Thought of the day: “Bargaining has neither friends neither relations.”-Benjamin Franklin
This particular traveller is freaking stubborn. His name is @Lan, he just love challenges especially when it comes to showing his ability to make sellers go for his words. Simply put, he claimed to ably bargain for a cut of more than 80% quoted by sellers. It was at Tegallang, Bali that I saw this beautiful rice terraces and decided that we made a short stop. @Lan on the other hand saw one particular souvenir shop that he decided to bargain for things, souvenirs for some friends. Tegallalang is definitely not a place to shop for souvenirs, the prices are ridiculous but @Lan was determined to implement his art of bargaining. In his wallet, IDR 200,000 (USD15).

It took some time for @joehairie to finally gave in his ‘piece’ of his mind about Bali. Bali is like our second home. We made a point that we must visit Bali at least once a year. It’s a beautiful place with so many good foods, amazing culture and nice people. After so many visits to this mystical land, he recently told me about his inner thoughts, his Déjà vu and I decided that I must write about that. Writing about our ‘tour’ is something common and people do that all the time, all of em’ are in google. We want to write things about Bali, differently. I experienced the presence of an entity and Joe on the other hand experienced the thing named as Déjà vu.
