My home is on Kerta Dalem Road, in Denpasar city. From the campus of UNUD it’s not far. I ride my motorbike to campus in only 15 minutes. Next to my home there’s a small shop and a warung (little restaurant).

My home has a swimming pool. This swimming pool is in front of the living room. In the living room there are many chairs and tables, and there’s also a sofa, fridge, and TV. Near the living room there are many trees, but there are no flowers.

The kitchen is to the left of the living room. My kitchen is really small, it only has a stove. In front of the kitchen is the parking area.

My room has two floors. On the first floor there’s a sofa, two tables, a chair, and a small fridge. The first floor is the living room. Behind the living room is the bathroom.

The second floor is the bedroom. In the bedroom there’s a bed, a table, two wardrobes, and a TV. I really like my room!
