Shwe U Min Cave

This is a post that I should show off my knowledge about the Shwe U Min cave, the pagodas, etc. and instead, I allow the readers know how suck I am in everything. The incidence reminds me of my recent visit to Emerald Buddha, Wat Pho and Wat Arun with one of my dear friends. I had little time to refresh all the facts via Internet and thus I failed to impress my dear friend, who kindly laughed it off to ease my misery. Likewise, I hope the readers could comprehend my lack of knowledge about the cave and enjoy the following photos.

Walk around Shwe U Min Cave

Shwe U Min cave welcomes a lot of visitors in Shan state and I particularly like, of course, to walk around the shops, which sell pickled tea leaves, dried tea leaves, various snacks, and cotton longyi, etc. All the shops are found on the way to Shwe U Min cave a.k.a Golden cave and the people who run the shops are friendly and hospitable. As terribly indecisive as I always am, I couldn’t decide which shops have the best pickled tea leaves, tea leaves and snacks, and as such I bought them from different shops, lol!!!

Homage to Kone Lone Sayartaw

With this post, I simply want to share a few pictures from the trip to pay homage to Kone Lone Sayartaw. 

 I can't help but to post the following snapshot of my young compatriot's smile when she saw me taking her picture at the entrance of the monastery!!!!

Green Tea Restaurant - Pindaya

After spending a couple of hours at the hotel, our cute guide leaded us to Green Tea Restaurant situated on the brink of the lake. All the food was delicious and I would like to thank my fellow travelers, a family of three who allow me to take the following food pictures by my phone before the meal. They seemed a bit surprised but did not show any unpleasant feelings about my gesture and I was quite grateful for their reaction. The peaceful ambiance, a nice view over a lake, a lovely verandah, made our lunch yummier indeed.
