Leo is away from 25th till 30th June 2008 in Bali.

He is enjoying a nice flight on Singapore Airlines to Singapore, enroute Bali.

When he reaches, he’s gonna have a good night’s sleep and go for various spa treatments the next day on the shores of the Black Sand beach of Spa Village Tembok, in Singaraja – northeast of Bali Island.

He will probably sit on an edge of the pool, meditate and go “OOOOOOOOOOOHHHHMMMMMM”, thereafter attaining enlightenment whilst sipping cocktails with a cherry and little umbrella attached to it.

So, to you guys out there who’s reading this with envy, he has only one thing to say…

“Its a tough thing to do, but someone’s gotta shovel the shit…”

=) Till later, arrivederci!

The Big Bali Plan

with 2 comments

So the big Bali plan has been finalised, somewhat…

We’ll be arriving Bali on 25th June (a big *aHeM* – my birthday lahhhh) and spend two to three nights at Spa Village Tembok at Singaraja on the northeastern side of the island.

After that brief period of isolation and reflection (I make it sound so spa-ish, don’t I?), we move on to Seminyak… Haven’t decided on which place yet, but it’ll probably be either The Oberoi Bali, Sofitel Seminyak Bali or some nice villas around the area.

Good plan?? I think so too…

A domani!
Un bacio grande, Leo
