Bali high...

Went and back... too fast, too short... that's how i would describe our Bali trip.
Last went to Bali about 6 years ago, so much has changed. Very commercialise now. Especially Ubud and Seminyak area. Prefer the old Bali. Traffic is pretty ridiculous too. Kinda like a mini Jakarta now.
Best thing we did was to hire a driver to drive us around. (pleasant guy name Putu). With JW in tow it was not easy but we survived, even managed to squeeze in a few art galleries and hotel hopping.
Went to see UMA in Ubud and UMA Sapna in Seminyak. Visited Kendra Gallery Gaya Gallery and BIASA artspace. We even managed to see a Chagall and Gauguin
Wished we covered more. But hey it was supposed to be a relaxing holiday. And relaxed we did.
Stayed at Alila Villas Uluwatu. Beautiful Site, well designed hotel but unfortunately service was not as we expected from an Alila hotel...
All in all, a good break and a well deserved holiday. I think JW enjoyed it the most.

Tuesday Picks...

Dezeen talks  talks to Ilse Crawford about her studio in London and her work as an interior designer
Watch the video

Inside awards: Ilse Crawford from Dezeen on Vimeo.

I like how she decribes that interior is the life of the building and how interior is all about building a world...
how true...
