#TripofWonders Lombok and Gili

When I woke up this morning at Golden Tulip Mataram, I was greeted with an AMAZING view of Lombok.

Oh my goodness so beautiful. Unfortunately it was a rush, so I had to hurry between packing, putting on my face, getting dressed, taking photos. Omg!

Thankfully I still had time to eat breakfast. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Got on the bus super early too! 

Marul drove!

Our first destination was: Sasak Sade Traditional Village.

We were greeted with a gift of woven scarves and very expressive traditional dances.

  • Tarian Gendang Belek/Big Drum Dance – Welcome Dance
  • Petuk Dance – Common performed by boys before circumcision 
  • Perisaian Dance – To celebrate Indonesia Independance Day and to appoint a warrior (if I’m not mistaken)
  • Amak Tempengus Dance – another Welcome Dance

This was followed by a tour around Sasak Sade.


Our guide mentioned that Fauziah Latiff came to Sasak Sade recently ๐Ÿ˜‚ Our guide also kept on making kidnapping jokes which I didn’t really get at first until someone told me that it’s a wedding custom here haha. U kidnap a girl that u want to marry!

Some more scenes from the village.

However, the nost memorable is this one:

This mossy green paste she is polishing the floors with is COW DUNG. ๐Ÿ˜ซ it keeps her house free of mosquitos. Nyamuk oun nda sanggup.

Leaving the Sasak Sade behind, went back on the bus to Taliwang for lunch!

Freaking SPICY Ayam goreng Taliwang is a special culinary identity of Lombok! ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ Can’t taste anything else!

Back on the bus and now shopping time! Sasaku is a one stop souvenir shopping here in Lombok.

From there we drove for maybe 45 minutes on the bus to Teluk Kodek to catch a fast boat to Gili. 


Boarded and rode for 15-20 minutes.


Had a welcome drink too! A drink attached to wooden woman no less.

Checked into the lovely Villa Ombak, rested a bit and soon, it was dinner time!

Dinner was at Scallywags and we enjoyed a salad bar and BBQ dinner! 

So full after so I jalan jalan.

Lapas atu aku tidur and didn’t join any parties. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ ESUK SAJA PASAL KALAT MATA!!!
