    Bali trip -Day two (Celuk)

    After the Barung and Keris dance.
    Our next destination was Celuk -
    Gold and Silver at work. A place that the tourists' throat can be chopped easily (means they sell the things in a higher price to tourist). They claimed that all the silver decorative and jeweleries are all handmade, but i saw only one lady worker who was "making" the jeweleries...

    This the the lady worker that I was referring to. I suspected she was hired for tourist to take photos only.


    I think this is definitely not her work loh... shshsh.... Maybe I should not judge her like that. I am sorry...


    I don remember the price. But I remember that they are selling a simple silver chain for USD100. With USD100 I think I can buy a pair of small gold ear rings or a tiny pendant...


    I think this is a house and not a temple...
    I cant really differentiate which is house and which is temple even after staying there for days!
    They looked the same, it is confusing...


    This is one of the window, I m impressed by their wood craving work!
    Nice right?


    Next - The Volcano.... Stay tunned!

    I like the wood craving part. if you want me spend just USD100 for that little sliver n gold things...sorry lo, I wont go for it, too expensive and not sure really made by real gold and silver or not.

    USD100 is quite expensive loh I think. I would rather get something else, or have shark fins.

    What a cut throat price! Those tools/equipment look like those still used by the traditional goldsmith in my place
