Kona Trip - Rebz camera day1
Apr 3, 2008

Our girlz trip to Kona - LavaLand..
There were some really really nice beaches and lots and lots ...more

and lots of LAVA rocks everywhere.. it was like landing on Mars or the Moon or something.. but weather was perfect.. we got to eat lots of hawaiian rice plates.. and loaded up on our furikaki from Costco! Drove 2.5 hours across the island to see STEAM!|>!;>!? we expected more from volcanos, but apparently, you have to go there when it's dark.. NO WAY! at least we saw some nice waterfall along the way and did a mini hike down a super incline that Reb entertained us w/ her slip and slide on her ahss! we made this trip the best of it!.. Glad we got to hang out w/ the rest of the TP girlz on the last two nites.. had a yummmO dinner @ Huggoz.. and a delish breakfast at this AWESOME taro pancake place.. the last day, we maxed our time out w/ walmart run and the run along a high way to look for some "guava".. "passion fruit" - thank GOD i didn't make it past agricultural check w/ that shiet.. Chuongy woulda died with wutever fruit I picked off of some highway!

the last beach we hit up was an adventure to get to at first, but realized we were on the wrong route.. however, we found it and it was definitely KUA ---- WAAAAAAAAAA BAY! watched our last sunset and headed back home!

eally made the best of this trip.. Let's just say, it was like landing on mars with very nice weather and areas of very nice beaches.. Lavaland everywhere.. we even drove a whole day to go see volcanos, and all we saw was lava, lava and more lava.. then at the end of the lava journey, we saw a ton of steam..

there were some very nice beaches around the island, all hidden.. the weather was perfect and we soaked in as much sun as we can!

special place for u. i know being with me means not having what
your friends has when it comes to relationship and that spending
more time together.one thing they can not offer is the love that
i have for u. i might not always show but it is there.

i will always love you, even when i do not show it.
please remember your in my heart always.

half day in northstar.. it was soooooo crowded so chuongy and i just went up and down the main slope that leads down to the village and took gondola up.. that way we cut the waiting in line, get a long run and don't have to fall on our ahsses getting off the lifts! hehehe ;p

it was short but fun.. lots and lots of falling.. snow throwing and snow angels.. saw lotta ppz injured even somebody sitting/falling over an already injured person getting pulled down the mountain.. chuongy and i made the best of it by going down the last portion of the slope on our butts, sitting on our boards.. i beat him first.. then he cheated the last 2 times to beat me!... ;p

then we headed to reno and stayed at the peppermill.. which was not badd.. with their flat screen tV and the newer montego bay wing with the marble bathrooms.. nice and decent for reno.. we ended up filling our bigg bellyz with the CIRCUS CIRCUS all u can eat.. was most decent for the price..

headed back home next morn and hit up the nike outlets and grubbd @ nuttree.. was a very nice trip!

the WII.. Aunt Sally beat everyone esp. jason with her WII bowling.. I of course beat everyone (chuongy x 3, jas and aunt sally) with my WII boxing! guess all that TKB pays off.. despite the fact that i was sore for dayz after and my WII age from the fitness test was like close to age 80! we finally opened Xmas gifts w/ Santa Ian and his elves setting it off.. Thanks for the real juicy outfit, Tings!

Next day, I spent Xmas helping chuongy at the rest.. cuz it was so busy made up for the year.. his mom had a small partay and took lots and lots of pix of chuongy's nephew...

chuongy told me my surpriz was at home hidden.. looked everywhere.. he said it was a big item and yes, i'm the least observant and missed the HUGE TV box sitting under my aunt's bed.. of course, never go in there.. chuongy knws me too well, an UPGRADE! sweeeeeeeet!

there's something where when the bride gets married, they're suppose to receive some gifts from the grooms side of the family before the wedding.. since mom and i wanted to go to shanghai, we we decided to head up together w/ ivy and fam.. ivy's fiance picks us up from the airport in shanghai.. ivy warned me that shanghai may have lots of tall buildings but the maintenance inside is still "china" standards.. which they don't really maintain the common areas very well.. everything that is brand new looks old.. our new Jin Jiang hotel, looks new on the outside, but looks like it's 80 years old on the inside.. aside frm that and the TONS of airpollution and cars and motorbikes and bicyclists heading to u frm every corner, we had a very nice trip.. filled w/ the yummiest shanghainese cuisines to the cheap and quality tailoring of clothes and fun siteseeing.. altho, i have to say don't go to zhou zhang village, it's too touristy and commercialized.. however, the best cuisine we had was at this hole in the wall, place run by one person who's enjoyment is cooking (which i can tell) called "qun" in chinese, meaning spring.. this lady cooked the best dishes i ever had and it was cheap! so, i def. had a great time EATING AND EATING AND EATING, which was the purpose of this trip..

Cambodje Day 3 Artisans School
Aug 27, 2006

I must say, that Cambodjens possess an amazing skill, talent and creativity.. These students create ...more

good quality pieces of artwork and furniture.. all hand-crafted to perfection.. We saw a room of students creating sand stone pieces where they use their hands to rubb the stone to make it shiney.. Then another room of deaf students using sign language to communicate to each other.. They were creating beautiful paintings on silk screens.. Another room had students creating wood work statues.. and more and more from replicas of the sand stone carvings in the temples to the statues standing outside of the temples.. I had to support these students and buy a couple pieces myself.. If I ever owned a home, I would def. come here to fill it up with these good quality artwork and furnitures..

Cambodje day 3 Ta Prohm
Aug 27, 2006

After breakfast, we walked around and took some quick pictures of our hotel.. Then we headed to the Ta Prohm Temple, where tomb raider was filmed.. It was such a beautiful scenery. The sun was out and every ray of the sun painted the temple with beautiful colors and shadowing. Every angle was an amazing view, no wonder tomb raider picked this spot to film. I can't imagine how beautiful it may have been back when the temple was just finished in the 12th-early 13th century under Jayavarman VII rule. Ta Prohm is a Buddhist monastery typical of the last formula of the Khmer temples in which the ensemble, laid out on a single plane, no longer followed the principle of multiple levels, but where the notion of elevation was rather expressed by the rising of the towers and predominant central sanctuary from within an arrangement of concentric galleries.

Even laying in ruins was such a beautiful site. Our guide showed us many interesting characteristics and details. The most interesting is the fact that all the roots of the trees grow within, on top and alongside the structure of all the buildings of each part of the temple. He showed us the area where angelina jolie first saw a girl spirit and that's where they filmed one of the scenes. Then he showed us a mysterious face carving smiling and peering out under rubble and tree roots. Then some forms of tree roots that resemble certain things like a woman's butt or a worm, etc.. There were just so many picturesque points about this temple. This is so far my favorite temple. The indian govt is trying to reconstruct the front structure and hopefully they preserve the rest of all the structures within the way it is, even laying in ruins it gives you a sense of amazing beauty of Ta Prohm.

Cambodje day 2 Angkor Wat
Aug 26, 2006

After lunchy @ bluepumpkin cafe, we headed out to see angkor wat.. Angkor wat with the size of about 500 acres of land surrounded by a moat that is 650 feet across, it is the largest and the most well preserved of the structures in the region. While almost every temple in Angkor faces east, Angkor Wat faces west. Some scholars believe the complex was intended as a mausoleum for Surayavarman II (1112-1152 A.D.), the king who began its construction. The westward orientation is rationalized by the symbolism of death seen in the setting of the sun in the West. There are three layers and the outer most layer is filled with 4 walls of Bas Reliefs. I have taken a picture of each description of Bas Reliefs. They consist of:

The West Gallery (southern portion): The Battle of Kurukshetra, from the Mahabharata.

The South Gallery: The Army of King Surayavarman II in a triumphal march. The king rides and elephant and is shaded by 15 umbrellas. There is a depiction of Thai serving as mercenaries in the Khmer army in the relief. The contrast between the Khmers and the Thais is revealing: the Khmers are real soldiers and the Thais are disorganized and unprofessional. Scenes from Heaven and Hell are also contained on this wall.

The East Gallery: The Churning of the Ocean of Milk is portrayed. Eighty-eight demons and 92 gods churn the Ocean of Milk for 1000 years, using a huge snake as their tool.

Cambodje day 2 Angkor Thom
Aug 26, 2006

We had breakfast on our second day.. yummy all you can eat, the mango here is sooooo fresh and different frm any mango i've ever had.. papaya was yumm, almond croissant and smoke salmon bagel.. def. delish! then we headed to angkor thom.. The guide explained to us that the old capital used to be located in angkor thom.. so, we're going to see Bayon & Baphuon, where all the wars happened between Cham and the cambodians back under Jayavarman VII's reign around year 1177.. All the delicate detailed carvings on the sand stone walls of the 54 towers showed us the war of the Chams & the life of the Cambodians.. Bayon is one of the last temples built in Angkor, and is one of the few Buddhist temples in Angkor. Over 200 large faces adorn the 54 towers at Bayon.

After, we walked through an area of complete ruins. We find out that it was the temple of Baphuon, which was built in the second have of the 11th Century and dedicated to the Hindu god Vishnu. It was the representation of Mt. Meru built for the reign of King Utyadityavarman II (1050-1086).

As we were heading out, we approached The Elephant Terrace and the Terrace of the Leper-King - Just under 1000 feet long, the terrace is made of carved sandstone; the stairways are butted with three-headed elephants.

Cambodje day 2 Elepht ride
Aug 26, 2006

After we had another break at the blue pumpkin cafe, we went for our elephant ride up to Phnom Bakheng. It was a great and exciting experience, riding on our 45 year old elephant. They can usually grow as old as 100. Mom and dad's elephant seemed like a baby one, so theirs kept stoping and eating the leaves of the trees on the side of the trail.

We got to the top and saw another beautiful 4 layered temple. As the 10th Century was being born, the Khmer king Yasovarman I (899-908 AD) built Phnom Bakheng in the Angkor area and then moved his capital from the Roluos complex to the Angkor area. This was a Hindu temple in the formof a Temple mountain, dedicated to Shiva in the late 9th century. At the front of the temple lays a huge carving of Buddha's foot.

We took the elephant ride back down and headed back to our hotel. We walked around at the local market accross the street and then went for a quick swim in our nice infinity-type pool.. it was very relaxing!

Cambdje nite 1
Aug 25, 2006

I'm sooo excited abt this trip, i decided to load up on a 1GB mem. stik and extra batt. cuz i knw i'm gna be snapping away.. since i took abt 900 pix, yes 900, i decided i'm going to post them by days.. We arrive at the new airport that hasn't officially opened yet till Aug 28th.. weather was perfect! forecast said that chance of Tstorms and rain.. oh, did i pray superduper hard.. and the whole 3 days we had nothing but sunshine and breeze and few drops of rain.. we're greeted by our tour guide, Kimhask, very very nice and honest type of person.. He is very educated and tells us in detail about everythg.. he first tells us history abt Cambodje (that's really how u spell it), then tells us the roads are built by jap. company.. Sadly enuff, we learn all the resources are being sucked out by foreignors, Jap, French, Korean.. They build things there, but make the profits for themselves, therefore sucking up all the industry that they have and the gov. isn't helping the Cambodian ppl.. the rich get richer, the poor get poorer..

n-ehoo, we arrive at Hotel de la Paix (french owner).. very nice and modern (small lux. hotel).. greeted w/ yummy welcome drinks (pineapple, ginger and lemon grass).. Our hotel guide, shows us around to see all the facilities.. then we headed to our roomz and went to eat at our own restaurant..
