Night at Angkor

One of my favorite streets. The street is narrow but has wide pedestrian for walker and biker. It's not too crowded, and we can cross it anytime. There are some benches in front of a parking lot on this street on which people like to sit to either finish food bought from a small supermarket behind where I stood to capture this photo, or just to meet friend. Though this street is not long, it offers several services such as banks, post office, beauty salons, barber shop,  store, flower shop, music school, fitness center, large parking lot, computer store, craft shop, offices, bus stop, etc.
Can you see pachinko (パチンコ) or Japanese casino at the end of this street? That is the biggest Angkor pachinko  among several pachinkos in town. I'll post more photos of pachinko in the future.

Hiro San: Pachinko ikimashoo (Let's go to pachinko)
Yuri San: Chotto, okane ga arimasen (mmm, I don't have money)

The lighting is dramatic, like it was designed by a talented movie lighting director. Oh, but the photo was seen, designed and conceived by a talented blogger – Henny.

Did Angkor recently open? It looks like there are those congratulatory wreaths out front.

All I know about pachinko was in Tokyo-Ga by Wim Wenders...

Great dusk shot!
Angkor is also the name of a cambodian site I want to visit so much! :-)

@ Christopher: This is Angkor II. Angkor III is already in my file, Angkor I is waiting to be found :). to be honest, I'm still looking for it.
@ Babzy, that's true, I love it, too.
@ Emma, no problem, me too, so little time :).
@ Joo, indeed, but with a camera, people won;t stop staring at you :)
@ Gary, I'm flattered :). Forgive my ignorance, after all this time, I didn't know that's what that fake flower was for.
@ VP, and all I knew about Pachinko was an Indonesian movie with the same tittle, though I never watch it.
@ Kaori, let's go together, just for some snapshots :)
@ JM, wish you a nice Angkor Wat trip.
