Yangon in August
Early riser, monks are a common sight in Yangon. I have huge respect for them because of the choice they have made to live simply and bless for others.
Fave new hideout.

Was coaxed to try out the goodies on this platter right outside Shwedagon. I was squeamish, if you must know, but I tried them all and found it not as bad as my mind had made me think. Though they are a tad too oily.
Massive love for the spanking new Nikon Df Dslr. It’s not mirrorless, it’s Dslr gone retro, hipster. Absolutely love it.
Get ready to burn some hard earned kachings for this baby. Now let’s see how it fares.

Visiting a 100 years old monastery in Yangon was probably one of the highlights of our trip to Burma - here we were in one of the many dorms within the monastery lived by commoners and a 100 years-old monk (I really love this wooden antler head taxidermy; I wonder how old it is).
The living space is really not in the best condition nor comfort but they are not complaining. Daily there are many volunteers who come by to cook and clean for the ailing monks. We are truly blessed to have such rare opportunity and definitely something I will not forget for a while.
