Volleyball!!!

I generally bring a little something with me when I go to the orphanage. Food, little games, something.  Two weeks ago when I went to the orphanage I was speaking with the kids in Khm-English (Khmer when I can, English when I can’t) and they started asking me for a ‘ball-taya.’  They assured me it […]

Can we do it Gangnam Style?

So apparently Gangnam Style is pretty big everywhere right now. Psy has been pretty big over in Cambodia since I moved.  My roommate showed me Psy one of the first days I was here.  He’s been on Ellen.  He’s been on SNL. He’s even been on CNN. If you are not so privy to what […]

Rathanak

So, I was at the orphanage the other day and the orphanage director’s […]

Khmer Vocabulary

More vocab lessons!!! Yay!!!  Oh and I didn’t say this last time however my transliteration is not perfect but it seems to be pretty close to accurate (to me) for speaking. “joom ree-up lee-ah” – good bye (formal).  Once again, when you are being formal hands go into prayer pose and you bow. “lee-ah howey” – good […]

Not So Blind

Working for a church and now as a.. um.. ‘missionary’ [that feels weird to say] I’ve been blessed enough to get a lot of personality training and personal development.  One thing that has been heavily mentioned in all of the training is the idea of blind spots.  You know, the things that everyone else can […]

Zelda vs Cambodia

As I’m learning to get around the city streets of Cambodia via my tuk tuk I’m constantly thinking of old Nintendo game Zelda.  Did any of you ever play it??? Just like starting out in Zelda, there as so many black areas in my map.  I remember loving Zelda and playing it a lot (well, […]
