So where do I start? After my wifey's surprise Maldives treat and the Bangkok assignment in January, a few other things happened on the way to today:
There was the run to Phuket and Sukhothai where I covered King Ramkamhaeng's birthday, among other things:
Then it was off to Myanmar where I photographed Yangon and Inle:
Afterwards, I headed off with my PhotoTrekkers to Bhutan where we shot the Punakha Dromche:
Not bad for the first half of the year, I tell ya:
Then without further ado, I hied off to Kuala Lumpur to shoot Islamic architecture and hang with Hainanese old-timers:
A few weeks of rest followed, then I promptly boarded at plane to Hanoi, where I hopped aboard the night train to Sapa Valley:
... and then I found myself back in Myanmar - whopeee - for the year's second PhotoTrek!
Philippines next - this time to Coron and Calauit Island:
Which happened back-to-back with an excursion down south to meet the Manobo tribespeople of Butuan:
Afterwards I stayed home to spend the Singapore Jubilee weekend with my wife and daughter:
Needless to say I'm happy with how this year is going.
A little tired, but yes - very happy :)
