Malaysia 2014: George Town, Penang

Travel

It was a very tedious ride from Bangkok to Butterworth, Penang. We were on that train for literally, 23 hours! But what was worse was that we went 40 hours without a shower! Gross, I know. Let me narrate it to you.

CAMBODIA 2014: Siem Reap

Travel

Like I said in my previous blog, our trip to Siem Reap was such an ordeal, that’s because we were ripped-off.

CAMBODIA 2014: Phnom Penh

Travel
Before leaving Saigon, we already booked our land transfers to Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, and then to Bangkok, as we would only be spending at least a day in each of the Cambodian cities. The bus fetched us at the hotel around 8am. We also picked-up some tourists that would be taking the trip with us.

INDOCHINA 2014: Of buses, planes, and trains.

Travel

About a year before my parents’ silver wedding anniversary in October of 2014, we were thinking of ways to celebrate. Should we have a banquet with dear family and friends? Or should we just travel instead? Until we finally agreed on the latter. We figured, the budget we would set aside for a banquet would do much more if we traveled. But credits to me as I was the one who insisted on traveling. And since I was the mastermind, I also had the upper hand in choosing the destination. But much of the pressure was on me as I should do much of the research, and plan out the whole itinerary.
