Lighting boat of Ministry of Justice
The last one, which is the new one for this year, is ASEAN lighting boat! Cool! Is it great?
It was so windy that night, my lil cousin and me need to keep the candle lit!
There are 7 different kinds of fruits. This is a bunch of bananas! Yummy and vital for our health and brain!
This is OM BOK ( whether it is called oat???)
These are longan! It's so sweet and yummy!
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.
