Hi I’m Niluh. I was born and raised in Bali. Now I work as an accountant, but funnily enough, my hobbies are nowhere close to dealing boring numbers. My hobbies include gardening and shopping at traditional markets. I am very happy to see fresh vegetables, fruits, and flowers in these markets and I also find the transactions and exchanges very fascinating. Other than that, I enjoy embroidery and knitting, so much that I dedicated an instagram account for these hobbies called @mimpiby.niluh. This account is not only an instagram account for my passion in embroidery and knitting, but also for other little things that I’ve always wanted to do. I hope that these little things that make me happy can be useful for others and make them happy too.
