We celebrated my husband’s birthday in Kep last month. It was a simple celebration with family enjoying a sumptuous seafood dinner and champagne for the toast. All these merriment and with the stunning sunset as our witness made my husband’s birthday a very a memorable milestone for the family.

Exactly three weeks ago today, my husband and I were on a riding holiday with our trusty Hagrid (Honda CB400). Kep (with a side-trip to nearby Kampot) was the second leg of the trip, the first being Siem Reap. We were joined by my father-in-law and my stepson who were visiting Cambodia. Fun times we had!

Monday Mellow Yellows: Good morning, Vietnam!

Ho Chi Minh City is a delightful place to go to. There is so much happening in every direction that you’ll surely miss a thing when you blink. The sea of motorists – and the sound of the horns – is just overwhelming.

However, robbery/snatching is a major dampener to a tourists visiting there! So please, please, be very careful when going there. Leave your valuables at the hotel. Don’t trot around with your fancy phones and camera. Take it from me. It happened to me ten years ago when I first went there. It happened again to my friend on our visit last month. Apparently, some things never change 🙁

Our World Tuesday: Ruins

Millions of visitors flock to Cambodia to see the world-renowned Angkor Wat. Expect the Big Three temples – Angkor Wat, Bayon Temple, and Ta Prohm – to be overcrowded. Unknown to many, there are other temples that are not in most tour itineraries, like this one:

A lesser-known temple inside Angkor Wat archaeological complex in Siem Reap.

A lesser-known temple inside Angkor Wat archaeological complex in Siem Reap.

The name of the temple escapes me now (will post the name as soon as I find my notes). It is not well-known as it is often left off the routes of arranged tours. It is just a small temple with some parts were partially collapsed and other areas  in relatively good condition. However, at the time of our visit, it was closed for restoration work (hence the fences) and we could only see the facade but not inside the temple. As you can see, there was nobody else in sight when we visited (just me and my husband).

Update: The temple is called Baphuon, a three-tiered temple dedicated to Shiva and is “next door” to Bayon Temple. Both temples are found inside Angkor Thom.
