Khmer traditional Dancing Show at CJCC
There is a show on Khmer traditional Dancing and a famous ancient story – Ko Samot Teuk Dors, which perform by all Khmer students who are studying their bachelor degrees in Japanese at Japanese Department at IFL, RUPP. This show is created in the meaning of building a better friendship and cooperation between Cambodia and Japan as well as to share each other’s cultures. There are many Japanese and Cambodian audiences went to see that show.
The performance was so nice which make my eyes fixed on the stage every second. They have been training just only 6 months, yet their performance go so smooth and cool! The story was being narrated in Japanese, so the Khmer audiences need to see the scripts on the slide. However, it was amazing that those students (performers) could speak Japanese so well even some of them just begin studying Japanese only for about half a year! Everything was well done, especially the Apasara Dance!
It is worth spending 2hours in Sunday afternoon watching the great show. I am hoping to join another one next time if there is other performance there at CJCC.

My life with dual bachelor degrees at universities
Since my classes have started, I haven’t got much free time to read my favorite books much as well as to take some times to update my blog with valued articles.
Well, talking about life at IFL first. I am (I dare say!?!?!) the friendliest student in class!!! ( ^ , ^ ) I’ve made many new friends easily with my high sense of humor and smiles! J I am also valued to be one of the most active and bravest students during sessions. I can do well in every subject except history. I always fail to remember the chronology (years) and anthroponym (difficult names of kings…), everything always gotten confusingL. I know myself I can’t do well with subject that need memorizing. In contrast, I find myself good at those which need understanding, real concepts and real activities. ;D Anyway, I still think that university life is much happier and joyful than high school life cuz I can express my ideas, knowledge and talents which in high school I had no chance to do so.
My other class is accounting & finance class at EFI. Well,… the lectures are very good. The lecturers are quite experienced cuz he works and teaches the same skill. This is called “Theories go along with real practice.” The school rules are perfect! I like that. The students need to tuck in and where the student identity card while in IFL cannot control this issue like here at all. The management system there is quite great, but the only problem is about the students. Can you guess? What’s wrong with them? They are not any bad, but I just find their knowledge is too small to be in university! I really wonder! They earn very very little knowledge from high school! I really cannot describe. At first, they surprised me amazingly! Just a simple point, they do not know and said that they’ve never heard of that even that point is already learnt since grade 8 in high school! Not many freshmen in my class are qualified with high school knowledge. This makes me worry a lot about the future of Cambodia.
Many people occupied in one Tuk-Tuk! So cramped!
4 People in one motocycle-taxi! ;0 They are on their way to the riverside to enjoy the boat racing! :D

Water festival is one of the national festival and holidays in Cambodia. It is celebrated in the mean to thanks to the Mekong River which provides water for the crop and to welcome new harvest season.
Today, 23rd November, is the first day of Water Festival. There are around 2000 competitors of 144 boats from all over Cambodia. From yesterday till this morning, there are thousands of people in the crowd in front of the Royal Palace along the river bank. More than 4 millions people from provinces also include the Phnom Penh residents are predicted to enjoy this festival. There are 10 different concerts places at the public parks from 10 TV stations to entertain the people so as to make the Water Festival this year the most joyful one.
A huge number of participants will be found in the evening as people like to go to see the fireworks. From my apartment balcony, I could see many people traveling east toward the river side. The sound of vehicles could be heard since dawn. However, the traffic will be closed around the area near the riverside from 3pm onward. During Water Festival every year, I don’t have any plan to go anywhere rather than enjoy seeing peoples and watching boat racing on TV. ( ^ , ^ )
On the second day of Water Festival, the moon is full. Everyone in my family stay up till mid night. We pray to the moon and grandma ORK OM BOK us. There is so much fun. J OM BOK ( kinda oat??!!?), banana and many more different fruits filled up my mouth, and then grandma asks me what I wish for this year. As my mouth is full up, it’s hard to talk. It was funny! Have you ever done this??? Must be “Yes”, right? Hehehe….
On the other hand, there is one important thing to consider. The municipal department is worried about the rubbish problem after the three-day-festival. Every year, like last year, after the festival, the grassy parks which normally full of fresh green grass and cleaned turned to dead and yellow and full of rubbish! Just as what I’ve posted in my blog last year, the high school students including me joint the social activities of protecting the environment clean by going to help the Cintry group (Public Rubbish Gathering Group) pick up all those rubbish. I am not sure how the process is going for this year yet at all as there are around 20 NGOs stalls at the parks cover different topics such as Smoking is harmful, educate about AIDS, etc… to share ( in a way of education) to those people.

From a high school girl to a university student…
After I have passed the high school leaving examination since August, now my life as a high school girl has changed to be a university student instead. Well, I got grade “C” with a total score of 99.469/100 which is nearly “B”. People who got 99.479 were graded “B”… Well, let me tell you my specific grade for all 10 subjects during my exam. I got 2 “D”s in Khmer Literatures and Math, 2 “A”s in Physics and Social Studies, 3 “B”s in Chemistry, Biology and history, and 2 “C”s in Earth Science and English subject.
You know, this year the graded score format is different from the previous year. Last year, they set that 99.5## up was “A”, from 99.5## down to 98.### was “B” and “C” was from 97.### down to 93 or 92, whereas this year there are only the top 2 students are graded with “A”. One top boy got more than 100 and another girl who is my friend, she also got “A” with the total average score is 99.999. From 99.998 down to 99.479 is “B”. See! It is such a short space of “B”. Me, is the top “C”, from 99.469 down to around maybe 92.###. There is still “D” which I am not sure if it is from some kind of 89 down to somewhere. I am not dare to give more unreliable information about the grade score cuz I don’t know for sure as well.
After finishing high school, it is normal now that the students are preparing for university. For me, I have passed the scholarship entrance exam at Institute of Foreign Languages (IFL), Royal University of Phnom Penh in Department of English. I’ll take Bachelor of Education in English there. The class will start on 16th October. I also applied to another faculty in Accounting and Finance at Economic and Finance Institute (EFI). I do dual bachelor degrees. Well, I have merely reached the exit of a first step tunnel and will fight through another dark tunnel of university life soon next month. ( ^ , ^ ) Guess what, I am expecting and imagining how I would posses my life as a university girl. Hehehe… Will it be a tough and enjoyable one??? J However, I commit to try my best to do well! I need to grab goodies to my life. I am trying my best in seeking and behaving for the 3 success of life, (Academic, Social, Family) success.
How about you? Any comment for the university life or not? What do you think whether it is worth trying best to get the best evaluation in university or in society?
