Phnom Penh, (pronounced as "nom pen") the capital of Cambodia. A bustling little town, with its own unique culture and to me, exotic and gratifying. Constantly crossing into dimensions when you enter through a door; as you go back and forth between first and third world environments. Vehicles crowding the road like people flooding the tunnels of mrt trains during peak hours back home. I got a culture shock on the first day indeed. Especially when I'm not on very good terms with traffic....== On the bright side, my trip to Phnom Penh made me overcome the fear of jaywalking pretty.. much. I don't freak out as much nowadays hahahaha
Now, this beautiful place has wonders of its own. Tuk tuks everywhere, street hawkers, counterfeit products that sells cheaper than your average clothing, and the occasional beggars who are rather.. aggressive. Great food whatever you order, from whatever culture. They seem to know how to cook everything nicely. The best part is, they taste like home-cooked meals. mmmmmm
What is there not to love about this place? Not to mention missing it as well. And of course, I have documented my trip through images, and they do bring back nostalgic moments which unconsciously is persuading me to go back again soon, which I clearly know, isn't gonna happen for a very long time. With that, I shall end up in a state of self pity and self loathe while you enjoy these wonderful pictures of Phnom Penh.
The series below is pretty interesting, and it was also when I found out that the motorbikers were looking at my camera XD
Day two & three
I learnt the most in this day. Partly because Uncle Lam (he's a pro photographer) took me to a "field trip" in the wet market to learn how to take portraits, especially candid/street shots. Best day ever. I also love how some of them look into the camera. It was such an awesome experience. Learnt so much within that short span of time.
Here lies all of my works, ranging from photographs to videos.
