Yesterday we left the island life and was supposed to go for a few nights to Sihanoukville, but one of our new friends here told us that we should take a 15 min ride away from Sihanoukville instead and go to Otres Beach that is supposed to be much better. And i am sooo glad we did, it is totally awesome here! The place we are staying at, the village, the restaurants, the surroundings, EVERYTHING! I will share a lot about this place in a post when i am back in Sweden again. 19 days to go!
Black Lips, Nay or Yay?
I had such some nice days lately. Been traveling from the capital here in Cambodia to the islands in the south. The last couple of days I have stayed in a bungalow. Since it did not have an AC I have mostly been outdoors and not being able to really update here. But we just moved today to a guesthouse instead, after all we need to get some work done and we could not manage to do much of that in the heat.
Now we have a few days left on this island, Koh Rong. It is such a cozy place and also home for a lot of stray dogs. But these are not unhappy dogs who is desperately wishing for a home. The dogs is having the time of their life over here. Playing in the water, getting fed, cuddling with tourist and locals, and they are so cute and friendly. We had a bunch of visitors at our bungalow when we just moved in. Two dogs and one cat who went playing around like crazy inside. It took a while to get her out 😛
Yesterday i barely left the hotel… and it was great!
I woke up, went out for a nice breakfast, went back home and just chilled in the bed while doing some work mixed with playing some games on my phone.
After that i did not leave the hotel until it was dark outside. Than i went to pick up my laundry and just happened to hear some great KISS music playing load from Hard Rock Cafe here in Siem Reap. So i ran home to quickly drop off the laundry and ran back to the bar to sit down with a beer and listen to the live band that was playing for the night.
Such a great evening, the band was great and they played a lot of good classics and a lot of covers that i wished for. The name of the band i ROCKSTORM if you ever visit Siem Reap and want to keep an eye open in the Hard Rock Calendar. God i miss having good rock music around me.
I am very sorry for the bad update lately, but i managed to get food poisoned AGAIN! Right after i got cured from the first one. Or maybe my stomach just wasn’t great yet and i went back to eating like two grown up men like usual again.
Well at least i am good now. And i managed to make up my own cure for my stomach this time, i ate a bunch of super spice chilies since i came up with this theory that they will burn out all the virus in my stomach. Well, looks like it worked. High-five to myself!
Maybe i should have started a carries as a doctor instead…
I have not been doing to much shopping during my trip yet. The biggest reason is that we are travelling with only backpacks and we wont fit so much more in there. We have decided to save all our shopping for our absolute last stop. There we will buy a large suitcase and put everything we shop in that one so we can check it in for our flight to Sweden.
But sometimes a little bit of shopping wont hurt… i mean, a woman needs to do what a woman needs to do.
Btw. The store, Mumuso, where i bought everything (except the body lotion) from is amazing! It is a Korean store and has everything from nice accessories and beauty products, till great gadgets for your mobile.
We are staying REALLY close to the party street in district 1 here in Ho Chi Minh, so we could not really skip going out for some drinks at least a few times (reasons reasons).
So yesterday we went out for some dinner which was really nice, and i finally found some great sushi!
After that we went to the party street for some drinks. We choosed a place with very little people and not to loud music. We felt like having a evening with more chill and drinks than party.
Soon we are going to meet up with some friends that just arrived so lets see what this evening has in store for us.
Remember that i wrote earlier that mt mobile got to swim in the ocean? Well, it is still working except for two very important buttons, so i decided to go and get myself a new phone here in Vietnam. I had in mind to wait until im back in Sweden, but then i saw the variation and prices of the mobiles that they have over here and decided not to wait. So today i got myself a new phone, and so far i love it!
And why did i chose the model that i bought? The number one thing i check when buying a mobile is the camera. And this one is supposed to be great when it comes to both pictures and selfies. I guess we will find out soon!
