Color Leather Theater:
Was created in the Chaktomuk period between 1859-1904, with the support of Queen Sisowath Kosamak Neari Rath. A variety of different colors were used to paint the figures often decorated by phanhi tes (Angkor Stylized) ornaments on medium-sized cut leather. the pupets have no moving parts but are presented in one pane, similar to the large shadow puppet theater. artists perform in front a large black screen and wear costumes relevant to the story.

Ha it was a very nice and adventurous trip with IFL classmate. actually, my plan was for the whole class to gathering fun altogether during long holiday in May. unfortunately, most of them were busy. even though, we decided to choose one place for small small group to pay our fun after finishing piles of schoolwork.
plan was changed from big to small with 6 mates joined. the plan chose to Kirrirom National Park which located along Road Nº4 in Kompong Speu province. normally, it take approximately 2 hours to reach there. whereas, my group took over 3 hours arrived the park. they seem to be enjoy much of driving along the road buying fruits, foods, and soft drinks for our lunch time.
the behind cars drove over us and arrived the park since 11 am. only my mate’s class arrived late 12pm because of drop by to take pix along way ….
it was a nice and funny trip for 6 mates who still remind of a sweet time that have spent together.. everyone always smile when they are seeing the photos.. so i will share you some pixs….
fun fun time always ^* ^
On the 14th of February, they celebrate St Valentine’s Day. This day is understood as a day of romance and lovers, but few people know what the day really commemorates. Because the meaning is not clear, some people are confused and believe they need to have a partner for that day or even preferably have sex. Others, even adolescents and children, are pushed to give a flower to a friend without really understanding the meaning of that gesture. This can create confused feelings and sometimes even big disappointment when the young person does not receive a flower from another person.
So, it seems important to come back to the origin of this feast: St Valentine is indeed the saint connected with love and lovers but because he paid with he life for his defense of that love: In the 3rd century, the Roman Emperor Claudius noticed that his troops were losing courage during battles: soldiers did not want to leave their fiancées or their wives to go off to war. So the emperor decided to annual all marriages and engagements. For Valentine, a Christian priest, this offence to love was unacceptable. He started secretly marrying partners who loved each other. But defying the emperor could not last long. Valentine was arrested, sent to jail and questioned at length. He was so convincing that the emperor almost agreed with him… but war does not wait and Valentine was finally executed.
Therefore, St Valentine’s Day is a day for celebrating Love in its highest meaning: the love of people who want to commit to share life together and the love St Valentine who gave up his life for sake of Love.
