The flight was at 9:35 am and I got off at the Yangon International Airport at ard 11am. When I just got off, waited on the immigration line, I already got the message from my little girl who was waiting for me just outside of the airport. We were so happy and excited to meet each other after 6 months, and of cuz, a selfie should be made to remark this moment 🙂
I guess it can be more interesting if I can know more about the story behind this pagoda (gotta research about that and then update later). I also saw the pple there they use the water to “shower” for the statue (there’re so many names of the statue so I dont rmb at all). After that, we continued our exploring trip in Yangon at the Karaweik Garden, which is not too far from the pagoda. The Garden is not too different from in Vietnam, pretty and large. There’s a quite big lake located in the garden which has many lotuses. I guess if I came there at the lotus season, it would be really beautiful.
Quite like a tourist there (and actually I was a tourist), took photos with everything – even the coconut trees, the balloons they used to shoot a music video, bamboo trees, umbrella…. Thanks Hkawn for always telling me take pictures with this, take pictures with that – Im sure when u come to Vietnam, at least u gonna have more than 1000 photos :)).
I visited Yangon when it was almost summer – so there were a lot of flamboyant trees and also “hoa bò cạp vàng” (which I dont know how to call it in English). And orange flamboyant flowers which was the first time I got to see.
So when we got out of the garden, it already passed the sunset time. Mung needed to leave cuz he had another meeting but we had a fun time together. So me and Hkawn went on with our trip by visiting a mall to have dinner at a rather creepy Chinese restaurant – and that was the first time I tried the food by hands. Uhm, it has rice, chickens, fried vegetables…. (I dont rmb again :)), just rmb that it was good, but a little too much that two of us couldnt finish all)
