This social networking site is spreading in popularity among young Cambodians. Some of us are checking Facebook every day. I take a break from my work and study time to go on Facebook and chat with my friends – it’s great to relieve stress. Facebook really comes in handy because I can keep in touch with my friends who are local and even my friends abroad. It also gives me access to world-wide news. In fact, all I have to do is ‘like’ a news or entertainment website and I’ll get hot, updated information automatically. Talk about convenience!

Fried rice with beef
It might be a simple dish, and it might not be anything too special, but fried rice with beef is delicious and easy to eat just about anywhere. When I’m getting ready for work, I can cook it up quickly before I step out of the door in my usual morning rush. Then I can have a delicious lunch when I’m on break. It’s fun to make for weekend picnics when my friends and I get out of the city for a drive.


You can’t argue that sport is a perfect way to make friends and stay healthy. Football is famous across different countries and it’s something special that cultures keep close to their heart. Cambodia is getting better and better at football. For me, I’m not only a football fan, but I love to play. After work, I go straight to playing a happy game with my friends. While I’m playing, I can release stress and feel great. Also, after having dinner and a bath, I have a great sleep. I won’t ever be a professional player, but that shouldn’t stop anyone from loving the game as much as I do.

Popcorn TV
It’s surprising, it’s hilarious, and it’s Popcorn TV! It keeps the audience laughing and entertained. In fact, it seems that those who are being chatted about don’t even get angry. Instead, they burst into laughter when they hear the gossip. This program is well-organised, and the producers definitely have good expertise in putting together a great chat-fest – even if it is at the expense of others.


The most popular Hollywood movie can be found on the website, www.moviedunk.com.  If you want to see new clips straight from theatres, check out the website and select your favourites. Though the picture quality isn’t good, which can be a pain on the eyes, it can be very entertaining. It’s a great alternative to spending all your money buying DVDs. When you click on a movie clip, a black bar will appear for you to download ‘ClickPotato’. From there, just click ‘start’, and it will download automatically for easy use.
