To be honest, I kinda like this weather. I call it the lazy weather – it’s wet outside and cold (but not as cold as experienced in the West)- and a very good excuse to stay in bed, with a book to read on one hand and warm chocolate beverage on the other to give me warmth. This is the very reason why, when I was younger, my dad coined me another nickname, the snake, lol.

Signs, signs: Inclusivity

"Make every person count."

Epic Arts in Cambodia works to change people’s attitude towards disability and encourage the belief that every person counts.

A month ago, my husband and I visited Kampot. During this time, we had breakfast at our favourite cafe. Since it was early and there were not many customers yet, I had a chance to go up and check out the second floor (first floor, for the locals) and was really amazed at the things I found there. Above is one of the signs that decorate the interiors of Epic Arts Cafe in Kampot.

This is the second floor of Epic Arts Cafe. I've been there many times but this was the first time I've checked it out and took photos because it's always full of customers prior to this visit.

Epic Arts Cafe is a project of Epic Arts with the aim of providing opportunities for people with disabilities to work as well as a place to hang-out.  The cafe also houses a little shop showcasing the many artworks of the many young disabled people in their Arts Centre. It is one of the popular spots especially for foreign visitors in Kampot and it stands proudly as a model for an inclusive working environment in the community.

Red Dog is a lap dog

From my point-of-view… Red got comfy and didn’t want me to leave.
