It’s the beginning of the dry spell here in Malaysia. The dry season is going to mean no rain and more heat. Besides sweating ourselves dry at home, I decided to make use of it and take advantage of the sunset that’s going to awesome. Still, I was lucky enough to have avoided the haze that has been going around Kuala Lumpur for months. Enjoy!
We went off track to a village located in Siem Reap. The village doesn’t boast any luxuries, but it has the best examples of a simple life. We took photos and played with the village children. They are the most happiest kids I’ve ever seen in my life. They may live in poverty but from every single smile we saw, it all looked genuine and had no worries. This proves that we don’t need any iPods, LV bags, Jimmy Choos, Old School Coffeeshops and bagels to make ourselves fulfilling. This sunset that we shared with the village kids has been one of the best and most unforgettable experiences in my life.
One of the many quiet chambers inside the Prasat Bayon - the famous Khmer temple with hundreds of gigantic faces of Buddha that decorates its exterior and rises like the mythical Mount Meru. Located right in the center of the ancient Angkor city of Angkor Thom.
Shot this at the most visited and most complete South Gate of Angkor Thom. The sun sets just in front of us as it passes through the silhouette of trees and disappears into the horizon across the gigantic moat surrounding the ancient city walls. The faces on the gate watches over the surroundings with its watchful eyes as we admire nature’s beauty.
Hidden up in the mountains of Gifu, Japan, there is a village filled with many beautiful houses. It is called Shirakawa-Go. During winter, these houses are covered in snow and looks exactly like ginger bread houses on a christmas cake.
These traditional houses has a special roof that resembles praying hands and are therefore called gasshō-zukuri. This design is exceptionally strong and, in combination with the unique properties of the thatching, allow the houses to withstand and shed the weight of the region’s heavy snowfalls in winter. Gassho-zukuri settlements are registered as cultural heritage sites.
You May Say I’m A Dreamer, But I’m Not The Only One. Photo of the sunset at the beach in Bali. We were chilling on Kuta Beach when we spotted this right in front of us. It was one of the most awesome sunsets I’ve ever seen with my own eyes.

54 Devas pull the head of the snake ‘Shesha’ that is wrapped around the central mountain of Mt. Meru. The ocean began to churn and precipitate the elements. By pulling back and forth, the ocean was ‘milked’, forming the earth and the cosmos anew. Check out the high-res photo at: http://500px.com/photo/65356981
Noticed this mysterious rock in the twilight hours. A cast of mystical red and purple sets in and how was I not tempted to capture it? The seas were calling, I had only a few minutes to grab this shot and escape the strong tide that was coming. Check out the high-res photo at: http://500px.com/photo/58409142
