Other than fabric shopping, I also did these in Indonesia
Family time..a ton of it. It was like catching up for Christmas, New Year, and Chinese New Year that I haven’t spent with them. The three of us, my brother, sister and myself, do not live in the same city. It’s always a challenge to get everybody together at the same time. It’s a miracle that we did it this time. I love spending time with them especially with my three little nephews and niece
Attending my best friend’s wedding in Phalosa resort, Seminyak in Bali. It was such a beautiful wedding overlooking Indian Ocean. Bali has become one of the most popular spots for destination wedding.
Visiting the ancient more-than-thousand-year-old Buddhist Temple, Borobudur, in Central Java. This site is definitely under-rated compared to the Angkor Wat in Cambodia.
Nearby, there’s another ancient Hindu temple called Prambanan. During full month, you can watch Ramayana Ballet performance. A lot of people are surprised that Javanese culture is very much like Indian culture. In fact, the Indian merchant helped spread Hinduism and Buddhism long before Indonesia is a muslim country. Like our Indian friends, we also love the Ramayana tale of Rama and Sinta (sort of like Romeo and Juliet)
I am halfway done with Rusted Roots. Remember how I was telling you that I was going to knit Bazan? Well, I was so busy at work a few days before I left and didn’t have a chance to get the right yarn. Instead, I bought Rusted Roots pattern online and used yarn from my stash.
And that my friend, is what I called vacation 🙂
