Cambodia, Siem Reap

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

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.

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 fran├žaise . The french restaurant we chose is called┬áLa Cabane La Cuisine des Filles (next to a Buddhist temple in town)

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

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!

Sister’s Wedding

The Wedding

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…

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.
