This photo has reminded me when I was his age as a street boy collecting recycle to make my living. I took him a photo during his work after Old market in Phnom Penh is fired.

Home Made Noodles

Battambang province, Cambodia

The rice mixture is pounded for about thirty minutes and then made into thin noodles.

It’s not hard work for the kids:they  were having a ball.

She doesn’t wholesale the noodles, they are all cooked in her small restaurant in front of the house. Her noodles are well known for their quality and she’d already sold out when I was there mid-morning. Disappointing…


16th November 2017: The Day Democracy Died In Cambodia

Some say democracy is on life support.

It’s not.

It’s dead.

The Supreme Court on Thursday ruled to dissolve the Cambodia National Rescue Party, removing the only existing electoral threat to Prime Minister Hun Sen’s grip on power in the Kingdom and undoing in one stroke the opposition’s gains over the last five years.

After a five-hour trial and two hours of deliberation, presiding judge and senior Cambodian People’s Party official Dith Munty announced the verdict just after 5pm Thursday evening, ordering the disbanding of the CNRP and banning 118 of its senior officials from any political activity in the Kingdom for five years, effective immediately.

Munty made sure to announce that the court’s decision was final and that there could be no appeal.

The hearing was a one-sided event, with the CNRP declining to send legal representation – a move Munty cited as a confession of guilt.

That the presiding Judge is also a senior official from the Ruling Party says everything.

All of the Cambodia National Rescue Party’s 55 National Assembly seats- they are the only real opposition- and its 489 commune chief positions – will be given to more government friendly parties.


It’s over.
