How often do you go shopping?

Men Chan Motita, 22 years old, a senior  at Setec University
“The weekend is the time when I always put on the waiting list for my schedule because there will be a lot of fun. Usually, I go shopping on Saturday or Sunday with my friend. Even if I do not have a lot of money, I will save it for shopping. It is my pleasure to go along with my friend. I like new things, especially the new styles. I want to be up to date with my style. I do not like the products which are used by many people. I do not like copying or following other people’s style. Therefore, I always go shopping every weekend to keep updating my style.”

Naza Pich, 18 years old, student at Hun Sen Mittapheap High School
“I go shopping when there will be a special occasion such as a wedding, party or birthday. When I need to join celebrations, I am supposed to wear a smart dress that is appropriate for the circumstances. As a result, I always buy new things for different circumstances. In my opinion, the appearance creates the first impression for everyone, so it is important to make it attractive. I do not have much time, but I still need to go shopping if I am to join a party or some other event. Most of the time, I buy new clothes, shoes and belts.”

Noul Vanet, 21 years old, sophomore student at National University of Management
“Shopping is my favourite hobby due to the fact that it always makes me happy. I go shopping whenever I have time. Even though I do not have much money to buy something, I just enjoy window shopping. If I feel bored or sad, I like to go shopping. It can help to reduce my stress as well. I always go with my friends to find something new, particularly clothes.”

Yong Makara, 19 years old, student at Wat Phnom High School
“I do not have much time for shopping. I go shopping when I need to go somewhere. For instance, I go shopping before the holidays, such as Khmer New Year, Pchum Ben or the Water Festival. Due to the fact that I always plan to go somewhere with my family on those days, I need a lot of things for the celebrations. Shopping is not my hobby. For sure, I do not like it, but I still need to go shopping. Consequently, I only go in preparation for the holidays or some other special occasion.”

Nov Sinoun, 23 years old, senior student Phnom Penh International University

“For me, shopping is the thing that always hurts my pocket. I go shopping only if I have money to buy what I want. I often go when I just get my salary. I often go shopping at the beginning of the month. I like it, but I do not want to waste the time and money mostly on just that. If I go shopping, I could not save money. Therefore, I like it when I have money to afford anything that I want. If not, I may feel sad when I cannot buy what I want. The beginning of the month is the best time for me to go shopping. I do not like window shopping.”
