Chinese New Year is almost over now. This year's holiday is rather boring, no? You know how people like to gather and play card games during Chinese New Year. I hate card games, but to some, Chinese New Year is all about playing card games, so instead of going to people's place and watch them play, I stayed home. And, since I have nothing much to do at home, I ate like no one's business. Strange though, I did not put on any extra weight.
I went on a trip to Cambodia with a bunch of friends, just before Chinese New Year. It's very much different from what I had expected, especially the weather. It's always cooling there. Their traffic system, is different from ours. I took a while to adjust to their left-hand side driving. Traffic is chaotic, and they really just cross the roads, and the number of honks one driver do in a day, is more than the number of honks I did since I 1st touched a car, and I think more than I would ever do in a lifetime. They honk at almost every car. Perhaps it's like a greeting? Or it's to alert the others of their presence?
Pictures time! Just a few that I shot during Day One of the trip - Phnom Penh.
Our first meal in Cambodia, is Khmer food, in a rather expensive shop - Khmer Saravan if not mistaken.
Amok Fish. Amok is a very tasty curry-type food. I love curry!
It's a fish soup, so it tastes like the teo-chew-steamed-fish's sauce.
After dinner, we walked around town and shot pictures of almost everything. Also during this time, five out of seven of us complained about the cold temperature.
While our photo-shooting session, we noticed many people staring at us. It got worse when we lined up the cameras and flashes to shoot a group photo. Maybe it's because all 7 of us carried DSLRs.
And then, it was snack-time. What kind of snacks do they have? We spotted a shop and went to check it out.
Oh yeah! They sell quite a lot of stuff, sea-crawlers, creepy-crawlies.
This is a Tarantula spider, fried? It tastes better than I thought, kind of like dried meat. Click on the link for more info on dried meat.
We also ate crickets. I forgot to try their snakes, couldn't find scorpions. What a waste. Anyway, this blog-post ends here. Until the next update, have a good day!
