Sunday wake up early and workout alone, boring !!! I was looking for a group which suggests street workout or outdoor workout. By sudden, I found a group of young Cambodian who is passionated in sport!!!! They created this group and coaching people who want to build their strength and muscles; Is it a coincidence or is it a gift? The sessions are free of charges!!! Wooooooaaaaaauuuuhhhhhh, I love the idea !!! The programs are for everyone, it doesn’t reserve only for Cambodian or only Asian !!! I couldn’t ask for more.

Soon enough, I got a contact with Bruno Lafayen , one of the founders, to get some more information. He told me to join a session on Sunday at Parc Parilly, Venisseux.

I was so excited and joined them on Sunday morning at 10 am. Well, I met few others people who joined us for the workout. We were trained by Maxime Khum, another founder of the group.

I asked what we are going to do to day, then Maxime told me ” This gonna be so much fun, no worry. ” . I was like Hmmmmm,,, This sounds scary. LOL!!!!

I have to admit that the session was tough and intense, yet time flies!!! When he said “ok, we are done for today.” I was like “Huh,,, finish finish?!!!” Wow, as he said it was so much fun, I enjoyed my time with them. I can’t wait to do it again with them!!!! Oh and my muscles got sore later on, ouchhh…

Souvenir From Cambodia

I had amazing holiday in Cambodia which I spent most of my time with my family. I didn’t do so much things, yet those little things were so precious.

I couldn’t discribe the feeling being with my sisters, brothers and my parents. I had to come back home for lunch and dinner with them almost everyday. I just enjoyed foods and their company, it was just more than perfect for me. People asked me why didn’t you do other things rather than staying home? I just could not discribe the feeling how this home fill my emptiness. Anyway, I didn’t need to explain.

I also want to dedicate this post to few people who I had chance to be with and they had tried so hard to catch me up to get into their schedules. I am appreciated for their efforts. I felt the support and strong connection between us.

First of all Boramy, my cousin, she did lots of things for me to make me discovered the Phnom Penh nowaday. Without her, I might couldn’t live another luxurious Cambodian lifestyle again. She created appotunity for me to meet another two amazing people, Nana and Piseth.

Second Piseth, a young Cambodian guy, he had spent so much time to drive me to Kompot and took us to different places to see different views. What was more, he reminded me to the quality of Cambodian men again, elegant, sweet, responsible, funny, respectful, generouse. Ps- old fashion Cambodian men, the precious!!! I was almost forgot these good qualities of them. Only the luckiest woman will have him.

Third Nana, a young lady of my age, the owner of Iora Cambodia. She is amazing, simple, funny!! I like the way she speak so gentle with her sweet voice. She has good taste in fashion which is easy to go shopping with and also get advices when you do shopping in her places. Really intelligent and strong woman. I would never thought she was an easy going like this.

Forth my Tepy, a friend from high school, We laughed at our crazy things; it looked like we didn’t grow up yet. 14 years old again.

Last but not least, Kimleang, my best friend. We still enjoy spending time to do same things like 17 years ago. Time flies with her.

Now I am in Lyon. I need to get back to my solitaire life. I miss them so much…

Pierre Orsi

Last night I was invited to a French gastronomy restaurant, Pierre Orsi. I was surprised with the Decor from the outside, I felt like Christmas, party time. As we walked in to the restaurant, a guy in old fashion costume opened the door for you. Then we were welcomed by well-mannered staffs and they guided us to our table. I was so in love with the decor inside, elegant and effortless. Ps-i also in love with their toilet, omg!! What I admired the most was I felt like home, family dinner. And at the end of the dinner we got a visit from Mr. Orsi, the Chef!!!!

Talking about menu, we didn’t have to take one hour to think what we are going to chose because they made their menu so simple yet what they suggested were sublime, Mmmmm, I was so spoiled.

Salmon tartare was served while we were choosing our dishes… That was delicious.

 

I am amazed the foods were presented beautifully and so simple, clean. I know there were lots of work behind those simple dishes. By the way the taste were magical; lots of flavors. Gosh!!! I really appreciated my meals.

Here are some pictures I got from my last night dinner.

 

 

 

Veggies bourguignon

Beef bourguignon is one of French traditional dishes. It needs time to marinate meat and slow cook. I could say it’s so delicious. By the way, Veggies bourguignon is quite delicious as well, I have to admit that. The ingredients are the same as beef bourguignon but you replace meat with veggies. In my recipes I used ancien vegetables… I actually made vegetable in the oven, I had so much left over so I turned it into viggies bourguignon. I just added some red wine and laurel, salt, sugar and black pepper then some cooking time.

Here we need

1 parsnip

2 carrots

3 potatoes

half of pumpkin

1 rutabaga

1 celery rave

garlic, shallots, olive oil

Bourgogne red wine

seasoning

2tbp of wheat flour

sugar ( I used it to adjust the taste of wine )

salt, black pepper

thyme , laurel, 2 cloves

How to make it

  1. Pre heat the oven to maxi for 15 mins
  2. I cut my veggies in pieces added salt, black pepper, olive oil, garlic, shallots, thyme, laurel all in one then seasoning as your taste and put in 30 minutes in the oven. ( you can enjoy your veggies like that and add some balsamique venegar or you can continue to the step 3 )

     

  3. Transfer the veggies in a hot pan, stir with some olive oil then add 1 or 2 tbp of wheat flour ( corn flour). Keep stirring to cook flour with veggies.
  4. then added red wine, keep stirring. You can add some veggie broth if you have or water. keep stirring about 5 mins then lower the heat to the lowest.
  5. now you can add some sugar , then cover the pan and let it cook for 20 mins. Ps- keep your eyes on it cuz it can burn so keep stirring from time to time. you can cook longer if you think it’s necessary.

Now here you have it mmmmm

The retired of my negative emotion

Other day while having dinner with my daughter, she talked to me about a new film of Will Smith, Collateral Beauty. I watched the trailer, it was kind of make sense. We write lettres to the Univers but never to our emotions. Well, what came up in my head this morning when I woke up was I wanted to let my negative emotions go on their retirements. Wow, this would be amazing that we could free ourselves from the bad shadows. We’ve been living inside our body, sometimes we lived with sadness, anger, hate, disappointed, guilt etc… To talk about it becomes so difficult, because of the fear of the outside environments’ reflexion. Therefore, the negative emotions grow older, heavier, bigger day by day interior until one day we might feel lost, Lost in ourselves. The same stories keep repeating, strange questions keep coming to ourselves ” why me? ” ” what have I done wrong? ” ” no, not again!”.

Going to the therapist is the best way, at the same times, therapists just the people who tell you where is the key to get out. We are our master, we master our own destiny.

So I will start writing a letter each day to my emotions, so that they could leave on their retirement happily ;-).

I would like to see how will it work for me, it’s my first experiment to myself.
