I went to a house party recently. It was a birthday celebration for a great friend. Like many days during lockdown, I felt lethargic, low in energy and not in the mood to go anywhere, let alone a party.

Lets' talk SHOP first! I am in Bali for over a month now and every day I plan on writing about this journey for myself so that I don't forget any of it. The problem is that I get distracted and keep putting it off so today I start this Bali memoire!!...
