My husband and I were at the pharmacy near the FCC two days ago to replenish our multi-vitamins supply. He was busy looking at another brand and comparing the nutritional values while I wandered around from shelf to shelf reading funny or weird brand names of medicines and came to this shelf selling products that contain strange stuff such as propolis, sheep placenta, and so on… Do you have these in your local shops, too?
I have never heard of an “essence of kangaroo” before. The label says it is a natural food supplement. The wheels in my head started turning since I laid my eyes on this product so I was compelled to consult MisterGoogle about this product. To my utter surprise and amusement, I found out that there are other different brands of essence of kangaroo and most are, in fact, sex products. Hmmm… wondering how many people out there are desperate to use something like this? The main ingredient or component is cultivated from the male kangaroos testes. Oh, dear. Oh, dear. I just hope there are scientific studies that support their, errrm, health claims. *coughs*

A lot of tourists opt to skip Phnom Penh to head straight to Siem Reap. They’re missing out on a lot of things, I tell you. A LOT.
Phnom Penh is a vibrant city with a charm and unique character that is worth a visit. Here’s one of those reasons why you should visit the Chaktomuk Conference Hall and Theatre.
It was designed by Vann Molyvann and completed in 1961. It reinterprets traditional Khmer elements such as the pointed ‘tower’ and triangle roof forms which open out like a fan seen from above. The Chaktomuk Conference Hall and Theatre is a significant example of post-independence Khmer Architecture. It was originally opened to the public as La Salle de Conférence Chaktomuk. Thirty years or so later, in 1991, it was earmarked for “redevelopment” as a restaurant but was brought back in 1994 as a theatre after a fire gutted down the National Theatre. In 2000, Chaktomuk was refurbished into what it is now – a modern conference centre that provides international-standard facilities for conferences. On occasions, it is still used a venue for special and official programs by some government agencies.
This is a very interesting building, don’t you agree? It is one of my favourite buildings in Phnom Penh.
Architecture-wise, it is very pleasing to the eyes. The lines, shapes, textures, and colours make it so eye-catching. But wait till you see it’s awesome fan-shape from above. Here’s one that I found: Chaktomuk Conference Hall and Theatre via Googlemaps.
I love ice cream! When the summer heat gets too unbearable, there are ice cream shops around the city to beat the heat and just, well chill.
Chill Ice Cream and Coffee Lounge is one of them and they’re easily spotted along the riverside. They have a good selection of ice cream flavours, however, not much to rave about. The ice cream was just alright. They also offer ice cream cakes, coffee and pastries.Read More
Traffic jam. This is one reason why I don’t really look forward to running errands around the city. It irritates me a lot (when I’m on car that is close to a stand still) knowing that I’m losing time but stop short of complaining and whining lest the negativity spread to my husband and ruin both our day.
What comes to your mind whenever you get caught in a jam and your car is close to a standstill?
