sneak peak of southeast asia

here's a teaser of photos from my adventures so far... some from malaysia and some from cambodia. enjoy!

the petronas towers of kuala lumpur.


i have endless pictures of food.


my new favorite shoes. luckily, she removed them when she entered the temple so i didnt have to keep suspiciously following her to get a photo!


monkey beach.... where the monkeys out smarted us and stole our juice.


view of penang from the largest buddist temple in malaysia.


with my traveling companions, eating with our fingers :)


cambodia...


i love the written script, even though its hard to look beyond the amazing motorcyclists!

Uh, this doesn't look good. Hopefully by the time N Korea destroys US, there will be edible food elsewhere in the world.

Did you take a photography class? You're pictures are just wonderful. I've never taken classes but your photos look the way I wish mine would!

The black things are century eggs, look old but good taste though.

I think it is salted duck egg. It is the way to ferment the egg. It is saly but quite nice if eat with rice and fried chicken.
