BALI : TIJILI HOTEL

I am really in a need of Holiday. This past few weeks has been rough for me. But I’m pressing on.. Knowing that it is not the end of the line, and knowing that i have a great God who is just Risen, who healed my scars and gives hope of the future! oohh, by the way, Happy Passover for my Christian and Catholic friends. ❤

Since i cant go anywhere for now, i just browse through my picture folders to ease my craving for holiday. When i browse around, i found that i have not share about this one great hotel in Bali.

Tijili Hotel 

We spent another night in Bali after spending our 5 days of Flores trip. Last year, we still need to made flight transit to Bali before going to and from Labuan Bajo. Whereas now, there’s a new flight schedule from Garuda Indonesia that goes directly to Labuan Bajo from Jakarta (even though the price is still not as friendly as other airlines and not many direct flights yet)

A friend of mine, Amanda, found this while we searched on our Bali accommodation. and i felt so blessed to sleep in this uniquely beautiful hotel. Moreover, after one night stay at traditional village on a mountain, with three nights live on board. This hotel is just so perfect for us, like finally we are back to the civilisation. Haha.. Well, dont get me wrong, Flores trip was super awesome, but getting a proper rest after the adventure is equally important for me too. =)

Located at the trendiest neighbourhood of Bali,  Seminyak, a nice location where many local boutiques shops, restaurants, and nightlife entertainment, and 20 minutes drive to Ngurah Rai, Bali Airport. And as i remember, this 4 star hotel is still affordable too. Not as pricy as other hotels.

This cozy hotel is quite spacious to share among three guests, luxurious standard of bedding (even for the extra bed), clean room, cold aircon, fast wifi. and a very unique design of everything in it.  I just love all the creative interior details.

“Tijili” refers to a Balinese traditional motif that represents the rice goddess – Dewi Sri; a symbol of prosperity and fertility.

*and gossip said that Bandung Mayor, Ridwan Kamil contributes his ideas to made this artistic hotel too!

Sisterfields – Bali Hippest Cafe

I still vividly remember our Bali trip. Exactly today, last month, It was 21 of us, and we were struggling where to have our brunch. Some of us have some options in mind and threw it to the crowd, but our crowd also got confused because we had too many options. haha.  Indeed, Bali has a great range of cafe to choose from. Finally, we decided to have our brunch in Bali Hippest Cafe, in the heart of Seminyak, Sisterfields.

We went there about 10am, and the Q was brutally crazy. I really wondered what they serve inside, cause to be honest, i just heard of this cafe when my friend mentioned it (yes, guess im not that hip after all. haha). My friend said they served good quality coffee and the best Australian style brunch in town.

We waited for about 15-20 minutes, and they split us into 3 tables. I quite like the interior design and the layout of this cafe. They really managed to get as many tables as possible, without making it looked so packed.

We ordered a lot of food that time. But again, i just managed to take some pictures cause i was too excited to try the foods. haha.. The waiting time for all the food was about 15 minutes. Which i think it is already good enough since they have non-stop customer coming in and out.

One thing i noticed here is, they do have great waiter/waitress. They were quite prompt in serving and quite patient in explaining us some food on the menu that is new to us.

So, after we asked a lot of questions, we came down to this foods..

** Sweet Corn Fritters**

Normal corn fritters, fascinating for foreigners. As for us, we just ordered this for fun and regret why we ordered this in a cafe. haha..

EFQE8991**Pan Fried Salt and Pepper Squid**

I personally really like this pan fried squid. The Squid is very tender, it doesnt have funny fishy smells, and the mayonaise with the palm sugar caramel really compliment the salty taste.

**Pulled Pork Charcoal Roll** – The Black One on top

It’s a tender charcoal bread combined with a sweet homemade BBQ sauce on the pulled pork. I like the cabbage coleslaw inside, because it balance the sweetness.

**Smashed Avocado** – The green ones on the left

I like the fresh avocado topped with semi-dried cherry tomatoes and feta cheese. They put one slice of whole-grain bread which i think they need to put more. You have the option to add eggs.

**Mixed Seed and Muesli** – The bowl below

I really like this kind of seeds and yoghurt in a bowl. perfect for brunch! the apples are a bit too sour for me, but overall, i love this big bowl of happiness.

**Polenta Fries** – The long yellow ones on the right

Not a big fan of this kind of fries. Im more shoe-string fries type of girl. But the truffles sauce is good!

**Sisterfields Big Breakfast**

This menu has always been my choice to ‘eat safe’. haha.. Normal food, but everything in it is very good. I seldom finished my big breakfast meal. But this one is exceptional. Love it to the last bite. such a comfort food for me.

Overall Experience :

Ambiance : 3 / 5

Food : 4 / 5

Price : 3 / 5
