just don't!

does a smile is very important?
but what if its not the real one? why should people have to force themselves to smile? 
Then it becomes useless.
I know now why some kind of people doesn't smile a lot, because they mean it. But some people from out look are very happy and chilling acting like they are enjoying life. Instead, they are suffering no ending!

if you can't smile, don't!
if you can't laugh, just don't! 
if you don't want to thing you don't like, just don't!
if you don't want to say yes, just don't!

Life is too short!

Reason for Exemption:TOEFL or IELTS test are well-known English language tests for students who are not native speakers of English and want to make sure if their English is usable in different English-speaking environments. However, I believe throughout the past several years in university where I obtained the Law degree taught in English, my working experiences with the Khmer Rough Tribunal and participation in intentional competitions, I should be competent enough to wave TOEFL or IETLS.

Usually each student at the Royal University of Phnom Penh is required to complete 6 semesters of the English Language courses. In total, I spent the last four years reading most documents and materials in English. In 2008, I successfully graduated from a Bachelor of Law degree in the English Language Based Bachelor of Law (ELBBL).
As for my work experience, I had been at the Khmer Rough Court for five months as legal intern. My main duty was to translate the national law and documents for both the national and international (UN) sides at the court.

Besides, I had done three international competitions, which were all conducted in the English language. First was International Client Counseling in India in 2008. Secondly, I represented Cambodia to join the biggest competition called Jessup Competition in Washington D.C., the USA in 2009. I was later awarded to join the Specialization Course in International Criminal Law for Young Penalists in Italy in 2009 as well.

All in all, I believe that TOEFL is not necessary for those who are already proficient in the language and have had a wide range of experience participating in an English-speaking environment or competition. In case I am still required to take the TOEFL or IELTS, I would be glad to do so.

REASONS FOR INTEREST IN THIS COURSE (Use additional sheet if necessary)There was a horrible civil war during in 1975 to 1979 in Cambodia which killed about two millions; and left behind only 1.7 million people who survived from the nightmare which makes them live in the dark shadow. The legacy of Khmer Rough History has played a big role in pushing me forward to get involved in International laws. To pursue a master of Laws in Human Rights at the Hong Kong University would make my dream come true. I would like to become an international criminal lawyer to help find justice for millions of victims of the Khmer Rough regime and to prevent any kind of future war.

When I was young, my mother told me a lot about the Khmer Rough Regime, how difficult the life she had gone through. Since then I have become more curious on how the civil war was formed; and why Khmer killed Khmer. In order to answer the questions by myself, I decided to study law and psychology. With the questions in mind, I have found out that in the area of Law, courses in Human Rights Law would be the best tool for me to pursue the answers.

Telling people I want to find peace for all victims of the Regime does not prove solid enough, but working at the Khmer Rough Tribunal should be. Even though it seems my law background does not match with the requirement it takes to get a Master’s Degree of law in Human Rights Courses, I am very positive about setting it on my mind to do my best for the Human Rights Courses in the future thanks to my personal interest and experience mentioned above.

Back in high school, when I shared with many people including every single member of my family, my dream to bring peace to Cambodia and as well as the whole world, they all started to laugh, and finally told me I was crazy. At that time I doubted myself whether I were crazy as they said. However, I did not stop dreaming so I studied law and psychology, which proved relevant. My purpose to get the psychology major was to understand how a normal person like Salot Sar aka Pol Pot who was the leader of the Khmer Rough Regime, led countries to Year zero stage, and had almost 2 millions of innocent people slaughtered. Moreover, I believe that studying law would answer to me why the United Nations did not show up and help us while others countries almost forgot us. I want to know how the international organizations like the United Nations deal with any kind of war, or whether they will leave others behind like what happened to us Cambodians. To my personal opinion, Cambodia where a terrible civil war occurred needs a stronger legal system to push the country forward while answering the questions of the past is a must.

To recap what is said above, the pursuit of the Human Rights Course is another big step further as I have planed to reach my dream to bring peace the whole world, and to make Cambodia a better place to live.

$5 Challenge accepted - successful woo....

I have wanted to blog sth like this for long time ago, but I didn't have enough courage, and no one takes my photos for me. Until I found a blog about a Japanese secondhand shop. Her writing is perfect and persuade me to do so.

Last weekend I hanged around at Toto Secondhand shop just because I wanted to challenge myself to find a less than $5 piece but must be fashionable! and I guess, I did it.

For me being fashion or dressing up doesn't depend how much the clothes are, but it is how you wear them to represent yourself among people around you.

Life is too short to wear the same old boring clothes ^^

Cute Dress - $2.5 at Toto Secondhand shop

H&M $5 and Old Navy $5

Old Jean (stole it from my sis) the necklace is $5 at Pink Shop ( near Toultompoung market).

Thirst is $0.75 Toto Secondhand shop

Skirt is $0.75 Toto Secondhand shop

Blue skirt is $1 Toto Secondhand shop

H&M $5

New Year Eve in Bangkok for US$67

If you are a budget traveler like me, why not just celebrate New Year Eve in Bangkok for a few nights.
I just found a one way flight by Air Asia promotion for only US$67. Here is a schedule you might consider:

1. Take Air Asia on 31 Dec 2012, Depart at 17:10PM Arrive at 18:20PM. 
2. Must book before 2 Dec 2012 at 00:00.
3. You might have to book hotels in advance if you don't want to spend your lovely eve on the street for the whole night with your heavy backpack.

The reason I only recommend to book one way ticket:
1. Because its on sale on the way to Bangkok but not coming back to PP.
2. Why not save up the money to shop. Almost every shop has a special discount so you might be crazy shopping and end up with a a few huge luggage, so it would be easier to travel by bus because you don't need to pay extra for it.
3. So why not just take one way flight and come back by bus. 


Just example of a crazy shopper! lol

First Day: 27-11-12


7.30AM: we took the Sorya Bus to Kep. The road is pretty bad, so it took forever to reach the destination (7.30-12.30PM). Once we arrived there, we were wondering where to eat because I didn't want to eat on the beach side where you have to spend extra money just to have seaside view. So we had lunch at Brise de Kep Restaurant, where you just walked straight about 50 meters on your right side of the bus station. The price was reasonable, and the food was so good.

***Advice: you can pay a bit higher like $8, riding a mini van which only takes 2h from Phnom Penh to Kampot by Kampot Express.


Fried shrimp with green pepper - about $4.5

At 1.30PM we walked from the restaurant to the Rabbit Island port for about 30mn. 
We should have taken a tuk tuk.

***Advice: be aware that one returning boat cost only $20 for 6-8 people. Do not buy boat ticket at the mini mart on the right side. Otherwise they will charge extra. We ended up paying $5 per person.

 The view along the way to the island.
It was so hot... but really enjoy
The beach.

There are so many dogs on the island, and I couldn't ignore their cuteness.
His name is អាកាធាត់

His name is Pity - អាកំសត់

His name is Chubby - អាកាម៉ាប់

Her name is Rath ហៅអាស៊ីច្រើន



We thought we didn't need to book a bungalow but it turned out disaster because everything was full!!!

***Advice: For backpacker from abroad, better avoid coming during national holiday. And please book bungalows in advance. The price start from $5 without WC inside the bungalow to $10 with WC inside the bungalow.

 Second Day: 28-11-12

From Kep to Kompot is 25km. 
You can take bus or tuk tuk. By Tuk Tuk they charge you around $10 to Kampot town or $15 if you want them to drop you at a remote resort like Villa Vedici or Les Manguiers. So we asked tuk tuk to drop us at Rikitikitavi hotel and restaurant before going to the resort. 

We stayed at Villa Vedici over night, a room costs $40. It's pricey because the room is not that fancy and it's without breakfast. However, they have a very stunning river view from the backyard of the resort. They have bicycle for sightseeing around for free, table tennis and more. I jumped into the mysterious water once, but it would be much more fun if there were a lot of people to swim with. 

In the evening, we went to town by tuk tuk and paid $7 for two ways. So we decided to go to a restaurant called Rusty Keyhole, it's along the way of the river, most tuk tuk know the place. It's ranking number 4 on Tripadvisor, but to me it's number one.

***Advice: you must go to Rusty Keyhole and don't forget to order Ribs Pork Grilled. Taste like heaven, I promise to all meat lover. 

After early dinner at 8pm, it was time for a private movie screening.We went to Ecran Movie House, and they charged us $3 per person. It wasn't a good choice for us because we all fell asleep after the movie. 



The picture en route to mainland, then Kompot.

Rikitikitavi restaurant, was so good but a bit pricey. $7.7 for this grilled kebab.

$4.7 for veggies red curry. 








At Rusty Keyhole, I love everything in kampot

 Rusty Keyhole, $5.5

 Rusty Keyhole, 22000Riel = $5.5 for half pork ribs grilled



Breakfast is $3, it was okay.

Cycling around the resort.

Learning the sign

First lunch at Epic Art. (it's nice but the food style is very European for us Asian)

Second day again at Rusty Keyhole
