This week taught me an important lesson that human’s life can be really fragile and unexpected things can happen without us even noticing. I guess sometimes we just need to be grateful and thank for the things that we already have.
I’ve been working so hard towards a goal that we all want to achieve and neglect the people around me because I spend so much time on the things I want, and spend so little on the people I need in life. This will be a really important lesson that I’ll always remember forever. From now onwards, I’ll focus on the things I need instead of the thing I want.
We were introduced to this interesting concept and dining experience by my dear friend HT; who is friends with Bali Asli's founder and executive chef, Penny. You've certainly got to book this trip in advance as Penny helped arrange everything from the driver, to a village and temple tour. We spent 2.5hrs on the road from Uluwatu to get to Bali Asli which is nestled in the foot hills of Mount Agung, Bali’s most sacred mountain, surrounded by rice fields, where no other buildings are seen. It was a little cloudy that day otherwise we would have gotten a good look at the still active volcano 🌋 😉
Bali Asli's ethos is to promote Balinese culture and cuisine without exploiting its people. Most of their ingredients are either grown in their garden, in their neighbour’s garden or purchased from the local market. Making everything you consume there sustainable and made with love.
Worth it for a day trip! 😉
