Van’s Restaurant Phnom Penh

One of the well known restaurant establishment in Phnom Penh is Van’s. This particular restaurant offers fine culinary french cuisines that are unparalleled to others in both technique and taste. The restaurant is situated on a corner street, across from the City Postal Office near the pagoda (Wat Phnom). A french colonial building houses this lovely restaurant. History says that this building was once the old Indochina Bank, making it a landmark of it own.

The  Forest Ocean located in Sen Monorom City of Mondulkiri Province.  It is called the forest ocean because of the trees growing on the mountain like the wave of sea. This is why people called it Samot Chheur or The Forest Ocean.

The Lost Room restaurant

On a random Wednesday night, three of my friends and I decided to check out the The Lost Room. After reading so many reviews about this place, we were itching to give it a try.

photo 1

Finding this restaurant can be tricky. The restaurant is located in small street behind the old Russian embassy, on Street 21. If you are traveling on Street 21 or Abdul Carime street, you will pass a pagoda called Wat Svay PoPe before you reach the restaurant, which has a small sign hanging with a key symbol and decorated with red light.

 photo 3

The restaurant offers both outdoor and indoor seatings.  The interior reminds me of an industrial warehouse with unfinished wall looks, but small in size. If I have to guess, there are not many tables in this cozy place, giving it a private and exclusive feel.

 photo 2

Not only does the restaurant offers basic meats like sea-bass, duck and pork, it also offers australian games such as Kangaroo and emu. The crab crab appetizer is very delectable and is highly recommended.   Our impression of the emu and sea-bass were unexpected in a good way.  The emu is perfectly sautéed and cooked, paired with a combination of steamed vegetables.  It is one meal that are hard to forget.  Our experience at The Lost Room is definitely a great one.

Refection on My Stay at Nature Lodge

For the long holiday, Water Festival in Cambodia, my friends and I went to visit Mondulkiri. We chose Nature Lodge for our accommodation in the Senmonorom area of Mondulkiri province.

Nature Lodge

Nature Lodge

Nature Lodge provided a relaxing retreat on 6 hectares of beautiful greenery  in Sen Monorom of Mondulkiri Province. Guests could enjoy a refreshing dip in the spring located just steps away from the lodge.

Nature Lodge Village provided cosy rooms and standalone bungalows with private terraces and comfortable lounge areas. Everyone enjoyed the view of the surrounding mountains. Some bungalows had 2 separate bedrooms and a large bathroom.

The resort was a 10-minute drive from Sen Monorom City’s Bus Station and 2 km from town centre. Phnom Penh International Airport was situated 370 km away.

My Point View When I first visited 

This resort has a so beautiful landscape as comparable to the landscapes in Europe or in America. If you have been to Europe, you would felt that place was similar.  During our visit, there were lots of guests came to stay.  Many visitors were from South Korea, China, Malaysia, America, Australia, and France.  Mostly they made their bookings with travel agencies and online hotel booking websites.

I stayed in a twin-bed room which had a great view of the mountain. We had a wonderful time staying there. At night, my friend was shocked because there was a frog on his bed, and this was not a bad experience. This frog made us laugh together.  Moreover, when I went to the restroom, there were many ants in there. This was a great experience in my life to stay and sleep with those bugs.

The Restaurant and Cafe served a wide variety of foods, ranging from Mediterranean, European and Cambodian dishes. The Bar and Lounge offered a selection of wines and local drinks.

The Nature Lodge gave me a great experience and it was worth the stay.   —  By Leny

Thanksgiving in Phnom Penh

This year, thanksgiving falls on Thursday November 28th, a weekday. Organizing a group dinner would have been cumbersome. We had decided to host the dinner on Saturday prior to the actual date instead.

20131127-070233.jpg

Finding a turkey in Phnom Penh wasn’t too difficult. Stores like Lucky, Bayon supermarkets carried brands like Butterball and Honeysuckle. We purchased a 13 lb turkey for a group of 12. Lucky supermarket also carried Stovetop stuffings but not cranberry (no frozen nor canned ones), so we had to improvise.

Thanksgiving wasn’t not so hyped up to be here in Phnom Penh as oppose to Christmas, which many restaurants, shops and hotels are more susceptible to celebrating it.  Only a handful of restaurants and hotels would serve Thanksgiving meal.  Digby’s, Hagar, Vespa, Sofitel are some of the fews that served Thanksgiving meal.  You could order a thanksgiving meal (including turkey, ham, stuffings and more) from Digby’s and Hagar.

Today Music in Phnom Penh

The popular radio and television stations in Phnom Penh are delivering mainstream music both local and international ones to our music lovers living in the city.  However we notice that Radio 97.5 MHz is the only popular station that plays American music.  So how do our Phnom Penh music listeners able to keep tab on the latest American music?

Thanks to social media and youtube, young Cambodians are now able to connect to western pop cultures easier than before.  Today online Khmer music websites are providing different outlets for our friends to be updated on the music scene, yet we still see that our local sites are still heavily focused on Khmer’s today pop music and not as much on American ones.

Discovering new artists is even more difficult as there isn’t any local website that has this focus. IRG wants to bridge this gap by developing a music website that delivers the latest music trends to the local music lovers.  During our development, we keep in mind that our site will need to be organized in a fashion that web viewers can easily navigate through the different languages.

banner IRG playSome of the more popular music labels in Cambodia are Raksmey Hang Meas (RHM), Town, M Production, Rock, Sunday, and Phleng record.  Only well known artists are signed to these records. Artists like Aok SokunKanha and Chhorn Sovannareach, are among the popular artists today.  Unlike American music where artist releases his or her own album, the music label production is the one who releases the album that contains songs from multiple artists.  Newly released albums are often found on Facebook and are not normally found in the record labels’ websites.   To ease web viewers finding new Khmer music, we set up a playlist for 50 Newest Songs and the left panel displaying only the newly released albums.

english music

On the IRG music website, we implement another playlist that plays only the hottest American songs.  Our content editors spend endless hours searching through music websites, in order to compile a list of newest American songs for our listeners.
