Just on Bali though and its certainly an eye opening sort of place.

 

Every man and his dog over there has a bike or scooter, and the record we saw was 5, on the one scooter. Mum, Dad, and 3 little ones, with nary a helmet in sight.

 

We also saw a guy go past with two toilet bowls strapped on back of his scooter, and one guy had the end of a length of 4 x 8 plywood tucked under his arse, with the rest of it hanging out the back. :)

It was certainly a fun place though with everyone having a laid back approach to life in general.

 

The Beloved and I spent our last evening in Bali sipping screwdrivers for a few hours in a bar in Seminyak, while a ladyboy caberet show was in full swing. Funny thing was, they looked much better than they sung. :)

You're right .. I wasn't that confident about the place given all the dromana's of recent years.

 

It was fun though, and while I enjoyed it, its probably not somewhere I'd journey to again (unlike some who go back time and time again).

 

I figure there are more places that I haven't seen yet, that I'd rather go to .... :)

You do make a good point Micky ..... but there were of course the other extremes of Bali.

 

Nearby roosters surrounding the Villa who could not tell the time for love nor money, starting their persistent morning calls at about 4:30am each day, and not desisting until about 6 pm at night.

 

The ongoing dangers of the traffic ..... when the roads get too busy, the scooters and bikes decide to take to the footpaths, quite hair raising for the unsuspecting pedestrian quietly going about their business.

 

The feral monkeys at Ulawatu Temple who have a love for designer sunglasses (we saw several tourists stripped of them).

 

The 99% humidity of climbing up and down the 400 foot rice terraces in central Ubud.

 

Rats the size of small dogs scurrying around openly in places (right next door to Shapelle's place in Kerobokan)

 

And I used the term "dog" advisedly in Bali ....... As we never came across what you'd call a pure bred dog at all.

 

Most were just free to roam the streets in search of food, and were either a short legged, Dachshund type, with a head like a Labrador, or they looked like some sort of dingo that had been crossed with a hyena. Either way, a few of them were quite nasty, both in appearance, and in behaviour. :)

 

Oh, one of the other incongruous things during our trip, was a sunset dinner we had on the beach. As we reclined on beanbags enjoying our evening repast, the ever present hawkers were moving in about the tourists offering their cheap and nasty crafts.

 

All the places along the beach have live entertainment, so as we sat there, we were entertained by a trio of Balinese guys up on a makeshift stage, with guitars and drums ...... as they played and sang the Amy Winehouse song "Valerie".

 

That pretty much summed up the Bali experience for me I reckon ......... it was quite surreal at times. :D

Update time from some recent golfing up at Beacy.

 

Saturday Par Comp ....... even at the halfway mark, and -1 at the end of it all. Not too bad given the local conditions.

 

Sunday Stableford Comp ...... 18 at the halfway mark, and another 21 on the back half for 39, which won the comp. The memorable thing from the round, the driver was on song, accuracy wise, and I hit every fairway except the 1st (only just missed it).

 

Tuesday Stableford Comp ..... 14 points at the halfway mark, and another 15 on the back half for 29 in total. The driver was slightly astray, so I went the 3W and 3 iron a few times off the tee, given I was pretty much in practice mode.

Sat comp - 32 points in some tough and wet conditions. Played both halves with a few errors, and had to chip a couple of times across wet greens, as there was nowhere to move the ball which was already sitting on the green, that had a clear path to the hole..

 

Sunday golf - Freezing cold at the crack of dawn today, but not bad conditions ...... 36 points and won the comp. 

 

3 bogeys on each 9, and the other 12 holes solid pars.

 

I did have an interesting tee shot on the 1st however. I smote a drive that was right out of the sweet spot, and the ball only went about 150 metres doing some weird corkscrew like curves thru the air as it flew. I got to the ball only to find a bloody great split right through the middle of the Callaway Supersoft. I did mention the ball splitting at the pro shop, and the ball is now going to be sent back to Callaway for investigation. In the meantime they gave me a new one to replace it.

 

So, my last two Sunday starts have resulted in 2 comp wins, with nary a move on my handicap (courtesy of some low scores dropping out) ..... :)
