Entertainment

LAST week, we discussed food and drink trends among young Cambodians. If you missed that editorial, you can find it at http://www.phnompenhpost.com/index.php/LIFT/.

This week, we focus on entertainment, which is one of young people’s favourite ways to release stress, to relax, and to socialise with friends and family.

There are various kinds of entertainment, such as dancing, singing, trips for sightseeing and leisure in education. This week, Lift will discuss entertainment that young people like.

Today, young people are looking for  something new and different in leisure and study alike. The  curriculum at universities offers students a range of subjects from which to choose, but it seems the one thing lacking is a film school for students who are interested in this field (4 &11).

The number of nightclubs in Phnom Penh has increased rapidly in recent times. Furthermore, some of these nightclubs have opened on school or university campuses, having an effect on students who study there and providing some unexpected impacts.

One of Lift’s reporters examines this issue and raises some concerns about its effects on future youth.

On a lighter note, we found a young man who has a good voice and can play guitar. This man, originally from the provinces, came to the city to find his dream. He began working as a DJ and singing at a nightclub. Now his dream has begun to come true.

Furthermore, we also find a woman who has a career as a backstage manager. What does her job involve?

This week, Lift also brings you other interesting stories. We look forward to your feedback via [email protected]. Please enjoy Issue 86!
