Ubud is definitely one of the highlights of my Bali trip. Here I found the calmness and serenity of the surrounding that I’ve been missing for a while. Coming from Singapore, a busy country surrounded by myriad of modern buildings, Ubud is definitely a breath of fresh air.  I spent 5 days here and discovered amazing things to do in this mystical yet very colorful town of Bali, Indonesia. Not to mention I discovered a lot about myself too…

It was 12nn of March 8, Imanuel (the best Bali driver ever!: read story here)  picked me up in my hotel at Kuta. I remember well that my morning wasn’t that well. I had to deal with my motorbike accident being hassled by the motorbike owner, that I pay for the motorbike’s damage. Of course, I didn’t have intention of running away from him but we agreed to meet at my hotel at 10 in the morning, instead he woke me up at 8am insisting that I pay soon or else he will collect my passport and report me to immigration (imagine this scenario early in the morning nursing my 2 day old bruises, feeling intense pain in my shoulder in my pajamas!… definitely not your idea of a good morning). Anyhow, I managed to finish everything calmly that day keeping in mind that soon I’ll be heading to Ubud and that everything will be over soon…

And alas!, Ubud didn’t disappoint me. The moment we enter  Ubud’s parameter, I witnessed the environment changing and together with it is a sense of relief and happiness. I opened the window of the car, the breeze of the air felt like a healing sensation to my wounds, the site of amazing temples and intrinsic designs covering this town was a feast for my eyes, and in that short time, my memory of the accident was replaced by excitement. 🙂

After an hour of drive, we finally arrived to our destination, Greenfield Hotel and Restaurant. A pre-booked villa that offers amazing rice paddy view.  I felt my face smirking, my facial muscle moving because I couldn’t help but smile. And silently I uttered to myself  “this is such a nice place” 🙂

There’s this fountain just in front of the reception, I was so tempted to jump in for my fountain jumping photo collection, but at this point I had to tame myself since I’m still nursing some wounds.

Now up the room… I love the verandah, more than the room actually… 😉

If you get bored inside the room,  you can roam around the compound and take a deep into the pool, I managed to swim for 3 minutes since I was scared that my wounds will be infected… yeah yeah, kinda ruined my swimming plans… 😦
