Okay lah, all you horny pervs can get lost cos this post isn't what you will want to read. I know the title is a bit wtf but yeah I did get super wet at Siem Reap, Cambodia for the Sangkranta Festival! (Songkran Festival)
This year, 13th April marked the Cambodian New Year and Cambodians party pretty hard as it is the biggest festival of the year. Why was I there exactly? I'm actually part of the Angkor Beer Street Party's Event Team over there handling the main event!
It was a 4 day street party where there were plenty of water fights and something I didn't expect, POWDER fights!But of course, even though its kind of a workation, i still had plenty of free time myself to roam around to explore Cambodia
You can check out my video here:
As for the first day we arrived, we pretty much had the whole day to ourselves so we started our exploring around Siem Reap

Beer Pong time!
As the event day came, we had to work for 4 nights in a row, as I said, Cambodians party really hard and the festival goes on and on and on! I was in charge of the 360 roving team which allows the fans to come around, snap a 360 selfie and post it up on Facebook with Angkor Beer's Branding. pretty cool huh?

After the crazy parties, I decided to do some cultural visits to get to know more about Cambodian culture and history. First stop, The Angkor National Museum, where you can learn a lot of its history and legends before going to Angkor Wat itself. Sadly no photography was allowed in the museum
Cost: $12 USD
I would recommend coming here first so that you'll understand Angkor Wat better when you head there.

We started up at Bayon Temple, pretty amazing with the four faces of buddha
Ta Prohm Temple (Where roots grow all over the temple)
And of course, Angkor Wat!
The Churning of the Milk Sea
This is the face: Ok Lah Kao Tim adi
I didn't post up all the temples on this post cos I guess it'll bore you too much! better to just head there and see it for yourself!
This Cambodia trip was really fulfilling. You can get up here with a shoe string budget and you'll still be treated like a king! Definitely a place I would visit again as its so memorable!
next stop: Bandung, Indonesia!
