Cycle Bali Chapter Four: Bob Marley and Bali

Our love affair with Bali introduced us to Reggae music and her legend, Bob Marley.

The Bob Marley culture in Bali is surprisingly strong. Not sure why. Maybe it's the chillax culture. It's quite common to see Reggae merchandise, paintings etc. And Bob Marley is synonymous amongst the locals.

Along Sanur Beach sits Warung Sunrise Bar & Grill, a Reggae themed bar that offers live music every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The band has been performing faithfully over the past 3 years. Whenever we return to Sanur, we always look forward to spending the night at the bar, by the beach with live Reggae music in the background.

Warung Sunrise Bar & Grill. It's located along Sanur Beach, just next to the Diwangkara Holiday Villa.

And the perfect companion for the chillax music...5000 rupiah (SGD 0.70) Giant Grilled Chilli Corn.

You can get it from the stall just next to the restaurant. We've tried many different stalls but this is the best of them all. There's just something about the chilli they use that differentiates them from the rest.

It's run by a family of 4. Usually it's the mum that tends to the stall. That day, it was her son.

Corn with some butter, chilli and more chilli, charcoal grilled.

An alternative to dining in the restaurant is to chill by the seats in front of the stall. That way, you get to enjoy your corn, the same sea breeze and at the same time live music with no obligation to order from the bar menu!(I know that sounds totally cheapskate)

Do consider throwing in a couple of coconuts to go along with too.

Imagine corn, coconut, music and the night sea breeze...Again we find Life's simple pleasure in Bali... =)

It was a great way to end the day and the perfect prep for the "famous" Ubud climb...
