5 Cool things

Bank Card
Having money is a necessity for an independent woman, and having access to that money when you need it is no less important. A bank card is a crucial tool for a woman who wants to be self-sufficient and stylish, of course. It can get you shoes, clothes, new technology or other things you need for school or work. Financial support from your parents, spouse or other people can help you pay the bills, but in using their money, you must give up much of your own freedom. You must use your bank card wisely, though, and make sure you have money left for life’s essentials.

Big bags
Have you ever heard that you can tell a woman’s personality from the bag she carries? Well, whether it’s true or not, a big bag is definitely a current fashion in Cambodia. Using a big bag indicates that a woman is strict, careful and hard-working, but more than that, it is super convenient. Except for going to weddings and parties, I prefer a large bag because it can hold makeup, accessories, documents, a small laptop and a small knife for cutting fruit to kill time when I am bored.

House Keys
As most Cambodian daughters live with their parents, it is not easy to attend late-night parties or social gatherings, which are important to building up friendships outside of the workplace. Once you have permission to stay out late, never forget to take a set of house keys with you. Then you can get home late without disturbing your family members or the neighbours. The keys to your house will enable you to experience more exciting places than your kitchen.

High Heels
When it comes to beauty, my ideal is a combination of style and confidence. That’s what high heel shoes do for me. They not only give me good posture and a feeling of femininity, but also boost up my confidence in walking and talking to people. If you work in an industry related to fashion and beauty like I do, you can’t just simply wear flat shoes. As a Korean proverb says, “Good shoes take you to a good place!”


iPod

In a city where young women are likely to be approached by unfamiliar guys, going around the city without being bothered is a luxury. But now it’s not that hard to do, just put in your headphones, turn up the volume on your iPod, tune out the people around you and tune into the music. This is the most polite and enjoyable way of ignoring the people you don’t want to interact with. Sometimes, everyone needs a private moment to just sit and relax with their favourite music and let their stresses fade away.
