Story behind every picture

There is always a story behind each picture but does it really portrait the real story? Maybe eventually, it’s just how we view ourselves?


Location: Cambodia, Siem Reap, Angkor Wat

First Impression: Cute and friendly little girls. 🙂

Reality: These little girls follow me round the temple despite me rejecting their offer. They wanted me to take their pictures and pay them US$1 in exchange. After rejecting their offer, they kept following me and ask “Why, Why, Why?”


Location: Laos, Xieng Khouang, One of the village that produce rice wine

First Impression: A humble kind granny that have a great smile. 🙂

Reality: Just like the description above.

Travel Perspective of Individual

Today my Swedish manager and his counterparts was chatting about their weekend getaway to Taiwan, Taipei. It was kinda of strange to hear what they likes and dislikes about this getaway, some of which i agreed while some i don’t. They loved Taiwanese people friendliness yet hated stinky tofu and hot spring. One of them even told me that he preferred to soak in cold water rather than in a hot spring.

Whenever i reached a new destination, i like to experience things local eat and do. That’s me. I got to agree that i don’t like urban area(city) coz i am already living within one. I loved mother nature. It make me feel so small and insignificant. Time seems to stay put at that particular moment, just me and the nice scenic view which i can’t seem to capture using my camera. Just thinking of it right now, it’s making me want to experience that feeling once again.

Enough talking. Let the picture do the talking. 🙂
