You can say it will be one of my longest work/shoot trip ever!
It will be a trip that requires a more extensive planning, involving the need to live, work and play across
while staying connected to my team half way across the globe. Camera gears are secondary here. Mobility and work productivity are my priority. The hardware I will be carrying will in fact minimal but will consists of at least two bodies and three lenses.
Angkor Thom - Bayon,
The temple of Angkor Wat is what made Cambodia secure her rights for funding from South Korea, India, Japan, proudly being recognised as one of the seven wonders site of the world today.
The compound actually constitutes a vast number of other religious monuments, all architectured around Hinduism. As according to sources, Cambodia has been influenced by the influx of both Hindu and Chinese, bringing with them their unique interpretations of their gods, buddha, maiden angels.
Being war torn with a glorious past, its a country riddles with revolutions, liberations, protectionism theory (from China) and a historical tactical edge of her impassable “elephant” armoured fleet that helped her conquered Vietnam, Myanmar, Laos and even Thailand.
The door of trade is now open in Cambodia, with tourism, garment manufacturing and rice exports being the dominant engines behind her economy. It’s also fast becoming that new spot where snow-stricken tourists now seek solace and warmth in her warm hospitality and cheap living.
For an American dollar a day, a bicycle is all you need to explore its tourist attractions, food and diverse culture. Give it another few years, and you would probably see a fresh, valid reason to even bring your family here.
Welcome to the Temple of Angkor Wat!

The Killing tree - which executioners used to kill both toddlers and kids. The tough bark and trunks works ideally to crush the soft skulls of kids flung against it.
