FuFu World Tour - The Killing Field & Phnom Penh
6 ~ 9 June 2007 - Annabel & FuFu - Part Four


We stayed at Tasom Guesthouse, Siem Reap.


Before we moved to the bus terminal.

It was a real quick visit in Siem Reap as we only stayed a night and left the city the following morning. Well, anyway since Airasia makes everyone can fly to Siem Reap and Phnom Penh easily now, i believe i will be going back very soon!


Back to Phnom Penh, the US$8 double bed room again.


The Killing Fields Memorial of Choeung Ek.

The place has a long history behind it and reminds one of the horrifying times that the people have gone through during the reign of Khmer and after. Khmer Rouge killed 1.5 millions Cambodian between 1975 and 1978. Out of this, 17000 of men, women, children and infants were detained and tortured at S21 prison in Phnom Penh and then transported to the extermination camp that now known as the Killing Fields.


Piles of bones, thousand of lives.


The skulls that taken out from the mass graves.

The memorial stupa shelters more than 8000 skulls, arranged by sex and age are visible behind the clear glass panels. Fragments of human bones and bits of clothes are seen scattered around. The Killing Fields visit was really traumatic for us and i am sure for all other visitors, it's the same.



Thousands of innocents were slaughtered for no fault of theirs.



Behind the memorial stupa are these massive graves.

The dead bodies were just thrown into a large open graves dug in to rice fields and there are more than hundred of these large graves there. While many were just buried alive, according to the guide. It is a horrible yet very important tourist destination and nobody should miss while travelling in Phnom Penh.


Say no to child-abused!


We observed one minute silence to the victims.


A sad site to visit but important nonetheless.


We were back to the capital city.


The King Norodom Sihamoni of Cambodia.


My turn to show Annabel my country's flag.


We walked to the riverside.


We strolled along the river.


You can go to Siem Reap by boat from Phnom Penh.

Just wondering how long does Chenla take to Siem Reap.


Lots of people gather along the riverside.


And you can find many stalls like this along the river.


You can get everything there from salad, snacks, fruits, meat to rice.


The fruits stall - papayas and pineapples.


Papa's ice cream~~


This kid selling boiled snails.


Sausage and noodle?!


Grilled beef, chicken, pork...


FuFu, as always, disturbed the kids.


The have better smiles than any of those kids in the city.


Still the V pose rocks.


Wish they would have a better future.


This grandpa had gone through the toughest time.



We came to a very nice restaurant for dinner.


Seafood tomyam and dry chicken curry.


The night market.


So many different kind of meats - wonder was there dog meat?


The street - at 9pm.

We didn't really enjoy the night life in Cambodia. Because we needed to get up early for the earliest bus the next day for Siem Reap, Phnom Penh and then Saigon.


Good morning, Phnom Penh.


I snapped these pictures while Annable was in the toilet.


We gotta skipped the breakfast.


The stall that selling biscuits and newspapers.


We took the bus back to Saigon just downstairs.


We stopped at a restaurant to answer the call of nature.


We had to cross the river again.


Annabel was staring at the kids.


Kid with her little brother was begging money from us.


We gave all (though no much) Cambodia Riel to the kids.


Damn, we had missed the bus.


Sorry, i couldn't help you, gotta rush for the bus.


After couple of hours, we came to the border.


Goodbye Cambodia.


Xin Chao (hello) Vietnam.


The Vietnamese immigration hall.



What a cute Cambodian twins.


Back to Saigon, finally.


Lunch time.


Cheers - it's a long half day travelling from Phnom Penh.


The famous Vietnamese beef soup noodles.


The fried rice.


The rice rolls.


And the fruits.

Annabel was going back to her friend's house. After sending her off, i headed back to the love hotel. I spotted a spring rolls restaurant on the half way walking back. Without hesitation, i walked in and sat down for second round.


Oh, spring rolls.


The chili that increases your appetite.


The fresh sugar cane juice.


My first two spring rolls - prawn and Chinese sausage.


The Vietnamese style salad.


But, these nice combination still not enough for FuFu.


I ordered again - observe her expression.


Chinese sausage spring rolls and the dessert! Yummy Yummy.


Don't know why FuFu is always so popular wherever he goes.


FuFu 2in1 postcards - Cambodian postcards + Vietnamese stamps.

I spent the whole night writing postcards to my friends. I didn't meet up Andy since it was a tiring trip back from Cambodia. I called it a night early for the next day's Mekong River trip with Annabel.

Cambodia Part One
Cambodia Part Two
Cambodia Part Three

以前本来要到那Killing馆看看~但和宝贝讨论后一致决定 ... 不要去~ 哈哈哈!因为感觉怨气很重,所以我们不想靠近,呵呵!

[SK] said...

i didn't go to Phnom Penh, but i think this is not bad also huh?? at least there are more things to see by the river than the Tonle Sap.. we were being conned to pay USD20 for the boat ride around the lake, but infact that is just less than 1% of the lake and there is NOTHING to see at all!! poooi, my worst impression of the kingdom started then~~

Kai and Baobei : 其實沒什麽好怕的 怨氣也不是很重 又不會很貴 竟然都去了phnom penh 爲何不去Killing馆看看呢?


SK : hey tonle sap is in phnom penh one la, or am i wrong??!! anyway you are too dumb to get conned, but that's a good lesson for you i guess =) at least you would be alert from that incident onwards =)$20 for a lesson is not a big deal ya to you at least :D

+Ant+
