5 Cool things with Pan Simala

Tight blouse
Rather than borrowing the style of a movie star or pop singer, have you ever considered adopting your very own style? Choosing the right fashion for yourself can totally boost your coolness. Personally, I can’t imagine being a short woman and wearing a loose outfit that makes me look more petite than I already am. Whether you’re slim or a bit overweight, don’t be too shy to add some tight blouses to your wardrobe. This fashion choice not only helps you to fit in most places and occasions, but also shows your confidence about your body shape and curves. If you don’t have anything like this yet, get shopping!


Florist
If you can’t make your hobby into a career, it doesn’t mean you have to give it up when you reach adulthood. There’s nothing that can make you feel self-assured like pursuing your own talent. Impersonating a florist has been my favorite game since childhood. I can’t remember how many books and websites I have visited for lessons and ideas about flower arrangements. What encourages me to continue this hobby is the thumbs-up I often get from people who see my decorations. Now, it’s time for you to dig out your hidden talent and remember to never give it up. Even if it isn’t making you any money, your talents are what make you unique.


Washing Machine
Unlike cooking, an activity that engages all five of your senses, washing clothes is probably the most boring household chore in history. Repeatedly soaking and then wringing out wet clothes can quickly make you crazy. It’s even worse in dry season when the heat makes clothes full of sweat and dirt. Why torture yourself? Save up a few hundred bucks and get a washing machine that will allow you to eliminate this tiring chore from your daily schedule entirely. You can share it with other family members, and you will surely become the most popular person around.


Hello Kitty
Even if you’re not a superstitious person, there’s always a particular symbol or object that makes you feel good to be with. While Hello Kitty may just seem like a sign of a girly product to Cambodians, Japanese people see Hello Kitty as a sign of good luck. For me it’s a special sign of cozy living. Besides having my door, mirror, closets, clock and bedding set printed with Hello Kitty pictures, I rarely go anywhere without a Hello Kitty in my bag. Pick your favorite symbol and don’t let it go.


Vegetarian food
Science has proven that eating a lot of fruit and veggies is the key to a healthy lifestyle. The growing number of vegetarians, vegans or macrobiotic dieters shows that people are paying attention. These days it almost seems like a fashion among celebrities and people in developed countries, with vegetarian restaurants becoming some of the most popular culinary choices. Even if we know about the benefits of fruit and veggies, sticking to the rule isn’t easy, especially in Cambodia, where finding a vegetarian dish can seem impossible. If I can survive without meat for a week, I always feel proud and more energetic than when I fill my stomach with unhealthy foods.
