My favourite part of my home

My favorite part of my home is my gazebo and garden. It makes me feel very relaxed to sit with my husband and my children in the gazebo. I like my bedroom too because it is finished in wood and looks very beautiful.

The best way to relax at home

I relax at home by sewing clothes, and I am also having singing lessons. I like to spend time cooking in the kitchen and I sometimes watch TV. When I feel tired I like to go and relax in my gazebo, although I often end up talking with my husband about my business.  

When I entertain guests

I like to have a party every weekend to entertain my friends and guests. We drink some wine and eat nice food. I like to show them around my home, such as the living room and the bedroom, and take them walking around my garden. We listen to music, and sometimes watch TV.

My decorating style

In my home, I have decorations in the Khmer style only as I don't like the Western style of decorating. The Khmer style is much simpler and I don't like my home to be too cluttered with decorations. I have many pictures on the walls of the countryside, Angkor Wat and my family. And I also like to decorate with Khmer musical instruments. My husband and I designed the look of our home.

Things I would change

The only thing I would change is my curtains. In fact, I like to change them and wash them often as I want my home to always be clean, beautiful and happy. Even if I am busy I take the time to clean my home. I am very happy living here as I built this home and I don't want to move to another place.
