We all know her as a beautiful actress who has graced our screens with her acting performance, but with us - Alice is all about her journey as motherhood and what it means taking her bundle of joy along on a vacation in her most favorite place ever, Bali.
“We’re no strangers to the paradise that is Bali. We actually went there when Alita was in my belly. This time around, we were excited to bring and introduce her to this gorgeous nature in our own country. We loved to let her know all the best sensations of playing along with the sand, sea and the sun.”
Alice admitted to having her doubts and fears of traveling with her baby. It’s her first time taking the trip with Alita but this new momma had done her fair share of prep work prior. “I was scared but felt up to the challenge at the same time. I did a lot of googling, blog reading and even asking people around for traveling tips. You can say I was very well prepared,” she said.
All of her diligence sure paid off, because Alice and Alita had a total blast during their trip to Bali. Not only did everything went smoothly with Alita, but Bali too displayed the best weather during their time there. “Alita had a great appetite and we enjoyed our time there very much. It’s so worth it!”
Furthermore, Alice shared with us some tips that she learnt on how to have your own relaxing time while keeping your little ones entertained. “It’s all about waterplay so make sure you prepare floats, water guns and other toys. Kids always love water so keep them entertained while you relax and keep watch or simply play along with them,” she said. Waterplay keeps children active and have positive impacts to their appetite and immune system, she further shared.
We also asked Alice what her most treasured memories from her family Bali trip. “It’s watching sunset on the beach and visiting the zoo with Alvin and Alita,” she recalled. “To have SweetEscape photography service along means a lot to us. Especially since Alvin and I love photography, so there’s an extra appreciation for good holiday photo results,” she told us about bringing us along.
“Everytime I look at our Bali photos, I can’t help but be reminded of such a precious time that we shared as a family. It’s like going back to a happy place, a happy time in an instant. This gives me such positive energy and happiness, simply through a glance of a picture,” Alice said.
For this reason, Bali will always remain as a special place for this beauty. She told us, “I always come back to Bali, because of everything it has, from beautiful sceneries, chic accommodations and eateries, clean fresh air and that siesta ambiance that makes everyday feels like holiday!” Simply said, Bali is Alice Norin’s wonderland.
Food scene in Sydney is beyond words. There are tons of place you should go to get a taste of the city. Figuring out what and where to eat can at times be challenging. But we couldn’t be more thrilled to share with you a recommendation from one of Jakarta’s most influential food blogger, Hans Danial, who blogs at EatsAndTreats. He’s pulled together a list of his top restaurant/café recommendation in “the Harbour City”. Read on to learn about them.
181 Enmore Rd, Enmore NSW 2042, Australia The family-run gelato and coffee bar won the best gelato in the world! The place has many adventurous flavors, from miso ginger to coconut mango, it’s going to be a hard for you to decide which flavor to choose. Affogato and pistachio are Hans’ favorite from the place he claimed his most favorite gelato in Sydney.
9, 37 Ultimo Rd, Haymarket NSW 2000, Australia A famous Thai street food and noodle bar, serving their best-selling noodle soup, which is extremely hot and absolutely delicious. Try Moo ping skewers aka pork neck skewers, they’re charred to perfection, super tasty and great texture. For Hans, visiting Do Dee Paidang is a mandatory, especially when all he needed was a delicious Asian fare.
547 Bourke St, Surry Hills NSW 2010, Australia It’s the coffee place you must pay homage to if you’re a coffee aficionado. Everything’s expertly crafted. His favorite is definitely the soy cap. It has the perfect taste, creamy texture, simply one of the best.
7A, 2 Huntley St, Alexandria NSW 2015, Australia This place is known for its homestyle food and specialty coffee in a former pie factory with brick walls and an organic garden. The Grounds is gorgeous, for sure, and always packed. Make sure you come early (and hungry!) for their signature dishes like Berry Hotcakes, which, according to Hans, he had so many of them during his days in Sydney because they’re that good!
68 Sir John Young Cres, Woolloomooloo NSW 2011, Australia A small cafe that combines sweets and flowers, Petal Met Sugar creates too-pretty-to-eat delicious dessert. Everything here is so Instagrammable. Just look how pretty their Terrarium with lupicia jasmine tea panacotta, yuzu gel, strawberry crisps, chocolate soil, edible flowers and lemon balm.
