6th Jan - 1st Dat Pt 3 (Siem Reap, Cambodia)

Splurge myself as soon as I reached the Siem Reap town by bicycle. Rented the bicycle at USD2 which is USD1 more than usual for charity purpose, called White Bicycle.

Had a set lunch at USD8 at Le Grande Cafe which is a nice spot to watch the world pass by. The lunch is nothing spectacular though it's a nice place to rest and relax, especially under the hot sun.

Taken from the window-sde table at the 1st floor of Le Grande Cafe. In sight also the Warehouse, a nice drinking spot.

Luckily I found a cobbler to mend my 9-years old Malaysian made Power sandal.

The first temple I visited together with 6 Malaysians I met on plane. Not to be discriminating, it's nothing compared to Angkor Wat.

Taken with Ashley (far left) and Kenneth (middle).

Traditional Cambodian dish, amok which is creamy (coconut milk) and delicous. However, the waiting time is a put-off as I waited for about an hour for the dinner.

I tried the Amok at the Khmer Kitchen Restaurant which is just next to Le Grande Cafe.

Had a drink with Tina (left - Swiss working in Cambodia) and Andrea (right - Austrian traveler) at the Warehouse and had a nice chat as well. Both are CouchSurfer ( and eventhough Tina unable to host us, she still took her time and had a drink with us. Thanks for the Angkor beer Tina!!!
