Surviving Cambodia

Posted in Photography on November 22, 2007 by shiying86

Next month, I will be heading over to Cambodia for a 5-days trip and I am very much looking forward to it. Besides learning about Angkor Wat in architectural history, there is also its tie-in with Buddhism and many, many more people raving about their experience in Cambodia. Then, I came across this book:

surviving cambodia


Krantz’s evocative collection of images portrays Cambodia as a place of extremes: children playfully dive into dirty rivers that serve as sewer, food source and bathing place; small boys capture lizards in the killing fields and climb trees in search of fruit — all of them seemingly oblivious to the atrocities that occurred where they play. But the ghostly remains of Pol Pot’s regime live amongst the ancient temples and crumbling architecture that at one time represented a dynamic and vital civilization. Presented in color and monochrome, the book is a raw, visual document of the desperate living conditions of modern-day Cambodia, that seeks to convey the tenacity of its people and the resiliency of the human spirit.

Beginnings

Posted in It's my life, Reflections, Thoughts and Musings with tags , on November 22, 2007 by shiying86

There is always a 1st for everything, and this would be my first post. Something, hopefully I can look back in many years/decades and smile back.

To begin something is always the most difficult, but hopefully, when the ball starts rolling, I can snowball this blog. So here, goes!

Dear morphy (short for metta{morpho.sis),

I name you this because I wanted my blog to sound cool and hip. Today, I…gosh, this is getting dry.

Anyway, point in case–my life is transforming every single moment. And just so I don’t lose track of it, I need this. And however much changes take place, I hope that it is done with metta, with love and kindness-for myself and everyone around me. This too, might change, but for now, it describes my stand and grounds me to the change I want to be as I tread along this path call life.
