So free !!..reach the level of boredom !!!

Hi there...

hi there everyone..each and everyone of you who viewed my blog from time to time...my deepest apology this time, i never abandone my blog for such long time..thanks for your patient, thanks your viewings...

Im back !! sorry to keep you guys waiting...

My updates !! just a short brief in this post on all my recent updates since the last post i mentioned !!!

Yeah, after a day of my previous post..my friends Waisin and Xinyi with myself..we went backpack to Vietnam Ho Chi Minh, Cambodia's Phnom Penh and Siam Reap for 7 days !!! definitely i want to say that, it was an awesome trip !!!

i guess many of you may already viewed my pics in my facebook..here are some to show you guys as the proofs i went there..hahaha...

It's me with Vietnam traditional hat !!! Mekong Delta trip !!
Phnom Penh's Grand Palace !!! look from far, but i am at Silver Pagoda area.. The palace was not open for public that day !!!

My one day pass !!!!..


My friends and i !! shot a picture in front of the magnificent Angkor Wat, Siam Reap !!..many people were so envied us can go to Angkor Wat...thanks..we were honoured as well !! We were stepping on the jewel built on 12th Century !!!



A temple at the Archeological Park !! Bayon Temple..A temple we 3 like the most because it was full of faces !!!

Well, if i said we were backpacking..i shall shall we were !! i wonder if we really were backpacking, but we were like other backpackers as well !! so i assumed we were !! hahaha..
Backpacking to these two countries were easy actually !! but it required certain extend of preparation as well !!..
First is the STRENGTH !!! well, backpacking and no matter how you are going to backpack, you will have a backpack right? well of course we have. Cmon, its not those SUITCASE ok !! hahaha...you need strength to carry your own stuffs on your back and your hands. Well, i brought 8kg of stuffs going, and i carried 16kg of stuffs back !!! all on my back and hands !! if you do not have that strength to carry your own, its hard for you..
Also, in our Vietnam and Cambodia backpacking..it required our strength to WALK !!..we walked soo much !! We walked a lot !!...we walked and climbed those temples in Angkor Wat for 11 hours !!! it required a lot of energy !! well, i was the one who always complaint tired of walking !! hahaha...
Second, backpackers need to read a lot !! read what? read information about your travel. We gathered information on the place, culture, place of interest, price, and bla bla bla from internet and WIKI TRAVEL !! this is important..seriously important !! so you could prepare before handed and to prevent you being cheated.. it saves your time and money !!
Third, we have to become open hearted and outspoken !! Backpackers like to talk and share ideas among themselves. We talked and interacted with many backpackers along the way..Thus, we should be outspoken and not shy talking with them. If you are timid to talk, its hard to interact !! and people may think MALAYSIAN are cocky !! hahaha...we should also DARE..dare to ask when you do not know...dare to ask the road....dare to eat THEIR foods and drinks..
Hahaha...well, Cambodia and Vietnam at some of their place, it were not clean and tidy..so we have to become dare to eat their way of food, drinks...they may be prepared in not VERY hygiene way, but that was how they live. If you are coward and hyper sensitive on the things you stuck in your mouth..you better dont go these place !!..luckily we dare !! and we enjoyed ~~~
i cannot think much on the idea, but let me share the last thing that you need when you backpack like us!! which is, DONT BE SO STINGY !! prepare some money for your trip !!..we were not so stingy even though we regarded it was a budget travel !! we stil eat nice, sleep decent and ENJOYED max...surprisingly, we were far far in our budget of money !!!..which mean, our FIXED costs for whole trip was just around RM 1K.. Well, we were not regretting spending so much money to those things that WE WILL NEVER GET IT IN MALAYSIA maybe FOREVER !!...haha..you see, we experienced M16 rifle shooting in such cheap price...i never thought i could able to hold M16 gun in Malaysia !1 hahaha....
Thats all i want to say in this quick but not short post of mine !! its a little about my trip !! something that you may not expect i will say here instead of saying how nice and beautiful those places are !! hahaha
Look out for my post soon !!... it will about what i did, went through and what i am now after the backpacking trip !!
Regards
Phang !!!
