I spent a week ago in Bali thus resulting in why I did not update the blog for so long. The trip started at 11th of January and ended just yesterday, 18th of January. I went there not for the purpose to relax and have fun, but instead for studying and educational purposes (well, that is what my school calls it to be). OEP, Overseas Educational Programme, sure sounds awesome eh? So this post is dedicated to that whole week in bali and is definitely extraordinarily boring. Be advised if you think that there might be pictures you are totally wrong (I know holidays equals to loads of photo taking etc but I am exceptional).
Bali is practically associated with holiday paradise, or somewhere whereby people have fun in the beaches etc. So how can it be educational at all? Well, to be really honest, I doubt I really learnt anything else besides the characteristics and personalities of my friends. During the trip, we visited turtle conversation centre (where we learn turtle knowledge), mangrove swarm (learn about the different plants) etc. Knowledge and education is fed to us but I doubt any of us care about it anyways. There are however two main lessons, points or whatever you call them from this trip.
Water in Singapore is perfect. Tap water in Bali is yellow in colour. Oh I am comparing hotel to hotel standards. The hotel (2 different ones in Bali) all provided water with a twist. And that is it comes with a tint of yellow. How great is that! Seriously, I never ever felt so privilege and happy that Singapore has clean TRANSPARENT water. Lesson learnt: water is precious, especially in Singapore.
Food there is clean, not the flies. During the last meal (wait why does that sound so inappropriate?) which was dinner at the beach, there was great amount of flies. At first, the students around my table enthusiastically chase the flies away however after 10 to 20 minutes of tiring flinging and shooing, we all got tired. We were like “damn, shit the flies.” And with that we stop chasing the flies away. Most landed on the food for a while before flying away and others just circle the food without even touching it. Yes we ate the food and I am no exception. Now I am suffering from diarrhea. I shit till I bled. I am not kidding. Lesson learnt: flies are not welcomed. Not here in Singapore, not there in Bali, not anywhere.
The trip overall was alright. Not too tiring nor too boring. Activities were fine but mostly boring. With that I end my post dedicated to my Bali trip. P.S I am so sorry for not informing you readers (if there are any) that I would be away and gone for a long whole week. I would try my best in future to inform you people should there be any long/short term inactivity. P.P.S Getting a new 42inch full-hd tv next week. Damn I can’t wait. P.P.P.S Might be reviewing Assassin’s Creed sooner or later.
