The Water Festival

Tomorrow is Bon Oum Tuk, or the Water Festival. When the moon is full in late November, Cambodians celebrate the royal ceremony in front of the palace, to offer thanks to the four great rivers in Phnom Penh. Many long wooden boats will be raced for the whole three days, the fireworks will be lit on the second night along with floating light boats.
I'll be home for the whole holiday. I have done my time at school and finished the last final yesterday, so the Water Festival is a treat. There are things to do, loose ends to tie, I'll do something worthy this time, like reading Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë (Man, literature' s been a plague for me these days!) , figuring out how to squeeze 2000 words out of my brain for my story writing, and well, just being a lazy cow at home. :)
May all the best things come to you. Happy Water Festival!

  2. The Bronte sisters were very talented in art and lit, but they were not too lucky either, all died young and unmarried, but in their work contains a lot of colorful moments and meanings of life.
