What the Duck in Siem Reap - Part Three

 After the trip to the lake, WTD was hoping to get a taste of Amok fish and other local fares. He decided to have his dinner at Viroth Restaurant.

Nice ambience and friendly staff.

Food was great and cheap, but he wished there was sufficient lighting to know what he was eating!

What the Duck in Siem Reap - Part Two

Continuing from >>What the Duck in Siem Reap - Part One

But first, WTD found a watering hole to combat the intense heat. Khmer Kitchen

And draft beer is going at around USD $0.50 to $1 per glass here in Siem Reap. What more could a duck ask for.
Passing by lotus fields on the way to Tonle Sap, the largest freshwater lake in the region.

Gingy makes frens in Tokyo

As Wat the Duck took a sunny tropical holiday, Gingy pranced amongst sakura blossoms in Tokyo. Having just heard about the quake in Jpn yesterday, Gingy wished all of Japan's residents safety and and peace to overcome this calamity.

Missing his friends at home, he wondered if he could find new friends here?

He didn't. But found an interesting sign while taking the subway. Having only seen brown bears, Gingy wondered why these 'brown bears' wore sleeping masks with 2 eyeholes. *weird stuffed toy in jpn* - he thought.

But... Gingy took back his words when he met the red panda while q-ing up for sushi. The red panda is also termed the lesser panda (?!).

The lesser panda proved she was not lesser to all other bears (don't you dare talk abt size in front of her!), by demonstrating commendable agility in balancing on top of a Georgia coffee bottle.

REAL pandas. Now we're talking.

Gingy decided to kidnap one back to the hotel: Camouflage, panda! He commanded.

Tada! Presenting BuiBui, the Japanese panda with humpty dumpty special powers.

They chatted like 2 old friends. It didn't matter BuiBui spoke Hokkien-tinged Japanese (?) and Gingy spoke Scottish-accented Cantonese (??).
Kawaii-ness is the international language of stuffed toy land :D

Wow! What an intelligent looking cat! He must be the lord of Namjatown. Gingy was keen to befriend this powerful looking cat. Sometimes, he wished he too could look intellectual, so people will take him seriously.

He didn't find the powerful cat. But stared wistfully in awe at how this powerful cat even displayed power (literally) in cuisine presentation... He felt hungry and decided to go searching for food.

Look out for Gingy's food adventures in Tokyo (to be contd...)!

What the Duck in Siem Reap - Part One

WTD arrives in Siem Reap airport for a much-needed weekend vacation. With his trusty camera (no its not a pacifier) in tow!
Going through customs was a breeze, and that's the understatement of the year. WTD arrived shortly at his hotel and browsed the Cambodian newspaper.
The amenities at the hotel lobby looked very promising.
