Fearless Photographers Conference Bali 2014

I jumped excitedly and told Hui Hui, "we're going to Bali in August". Booked our flight ticket, accommodation in Bali and a seat at Fearless Conference once the date for the conference was announced.

My philosophy for photography has always been having fun & capturing moments and pushing hard to be a better photographer. Self improvement was necessary thus I enrolled. Frankly, the conference was one of the best I did for myself and what I learned was invaluable.

Pandawa Beach - Uluwatu - Kuta


We were reluctant to leave Ubud for our next few days stay in Kuta. But because of Fearless Photographers Conference am so excited about it that I didn't really think too much of leaving Ubud for Kuta.

From Kuta, we went to Pandawa Beach, not knowing of this place and didn't expect much at first. Its turn out that we love this beach more than Kuta. Love the cliff too.. so contrasty against the sky. Its was a bliss spending time here on the beach people watching. Its weird that I been treated like local. Maybe its a good sign. hahahaha... from Pandawa Beach, we headed to Uluwatu. Just in time before the Kecak dance started. As we didn't get to watch the Kecak dance last year, we promise our-self to comeback. We got entrance ticket and got to our seat directly so don't have time to take pictures of Uluwatu. I did take few last year :) The Kecak dance was enjoyable.

Ubud - Street - Culture - Paddy Field

Ubud -  Last year we visited Ubud and just fell in love with this place. This year, we come back again and staying longer just so we can do bit of exploration. Checking in at Bliss Spa & Bungalow, this place were surrounded by paddy field. So peaceful...

We rented motorbike and ride around. Its was fun to do since I haven't ride a motorbike for more than 10 years. The food & culture were fascinating. At one point when we were at Ubud Market, we just people watching. Glad to finally tasted Naughty Nuri's Warung BBQ ribs, amazing how it taste.

From Ubud, we visited Teras Tegalalang & Kintamani again, yet again the paddy has been harvested. Venturing down the field was great experience but beware to be asked for donation.  Next trip will go to Kintamani early for the sunrise.

Barong dance was interesting to watch, the music tune were equally awesome to hear. From there we went to Kuta as mm attending Fearless Photographers Bali.
