Miss from Bangkok

Since his last call, I got no sign of him at all. I know he's in Bangkok. I know he's with friends. I know he's enjoying. But I do not know if he actually is missing me. Without the reassurance I am worried. I was waiting. I was hoping he would sms me and let me know he still have me in his thought. I was sad cos I am one who do not know what he is doing at this time, this moment, this minutes, and this second. I thought of sending him mail to let him know how much I miss him. I sign in into our love mail account. There he is! His mail is in my inbox with a title "Miss u from Bangkok". He told me how he spends the day, how much he needs me to be there with him, and how much he misses me. I am happy again with this lovely and caring mail. I know he's out there on a trip, not suppose to check mail. But he did. He did this for me cos he doesn’t want me to worry. How thoughtful? Awww… honey, it means a lot to me. Thanks for having done so. Love...

Another piece about ME

If U were born on the 6th,15th,24th of any month then U r number 6...
Number 6
Ooopppss..you are born to enjoy.. You don't care about others. I mean you are always want to enjoy your life time, you are a person.. You will be very good in either education or work wise or business management! You are talented, kind (but with only people who you think are nice), very beautiful girls and guys, popular and more than lucky with anything in your lives. All the goodness does come with you. Your mind and body is just made perfect for love. You are lovable by any other numbers.

If you are girl, most of you will get marry/engaged early. You are ! a caring person towards your family & friends . If you miss the half-way mark then you are about to suffer physically and mentally. Generally you will lead a very good inner-home happiness with nothing short of. You are a person of compassion, comfort & fairness, domestic responsibility, good judgment, and after all you can heal this world wounds to make peace for every life coz you have the great power of caring talent to make this world of love one step further...

I got it from Here, Hyena

I got a call

After a very tired day I had at Siem Reap, I slept soundly on my bed. Yet suddenly, there was a call. I usually don't pick up morning call from stranger (But hey! I pick up every call from my friend but sometimes, I just happen to tune off which I may not hear and unable to pick it up) but this aint no stranger cos it was him calling me from Laos. How sweet! He called to tell me that he miss me and yeah, to let me know where he headed for.
My phone got problem or the network is not good that I could not send him any sms on the day before my mum's birthday. He was wondering why I don't reply his sms. I am sorry honey, I also have no idea why it was so though I tried to use both 016 and 012. It's just not working.
Anyway, we've talked for 5mns and it was cut off :( I did not know the reason. But later I got his sms. Hum... I guess it was the network then. He was needed to go already so yeah, that was how it end. I could reply him today though. How great? But he's gonna be in Thailand soon which this number would no longer be useful for me to contact him. Oh... tell you what, he bought that number so he can get in touch with me. Sweet sweet! If it weren't for me, he would just have enjoyed his day with his friend lolz... Thanks honey! Hope you have a nice day there!

Mum's BIG 5 Birthday Party in Siem Reap

Things weren't like what we planned cos we left Phnom Penh at around 8 as we need to have a proper breakfast for the driver, or else he would drive us badly lolz... Though we left rather late, we still arrived at around 11.30 which is earlier than what we planned.

Once we arrived we went straight to a restaurant name Bonteay Srey. I'm not sure what's so special about this restaurant but I always happen to be there every time I'm in Siem Reap.

At around 13.30 we headed to Ankor Palace Resort and Spa, where we used to go there once. I found a lovely cake name Chocolate Royal Cake. That's my choice. Sis agreed, so we bought it. We paid and went to Ankor Wat.

As always, it was damn hot. My skin color changed and my eyes were half-closed. I forgot to bring my sunglasses :( Wish I didn't lolz... Nvm, I got a hat. A lovely hat which is match to my tee. It helps tich tich de ning na, despite it was sort of stuffy in the head.

Anyway, we did go around Ankor Wat though my sis was sort of really tired. She doesn't like hot but since I insisted, she came along hehehe... Oh... you know what! My heart was beating very fast when I climed up to the top of the temple. The stair was kinda small and broken. But nah... that became nothing when I can see a very beautiful view from the top of Ankor Wat. It was as amazing as it has always been. It's my fourth time to be in Ankor Wat. But I never been tired of seeing the very nice view with green leaves and the wonderful work of art that were carved on the wall of the temple. More espcially when I can see the smile on Absara face. All of them has their own beauty with their warm welcoming smile. Awwww... I love them!

OK!!!! Let's go back to the topic. I keep walking around the temple, taking picture, looking at every Absara, and fianlly came down with a happy feeling. It was sort of a rush cos it was 15.30 already when we left Ankor Wat. We went back to take the cake and went to Cambodian Cultural Village.

Btw, I think I forgot to mentioned that it no longer is a surprise party when Dad told Mum about our visit :( I guess he couldn't remember that it is a surprise party or maybe he's just too happy for Mum that couldn't wait for her to see it by her own. So Mum waited for us there. We, I and my sis, ran into her arms and kissed her follow by a Happy Birthday. There were tears in her eyes. I could felt her joy. Though it didn't surprise her, she still is happy than ever. She kept mentioning about us coming for her birthday every time she met those prospective teacher coming with her. At that moment, there suddenly was a phone call from oversea, it's from my Twin Sis Mum was even happier than she was. This is what I wish for :)

Ok, as we kinda don't have much time, we just go to see this and that around the place. See a show but sorry, forgot the name alerady hehehe... and later we came to Cambodian Cultural Village Restaurant. It was quite cheap for a beffet as it cost only 6$/person. Mum invited another teacher from her group to join. So in total there were 11ppl. I and my sis were eating in a rush, I missed Num Krok and some fresh fruit as there is not have enough time to eat.
Now, the best part comes. Cake were brought and candle were lighted. A music made by a group of traditional musician started and eveyone in table sang. Mum looked at me, looked at sis, and everybody around her as a thanks and telling how happy she is to have this special birthday. This is her BIG 5. She still looks gorgeous with her 50 of age.

I love you MUM!

Time aint waiting for us to enjoy as then it was time to leave. I don't wanna leave at all and I wished I was still on a holiday. I wish I could be with her till the last minutes of her birthday. Well, I just couldn't as it was time to go home.

We arrived at the airport at 19.10. Since it's only a domestic flight, it takes around 15mns to do all the stuff, check in and tax paying. There were one little shop in that waiting room. I just looked around and I found one little-nice-looking-thing. It's a Tiger Balm hahahaha... Funny but ok, I love it and wanna share it with my twin sis. More importantly, it is the only stuff with the Tiger name on it lolz... So I bought two of them. I don't know how I can I send her yet. Will figure it out later.

The flight took off at like 19.50. We spent only 40mns on the plane as the plane landed at 20.30. Since we don't have any luggage, we went straigh outside. Finally I am home with all the tireness from walking, climbing, and the heat of the sun, but the most special thing is, with Love from my MUM.

Bowling Bowling

At around 4, my bro called and asked if I wanna go bowling. I said yes cos I was bored staying at home, surffing the net alone in room. So at around 5.15 I was ready to go. When we first arrived, there were only 4 of us. Others are just on the way. So we started playing. Soon after the rest came and yeah, we just bet with 2$. Oh yeah, I was hoping to win but nah, who could beat my bro nos? So yeah, I lost the first round. Later, Ketya and her friend came. So we divided into 3 group. I were with my bro. I thought I would win cos my bro's score was like 190 sth. However, I played badly with my sis, we turn out to came the second with 4score behind. So sad, lost another 2$ :( However, our last chance to win. I, my sis, and bro did our best and ran up to the first with 403. My score was not good but yeah, better than the previous one hehehe... So I got 4$ back. So good cos after all I got what I lost back heheheh... We took quite a number of pictures and they all are nice but sorry, share later na :)

For Mum Birthday

When she said she is going to Siem Reap, I was not surprise cos I know she loves travelling. But when she said, it falls on her birthday, I was stunned. How could this be? We suppose to have a birthday party for you, mum. But well, she refuse to cancelled the trip. So, it means she's gonna celebrate her birthday alone. BUT HEY!!!! It ain't gonna happen. She's always been a good mum. Thus, she deserve more than this. So, I and my elder sis came up with a plan to celebrate a surprise brithday for her there. We don't tell her that we gonna go to Siem Reap and we give no clue at all about our plan. We hope to have her enjoy her birthday.

Here is how the day should be:

06.00 Sis leaves her home
06.15 Sis picks me up
06.20 Buy breakfast (at Starmart near my house, hotdog and apple juice)
06.30 Leave Phnom Penh (watch movie or might sleep along the way there)
12.00 Arrive Siem Reap (we are gonna drive fast, thus it taks a little longer than usual time, cos mum gonna be at Kulen at this time. We don't think we can catch up with her by then. So we decided not to wait for her return)
12.15 Lunch (anywhere as long as it taste good)
14.00 Buy cake (anywhere where there's cake, a good one, of course ^_^)
14.40 Hang around any temple (where the nearest to Cultural Village cos mum gonna be there around 4)
16.00 Cultural Village (call her and ask where she is. I haven't thought of how to ask yet. Probably we can just wait near the entrance. Then we can bring the cake to her when she enter. Or maybe, we can call her out cos she's gonna be with 40students which I don't think it's a good idea to surprise them all hehehe... Shy lah)
19.00 Go to airport
19.45 Depart from Siem Reap
21.00 Arrive Phnom Penh
22.00 Arrive home
23.00 Sleep (get ready for work the next day)

R.S.V.P

Let's Clear Up the Confusion
I hope that this week's tip will benefit hosts and guests alike, because there seems to be a lot of confusion about the meaning of the above term.

Lack of RSVP's - A Growing Problem
I hear more and more often, and have found in my personal experience, that hosts often do not receive firm indications whether guests plan to attend their parties, even if R.S.V.P. is clearly printed on the invitation. This could mean either one of two things. First it could mean that rudeness is a growing trend in our society. Or, as I would prefer to believe, people no longer understand what the term means. Assuming the best, and that the decline in R.S.V.P.'s can be attributed to ignorance and not rudeness, I will clarify this for the record.

What RSVP Means
The term R.S.V.P. comes from the French expression "répondez s'il vous plaît", meaning "please respond". If R.S.V.P. is written on an invitation it means the invited guest must tell the host whether or not they plan to attend the party. It does not mean to respond only if you're coming, and it does not mean respond only if you're not coming (the expression "regrets only" is reserved for that instance). It means the host needs a definite head count for the planned event, and needs it by the date specified on the invitation.

Why It's Inconsiderate to Not RSVP
An incomplete list of respondents can cause numerous problems for a host including difficulty in planning food quantities, issues relating to minimum guarantees with catering halls, uncertainty over the number of party favors and difficulties in planning appropriate seating, among other things.

So the next time you see R.S.V.P. on an invitation you receive, please call your host and respond promptly.

Mean Girl

You know what happened yesterday? In a group discussion, everyone chose me to be the leader. I said no, they insist. There were still no agreement but we later discuss cos we didn't have much time. When it was running out of time to discuss, teacher came and asked "Who's the chosen leader?" everyone pointed at me. Hell NO! Everyone just kept saying the same thing. I don't understand why would I do it when I already said NO. I'll just do it without the force. It means alot better than to do it when everyone just has no choice but to choose me. Hey! I’m not your last choice. But well, people didn’t hear my thought. So they said again and again with me saying no. When I could no longer hold on, I said “I said NO and I mean NO” Suddenly, 06 girl (one who enrolled in year 2006) just appeared and said, “You are so mean” I turned to her and said “Yes, I am NOW”. You don't have the right to judge me. Who do you think you are? I turned away. Teacher was there. She said “I think Samphors should do it” I look at her and again stand on my decision and said “I don’t change my word” Why would you too don’t understand what the word NO means? My decision was made and you can’t change it unless I want to. And at the mean time, I don't want to change my decision. She turn to everyone and said “Participation in class is counted to be part of your mark” Whatever! I won’t change my mind. That was all I did and everyone was quiet. Urgh! I just embarrassed myself with my stupid decision. Why couldn’t I just do it? Nah… That has never been your favorite. Why would you need to do what you don’t like? That will tell everyone that you mean everything you said. You don’t play with word and act like you want everyone attention in choosing to be something. So just act normal cos that will be just fine ;) OK. So… that was the story.

Appreciation Letter

Not that I got one but I made plenty for those student in Boeung Thom Village. It's a program created by my mum with the Chief. We select 3 student from rank #1-#3 in each class which include grade 9A-E to 7A-E. Totally, 39 student. This is the first time in that village to get such a letter, plus, a package of stuff with little sum in it. I wish I could join but I am so unlucky to not being able to. I do wanna see how happy they would be to get such an honor. This is pride to their parents, I believe. I bet they would frame it and display it in their house cos you know, I would do the same if I got one lolz... So you know, the incentive of seeing those kid being happy making me feel not tired to make it done. I'll show you the appreciation letter if I were to have time ;)

My 1st Vote

Today, waking up and feeling something is different from the other day. It is the Election day! Aww.. that sounds cool to me. I am going to vote for the first time in my life ^_^ I felt excited when I walked there, finding my name, got it checked, got a stamped paper, went to the box, checked the paper, went out, showed the stamped paper (of course, it must be folded), put my finger in the color bottle, took it out and I got a very nice color on it, a beautiful light purple which I like, and that's it! Here I come back home with my eyes on my right pointed finger all the time. The color kept changing, and now it is completely dark brown. My finger does look like a dead finger :-S However, I got sth that is all like the other. When I went out, my eyes were at people’s finger all the time. Sounds so funny but I found it interesting.

You know, when I was a BC student at IFL, everyone in class had that color on their finger, except me and my sis who were the only two that has no rights to vote -_- I felt odd and wish to know what it was like to have that. And finally, I do know now. It’s cool!

I felt it like a holiday already cos everyone gathers in my house. Had lunch together and went to farm land, pick up fruit and stuff. It was really really hot though. I felt like I was grilled. My skin was getting burn. I actually don’t wanna get out of the car already when I arrived. Despite, it was fun when all the sisters and brothers were all together doing the same stuff. I love that and you know, I just my twin sis even more. But though if she were here, she won’t go under the sun cos she will just lay down on a soft bed, cold place, and read her book, romance one, I believe. But at least, she’ll come for a click or two as a shot for the day. That’s a memory.

Ok, in short, the election day to me is nice and interesting which I like and happy with. I finally done wat citizen should do.

Old Pic


While browsing in my sister pc, I came across my own file and found this pic. That was such a long time by now. Guess, it was like in 2003. I was in year 2. Yeah! I think so cos that was the time I went to my friend's wedding. Awww... couldn't believe it! I'm an old lady now :((
