5 cool things by Sim Virinea

Decorative mugs
WE all know that drinking pure water helps you stay healthy.  But to make this mundane necessity more exciting, just complement your drink with a beautiful clay mug in your choice of shape, size, colour and style. It can even have pictures on it!  Usually, this means funny or romantic cartoon images, but it can also be a beautiful vista.  Decorative mugs can be used by everyone.  If you want one for yourself, they’re available at most of the markets in Cambodia.

Shopping online
CAMBODIAN teenagers love buying things online, especially via Facebook, and the trend is growing rapidly.  Online shopping is extremely convenient and can be done exclusively from home or in front of any computer console.  Just log on to Facebook, view all the items in a given shop, then contact the seller to buy the product of your choice.  Almost too easy!

Messager bags

MOST Cambodian women today are familiar with the messenger bag, a backpack-alternative that uses single strap thrown over your shoulder or across your chest.  These bags keep your arms free and don’t weigh you down.  You’ll also feel comfortable and modern with these stylish bags, which are perfect for commuting, carrying books to study, or heading out to a party.  
Go buy one!

Ice cream
Cool! Cool! Cool! Everyone likes to eat ice cream because it’s cold and creamy, tasty and comforting.  But eat it quickly, because it’s sure to melt!  Put a  spoonful of ice cream in your mouth, seal your lips and enjoy the smooth taste. Let it melt in your mouth, if you want.  The ice cream will land directly on your tongue and you can savour the flavour at your own pace.

Stress balls

DO you know what a stress ball is?  It’s no more than a squishy ball that you can squeeze between your fingers to relieve stress.  If you’re frustrated or angry, just put a stress ball in your hand and clench your fist as hard as you can.  It’s hard to tear because it’s soft and rubbery, and it will take all your anger away.  Try out a stress ball any time you’re not feeling well.
