I spotted this moment at the Khoo Kongsi Temple in Penang, Malaysia.  A little girl and her mother are sharing a prayer together. It was during Chinese New Year so the beautiful temple was packed!  I was so lucky to get to see the excitement and celebration centered around the wonderful holiday!

A young girl enjoying the ferry ride over to Penang

Penang, Malaysia is an island reachable by bridge or ferry.  When I took my minibus trip from Hat Yai to Penang, my driver decided to take the ferry!  What luck! I loved the relaxing trip over and got some great shots of a family enjoying the trip as well. 

Penang was one of the most diverse cities I have ever experienced.  Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu, Christian, Penang has it all.  And they seemlingly live in harmony, which was such an amazing thing to see!

Future Lovers

Two little lovebirds taking a stroll on the beach

While taking a stroll at Pak Nam, Lang Suan, I spotted these two children on their way to the water.  They could very well be brother and sister, but in my eyes, they’re future is already set.  They are going to be childhood sweethearts and grow old together… right??  Right.

A fisherman trolling through the river in Pai

(written April 16, 2010) I arrived in Pai today and decided to take a walk along the river.  I was expecting something a little bigger, but I guess this would have to do since it is in fact the dry season.  I spotted this fisherman trolling for dinner a little before sunset.

The most adorable boys who just wanted to smile for the camera!

(written on April 19) Today I explored Pai by motorbike!  It was my first time ever driving a motorbike and it was so much fun.  I got completely lost in the hills and somehow ended up on the road back to Chiang Mai.  After a full day of exploring, I ended up at a waterfall full of small children playing.  It was so much fun to watch the kids jump from immense heights and land in shallow water.  It made me cringe every time, but somehow they survived (I’m sure they’ve been doing it every day since they were born).

I sat atop one of the rocks and shot picture after picture of the boys airborne and landing in the water.  Soon enough, two of them came over and started posing for me.  They were the most adorable little boys and as soon as I would snap a picture, they would run over and check it out, laughing the entire time.  I got some amazing pictures and they got some good laughs!

A marriage ceremony in a hilltribe village

(written on April 17, 2010) I went on my first hilltribe trek today in the mountains of Pai.  I was extremely excited to finally get some hiking in and see the villages in the heart of Northern Thailand.  I booked a trip with one of the local tour guides and when we arrived at the first village, he informed us that his friend’s sister was getting married and that we would be able to see the ceremony!  So incredibly cool!

They let us into the marriage house and told us that we were also allowed to take pictures!  Perfect timing!  I poked my head in and caught the moment where the two loverbirds were getting their hands bound together to symbolize the lifelong commitment they were about to embark on.

Such an amazing experience!

A man hard at work on the Chao Phraya River

When I took my personal longtail boat ride through the channels of the Chao Phraya River (one of my favorite spots in Bangkok) I spotted this man hard at work.  I’m not exactly sure what he is hard at work doing, but nonetheless I thought this was interesting.
