Looking for a little Moroccan light….. or 3?

Lighting stores are popping up frequently in the tourist strip of Bali.

One such store is Suka Ashih Shop. It’s bursting at the seams with marvellous Moroccan lighting!


Wholesale and retail prices are available here.  They will also make to order.


It’s a little like an Aladdin’s cave of lighting where space is at a premium.  If you don’t mind getting your hands dirty, so to speak and doing a little rummaging, you may well discover a special find here.


Happy shopping!!

On trend – stylish PIMENT ROUGE for homewares…

PIMENT ROUGE – Homewares


When it comes to homewares, Bali is on trend. A few years ago, when building a new house in Australia, I topped up my container of imported goods with assorted purchases from the very stylish “Piment Rouge” homeware store. Unique decorator items are sold here including soft furnishings, bed linens and furniture.


Bedside lamps, placemats and table runners, ornaments, vases, paintings and various unique items I had not seen elsewhere, I enthusiastically purchased at bargain basement prices. I am still so thrilled with the items – each holding a special memory of the time I sourced them.


On each return trip to Bali, I never fail to stop in at Piment Rouge – usually on Monkey Forest Road, Ubud or Jalan Raya Seminyak.


Pigment Rouge’s Factory showroom is at Jl. Serangan No 3, Pengubengan Kauh, Kerobokan, telephone: 0361 738 411. Retail stores include Jl. Raya Seminyak 60X, Seminyak; and Jl. Purabagus Taruna No 513, Legian.

Suave, New York Style bar/restaurant with wicked cocktails!



Chef Will Meyrick has brought the same exacting standards from his flagship restaurant Sarong to this breezy, more casual second outpost. Decor is terrific, big pictures of Mamasan herself on the walls – very stylish. The music has always been excellent and I find myself returning frequently. The seating downstairs is fairly basic  (it works) – upstairs though is a selection of arm chairs, bar stools and more.  I prefer it!


The food is a smorgasbord of Asian fusion delights with a focus on China, Thailand and Vietnam.  Faultless service, inventive, thoughtfully prepared dishes and a beautiful, hipster-chic decor combine to make this a remarkable dining experience. Too many standout dishes – to name however a few are: Vietnamese chicken and pomelo salad, Szechuan slow cooked beef short ribs and masalachai panna cotta, spicy beef dum sum, peking duck, pork belly, crispy duck curry, thai beef salad, crème brulee’ with coffee afogatto….. mmmm!  Try the tapas selection too – you won’t regret it!


The service is fabulous and very high-end.  There is a decent wine list but the real deal is in the cocktails – just superb!

This bar and restaurant is a modern, sophisticated, luxury haven at super reasonable prices.

Mamasan delivers!!
