So yea, i went to send Peter off today as he leaves for Africa. Went to his place and helped pack his stuff first. Darn the chicken rice downstairs his place rocks man! It looks kinda rundown and all... but damn it taste so good. Actually i didnt really helped him packed lah. I was pretty much playing with his Macbook and reading his 11 pgs case-study project eassy as he packed by himself. Hahaha.
And i made this litteblackbookfilledwithphotos for him as a farewell gift. It's called The Peter's Pictionary. All the pictures that i have, starring Peter Yang and *ahem* US. Knowing that an Uncle like him doesnt keep photos at all, this DIY photo album will be perfect for him. =) Called a cab and head down to Changi Airport. Checked in early and had coffee and Kettle chips. He was entertaining me with all his drunk friends stories. Hilarious.
Meeting Peter was probably the most random thing that has ever happen to me. And i'm reeeeally glad we met. Peter was asking me the other day, what if we never talked in Cambodia at all? Well, then none of these would have happened and i wont have such a cool friend! C'mon... Uncle Peter Yang is like +10years my age but we get along so well! Aint that cool?! Okay we do have a teeny-weeny bit of generation gap sometimes and it's really funny. Muahahhaha!
Cat with the biggest heart... and the craziest girl i've ever known. That's why we love you!
Shirley Lee! The cleverest of them all...
Toldya he's gay. I promised him not to publish this pic... but whatever. Muahaha! The Morgan nightie that we bought. It's expensive y'all.... $129! Glad that she loved it alot... *ahem* and her boyfriend too.
The Twin's birthday. Happy 21st to Anne and Ruby!
Us @ Graduation 2006. Us @ Anne's 21st 2007.
We haven changed much have we? Well i had a really bad hair day on Grad, Cat has become more chubbier, Shirley more radiant (the power of love...), Anne a more mature lady. I guess we still pretty much stayed the same! Though it was just a few hours with them, i felt really happy and relaxed when they are around. I am at my most comfortable self when i'm with them. You dont know who i am and you probably dont even care. But for them, they know me better than i know myself...
It's always so hard to meet up, everyone's busy with work/school/army. But when we do meet up, we never felt far. omg this is so emo! Flashback on poly days of how we share tu-tu cakes, mua chee, curry yong tao hu, walking bare-footed in library, laughed/cried, always side-tracking from project discussions, lionel/james... I'm telling you Poly times were the best days of my life. Met the world's best friends and we will grow old together. Just like The Golden Girls...
ok maybe The Golden Girls is a little bit too old?
probably Desperate Housewives.
yea i'm sure Desperate Housewives works better.... =)
Peter's leaving on Wed! Giving him a farewell tmr night at Arab Street. Be back for more pics.
The Lunch Kahkis. We're missing Susan though. Probably will organize another game session at my place next Saturday or sth when Susan is back.
One laaaaaast thing. Happy 21st Anne! I think you're the first among us to turn 21. All my warmest well wishes to our most hardworking, most questions asked, most knowledge, most funniest project mate. My 3 years poly life could never be any more fun w/o you. See you at ur party lateeeer! Alright that's pretty much all that has happened this week.
Happy CNY everyone. =)
That's Richard. Our tour guide.
Having breakfast at the balcony outside our room. I wish i can have breakfast there every morning man. Food jus taste so good with the sunshine n all....
The Balcony right outside our room. I was just sitting there, reading my book, plugging into the ipod... Life's good. It's like there's nothing in your blank mind but you're missing something. Strange aye.
The Irish Pub downstairs of our guesthouse. Remember it's Molly Malone! I'm so going back there to stay again.
At The Soup Dragon. Some restaurant with food so horrible we didnt even touch it.....
Ok maybe we did.... Just a few spoonfuls.
I love this place. The Blue Pumkin. This chill-out place with unique ice-cream flavors, gummies, pastries, free wireless internet, lovely white sofa seats... Just sit back, lie down or do whatever you want and reeeest. I had caramel ice cream though. It's nice, i think he'll like it too...
Nightfall. After dinner/drinking with Peter and Sarah, we decided to go back to our balcony and drink instead. Bubbble Tea in Cambodia is so goooood!
At the back : Jonas, George, Peter. While we were sitting around chatting, i barely spoke loh. I dunno what to say! I dont even understand what they were talking about. Like history of Mexico and stuff.... omfg. They are really smart people man... Or i'm too stupid.... Ahh either way lah. This was the last pic in Cambodia. Good job my dear camera....
Sooooo it's the EVE OF CHINESE NEW YEAR! Have fun people! Gong Xi Fa Cai. Huat ah! Collect as many angbaos as you can. Good Luck in this coming Pig Year...
love y'all. =)
Me. She-Reen. John.Peter
wathefug... and the drinks taste like fruit punch loh. the alcohol contentwas so little i could barely taste it. didnt really enjoyed myself there and it wasnt worth it at all. My reviews : 6/10. Just check it out for fun lah. And remember to bring enough money.
We left the place and head over to Brewerkz instead. We order a tower of wheat beer and nachos. The tower is huge! It's 4000ML and holds 7 glasses of beer... Placed between Peter and I, cannot even see him loh! I have to like move forward a little when we talked. So this Filipino waitress took our order right... she was like,
Scrapbook's untouched.I'm totally not in the right state of mind at all. Focus!Okay Day 3 was so much fun laughing our way down the hill! We laughed so hard that we could just roll down instead. It's gonna be so much faster. Thanks to our guide... *i gave her my heart but she kicked it away* muahahah! i know it doesnt sounds funny to you guys at all, but a sentence like that coming out of our super stiff n shy Richard... it's hilarious. After he said that, he just walked faster and left us behind! He must be feeling super emo and starts to cry..... awww man! We're so evil.
This swing is like made out of the twines of the tree.
After so many years of water flowing down the stones, the figures are still not washed off at all...
A small waterfall. The water is so clear n cold.
We were eating cookies and we gave some to the children. They took with both hands, bow their head and thanked you. So well-mannered right! They were actually collecting empty cans or bottles that tourist left behind in order to earn some money for school. The youngest girl is probably 4/5 years old only...
See the purple socks i'm wearing? Susan bought it for me! It's super light n comforty. Nvm the colour purple, as long as it's comfortable. Suzie rocks my socks! =) And my shoes is so dirrrrty..... I must say the cravings in this temples seems so real.
Day 3 ended really early...
Okay i'm gonna make this paragraph really small just in case my parents read this. After we went back to town, we started looking for other places to stay. Cos our package was only a 3 night stay at the hotel. But we were there for 5 nights. We went around looking for guesthouses! Most are on full house or it's too sleazy to stay in. Lucky we found a place to stay. In fact we should have stayed there in the first place. It's called the Molly Malone Guesthouse and Irish Pub. For USD25/per night, you get a room furnished with hand-crafted wood, including a beautiful 4-poster beds!! Shhh.... Dont tell them we stayed in a guesthouse. They will killed me man!
Mygod. Pub Street... The ultimate nightlife in Siem Reap. I'll tell you more later.
Let's go to Day 4 now. We went to Tonle Sap Lake. The largest lake in South-East Asia.
This Secondary School moveees from one side of the river to another.
We were in the boat and it stop for a while as it approaches the water village. This little sampan here started paddling quickly to the side of our boat. They seem like a family selling drinks n banana for living.
I was listening to Richard and i didnt really take notice of them when they ask us to buy drinks. Until his boy climbed beside me, i cannot take it man. He's staring at me with those eyes. My heart sank. He was so small and all i can hear from him was the word 1... USD$1 for the drinks. I wanna cry!! I have to buy from him and i dont even drink Coke at all. I gave it to another boy.
He's paddling in a bathtub.
and OMG... they rear crocs! It's super scary.
The village behind. And the clear blue skies.... I just cant help falling in love with the sky!
That's about all the pics for the tour. The other 2 days are all just random pics from Pub Street, fellow travellers we met, restaurants n stuffs. I'll post them up some. Some nicer ones are with my cousin. Have yet to get from her though. Will post up soon.
Man i've been blogging for the past 3 days! Like everyday i reach home, i'm infront of my laptop, blogging abt the trip. I think i have no one to talk to and i'm starting to talk to my lappy. Ohno~
Alright i'm really tired....
