Snapshot Saturday: Bali Bust

Kuta Beach, one lazy early afternoon.

If you ask me about the best beaches I have seen here and abroad, off the top of my head, Kuta Beach ain't on the list. However, the island's cult following clad in rash guards, is such an amusing bunch. They can easily make you linger for a while.

Our three-day stay in Bali about two years ago was phenomenal, sans surfing... Thanks to our Couchsurfing hosts. But it wasn't for two Filipinas who were recently suspected of being "drug mules" by immigration officers at Ngurah Rai International Airport (Denpasar International Airport).

Bless their courageous souls for sharing via blog post and the social network their ordeal. That should teach 'em unreasonable beings.

The town of Ubud on Bali Island is really worth going to... I-sched na lang siguro Indonesia a bit later.

Ian, don't fret. Hopefully this shiz dies down soon, at matuto ng leksyon ang mga officers.

Ganun, pagbintangan daw ba kayo.. I know the feeling being held-up at the airport because of some suspicion.. The beach looks nice though..

cool blog!
Naharang din kami the last time we went to Bali, pero not to the extent of what happened to the two girls.
still love Bali though. im sure the whole incident has been brought up to the proper authorities and they'll have that sorted out... hopefully. :D
