Ubud Market

Ubud is a province north of Denpasar in Bali.It is famous for its countryside of rice terraces, usually reached by biking, which we did. It is also known for its culture of the arts, yoga, and great and cheaper massages. 🙂

I come from the Philippines and it’s just 4 hours away from Bali. This means that most of the food we eat are from the same tropical climate. We went around the Ubud market and was happy to find that though we have the same local fruits and vegetables for most, there are still unusual finds in there. Some pictures here below.

Also, there was a street vendor selling Jamu, a turmeric drink with raw egg. I cringe. I tried it. Found the image of drinking raw egg gross, and turned it over to Sushee, who happily finished it. 🙂 Supposed to make you strong.
