About lani

Lani is an ex-Real Estate agent who has discovered that life does indeed exist beyond the borders of Sydney's Northern Beaches. (inside joke) After spending a decade contorting her poor toes into squished mutant shapes, she decided she would kick off her heels in search of any job that had her walking the streets barefoot. Fast forward four years and she has her feet firmly planted on the ground in Canggu. She now finds herself somewhat of a crazy cat lady, with tiny orphans crossing her path more often than her little heart can bare. Lani, her famous Bengal tiger-leopard-cat, her bazillion fur foster babies and her one Indonesian Bae are living happily ever after in Pererenan - where she spends her AMs scooting around to live report on everything that's going down in the Gu, and her PMs sharing it all to Gu Guide - shaking kittens off her arms as she types. This is a girl of balance. Balancing beers with box fit classes, stress with surf sessions, margaritas with mindfulness, cakes with kundalini yoga.. And so is life in Canggu. It was hard work that had her earn her title as GUru of the GU - she's road-tested every pussy accupressure & steaming treatment known to Canggu, she's tasted every cocktail, she's crashed a segway riding through the rice fields.. Nothing is sacred or secret to miss Lani. Keep up with the Cangg-ashians, with the help of this lady in the know. Got something Guey for our GG gossip girl? < Send to [email protected] XOXO

New hipster hangouts sprouted like magic mushrooms during wet season, and things got a little extra (we’re looking at […]

YOU KNOW YOU ARE IN CANGGU WHEN..

  Canggu is arguably becoming one of Bali’s most progressive and culturally fascinating areas. Your mum will liken it to “how she remembers Legian in the 80s”, and you will hopefully never liken it to “the new Seminyak” Yuck. Having really only found its name on the tourism map over the past few years, Canggu […]
