Day 2 (Part2): Siem Reap July 5th, 2015

There has been 8 months hiatus from here. To be honest, I spend most of the time on Instagram, and nowhere else haha. Nothing changed, except that I went to India twice for work, once to US for family related reason, and that's it. Everything else seems to be the same old stuff. Friends gotten married, haha.
It's the perfect spot to do that jump, right after we have done with Angkor Wat. This is the place we should all visit once in a lifetime since that it's slowly falling off.

This is the second most famous Khmer temple. Bayon. In fact, this is more impressive, like how on Earth people from those days build a temple like that?

That's the back of it

This is very famous among those that watch Hollywood movies because this was where Angelina Jolie shot her Tomb Raider movie. It's called Ta Prohm with super gigantic tree branch.

Then, since it was Dede's birthday, the Cambodians do this, visit the temple. Get blessing from the monk. I felt like a total noob, I don't know what should I do when the monk was chanting.

As we were moving along, we came across this. That's our Cambodian friend who became our tour guide too haha. The unlicensed tour guide.

That's how it looks like from where we were standing. There are quite a few flights of stairs to climb.

Finally, the day of walking, and burning is over. It's about time to enjoy a good meal with a beer. That's what a holiday is all about, right? Forget your diet, forget your work and everything else. Not like we had any diets in KL. haha. We were there to enjoy.

Day 2 (Part1): Siem Reap July 5th, 2015

After such a long hiatus, it's about time the Siem Reap's photos should be up.

So, after yesterday's circus, which was still very fresh in my mind when I woke up, we had to go to the next itinerary. It's the sun rise in Angkor Wat. I mean, that's the whole purpose we were there right.

How can you not love this place? It's such a beauty.

So, everyone else did the same. Woke up at 4 ish to wait for the sun rise. Not cool. But anyways. haha. I don't even get up this early to work.

Tadaaa the egg yolk has finally showed itself. It is around mid March to end up March, the sun is aligned right above the Angkor Wat. But, that's also the reason why during that time, everyone would be there for the same reason. Siem Reap will be packed.
Finally, the sun is shining up above us. It's time to go home, not. It's time to get into Angkor Wat. The main temple. Get ready for lots and lots of walking to do under the hot sun.

Things are so much easier when you have a local friend to bring you around. Trust me, it's way easier. Just that, didn't think that we'll be meeting in Siem Reap. haha.

See, the Angkor Wat and the temples around there has been there for eons. There was no concrete evidence on the history. It's all based on beliefs. Probably, it's time to make a trip there before all their stones fall, like the picture above. One by one, it's falling.

That's actually a pool during the olden days. Before us, there was a photoshoot session. OMG seriously you people.
