Saturday afternoons have become kite-flying time for us in the hood. When I say “us” it includes the neighbourhood kids who are in my husband’s English class and their siblings, apart from me, my husband and my younger brother.
Last week we started at 5.30pm. Surprisingly the sun was still up. The kids love this weekly activity because it not only engages them to speak English but they also get to fly kites (made by my husband) and chase them while flying low. It is a different kind of thrill for them, something these kids have not done as they are mostly occupied with computer and video games at home.
While they were busy running around, I noticed the beautiful sky. The sun’s golden rays were starting to fade as darkness started to creep in to make way for the darkness to envelop the sky.
We’re doing it again tomorrow. I hope it doesn’t rain like last week so I can take another beautiful sunset.

This big event happened several weeks ago – a gathering of 40 artists from Cambodia and other countries from all kinds of backgrounds – painting, photography, graffiti and sculpture.
This is a yearly initiative aimed at showcasing the talents and raising support for the young up and coming artists in Cambodia. These young artists are talented and full of unique ideas but could not start a project due to lack of funds.
I missed it this year but, hopefully, I’ll be able to catch it next year.Read More
These are just one of the old apartment buildings in central Phnom Penh. Most apartment buildings in the city are said to be built in the 1960s. Generally a “shop house-style” characterized by deep narrow apartments made up of a combined ground-floor business-front and upstairs residence, with similar layouts consisting of a living room, kitchen and bathroom at the back and one or two bedrooms in the middle.
As you can see these apartments have been re-painted, there are still more buildings that need a bit of sprucing up.Read More
Back from a long absence. We temporarily suspended our subscription with our ISP due to a very poor service. It took more than three weeks to settle the issue, that meant three weeks without Internet as well. So I missed a rather great deal of posts here, please excuse.
Now that I am back, I’m picking up from where I left off. I’m starting again with the Mellow Yellow Monday meme.
See you all again next week.Read More
