Hey all! Anyone miss me here?
Well I just came back from my Mystical Myanmar backpacking trip a while ago. Been so busy trying to catch up with my work and sleep!
I was there for 5 days 4 night and it was a very tiring trip but fulfilling one because we managed to traveled 1500km to 4 different regions i.e Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay and Inle Lake. And 3 out of 4 nights we spent sleeping in the bus to travel from one place to another. We spent about RM880 which includes my Airasia flights, transportation fee, 1 night accommodation fee, food, entrance fee and a little bit of souvenirs!
I have so much to share with you all about this trip because I realized there are not much info on the internet that you can find. So before I can do that, let me take a nice break and do sit back and enjoy a few pictures which I took using my new camera Olympus E-PL7 (oh my this is such an amazing camera!)
Initially we have a a few more friends who supposed to come along, but all pulled out last minutes. Anyway I had fun travelling with my bff Lam.. he is so chatty and crazy!
Not only that we also managed to meet new friends during out trip! On the first day, we managed to know this very fun couple Cheryl and Juno from Penang during our trip and we decided to travel together! Ahh.. that's the beauty of backpacking.. to meet different people!

Lots of huge & beautiful Buddha statutes in Myanmar, especially Bagan!
Beautifying my skin the local way! Met this super friendly lady and she insisted me to try this yellow liquid extract taken from Thanaka tree. This extract is very interesting because most Myanmar girl applied this on their face. I was told this has the benefits of sun protection, cure acne and promote smooth skin. It is also an anti-fungal cream too!
We also went to Kuthodaw Pagoda in Mandalay is the world's largest book stands upright! The book is actually the each small shrine behind me house a marble slab inscribed with texts! And there are 729 of them!
Beautiful sunset in U Bein Bridge in Mandalay!
