Honestly, I've put off writing a review for this book because I couldn't quite figure out what to say to convince you guys of how great it is.
This author is amazing and I hope she becomes one of the most famous Cambodian authors of not only our generation but for many generations to come.
The story is based on her loss and survival during the KR era. She decided to write fiction because she couldn't trust her memories (big kudos for the balls to admit that). Instead
You know, I was really dreading getting up at 6am today and coming into work but wasn't so bad afterall.
My boss dropped off his christmas card with one of the coolest quotes in it.

Markets closed at 1pm and the rum and egg nog came out. Good stuff.
Happy Holidays everyone!
So today has been a day of mini-victories. I got up this morning and managed to get into work before 10am. I made it to lunch at 12pm without throwing up. And now it looks like I'll probably be successful in faking my way through the workday (with the help of KL that is).
Whoever decided it was a good idea to have fried chicken and vodka shots last night was severely wrong. Worst was the idea to continue our night at the local karaoke joint with bottles of beer and soju. TGIT (thank
So it's that time of year again. Personal Assessement time! Worst time of the year for me. I really have a hard time figuring out what to write or even remembering what I did this year that would entitled me to any sort of a raise or a bonus.
It's not that I don't see my worth, I do. It's just that I don't like having to tell people of what I've accomplished and I don't think it should be necessary for me to. So instead I'm seeking refuge online. And reading a bunch of blogs about
Just wanted to get the word out there to all those that would be interested. The Royal Ontario Museum (located in Toronto) will be hosting an exhibition on the S-21 prison and the Cambodian Genocide. In addition to the exhibition they will be hosting a variety of events.
Please check out the link and bookmark the dates. I'm going to try and attend as many as I can.
So I'm going to the CNE (Canadian National Exhibition) tonight. I'm going to walk right past the rides and the warehouse of ridiculously great deals on clothes and seat myself right beside the 17 food trucks currently parked near the food pavillion.
Tonight will be a bacon & taco night. I'm going to start with a lovely appetizier of bacon chips in Jack Daniel's sauce. Middle courses of Tacos (stuffed with all kinds of stuff) and then finish the feast off with Bacon Funnel Cake.
So it's only been a year and I'm bored. I feel like there is no more growth to be had where I'm at. Even if I were to be promoted tomorrow, I probably would still feel bored. I need a new challenge.
I'm getting into network mode again. Researching and talking.
One of the stocks I've been following got listed on the TSX. They had a promotional party and I decided to crash it. One of the easiest parties I've crashed. Open bar, drunk executives and stock tips. Also some
So, it's been a year and something since I've been married. We had a great party and lots of drunken fun. Ended the night at a bar doing beer towers and eating french fries. I love being married. What I don't like is this question....When will you have kids?
I honestly hate it! Why does it matter when I want to have kids? And why do you continue to probe when I tell you later? Is there nothing worth asking a married person/lady after marriage other than about kids? Seriously, have

Alright, just a quick question for the folks that still frequent this place or for the passerby who thinks this question is worth an answer or a penny of your thoughts...
I know that success is measured by a lot of things, a bunch of hippy happy things but let's take this to the capital age and try and put a monetary sum on it.
How much money would you need for YOU to feel successful? And don't give me those pink coloured, politically correct answers of happiness is
You guys ever do anything that makes you feel like you've just jumped in a time machine and taken yourself a few years back?
I spent the weekend crammed into a small karaoke room singing my heart out and drinking chivas and green tea.
It reminded me so much of my university days and how we used to drink too much and could only afford a few hours of this nonsense a week. lol.
Then we walked out and smelled the fresh poopy subarbian air and was glad that
