Phnom Penh Vacation

Another vacation, another adventure! I managed to head to Phnom Penh last month for a Business Vacation. Its been about 4 years since I've stepped foot into Cambodia, and I went to Siem Reap the last time. 

So what job was I handling in Cambodia? I was handling the digital elements at Hennessy Artistry Cambodia! Its pretty exciting as this is my first job in another country, and it wont be as comfortable as I am back in KL

I stayed in Phnom Penh for a week, setting up the equipment with the suppliers etc, and of course I had time for myself to do a little sight seeing. So for the first few days, it was pretty much travelling around to my suppliers warehouses and getting ready up to the event

1 dollar beers and cheap food!


As the event day came, it was pretty exciting as firstly, Cambodians have a different type of culture unlike ours, so their way of partying is a little different. About 1,500 guest came and with performances from DJ Andina, Kartoon Network, DJ Minx, and Diane group from Korea

After the event ended, We finally had some free time to travel around and enjoy the sightseeing of Phnom Penh. Andrew and I started off at the Cambodian Royal Palace, there are time slots to go in and luckily we were just in time for one when we reached

A model of Angkor Wat

After the Royal Palace, we headed over to the National Museum as we wanted to know more on the history about Cambodia, but I was a little disappointed as they mainly showcased most of Angkor Wat stuff, which I saw most of it in my previous trip

But other than that, it is still a beautiful place and is worth a visit if you're heading over to Phnom Penh

With Andrew & Geraldyne


As my vacation came to an end, we went over to Nagaworld for a clubbing experience and also the casino. The club was full of...girls you're able to take home...but I went for where it counts most, the CASINO! Managed to win some cash back so I'm pretty happy on that!

Overall it was a great experience at Cambodia, and I wouldn't mind going back as there's still so much to explore at the outskirts! Thanks for reading and I'll be updating soon!
