Large malls & chain shopping centres have sprung up more than my memory of Bali could recall. The constant traffic jams around popular tourist areas is such a chore. Still, the skies are sunny. The frothy foamy waves enticingly beckon. The foliage remains luscious. The terraced rice fields still doesn’t fail to marvel as I savour every grain of rice on my plate. The volcanoes still majestic. And the Balinese culture still as fascinating as before.
