Pictures for day 1...leave ur prints!

totally enjoyed the trip.. except for the dreadful winding journey up / down Camerons.. left my packet of strawberry in another car .. took pictures with the tea & sky... stayed inside the tea plantation with no mobile coverage whatsoever.. living with the worms.. learnt how to play 'bridge'... confirmed I'm bad at drawing.. .. found out I'm not the most paranoid person alive...had lotsa photoshoot opportunity!

rating : would I come back again? only to bring my mom along..

You must know, some of the 'sampat' stuff that I could do, which is to edit some these pictures.. and then I sent for print. The output of the 8R-size panoramic printout was soo amazing to me this is truly one syiok sendiri incident... too bad printing is really expensive... else i'd love to print out alot more copies, have my signature pendown and give it to my friends! awww.... *how sweet*.. see how crazy I get?!

The Cambodian food not spicy at all, but rather sweet and they like santan (coconut) mix with curry and even tomyam. The 'asam laksa' that tried is not at all spicy, and taste weird.

Well, just as we all know how poor they are, the chicken, prawn, duck.. are all very skinny... the cow in the farm and the stray dogs are all skinny.. looking around, hmm there's no fat people! It's great in a way, they eat healthy food?! Cos there's no McD at all, I was suggesting to my tourguide (who's very enterprising) to get a McD license to open the first McD here

In a typical traditional Cambodia meal, they have 'salted fish paste' + rice + ulam (raw vege / Malay style) + roast chicken. Like Malay style, we had to sit on the ground to eat.

Have you tried santan icecream? It's completely white in colour, I thought it was vanilla since it was milky.. but its made of coconut!

The purpose of this morning excursion is to have a feel of what's it like living in a floating village. Our Khmer guide was quick to comment that there's a minor population of Vietnamese refugees .. but its impossible for me to identify who's Viet and who's Khmer. According to my tourguide (Tim), the language spoken is different, so its easy to know.

Anyway.. I cannot imagine myself living in this village, so there..
