Sweden Oh Sweden.......

Hey everyone,

I read this somewhere and I think it's ridiculous. According to the article, a 65-year-old man took off his shorts at a beach near Stockholm and began masturbating into the ocean. The man was charged with sexual assault, but was acquitted last week after a judge ruled he was not targeting a specific person.

Even though the Sodertorn District Court's judgement stated it 'may be proven that the man exposed himself and masturbated on this occasion', the court decided the man had not committed a crime, a decision the public prosecutor agreed with, though he said in the future public masturbation might be considered disorderly conduct.

'For this to be a criminal offence, it's required that the sexual molestation was directed towards one or more people,' Olof Vrethammar said. 'I think the court's judgement is reasonable. With that we can conclude that it is okay to masturbate on the beach.' The ruling in the case comes just 3 months after Sweden's last major sex scandal, when police in Stockholm announced that a man who fucks bicycles was on the loose. So I guess Sweden is OK with public masturbation.

I don't know about you but I laughed whilst reading this article. Laughing at the ridiculous old man also the man who fucks bicycles...... Get a room guys....

1st Anniversary's Trip to Bali, Indonesia (August 2013)

Hello everyone,

Time passes so fast that we are already celebrating our 1st anniversary. Since both of us share the same interest which is traveling, hence, we decided to celebrate our 1st anniversary at a luxurious hotel yet affordable where we will be spending most of our time there.

We chose Bali, Indonesia for a 3D2N trip as it is near and there are 1,700 hotels to choose from. We wanted to stay in a villa with a private pool. After a few days of research, we decided to stay at La Villais Exclusive Villa and Spa in Seminyak. We booked via The price per night for a single bedroom is around USD200-300 depending on how early you book it.  

There are a few places famous in Bali. If you want entertainment and shopping right next to you, you may choose Kuta or Legian. If you want a quieter area but not too far from entertainment, you may choose Seminyak.
The villa is about 20 minute drive from Ngurah Rai Airport. It has 26 rooms only. Hence, you will have a lot of privacy. 
The villa was having a renovation, so they built an alternative entrance at the back. The villa gave us a welcome drink which was a guava juice. Nice! We felt so welcoming.
The private pool is provided with a gazebo. The living room, dining area and the kitchen is outdoor.

The coffee house where we had our breakfast. The food was ok but maybe the villa management may want to add more varieties in the buffet menu.
The pathway to the villas.
If you don't feel like walking, you may call for a buggy service. It will come in no time. Our villa was at the end so we always used the buggy.

The housekeeping will come and spray the mosquito repellent every evening and leave this on your bed.

The view in front of the villa, a mini paddy field.
The villa is near to Seminyak Square, where all the shops and restaurants are at. It's about a 10 minute walk. So you will not have any difficulties to find food nearby.

The Ulin Villa and Spa looks so nice in my opinion. It's double the price of La Villais Exclusive. Perhaps our next visit?
