My favorite quote to live by:
Be a better you, anything else will be better
A little bit more about me personally:
I am an introvert with a curious soul who enjoys and appreciates life through simplicity, reading, photography, cycling, music, film and travel. I like exploring a lot of different things and write them here as my journal and share with you hoping we might be on the same path and they can be useful where you need them. I do not call myself an expert or someone who knows better than you. I believe each of us is unique and incomparable. In fact, I am a student of life. I love meeting good people like you and have a cup of tea and have a long conversation about life and things if we happen to meet in person. Let’s learn from one another.
Reading and Writing. I have learned a lot from reading books more than I went to college and want to write. I believe writing is freedom to express oneself and a powerful way to communicate to large audience and can change someone’s life. This blog is one of my journeys of writing.
Photography. I am always inspired by people’s lives, hope and energy and appreciate nature or simplicity. So I mostly capture street life or little flower. I learned to use Digital Camera by reading manual. Nikon D200 was my first camera. I focus on more creative than tools and technical things. I photograph with anything I have with me. So 90% of my personal photos were shot on smartphone.
Music. I like all kind of music. I listen to all kind of music from any part of the world from lullaby to EDM. My favorite ones:
Carmen by Stromae, on social media addiction
Te Quiero by Stromae, on love, hate, passion
On Top Of The World by Imagine Dragons, on love, travel, and live your dream
Colors of the Wind by Vanessa Williams, on human being
The nights by Avicii, on living a life worth to remember
稻香 (Dao Xiang) by 周杰伦 (Jay Chou), on live a simple life
遠く遠く by 槇原敬之, on friendship
Vacation time by Part Time Musicians, on slowing down our life
When I have to choose not to work for money, I choose to work for children, women and social work project. I am a free spirit, silly and childish sometimes. Working with children is super fun and there are something to learn from them. They are kind of a reminder of something I forget when I grow up. The Little Prince was right, “All grown-ups were once children… but only few of them remember it.”
Working with and for women is where I learn how strong women are. Social work gives me an opportunity to give back to society and meet amazing people.
Adventurous travel and minimalism. I like travel both in luxurious or backpacking way. But mostly I don’t value thing much, I always travel light and more flexible.
Lessons I learned on life…is that to live a good life is to enjoy and appreciate the process not the outcome.
Lessons I learned on connecting to other people…wherever you are, whoever you are, treat people the way you want to be treated.
Lessons I learned on travel and person development…Been traveled to a lot of places does not make you superior to others. All you need is to be a better you, not than anyone because…”Nobody is superior, nobody is inferior, but nobody is equal either. People are simply unique, incomparable. You are you, I am I.” – Osho
My favorite quotes:
“Be a student, not a follower. Don’t just go do what someone says. Take interest in what someone says, then debate it, ponder it and consider it from all angles.” – Jim Rohn
“Nobody is superior, nobody is inferior, but nobody is equal either. People are simply unique, incomparable. You are you, I am I.” – Osho
“To live the good life is to enjoy and appreciate the process, not just the outcome.”
“Love alone cannot survive the marriage. It takes compromising, commitment, patience and more”
“I am here to express myself not to impress anyone”
“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one,”
George R.R. Martin
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”
“What you think, you become. What you feel, you attract. What you imagine, you create.”
Mainly, here is what I do and what you can expect from my blog:
To improve my writing and encourage Cambodian readers in Khmer, I write and cite both in Khmer and English from useful resources e.g. articles, books, videos from TEDx
To break my shy and introvert shell, I go out interviewing success and wise people to share their life and entrepreneurship journey with you.
