Many years ago back in LA, my husband told me about his trip to Cambodia and I was instantly captivated by all the photos he took. Back then even without really knowing how this thought would materialize, I told myself that I would love to see this place with my own eyes one day.
Fast forward to this month, I decided to go on a trip to Cambodia and make my dream come true. The funny thing is that for someone who often travels with her family, this trip was solo. It was a work trip and I intended to get in, work, work and get out with enriching experiences. All the challenges I have encountered in my life have taught me that I can only rely on myself to push myself, to better myself in order to live my best life and be who God wants me to be.
I’m very glad that I’ve finally accomplished this bucket list moment. I feel humbled and alive! To be honest, I feel very grateful most of the time but even more so grateful at the moment for many reasons. To give you one simple reason why I’m feeling so grateful now, I found out during my trip to Cambodia when I was shooting these photos, that Grand Hyatt Tokyo shared my work here and I could not be any happier.
For the past five years, I worked very hard on this blog, even during our holidays I worked but I never felt that my work was appreciated or needed. For anyone like myself who thinks that their hard work was totally meaningless, you can only feel elated when a big luxury hotel with impeccable service shares your work. I know that this doesn’t mean much for bloggers whose work is shared all the time but for me, it means a lot; it means that I’m on the right path. I’m truly grateful and I want to say thank you to Grand Hyatt Tokyo and anyone who genuinely supports my work.
Talking about work, I’m finally sharing my most recent one with you . I shot these photos inside Angkor Wat and I hope you like them as much as I do. Angkor Wat was originally a hindu temple but it was gradually transformed into a buddhist temple.It took 30 years to finish the construction of the monument you see in these photos
Angkor Wat is the largest religious monument in the World. The history, the shape, the size and the unique architecture of the Angkor Wat seen entirely in the photo above, are all the amazing factors that make this place a bucket worthy destination. I’m happy that I have knocked it off my bucket list.
Chatting with the monks! The young boy is 15years old and has been a monk only for two years.
*Doing Fashion everywhere I go. Unexpectedly this outfit brought a smile on the face of many people who saw me shooting inside Angkor Wat. I ended up chatting with total strangers who were touring Angkor Wat. Fashion is never vain!
