Novices by lamo
So my friend, Angeline, brought these to my attention and with the permission of the artist himself, I couldn’t help but to pass this along. —- Before anyone says anything, side note, this isn’t necessarily Khmer outfits, but more Thai-styled outfits with some of the headdresses.. However, they are kind of similar in some ways which is basically the concept of me sharing this Artist’s posts and also because I am a Disney fan and love creativity. :) lol Couldn’t post all the princesses within one post, so I picked 9 out of the bunch.
I mean look at it! How gorgeous! If given the chance, I would love to see some new Disney Princesses from Southeast Asia. *hint hint Disney, get on it!* haha

Break from studying to allow my inspiration to flow free.
Steampunk Naga/Neak. Cogs, wheels, pinwheels, and going into electronics. Far from done, but this is expected to be a time-consuming but fun project.
The Missing Picture (2013) - dir. Rithy Panh // Cambodia
Academy Award® nominee for Best Foreign Language Film, The Missing Picture explores filmmaker Rithy Panh’s quest to create the missing images during the period when the Khmer Rouge ruled over Cambodia between 1975 and 1979. Panh uses intricately detailed clay figurines intercut with archival footage he could find to relay what is indelibly recorded in his memory, he creates the missing pictures of what does not exist in photograph or film.
An education in vegetables, Russian Market
I love going to the local markets because I am always curious to have a look at a country’s produce. Singapore does not really have much local farming products.
My Khmer friend who used to study in Singapore brought me around the market, giving me a quick and dirty low-down of different vegetables used in the Khmers cuisine. From banana leaves, pumpkin flowers to lilly bulbs, lilly stems, and hycinthas, there’s way more parts of the vegetables Khmers creatively use in their cuisine as compared to the Chinese.
