As the world is amazed by blog phenomenon, so do I! I started blogging in 2006 with my Trajoke 4 Everyone and started to actively promote the awareness of blogging in Cambodia in Khmer Language.

For a year, more than 1900 young people were trained through my blog workshop (Personal Information Technology) at universities in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. Some key bloggers involve in my program include Virak, Lux, DeeDee and Ms K. And now, another step forward, Lux,Virak and I is taking initiative to organize Cambodian Blogger Summit – the first ever event to happen in Cambodia:

Visiting Kolen Mountain

Last weekend I have a chance to visit Kolen mountain in Siem Reap province with my family and relatives. The way from Angkor to Kolen waterfall is good, but dusty.

It’s was raining during we reach the Kolen waterfall.  We enjoyed the waterfall under not heavy fallen rain. It was raining only on the mountain, because on the way back to Angkor we didn’t see any rain drop, and the still dusty.

We took picture when go up to Preah Ang Thom site.
