One Word Photo Challenge: Children

Love to capture children’s pictures…

These are photos taken in Galapagos Island, Phnom Penh and in Hong Kong.  Can you tell the difference?

 

Kids in Phnom Penh

These are some of the pictures I took Saturday morning in Phnom Penh…  Like most kids in the world, we found smiling faces.  However, when the mother was begging for money and the kids played with money, I’m a bit worry…

 

Good morning from Phnom Penh 

Saturday morning in Phnom Penh, there are a lot of activities in front of the Palace…

Sunrise from riverside… 
Doggie leading yoga exercise…  
Selling lotus for worship… 
People are lining up to worship in the temple, so as the birds… 😄 
Yet this guy is still sleeping… He must be exhausted!  

Happy faces in Phnom Penh…

Every time when I visit a foreign country, I like to go to their local market to understand more about the local lives…

In Phnom Penh,  we walked around the market and found a lot of colourful fruits, all looked sweet and tasty!  It’s evening, people were busy picking up food for their dinner.

  
 Busy street…

  
On the other side of the market, there’s a park.  People were enjoying lives in their own way…

Playing chess game… 
 
 What a happy family…   

Kids and the monkey…  

  And our disco queen!  

Japanese Food

Comparing to the food in Phnom Penh, Japanese food is more than just the taste and varieties…  It’s the spirit and culture.

The way the dishes are presented, the portion, the combination of the food, the sequence and even the container are well integrated, in particular when you wear your kimono… 🙂

Breakfast

Here comes the dinner set…  It’s just like attending a show on art of food, not just to feed your stomach…  What an experience!

Food in Phnom Penh

A lot of choices, both western and eastern food are found in Phnom Penh.  These are a few Cambodian dishes we tried… 🙂

New Hope…

After the trip to Phnom Penh, I went to the forest of southern Thailand to take photos for butterflies…  Comparing to the human extermination of Tuol Sleng, I found the nature gave us more new hope…  Don’t you think so?

Tuol Sleng Museum in Phnom Penh

Have a chance to visit Phnom Penh for two days and visited the Tuol Sleng Museum there…

Blockade

Tuol Sleng Museum was one of the secondary schools in Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia, called “Tuol Svay Prey” High School.  After April 17, 1975, this school had transformed into a prison called “S-21” by the Pol Pot clique.

Thousands of victims were imprisoned and exterminated with their wives and children.  Felt very depressed when I walked thru the museum.  Hope this horrible thing will not happen again in this world.
