13.09.2009 | 印度神遊

講到令我印象最深刻, 同埋一直引以為榮嘅國外公干, 應該非2006年5月嘅印度莫屬喇.. 我其實一直都想去印度呢個神秘國家睇一睇, 嗰一次嘅機會, 簡直就係踏破鐵鞋無覓處啦..

  • 印度人口眾多, 放眼一望全部係皮膚黝黑嘅人, 顯得自己有點鶴立雞群.. 我第一次覺得自己一個人喺街上行回唔安全, 所以全程僱佣私人司機護送..
  • 算係相當落後貧窮嘅一個國家, 交通混亂, 四週沙塵滾滾, 牛糞到處可見.. 閣下若果有緣, 仲有機會見到有人隨街大小二便..
  • 處處都有行乞人士或者兜你講嘢嘅人, 遊客就更係佢哋死纏爛打嘅目標, 每次都要勞煩司機差遣佢哋.. 奉勸大家千其唔好心軟, 唔係就一身蟻架喇..
  • 撇開以上一切, 其實印度係好多值得去嘅地方, 歷史古蹟更加係引人入勝.. 世界奇景之一泰姬陵, 係絕對不可錯過嘅景點!! 我仲記得深深被佢莫名嘅魅力吸引住, 流連忘返添..

其實當時係個受訓課程, 香港或印度二揀一, 結果我揀咗呢個神奇的印度~~
amongst all overseas job assignments, i would say the most unforgettable and i feel proudest of, must be the trip to India in May 2006.. i have actually wanted to visit this mysterious country very much, and this opportunity just came by so perfectly that i have no hesitation at all to go over..

  • India is a very populated country, while i was there i seemed like so outstanding among the darker skin crowd.. this is also the first time i felt unsecured to walk on the street on my own, that was why i have hired a personal driver with me for all the 10 days being there..
  • quite a under-developed and poor country, the traffic is a total mess, everywhere is dusty, and cow dungs everywhere (fresh or dried).. and if you are lucky, bet you, you might bump into somebody peeing/pooing like nobody's business on the street..
  • beggars and touters everywhere in India, and tourists are of course their target, and they seem so determined and never gave up to hook on to one.. all of times i just have to get help from my driver to get them to leave me alone.. little tips here, never be kind-hearted to any of them, or else you will get into trouble later..
  • despite the above, i think India has got lots of places to see, especially the historical monuments they have in the land.. not to miss is of course Taj Mahal, one of the wonders of the world, a sight that makes your India trip incomplete if you have not been there.. i was somehow being fascinated by her mysterious charm, till i was a bit hesitate to leave the place..

it was actually a technical training course, i was given the choice between Hong Kong and India, and i have chosen this Incredible India~~

  1. Wow you have been to India. I have yet to. Have been hearing stories about people getting ill when travelling to India.

    Did you read in the papers about tour operators offering tours to the slums of India (after the success of the Slumdog Millionarie movie)? Did you visit any?

  7. Most of other Chinese would have chosen Hong Kong I guess, special people made special choices and gain special experiences....

  10. 对啊。我在电视上看过印度的旅游节目~;)

    那么到底印度有多神秘呢?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  12. Never been to India, but I been to Bangladesh few times and the longest stay was 2 weeks. Felt the same as mentioned by you (soya bean among the cincau, seeing ppl happily do their "business" everywhere etc). Don't think I want to go back to Bangla, but at least there's an attraction in India aka Taj Mahal. But I really wanted to see how Danny does his MV there lo. :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. u like india, but Chris does not like... :P

    if got an opportunity, i will go india too :P

    ReplyDelete
  14. India is indeed wonderful, so many attractions and the diversity of people living there. The oonly that sucked was the severe bouts of diarrhoea.

  17. 每个国家都有自己的特色,有机会去体验一下都不错。

    ReplyDelete
  18. 真好,去受训也可以游玩一番。呵呵。

    ReplyDelete
  19. A colleague on a business trip to Bangalore who stayed at the Oberoi noted the great contrast of poor India outside the hotel and colonial opulence in the hotel. India is fascinating that way.

    ReplyDelete
  20. 去印度旅行唔錯o架。不過如果長期係果樹作工就可能難頂d。

    ReplyDelete
  21. War....you have been to India too? Honestly....I have never been to other countries before. What a shame! LOL :D And you have been to India.

    ReplyDelete
  22. War...you have to hire your personal driver? Sounds like pretty bad huh the condition over there. Just like the movie slumpdog? :p

    ReplyDelete
  23. wowwww... so nice can travel here and there :)
    i thought u should feel 'homey' there (hehee just pulling ur thamby leg) :p

    ReplyDelete
  24. I never been to India la...and it isn't 1 in my travel list :p My fren went last 2 years and he bought a marble mini taj-mahal for me, very nice :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. 嘩,最近興集體回憶啊?!哈哈...

    不過,我依然唔會揀去印度,原因系黑色空間嘅阿Chris應該都講曬囖!

    ReplyDelete
  26. 有人说印度很很先进,也有人说很落后,唔通个Gap好大?泰国,柬埔寨,西藏,印度这些地方我都很喜欢,嗯,因为他们有民族宗教feel

    ReplyDelete
  27. 小弟任职采购,常与世界各地的商家接触,最讨厌的就是印度供应商,他们永远是“讲就天下无敌,做就你死你贱”。跟你掏订单时什么条件都可以答应,最后讲一大堆kik ling古!呕血!呕电!呕白泡!

    ReplyDelete
  28. wow you are so lucky to have an overseas work travel there. Despite all those "oddities" India has such good landmarks and structures to see.

    happy monday

    ReplyDelete
  29. maybe if i was given opportunity to go to Germany for one of the projects I handled before, I will definitely grab the chance and not hesitate at all!

    ReplyDelete
  30. 哗!朋友,原来你去过印度!我一直很想去,却又怕。。。

    ReplyDelete
  31. 大佬,你果然心口有个"勇"字,印度你都敢去,我一谂到班阿差就反胃!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I would love to go India too! But cow dungs all over the place? Yikes!

    ReplyDelete
  33. somebody peeing/pooing?! On the streets?! Unhygienic? =x

    guess certain parts of India is a better place.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I always planned to backpacking to India... Is it nice place to travel alone??? Haha!!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. 初哩报到,黎好!
    想问你是如何将好多张晤同个相整行一张?
    是用photoshop或者其他软件?
    请赐教!

  36. 古克石屋:
    呵呵, 對!! 是印度神奇之遊的神遊.. :)

    Mei Teng:
    well i think if you take care of hygiene and eat carefully, that should be ok, i just got minor diarrhoe over there, none big deal actually.. hmmmm, i have not heard about those slums trip, but i wouldn't want to go to any though.. i just am interested to visit the famous spots like Taj Mahal.. :p

    tagnan:
    其實OK架, 都幾多嘢睇架, 你唔好畀阿Chris嚇親啦.. :D

    TZ:
    yes, India is always one destination i wanted to go.. and that opportunity just came knocking on my door, lucky me.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Sam Wong:
    我是這樣想, 沒有去過之前很想去.. 去了之後就是認為有些地方一次已經足夠了.. :)

    Chris Chia:
    嘩!! 你去了非洲那一個地方?? 如果給我的話, 應該是埃及和南非罷了囉.. 食物還好啊, 餐餐都吃餐廳和酒店的, 比較安全嘛.. 所以沒有覺得瘦了下來囉.. 呵呵.. :p

    凡人館長《志強 cHeeKeOng》:
    還好我去是因為上一個課程, 然後就是五天那麼長, 就此一次.. 我覺得是去一次就已經足夠了囉.. 有機會的話, 真的要去看看哦.. :)

  38. Grass:
    yeah, that was what i thought while choosing between the two.. i would have lots of chances to go HK and going to HK is actually easy.. but India is really a slight chance.. that was why i choosed to go India instead.. :)

    manglish:
    hmmm, it was couple of years back then that i got chances to travel around.. but i've become quite station back here in KL now.. anyway, i appreciate what i have had though.. those trips really added sparks to my life.. :)

    Danny:
    hmmm, i don't think you would want to go there lor.. besides doing the MV, which you think is gorgeous, i think there are many other things that you would be hindered from by your "standard" and "preference" lor.. hahahaha!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  39. summer:
    其實也沒有很神秘, 可能我是到那些大眾旅遊經典參觀, 匆匆來匆匆去的, 沒有像旅遊節目那樣探討他們的獨有文化吧.. 不過還是也個很好的體驗, 至少看到很多令我吃驚的東西, 呵呵~~ :D

    fufu:
    yeah, i always wanted to see Taj Mahal and that training opportunity really make my dream.. well, guess you gotta find a Maharajah there to be your sugar daddy already.. :p

    K|E|E|N|Y|E|E:
    hmmmm, i think at least New Delhi is better than Bangladesh.. so i guess those were great experience for you to be working in Bangla so many times?? hahaha.. yeah, imagine Danny wearing the coli and sari, with all the bling blings, dancing and chasing the dancers around bushes and trees~~ fantastic man!! hahahaha :D

    ReplyDelete
  40. Wois:
    because Chris has been there too many times already.. for me, i like to go before i have been.. after i've been there, i think once is enough.. hahaha!! i think you will have the same feeling too if you happened to go there in the future.. :)

    Gratitude:
    hmmm, actually i just covered a small little part of India.. just the golden triangle at northern india.. i really see lots of attractions and, like you said, the diversity of the Indians.. diarrhoea, should not be a problem if you take care of hygiene and eat carefully.. i didn't have that problem while i was there..

    Medie007:
    yes, it was magnificent!! i was like stuck to it and don't feel like leaving the place.. no wonder it's one of the wonders of the world :)

  41. 十六夜真人:
    我開始也是和你一樣, 想去但又不敢去.. 不過最後還是一個人硬著頭皮去.. 還不錯, 很好的一次體會和經驗.. :)

    古小玉:
    對, 其實我只去了北印度的一小個領域, 主要還是要看泰姬陵.. 真的可以感受到文化上的差異, 是一次很好的體驗..

    Chin Weng 茶先生:
    可以去到印度是很難得的一次機會, 所以受訓之後我特意請假延長逗留, 自己一個人去週圍看看.. 終於看過Taj Mahal了~~ :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. HappySurfer:
    i went to New Delhi instead, and i guess should not be any better than Bangalore.. i can see the contrast like what you've mentioned.. everyday i travelled to another place for training, which is newly developed resembling the silicon valley, from the place i stayed near the city center, where you find the central train station and all mess you could ever find in India..

    khengsiong:
    呵呵, 當然係暫時性啦, 旅行就梗係OK啦, 如果要長期住喺嗰度, 我梗係唔制啦.. 哈哈!! :D

    Tekkaus:
    are you sure you've not been to any other countries?? well, you should plan for it with your wife lor, travelling actually let you see more and experience more.. hmmm, just gotta hire a personal driver, for safety and to make sure that i will not get lost.. but most importantly i don't think i want to get into their trains.. you know why don't you?? hahah!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  43. the happy go lucky one:
    haha, couple of years ago, but now seldom have the chance to travel around lor.. hehe, i wasn't a Thamby back then, so never feel any homey woh.. hahahaha :D

    uLi.佑莉:
    actually India is not everyone's cup of tea i would say, you'd either love it or hate it.. for me, the Taj Mahal is something i would like to see as well as the Indian people's diversified culture.. :)

    海市蜃樓:
    間唔中回憶一下都唔錯嘛, 當年情, 此刻是添上新鮮啊.. 人各有志囉, 我其實就唔會排斥印度人嘅, 阿Chris講咁多我都係得啖笑啦.. 我其實就鐘意呢啲茄哩嘢架~~ :D

    ReplyDelete
  44. Rebecca Kheng:
    咩話?? 印度進步?? 邊一方面先?? 好似未聽過呢句說話喎.. 我就覺得好落後囉.. 係喇係喇, 其實我鐘意呢啲好有民族同賣宗教feel嘅地方架.. 我覺得去旅行, 越大文化差別越好囉, 咁先算係睇得多啲嘢囉..

    山城大熊:
    其實係一般印度人嘅天性囉, 永遠係講就天下無敵, 做就有心無力!! 我以前間公司咪請印度人囉, 同佢哋講解點樣點樣幾次, 每次都話冇問題, 係擰頭話yes no problem嗰隻啊.. 到最後以為做好, 點知原來係坐喺度咩都冇做!! 認真激死~~

    Ayie:
    yeah, that was couple of years back when i got plenty of opportunity to go overseas for work assignment.. well, i gotta agree with you, despite all those oddities, India is really a nice place to visit.. the landmarks and structures, the culture and incredibleness.. Taj Mahal is already a splendid thing to see there.. hmmm, good luck for your Germany opportunity!! it's a nice country also.. and i love german sausages~~ :p

  45. 雪芬 shirls:
    呵呵, 厲害哩?? 我當時還是單槍匹馬去呢!! 開始也是又想又怕, 不過後來既然機會來了, 就硬著頭皮去吧!! 還好我是蠻enjoy這一次的體驗的.. :)

    Chris:
    呵呵, 咩唔敢啊?? 我仲係好想去嗰隻添架!! 不過我唔理啲阿差啦, 我淨係知道我要四圍去睇我要睇嘅嘢, Taj Mahal就好值得去啦..

    foongpc:
    hmmm, just gotta beware when you walk lor.. hahaha!! but most of the time i'm inside the car, or else it's quite difficult to move, cos you'd be the target of many beggars and touters.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. ladyviral:
    yeah, no joke!! i really saw them doing it on the streets like nobody's business.. guess the people there are quite used to this already?? well, i went to the northern india territory, supposed better than the southern ones.. :)

    类私理 Lesly:
    wow, backpacking to india huh?? it's definitely a nice place to visit, and i think it's one of the backpacker's paradise too.. but while i was alone there, i just dare not take the challenge, i hired my own private car and driver, to get him escorting me anywhere i wanted to go.. or else you just gotta rely on their notorious train system - but again it might be an experience.. depend what you are looking for :)

    HR:
    你好.. 我係用一個叫做Photoscape嘅軟件, 唔駛錢架, 可以網上下載使用.. 個網址係www.photoscape.org.. 我覺得裡邊好多features都幾好用架.. :)

  48. 多谢黎既分享!

    忘记赞你既广东话既文章好犀利!我剩系打哩
    两行已经好辛苦啦,佩服!

  49. Ayie:
    hmmmm, so there's just no chance for a freelancer to go over to Germany for the project?? well, maybe you can talk to your boss, things might work out.. or maybe that could be a contract model?? :)

    HR:
    唔駛客氣, 有好嘢我唔介意同大家share嘅.. 哈哈, 你過獎喇, 打多就自然會比較順架啦, 冇話咩犀利唔犀利嘅, 熟能生巧吖嘛~~ :)

  50. freelance can go anywhere if you have project in that place coz ocular inspection and surveying is very important. Just like that El Nido trip I had.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Ayie:
    i see.. it's quite different from here.. most of the time freelancer won't have the chance to be assigned with overseas job.. companies will send permanent staffs to do that..

    ReplyDelete
  52. ah ok, it's not that kind of freelance also...i'm not a freelancer employed outside, I get my own contracts and do my own projects. =) that's why

    ReplyDelete
  53. Hey Thamby, of course you love India! It is your mother land! Muahahahaha!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Ayie:
    haha ok, whatever it is, most importantly you have something to do.. haha!!

    Twilight Zone:
    yeah of course i love india!! and if i could see Arumugam dancing running and singing in the park, that would be even more fascinating.. vanakam!! :p

    ReplyDelete
  55. Vanakam SK Thamby! Geeeeeee! I am looking at your India photos again and again wor... Now I am thinking of going to visit Jaipur by taking Air Asia to Chennai first. I heard Lifebook said the plane inside India bound, always filths. True or not?

    ReplyDelete
  56. See Arumugam dancing round the trees? You cleber to make me laugh always!

    ReplyDelete
  57. kenwooi:
    oh, you love to eat indian curry?? :p

    Twilight Zone:
    haha, Arumugam is thinking of going back to the motherland?? i didn't take their local flight, i flew straight to New Dehli, then hire my private driver to drive me to Agra and Jaipur.. but i think you can try taking their local flights, should be a good experience besides the train, hahaha!! you are only going to Jaipur?? not going to Agra?? i think it would be nicer if Arumugam is dancing around the trees in Taj Mahal, so romantic leh~~ :p
