5 Cool things with Kaing Mengun

Anne Frank
Are books the end of boredom? The answer is yes, and if you are interested in World War II and want to learn more about that period, Anne Frank can be your best friend. In 1942, with Nazis occupying Holland, a 13-year-old Jewish girl and her family fled their home in Amsterdam and went into hiding. For the next two years, another family joined them in their “secret annex” in an old office building. They faced boredom, hunger, the constant cruelties of living in confined quarters and the ever-present threat of discovery and death. Reading Anne Frank, a diary of a young girl, will allow you to see and feel her experiences during this time.


Pacebook games
Facebook has become incredibly popular for networking and communication, but it is also becoming a favorite place for people to waste their time playing online games. You can kill your boredom by playing games such as FarmVille and Happy Farm. Planting real crops is laborious and dirty, but you can grow potatoes, tomatoes, apples, roses and all kinds of crops and flowers on your Facebook page in just a couple of minutes. Learn to grow, harvest and sell agriculture on these simple, well-designed games, but be careful because once you start your agriculture business on one of these games, you won’t want to stop.


Phnom Chiso Mountain
Are you an adventurous person? If so, climbing a mountain is one of the most exciting weekend activities there is. Phnom Chiso Mountain, located in Takeo province, approximately 62 kilometers south of Phnom Penh is easily reachable and super cool. Food is available at the base of the mountain with reasonable prices and unique tastes. There is also a training centre that teaches Cambodian women sewing and needling skills. On the peak of the mountain, you can enjoy countryside views of rice fields, forests, modest houses and mountains. In addition, there is a Buddhist pagoda where you can learn about Cambodian culture, history, and religion.
