Lucky to be in the right place at the right time, with my trusty point-and-shoot digicam 🙂

Signs, signs: Chocolate Shop

Last week, I was planning to go to Daiso Japanese shop at Aeon Mall to buy bottles of calligraphy ink when my husband said he was going with me. I was surprised, of course, but pleasantly surprised. He seldom goes to the mall with me so this should be fun, I thought.

It was actually a quiet mall when we arrived. There were not many shoppers. After getting my ink and several more miscellaneous stuff, we bought sugar-free chocolates from this shop:

The Chocolate shop is owned by Belgian expats who have lived in Cambodia for more than a decade now. I actually enjoyed going to their shop at St. 240 where they also have sandwiches, pies and smoothies. Their chocolate selection are varied, and they recently introduced Cambodian flavours infused to their chocolates, one of which is, the most popular, their signature Kampot pepper chocolate.

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:

Mike's Burger House Camko City

Our go-to place for the best burger in town.

Arguably the best place for American-style fast-food burgers in Phnom Penh.

Vehicular accidents in Cambodia

A grim reminder to motorists in Cambodia.

This is a common roadside sign in Cambodia: a grim reminder about the hazards of driving. Road traffic accidents are a major issue in the Kingdom and death tolls are ever increasing annually.
