From time to time not only Cambodian people, but foreigners as well who visit Sihanuk province, talks about the dominant of Chinese business people in this province. Same do I. I have the same feeling as expressed it in my previous article about Sihanuk province, especially when we look into the business landscape whereby most of the business activities occupied by the Chinese people. Particularly, in the tourism sector that including hotel, guest house as well as casinos and other restaurant and entertainment activities.
Having said this because I met a few western foreigners who is seeking for a place to live or making business in Kampot now and they said they were moved out from Sihanuk Ville where the live before and the place they used to rent 500 USD per month is increased to 1,000 USD or even 1,500 USD per month with the takeover by the Chinese business people. My question: is Chinese business people also move to Kampot after it is saturated in Sihanuk Ville? Read the rest of this entry »

Today the first day of the Khmer New Year 2017, the year of Roster. I visited my mother at my homeland. It has always a great feeling , not only me but I am sure other people the whole country of Cambodia, for taking this opportunity to meet their family and friends for catching up and sharing the good things together over the past year. So do I. I am glad to see my mother and other relatives but I also meet a wheel chair, whose kept a side of my house, where my grandma always sit on it for a few years before she left us. It reminded me of her smile, forgiveness and efforts when she was about 60s’ that she grew many kind of vegetables at home and she could sold it at the market in exchange with food to bring back home everyday. During that time (1980s’-1990s’) my grandma plays a major role of getting foods to feed our family members whereas my mom was working as a staff nurse in the hospital taking care of a four kids and my cousin. It was a hard time but leave a good memory and legacy.
I missed you grandma and may you rest in peace and may your soul be with us and taking care of us every minutes.
Happy Khmer New Year 2017 !!!

I was standing in front of an in patient building in one of the health centers in Kampot in 1998. This was a Chum Kiri Health Center where my project , at that time GTZ, supports many health services including malaria activities in this health center. Later on this building was renovated with the fund from GTZ. Thank to the RDP project at that time under the supervision from Dr. Philippe as Health Advisor and I was his assistant. It was a great memory to look back to the 18 years ago. Thanks Dr. Philippe for sharing the photo. Best of luck !! Kim Heang
