Last year, after a rigorous week-long field work, we were treated to a sumptuous meal in this restaurant. The name escapes me now but it is really worth going back there.

I love this quaint restaurant showcasing Khmer architecture. It is located outside of Banlung town tucked in the verdant hills of Ratanakiri province. The food is fantastic as well serving Khmer traditional dishes.

APAD 256: Spice store

My husband loves curry to bits and so, taking a cue from him, I had this brilliant (ahem, ahem) thought of making a curry kit of sorts so I don’t have to scurry whenever my husband or I crave for Indian food.

Luckily for me, there are Indian spices available in the city. One of them is this shop in central Phnom Penh where I can get a whole lot of spices and other Indian/South Asian provisions.

This is where I get spices and other stuff for my “curry kit”.

APAD 255: Yellow speedboat

While I was out in our terrace playing with my dogs when I saw a pick-up pulled over in front of a restaurant, just across my place. Tied to it was a yellow speedboat.

Preparation (for the rainy season) is the key.

Someone is making preparations for the monsoon season in the Kingdom, hah!

Red, the newest family member. He is a mixed terrier and was only a month old when this photo was taken in the previous month.

APAD 253: Dreaming

There is a mushrooming urban art movement in Phnom Penh with local and foreign artists creating masterpieces in many locations in the city. So far, I’ve seen several along the areas of Boeung Kak Lake, Russian Boulevard and the backstreets of Mao Tse Tung.

This is one of them – a mural. I rarely see this piece of art because it is hidden from the view most of the times with big trucks parked in front plus the potted plants. So when I finally had a good view, on a rainy day at that, I just had to take a photo of it whilst inside a moving vehicle.

Ta-da.

A fantastic find in one of Phnom Penh's backstreets.

I just wanted to believe that it depicts a boy, with a red krama on his neck, fast asleep and dreaming. A fantastic find in one of Phnom Penh’s backstreets.

What do you think? I think it’s awesome. A little sleuthing in the internet told me this was created by an artist known only as Seth.
We definitely need a lot of colours to brighten up the many old, dilapidated buildings in the city.
