A Family Photo Crasher


Perhaps we know about the movie, A Wedding Crasher, a 2005 Hollywood romantic comedy film starring Christopher Walken, Jane Seymour, Owen Wilson, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams, Isla Fisher and Bradley Cooper. Written by Steve Faber and Bob Fisher, the movie follows two divorce mediators (Wilson and Vaughn) who crash weddings in an attempt to meet and seduce women. Eventhough a wedding crasher actually means the act of attending a wedding celebration without an invitation, particularly when the person or persons who turn up have a profound impact.

But it’s not about the movie, nor a wedding crasher in actual meaning. It’s different, but similar 😀


It was December, the perfect month to visit Cambodia. (well, it’s recommended for the tourists to visit Cambodia between November and April). During this time, the weather will be nice, not too hot, sometimes windy and surely it has very little rain. Most of the time the tourists will see clear blue skies making it a great time to explore the temples or to enjoy a relaxing getaway on the white sand beaches.

Knowing that December offers nice weather in Cambodia, we decided to spend the holiday season in Cambodia. The first stop was Siem Reap and of course, the Angkor Archaeological Park. Perhaps, it’s a little bit selfish to bring my family to the Angkor, since visiting Hindu – Buddha temples are my own favorite interest. But I knew that my children would be happy exploring some Angkor temples which are so beautiful and majestic.

As normally like others, we took a lot of photos in Angkor. We wanted to have a lot of memories of our holiday in Cambodia. Especially to the children that exploring world class heritage sites in a well managed environment. Of course, a lot of photos in Angkor Wat, The Royal Palace of Angkor Thom, Baphuon, Bayon and Ta Prohm.

Then after some time exploring in Ta Prohm, we were on the way to go out of the temple which are known as the temple of Angelina Jolie’s Lara Croft – The Tomb Raider. We wanted to have a photo on the wooden bridge over a green muddy water. We took a pose and waited for a while so some people could be away from the frame.

Suddenly less than a second before the shutter clicking, a foreigner came in and stood next to my husband and gave smiles, shared the happiness

Still amazed with the situation, all of us were laughing together watching he walked away and gave a waving 😀

No need to know the name or who he is actually, his sudden “crash” with smiles into our family photo colored our day. An Unforgettable moment.

Suddenly he came into the frame…

This post was written in response to the weekly challenge from Celina’s Blog, Srei’s Notes, Cerita Riyanti, and also A Rhyme In My Heart, which is the 49th week of 2020 has the theme of  Memory of December, so we are encouraged ourselves to write articles weekly.
