Carrot and apple juice
Even though they may not be totally new, it’s worth reiterating that a mixture of carrot and apple juice can provide a human being with valuable vitamins.  Carrots promote good eyesight, while apples boost your overall health.  Both contain Vitamin C, which helps the immune system fight off disease, and phenols, which help reduce cholesterol .  They can also prevent tooth decay by cleaning teeth and killing bacteria.  Just two apples and a single carrot are enough to make a glass of juice  –  and give you a world of benefits.


3D glasses and TV screen
At home, most people are limited to watching regular 2D video and need to go to the cinema if they want the thrill of 3D.  3D film technology allows viewers to see images in a movie as if they were popping out of the screen.   Now, with the advent of 3D glasses and 3D home television, viewers need not leave their living rooms to experience the mind-boggling thrill of 3D video.  No need to get up and go to a crowded cinema, because it’s right here at home.  Awesome!


Salad

A salad is a mixture of vegetables, often containing slices of carrots, leaves of lettuce, diced tomatoes, maybe some mayonnaise and a pinch of salt.  It’s delicious and easy to make.  Unlike with other foods, I don’t need to wait for any of the ingredients to cook because salad is eaten raw.  The only preparation required is “tossing” all the vegetables together in a bowl, then serving it in an attractive bowl.  I’ll usually spend 10 to 15 minutes making a delicious salad, then use the time I save to do the things I like, instead of rushing off to school with a fully cooked meal.
How about you?


Music
Music is timeless, and has maintained its popularity throughout human history. Music can help me relax and relieve the stress of schoolwork.  By listening to music, I can also improve my listening skills.  There are many genres of music, including pop, country and  R&B.  The genre of music often changes to fit the person listening and the situation they’re in.  For example, if I’m riding a bus on the way to the countryside, I’ll listen to country music.  Music is a big part of my life.


Used books

Today in Phnom Penh, it’s easy to find good used books.  Even though they may have a little damage on the cover or some slightly bent pages inside, they are still easily readable and incredibly affordable compared with new books.  Even young students can afford them, and read the same books as everyone else.  Literature: the great equaliser!
