“I want to try a type of fish that they deep fry there and they do it in an Indonesian way which I want to try,” said Kailene. Kailene is referring to Gurame Bakar which is deep fried until you can snap the bones like crackers. She added that she was also a fan of Asian food so was looking forward to eating the noodles there. 

2. Bali Swings & Rice Terraces…

“They grow their own rice there and in the rice fields you can go and take lovely pictures. There’s a nice swing that is like a nest, they call it the Bali swing that you can sit on and just take lovely pictures,” she said. The Bali Swing is one of Bali’s most instagrammable spots.

5. (Tattoo) Shopping…

Kailene said she was looking forward to shopping not just for clothes but also tattoo’s. “They are big on tattoo’s there, I have a few ideas of what I want but when you get to another country you tend to go with the designs they come up with. They have traditional tattoo’s there that I am interested in seeing,” she said.

She added that she definitely wanted to get a tattoo of a little palm tree and a wave on her ankle because she is an island girl at heart
The three items she said she will definitely be taking with her are; her bikini, camera/phone for lovely pictures and wet wipes or hand sanitizer.
