πŸ“ Coffee Cartel Jl. Werkudara No. 8, Legian, Kuta Open Daily 7.30 am - 5 pm Rate: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ On a rainy day, I headed to Kuta around 3 pm to revisit a charming French bakery I had been to 3 years ago, only to find it was no longer there, probably due to COVID πŸ˜” It's funny how I spontaneously stopped at @coffeecartelbali – maybe it was the beautiful surroundings πŸ₯° You know how much I adore colorful places like this, don't you? 🀭😊 The place may not be that big, but it was great that there weren't too many people when I visited 😁 (introvert problem), so it wasn't too crowded🫣 It's a cozy place, and I especially loved the pretty bathroom (I forgot to take the pics)! 🌸 It feels like a cozy little home with beautiful flowersπŸ’πŸŒ· and colorful decorations all around πŸ§‘πŸ’› It just makes me so incredibly happy being there!☺️ The staff was super friendly and great at keeping the conversation going πŸ’• Their last order is at 5, I did wish I could have stayed longer, though - next time, I'll be sure to get there earlier! πŸ€“ Do you like visiting lovely cafes like this? ❣️ #balivibes #balibeauty #baligasm #kutabali #balinesegirl

Happy Monday! How was your week?

What time do you usually start your day? πŸ€“ I usually wake up around 6 or 7 and take my dogs for a walk πŸ•, then I clean up the house 🧹 and make sure my furry friends are fed 🐾 After that, I do a quick check of my email πŸ’Œ and social media before getting ready for the day πŸ€— I have breakfast around 8 and then get ready to work πŸ‘©β€πŸ’», either from home 🏑 or at a cozy coffee shop β˜•οΈ I work from 10 am until 5 or 6 pm, translating πŸ“–, reviewing documents πŸ“„, or adding subtitles to videos 🎬 What does your morning usually look like? πŸ€” #workremotely #workfromhome #freelancetranslator #indonesianlinguist #remoteworklifestyle

I find it difficult to stay loyal to just one perfume, not because I'm indecisive, but because each fragrance serves as a companion to a different aspect of my life ✨️😍 There's the warm, woody embrace of sandalwood and amber that wraps me in comfort ☺️, the fresh burst of citrus that invigorates my senses on bright 🌞 mornings, and the delicate floral notes that make me feel effortlessly elegant on special occasions 🌼 Which scent tells your story today? πŸ€” #perfumecollection #perfumelover #instaperfume

πŸ“ Lazy Cats Cafe Jl. Raya Ubud No.11, Ubud Open Daily 8 am -10 pm Rate: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Whenever I visit Ubud, my least favorite thing is the lack of parking area πŸ˜” There are so many great places in Ubud, but the lack of parking can be a real pain! πŸš«πŸ™…β€β™€οΈ But it was worth it when I got to this artsy placeπŸ€—πŸŒΈ It's called @lazycatscafe πŸ˜Έβ˜•οΈ - well, there are no cats here. But you can find some unique cat paintings πŸ–ΌπŸ˜Ί As always, my hobby is to visit places that are unique and colorful 🎭 Although not big, this place is quite cozy, and I can see the streets from the balcony spot ❀️ Most places I've visited have had really friendly staff and yummy food, especially considering the prices πŸ˜… During my explorations in Bali, I haven't encountered any places with bad service πŸ˜Άβ€πŸŒ«οΈ I like to think that I'm pretty patient and understanding πŸ˜‡ Even if a place takes a while to serve the food, the taste isn't quite what I expected, the prices are a bit high, the place isn't as clean as I'd like, or if the staff aren't as friendly as I'd hope, I try to be understanding πŸ€­πŸ˜‰ To me, everything in life is imperfectπŸ€«πŸ€”, so I choose to appreciate every single thing that happens and look at it from a positive perspectiveπŸ€“ This way, my day is filled with good feelings instead of bad ones ☺️ #ubudcommunity #ubudcafe #baligasm #balivibes #balitrip

Are you working remotely? πŸ€“ What do you like about that? 😁 When I'm working outside, the life around me serves as a comforting backdrop as I work on my TL projects πŸ“„πŸ‘©β€πŸ’» The eclectic mix of people, each absorbed in their own worlds, reminds me of the diversity of thoughts and ideas that make our world so rich πŸ€“πŸ§ The barista's meticulous care in creating the delish cappuccino β˜•οΈ, while the discussions at the next table offer snippets of stories and insights πŸ˜†πŸ€« Working from a cafe isn't just about the change of scenery ☺️ it's about the freedom to choose my environment, the chance encounters, and where work feels less like a chore and more like a journey 😁🀭 #remoteworklifestyle #workfromcafe #introvertlife #indonesianlinguist

πŸ“ Taman Ujung Karangasem (Taman Ujung Water Palace Karangasem) Do you like visiting historical places? This place's name means "Garden at the End" 🏰 It's located approximately 5 km south-east of Karangasem on the south-east coast of Bali 🌸 From the center of Denpasar, it takes about two hours πŸš— Ujung Water Palace was built by the last king of Karangasem in 1909 🀴 The architects πŸ‘·β€β™‚οΈ were from the Dutch (van Den Hentz), the Chinese (Loto Ang), and undagi (Balinese architects) It was almost entirely destroyed by the eruption of Mount Agung in 1963 and the earthquake in 1975 πŸŒ‹πŸŒŽ After years of neglect, the place is now a popular tourist attraction ❣️ From the highest area covered with large roofless pillars πŸ›, you can see the beautiful panorama. You can also see the blue ocean from Ujung Beach 🌊 and the green hill called Bukit Bisbis πŸ’š Make sure to visit the place when you come to Bali ☺️🌺 #triptobali #baliguide #explorebali #balibible #balivacation #balivibes #baligasm

Personal: β˜•οΈ I visited new coffee shops πŸ“š It's been a while since I bought physical books (yay!) 🎬 I finished Arrow @primevideo season 1-8 in a week 🏹 and re-watch Supernatural 🐢 Brought my dogs for groom + annual vaccines + order new name tags 🧽 Purchased a new vacuum cleaner 😷 Got sick 3-4 days (eww) πŸ‘§ Catch up with old friends Work: πŸ‘©β€πŸ’» translated around 13k words πŸ“„ reviewed around 7k words 🌐 updated old blog posts ✍️ wrote 3-4 drafts This month had its ups and downs 🫣 The first two weeks were pretty chill since there weren't many projects πŸ™„, but the last two weeks were super busy😁 - you know how freelance life is!🀭🀣 On the bright side, I finally got to visit that new coffee shop I've been wanting to check out!😍 I did get sick last weekπŸ€’πŸ˜·, I had to take a break from the screen for 2 days πŸ₯Ή, so I guess that's a silver lining πŸ€— Excited for more projects in June! πŸ₯° #merrysari_monthlyreview2024 #fridaymood #fridaymotivation

πŸ“ Lavis Beauty Studio Jl. Tukad Batanghari No.20, Denpasar Barat, Bali Open Daily 9 am - 9 pm Rate: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ How often do you visit a beauty salon? πŸ’†β€β™€οΈ I've visited so many times this year! πŸ˜† As a picky person, it can be a bit challenging for me to choose the perfect treatment spot 🫣 Sometimes the place isn't comfortable πŸ˜‘, the results aren't long-lasting or satisfactory 🀨, the staff talks too much 🀯, or the price isn't fair compared to the quality 😰 Additionally, parking can sometimes be a hassle 😫 My review: The parking lot is spacious enough for both motorcycles and cars. The staff sometimes directs you where to park to avoid blocking the road πŸš— I usually book appointments 2-3 days in advance at a place where the professionals are skilled and the treatment is quick and comfortable. I come here often for hair treatment because my hair is long, thick, and oily πŸ’‡β€β™€οΈ I visit at least once a week to get it washed and sometimes get a body scrub with the massageπŸ’†β€β™€οΈ It's really cost-effective 😁 From the moment I booked my appointment to the end of the treatment, the staff was incredibly friendly ☺️ It made me feel so relaxed😌 The atmosphere is so cozy and the interior is just beautiful - it'll truly make your day ❀️πŸ₯° Even though it can be pretty busy, the space never feels cramped, so you can really relax and enjoy some "me-time" here 😴😊 There are two floors, with the massage and facial services being on the second floor 🌸 Plus, there are lockers available for you to store your clothes and bags (just don't forget to bring your own key!). So, you can rest easy knowing that your belongings are safe and sound πŸ‘ One of the great things about their services is that they frequently offer promotional packages, which makes their prices very affordable 😎✨️ Everyone loves good deals, right? πŸ˜πŸ‘§ #balirecommendation #balibeauty #beautysalonbali

Hi ~ Happy Monday! How's your weekend? πŸ€— I haven't been feeling well since Sunday πŸ€’πŸ˜· The weather has been so bad lately, and people around me are getting sick 🀧 - fever, sore throat, and a cold all in one package! πŸ™ƒ This has made it difficult to sleep at night. I rarely get sick; the last time I was sick was in December last year 😷, and I had the same symptoms. I don't like working when I'm sick because I can't focus and my body hurts everywhere πŸ˜” I hope you'll have a healthy and lovely week πŸ’— #mondaythoughts #mondaymood

πŸ“ Gangga Coffee Jl.

My foodie bestie! 🍲 Do you ever find that you get full quickly but then get hungry again in no time? πŸ˜…πŸ€­ I totally get it - whenever I go out to eat, I don't order much, so people think I eat very little 🫣😝 No matter how much rice, fruit, or milk I consume, my weight never goes above 43kg πŸ«₯ I eat about 3-4 times a day, including fruit or juice in the morningπŸ§ƒπŸŽπŸŒ If I have breakfast at 8 am, I'll be hungry again by 11 or 12 πŸ€“ Can you relate? 😲 Anyway, in the picture is my favorite menu: spaghetti bolognese 🍝 #FoodTherapy #wednesdaythoughts #wednesdayvibes

What is your go-to daily fruit? πŸ₯° Bali is home to more tropical fruits than you could eat in your lifetime πŸ₯­πŸŽπŸ‰ They come in different shapes, textures, and strange colors, yet each is quite exotic in its own way πŸŠπŸ“ We have mangosteen, rambutan, dragon fruit, salak (snake fruit), durian, guava, mango, papaya, and many more 🍍🍐 Which one have you tried? πŸ₯‘πŸŒ #balifruit #fruitinbali #tropicalfruits #balitrip #baliguide #balilifestyle

I spoil my dogs a lot πŸ•πŸ˜ I've gone to the pet store 4x to buy them new balls in two months ⚾️ They love playing with the ball and destroying it πŸ˜… Last month I bought them three pairs of πŸ¦ŒπŸŽ„ clothes and they are so cute πŸ₯°πŸ˜ I'm even thinking of buying them shoes or raincoats haha πŸ˜‚ Last week their fur was just shorn because their skin was itchy βœ‚οΈπŸ» And just yesterday they had their annual vaccines and were also given itch medication by the vet πŸ’‰πŸ’Š Hope they feel better soon! 🧑 What's your weekend plan?
