Spotted Chairman Mao at bubble tea shop – Koi Cambodia. Where? Their branch in Mao Tse Tung Blvd. That wall decal is quite cool, noh? Koi Cambodia is massively popular with the younger set here. My daughter loves it, I’m starting to wonder if there is some potion in there. It tastes quite good though. […]
I love the blog post title. Wat Walls. Snapshot of the very ornate walls of Wat Ounalom. Wats (Pagodas) here in Cambodia usually have really heavily decorated walls. One thing that I find beautiful and extra fascinating when visiting wats. This is an entry to my Cambodia Snapshots series as well as Wordless Wednesday and […]

Usual lamp posts you can see on Phnom Penh parks. I kinda like it, its ornate, so lavish. I feel like I’m in Europe when I see this. This photo was taken in the park in front of the Royal Palace and Sisowath Quay. I think they’ll be repainting these posts soon. Some posts on […]
As an old French colony, Cambodia and Phnom Penh has its fair share of beautiful French style buildings. But this one is my favorite. I know its an abandoned building and badly neglected but to me that gives it a different sort of appeal. I’m thinking ghosts and vampires whenever I see it. But, it […]
My personal nickname for this place: The Flag Gallery. Along riverfront,Sisowath Quay…The whole riverside stretch is lined with flags of different countries. My daughter likes walking along this place and guessing which country each flag belongs to.. This is also an entry for my Cambodia Snapshot series and Scenic Sunday.
