Just a random photo I took while visiting a local wat (Buddhist temple) in one of our weekend rides outside Phnom Penh.

Hello, friends! I’m back online.
Finding a reliable ISP here in Phnom Penh is like a needle in a haystack. That explains the blogging absence, sorry. Oh, and the holidays that came one after another. Two weeks more and another one week holiday, the Water Festival, will be celebrated in the Kingdom.
Anyhoo, my yellow photos were taken the day before Halloween. The kids in my husband’s class were keen on making something spooky but since Halloween is not celebrated in Cambodia, my husband decided to do a make-a-dragon project instead since the class was reading the story of “How to Train Your Dragon”, anyway. And how the kids jumped gleefully at the idea. Here’s some photos that I took:

But anyways, I think they are great house plants and gives you a bright and cheery mood.Read More
This is intended for my dogs’ blog but – I can’t wait! Hah.
My cheeky dogs are at it again. Red wanted a taste of beer but he’s just a puppy.
Dad Joe to the rescue!
