Thinking this was an albino peacock, the eyes were actually dark, most likely making the condition leucism (an overall reduction in different types of pigment) which is apparently much more common. The peacock jumped on stage after a presenter at Singapore Zoo had finished his talk and promptly showed off his feathers.

Inle Lake is the second largest lake in Myanmar and together with Bagan probably amongst the top must see places in Myanmar. The fishermen on this lake typically stand on the stern with their legs wrapped around the oar to see clearer through the dense reeds and floating plants. Main fish caught is the nga hpein which is a local carp only found on this lake. The lake is under threat by deforestation, overuse of pesticides and climate change.
Inle Lake's fishermen have a unique and distinct way of getting the fish out of the water.

Though destroyed by a fire in WWII, the Mandaly Palace was rebuilt (using force labour) in the 1990s. Though the wall photographed here, is still original from 1859. It was from the last kingdom of Burma before it was colonised by the British.

A 'Nghat' (bird) passes by on the Taungthaman lake near the ancient city of Amarapura in Myanmar.
U Zinn (monks) on the U bein bridge crossing the Taung Tha Man lake in Mandalay. The bridge is believed to be the oldest and longest Teakwood bridge in the world (1.2km). Monks often walk here to go to the Taung Mingi pagoda on the other side. It was actually packed with tourists and shots like these took a lot of patience.

Apparently I had dropped the spare battery at my previous spot (where I was forced to leave due to people in my frame rather looking at their mobile phones than at the sunrise) and some friendly dude asked me: "is this yours?"

Visiting Hội An in Vietnam, various elderly locals are doing their best to take tourists for a short ride over the Thu Bồn river. Our captain didn't speak a word English, but had a huge smile on his face with thumbs up every time we looked at him. Only one teeth left, his smile was contagious and he gracefully paddled us over the water until we were ready to head back.
