Cambodia

As I write this post, my heart gets heavier by the word. A trip so sweet yet so short, so fulfilling yet capable of leaving one feel so hollow. 3 days is surprisingly more than enough to discover Siem Reap but when it’s time to head home, the thought of spending a whole month at the ruins doing absolutely nothing grabs you by the mind; making you think thrice if […]

Fashion
Baphuon Temple

This merely qualifies as a ‘fashion’ post (open inverted commas absolutely necessary) but I’d classified as such, since you won’t see me often dressed like that. A blog reader Cinner recently asked me if I was for real – Can you be dressed in shorts and sans sleeves when visiting the holy temples? That is a very good question indeed! There are certain areas in the Angkors that require you […]

Mirrors of Reality

A major part of traveling at Cambodia is about exploring the side of humanity that exists within one’s self. Every day that I was there, I made an effort to remind and allow myself to get as close as I could with every single living soul – the people (locals and foreigners alike), animals mammals, and even plants; just to realize that something as simple as that requires opening up many […]

Ta Prohm

When you think of Cambodia, perhaps you first imagine a bygone world patched with poverty; a country you could save as one of the lasts to visit – why hurry? However, if you do go there, especially to Ta Prohm, you start asking yourself: where have I been all this while?! In other words, where can you find an ancient tree growing on a roof, a tree trunk the shape […]

Angkor

There are many temples to discover within the Khmer Empire ruins; you probably need a month to throughly visit them all! Unless you are an archaeologist, realistically, one would dedicate one full day to explore the Angkor (city). In this post I’ve compiled the important spots to cover (in bold), and also what to look out for while at the spot itself (underlined). You may also find the cost breakdown […]

Siem Reap II

We lodged at a cozy place opposite the most beautiful brown river named Rosy Guesthouse. i’ve seen so many good comments about it on TripAdvisor that i couldn’t help but notice. Personally, i think it fits the description pretty well – it’s rosy, and good! Here’s a glimpse of how it looks like: {don’t overlook : the little white signboard} {the tranquil alley on the way upstairs} {my clean and […]

Travel
Siem Reap

i’ve always wanted to visit Cambodia but my interest lies heavily in Siem Reap, not its capital, Phnom Penh. i had been dreaming to experience it so badly, and luckily it is a dream easy to achieve. The hardest part was to convince, as speaking from experience – people would rather save the little money they have for a trip to a bigger country like Japan. But you know what, it’s […]
