5 Cool things with Tith Chandara

5 Cool things with Tith Chandara


Incense (Buddhism and others)
Incense is not only useful for Buddhist prayer; it can have a wide range of uses. The scented sticks originated in China but have since spread across Asia and around the world. Adding incense to the rooms in your houses can not only make them smell a lot better, they can keep away mosquitoes and other bugs. If you own a shop, restaurant or bar, incense can help attract more customers and also make them feel more comfortable once they are there. Incense can even replace a clock when you are meditating or relaxing.

Non-alcohol perfume (Islam)
For the people of Islam, non-alcoholic perfume is the answer to religious rules that outlaw the use of alcohol in any form. But even for non-Islamic people, non-alcoholic perfume provides a subtle scent that can be attractive without being overwhelming. The popular scent of Jasmine is an example of a sweet and subtle smell.

Vegetarian food (Hinduism and others)
Most restaurants in Phnom Penh serve some sort of vegetarian food, but restaurants from Hindi-speaking countries, specialise in such dished. There is no meat in vegetarian food, but there can be animal products such as eggs and dairy products. A restaurant owner in Phnom Penh said that eating vegetarian can reduce cholesterol and prevent animal diseases and poorly prepared meat. Vegetarian food is cooler today since is helps cut down on factory farms that are a major contributor to global warming.


Cross necklaces (Christianity)
The cross necklace has become a trend for youngsters, regardless of their faith. If you go into trendy clothing and jewellery shops around Phnom Penh, you can’t help but notice the presence of the Jesus cross. The cross can represent Christianity, but many of the youth around the city just wear it because it looks cool and makes them feel hip. For Christian groups, the cross necklace is a great tool for
fundraising for church events or group trips.


Small Buddha statue in your car (Buddhism)
While putting decorations on the dashboard or rearview mirror of your car is common practice in Cambodia, nothing beats having Buddha in your car. Many people believe that being accompanied by Buddha will help make you safer in your car, and he will look out for you on your travels. Whether or not it actually makes a difference, you will feel better knowing that if you become distracted, someone will still be watching out for you.
