It is considered polite and respectful to the host to take your shoes off when entering somebody’s house in Cambodia. This etiquette also extends to some local establishments. The sign above was from the Epic Arts Cafe in Kampot province. Epic Arts Cafe is run by differently-abled persons through the support of Epic Arts UK/Cambodia.
My husband and I always visit Epic Arts Cafe whenever we visit Kampot. They serve plenty delicious sandwiches, cakes and local fares and also the beverages. Great place to go and proceeds go to a great cause — supporting programs geared for those with physical and learning disabilities.Read More
I’m still on holiday mode. We are still enjoying the chilly weather in the Penh. Down under, the 2015 Australian Open is underway. Which means, I’m glued to my seat watching my favourite tennis players battle it out in grueling tennis action. Since I am mostly watching via live streaming online, I needed new headphones! I asked my husband to drive me to any electronics store in town and found this nice K240 model, a studio headphone, sort of. Just plug it in and you get a really nice sound.
Pardon the blabber. Here’s my Signs entry for this week:
Arguably the best place for American-style fast-food burgers in Phnom Penh.Read More
Hello and Happy New Year.
It took me awhile to go back to blogging. I wanted a looooong holiday before beginning another year of photos. I spent a long time re-organising my craft room-cum-home office. I re-arranged the furniture and brought in the secondhand table with drawers (it’s massive) and cabinet organizers where my stuff will finally be organised and kept. My vintage sewing machine is still here, hopefully, it won’t be gathering dust this year as I plan on cranking in some simple sewing work. I also have calligraphy tools which were sent (presents) from my baby sister. It is my goal that I’d be good at calligraphy and, perhaps, get commissioned to do some calligraphy works this year 🙂
After huffing and puffing from all the lifting furniture and dusting and re-organising, my husband treated me to a burger meal. Where else but, of course, at our favourite burger joint in town.
This is Mike’s Burger House in Camko City. This is the second branch and still the best place to find American-style fast-food burgers in Phnom Penh.Read More
