Shin Jhin Oh 31-year-old, a senior student in English literature at the Institute of Foreign Language of the Royal University of Phnom Penh.

With careful daily observation, one will realise that the international students pool in Cambodia has increased. Shin Jhin Oh is telling us about his hobby during his 5-year stay in Cambodia.

This 31-year-old graduate majored in architecture in Incheon, Korea. He is now a senior student in English literature at the Institute of Foreign Language of the Royal University of Phnom Penh.

“My father works here and I come with him,” says Shin Jhin Oh. “He’s left now but I’m still here because I work for one local private institute.”

His first time in Cambodia was a bit difficult but he achieved adaptation by observing people’s way of life in Cambodia.

“I found out I could live hear happily,” he says enthusiastically.

“Khmer food sampling is one of my hobbies. I can eat everything except Brohok (Khmer Cheese).”

All historic sites are common knowledge to him.

“I like Angkor Wat temples and Bayon temples as well. I like strolling around the Royal Palace. The weather here is quite different here. It is a bit hot but tolerable.”

On a last note he said that Cambodia was an interesting place much better than any other place he has ever been to.
