Cambodia, Cambodia.

It’s been a long time since I’ve brought up the subject – this wonderful land rich in history and beautiful people. Since I don’t have the time to write lengthy blogs, I’ll leave my photos to do the talking.

On the way to the airport. It was barely even dawn.

The sun peeks through. I was experimenting with my new camera.

At the edge of our island!

In Social Studies and from textbooks, we’ve constantly been told that Singapore had thrived from its port industry. Only after seeing this sight – ships, densely dotting the sea – did this realization really sink in.

My entertainment. (PS. Read the book. Didn’t get the whole damn thing. But it was weird to the extent of being good?)

My lunch – cheese omelette with mushrooms, sausage and vegetables in tomato sauce. It would have been good if I wasn’t so full already ):

More cotton candy.

Fish Amok – basically just fish with green curry in a young coconut.DSC_4953

Dog feeling as sunburnt as I am. It was ridiculously hot in Cambodia.

Cambodia has, hands down, the coolest trees in the world.DSC_4974 DSC_4980

This tree has a golden appearance for some reason. And this is the temple that has been enveloped by trees.DSC_4982 DSC_4988

The tree literally grew out of the temple. DSC_4991

Me looking like a weirdo. DSC_5050 DSC_5059 DSC_5083

The tree’s kinda like, “No! Back off. Temple, MINE.”DSC_5088

Tour guide being weird.DSC_5172

The steps were steep as hell.DSC_5191 So that basically concluded my Day One! I had some night activities as well, but they were in another camera, so I will upload them sooner or later. I really love Cambodia so much, ugh. I wanna squish it, and hug it and never let it go.
