My favourite part of my home

My favorite parts of my home are my living room and my bedroom. If I am in these rooms, I feel very relaxed. I like my bedroom because it has a modern style and looks very beautiful.

How I relax at home

When I want to relax at home, the first thing I do is go into my kitchen and cook. I also like to relax by cleaning the house, and when everything is clean, I like to read books and use the computer. Sometimes I like to listen to music in my bedroom or watch TV. I'm so busy with my job, I haven't got time to go anywhere, so I like to just stay at home whenever I can.  

When I entertain

When I invite friends or relatives to come to my home, I like to serve nice food and talk.

My decorating style

My home is decorated in a modern style, mixing Khmer and Western elements. I like modern styles, but I will never forget my Khmer culture. The Khmer style is very simple, which suits me because I don't like clutter. I also have many pictures on the walls, and I have put statues of King Jayavarman VII and the Apsara in my living room.

What would I change

In the future I want to have a modern villa. In my villa, I want to have a swimming pool, gazebo and garden, and I will fill my villa with modern luxuries.
