Morning has broken and I’m already craving for a good cup of coffee in this small fishing village. It’s always good to visit local hang out’s to really get an experience on how life is like on this part of the world.

On the way out heading out for breakfast, we came upon this small temple that is devoted to the worshipped of deities of the underworld. Build on stilts, it wasn’t open when we arrived. From knowledge obtain during my travels, temple that is devoted to the deities of underworld would usually only open their door after dusk. Well, we were lucky. Just as we were about to leave, a lady showed up to unlock the premise for us.
