NEEAH

I had such a wonderful weekend! Thought I’d have Sunday off to chill, clean the mess that was left from the Party Saturday night. But I woke up early to go to swap meet with Erika and Erica. Yes, that’s two Erica’s lol. I did get to clean up a bit before I met up with Neeah for a photo shoot, these images were shot with an iPhone. The film will be developed later this week.

M&M Bali 2019

I received these two photos from Mikey last night while he is still traveling with his wife Maggie. I just wanted to share this beautiful photo of us in Bali for their wedding. Not sure when or where we can see the rest but I’ll wait till they get back. And I can’t wait to pick up my photos from Bali, currently at Nelson Photo Supplies right now.

Not your typical wedding photo with those middle fingers lol. But I love it.

M&M Wedding Trip (Bali) pt 5

Last day here in Bali, Dook, my cousin and I left Ubud to another area of Bali. The distance between us it not so far but it took about 2 hours to travel due to traffic. It should’ve been a 40 minute drive.

We spent our last day together in Ubud rafting down a river. I was super scared at first, I’ve never done that before but I knew I shouldn’t let fear in the way of this experience. I didn’t get any photos because I left my phone and camera with the driver. I would’ve damage my stuff or lost it in the river if I tried. Rafting was not so bad by the way. It was extremely fun and mellow. It wasn’t an advance river to raft in, and I felt hella athletic too cuz I wasn’t as tired I thought I’d be. I was rowing the shit like I’ve been trained for this haha. The hike up and down was a bitch though, I’ll never like that shit lol.

Speaking of hiking, our new Airbnb is right on the beach but the hike to get down is about 200 steps down, maybe more. They said 200 but I felt like it was more haha. I don’t even feel like leaving to explore because that means it’s a hike up and my body ain’t the same no more, my right knee hurts on the climb. I walked the beach early in the morning and it was too short to explore some further. I tried to take pictures but not much to see yet. This place is mad beautiful though, and we have wild monkeys!

The only photos we have from the rafting. We hiked down these stairs to the river, and took a group photo at the bottom. I was terrified btw, but when we got on it I got super into it! It was SOOOOO MUCH FUN!!

See me back there? I gave it a thumbs down cuz I didn’t want do it at first but I didn’t want fear to hold me back of this great memory in Bali together.

I didn’t take any pictures of JFC but KFC is much better. By the way, the fried chicken from McDonalds here and in Thailand are untouchable. They’re bomb as fuck!

M&M Wedding Trip (Bali) Pt 4

This part of the trip where I find myself crying. My best friend marrying his wife in Bali in front of the waterfall. A very small wedding of 13-16 people can go due limited space. Wedding has been very repetitive and forced I feel like, very text book. No offense but I’m beginning to get bored of going to weddings. This non traditional wedding of Mikey and Maggie restored my faith in love once again. They didn’t go by the book, They did want they wanted to do to celebrate their love for each other. Without that goofy intro and dance moves as they announce you haha. And their vows, love, and dedication to each other touched my heart and made me cry (unexpectedly). It was beautiful, very touchy, very emotional, and very small with close friends and family. I loved it. Made me want to fall in love and have that same experience. Don’t trip, I ain’t a fool, I know this shit ain’t easy. I know it’s a lot of work. The type of work I usually just cut off if things goes bad. I’ve known Mikey forever, and Maggie for over a decade and seen their ups and down and they still pulled through and still in love. The lesson I learned is that if you find the right one, and love that person enough to work through it, forgiveness, acceptance, that’s what it takes to be with someone forever. Nothing good comes easy.

Up at 4 AM to get ready. Make artist came pretty early too.

M&M Wedding Trip (Bali) Pt 3

Bali remind me so much of Thailand and Cambodia. I have yet to see the super beautiful side that we see on social media and advertisement. We’ve been staying in the country side among the locals, hidden in the dirt alley behind the small homes. You’d find nice homes in the back covered by trees and bamboos. Its hot during the day and night and then it gets cold by midnight and morning. To cross the street, you just have to say “fuck it” and cross and hope not to get hit by a car haha. And you know what’s crazy? There’s rarely any traffic lights and order but no accidents! If American was to drive these streets, they’d crash every second of the day.

The whole crew arrived finally and all met up for our big intro dinner to Bali. I just called it an intro dinner cuz it’s the first night we’re all together for dinner. We went to a place called Balinese Home Cooking, food was aight. We all shared the food, well, basically all fought for a piece lol. We thought it was family portion, maybe it was, and we are just a bunch of fat asses lol.

I normally like to stay away from tourist activities and all we’ve been doing really are tourist stuff. The restaurant we went to was a tourist attraction, and the next morning we went to Monkey Forest, another tourist attraction.

Dook, my cousin Channa, and I went to get something to snack on around 3 PM while we waited for Mikey and Maggie to show up to the house. We went for a snack before our big dinner at 8PM with the rest of the crew.

So we came here to Mama Lobster, and we were the only one there. Yes I was worried.

M&M Wedding Trip (Bali) Pt 1

While we wait for the rest of the party to arrive, especially Mikey and Maggie, I’ll take this time to post some photos of Bali. It took about 20 hours and some change to get here from LAX, the flight was mostly smooth but the time to get here felt like an eternity. We arrived to Bali around midnight and we didn’t have a place to stay. We went to a hotel called Grandmas Plus where everyone from our party was staying hoping they have some rooms available but they didn’t. So we sat there for an hour looking for a hotel and got super lucky and found one. Bed sleep I ever had, maybe cuz I was super tired, or the bed was super comfortable. It was a mission to get around but I had faith that everything would work out. Ill post the updates on the photos below because we are still socializing and getting around. Enjoy!!

BTW, Bali is so cheap and weather is super nice. Not as hot as I expected it to be.

Just took some random pictures of snacks.
