From Penang, I made my way eastwards to the island of Perhentian Besar. This was my only beach stop in this trip, and I was pretty excited to laze around in the sand.
Malaysia was one of my last stops in this trip, before going back to Singapore. I took the international express train from Bangkok to Butterworth, where I took a ferry to Penang Island. I met up with Wei, a long time online friend, who took me around the island.
“What can do you in Batanes,” people ask, when we get to talking about one of my favorite places in the Philippines. “Nothing,” I’d answer. The same can be said for Luang Prabang.
From Cambodia, I crossed overland to Thailand for the weekend before catching a Bangkok Airways flight to Luang Prabang, Laos. I caught a terrible cold somewhere in between Siem Reap and Bangkok, and I spent the entire Saturday in my hostel room resting, since I’m going to be suspect for having A(H1N1) with my cold (thankfully, no cough and fever).
I was feeling considerably better by Sunday, and I spent the day outdoors, first getting lost in Chinatown and somehow stumbling upon a shop that sell 1/6 doll clothes and accessories, then exploring the two temples I missed during my first trip to Thailand: Wat Po and Wat Arun. Between the two, I appreciated Wat Arun more. I think Sayuri liked it there too.
Before setting off for Singapore, I browsed through eBay to look for a lens that would let me take wide angle shots and zoom in without breaking the bank. I found a Nikon 18-135mm lens that fits my budget, and asked my brother to pick it up for me. Of course, this meant that I wasn’t able to fully practice with the lens before setting off for my trip!
Actually, that title is inaccurate since I’m *still* in Southeast Asia. What I mean is, I’m back from my Southeast Asian backpacking trip. I brought Sigrid and Tina with me, but they stayed behind at my brother’s flat in Singapore, while I went off explore Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Malaysia with Sayuri and Yuiichiro.
A reader e-mailed me asking for help in selling her Pinky St collection. She sent me a long list of Pinky St dolls, that has a great mix of regular release girls, as well as semi-rare and rare special edition dolls like Air Gear Akito/Agito, Mono Comme Ca, Winter Wonderfest Suu and Gunslinger Girl Henrietta.
Please note that these are secondhand Pinky Street dolls. Though they have been taken out of their boxes, they are in good condition, and have all their accessories intact. The entire list is available after the jump.
After Tina had her haircut, we trooped over to UCC for coffee, air conditioning and breakfast for Rotch. We were seated in a booth, and with all our excess baggage (a.k.a. doll carriers), there was hardly enough place for the dolls and the drinks.
Luckily, there was this lighted ledge right beside the booth. Perfect spot for keeping the dolls in sight and out of possible spills!
Though I think he’s confusing Tina with Aki… Or maybe he was mesmerized by Tina’s outfit?
Thank you Kaoko for letting me in on the group order from Cancan. Also, thanks for this awesome top. Tina loves it very very much.
