Voice of Cambodian Youths

This week, I have invited another Cambodian youth to write a post for me but this time, it’s a bit different. He is not a full-time student. He is studying at a university but at the same time, he is working. But he said both are his full-time commitments. Hm… I still don’t quite understand. … Continue reading Voice of Cambodian Youths

Hong Kong, Again

Apart from the Danish guy I met last week who is still stuck in Hong Kong because of coronavirus, I am also stuck in Hong Kong but I am fine with it, for now. For now. I caught up with some friends whom I hadn't seen for six or seven years and had a drink.  … Continue reading Hong Kong, Again

When I first arrived in Cambodia, I was given some textbooks and websites from the priests and volunteers but none of the materials have … Continue reading Learn Khmer

Independence Day

Today (9 November) is the Independence Day of Cambodia. Every weekend, I have to come to Phnom Penh because there is no one in the campus (most of the staff either live in Phnom Penh or in the town near the college so they all go back home during the weekend).  Accommodation for me? Usually, … Continue reading Independence Day

A New Chapter

So, following on from my previous blog, I have started my new assignment in a college. This college wouldn't … Continue reading A New Chapter
