Cambodians Through My Eyes


The endearing charm of a little child selling souvenirs
to earn a living
The heartbreaking cry begging for USD1
The struggles of men to put food on the table
The march of monks to embark peacefulness
The free education hoping to educate the young generation for a better tomorrow 


Jetty: Tonle Sap

Floating Houses
making ends meet
Child Labour...but they go to school in the morning

food
Nice to see, but once you shot their photograph
they'll demand USD1

No sign of despair
Across
wandering
with destination
getting their Talisman
his bread and butter

"buy this for one dollar...."

Joanne bargaining






Arabian guy politely said
"I cannot buy this, I have bought from you friend and I don't have enough money...okay?






 





School on Saturday





School days : Monday to Saturday








Flip Flop to school is already considered luxury




Hope of Generation






















March of Monks













Cannon Ball!

Rowing against the shallow water





hoping to put food on the table...




Good Samaritans









Floating Market







Floating village at Tonle Sap ...err ignore the man...lol!




a heartbreaking scene of a boy begging for 1 dollar
notice the little child on the other sampan?




Spirit house



Cute....but stupid me for not putting my camera into motion mode....

shallow muddy water...
the job must go on













For me, it was a harrowing experience
For the Cambodians, it is life
For they were born amidst hardship...

God, please bless their land. Amen.
