Signs, signs: Operation Smile Cambodia

I haven’t been posting a lot lately. This is one of the reasons why: I haven’t been here long enough but reading the past reports have been an eye-opener for me. Children who are born with a cleft are often unable to eat, speak, socialise […]

From Phuket, Thailand, my Signs, signs entry this week came all the way from Kathmandu, Nepal. As you can see I am still in an arm-chair travel mode, unearthing old photos and reminiscing wonderful memories of my travel adventures, as a solo traveller or otherwise. […]

Photo Hunt #64: This is so WRONG

Dogs can be pretty stubborn sometimes. Here’s Joe caught red-handed with a piece of our dinner in his mouth. A standoff ensued between him and my husband, naturally. For about 15minutes, they stared at each other like that. Joe simply wouldn’t let go of that […]

I have an exciting news for all the female directors and journalists all over the world, especially here in Cambodia. The International Association of Women in Radio and Television (IAWRT) – of which I am a member of – is extending invitations to the 2011 […]

Photo Hunt 061: Raising public Awareness, khmer-style

I was in Kratie province long ago, stopping there to spend the night, on my way to Laos. The bus stopped at the provincial centre, also called Kratie, and the sign below caught my attention as it stands out prominently in the town’s main street. […]

Messy Monday…

Messy Monday…

… and Tuesday, too! Not many of you here know how much of a postcard-and-stamp junkie and a huge fan of snail-mails I am. Nothing beats the feeling of writing down greetings or thoughts on a piece of paper (or postcard), sending them, and receiving […]
