Beauty seeks love in US


Model-turned-actress Saray Sakana received harsh comments about her appearance in the US, but her mother, Mrs Samphos, says many Cambodian-Americans are lining up for a chance to be her daughter’s soulmate.

“My daughter tells me she has many admirers in the States, but has not decided yet,” her mother said, adding: “If I find that one of them truly loves her, I will arrange the wedding right away. I don’t want her to be single any longer, because now she is mature enough.”

After the conclusion of her two-month US tour, the 24-year-old actress was criticised by many Cambodian-Americans who said that meeting her in person was a shock because she was not as beautiful as in her photos and on the screen. In response to these comment, her mother said:

“People have different ways of defining beauty, but I believe that many people fall for her.”
