Sep 2013, my husband & I stayed 3D/2N, and tried most of what The Bale has — beach club, spa, couple dinner, the library, off course breakfast — except the fitness (we don’t have time for that). For couple of big city hussle bustle like us, everything is excellent & we enjoy every moment of our stays.
The most important point is, The Bale does have GENEROUS SPACE for every activity, inside the room has big bath area, outside the room inside the villa they have spacious terrace for any activities you can imagine, private pool, sunbathing, daybed and lazy chair for reading-eating-drinking-or just relaxing etc with complete amenities. We also find the same generous space outside villa, in the restaurants, and especially in the Spa.
It’s such a SERENITY & solitude (in a pampered & tropical style), with a stupa/borobudur temple/arupadatu concept, with wide on entrance & ground level then stepping up to our room on upper level, quite a walk every time but It likely as a kind of pilgrimage. Entering our villa room we can hear soft traditional Balinese instrument.
The breakfast, the couple dinner, they have healthy & hearty choices, in line with the healthy mind-body-soul rejuvenating concept.
The beach club at in front beach, Geger beach, is clean Sandy beach with blue sea blue sky, serene & relaxing, but you can also get sporty with some watersport e.g. canoeing, wind sailing.
The Bale strong concept, thoughtful sincere SERVICES from the team & facilities does rejuvenate & relax us ~ mind, body & soul. Always inspiring, and I am looking forward to return.

Decluttering is one of my emotional catharsis.
Especially for particular days when i think:
1. I fail on several things.
2. I’m not very productive.
3. I don’t reach my goals.
4. Things don’t work as what I think they supposed to be.
5. I have very high emotional fluctuations/emotional need to be released, or bad mood.
I feel completing something after decluttering and counting how many things I have uncluttered. But most of all, I am pleased and more peaceful to see more open space at home, in rooms, inside cupboards, on the tables. It is likely the emotional burden in my heart thrown far away, with the things I release in decluttering.
Yes, i always feel i have more space in my heart, calmer and peaceful with my mind too, that I have accomplished good things in that particular day.
My utmost and first inspiration of decluttering, simplicity, and more and more organizing smartly are my 2 boys, both toddlers. Living with them, you know what I mean.

Hope you have a great weekend!
I say ‘If you are to come, just come closer & linger me, I can’t resist seeing you just with my eyes range from far’; coz he is just the fullest fun & warmth. He sways me always with his fresh fancy fragrance.
A sip of Earl Grey will make all the way.
His smell always awakens my smile. He is my Earl, Earl Grey.
My cup of tea & I.
Me time with my Earl, Earl Grey.
Drink your tea slowly & reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves — slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future. Live the actual moment. ~Thich Nhat Hanh (from zenhabits.net)
Today (30-12-2013) is the 1st day without screaming out loud to my 1st toddler.
I’m bad tempered mother, everyday easily provoked to be emotional, angry, scream out often, n spank my 1st, 3 years.
He is often reluctant to play with his peers, shy to others, maybe he isn’t confident & afraid. He may learn to be close to somebody cud experience lot/often bad treatments, coz with his own mother, the closest person available most time in his life, he experiences bad treatments often.
I have hurt my 1st toddler’s emotional & mental a lot by my daily bad temper. He may be afraid to be close to any other people outside his family.
My 1st may also assume he cud behave anything he wants to others — learning from my treatments to him — to be emotional anytime, no need to pay attention to other people’s feeling & common order in any environments.
This morning (30-12-2013) I wake up feeling bad — it’s too much a long time I just realize the bad daily situation & the very destructive effects I have made — disappointed to myself coz yesterday I scream out loud a lot too much to my 1st, just 3 years.
Learn to be patient n creative how to handle n direct children in a quiet spirit.
I want to be an ordinary mother, just a small unnoticed people,who has heart & treats my children well, so they can grow normal mentally & physically, my only hope for 2014.
I will learn to be patient & creative how to handle & direct children, in a quiet spirit.
First by everyday no scream out loud, no spank, for a month (Jan 2014). I hope a month will be time enough time for me to form this positive habit for so long.
I made it.
Confessions 1-1-2014: 1x scream loud, 1x spank for cranky & stubborness.
Confessions 2-1-2014: 1x scream loud for long loud cranky crying.

Udah lama ngga dengar musik live berdentam-dentam,
bikin ku hanyut tenggelam,
seperti masa yg silam,
meski malam semakin kelam,
ku balik muda di hangat temaram.
