About a year ago, we went to KEUKEN‘s very first Open Picnic at Taman Cempaka. The day was surprisingly pleasant. When a casual get together in such a vast park with various different sections where you could find a nice spot to scooted around and parked your picnic rug, shared along a basket of homemade food, served with a glass of fresh lemonade tea is an actual kind of happiness. The rays of sunshine penetrating through the vast leaves from the nearby trees, the smell of grass and the sound of warm conversations along with good tunes gathered us together.
With cooking performance from Chef Downey a.k.a. Arifin Windarman, photography workshop from Taman Fotografi, Diet Kantong Plastik Campaign, Ngabring Biking gathering from Bike.Bdg and everybody else contributed for a leisure day under the cool shade. There is nothing more pleasurable than spend your weekend picnicking with friends and enjoying a nice breezy afternoon in the park.
Take a day off, gather close.

Continuing our trip in Bali, all 14 of us decided to visit other beaches around Uluwatu, in southern part of Bali. First, we went to Padang-Padang Beach, a beautiful but secluded beach behind the cliff. Poor us, it was packed with fellow tourists that day and within 5 minutes there, we decided to go to the other beach near in the area, Balangan Beach.
The next day, me, Morrie, and the other six guys went to Ubud, while the others snorkeled at Amed Beach. Morrie found a must-visit-place there, a small jam shop called Kou Cuisine. The place is so simple yet lovely, our upcoming post is specially dedicated to this cute shop.

Morrie loves beach so much, she always have soft spot for anything summer. Getting all excited like a kid with a cheerful smile, she could spent hours playing in the beach.
The first beach we went to is Echo Beach in Canggu, Bali. Since we didn’t bring our swimsuits, Morrie decided to walk along the beach, play with the waves and found some seashells (she picks some of them for herself), while I took some photographs (mostly of her :p).
These are the seashells Morrie collected from Echo Beach, my favorite is the spiral one, with the brown lines around it. :)

How are you, people? We’re home! The holiday was fun and the best part is we visited some new places we never been before in Bali. We traveled along with my co-worker from House The House, some of them is also Morrie’s friends from college.
At Echo Beach, Morrie found seashells and she took some of them as a reminder of beautiful beaches in Bali. See Morrie’s seashells in our upcoming post! :)
