Khmer New Year days in Phnom Penh

In the morning of 3rd day on April 15, 2008 of the Khmer New Year in Wat Preah Puth pagoda, there are not many people go to pagoda, but the first and second there were a lot of people. Phnom Penh looks calmly during the day time and most of Cambodian people always go to their home town in the countryside.

There are crowd people at Wat Phnom where accompanied by traditional games and music. No water pouring and neither powder painting in the town and it is a good thing that government is able to control these acts, but they can not crack down gambling and street bag snatching.

The beautiful Independent Monument at night time.

Soprach hang out with young generation Miss Rany, Rottanak, Pisseth and Kimsros who were ex-peer educators of Playing Safe Project (2003-06) where I used to work for CARE. They are young brilliant and initiative to create a new local NGO namely Population and Health for Development to provide a service of sexual and reproductive health promotion among adolescence in Phnom Penh. We still keep in touch and always fun when we meet.

We are cheering for our New Year day at Wat Bottum park in Phnom Penh.
