5 Cool things by Pech Sovannary

FANCY a cappuccino? Cappuccino is a mixture of coffee, sugar, milk and a dash of cream. It’s neither bitter nor sweet. Originally from Europe, it is nevertheless very tasty and enjoyable. I would say it’s one of the nicest drinks to start the day. Or a cappuccino can wake you up during the day if you’re not feeling fresh. Why not try a cup?

Professional camera
DIGITAL cameras are designed to record activities or events by retaining the images, so these days most people really enjoy taking photos. They use their own mini-cameras, phone cameras or even webcam. I did prefer the professional camera, although others have criticised its size, weight and  high price. Nevertheless, the quality of the pictures it takes is amazing, and the user can control all the functions such as focus point, lighting and shutter speed. You can, for instance, have a blurry background, which  normal cameras cannot achieve. Try a professional camera, and you’ll definitely fall in love with it, just as I did.

Suki soup

WHAT kind of food would you be thinking of if you were planning to go out for dinner? I would definitely say, “Just suki soup,”  for three reasons. First of all, there’s the taste: it’s so yummy and healthy. And places that  serve suki soup are normally quite convenient. Lastly, and interestingly, is  the price. From my experience of outdoor food, suki soup isn’t that expensive – maybe a similar price to pizza or barbecue. As a result, it’s my favourite choice.

Reading magazines
ONE of my cool pastimes is reading magazines, because I can gain  awareness and be entertained at the same time. I can reduce the pressure from study and work by taking my time to turn the pages, look at the pictures and read a few articles. That’s a lot of fun, and it lets me catch up with social activities and concerns. Most important, it’s a way of building up your reading habit to the point where you can tackle big books. Magazines are just the start of my reading life.


DURIAN has always been considered one of the Kingdom’s smelliest fruits. Some people deny eating it for its smell or the price. It’s actually expensive compared with other local fruits, but it’s my favourite fruit ever. I just love the taste, the shape and the smell. In fact, I love everything to do with durian, such as durian ice cream and durian cake.
