   We were having a great time and exhausted on 30 December 2014.
We changed our schedule on 30 December. We were planning to go to Ubud on 2nd January, but we ended up going to Ubud on 30 December, because we're afraid of the bad traffic and worried about the transport.

DAY 3 (30 December 2014)

 Early morning,we had our breakfast at our hotel, and we started our trip to UBUD at 10.30 am, we were so excited. Usually, it only takes 1-2 hours to arrive Ubud, but it took us longer, caused by the bad traffic. It took us almost 3 hours before we finally arrived Ubud.

 Our first stop at Ubud is Bebek Bengil ( Dirty Duck ) Restaurant. The Restaurant is recommended and well-known on Ubud. It has a cozy and welcoming place. We had our late lunch here. It was so crowded, we waited for quite a long time before our food's finally served. We're too starving that we cant taste their foods properly. We ate like a monster until the foods're tasteless for us.

 After we had our late lunch, we walked to the nearest toilet and saw a small rice field on the back side of the Bebek Bengil Restaurant. We took a quick picture there. We love this place.

 Then, We went to A Sacred Monkey Forest at Ubud, where monkeys're set free in this forest and we're able to feed them bananas. We just arrived and bought some bananas, we saw a group of monkeys. Hans was so excited, he fed them with the bananas that we bought, while i took pictures and video.

 Honestly, i was scared. The monkeys saw Hans holding bananas. So, they started to hunt him. I kept silent,paralyzed and scared by myself. Hans played with the monkeys and threw the bananas, the monkeys quickly took it. We also saw a baby monkey hung onto his mama's body which 's so cute and lovely. It was quite an experience seeing my boyfriend greet his monkey friends there, lol. 
saw a monkey with his dying pose after ate too much bananas.
 There're people selling stuffs,foods,and drinks inside the forest. We walked around the forest, we saw many monkeys. I started to like them, when i saw a baby monkey playing with it's mama. It's was a very adorable view and moment i enjoyed. People around there were also touched. 

 There're many stairs, that took us to different waterfall places inside the forest,but they're actually flow to the same small river. 

 We also saw something in the river, not sure if it's a mini crocodile or a mini komodo. Because there's a komodo statue around the waterfall. The stairs around the waterfall 's getting sheer and slippery, so we went back before we took any picture of it. :(

 We were exhausted, sweating and dehydrated after a long, long walk inside the forest. So we bought some drinks, but suddenly there's a scary black dog approaching us. I was hiding behind Hans, While Hans act like nothing happened. Hans was fine because he loves dog and he has 3 dogs at his home. Sigh, nothing is scarier than a dog suddenly approaching you, while you have dog-phobias. :')

 After that, We went to Pura Taman Saraswati for our last destination at Ubud to watch The Kecak Dance and Drama. 
The kecak dance and drama
 The Kecak Dance and Drama depicts the Hindu epic, "Ramayana" that tells the story of Prince Rama, who with the help of the monkey like Vanara defeats the evil king Ravana, who kidnapped a princess named Sita, to rescue her. Kecak dance is usually ended with a sacred ritual, a spiritual entitles will possess the body of the dancer (fire dance performance). We took some pictures and videos of the show. It was a great show.

 After the show ended, We headed back to seminyak, The traffic was so bad. We were really exhausted waiting in the car, and we were planning to have our dinner at Bistrot, seminyak. But, the traffic was getting worse, We had to find a shortcut, otherwise we will get stuck till midnight, but the shortcut's traffic was bad too, We had no options, so we waited. We arrived our hotel on 10.45pm. It was too late to go to anywhere else and we were so exhausted. So, We cancelled our dinner at Bistrot. And we called MCD for Delivery as our supper, late dinner. We took a shower, stacking our goods, and rest while waiting for our MCD. We're so excited when our MCD arrived. Lol. The monsters out.
super messed table, i was extremely hungry while taking the picture lol
 The next hour, we were hungry again, as usual routine, we snuck out to buy some cup noodles again. Lol
I fell asleep while Hans and my brother were watching tv and playing cards. They slept on 2 am.
