So we are ahem on Day 2 of my Siem Reap trip.
I wasn’t feeling well the night before. On day 2 the nausea feeling is still present. I feel like puking all the time. Day 2 is the day I plan to watch sunrise at Angkor Wat but I had to cancel it. More pity is my tuk-tuk driver who waited for me at 4am. Of course I called lobby to cancel the ride so that he doesn’t have to wait for me. I’m not upset for not going to Angkor Wat for the sunrise because I had my sunrise view on the flight here which is outrageously stunning though the only thing missing is the Angkor Wat silhouette. Haha
We had breakfast at the hotel at 8am and then went back to sleep. Kekeke We only went out again at 10am+ to check out the Center Market (known as Phsar Kandal to the locals).
These are the only photos I managed to take because although I still have some ‘puking feeling’, the shopping at least take my mind off the matter for awhile. There were not many tourist. Maybe it’s still early morning. Managed to grab 2 sling bags @ US$4. But I gotta tell you 1 thing. Most of the stalls sell basically the same goods. So after awhile you kinda lose interest.
After the short shopping therapy, we went to Angkor Market (supermarket) to top up our drinking water, some bread & pads! Then it’s back to hotel. I’m still on my medication but not feeling any better. Plus of all days my period came. Hahaha We figured it’s better to rest today… so no ‘Indiana Jones adventure’ today if you know what I mean.
We hang out a little while at the hotel’s lobby, chit-chatting with the staff there. It was fun. Most important of all we learned an important Cambodian custom which in turn will benefit our shopping later on. Will divulge in the next post. Hehe
Our lunch is bread & fruits in our room. More rest. After taking my medicine, my nausea was getting from bad to worse. Finally I puked. Know what I vomited out? My antibiotics. At last I knew what was causing the nausea. I stopped taking all my medicine immediately.
Had to get my butt out of the hotel in the evening for some food. I choose to have our dinner at Red Piano just because the tuk-tuk driver stopped right in front of the restaurant.
Plus I wanted to see what’s so great at Red Piano (used to be the hang out place for Angelina Jolie when she filmed Tomb’s Raider at Angkor Archaeological Park.
We ordered pork fillet set (left) and chicken breast set.
I had a bowl of rice which is complimentary.
Total dinner + sprite @ US$10.50
It was the worst dinner ever! I’m not sure whether it’s the food or because my stomach was churning so badly but my counterpart is not enjoying her food either. Half-way through I had to run to the toilet for diarrhea business. Felt a little better after that but still have problem finishing the food. So we end up ‘tapau’ some of it.
Restaurant along Pub Street. I really love the atmosphere & architecture. Old + new.
At night we had 1 hour soothing foot massage @ US$6/person. A nice way to end my horrible day.
That’s all for day 2. Bizarre right?
