After Lombok we got a five minute aeroplane ride over to Bali and we stayed at a place called BB Hostel in Canggu. The hostel had a swimming pool, a pool table and a television.The first day we were there the swimming pool was out of order because the pump had stopped working. While we were there Dad invented special dipper where you fill the lid of a water bottle with water and dip your toothbrush in. We needed to do that because tap water in Indonesia isn’t clean, so we used bottled water for that instead.
In the evening we left Jago at BB Hostel and the rest of us went out for dinner but it was only five minutes there. The food was delicious, I had a folded up ham pizza and ravioli stuffed with spinach.
I woke up the next day knowing it would be Cara’s fake birthday today. She had a fake birthday becauae Dad wouldn’t be there for her proper birthday. He was leaving because Nanny was very ill. We went straight to splash water park because that’s how Cara wanted to spend the day. At Splash there was a massive rainbow coloured water slide and a Tarzan swing, and I had 2 fizzy drinks. On the rainbow slide you needed to go down on a mat and you went really fast, and we raced each other. It was amazing and I would like to go back there. I also enjoyed table tennis with Dad, going round the lazy river and the big red waterslide. It was a brilliant day. Then we got a shuttle bus to Finn’s bar which was on a sandy beach with lots of surfers surfing and we had another fizzy drink by the sea. Finally we went to Bobs restaurant and they said they were good for birthdays. I had a beef burger and yet another fizzy drink and played pool. We got a cake with candles in and we sang “Happy Birthday”.
The next day we went to Kota Kinabalu and left Dad at Kuala Lumpur airport. It was sad leaving him. The last few days in Bali we did fun things but we didn’t enjoy them as much as we should have because we knew that Dad was going to leave.
