It seemed like such a long journey, traveling to Denpasar, Bali. It was dark when we left Kampung Slim in Perak, Malaysia and since the plane did not leave until late in the afternoon, we spent a big portion of the time loitering in LCCT. When we reached Denpasar, it was already night. So, it looked as if it took one day to reach our destination. Reaching the airport in Denpasar, we were confronted with a nurse and some officers who were stationed there to take the passengers’ particulars. We were given a form and we were to tell whether we had a fever or not and so on. It was the beginning of the SARS scare then and even though the authority seemed cautious, no temperature was taken from us. I asked the nurse if there was any SARS case yet in Bali and she answered in the negative. Even if the answer had been a yes, that would not stop us from Beautiful Bali, would it? We just had to check into a hotel first!
