Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas!

I noticed that I never blog about Christmas, or even once. Please don't be misunderstanding. I never keep myself away from Christmas celebration. In fact I love this occasion very much especially seeing those busy preparing Christmas gift for their loved one, meanwhile give themselves a reason for shopping as there is always a Christmas crazy sale in town! :P

What stop me from blogging about Christmas? Time. I lack of time. (This always my good excuse? :P)

Prepare Christmas dinner menu
This year is the year I say goodbye to my singlehood, and be my darling's wife. There should be something different. No counting down in the crowd. No early restaurant reservation. No dinner dishes which cooked by famous chef. Yeap, simply 2 of us having the candle light dinner at..... HOME. I believe HOME is always the warmest. ^__^

Christmas Gathering/Party & Gift Exchange
Believe me, I never a lazy person in organizing a party, but I will never be the first one to kick off a party. =P Gathering is always a fun stuff in my life. From deciding on the food menu to picking up a lovely gift for exchange, it is totally precious! I am Do-It-Yourself person. I love to DIY something lovely and special for my guests (just like in my wedding). Time for me putting my DIY skill on this Christmas! ^___^

Christmas Decoration
Christmas tree is necessary in this occasion. This year we get ourselves a "giant" Christmas tree! At least it looks huge to me and my newly adopted Paddington bear from London. Hehehe.. Decorate it with pinky tree ornaments, as well as switch on the fairy lights.. Tada, please welcome my lovely Lady - Miss Pinky! should I name it this way? Hmm.. ="= "

"Snowing" effect
My country never snowing since I was born. But it is okay as i will make my house "snowing"!! ^___^ I believe my hubby will say that I am silly. Air conditioner & fans is the greatest creation for ONLY this moment. But I believe you will not think that it is as great as what I said when you receive your monthly electricity bill.. ="= Create lovely snow flakes on the glasses using the white and removable spray. Again I believe that you will never say they are lovely when you need to remove them.. =P

Last but not least, have yourself a Merry Christmas!

Cambodia Trip Day 2: Angkor Wat & Tonle Sap Lake

Finally I am able to update my blog again! Start my new life with someone. It is exciting part. By the way I discover that I should not just neglect this little blog as I noticed that getting many readers giving me supports. Thanks for encouragement you all have been given to me. I appreciate it very much. Will continue blogging without let you all down. ^___^
[8 October 2010]
Angkor Wat - my long awaiting destination. It looks so magnificient and amazing in the first sight. Heard from someone that the sunrise in Angkor Wat is the best. As a traveller, of course I will sacrifice my sleeping time and woke up at 4am just to capture a glimpse of sunlight in Angkor Wat. I believe it will be very breathtaking.
The sunlight paints the sky into golden yellow. Isn't it wonderful? Everything seems like just stop at this moment. So lovely and peaceful.
I am running out of vocabulary to describe this beauty nature. But I believe my pictures will be able to show you all how beautiful is it. Check it out. ^___^

I believe you will be very familiar to this place if you watched the movie "Tomb Raider" before. Yup, this place named as Ta Prohm. It is one of the famous temple in Angkor due to those photogenic and atmospheric of tree growing out of the ruins of temple.

Bayon - well known of its massive and serene of stone face.
After 11 hours walking up and down in Angkor Wat, we decided give ourselves a rest. The weather was super hot until we were very exhausted. After had our lunch, we headed back to hotel to take a rest. Around 5pm, we get ourselves for the next attraction in Siem Reap - Tonle Sap Lake.
The Tonle Sap lake is the largest fresh water lake in South-East Asia. One of unique feature is people used to living in floating village around the Tonle Sap lake. You can find a lot of facilities here such as floating clinic, floating house, floating mechanic shop, and even floating church.

At night we had our buffet dinner at restaurant. Surprisingly seeing many tourists gathered over here. The reason is we get to see traditional Khmer dance while having our dinner.

Angkor Wat is a place full of mystery and need a lot of time for exploring its creation. I think I need at least 3 days to exlore this place, but too bad tomorrow we have to continue our journey to Phnom Penh.
