Last weekend I went to Siem Reap, Cambodia! I had such an amazing time. I had a fab guide that showed me around during the day, and then I was on my own to hang out and explore in the evening. My guide was also very comfortable with the camera, and got a ton of great pictures for me! Here's my weekend...

Day 1:

On the stairs at Ta Keo.

I thought this was the coolest picture! I had no idea that face was behind me like that until he showed me the picture. Too cute.
One of my favorite temples, Angkor Thom. I loved all the faces!

Day 2:
Psa Leu.. Khmer word for big market. :)
Floating Village..
Sweet girl excited to be in a picture.

I couldn't help myself buying from this girl! She was too cute and so smart.
 Day 3:
Sunrise at Angkor Wat. Beautiful! 
Me @ Angkor Wat.

Monks walking into the temple

At the Banteay Srei
The detail here was amazing.

Leave it to me to obsess over all the kids in this city! I wanted them all.

Fab sunset from my Tuk Tuk.. going to dinner my last night.

Kenny and I took a little bff weekend up to Penang last week. The trip wasn't exactly what we had planned, but it turned out to be a great adventure anyways!

Penang is known for the variety and deliciousness of its food. So, here are our food adventures!

I was going to take a picture of just the sign- but these guys posed, so I had to include them! Hah. This is  apparently one of the best fried noodles place in Penang. It was super busy, and definitely didn't disappoint.

Mee Goreng. So spicy- so delish.

Gurney Drive:
Wonton Mee

The best freaking Char Kway Teow. 

Rojak. This was the only thing I had all weekend that I didn't like. It's got a bunch of cut up fruit, with this like shrimp paste sauce nastiness on top. Then, sprinkled with peanuts? nothankyou.

Nasi Kandar on our way home from a super long bus ride. I got my fav, tandoori chicken and naan.

This makes my mouth water! Roasted duck, and some beyond tasty pork. Last meal before heading out!

Some touristy things:
Fort Cornwallis. Lots of history and stuff here. Meh.

So cool when it's coming. Not so cool when you're in it.

We got to hang out with these 2 fabulous ladies, Selda and Yasmine, during our trip.  

On Monday morning I took a photography class with a phenomenal photographer, David Hagerman. He taught me how to use my camera even more, and taught me some amazing things about photography. I can't wait to take some awesome pictures! Here are a couple I took that morning with him that I really liked..

And of course there's always the misc. stuff that sticks out to me on a trip...
Not the names I'm used to seeing. Still no "meAgan". 

I have a Texas radar! ;)
