My itchy backside hands, was idle while waiting for Guinea Pig to feed me dinner. So I went randomly Goggling about stuff (no, nothing too adult, I’m just a kid!), and I somehow Goggled about the ever famous Bali Curse. (LuLu just got back from Bali – and we’re praying hard the curse is just a myth).
But what shocked me was the amount of write up on this. Easily read about 20 blogs specifically on this topic alone (yes, I’m contributing to the pile). There are stories of how ppl dated for 10 years, some survived years of long distance relationship, some were engaged, but all broke up eventually after their last holiday together to Bali, mostly within half a year.
Apparently there’s an old folks tale about a princess who was abandoned by her prince on the island, and she was so distraught she put a curse on unwedded couples who visits the island. (Probably the jerk took off after ‘doing’ her, and she’s cursing all couples who have pre-marital sex on the island!!!) That make sense right? Cos what do we all plan to do at night on a romantic island, far away from work, city and with probably some booze? So, if anyone knows anyone out there who went to Bali with their partners, behaved like 12 year olds, yet broke up anyways after the trip, pls let me know. Cos Guinea Pigs not gonna be too happy with the idea of going there with our chastity belts on. 😛
I did discuss the curse with him, but as expected, he brushed it off, saying we, humans, only see what we want to see. If we were to hunt for couples who got married and is still together, happily married with kids now, we’ll find aplenty too. He has a point eh.. he always does. Sigh
So anyways… Most sites about this curse eventually had their writers mentioning their fears as they are going to Bali with their current bfs, and that sparked the reason for blogging about it. I’m pretty typical in this sense. Guinea Pig and I are scheduled to visit Bali coming Jan, and I’m starting to worry about it. Which I shouldn’t. I know, we all should have more faith in our relationships than succumbing to some gossips of a curse. Right? Easier said than done!
Am not hoping to add another Bali Curse story to the blogosphere, so here’s to hoping LuLu’s relationship stays intact, and they’ll have their happy ending (in more than one aspect :P) <- NO pressure Lu.
Ok.. Got to go now.. time to mum mum… our food genre tonight, Korean!
