Just when I spoke too soon about how irritating those narcissistic travel pictures were, I am going to demonstrate the irritation now...
On the left is me comparing my right foot to one of those statues' in one of the temples in Angkor.
On the middle is both my feet up against the temple walls in Bayon.
And on the right is both my feet again doing peek-a-boo in the boat, going for a 1-hour tour on the Mekong River in Laos.
Haha. I am so full of shit sometimes...
But even so, I still get to be in Simontalks' Top 5 Fave Blogs list. Waa, felt so honoured. Thank you, dear Simon. In that list, he also mentioned about EatingChaos's travelogues. Go check it out, I really think it's very good.
