Sydney, Australia (14 – 21 May 2018) – Day 1 & 2

“Since you’re unemployed and I am unemployed, why not visit me in Australia…”

Those were the words that my buddy from primary school; Keanu triggered me to visit him in Kangaroo Land.

14 May: As for starter, I found this pussycat’s car in Aussie…

Sydney, Australia (14 – 21 May 2018) – Day 3

16 May 2018: Today, we were on the road trip from Sydney to Wollongong. I did not know that Australia has such beautiful beaches. The sea is so blue, the wave is so strong (no wonder they like to surf). The sun is bright and hot but the cold wind literally blew the hotness away. The sand is clean, by the way Australian really took care of their environment! Salute!

Helensburgh, Australia

I was so excited that I forgot to take photo of the beautiful view and had to put this photo of me with the view instead.

20180516_121946.jpg

Check out the view behind me! Magnificent!

Siem Reap, Cambodia (Soul Searching) 22-Nov-2017 – Day 01

Not like any other trip before, this was a spiritual trip for me. Trying to get back to reality of life before it took away my senses.

Day 01 – Landed in Siem Reap airport. Taking a tut-tut ride is at least one-time MUST in Cambodia. Experiencing tasting the dust on our face and mouth.

Tips While you are booking your hotel online, you can asked for the hotel to arrange pick-up. you can save about US$5 here!

20171121_151722

Tut-tut

If you ask me about ONE advise, I would say be cautious of  what you eat. Please be very cautious of the food consumed, especially those street foods. It might look delicious but the hygiene are questionable. Bring along some medicine just in case you contracted food poisoning.

If it is not getting any better, please go to the “reputable” hospital. Don’t think about the money you are going to save.

This kind of old fashion market hardly can be found in the city. Most likely, next 30 years these kind of markets will no longer existed.

La Plantation, Kampot, Cambodia (11-06-2016)

If you like nature, you should visit pepper farm; La Plantation in Kampot, Cambodia. It is about three hours drives from Phnom Penh to Kampot. The road can be bumpy.

20160611_132956

They do have a guide who speak good English to tell you about organic pepper farm.
