Saturday Night in Central Ubud

Sky invites me
To swarm around a show
That is glistened with colours
In a Saturday night.

Rain almost falls
But is held until the show ends
Simply to tell me
You are welcome.

These steps walk me
To where blessings are.
These breaths inhale me
To where peace is.

Among the crowd I find a calmness
With my own self I find merriness
All is well
All is good

I enjoy Saturday night in Central Ubud.

i normally stay rather far from city center of Ubud but this one night i wanted to stay in the city where dance performances are located in many different spots โ€” this is the side gate of Puri Saraswati Dijiwa Ubud opening to the lotus garden

tonightโ€™s performance in lotus garden was Tari Janger (janger dance), maybe next time ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

i wanted to watch Legong Dance performance so i walked to Pura Saren Ubud which was 200 meters away from where i stayed

was the first to enter to get a seat in the 1st row and later found it was not at all the 1st row ๐Ÿ˜‚

seeing the preps is already exciting!

musicians were getting ready

Tari Pendet (welcoming dance) โ€” i learnt this dance as a child, felt like wanted to laugh remembering how funny i was dancing with my sister ๐Ÿ˜‚

Tari Topeng #1 โ€” sorry i donโ€™t know the name; watching with many types of spectators whose joy might be over the limit and blocks othersโ€™ view ๐Ÿ˜‚

Tari Legong – the primary show ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Tari Legong โ€” i wanted to watch this simply because i have a sleeping gown with legong dancer on it ๐Ÿ˜€

Tari Oleg Tamulilingan

Tari Kupu-Kupu (butterfly dance) inserted as part of Oleg Tamulilingan

Tari Oleg Tamulilingan (dancing bees)

Tari Oleg Tamulilingan (dancing bee)

Tari Topeng #2 โ€” sorry i donโ€™t know the name

we didnโ€™t know who was behind the mask but he did perform so well and we enjoyed it ๐Ÿ’

thanks for the show! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ happiness is an ambiance shareable with those we donโ€™t know and we probably donโ€™t care to know โ€” God bless all ๐Ÿ’
