Khmers are never shy about using bold colors. Specially the ladies. Aside from the ubiquitous and colorful pajamas they like wearing in and out of the house, another favorite for the older ladies are comfy house dresses. Here’s a snapshot of these colorful cotton house dresses being sold in the markets.. Another Cambodia snapshots entry […]
I’ve taken to calling this photo, Cambodia’s Dawson’s Creek. Heh. This was taken in Kirirom Falls last year. The scenery just reminded me so much of those little brooks in the province in the Philippines I used to play in when I was a kid.

Things, places, scenes, feelings are better conveyed with photos. This is the main reason I’m starting this category. Cambodia is a place that defies […]
Recently, Ouwie and I have been doing walking exercises often walking several kilometers every two days. A few days ago we walked from our house in Boeung Tompoeun to St. 271 and stopped at Monivong Bridge near Phsar Chhar Ampoeu. From the bridge, I was gazing down the quietly flowing waters of Tonle Bassac river, […]
