In Pictures: City Scape of Yangon

pictures, Travel

Shwedagon Pagoda is beautiful but so is the city scape of Myanmar. Although getting around was difficult because everything was in Burmese (and Google translate hasn’t learnt Burmese yet, by the way), I did enjoy the scenes of Yangon very much. Besides, looking for street food was fun, because with the language barrier, you’ll always be in for a surprise!

Grace and I call this the Burmese version of Chendol (a Peranakan dessert common in Southeast Asia). Again, I’m not sure what it’s called but I do prefer Singapore and Malaysia Chendol to this.

Many girls learn how to become nuns at a young age. They usually walk to the monastery together early in the morning.
