Elephant walking on the street

Have you ever seen this before? This picture was taken on my way back home from work at Phnom Penh City. As you can see from the picture, the traffic in Phnom Penh is so bad that all cars come in different directions. The elephant (as shown in the picture) will be walking from the temple to the roundabout to take shower every evening.

Homemade Vietnamese Coffee

Addicted to drinking coffee recently, but only Vietnamese Coffee. I had posted a few posts previously regarding Vietnamese Coffee. The taste of the coffee is so much stronger than normal coffee, and tastes so nice after adding with some condensed milk.

I made my own Vietnamese Coffee at home after i got my own Coffee Drip and Coffee Powder from Vietnam. And the creamer from Tesco, Malaysia. It is so creamy compare to the other brand.

Hope can drink a cup of Vietnamese Coffee now but It's already 8.40pm at night. I might not be able to sleep for the rest of the night after i drink it. SIGH..........

My Workplace @ Phnom Penh

I had been living in Cambodia for a year. Most of the articles I blogged was about the life in Cambodia. Well, This post I'm going to post some of my work photos in Phnom Penh.

Those photos were taken during the opening ceremony of the hotel, which was a day before i went back to Malaysia. As you can see, most of my colleagues are from Malaysia and Singapore. Therefore, I don't feel much difference working here compare to Malaysia. The only difference is the working place. How I wish can go back in one day!

This Post is Specially For Polly, The Kobe Cream Puff :)

My best friend, Polly was addicted to drinking coffee. This post is specially for her :) Hope she'll enjoy reading this post!

Pha 24 is a franchise outlet from Ho Chi Minh who serves for Vietnamese Noodle and Coffee. There is a branch in Phnom Penh which is 5 minutes drive away from my office.

This is my second visit to Pha 24. I ordered for Vietnamese Coffee and Meat Ball Noodle. The coffee was so nice and comparable to the one that i had in Ho Chi Minh. I couldn't drink coffee at all but this coffee was too nice that i had to finish it.

After waiting for a few minutes

Added with some condensed milk. It tastes like KOPIKO Candy

I ordered for 2 more additional bowls of mint leaves and tauke and lime to be added in the soup. It really tastes good!

Gathering @ Secret Recipe

I had a gathering with my ex-colleagues during my trip back to Miri. As usual, We will always meet up whenever I go back to Miri. For this trip, one was missing which is Anna. She is currently working at the same place as me now.

Secret Recipe in Miri is the same franchise as in KL. I used to buy a lot of their cakes when i was working in KL at those days.

As usual, I will order for Apple Kasturi and Chocolate Indulgence at Secret Recipe. We ordered for Chocolate Indulgence and Cappucino Cheese Cake to be shared among 5 of us.

Trip back to Miri

I was back in Miri on the 9-16th November 2008 for a week. A week is actually too short for me. How I wish i could spend more time in Miri with my family and friends.

Everyday was lining up with lots of activities, dinner with family, meeting up with friends and cousins. Been to a few new places and restaurants in Miri like SOHO, Sea Horse 2, Secret Recipe and Mr. Ho's Fine Food. Miri is very different now compared to 5 years ago when i was still in Miri at that time.

SOHO's concept is a bit like those pubs in KL, Irish Pub? However, I dont really like to drink. Therefore, I couldn't stay too long in a pub :)
