Aerobics… Cambodian style!!!!!!

With increasing number of population in the capital city of Cambodia and the improving standard of living, the citizens of Phnom Penh (the Penh) are developing a very healthy life style. Either it’s very early in the morning or late afternoon and evening the river side and the newly renovated parks are packed with people, old and young alike, streching their mucles, playing batminton, jogging, running and……. dancing!!!!! :)))….

The most intriguing part is that people seem to mix the disco fast dance moves for their aerobics with the Cambodian traditional popular dance music… Ranging from hip hop to disco and to Ram Vong (round dancing) and Lam leav.. there is a piece for everyone……. Well,.. keep your self healthy and learn some new dance moves.. not a bad idea at all….

The NagaWorld a new place to promenade?

There seems to be hundreds of local Cambodians and Asian tourists coming into the NagaWorld lobby from 6h00pm onward everyday. People just come to take a look, walk around, take picture, listen to the romantic violin music played on the first floor or just to see the NagaWorld by their own eyes. It’s kinda too crouded though. Look at the picture and see what I mean. Well, events coming up is the King Birthday Concert and Fashion Extravaganza on May 16. Free entrace, so bring your friends and family along!!!!!

Broad Cast from Kung Yu-META-HOUSE PHOM PENH

I was in the Meta House Last night to watch a staggering documentary film entitled : Broadcast from Kung Yu: Lost Land, Lost Culture. Filmed, role played, acted, directed, and shooted by the real Jarai indigenous community who have lost their land and most likely their livelyhood, culture and lives to the land grabbing scheme of a rich and powerful person in the Government. I was overwhelmed to see them in persons telling their stories of how they were tricked, threatened, deceived into selling thier land at a chicken-feet price. They will make their case today at CDC during the government-donner meeting.
META-HOUSE PHOM PENH: “Mon, 27th @7pm : BROADCAST FROM KUNG YU
In 2008 Kong Yu village in Rattanakiri shot, directed and edited the film ‘Land Lost, Culture Lost’ in Jarai language (27 min., with English/Khmer subtitles). Indigenous people tell the story of how they lost farm land to a rubber plantation. The village has had absolute control and ownership of this project, from determining the concept of how to tell the story to deciding who would learn to use a video camera to thinking about who they wanted to show the final video to. Project makers will present at screening/Q&A.”

Khmer New Year in Siem Reap

Happy New Year Everybody!!!!
Wonder where be have been to???? Yeah.. that’s right.. for those you know me.. they already know that I have nowhere to go except my lovely home town, Siem Reap.
It was so cool to meet friends and family again… the weather was unbearably hot though..

Here are something for you to enjoy:

A new game or ….. Sport?????? !!!! Well, whatever it is, it is surely colorful and joyful.

Here is the picture of the thing you have to hit with a small arrow.

The rule is simple, 1 arrow is KHR 1,000 and you have to stand only about 2 meters in distance and throw the arrow to break the balloon, there. 1 successful throw means you take one one high quality galsses or plate. The more you balloon you break the more things you can take home ranging from household utensils, decoratives, cookings oil, syrope, cooking pot, rice cooker… hmm… You want it???? u gotta break’em with your arrow throwing skill.

This is my wife, thinking if she should try it…


Wait.. she’s smiling…. that means she’s going to attempt to break all those freakin’ balloons…
let’s wait and see….

Ready ??? set… go……su su su… sa sa sa………..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And even my mum tries it. Yeah… that’s right.. she’s a real sportswoman. Just look at how powerful she throws the arrow. Look out.. you naugty balloons.. Grandma is here to catch ya’ll !!!

She did it.. Yeay…. Yo… She should win a Gold Medal for that … really!!!!!

And she got tired…. My mom in-law and auntie is law were standin’ thinkin’ what they wish to bring home tonight.
And she really got something. It’s a nice water bow with stand. This is perfect for welcome the Angel of New Year tonight.


After lots of throwing, laughing and screaming… we’ve got that bowl (not real silver though).. my auntie-in-law is discussing if we made a profit……………….. Ofcourse we didn’t… we spend almost USD 20.00 but we broke only 10 balloons!!!! I got freakin’ nuts!!!! we’ve gotta practice for next time…. kekeke……………………..

Very happy to break a balloon.

Back to my auntie’s salon, my wife told me about something to make my face look

bright and fresh. I never cared about my look but yeah… why not???? This thing is from Japan

she said…

Little did I know that she would turn me into a Moster!!!!… look at my face….!!! what is that black thing…!!!.It’d better be effective… or I’ll…kill myself…heee heee…. and FYI those are not my hands…. I don’t look too pleased, do I?

Yep… there are many things we did.. we went to the pagoda.. we played traditional games… dinner with friends… and lots of dancing….

Wish you all the best in the year of Holy Cow 2009….. or is it Holy Crap!!!???? .. I am not so sure…. Ciao…
