A picture paints a thousand words?

(Please try not scroll down until you read the entry)

I was mentally prepared to pen down a zewtpinion until I realised it’s going to be Friday. Guess I will have to save it for next week. It’s going to be a little too heavy for our Friday brain. I hope I will still remember what I want to talk about when Monday arrives.

Speaking about my minds, mine decided to bring me back 2 years, to the time when I spent 10 days travelling between Cambodia and Vietnam. I will always remember that trip due to the amount of co-incidences in it. How many if you may ask… how many of you want to know? Well, trust me… there were quite a substantial amount of co-incidences. But I guess that’s a story for another day.

For today, I would like to show you one particular picture which my friend took during that trip. It was taken in one of the temples within Angkor Wat.

Here is the picture…








































So… does a picture paints a thousand words? My guess would be… you are not quite wordless. What do you think it is?

Happy weekend!

Wah... looked kinda scary at first with the long hair... what was she(?) doing?? Ok, looked like peeing but no ah... o.O

Gee, weekend again???

Seaqueen said...

I know it's a small gal but she seems to be looking the other way. I'm lost. Not too sure what I'm supposed to see. Probably due to too much alcohol in my system at the mo.

Helen said...

Paranormal activity? lol

conan_cat said...

well... i guess it is a little gal, angkor wat is famous for having very poor kids begging for money and i guess she's just one of them... rite? :)

irene said...

Eeyer... kinda creepy to see at 1:45am lah dude! *shudders*

tingtitlei said...

its... a boy with long hair desecrating the sacred place. haha

angele said...

Hmm..It's a lil girl for sure.But I dunno...there's something abt the position of her head or something O.o

Haha.Maybe too much imagination la.Maybe it's just a lil kid praying.. *wondering*

Soulblade said...

eh zewt, imagine looking at the picture at 5.13 am, it scares the shit out of me. (not that i am very brave or what naturally, and im actually quite afraid of any supernatural stuffs)

my guess? i would not even want to take a second/better look anymore. eww... i will not read your blog for a while until the picture is gone from the front page.

may said...

yerrrr, think innocent with picture la! small girl, in front of 'altar", after putting down the joss sticks, saw a butterfly and looked up... kan? kan?

Rashikaps said...

Too scared to make a wish, is she?

Sunshine said...

eyeerr.. your picture scared me, i went to Angkor before too, my friend bought this very antic old wooden bowl...

and the "owner" of the bowl followed her back...

amboi.... scary experience

Cirnelle said...

What do I think what is? I don't get your question. She's obviously looking at the person on the other side whose shadow can be seen on the right side of the picture.

Girls, this is a lesson. Never keep long hair. It scares the shit outta bloggers.

narrowband said...

I went there last year. That girl's looking at someone standing further down the hallway. And incidentally, someone decided to take her photo during that moment :p

me said...

hey, that's me!! what are you doing with my pic?? *pushes hair out of aunty face*

Hor ny Ang Moh said...

The wind is blowing on her back & u just happen to take that pic at that moment of time!

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

amanda said...

zEWT, U SCARED THE SHIT OUT OF ME.. but after the taking few min looking at the pic..i just realise she is a human..My god. early in the morning, do u have to do that to me ??

Jason said...

The entire scene looks creepy but it's definitely a little girl who was probably facing the altar praying or something and then someone on the far right called her name and she turned to look at him/her. No?

ehon said...

it's an anak patung! right?

Princess Eileen said...

the little boy/gal trying to "piss off God!"

Deisy said...

zewt, u trying to say the girl in the picture looks very pity, or you trying to say she 'was not supposed' to be in the picture?

whisperingshout said...

What is wrong with the pic? I catch...rather, see no ball.

ngy said...

Bad hair day

Jonny said...

At first i was freaked out. But then, It looks like:

the girl is in a "ready to dash away" posture once she grabbed those thing that looked like $$ on the golden coloured bowl.

no idea dude.

Calvin's Wife said...

Zewt, what the hell are you trying to pin point lah on this photo.. It's F*cking scary okay~!!

Somemore she is in red, in an old historical building, and her hair is all over... cant see her face.. though I think she's facing the other way cos her arse is pointing out this way... and she has a scrunchie on her wrist..

But it is scary okieeee...

Terra Shield said...

A character from a Japanese/Korean horror flick?

It's downright creepy-lah :D

Wuching said...

just a kid, nothing paranormal about it

Cirnelle said...

You know what would be really scary? If this was a picture of a 'girl' looking AT the cameraman.

Then what it would really be is how you should pack an extra pair of pants in case you should piss in your pants taking pictures of old tourist spots.

alan zed said...

dude, you just made it a freaky friday, you know that ? nice pic btw. dont tell me you snap it, bro.

5xmom.com said...

Junie said...

she look more like she's leaning against the side of the wall and her head is turned to the right side looking at something... i think.

first look at the pic was indeed very scary.

Soulblade said...

haha~ okok.. on second look, she does look human-ish.. maybe it's the timing when i read your blog (5-ish am) that's why freaks me out.

adrian said...

The wind is blowing from behind her as can be seen in the candle. She needs to go to the toilet but her parents r not close by. She's in the middle of "tahan berak". :P

anigma said...

I almost choked on my cereal this morning when I saw the pic! LOL! Shit! Goose bumps now and it's quiet in office!

It doesn't help either that Siem Reap or rather Phnom Penh were subject to horrific genocide that killed millions.

The Malaysian Life said...

Imagine how people's imagination can run wild just by looking at a picture. We make inferences based on our own prior experiences.

zewt said...

the malaysian life - imagination is quite powerful... just look at the innovation around us. it can also be lethal. in this case... just pure creepy.
