MINGALABAR, MYANMAR!
Thursday, May 5, 2016




Am back!

Just arrived home last night from super last minute trip to Myanmar. Inle Lake in summer is a glorious treat. It was good 20 degrees. The colors are warm, the sun is splendour and the flowers abloom. It gets pretty cold in the morning and boy, I underestimated the weather! Was shivering like crazy.

And Yangon.. personally, it wasn't the most pleasant trip I've taken. Been there, done that. I've seen what I want to see, at least. And don't get me wrong, I super love Inle Lake but I didn't enjoy Yangon as much just because the weather was too HOT. It can reach up 40 degrees, day time. I can't even stay outside for more than an hour. Haha. Panas ngat ngat, tak tahan.

And I just realised upon looking our photos, that we looked tanned! Hiks. Mungkin kena tempek bedak tanaka sat lagi, I really think we're a bit sunburnt.

My first impression of Myanmar, it's like going back to the 80s. These folks live a simple and modest life. Well, their life may be small, incredibly simple as compared to our ideas of materialistic comfort but yet I've seen a tranquillity and happiness, they seem content with their life.




And for all the difficulties and unpredictability of life, some things remain so humble. Like the sunrise above. We deliberately woke up at 5.00 am to catch this view. Having missed the sunset on our first evening because it was raining so badly.

More on this later, which is entah bila. Haha.
