When I woke up this morning at Golden Tulip Mataram, I was greeted with an AMAZING view of Lombok.
Thankfully I still had time to eat breakfast. 😋
Our first destination was: Sasak Sade Traditional Village.
- 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 😂 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.
Leaving the Sasak Sade behind, went back on the bus to Taliwang for lunch!
Back on the bus and now shopping time! Sasaku is a one stop souvenir shopping here in Lombok.
Boarded and rode for 15-20 minutes.
Dinner was at Scallywags and we enjoyed a salad bar and BBQ dinner!
