After we got back from London, we decided to celebrate our Anniversary in Siem Reap, Cambodia (also cause it was cheaper) lol
The very very very huge Angkor Wat temples
The temple tree
More temple trees
The piggies that roam freely around the temple home grounds
We stayed in a town near the Angkor Wat temples. The hotel was really old and creepy. Kinda like a scary 1950’s mansion.
We roamed around Pub Street and the Night Markets. Tuk tuks cost USD$2 per ride. Convenient and efficient. Unlike Malaysia lol.
The Street Market.
They’ve got great ice cream and yoghurt desserts
Love the khmer food. You can’t find these kinda food anywhere in the world. They are so underrated..
Spicy Khmer Soup
Salted Fish Minced Pork
Roasted Aubergine and Blanched Morning Glory
Stir fry Chilly cockles
Stir Fry Green Pepper Squid
Lucky Burger (Khmer Fast Food) Roasted Drummets
Khmer Tom Yum
We celebrated our anniversary dinner at The Khmer Touch Cuisine! Yums!
Pork Sour Soup
Lok Lak (beef)
Stir Fry Kale
On the second day, we decided to go for french food since Cambodia was heavily influenced by the French; we were expecting for some good ol’ cuisine française . The french restaurant we chose is called La Cabane La Cuisine des Filles (next to a Buddhist temple in town)
Sausages and salad (can’t remember the name lol) Not great!
Pork Chops (not too bad! slightly raw)
Last but not least… a picture of us in front of Angkor Wat!
It’s Krabi time!
The Breakfast was so yummeh!
At the Phranang Island. Beautiful caves and crystal clear water.
Phranang is also known as the Penis Cave. If you want to get pregnant, pray to the penis lol
You can’t go wrong with thai tom yum
Delicious mango salad.
Beef & Pea stew
And more food..
My Robin snorkelling
The beach side walk
And my friend snoozing in our hotel room
Loved everything about Krabi. Unfortunately, the trip ended with me having severe food poisoning. I spent my last day in the toilet pooing and vomiting at the same time. It was really awful. I was afraid that I wouldn’t make it to my flight and had to go to the hospital. But somehow I manage to fly back to KL feeling really sick. I thought back about the foods I ate and I am pointing my finger at the cold mango slushie I had. DO NOT BUY ICED DRINKS from any street vendors. Lesson learnt!
The highlight of 2015 was probably my sister’s wedding. The first to get married off! The wedding was cut into 2 parts. First in Bali and another in Malaysia for the family and whoever couldn’t go to Bali.
The wedding lasted a mere 2 days of eating and prepping. The day of the vows, we were all drenched in sweat and melting makeup. lol. By the time the night fell upon us, I was drowning in my sweat, stinky armpits and terrible makeup. We lost our appetites because it was so tiresome though the food was not bad.
We stayed and celebrated at The Four Seasons Hotel.
We had a private villa to ourselves and the villa is divided into multiple open concept rooms. The dining and lounge room were located outside of the bedroom. There was also a small private pool or dip pool complete with deck chairs which overlooked the Jimbaran ocean.
I was quite disappointed I never got the time to enjoy the hotel or Bali because we were half rushing the wedding preparations. Four Seasons is a great place for couples, honeymoon and even by yourself. lol. Might come back for the waves next time.
Our lovely private villa!
Then the second part of the wedding was with our family. We call it the ‘cham cha’ session. Including a dinner and exchange of ang paos. I was too busy taking care of my boyfriend and didn’t have the time to really take proper photos hence no photos to show for! lol…
One of the most beautiful islands in the world. Definitely going back there again. Pricey but worth it!
“One of the Islands in Boracay”
“Bangka Boat anchor”
“My rented bangka boat”
“Crystal Cove Island”
“My mom swimming!”
“Pinoy breakfast consist of beef, eggs and fragrant garlic rice”
“Lobster to bbq bought from the wet market”
“in the seafood goes”
“sinful cholesterol dinner”
“this is pork adobo”
“typhoon glenda approaching”
Unfortunately, our Boracay trip ended with Glenda Typhoon. We were stuck in our rooms for 2 days as the tide was rising and heavy rains poured throughout the day. All boating activities ceased and airports were shut down. What’s worst, the entire island was on blackout. But it was an experience never to be forgotten. A first for my mom. lol.
