Lily and Madeleine "Paradise"

Run away with me tonight
Let the moon bathe us in its light
Come on I’ll take you to paradise, to paradise

The blending of their voices is spot on and the melody makes me want to close my eyes smile as I slowly sway my head back and forth. It's a feel-good music and it does makes you want to bathe in the moonlight.

I've always loved indie music, especially when it's sang by serenading voices like these. This is the kind of music that most labels would probably take caution in producing because the market is limited to a niche, but thanks to the internet music like these could now be listened to without having to support big record label companies. Yeah...I have issues with the corporate world.

The White Temple of Chiang Rai (Wat Rong Khun)

When I realized that our Indochina trip was a go and that we were going to Chiang Mai, I couldn't help but insist going to this place. This wasn't initially in my bucket list, but it immediately became a must-see after I saw photos of the temple online. It's in the province of Chiang Rai, a three-hour ride from Chiang Mai, Thailand. Despite it's modern-artistic-white-washed exterior it's actually a place of worship and is a Buddhist temple. It was such a disappointment that we weren't allowed inside the temple when we got there, but I love the place nonetheless. There's more to Wat Rong Khun than just the usual pictures being shown online. There are museums and wishing areas for visitors. Chalermchai Kositpipat started the project in 1997, but the earthquake last May has resulted into bad damages that they needed repairs in certain areas. Creating a detailed marvel like this cannot be rushed, I just really wish I could have entered the temple when we were there.
