bits of bali: the mulia

Bali has always been at the top of my list of places to visit. Aside from beach chilling and nonstop eating and drinking, a trip to Bali to me would mean a lot of exploring of the little shops and really taking in all the beautiful interiors of the smallest restaurants and coffee shops, or buying the most random things from stands. It just so happened that one of my most recent work trips brought me there, though to an area far away from Seminyak (the main area of Bali where all the happenings are). It was more secluded and private, something I also truly liked because it felt extra peaceful, and I was able to get away from the busyness of everything even just for a bit.

Bride and Breakfast visited The Mulia, Bali a few weeks back. For those wondering why we went, we got invited by The Mulia to experience the resort. We were there for three days, which was definitely not enough to take in the whole place. Our time was spent wandering around, taking photos, and eating (nonstop!). You can read about our Bride and Breakfast experience here, but I’d like to share a few tidbits and photos of the trip that I personally found interest in.

bits of tokyo: #danielaeats in tsukiji market

We arrived in the market past 9AM. When they say “be early in Tsukiji,” it’s to (a) witness the auction that happens at 4 or 5AM or (b) get in line for the freshest catch at the restaurants. It was a Tuesday, so the market wasn’t so full, and we comfortably made our way in. We were there with the plan to eat in a restaurant named Daiwa, which apparently is one of the more affordable, good restaurants in the market. Let me give you a glimpse of our 2-3 hour visit.

bits of tokyo: yoyogi

We spent our last day in Tokyo walking Yoyogi park in Shibuya. It was so beautiful. I had seen a few photos of the park in fall, but actually going there and people watching was a whole different story. We don’t have much parks here in the Philippines (at least nothing close to that), so seeing people come out to play with their dogs, picnic over cold cuts and wine, ย practice ballroom dancing and fly a kite felt so new and refreshing. It was so great!

I couldn’t get enough of the fall colors. I think i’m unconsciously obsessed with it now, trying to subtly inject them in some work that I do. Just look at the combination of the reds, oranges, yellows, greens, and everything in between!

Anton, Chesca and I walked over to Family Mart to buy beers and cheap cold cuts in a pack that their convenience store so conveniently had there (I wish we had that here too!!!). We sat in the grass, ate, drank, and just people-watched.
