When in Bali, Beach Clubs are a must to go! One of the first beach clubs I went to was called Cocoon Restaurant, Bar, Beach Club. When you walk into the restaurant the whole atmosphere was just relaxing as the interior was simple and clean. We took our seats near the side which you can see in the second picture below.

Once we settled into our seats we were given the menu and we took our time deciding what we wanted but since we got here quite early around 10:30am (local Bali time) we were not all too hungry so we just got cocktails instead. Just a heads up alcohol in Bali is not cheap it's probably around the same price as Australia but nevertheless we were on holiday's so we were willing to spend!

I ordered their Toblerone cocktail which had the perfect mix of  amaretto, frangelico, kahlua, baileys, blended with cream, honey & chocolate. Pretty much any cocktails with baileys I'm sold! It was smoothie-like which made it enjoyable to drink and it wasn't too strong. This cocktail cost Rp.120(AUD$11.50).

HappyLingFish loves her Pina Colada so she got the Cocoon Colada, it was very light and refreshing compared to my stronger milker cocktail and it cost Rp.110(AUD$10.50)

I also got a little refreshing treat for myself, the Cocoon Snow Egg Tribute, a crispy meringue outer, palm sugar and turmeric ice-cream center, shaved 'salak fruit, hazelnut, candlenut, tangerine sorbet, coconut emulsion and edible orange flowers.The dessert was extremely sweet so those with a huge sweet tooth this is for you! The sorbet tasted a bit minty and the combination of nuts gave it that extra texture and flavor. This refreshing treat cost Rp.75(AUD$7.05).

It was such a enjoyable and relaxing experience and our personal staff Tana made this all happen and he was also the one to tell us what was in the Snow Egg. Including all the service and tax the total of our bill came to Rp.358,985(AUD$34).

After paying the bill, Tana (in the photo above) told us that we should take photo's near the poolside and that's when we realized we could use the day beds there if we spend more than Rp.350(AUD$32). Ling and I took full advantage of this and stripped into our swimmers to enjoy the breeze, sun and pool! They even played good old RnB music too!

This was during day 2 and I already felt I was in paradise here at Cocoon! It really takes your worries away and makes sure you fully enjoy the whole relaxing experience here. We stayed at the poolside until lunch time as we headed to our next foodie destination. Below are just a few snaps of our day by the pool and getting that sun-kissed skin!

Just looking at these photo's makes me feel like I was in Bali right now and that I should keep up my fitness routine again! I was close to obtaining abs last summer but gave in to the holiday mode haha~

According to a report by the Australian Financial Review, Sephora will introduce brands ever month for the first 12 months of business, stocking up to more than 200 brands. While we patiently wait for the store to open prices as Mecca have already dropped their prices and soon David Jones and Myers will also consider price drops across the cosmetic ranges. Nevertheless there goes all my money once Sephora opens.

Finally getting up my food reviews from my Bali trip earlier this year in summer! I apologize that it took so long but just in time for you guys to plan your eats if you're heading to Bali this summer!

Poppies Restaurant was the first meal in Bali that we had after we got off our flight and since we were staying in Kuta the closest one was located on Jalan Popies I (Popies I St, one of their main streets and is quite narrow so you will be to sharing it with the motor bikes and all. As you can see all the Balinese people are super excited too!We had booked the restaurant in advanced before we left Sydney so that we could get a table just in case it was super busy~

Anyways so we walk through the entrance and the whole restaurant is located outdoors which was quite relaxing with all the greenery and pond to look at and there is no more honking taxi! As night drew closer the breeze started to cool us down from the heat.

We were taken to our seat and instantly seeing that they had free wifi I asked for the password to get connected with friends, family and of course my blog page!

While we were deciding what to eat both HappyLingFish and I ordered a bottle of their local beer, BinTang. It was super refreshing on this humid hot day and YES! we are both over the legal age to drink, just in case if you were wondering.

Once we knew what we wanted, we ordered the food and it came swiftly! Boy was I looking forward to eating authentic Balinese food! Indonesian food is one of my favorite cuisine as my lovely caretakers were Indonesian so I have been exposed to it since I was a baby.

First off, we got their Nasi Campur,steamed rice with a daily selection of tasty accompaniments such as chicken, beef, shrimps, bean curd and vegetables, cooked in Balinese spices and herbs.
This dish was Rp.67,000 once converted it is about AUD$6.30 (they usually just leave out the three zero's at the end to make it easier for themselves). It was incredibly delicious! All the spices and flavors were just amazing that it made my taste buds crave for more!

The next dish we ordered was their Chicken Satéserved over hot embers at your table with a delicious peanut sauce and steamed rice. The peanut sauce was filled with peanutty bits and it tasted so good by itself! This dish cost Rp.59 so roughly AUD$5.50.

I was down for dessert so I got their Black Rice Pudding, a delicious local dish, sweetened with palm sugar and served with coconut milk and banana's. During my entire trip in Bali, this was the best dessert I had! I loved how simple yet tasty this was and it was Rp.33 (AUD$3)!!! Incredibly CHEAP!!!!

The portions of the food were generous and the taste was AMAZING, I'm salivating as I typed this up and to top it off we only spent a total of just under AUD$20 (Rp.159,000 + 15% tax/service)!!! Super affordable and delicious what more could you ask for your first meal in Bali! If you think about it you'd probably be only be able to get one dish from a brunch menu in Australia~ The whole restaurant atmosphere had changed once night time arrived and you can see the different feel with the night time view of the bar photo below.
