More Cambodia.. thinking of Kim Fay today..

Meet Mr. Thom my Tuk Tuk driver.. he took me all over Phnom Penh.. waited patiently for me all day.. 
Outside the Russian market.. I mean how can one decide which ONE tea pot to buy here?..

or which one stack of cutest pottery bowls?.. in a hurry.. thanks for your patience Mr. Thom

He took me to the market as well.. yes... I did eat more than one of these delicious Rambutan's.. Rambutan is rich in vitamin C and antioxidants. Besides being able to prevent cancer, reduce falls, and prevent aging, rambutan can also increase male fertility.
The orange robes add the color to this street, totally.. and they all want to/need to learn to speak English with you..

This Restaurant is a Swinging one.. he he.. pull up a hammock and swing after lunch.. She rents out swings for those afternoon zzz's... 

The FCC in Phnom Penh ..
They serve a mean Margarita.. with the freshest of home made crisps.. and the beer is cold!
Sunsets over Phnom Penh.. I wish you a good weekend..

and special thoughts for Kim Fay and  her groom today..

I didn't marry you because you were perfect. I didn't even
marry you because I loved you. I married you because you
gave me a promise. That promise made up for your faults.
And the promise I gave you made up for mine. Two imperfect
people got married and it was the promise that made the marriage.
And when our children were growing up, it wasn't a house that
protected them; and it wasn't our love that protected them - it was that
 Thornton Wilder, The Skin of Our Teeth
Congratulations on your wedding.. I wish you both joy.. enjoy ...


  1. And after the choosing of teapots and bowls, how to bring them all home... aren't they gorgeous! That's a beautiful sentiment on marriage, too. All the best to your friend and her new hubby...
