Exactly three weeks ago today, my husband and I were on a riding holiday with our trusty Hagrid (Honda CB400). Kep (with a side-trip to nearby Kampot) was the second leg of the trip, the first being Siem Reap. We were joined by my father-in-law and my stepson who were visiting Cambodia. Fun times we had!

Ho Chi Minh City is a delightful place to go to. There is so much happening in every direction that you’ll surely miss a thing when you blink. The sea of motorists – and the sound of the horns – is just overwhelming.

However, robbery/snatching is a major dampener to a tourists visiting there! So please, please, be very careful when going there. Leave your valuables at the hotel. Don’t trot around with your fancy phones and camera. Take it from me. It happened to me ten years ago when I first went there. It happened again to my friend on our visit last month. Apparently, some things never change ­čÖü

"Make every person count."

Epic Arts in Cambodia works to change people’s attitude towards disability and encourage the belief that every person counts.

A month ago, my husband and I visited Kampot. During this time, we had breakfast at our favourite cafe. Since it was early and there were not many customers yet, I had a chance to go up and check out the second floor (first floor, for the locals) and was really amazed at the things I found there. Above is one of the signs that decorate the interiors of Epic Arts Cafe in Kampot.

This is the second floor of Epic Arts Cafe. I've been there many times but this was the first time I've checked it out and took photos because it's always full of customers prior to this visit.

Epic Arts Cafe is a project of Epic Arts with the aim of providing opportunities for people with disabilities to work as well as a place to hang-out.  The cafe also houses a little shop showcasing the many artworks of the many young disabled people in their Arts Centre. It is one of the popular spots especially for foreign visitors in Kampot and it stands proudly as a model for an inclusive working environment in the community.
