The perfect days.

Believing there are so many ways to be happy, and I keep wondering about the real-life paradise. It's like impossible to find a world version of heaven, but actually the nature just too great to be admired. At least, the Earth hide it best spots to be found by people. And nowadays, we can enjoy some of them.

My very favorite imagination is when I wondering my self be in an island which shine by sunshine so brightly and I let my feet touch the sand, then I see the very blue sea sparkling behind my sunglasses. I hear the most beautiful sound, and I run to the source. The waves. I also feel my body be covered by the gentle breeze.

An island, which offers so many beautiful nature offering, named Lombok is my favorites for now and years forward. Located next to Bali island in Indonesia archipelago, it known as the sister of Bali. There are many spots which can be found in both Lombok and Bali. There are Hindu temple, local culture, and of course the amazing beaches.

Everytime I visit Lombok, I never get bored when come again at same places. It is just makes me fall for many times. Even there not only beach which offer as the tourism spot, but I want to share my favorite the most, the Lombok's beaches.

This name has been famous for so long. When people heard the name of Lombok, they'll say that they want to visit Senggigi Beach. The beach itself  is located in western of the island. At sunset time, we can see the silhouette of  Mount Agung in Bali behind the sun.

This beachfront cafe is my favorite to spend the rest of the daylight with friends even family. They offer any kind of Italian food, and recently they open a homestay too. Located at Jalan Raya Senggigi Batu Bolong, Senggigi. 

Another favorite place to just enjoy the beach atmosphere is this resort named The Chandi. Located at Jalan Raya Senggigi KM 5, Senggigi.

This incredible beach, oh just speechless, is located in southern Lombok. About an hour drive from the capital city, Mataram. But this one really should be noticed. And could be the most wanted place to visit. There will no regretful after spend time here.

Having the rest of the day will just perfect when you sitting and eating Italian pizza in a beachfront restaurant. And hear country music also the nature sounds of wave. The sun makes the skin get tanning.

I chose a well-known beach resort in Senggigi Beach named Kila Senggigi Beach Resort. There were so many international tourists compare to local ones. The weather was very good, warm and also cool. The blue sea, white sand, and everything was just shining. I love to have short time for sunbathing, get the glowing skin, and enjoy the heat course.

Recently, the government really improves the tourism of Lombok. They totally put big attention to make Lombok and Sumbawa, another island in West Nusa Tenggara Province, known by people worldwide. And also be one of the world most wanted place to visit. There are so many travel agent that offers holiday packages in Lombok. Not only that, there are so many international direct flight to this island. It's just too easy to reach this real-life paradise.

I'm totally enjoy my holiday here, and will come back as often as I can. The completely perfection of days.

Bring the light on me.

So I had a late lunch with several friends to spend this lovely Sunday. We chose Domicile Kitchen & Lounge and order their kinds of Italian food. The place was not quite crowded, perhaps because we came around 2 pm, and everybody just already finished their lunch. The sun brought the light into a corner that made me extremely amaze. Really fascinating. And I decided to take outfit photos there, but then after I went home, I just realized perhaps it was too brightly so my body was so bright. Even so, the tanning effect looks perfect on me.

Pandawa beach Bali

Another famous beach in Bali that I visited during my trip with friends a couple of weeks behind is named Pandawa beach located in southern Bali. There are five statue of Mahabrata, or actually I don't know what they called specifically. Even that was so crowded, but the beach was so clean. The government really put their high concern for this tourism spot.

Well, before we reached the beach, there were beautiful cliff that we passed, the view from here was spectacular.

The Universal Truth.

A best friend of mine, Teddy, told me about an incredible quote:

There is a universal truth we all have to face, whether we want to or not.
But just because we're leaving, and that hurts,
there's some people who are so much a part of us,
they'll be with us no matter what.
They are our solid ground. Our North Star.
And the small clear voices in our hearts that will be with us... Always...

Beyond limitation.

At least there is a border in life. Border which separates the dream from reality. Dreaming a thing that hardly to reach or even never happen perhaps is the love that last the longest, hurts the deepest, but it feels the strongest. The feeling really could survive for so long, the time goes, the happiness it looks, the pain seems. But to stop dreaming for more even deeper, is beyond the human limitation. Perhaps the universe arrange something hurts but beautiful instead.

Livingstone Cafe & Bakery

Oh well well well, I can't deny that I'm a person who totally can fall for many times with the very brightly coffee shop. I love the way sun shining through the window and touch my cup of coffee on the table- even for this recent time I order green tea latte oftentimes. I really keep off my self from the darkness, and always looking for the light. Well, perhaps I avoid it because I scare of ghost, but actually I also hate it. 

I have been curious with this coffee shop since people talking and post photos relate to this place. And then I asked my trip partners to have our brunch there, and they just simply agreed! Named Livingstone Cafe & Bakery, located in Seminyak Bali. The place was quite large, and we met so many international tourist. So the point is, I'm totally in love like to the moon and back with the interior and everything! It was just became my other favorites.

The famous wall of this coffee shop, with four letter famous word on it.
And I love when the light come inside through the window and touch me.

My favorite girl, Vinessia was so pretty under the light. I was so in love with her wavy hair!

This cute boy, Channing, was concentrated play an online game.

The caramel latte.

Perhaps this is too unified, but the decision was coming from our own self, we chose egg benedict for feeding us.
