Tukang Roti Pikulan


In the mornings, I usually will bump into this man who sells breads with a carrying pole. I can't imagine how much weight that he has to carry it  on his shoulder every day but for sure, it is quite heavy.

He is not only selling bread loaf and breads with filling (chocolate, coconut, peanut jam, cheese) but also some doughnuts.

A bread costed only Rp. 2.000 (14 cents USD).
It's tasted more like the old school homemade bread.

Tukang Kue Rangi (Sago cake)


I was passing this small alley on my way home and saw this man selling Kue Rangi. I seldom see this Kue Rangi seller so I couldn't resist to buy it.


Kue Rangi is made from tapioca starch or sago starch mixed with grated coconut.


Drizzled with brown sugar on the top.

It's crunchy but also chewy. Better to be eaten while it's warm because it becomes hard when it's cold.

Crispy Duck at Santi Mandala, Bali

On the 2nd day in Bali, my colleagues and I had dinner at Santi Mandala Villa & Spa in Sukawati - Gianyar area.


The view from the restaurant to the little river.

I am not so sure whether Santi Mandala is famous for their Crispy Duck but for sure, the tour agency  that we were using, had ordered this menu for our dinner. I have no idea about the price because it's a special package menu.

Crispy Duck
It's delicious! The duck was crispy on the outside but tender in the inside.

For those who don't want or like to eat then they can order Fried Chicken.

Condiments:
White rice, 3 types of Balinese chili sauce, fried soy bean cake, tropical fruits.

Balinese Soup
Savory  with some spices.
