Upcoming event: Vipassana Meditation Retreat

Coming wednesday i'll be going to somewhere near Kuantan for Vipassana meditation retreat... full 10 days of meditations, that would be something new and definitely a challenge for me. i'm looking forward to the experience and possibly inner peace.

so, see you guys next year! an early Merry Christmas and Happy New Year greeting to all. :)

This year i have had a crazy traveling year... so this post is to summarize my trips in 2009:

Experienced the street party at Pub Street, Siem Reap! Full of people... but it's super fun!

Totally enjoyed myself dancing 2 hours nonstop, drinking long island ice tea from a bucket, and totally wasted! :D

But of course the main purpose is to see this 7 wonders of the world - Angkor Wat. love it!!!

Took the boat from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh and chatted with this swedish guy. Nice tatts!
