Indonesia - Bali (Lumbung Sari Luwak Coffee / Pura Tirtha Empul / Tegallalang Paddy Rice Terrace / IIga Warung / Tegunangan Waterfall)

1) Lumbung Sari Luwak Coffee

We continued our third day in Bali with more sun-kissed activities.
Before getting ourselves tanner skin, lepak dulu sambil minum kopi.

Luwak coffee is well known to be the purest of the purest coffee because it was derived from civet feces. The civet is known to eat only good quality coffee and later on poop it out back.

Luwak Coffee covered in Civet's feces/poop. 

 After cleaning the poop. Now you got yourself a clean luwak coffee beans. 

Free tea & coffee tasting on the house.
I ordered a cup of luwak coffee which cost 50k rupiah. 
The coffee taste was not bitter (don't need to put any sugar or sweetener). 

But it's not really my favorite though.

2) Pura Tirtha Empul

Next stop was Pura Tirtha Empul, a Hindu Balinese water temple which is well known for it's holy spring water where Balinese Hindus go for ritual purification.

You need to pay if you want to purify yourself in the holy spring water. 

3) Tegallalang Paddy Rice Terrace

Entrance fee is 10k rupiah per person.

This place is such an insta-worthy kind of place provided if you can endure the fucking scorching hot sun. We literally became roasted pork while trying to take some decent photos there.

The thought of walking to a lesser crowd area immediately was dismissed from our initial plan BECAUSE IT WAS SO DAMN HOT! Gila ke apa nak jalan jauh jauh. Boleh mati siut!

That's the furthest I can go (few steps below from the top only)
Okay lah tu. Cukup lah tu. Ni pun separuh mati sudah. 

To walk down the paddy rice is quite steep and dangerous.
Dah la pakai ayu-ayu long dress pula tu. Sekali tersilap jalan, jatuh tergolek anjing wei.
So we decided to not head further down for SAFETY PURPOSES.

My shoulders and hands are still tan even up until today.
All those lotions and sun screen doesn't do any justice at all.

4) IIga Warung Restaurant

After all those tanning, it's time for us to eat ourselves (roasted pork) hahahaha!

We headed to IIga Warung for their ribs steak. According to our tour guide, the owner of this restaurant used to be the Chef for Naughty Nuri.

 The place was empty because it was around 4pm+
Yeah we had a very late lunch.

 Our 570k rupiah lunch.
BBQ Pork Ribs!

5) Tegenungan Waterfall

Entrance Fee is 15k rupiah per person.

Honestly speaking, there's nothing here unless you plan to take a dip under the waterfall.
In my opinion, the waterfall is not that nice also lah. No great view pun.

The only thing good about this place is that, you can have stronger legs muscle at the end of the day.
The amount of staircase is crazy! And the stairs are very steep. It feels like I did 6 sets of leg press (35 times each).

My legs were all wobbly the following day. What a great way to end my vacation.

This is just the starting point.

Will I ever visit Bali again?

That's all for my Bali post.
