Interesting Things To See In Phnom Penh

I didn't get much opportunities to do any sightseeing on buildings (only them UNESCO sites) or parks or even take a nice walk by the river, however; I did manage to take pics of what I see along the drive, during the visit to the orphanage and etc.

Do bare in mind that they have more to offer and I do hope I have a chance to revisit this beautiful city with it's warm hospitality again....real soon. Meanwhile, hope you enjoy my rides (pics *wink*).

Cambodia Post Office in Phnom Penh.

MUST TAKE NOTE. You can only get stamps from here (couldn't get any from my 3 star hotel), it was tough for me as the post office wasn't part of the places to visit in the itinerary. But since I wanted stamps badly for my postcards, the agent was nice enough to drop by. Lucky me, the building was awesome and I manage to snap a few pics. Yeay!

Cambodia version of tuk-tuk, if you notice; almost every country in Asia have their own version :)
And oh! You can also tell whether the owner/driver is a Muslim or not. Cool huh.

Banana fritters-work in progress at the local village next to the orphanage home that we visited. If you see them, try them. A MUST! YUMMEH baby!

Steam errrr.... a type of shellfish, help!!!! I don't know what is is called. Wait, is it siput sedut or Balitong? Help!!!!!

At the Muslim orphanage. Manage by the tour guide and his family - noble huh.

Saw the election party doing their rounds.

My favourite!!! They sell cakes and dessert and ICE CREAM, more outlet in Siem Reap I think, near the old market. Do visit and give it a try.

The palace (hope I got it right) from afaaaaaaar.

KFC is HALAL, owned by a Malaysian apparently (please double check the fact on the ownership though), sharing some of the menu option available and obviously the price (in USD tuh).

The hotel we stayed have a HALAL restaurant, the owner have another franchise in Siem Reap that you can visit. This was taken during the last night with Duta Malaysia.

Workers hard at work, safety measure?

Another HALAL restaurant near the area.... YUMMEH! Love the sambal belacan. Hhehehehehe

This is the Muslim tour guide and his wife that helped us find the orphanage homes and arrange the logisic/transportation during the Kembara Prihatin. I will share and update his contact as soon as I locate the business card.
