Cute Monkeys in Monkey Forest, Ubud

monkey galau

Monkey Forest is the most impressive and memorable place that I visited when I traveled to Bali last December 2013. Located in Ubud, it’s a sanctuary for monkeys which originally live in the surrounding area for ages. There are so many cute and funny monkeys, and it was the first time I got so close to them. Look at the picture above, it’s funny, isn’t it?

I love the expression of the monkey. It looked upset, I think. Or maybe it was feeling a bit lonely. But whatever it felt, when I saw it in front of Pura Padang Tegal, the temple inside the Monkey Forest, it reminded me to this anonymous quote;

“The most difficult phase of life is not when no one understand you, it is when you don’t understand yourself.”

How do you think? 😀

    I think the monkey, or monyet, looks sad. I think it’s hungry and wants a banana! I LOVE monkeys, so seeing your monkey post by chance today put a smile on my face! 🙂

      Hahaha… it called ‘Monyet Galau’ in bahasa Indonesia. But you don’t be afraid, they won’t bother you as long as you don’t disturb them. 😉
