But it was a cool Friday night, so nevermind…
I went out with an old friend, Rully from Suaka and his girlfriend Kat (we actually started – my first and his second – thrash metal band together back in 1991). So we went to this concert at the beach, and just before the top bands playing, we chilled at this restaurant at Kuta Beach.
It was my first year in Bali, back in 2002, when I still had that sucky corporate job.
I was staying in our rent room with my girlfriend enjoying lazy weekend. We thought it was just another weekend in Kuta-Bali. Laid back, warm and accompany by Bintang beer (local cheap but super awesome beer). The weekends that supposedly awesome after a week spent with morons.
No doubt today is the busiest day for me. I spent almost half day out of home office and have meetings with clients. However, i met with Tipi Jabrik, former Pro Surfer now CEO of Indonesia Surfing Championship, who told me this story.
… that you can find this kind of surf in Bali?
Weird. I’ve been celebrating my birthdays for 35 times. Never been a fan of fancy birthdays, in fact i’ve never agree that a birthday is a special day until i met my wife. At least, i still believe that celebrating birthdays is beyond than just a reason to celebrate life. Today, i got 2 happy birthday text messages, 2 emails and some automated greetings from social networking sites.
The conference began today in Nusa Dua, Bali. That’s about 5 miles away from where me and my family live. I just hope that this conference can be successful, the world leaders at least solve something and bring Bali back in the world’s top tourist destination.
