Throwback Bangladesh – Working Woman

Throwback Dhaka: Fish Monger

Back in 2010 – I made a trip to Dhaka for a holiday (not work). It was a great trip. It gives me an insight of the daily lives of Bangladeshi. We see them in Malaysia, but we never appreciated their existence. If one were to make a trip to Dhaka – we can see…

Typically when me and my friends go for a photography trip, we will always try to visit the villages and obviously will look at ways where we can contribute back to them. In my recent trip to Bangladesh, me and the rest of the gang visited a village in Panchuria (which is our host village)….

This is the typical public transport in Bangladesh, apart from the typical trishaw and buses. Seriously, its really a big nuisance – but i guess its probably the cheapest alternative to other means of transport. Well… I did try out once,.. here’s the experience….. gulp… Kakakakakka!
