Our Honeymoon - Bali Part II - Villa Ylang Ylang [Travel]

Tuesday, 30 June 2009

I'm finally posting pictures of our honeymoon after 3 months! For those who have missed our wedding, you can read about it here, and here for part I of our honeymoon (pictures of the awesome villa!).

So here are some pictures of what we did and the food we had at the villa. We spent most of our time in the pool and relaxing in the villa, not to forget the Balinese massages we had too. As for food, we just told the manager or chef what we wanted and they would try their best to accommodate us. We were served lots of snacks and fruit platters throughout the day!

Day 1 - dinner at the villa. We were given a menu and we had to choose the dishes we wanted beforehand so they could do the grocery shopping. Foods and beverages were charged based on grocery cost system. We paid for the ingredients at cost price so it was really cheap and the quality was surprisingly good. To be honest, the food at the villa was way better than what we had outside the villa and that's the reason why we ate in 2 nights out of 3.

Dessert 1 - supposed to be cendol - totally unlike the normal Malaysian cendol which normally has shaved ice, palm sugar, coconut milk and green jelly. It was just sago with coconut milk and it was warm.

Dessert 2 - bubur hitam (black rice dessert) - was burnt. We were wondering if the burnt taste was normal and some people suggested the local style was to add coffee to make it so. A friend interrogated the cook later and he apologised for burning our food haha. The cook made up by making some more the next day.

Selba said...

Interesting to know that the satay lilit is on sugar cane sticks, coz' as I understand, it usually is lemongrass.

Ah... too bad that you food poisoning, probably, it's not the food but the drinks?

Jenn said...

Delicious food. I'm sorry you got food poisoning. That's never fun.

burpandslurp said...

Urgh, food poisoning? You poor thing! Too bad you had to miss out on lobster. I had some lobster pasta today and it was GOOD. Ok, sorry, that was totally rubbing it in your face.
on the brighter note, everything is SO drool-worthy...i recognize all the food, and they are so deliciously familiar to me! Oh I miss these local foods sooo much!

Pearl said...

beautiful photos, but so sorry to hear that you got food poisoning!

Margaret said...

How amazing and so beautiful too.
It has been lovely looking at all of your fabulous photographs. Thank you.

Everything looks soooo good but the dish I'd dive into first would be the beef rendang! I want to stay at this resort!! The photo of you collapsed would be me after a meal like this.

I'm sorry to hear that you got food poisoning - it's awful when that happens during vacation. The same thing hit my husband and mother when we went to El Nido, Philippines. They both got sick (we suspect from spicy crab b/c it was the only dish I didn't eat!) the last evening we were there so I spent our final day in paradise nursing them. At least it was a beautiful setting . . . 8-P
