I am finally BACK ! I am BACK blogging. Curse facebook and twitter for taking up my blogging time, LOL. Anyway i am back here to finish off my Cambodia entries with the second last entry which is basically the 2nd last day in Siem Reap. For some reason i think it was a bad idea shooting this particular shot in sepia cause it emphasizes how dirty the hands were.
If you didn’t already know, the egg looking thing in the plate my friend is the unborn ducky -_-!
This could very well be the main highlight for the whole year besides backpacking to Cambodia. Not only was i able to watch Man United live but was able to watch them in action twice !
This only happened because of the recent bombing in Jakarta at the hotel that the team would be staying during their stay there. Though Australia offered 1 million pounds for them to play down under but Sir Alex declined and ended up playing in Malaysia twice.
The crowd for the 2nd game wasn’t as much as the first game but nevertheless i still had fun watching with a bunch of crazy people.
It has been a while since i have updated my blog but trust me, i have tonnes to write and i am just waiting to get back to KL to do so. In Penang, i am always busy doing chores or busy sleeping >.<!
With Apple launching the new iPhone 3GS, Macbook Aluminium joins the MacBook Pro family and also Snow Leopard, my car too had an update. A safety update to be precise. After a few days without my car, i finally got the call from Perodua saying it’s finally ready !
This time around, i changed quite a number of things since it has just surpassed 180k km and the damage was slightly less than a thousand. On top of that, Perodua finally fitted my car with rear seatbelts
For those who have no idea what a zorb is, it basically the same as a hamster running in it’s plastic ball. The difference is, for us the ball is cushioned by air in the middle. The it’s to refrain hard impacts as we roll down the hill. To make things more exciting the participants are strapped on to the wall of the zorb. Thus as it roll down, so do you >.<!
If you are wondering why don’t the description match the picture above. That’s because it’s a water zorb. Water zorb is identical to a hamster ball.
Don’t be deceived with the photos because water zorbing is a waste of time and money. I will you why later.
So it was a bright Sunday morning and 26 people gathered in an excitement somewhere in Titiwangsa.
Now that my blog is finally UP Arghhhh for some reason this entry disappeared no thanks to the propogation delay -_-! Anyway i shall continue where i left on Phnom Penh. We were still on the Killing Fields and i didn’t feel all that confortable reading signs after signs indicating what had happened here during the Khmer Rouge. The cold breeze just made matters more eery than usual. This particular tree had a loudspeaker on it for a purpose …
… which is to drown the voices of the victims as they were executed in mass.
We later went into the building that stored all the remainings of the victims. Here’s William snapping with Angeline observing the skulls. I didn’t take any though I had to ration my memory card so that it could last me the whole trip which didn’t happened as i had to borrow 2Gb from Aaron.
Having barely 2 hours or so before our bus departs for Siem Reap, we rushed back.
Since we had time to spare, we roamed in Phnom Penh to find for lunch. We agreed to go to the Central market since it would be a good place to seek for food. But the thing is, the market in Phnom Penh isn’t exactly how we would see back here in Malaysia. The market was basically a market only, selling meat, vegetables, everyday utensils, previous stones, etc. There was no sign of hawker food, ROFL.
We left the market and walked to a few nearby mainroads.
We then came across this shop and i heard someone said, let’s have lunch here.
