Baby Dylan visiting Tanah Lot @ Bali - Day 2

Day 2 ... visiting the famous tourist site - Tanah Lot

  • Since it will be a super long post for my Day 2, decided to do seperate post for my Day. As part of my Day 2 itenary, we went to visit Tanah Lot back again. This time with Dylan and my parents in law.
  • Just for your information, Tanah Lot is a rock formation off the Indonesian island of Bali.
  • Note: All Tanah Lot pics taken with my DSLR camera ... no Olympus u1030! Enjoy the pics and captions.

It is home of a pilgrimage temple, the Pura Tanah Lot (literally "Tanah Lot temple") and a popular tourist and cultural icon for photography and general exoticism.


Without baby stroller is difficult to shop and take pictures ... Dylan enjoying being carried most of the day. The dad sometimes need to take pics with a single hand while carrying Dylan on the other hand.



It was a super hot day ... Yve and Dylan posing for the picture ... Dylan not smiling cause he is sweating a lot ... look at his wet hair.


Fake smile by Dylan ...


Better take a rest and enjoy the view and the wind at the hill side.


Dylan says "Mommy, very hot leh ... why bring me to this place"


Having coconuts to chill down ourself ... Dylan also enjoy drinking the sweet coconut water.


For self pleasure, lots of sizes available ... I thought is a holy place and they can sell this wood dildos.


Some ritual prayers ceremony held at Tanah Lot ...


Entrance to the Holy temple but was stopped half way and kicked out ... not tourist area.




A glimpse of the prayers area ...


HDR effect to the max ... during high tide, not able to walk across to the temple.


The Tanah Lot temple was built and has been a part of Balinese mythology for centuries. The temple is one of seven sea temples around the Balinese coast. Each of the sea temples were established within eyesight of the next to form a chain along the south-western coast. At the base of the rocky island, poisonous sea snakes are believed to guard the temple from evil spirits and intruders.


Another view of the Tanah Lot area ... strong wind and nice to hear the wave splashing sound.


Another famous photography site ...


This is a must place to visit if you are coming to visit Bali ...

  • I got some minor sun burn from here due to the scorching sun ...
  • Tips: You can buy your souvenir here, very cheap and reasonable price when u walk along the street before reaching the Tanah Lot. Don't buy from inside Tanah Lot. One coconut cost u 20k rupiah while outside only selling at 10k rupiah.

My Bali Adventure with Baby Dylan - Day 1

I am back ... Here goes my Bali Holiday trip for Day 1 @ Sanur
  • Note: Thanks for the comments and I will reply back tomorrow as my home internet here very very slow.
  • Finally, I am safely arrived home from my Bali trip. Ok, will put less words and more pictures for you all to view.
  • This is a very exciting trip because I am not fully aware of the itenary as settled by Yve ... secondly, forgotten to bring important thing which is Dylan's baby stroller ... so we gotta to carry him around with the baby carrier. We even don't know what time is our departure time from Denpasar to KL.

Most Wanted Boy ... Dylan Tay


This baby carrier is very useful at first since we forgotten the most important stuff other than passport which is Dylan's baby stroller. Because of Dylan's weight causes both of our shoulders pain, we give up and rather carry him with our hands ...



The breakfast we had - Nasi Lemak at Asian Cafe, KLIA ...


Honk Honk .... want a ride? Dylan showing his one hand manouever ... got potential become F1 driver as the daddy love to watch F1.


Dylan sense that he is going somewhere ... the night before the trip, he can't sleep at all and keep on talk and talk in his baby language ... he is too excited and happy


Finally, our plane arrived at KLIA ...


My air-flight meal .... Curry Chicken with Briyani Rice ... love eating the Ferrero Roche while drinking Whisky Coke ....


Colorful seats in Boeing 737 .... lots of mat salleh ...


Dylan with his seat ... thank God he did not cry and instead he talk and talk only ...


Dylan says ... Daddy, I think I got air sick and dizzy now ... better I take a nap ... wake me up when arrived.


Father in law bought some local beers and guiness stout to drink ... I bought the F&N Coffee Soda ... taste like real coffee but got carbonate gas ...


Dylan can't wait to swim and so we brought him for swimming ...


Bedtime story before putting Dylan to sleep ... carrying his luggages is not easy ... need to packed his toys, books, pampers, swimming float, foods, cutleries and etc ... really not easy to bring baby for holiday ...


Finally I have the time to snap pics at night with my DSLR while Dylan is sleeping ... here is part of the pool view in night scene ...


My resort room ... nice and peaceful ...


I love this shot very much @ the entrance to the swimming pool ... long exposure in M mode.


Before Dylan woke up ... took some day light shots at the swimming pool ...


We stayed for our first night in this Puri Sading Hotel, Sanur ...


Outside the room ... took the coffee table with natural sun lights ...


I like the cotton clouds ... took a picture of it in the resort ...


I love this traditional roof end ...


Took some close up shots of the flowers in the resort ...




Sharp thorns ...


Forgotten this flower call what already ... u can find this flower in every resorts in Bali ...


Waterlily ...


Another shot ...


Walking to the Sanur Beach ... 5 mins walk only ...


Hot morning sun ... Yve and Dylan enjoying the sea breeze and the spectacular view ...


The volcano mountain view ... just amazing and splendid view ... no wonder many mat salleh love to sun bathing at here ...
  • Wondering how come no food pics ... will post it seperately to make u drool ...
  • Here is how is my first day in Bali @ Sanur ... heading to Ubud in the next day.

New Straits Times - Berjaya University College of Hospitality

Why my face not appear in NST paper ... hehehe
  • Note: This is a scheduled post. I am away for holiday @ Bali ... sucking coconut water now.
  • The event I wrote (click here to read) was published in NST paper ... cool but too bad my picture is not in there ... next time must ask the journalist to purposely snap me in the picture ...
  • My friend who reads my bloggie and saw this familiar post in the newspaper and show it to me ...

  • This is my first actual live cooking class I have attended and I love it so much ... cooking with celebrity Chef Tamara was truly amazing and really learn a lot and from the students too.

  • I really miss the food especially the Creamy Pumpkin Soup with Tangarine juice and Coriander ... gosh, the taste is still resided in my mind and taste bud.

  • If your children love cooking, this is an ideal University College to send your kids there ... I might send baby Dylan to here if he likes cooking and wanna become a Chef!
