Wow! Cambodian jasmine rice won the ‘2012 World Best Rice’ Award at the global rice tasting competition during the World Rice Conference (WRC) organised by The Rice Trader (TRT) in Bali, Indonesia, from September 26-28, 2012. While this is old news, it has just now been publicised on Facebook, leading many surprised people to share their thoughts.

It is interesting that the comments on the Facebook page seem like an international debate because there are many nations talking about it.

Ronald Sha stated: “It’s true, Khmer rice is very flavorful like none of the other kinds of rice around.”

However, Bankke Owen did not agree with Ronald Sha and commented that he thinks Vietnamese and Thai rice is better.

Sofia KH replied: “[email protected] u think? Plz do not think but try cos what u think is not always true. We export lots of rice to VN and Thailand and they export those to the world in their name. But during the competition they had to use their own and that explain why we Cambodian won.”

Peter P Khieu commented: “Jason,the smart ass, that’s because Thailand has the best rice that does not mean they can win every year. What goes up will come down.”

Jason Superior commented to Peter with advice: “Peter: The way u speak really shows ur bad status. i also dun want to speak to that kind of person but it’s too much. If u say Thailand has the best rice, it means nobody can compete or beat..yet Cambodia is the one who won the World Best rice, u have to accept the truth dude..Thanks:)”

People should not think that they are always the best. and they should try to accept the truth that they are not always winners.
