It is finally time for us to go back home.. but not without some drama. Due to our lack of planning and info, we did not know that airport taxes in Indonesia must be paid before checking-in. With no cash (thank you diving!), unactivated credit cards, we were left with one choice, and one choice only. We called Mico (who by that time had reached home and was about to take a shower) and borrowed 150k Rupiah each. I am not sure why he trusted us to pay him back when we reached Malaysia, but he lent us anyway. He is a good man. And now, everytime a friend plans a trip to Bali, Mico's number is given - we are now his unofficial, no commission Malaysian promoter!
1) Don't forget your passport - Our group of 6 was reduced to 5 due to a certain someone forgetting this very essential thing.
2) Plan your trip. Book a 'supir' before the vacation - Mico anyone?
3) Don't go diving when pregnant - a friend of mine tried it in Bali, didn't turn out well.
4) Put aside 150k Rupiah for airport tax - even if it means less fridge magnets.
Interesting to note:
Bakso Tikus (Rat) is sold here - don't know exactly how to respond to this!
For Muslims, confirm halal-ness of food with your supir. Majority of population in Bali are Hindus, food sold are a bit different than other parts of Indonesia.
