Siem Reap

Desktop holiday for you: Asian Edition - happy days travelling with friends in beautiful Siem Reap (Part 1)....

My own bit of sunshine (in the plane, on the way to Siem Reap).....
Happiness is: being on a plane, on the way to a holiday (aka. Flying away from work).....


My first breakfast in Siem Reap - soupy pork noodles & really wonderful iced coffee (At the Soup Dragon Cafe). The noodles were just ok, but the coffee *Drooool* - it was so good!:
Tasted like Chinese style pork noodles.....

J whispers, "I miss yooouuuu....".....


The main Siem Reap town area:
So colourful, and dusty too!.....


First stop: Angkor Thom entrance!
Some of the stone guardians protecting the gate.....

Big ancient "highway" :) .....



Next: Our first temple visit, Bayon temple:
A small looking but beautiful temple.....

Many decapitated statues (defaced/ stolen during the war).....

Comparing feet :).....

Beautifully detailed carvings adorn the walls.....

Hordes of tourists in the temple area.....

The famous smiling faces of Bayon (Hmmm, I wonder what they're thinking about?).....


Lunch time! Local Cambodian food, washed down with an ice cold local beer - BLISS!
Hot day + ICE COLD beer = happy J.....

Having a bite of local Amok - sort of like green curry - yum!.....

We were given a free dessert that was so so yummy - like a thin layer of mochi paste wrapped around a small chunk of slightly melted palm sugar, with a sprinkling of young coconut shaving (I guess it's a bit like onde-onde but somehow much more refreshing).....


I think I'll stop here for now - I'm afraid I'm overdosing you with photos.. :)
(I took so many photos in this trip - Siem Reap is so beautiful!)

Hugs,
J

點交:
所謂點交就是法院會將法拍屋的使用權及所有權一併交由買受人。
根據強制執行法第九十九條之前項規定:法院必須將解除債務人之佔有使用關係,執行點交予買受人。所以只要法院拍賣筆錄上註明點交,其買受人都可以申請法院來執行交屋。
不點交:
所謂不點交就是法院會將法拍屋的所有權交由買受人,但使用權,法院並不會交由買受人。
如拍賣筆錄上註明不點交,則法院不受理買受人申請執行交屋,縱然買受人向法院買到了法拍屋的產權,
但其交屋的工作就得經由買受人自行與佔用人協調,如協調不當,那買受人便無法受到法院的保障。
