$$$ Vs. Traffic

First of all, please do not read if you don't want to see another criticism from me :P

I am terrified of driving in PP.
I really do not see many people driving with mercy or another word driving with
understanding of others.
Why everyone, especially the rich and power people are super obsessive with going first???
Is it really worth of saving a few minutes of driving by ruining other people life or feeling?
I know that this is very common sense for everyone that they know why, but still there is not action to improve or people in Cambodia like to "Shut up and Drive" and being silent to all injustice? Neither Police nor civilian dare to care or take action?

One of the reason is "Rule of Law", the law above everyone doesn't have been practiced.

There should be first come first go, and respect of regarding of big and small road.
I am so mad once i drove across a street where there were busy traffic, suddenly a Lexis 570 drove in front of me where i believe i should have a right to go first. After that big car drove passed me, the mature lady starred in that car start stairing at me with her anger and big eyes, "this stupid girl doesn't want to live longer".

So What?
I know you're cool, but don't mess with me.
Its a Reflection of real Cambodia image but not the big cars in PP


0.o deeply + sadly

things happen very unexpected, why should everyone is so stress about what they are doing in routine life. If you don't like what you are doing right now, you should find out and change. Life is too short for people who are always complaining and keep thinking of negative thought.

I am deeply sad of Steve Jobs' the death, and another colleague transffred to another department.
Jon said "Your foolist and failure experience will lead you to what you wish for. And ALWAYS STAY FOOLIST AND HUNGRY."
At the same time I will be all my own.

Good luck Rath


Life could be bought so easily in Cambodia

"Young mother executed"
Phnom Penh Post, Oct 4, 2011

First of all, I really don't like the title because my first impression I thought she committed something wrong or maybe she killed her baby, but she was gunned shot!

There are number of cases that people have been murdered, and justice never been found. Just another case here, the police suspected that her husband in New Zealand actually is a married guy, and his real wife found out about her husband got affair, so she ordered to kill the young mother without mercy. This is too cruel that not all women could do it even they have face same problem in their family.

There is a witness gave her full name to PPP, and printed with her full name. I doubt it if this could lead another terrify case, or her safety. In addition, I am not so sure if Cambodia law has any provisions on "witness protection".

Last but not least, the last sentence of this article, the police did not give a strong comment on this how to do next in order to find the gunman and throw him into jail.

One can see here the deepest sadness in Munch's life.
The pale faces, black suites and the room lightened
by candle lights. However, they face the truth as
the woman in the back is looking at you: death will
come for everyone sooner or later.

PS: i hope the gunman doesn't know english!!!
