Ho Chi Minh City... City with thousand of motobikes~

coming to you all the way from HCMC~ Yellow House Hotel...
It's 0815 now....

there is practically 1 thing to identify that u are already in Ho Chi Minh city... u will see tons of motobikes on the road...

Like what lonely planet had said.. this city is swamp with motobikes tat was ones bicycles...

Ho Chi Minh city is a pretty developed place... much advance city than Phonem Penh and Siem Reap.

We reached Ho Chi Minh City(HCMC) directly from Siem Reap.. the journey took us roughly 12+ hours... we spent the whole day in the bus~ butt also flat already... it's ard 600+ kilometers from Siem Reap to HCMC.

we reached this place, then we went to get our return tickets at the Mekong Express Bus's office... then we find our way to our guest house at Du Vien St. - Yellow House Hotel.
Cheap~ and looks cheap too... hahahaha cost us 15usd for a big twin room per night...

then after settle down at the hotel, we went for food hunting... practically everywhere... ppl just sit on small stool to have their food... noodles.. coffee... and more noodles...

we were searching for noodles tooo.. but so many places they are selling those noodles with pork hanging there in the stall... so we kept walking from street to streets... then we came across one stall.. which says... "Hue's Noddles Beef Soup"...[hue's noodle Beef Soup]

ahh something not very "porky"... we think...
the noodle is fantastic... mayb it's because that we only had like 2 bread and 2 pastries whole day in the bus... or it's really that great with it's spices...

Ezriq had the beef noodle soup... i had the pork version... very tasty....
everyone should try it when they are in HCMC...

after the noodle... we went strolling around the city...
looking at the night lights...

Siem Reap, Cambodia~

Reporting to you live at Molly Malone's, Pub Street Cambodia~

food here is cheap... around 2 dollars for a decent meal by the road side...
good taste~

visited one of the temples today... went there for the sunset scene~ very very beautiful~
(line is a lil bad over here... will upload the pictures later)

crossing border from
Aranyaprathet to Cambodia is a lil challenging.. as the touts is EVERYWHERE! i really mean EVERYWHERE... they can just come and snatch something off your pouch in a blink of eyes... and just disbursed to nowhere...

That's at the border.. but at the town itself, It's a very nice place~ at least for the Disco... named by Fusion...
great place to hangout... :)

oh another thing... after getting over to poipet... oh gosh.. that place is the worst representation of cambodia by far... the mafia taxi is pretty scary... but we got on a taxi for a fee of 50USD... which is considered as pretty expensive... oh well.. but it got us to Siem Reap pretty fast and comfy... so actually it's not that bad afterall...
2 white man we met in Aranyaprathet... walked so far away from us as they are not willing to share the cake of 50USD for the taxi... hope that Cameron(from NZ) and Garette(from canada) is okay~
We instead took the taxi with Peter&Petra(from Holland)...

Now i am at the pub at my guesthouse.. kinda nice and cosy over here...

alrite.. that's for now.. for the moment...
Sunrise at Angkor Wat tomolo~ weeeeee...

and also.. met miami and gang at the airport tooooo... all 3 groups of us are on the same place to BKK~ alot of ppl took this opportunity to go traveling...

we got a taxi at arrival hall lane 3... all the way to Sukhumvit Soi 38.. 400 baht...

Et lining up at the immegration at Suvarnabhumi Airport

Bangkok is quite a very very well planned and developed place...
Pretty girls is everywhere! i really mean everywhere! during the journey in the taxi... we saw so many pretty girls... dressed very very pretti-ly walking on the street... and when we arrived at Sukhumvit Soi 38... whole street is filled with girls! all sitting at food stalls eating... *gulp*
even the 7-11 cashier is pretty too! polite... soft toned...
like what choywan said.. all leng lui here is thin thin de~.... hahaha indeed :P

Bangkok has SkyTrain everywhere (i think)... even now they are building one direct from the airport... How cool rite?
