End of an Era…soon

Today marks exactly 1 year since Mick and I embarked on this journey to Cambodia. Its been one whole year!?! EEEK! It sure doesn’t feel like it! It seems like it was just yesterday that we were living in our apartment in Camperdown, working in the city, spending our weekends with friends and family, exploring […]

Olympic Stadium Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh is sadly devoid of the leafy parks, sports fields and open areas that we are so used to back home. The main park areas near the Independence Monument, Vietnam Monument, Wat Phnom, Royal Palace and Riverside are surrounded by busy roads which makes exercise and picnic-ing not the nicest experiences.  Koh Pich (Diamond […]

Cambodia – Still developing

Director Roberto Serrini created an incredibly moving piece of footage about Cambodia that was taken using a GoPro and a DJI Phantom drone. The resulting piece of work is a beautiful collection of people, farmland, homes and communities that show what Cambodia is like beyond the confines of the tourist spots of Phnom Penh, Siem […]

Review: Yeon Ga Korean Restaurant

Korean food is something that I have come to really enjoy of late, which is funny considering Sydney is a bit of a hub of Korean food activity not Phnom Penh! But despite this, Mick and I live just around the corner from our own little “Korea-town” on Sotheros Blvd. Amongst the massage parlors, karaoke […]

Review: Sofitel Phokeethra Christmas Brunch

This Christmas, Mick and I decided to take the bull by its horns and splurge on a feast at the Sofitel Phokeethra in Phnom Penh. We wanted to experience a buffet of international standard, drink as much wine as we could fit in our bellies and have a grand old time with our friends while […]

Christmas In Phnom Penh

Spending Christmas in an Asian country like Cambodia has its perks and its downfalls. For one, you escape months of the hype that the shops, media, tv and every friend or acquaintance you have is spreading thickly about Christmas. Early shopping, late shopping, food shopping, everything shopping! Don’t get me wrong, I love a bit […]

Ten Things

Its been 6 months since Mick and I first moved to Cambodia and started working here and what a fun adventure it has been. There’s been torrential rain, protests, armed police wandering the streets, amazing food, kittens, exploring, bike rides, visitors and more. We have had challenges in our jobs, and achievements too. There’s been […]

Review: Comme a la Masion

Mick and I generally don’t eat much Western food when we go out, much to the dismay of our friends. I find that the options for asian food are much more interesting and exciting, not to mention cheaper. And knowing how to cook Western food probably adds to that disinterest when we eat out. A […]

Elections in Kampuchea

Mick and I have been fortunate enough to live through an election period in Cambodia. It was noisy, it was loud, it was exciting. I love election periods back home (usually) so seeing how the system worked here was very interesting. The election was held on July 28 and the month-long campaigning period leading up […]

The Kitten Adventures

As I previously mentioned, we were fortunate enough to have a stray cat take a liking to our place and have her kittens in in about 6 weeks ago. We lost one of the kittens to an AWFUL MONSTER (tom cat) but the other four grew, and grew, and grew! They have been the source […]
