A gala dinner to remember #LDfindsSeoul #LDfinds #LilyDawis . . . Masters tend to work diligently, efficiently with minimal "noise." When the time is ripe, the works speak volumes for them and echo through corridors of memories. Kuho Jung is one such master, so privileged to finally meet him. . . #ParadiseArtSpace #arts #installationarts #performancearts #artgallery #museum #InauguralExhibition #jungkuho #galadinner #ParadiseCityKorea
I was immediately captivated. Breathless with anticipation as soon as the procession of perfectly spaced performers entered the ballroom. The space purposely lit with patterned precision from pitched black moments before, elegantly and effectively commanding and holding our attention from dinner chatters. Thoroughly enchanted @jung_kuho for @pcitykorea πŸ™. . . Masters tend to work diligently, efficiently with minimal "noise."

"All of Sudden, Drawing the Space" @kimhodeuk 2018 . . The air around the arts space was charged, full of excitement as we milled about after the historic unveiling moment minutes earlier. Chatters echoed, clickety clacks of shoes and heels buzzed about. Then we entered Kim Hodeouk's space and silence was immediate it was deafening and heartfelt. Respect earned and I, so drawn by the space, was feeling suddenly solemn. #LDfindsSeoul #LDfinds #LilyDawis . . "At Paradise Art Space, your senses just somehow become more alive. It simply must be experienced, this transforming feeling..." paraphrasing what I remember from @jeffkoons ' speech coz what he described, truly was what I felt. . . The sheer space and superbly brand new, commissioned masterpieces @jeffkoons @damienhirst , breathtaking. Lee Bae's, Kim Hodeuk's commanding "non presence" of color, sound, space, water and time, transcending.

Well made salmon, duck, salad, pasta... No need to fret, everything that made it to the menu was great. #LDfindsJtown #LDfinds #LilyDawis . . . "Union Made is Well Made" indeed. (3/3) We ordered a lot for dinner of 4 pax plus takeways and absolutely everything from the kitchen/bakery was on point. Loving the many choices, Western as well as Indo fusion delights. . . Kudos to tasteful decor and great service too. A new classic from Union Group has arrived. . . #uniongroup #anakjajan #jktfood #Jakarta #Indonesia #jajanan

I dig sky lights, you? #LDfindsBali #LDfinds #LilyDawis . . . I know am lucky that I get to frequent Bali for decades and never got bored. Always manage to find something new. This shopping area is not brand new but I find myself liking it as I have yet another option to spend half a day or so indoors in fickle weathered days. I like aircon too and not afraid to admit it πŸ˜‹ Also, good parking when visiting Sisterfields 😁 #Seminyak #SeminyakVillage #indoorshopping #indtravel #WonderfulIndonesia #Bali
Decadent, healthy, as we wish...Gotta love Bali for its wide all day breakfast options. #LDfindsBali #LDfinds #LilyDawis . . . Bali knew long long time ago before all day breakfasts are de rigueur everywhere else, that it gotta be breakfast sometime somewhere. For frequent travelers like us who sometimes wake up slightly disoriented a day after very long flights, huge options on how we want to start our day is always appreciated πŸ˜‰πŸŽΆ One of the must go place, in Bali is Sisterfields.

I believe in work smart play smart spa smart, you? #LDfindsHK #LDfinds #LilyDawis . . . When traveling for business, I can't sight see, my days would be from meeting to meeting, mostly in board rooms but sometimes highlighted by trips to awesome dining spots. To stay sharp and in good mood, taking a break after back to back meetings becomes important too and this hotel's spa is beyond rejuvenating, with bonus killer views. If during your stay, you can't snag a last minute appointment, I'd still recommend use of the superb indoor aquatonic pool (no πŸ“· allowed) and steams. So relaxing! . . Indeed, my other fave hotel is Four Seasons Hotel, Hong Kong. Location's excellent, I got to schedule meetings productively. Then even during odd hours I could use the massive gym accompanied by amazing views. The views so amazing, even and maybe especially from the room, that I actually forgot to take proper pics of the room despite staying for days πŸ˜… (1st vid, strangely mesmerizing ships' movements hypnotized me). #FourSeasons #FourSeasonshk #fourseasonsspa #HongKong #fshongkong #wellness #stayinshape #traveltips #travelsecrets #spa

Pastry chefs must be part magicians with endless patience #LDfinds #LDfindsHK #LilyDawis . . . This fine slice must have taken forever to perfect and mad skill to cut. So, yes, some cakes are pricier than others but I will always gladly pay the asking price (although in this case my great friend J treated me πŸ€—). It is truly a treat, to just enjoy these fineries without having to make them.

Special places are not easy to get to, But once there, bliss awaits. #LDfindsBali #LDfinds #LilyDawis . . . Whoever thought of placing bean bags on the beach must be a genius. Hours just go by with such great views, weather and lovely comforts. Canggu is not easy to access, although by distance it's relatively close by to Seminyak, go car, grab etc. are still not welcomed. But am pleasantly amazed, determined travelers still found ways. Restaurants, beach clubs are generally full and the beach busy. I fell in love with Canggu and will return. . . #Beanbags #Canggu #CangguBali #HiddenTreasure #BlacksandBeach #Bali #Beachlife #Islandlife #balisunset #CangguTribe #surfersparadise #dogfriendly

But am amazed, determined travelers still found ways. Restaurants, beach clubs are generally full and the beach busy. Here I observed, Canggu is very dog friendly. Most of Bali is too but especially here. Some long time residents shared with me that wild dogs are much loved by the proprietors the dogs feel adopted and loved. Some proprietors would dress the dogs with bandanas and the dogs then travel in packs, picking up one another for walks on the beach or around their neighborhood. Am not sure if these dogs I captured here are wild but I observed them for quite a while and they did travel in a pack and seemed so at ease interacting with one another freely with no humans disturbing them, I must share these thoughts with you...

The evening's still young, The meeting wrapped. We went home. Greeted by relaxing sounds of crickets singing and sight of a unicorn floating serenely. Don't judge us, we felt compelled to sit and eat again. After all, we're on business vacation, this part, definitely vacay πŸ˜‹. #LDfindsBali #LDfinds #LilyDawis . . . We're so happy with this resort. The location's so convenient to get around Canggu areas. Most places are walking distance or a short ride away. That explains why we were so productive, no time wasted in traffic jams. Hope the broken road in front of the hotel, which takes us 2 walking minutes away to Canggu Beach, would be fixed by the local government by the time we return with our children. Aside from this minor issue, this charming resort truly deserves my ☁️☁️☁️☁️☁️ on dreaminess.

Then we had to leave just as the sun said its hello again (#7 ). Sharing some moments of serenity for you to enjoy folks... πŸ˜‰. PS: not easy to get there if you're not guests of hotel.

Japanese Dining in 300 years old temple? Especially recommended if you're in Bali 😎 #LDfindsBali #LDfinds #LilyDawis . . . F&B: ☁️☁️☁️☁️☁️ Service: ☁️☁️☁️☁️☁️ Ambiance: ☁️☁️☁️☁️☁️. . . Ji of Tugu hotel Bali is spread across 3 levels. The base is the rescued 300 yrs old temple, second level is the Ji Terrace by the Sea and then the rooftop (can't give you a glimpse coz off limits that night due to a private function). Every corner is fascinating you'd be very distracted coz you'd tend to want to capture every angle. But by the time food arrived, we forgot the place during the bites because yes, their modern Japanese food's that good. . . #jirestaurantbali #JapaneseRestaurant #CangguBali #Canggu #Bali #WonderfulIndonesia #VisitBali #restaurantreview #tuguhotels

The ramen was ok and wagyu steak was a bit overcooked, not as phenom as these featured. . . #jirestaurantbali #JapaneseRestaurant #CangguBali #Canggu #Bali #WonderfulIndonesia #VisitBali #restaurantreview #tuguhotels
Japanese Dining in 300 years old temple? Especially recommended if you're in Bali 😎 #LDfindsBali #LDfinds #LilyDawis . . . F&B: ☁️☁️☁️☁️☁️ Service: ☁️☁️☁️☁️☁️ Ambiance: ☁️☁️☁️☁️☁️. . . Ji of Tugu hotel Bali is spread across 3 levels. The base is the rescued 300 yrs old temple, second level is Ji Terrace by the Sea and then the rooftop (can't give you a glimpse coz off limits that night due to a private function). Every corner is fascinating you'd be very distracted coz you'd tend to want to capture every angle. But by the time food arrived, we forgot the place during the bites because yes, their modern Japanese food's that good. #jirestaurantbali #JapaneseRestaurant #CangguBali #Canggu #Bali #WonderfulIndonesia #VisitBali #restaurantreview #tuguhotels
Great balance of healthy decadence and well made traditional offerings #LDfindsBali #LDfinds #LilyDawis . . . Tastiest garlic prawns on top of crispy skin salmon, baramundi en papillote, tuna shake salad, luscious wagyu burger, chicken leg sous vide, chicken betutu... These signature dishes these past few meals so delish at Salt, the restaurant of the brand new Eastin Astha Resort, we were somewhat reluctant to step out of the resort to try other restaurants in the area 😝 . . F&B : ☁️☁️☁️☁️☁️ Service: ☁️☁️☁️☁️☁️ (so lovely, they offered and served the house bread piece by piece, warm!)

Tropikale, Canggu, Bali featuring coffee from Simply Brew Coffee Roastery. . . Rhum raisin affogato. Coffee served oh so right... #LDfindsBali #LDfinds #LilyDawis The place is very new and a few items still not available. We went a few days back to have the coffee already sold out by 6 pm so we came back around 1 pm yesterday and glad we made that decision. Coz, Simply Brew truly understands coffee 😎 . . F & B: ☁️☁️☁️☁️☁️ for beverage. On food I reserve my review for next time after I try a few more items, the pasta was a tad too soft for my liking.

A much awaited wellness space in Canggu #LDfindsBali #LDfinds #LilyDawis . . . Must visit factor: ☁️☁️☁️☁️☁️. . . There are many massage places around Canggu. For years most get by with haphazard service with not much attention for ambiance. Well, espace spa has arrived. Other than the too techie name for a relaxation haven, the place delivered most of what I look for in a professional spa; hygiene, ambiance, signature strokes. My therapist asked me 4x during my 90 minutes massage though, whether the pressure's still all right, therefore waking me from almost slumber πŸ˜…. Despite the minor note, I like the place. Will try their other services next time am in the area. . . PS: they have soft opening offer: 15% off 60 minutes back massage. #wellness #Canggu #CangguBali #Bali #espace #spa #hiddentreasures #traditionalmassage #WonderfulIndonesia #spareview
Some places just have the it factor... #LDfindsBali #LDfinds #LilyDawis . . . Heard how special the place is from a few friends. Alas, the weather's not friendly. So the lovely maitre'd suggested we check the place out for next time as indoor sittings were limited and completely FULL despite the minimum charge of IDR 200/pax advance voucher system. Because of the voucher system kinda theme park-ish. But maybe they have no choice considering how popular it is with open access to the beach. . .

Viennoisserie at its best #LDfindsBali #LDfinds #LilyDawis Decadent french toast, with shredded coconut. Monsieur Spoon Croissant. Chocolatine. We swooned as we had a transcendent experience. In Bali but the baked goods tasted even better than most places in Europe. No wonder as they insist that their butter is from Normandy, France and cocoa from Valrhona chocolates.

The weather's moody and wet, thankfully the place was still chill, the food comforting. #LDfindsBali #LDfinds #LilyDawis . . . PS: saw world class female dj @natashadiggs #natashadiggs a few tables away and at lobby of @eastincanggubali , but out of respect for her privacy, pretended not to notice 😝😎 . . F & B : ☁️☁️☁️☁️ Ambiance: ☁️☁️☁️☁️ Service: ☁️☁️☁️ (there were many staffs but a few rather impatient, witnessed them hesitating/sighing when asked by definite patrons to help take pics). . . . This was on top of everyone's list as a must go in Canggu. Weather's not friendly today but we could feel the cool vibes anyway. Pork was really tender, frieds also decent. #TheLawnCanggu #Canggu #Bali #beachclub #WonderfulIndonesia #porkbelly #restaurantreview #dj #femaledj #islandlife

Water. . From mountains to the sea, Through the river it goes, Across rocks and sands, Against blazing sun and winds past, Determined to find the vast ocean. #LDfinds #LDfindsBali #LilyDawis #CangguBeach #Canggu #Bali #poetry #writersofig #writersofinstagram #blacksandbeach #WonderfulIndonesia #beachlife #islandlife
A brand new exciting resort in the luxe hipster area of Canggu, Bali. Glad to be here for the soft opening with a great deal offer, 50% off standard rates. #LDfindsBali #LDfinds #LilyDawis . . . The place is charming, chic and comfy. . . Impressed that on its inaugural days they could deliver such high standards of cleanliness, sincere service friendliness and great tasting food. Ambiance has also been on point. Already thinking when we could return with our children. . . Doors still creak a bit and bang rather loudly. Slight construction also still ongoing, but understandable for 1 day old operation therefore the half priced rate? Hope these mild discomforts would have been ironed out on our return visit. . #EastinCangguBali #Canggu #Bali #WonderfulIndonesia #visitbali #expatlife #newresort #architecturephotography #interiordesign #hiddentreasure #hotelreview #islandlife
Amazing patterns, lines and colors coming together beautifully #LDfindsBali #LDfinds #LilyDawis . . *Psst: Soft opening rates, 50%off* . . I'm a little obsessed with this spiral staircase.

I love clouds, especially around sunsets, enjoyed up in the air. #LDfindsBali #LDfinds #LilyDawis Flight review: Jakarta - Denpasar. Carrier: Batik Air Class: Business Cabin comfort: ☁️☁️☁️☁️ F&B : ☁️☁️☁️ Service: ☁️☁️☁️☁️ First time flying Batik Air, quite pleased. Lounge in Jakarta spacious though a tad humid maybe because v high ceiling (last vid). Food wasn't very edible and the speakers too loud. Thankfully flight was pleasant, seats comfy despite semi-manual adjusters. Food was rather tasty and warm. Drinks selection not so large but decently presented. Arrival was smooth with a luxury van waiting for us and happy to find our luggages already waiting at a designated premiere corner. #airlinereview #BatikAir #upintheair #frequentflyer #sunset
Young at heart treasures in words and trinkets, colorful world of wind chimes, paper and fabric arts #LDfinds #LilyDawis . . . Amazed there's still an establishment not welcoming cameras at this day and age. Once inside, we would understand. So many trinkets and wisdom through words stacked haphazardly but artfully so. Allowing people to take pics freely could be hazardous to other customers. Out of respect and due to luck of door left open and through the window, I managed a few shots for you to glimpse this special place. . . #LDfindsinSG #singapore #visitsingapore #books #familyfriendly #kidsbooks #childrenbookstore #author
Out of the three delightful cupcakes we tried, love the black sesame with miso caramel the most (1st pic). The combination so original and phenomenal. . . . The place with a humble name but offers way more than that... #LDfinds #LDfindsSG #LilyDawis . . . F & B: tbd (tried only 3 cupcakes and a drink so can't really provide a review on all F&B as no savories were consumed). Ambiance: ☁️☁️☁️☁️☁️ (chillax mood). Service: N/A (mostly self service). . . . #dessertgasm #plainvanillabakery #cupcakes #dessertporn #bakery #cakery #coworkingspace #visitsingapore #singapore #childfriendly #familyfriendly
