Pork and eggs

If you happen to go to Cambodia, don’t forget to order chicken or pork rice with this long-time-cooked egg. It’s really delicious and cheap. It comes along with special made soured cucumber and carrot. Adding a few drops of soy source, you’ll ask for more.

Have you ever been to Cambodia? Yes it is where I come from. As of now, Cambodia is a developing country. We have the current prime minister who has been in service for over 20 years. Laws and order are not that great and the people are hoping something could be done about it. We have high rate of traffic accident and hmmmm its quite annoying.

In the mean time, not all is bad. For example, despite not having so much, Cambodian people are one of the kindest I have ever known. Should you have a chance to visit the countryside and meet some senior people. They will have a big smile for you, invite you in and offer you drink or local home-grown vegetable. New generations of youths are coming together volunteering for their community. They do cleaning up activities at the beach or local market and so on. So I guess and hope we are really getting better.

We also have a good potential of tourism development. We have over hundreds of ancient temples out there awaiting more visit and care from everyone. It is important to appreciate what we have and do our best to make it better. May be I’m so dumb to figure out those reasons why it has to take us so long.

I always heard that politics is so complicated. May be its not so wrong, but then if people’s well being and welfare is important to you as leaders and everyone; shouldn’t we focus on that?

It doesn’t matter how small we are as a country, but if we lose hope in finding the great things we can do for our life and our country, that is the sad thing. So just like the birds, they fly and show you beauty of unity, love and hope; we too should be positive and do not give up on ourselves. The roads ahead may not always be smooth, but we are together and we move forward.
