There is no doubt Kimsong has been developed from a difficulties background to reach out a better life. He always hopes that one day he could be become “A man who is highly respected from my community”. He is shy to describe on his funny background.In 1996 he was spun records event faster than editing stories. His introduction to Phnom Penh’s corruption and greed began not as a Cambodia Daily reporter or Phnom Penh Post’s editor but as a manager of the Hong Kong Center nightclub and restaurant.

“By night I smoked cartons of Mild Seven cigarettes and watched Ecstasy transform hardened gangsters into rag dolls swaying to fast music in slow motion. I was thin then, and my hair—thick, curly and big—was a statement as loud as the records I spun” Kimsong said

Well and today as Editor-in-Chief, of the Phnom Penh Post Khmer, Kimsong’s job kept him stuck in the newsroom for at least 13 hours a day. “Working long hours and less sleep is the job he likes”.
