LIFE IS NOT JUST ABOUT FOOD


5 months!!! Yes, it has been five months since I last touch any tobacco. I smoked my last cigarette on 21 September 2010 and ended more than 20 years of life with 3 packs of cigarettes a day. Cant even stand the smell of cigarette now and cant imagine going back to that lifestyle. Sadly, those in the smoke free-bandwagon such as Kamsani Ahmad, Joe Liew and Azwan went back to cigarette but I trust my bil Azhar Sulaiman had completely divorced his cigarette.

Cigarette price in Phnom Pehn is as low as US$0.80 for a pack of 20s!! Yes everything here is priced in US dollar but that is how cheap it is to sell your health.... US$0.80 a day. The cost to 'buy' AIDs or HIV is only US$5.00 a night and there is no refund. AIDS & HIV is for life.

It is the same cost of having a haircut, manicure and pedicure in Phnom Pehn. After many attempt with failure to go to Peek-A-Boo at the Curve for a haircut with Senior Stylist Evian, I had no choice but to try out the senior stylist at the Phnom Pehn most famous saloon.

This place does not have any junior or lower than senior stylists. All hair-dresser are Seniors!!! As in old and only men. no lady hair stylist.

Me on far left, in the middle and Ly Rattana on far right.
 The saloon only have senior stylists... but the ladies did the manicure and pedicure.


With a five dollar look, I took the tut tut and left for the National Museum to learn abit of Cambodia History.


Tut tut cost US$2.00 and another US$3.00 for Museum entrance. This is my type of a break... To learn the history and culture of another country.







Sadly, there is not much write-up of the history of Khmer Empire. I wonder how once a huge empire that dominates part of Thailand, Laos and Vietnam can be destroyed and became almost a third world country today. The first Stadium too was constructed in Cambodia. I love history and this is my type of country to visit. There are so much to learn about Cambodia but there is so little time to spare.

After spending half a day at the Museum, I took the tut tut to the riverside for some discussion. Special thanks to the french tourist whom happily became my cameraman at the Museum. There were so many tourist at the Museum.

An hour later, Ly Rattana joined me at the River front restaurant.

Beside the hair cut, museum visit, morning run.. the other best part of life is FOOD..... and eat!! My department!

















We also went to this floating on 'paya' (Swamp) restaurant (cant remember the name) but we had to walk to the middle of the swamp to be served with seafood.


but the less syiiiok part was the..... err...
when nature's call...


The nature's call was really back to nature.....


The thingy goes straight to nature......

look at the man in white in the swamp.......

A closer look behind the 'nature' toilet...
was a man in the swamp catching fishes.. and I hope its not the same fish they cook for our lunch.


Somehow, I think its our lunch!! Uurgh...........
No wonder its so tasty..
