Another day in Kuta

Friends are always asking me about my life in Kuta, there is so much that I see every day that I just take for granted, things that might seem a little bizarre to anyone else, but for me are just part of the daily scenery. So here is a glimpse into my world.

Lucky dog comes to the beach for sunset



At first I think that there is just a whole pile of rubbish on the beach but when I look closer I see that they are offerings to the spirits with coconuts, fruit, flowers and symbols woven out of banana and palm leaves




Lucky gets very lucky because there are also offerings of roast duck, a Balinese   delicacy, but Lucky has no respect for the spirits and has soon devoured a whole roast duck.

Taking a trip……

magic mushrooms are legal in Indonesia  and  you can take a trip while you get your laundry done.

 Or perhaps while you are waiting to get a new suit made

But you don’t need mushrooms to see Ronald surf

Or to spot a dancing orangutan in the middle of a drum circle

And check out the dancers doing the sexy nurse thing while you wait for your deli combo meal

If you need petrol for your motorbike just look for the vodka bottles

And what about those spiky helmets, I guess they are for people who choose fashion over safety LOL

Then there is breast waxing (ouch!) or the mysterious Ratus V / vagina, apparently that means Vaginal smoking!

Bad haircut? Guess thats a case of ‘funk q’ very much

Personally I was all for the  72 hour beach party.

And taking the notion of a pool party to a whole new level (Yes Nadine and I are sitting in the pool – it was a bit cold actually!)

And where else in the world would you find that someone has hung decorative symbols all over your bike to protect you from evil spirits

Or see Santa in a Hindu Parade, perhaps that’s what you call religious fusion

And while I am on the subject of religion it seems that the Buddha might be about

Or should I say Buddhas!

When I went to Divine Wonderland for a restaurant review I seem to have shrunk

And yep that’s Boy George. Hes out of prison and played at a beach party for my birthday (well on my birthday) He was such a diva!

And i guess I was a bit of a diva too (well it was my birthday!!!) and no it wasn’t a wet t-shirt competition, it just rained really hard

And that’s my sister Sarah, she does a great diva too. Love her to bits xxxx

Ok, so Lucky dog wasn’t at the party, but she’s the biggest diva of all  !!!!!

I am wondering if this is a case of fatism…. Swim between the flags?

It seems that only skinny people can swim on Kuta beach


Big Sunglasses are all the rage

people just refuse to act their age…….

And dogs are always a girl’s best friend (and are much nicer than diamonds)

Little Boys and Little Girls never see eye to eye

People insist on making a statement with their clothes

But this hoodie I spied a girl wearing on Kuta beach has to be my favourite. ‘No right man at the party’ – I know that one, and I can relate to ‘ I love naked’ , but ‘ I love flea ‘ ????

Food critics  tend to overeat…… It’s what you call an occupational hazard


And there is also the danger of over drinking…. That’s vodka with a shot of chocolate – a dangerously delicious combination

Ice Bar in Bali? Yes there is, with a crystal dance floor

I might have really overdone it this time!!!!

Writing about food and drinks is a hard job, but somebody has to do it!
