast at W Hotel.

I love hotel breakfasts! One of my favorite ones is at Lebua in Bangkok.

My good-looking brunch partners.

We deliberately picked a seat outside because what could be better than having breakfast facing the sea?

Alas, our plans were thwarted. Look at the dark clouds swirling ahead! T_T

 I was really looking forward to chill at these hammocks, but our future looked bleak (no pun intended).

My happy, beach-bunny look. :D

We were all slightly disappointed with the breakfast spread at W hotel-- it could not hold a candle to the one in Lebua at all! However, just before we were about to call it a day with brunch, we realized that there was a menu on our table-- you can actually order loads of fancy breakfasts from the menu, complimentary with the breakfast. Think yummy options like vanilla french toast, wagyu burgers and foie gras.... We felt really dumb for not realizing the menu earlier. T__T

So people, if you ever stay in W, make sure to RTFM (Read The F*cking Menu wtf)!

Being the kiasu people that we were, we die-die went ahead to order a few dishes from the menu despite being really full already haha.

Since the beach was out of the question (due to the rain), we decided to head back to our villa to chill.

And chill I did. :D

Love the netting details on my bra top!

It is actually really a bra wtf. Since it was made of spandex and is pretty lightweight, I decided it is too pretty to be worn on the inside, haha.

Rain didn't stop us from having fun!

Testing our flexibilities with all kinds of funny yoga poses. Some of which are NSFW, haha.

Jing wanted to imitate the bridge pose I did above, but she just couldn't achieve it HAHAHA.

W for W Hotel. W for Wen!

Right before checking out! We decided to pamper ourselves with ONE night at the W hotel, and moved to a cheaper villa after that, haha.

Kicking up a fuss for having to check out wtf.

Walked longingly around the hotel grounds one more time before we left...

For lunch, we went to Bistrot cafe in Seminyak.

Love love love the decor here! Food is so-so only though, but I reckon most girls will feel very happy and at-home here. :P

We had dinner at Jimbaran, experiencing one of the most beautiful sunsets in my life. This photo is totally unedited!

Can't remember the name of the restaurant that we went to, but I wouldn't really recommend it anyway. The place was quite dirty. :/ Instead, I would recommend Menega Cafe more, which I briefly mentioned here.

A fun part of dinner is having this local band serenade you during the dinner, haha.

How they work is that they will approach your table and ask you where you are from. And based on your nationality, they will burst into a famous song from your country! :O We heard songs in Chinese, French, Spanish, Malay, Japanese.... When they came to our table, we told them that we were Korean. And they really sang a song by Big Bang! :O :O :O

You will have to tip them a little, of course. But it's all in the name of fun! :)

Since it was quite early after dinner, we made our way to Kuta, and shopped a little in Beachwalk, one of Kuta's newest malls.

If you happen to be at Beachwalk, you can try out Kitchenette, a cafe/ Crêperie. We mainly tried out their desserts, which has a huge selection such as cakes, crepes, cupcakes, pies etc.

 Conclusion of this blogpost?
I miss my sisters even more!!
