You wouldn't believe it but i have another bike story. Got up early to surf Keramas with Lee and Mubles again on Friday. By time we got there i was feeling pretty rough, little bit of a cold coming on or something. Played with the cutest puppy in the Warung then went for another surf which involved me not doing much again. Then on the way home Lee made a comment about me actually being able to drive the bike now, 5minutes after this i reached the only place on the journey back to Kuta that involves a left and a right turn. I went right. Kuta was left. I didn't really realise i was going the wrong way tho. I ended up in Kota and Denpasar- THE WORST TRAFFIC I HAVE EVER EVER SEEN! it was literally just gridlock and thousands of bikes. This was all in the midday sun. I had no idea where i was going and had to keep asking people on the side of the road which way to kuta. I drove past something like 5 school and millions of kids were just pouring out of them on bikes. I managed to find a sign for Kuta and just kept following until i got to the outskirts, at thsi point i was very hot, very sweaty and very traumatised by the whoel thing. I then got completely stuck on the putskirts of Kuta on the longest road and just could nto get into the centre. I had a bit of an emptional breakdown on the side of the road then soem indo guy came over and helped me get to the beach. Finally i made it back to Kuta. It took my 3HOURS instead of 40minutes. Nightmare!
That night the all the boys apart form Chris and Mark decided they wern't guna go out so i wasn't planning on it either but somehow i got persuaded in to coming out for 'one drink at apache' which turned into 2 glasses of rum at Chris's, a jungle juice between 3 of us at Twice and then probably 8 Araks and half of Chris's beer and all i spent was 25,000. Was a brilliant night though. Apache has a reggae bar at the back and there was a sweet band on playing Bob Marley all night.
more to come.........
Ok so Saturday we surfed Green Bowls, which was beautiful, with Joel, Dan, Chris and Mark. You oark at the top of the clif and get perfect view of the sea, all turquoise and shimmering! You walk through a little jungle path and hundreds of steps to get down, there where monkeys everywhere, much nicer seeing tem here than at Monkey Beach in phi phi. The walk down was fun, the walk back up however nearly killed me for sure. It was good surfing somewhere different for a change and we stayed in the water for about 2 1/2 hours but about 2 of them for me was spent paddling through the consistent headhigh sets to get back out back. I got nailed on the drop on a few waves. Was good to feel like i got some decent excercise tho. Definately want to surf there again. Tour guide Chris showed us this bat cave with thousands of bats hanging and flying around. After the monsterous walk back to the top i got a pocari sweat and watched the monkeys. Then a local woman pointed at my belly and said 'Pregnant?', i asked her again, thinking i'd misherd her...... 'pregnant?" i was like NO!! Chris was sat next to me and could not contain himself and was in hysterics ,then immediately went and told the boys who were then all joining him in hysterics! They have been takign the piss out of my ever since and my new nickname has gone from 'sea cow' to 'preggers'. Not fun when they keeping telling random people in the bar i'm pregnant! One night at Joes Place , Mumbles thought it would be hilarious to take the mic off Joel when there was a gap in the music and shout can we just give a congraulations to candy over here whos pregnant!The worst thing is i've definately lost weight since i've been away.
That night was another night out on the town which was epic, definately the best night in Bali and probably the best night i've had so far. We startedoff in Alley Ctas obviously, picked up 2 sweedish girls who were pretty funny. Then mumbles said he was flexible and could touc his toes. When he tried this mammot task he fell backwards off his chair which brought everthing to a silence. We nearly got thrown out by the landlord because he thought somethign was going to kick off. Then to Twice bar for some jungle juice....eeerrrrrrrrrr........lots of jungle juice.....a stupid amount of jungle juice. Mumbles was talking to a girl we met from Newquay while at this time all the boys were surrounding them with their pants down. Hilarious! Got some great photo of this. Then to Joes bar for singing and dancing. he boys petty much had the stage to them selves all night while the band played along to their singing. I was in my own world then, playing tambourine which was too much fun for me! Some japanese woman told m she loved me and i reminded her of her sister when we left. Mbargo was dead so to BOunty we went. On the way Chris actually sold me to an Indo guy for Rp1,000 thats around 5p to me and you. I stormed off for abotu 20seconds at which point i was having to much fun to stay angry so i gave p the strom and went back to bounty with the boys. Lost everyone apart from Chris, so there we were drinking slush syle arak drinks on bounty dancefloor. We stayed until the lights came on at 4am and then i left Chris with a German girl (after he paid for my Bounty cheeseburger... ). I stopped at Circle K on the way home as i wanted somethign else to eat (maybe this is why i look pregnant?) and only had 5,000 left for soem raisan pie biscuits, lucly there was 2 guys in the sop who gave me 1.000 extra for them. So here i was stood outside circle k with 2 random (australian i think) eating raisan pie which turnedinto spitting pastry over each other in hysterics. Then Chris rocked up on his own and we went to the internet cafe at like 5:30 or somethign stupid, i proceeded to fall asleep on the keyboard. Then went back to Suka inn where Chris's roommate was with a girl so Chris came p and had my spare bed. Mumbles wa son the balcony when we got back and then the sun came up. All-nighter acomplished! yeeeewwwwww!
Sunday was a rest day and involved breakfast at Alley cats and some pool lounging.
Monday.....we went otu again! Mumbles penultimate night which would turn out to give em teh worst hanover EVER. By time i got to Joes place i was definately too drubk to carry on so hoem i went. I did find out that Chris completely ruined things for Mumbles and Newquay girl Charlotte and almost got punched by Dan ( who was also out of his mind drunk)
Tuesday i was sooooo hungover but till managed to prie myself to Discovery where i bought a bright pink watch and then to poppies 2 for some more cheap stuff! That night we ate at Mojos Burritos again which was soooo good but then someone suggested we go out AGAIN!! are you havin a laugh thats 4 nights in 5 days eeeerrrrrrrrr!!! Double doubles tasted worse than ever but we battled on through...the best chpice was skipping jungle juice at twice...i defo couldnt handle anymore of that. Then to Joes for soem Lowry cocktails, i was pretty shattered at this point but still went to apache for arrak....yuk!....and still ended up in Bounty with Chris again. Chris had picked up ahorse girl so i went and danced on the stage with some bintang aussies then i left at around 3:30am for mymuch needed bed!
Wednesday...Mumbles and Lee left.....sad times! Me and Dan went to the beach for abit and then i did some more market shooping then chilled out for the rest of the day. Mark took us to a restaurant where we ate by cnadle light because the there was ANOTHER powercut! I put my board in for its spray job.
Next to the Gilis for 2 days of boy free bliss.....
