Living in Phnom Penh: Saturday Downtime

Yahoo! Saturday. I was actually almost giddy last night coz I don’t have to get up early to fix breakfast. No classes so I could at least stay in bed till 7. But alas! Hi-ace and the kiddo have different plans. Both woke up so early. And when somebody is up, I can’t really just sleep. And besides the kiddo finds it fun to tickle me till I’ve no choice but to get up.

So what to do? Saturdays are my downtime. I don’t do anything, its my time to be lazy or to do whatever I fancied. So we just drove over to RUPP coz the kiddo wants to feed the fishes there. There’s a couple of small ponds in the university {IFL} with lots of tilapia fishes and she has taken a fancy to those fishes and always goes there to feed them. Then we had breakfast in the cafeteria there. Ssshh, this is one secret indulgence..breakfast in small Khmer eateries. I had…

Iced coffee – I dunno why Khmers like ice coffee for breakfast or anytime of the day, but I’m not complaining. I love coffee here.It’s soooooo good, a must try.

And beef kho kohr with yellow noodle – I lurve this noodle!!! And I like it really spicy so I dump a lot of chili on it! It was hot and so flavorful !

After that burplicious and super cheap breakfast, we just drove around, dropped by a thrift shop then went to market to buy some ingredients for something I want to cook. When we got home I got busy making biko, a Filipino traditional delicacy made with sticky rice, coconut milk, palm sugar.
