Viet-Cambodia FoodTrip :-)

"In a world of disorder and disaster and fraud, sometimes only beauty can be trusted. Only artistic excellence is incorruptible. Pleasure cannot be bargained down. And sometimes the meal is the only currency that is real." - Liz Gilbert, Eat Pray Love
Trying out a grocery-bought ice cream in Cambodia
Ana's fave dish of the trip: shrimps drowning in cheeeseeee sauce! :D
My Vietnamese spring rolls: authentic yo! :D Had booboo at first coz they served me with chicken bits, but they agreed on replacing my dish with pure vegetables. :-) Really really good! :-)
Out of the 4 hotels we stayed in, breakfast buffet in Somadevi in Siem Reap Cambodia is the BEST! I love my salad and yogurt! :D

On our first night in Phnom Penh, we had dinner in the fanciest looking resto we passed by. Although they also serve local dishes, we opted the Western section of their menu. Maybe we missed pasta on our 4th day out of the country already! ;p  Mango shake: to join Ana's little quest of the trip: Sea…

From the Daily Kabbalah (May 30)

Sunday, May 30 Differences of opinion, challenging one another, this is how your relationships grow. Love is kindled through friction.

Today, it's OK if they don't agree with you, or vice versa. Find the grain of truth in their view, and know that there's no such thing as right or wrong.

world revolves around relationships

For me, that is.

For the world might be full of concerns and obstacles, but in the end, I guess my ultimate goal is to have good relationships with my family and friends. =) That's what I learned in The Feast for the past few times I have attended it. And also in all Bo Sanchez books I've read.

The theme for this Sunday was No Rush. To live in your now/the present. To savor every moment. To keep in mind that "Wherever you are, be there." so you wouldn't one day say "where did my life go?"
"We crucify ourselves between two thieves: Regret for yesterday and fear of tomorrow." - Fulton Oursler
And although with the topic, the speaker Arun Gogna said in his talk to "Deliberately take lots of vacations." To waste time with loved ones, and to put people first before things. I love this! :-) 
Venti Frap with my little sister Cea = also means putting time and money for her. =)

Angkor Wat Tour

Third day of our trip was spent in Angkor Wat, Siem Reap Cambodia. We alarmed really early, it was still dark outside, to catch the beautiful sunrise of this foreign country in a proper location...and basked in the heat for the rest of the day...touring the religious structures (by feet and by tuktuk), Khmer architectures, and temples of this Cambodia Must-See.  Angkor Wat = "City Temple".

(a favorite in this tour...climbing this unfinished temple, and being helped by a local to go up--and down! the steep stairs, while lecturing us with interesting trivia of the structure and the places near it.)

For Little Miss Geek like me, I enjoy a little history lessons, and culture-dipping once in a while. :-)
