At the Eastern Transit

For getting this close to signing a deal to transport refugees to Cambodia. It is despicable enough that you cannot even allow them into the country, but then to throw them into Cambodia that is over 90% Buddhist and speak a language that is not native to the resettlement country.

Fuck you very much! This cannot go ahead!

As sleep time overcomes us, it is the music of our childhood that tends to be the final sound we hear before we start dreaming. There was nothing quite like hearing my mother sing the Cambodian songs of the 50’s and 60’s that translated well into lullabies. They remind many of us Cambodians the musicality in our culture, and is a common thread that keeps us united. What songs remind you of your childhood? #cambodia #music #sinnsisamouth #panron #rossereysothea #plengkhmai #khmer

"Isn’t Cambodian a democracy?"

- Misinformed tourists

Apr 2

I have travelled to many parts of Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand. Altogether I have visited almost 30 towns or cities in each country, everytime there is something new to be discovered, often I am alone when I visit. I see little things that spellbound me, the cultural aspect which I am fascinated by. Sure the idea of cliff jumping, white water rafting and desert surfing excite me but for me traveling is about communicating in languages you may not understand fully.

It is very possible to have a heart-to-heart despite a language barrier. Body movements, pointing at objects and simple assumptions go a long to create long lasting conversation.

South East Asia is home for me. I feel my spiritual self is rested, at ease. I feel healthy. The drive to show others my love of these countries while learning more about these very nations is a daily emotion. I hope our countries can stop fighting and build up to shine brighter. I have a dream for all of us. I want to show people my world by traveling through there, for these is still far more to explore.

I wonder how I will affect these places? Or rather how will they affect me? Maybe I will be a travel host, a researcher, a social worker, an entertainer? For me, it does not matter too much as long as I am encouraging the plight of these countries. It is about being there. That is where I feel my life begins.

No I am not kidding you, the crowds of the bars ‘Angkor What?’ and Temple Club have spilled out onto the street pumping out random bangers songs to a drunken crowd full of both tourists and locals. When drinks are less than $4 each, who wouldn’t? #cambodia #siemreap
