Indonesia March – May 2012 : Bali Part II

I’m almost going there again and my blog about last travel was not complete yet. Eeek bear with me I’m almost there. So where were we.

One of the most cliche tourist spot in Bali, Kuta Beach. You can avoid it if you don’t like crowded place but if it’s your first time I think you have to go there just to find out why is this one of the most popular beach in Bali.

Nasi Pedas Bu Andika. Jl. Raya Kuta Gg. Kubu no. 120 C (In Front of Supernova Supermarket)
If you don’t like anything super HOT. Don’t go there. The name of the food stall reveals it all. Nasi = Rice, Pedas = Hot, Bu Andika = Mrs. Andika.

Upon arriving you will be greeted with an array of side dishes that you can choose yourself to accompany your rice. It is only fair that every side dishes has it’s own price, thus the more side dishes you choose the more price you need to pay later. And big piece of meat/chicken of course would always be more expensive than a portion of stir fried tofu for example.

My friend Ferli is an avid street photographer. So one late afternoon I decided to follow him and his brother around to Pasar Badung. It is the main market in Denpasar and Bali. I don’t think I would ever be a good street photographer though. Because I was more interested in the food and buying them than photographing things that going on around the market.

When you go to this market. You are either an end customer or a reseller. But even if you are an end customer I bet you would need these girls to carry your shopping around. They will follow you while you make your purchase. And when you finish they would load it into your car. How convinient. But I’m amazed at their ability to carry kilograms of stuff on their heads. Thing that I would never be able to do.

But these bamboo baskets are holding an important role in the market. As you can see they are also used as container for the seller to put their wares.

Eeeeh the tray of eggs on the left looks very risky.

Janur or young coconut leaves is one staple needs of people in Bali. As the majority of the population are Hindu therefore they need this to make their beautiful offerings.

These are one of daily offerings made from janur and colourful flowers.

Young and old are all working in the market.

And how they are so creative in using their motorbike.

Ha probably the whole kiosk was on that motorbike.
