Bali Trip Chronicles: Which hotel?

Day 2

July 8, 2016 (Friday)

Wohoo! I survived the 6-hour flight with some turbulence on the side! I wasn’t that sick anymore compared to my flight from the Philippines- South Korea (layover)- Japan 5 months ago. That time I felt a little traumatized to go on flights but my travel bug is still with me, though.

It was around 5 in the afternoon when the plane touched down Denpasar International Airport, also known as Ngurah Rai International Airport which is the main airport in Bali. The long queue of tourists at the immigration didn’t give me any surprise. That was expected. There were group of families, solo travelers, backpackers, couples, and the like. I know we were gathered there for one reason.. 😉

Welcome to Bali!!

I was amazed by the architecture of the airport. It denotes the culture of Indonesia, I guess.

Denpasar International AirportThis has been the most unique airport…

Look Me in the Eye: Birds~


I think birds understand more about us than we do about them. This penguin seemed to have me figured out. I had no idea what was on his mind. He seemed quite curious and unafraid. But, if he didn’t like me he is perfectly capable of regurgitating his stomach contents at me to discourage my presence. All I can say is that I am glad he seemed to like me! Birds in the far southern latitudes are less afraid of humans because they see much less of them. Smart birds.

Into Eden’s~


wild west,


coyotes rule,


above the rest.



of the night,

they reign


But in the day,

they step aside,
when into Eden,

serpents slide.


This 12-year-old Southern Pacific Rattlesnake was about 20 feet from our door. She was well over 5 feet in length. My son said, “Aren’t you going to take her picture?”

I was so shocked by her too close presence that I forgot about taking pics which is a first for me, and I was a bit rattled when I finally took them! This is the wild west, and the rattlesnakes live here, and always have.

On another note, a genetic study was published a few days ago, which clarified there is only one true north american wolf, the grey wolf, others are coyote/wolf hybrids.

Cheers to you from Eden’s Holler~

Pokémon Go is Setting the Standards for Next-Gen Gaming


In the world of mobile gaming, the most popular game today is obviously Pokémon Go. Now that developers have witnessed how people have reacted to the game, more game creators will surely pattern their future titles on Satoshi Tajiri’s magnum opus.


One of Pokémon Go’s most obvious spinoff is the Night Terrors augmented reality game, which is a title that targets horror fans. It uses the same augmented reality concept of Pokémon Go, with the only difference that instead of searching for cute Pokémons, players are met with ghostly images and eerily spooky sounds. If that isn’t terrifying enough, the game also interferes with a phone’s operating system by sending frightening texts and ghastly pictures. The game play takes place at home, after dark, accompanied by headphones, which means it’s ideal for all horror fans out there.
