We celebrated my husband’s birthday in Kep last month. It was a simple celebration with family enjoying a sumptuous seafood dinner and champagne for the toast. All these merriment and with the stunning sunset as our witness made my husband’s birthday a very a memorable milestone for the family.Read More
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

Now, if you’re still looking for Chuck Norris there’s no need to go through lengths of searching on the Internet.
Wow, Chuck Norris in Phnom Penh? Chopping meats and veggies and what-have-yous for dimsum dishes instead of karate chops and roundhouse kicks.
I’ve never been there yet so I cannot confirm his presence nor the food offerings at Chuck Norris Dimsum House, lol. What I did see while passing by was a black and white wall painting of good, ole Chuck in full battle gear inside the dimsum house. Now I don’t want that machine gun pointed at me if I eat there, do you? Unsettling, lol.
I’m so tempted to share with you a Chuck Norris joke (there are lots on the Internet!) I heard from an American colleague so here it is:
There used to be a street named after Chuck Norris, but it was changed because nobody crosses Chuck Norris and lives.
Lol. I hope you’ll have a nice weekend.
By the way, I just finished my project 365! Woohoo! It took a whole lot longer because I didn’t post on Saturdays and Sundays (my rest days) and there are weeks where I don’t post every day. Nevertheless I am very happy to have finished one cycle. Today is the beginning of the next. Instead of APAD 366, this will be APAD 001 Cycle 2 🙂Read More
It is still hot and dry in Phnom Penh despite the fact that we are supposed to be already in the rainy/wet season. The heat is sweltering and one time two weeks ago I stayed outdoors flying kites for a few hours and got myself a nasty sunburn. I’m still waiting for my sunburn to heal
Anyways, speaking of summers… summers in Cambodia meant the blossoming of the of these flower trees around the city, called phka loeung or royal yellow flower. Aren’t they pretty?
I believe the summer season in the Penh is not complete without these pretty yellow blossoms! So you see, even these flower trees are confused about the weather.Read More
