American musician John Legend and his wife, presenter-model Chrissy Teigen, who are on a family holiday in Bali, were jolted by the recent 6.9-magnitude quake in the neighbouring island of Lombok on Sunday (Aug 5), with Teigen documenting the terrifying experience on Twitter. 

The pair, along with children Luna and Miles, have been vacationing on the Indonesian island, sharing some of their memorable moments on social media.

In a series of tweets, Teigen described experiencing up to eight aftershocks, but posted that everyone in her family was safe.

The major earthquake has reportedly killed 82 people and wounded hundreds, said Indonesia's national disaster agency.

Before this, photos and videos of Teigen and her family's vacation have been shared on social media by Indonesians the past week, with several netizens calling them honest and refreshing.

Legend took a photo in front of a cafe called The Legend Cafe, while Teigen shared an encounter with a "bug", being enrolled in a cooking class and learning the Indonesian way of fashioning a baby sling.

Their most recent adventure on Saturday night took them to Jaya Fried Chicken (JFC), a local fast food joint, after a seemingly fancy dinner. Along with posting a view of the line to the cashiers to Instagram Stories, Teigen posted a video of her enthusiastically chanting "JFC" on the way to the restaurant, pictures of JFC's menu and herself posing in front of a birthday decor.

In one video, Legend crooned an impromptu song to Teigen: "Isn't it romantic, going to JFC, together? So romantic."

Twitter user @Raesaka wrote, "Witnessing how humble John Legend and his family [are] in Bali, going to a modest fast food restaurant and buying their daughter toys in an inexpensive toy store. While he's in Indonesia, it seems fitting if he was appointed as a vice-presidential candidate."

Another user by the name of @NicoNovito wrote that "Chrissy Teigen and John spending their Saturday night at JFC is definitely the highlight of their Bali adventure".

Legend and Teigen also visited Bali in July last year, sharing photos of them donning traditional Balinese costumes as well as practicing acroyoga.
