Re: PARADISE IN BALI 14 & 15 NOV @ GWK(Lotus Pond)

I was disappointed with the change in venue and the change to a night time set up, because it just felt like a normal club. With a pool. And smoking allowed everywhere. And cheap beer. And undrinkable tap water. But overall I had fun. Mokoto was the best of show. Ragga Twins were fun, but they're be...
