Fine Khmer Wines

Banan Red Wine

@ Beautiful Battambang By Tharum Bun When Chan Thay Chhoeuay began growing grapes a decade ago in a small town twenty minutes drive from Battambang province town, she didn’t expect the success she encounter today. Named after a mountain close to her three-hectare farm, Phnom Banan vineyard she setup in 2004 has been listed in the must-see section in most travel information. In Bot Sala village, people next door thought Chan Thay Chhoeuay and her husband Leng Chan Thol, both 44, were crazy when they ventured into this wine-making business. But the farmers-turned entrepreneurs were not discouraged by people’s negative comments at all. In a province much known for exporting rice and finest oranges, beautiful Battambang in the northwest of Cambodia, a tropical country in Southeast Asia, has much more to offer to domestic visitors and enthusiastic travelers. A visit to the province’s only vineyard for a bottle or two as a gift back home has become a new excitement for those who are their way to 10th-century Wat Banan, a mountainous Angkor ruin popular at weekends with local families out on picnics. The vine were first sourced from neighboring Thailand, and followed by some from France. Her locally-made wines have been certified by Ministry of Industry since March 2005. Of more than 4,500 plants growing across her farm, which include varietals like Black Queen, Shiraz and Kyoho, have been

proven as a success story in a nation of 14 million people who prefer rice wine. The family owned business also tried making a white wine from Chenin Blanc grapes but failed as the vines couldn’t sustain hot and humid weather. While the unique vineyard serves as an attractive point for tourists looking for wine tasting, the lady owner also has non-alcoholic sweet grape juice on sale. Chan Thay Chhoeuay, who rarely drinks wine, first thought of only planting grapes, which is rare in Cambodia, but possible in countries like Vietnam and Thailand. “At least there are 10 to 100 foreign tourists visit our vineyard every day, to see our plantation and taste our wine... They usually bring back home bottle of wines with excitement,” said Chan Thay Chhoeuay. Priced at $6 to $15 a bottle, the wines are on sale in Cambodia’s largest capital city, Phnom Penh, and Siem Reap, the top tourist spot and home to Angkor Wat. Another best seller is Banan Brandy. As the middle-aged couple pioneered in producing grape wine in an industry has long been dominated by Western imports, words spread across quickly that also attracted attention of none other than Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen, and was followed by the provincial governor in granting tax exemption for 5 years to help the business to take off.

Noodles are an essential ingredient and staple in Chinese cuisine. There is a great variety of Chinese noodles, which vary according to their region of production, ingredients, shape or width, and manner of preparation. They are an important part of most regional cuisines within China, as well as in Taiwan, Singapore, and other Southeast Asian nations with sizable overseas Chinese populations. Chinese-style noodles have also entered the native cuisines of neighboring East Asian countries such as Korea and Japan (dangmyeon and ramen, for example, are both of Chinese origin), as well as Southeast Asian countries such as Vietnam, the Philippines, Thailand, and Cambodia.

Noodle House

Chinese noodles are generally made from either wheat flour, rice flour, or mung bean starch, with wheat noodles being more commonly produced and consumed in northern China and rice noodles being more typical of southern China. Egg, lye, cereal may also be added to noodles made from wheat flour in order to give the noodles a different colour or flavor.

Arrowroot or tapioca starch are sometimes added to the flour mixture in low quantities to change the texture and tenderness of the noodles’ strands. The dough for noodles made from wheat flour is typically made from wheat flour, salt, and water, with the addition of eggs or lye depending on the desired texture and taste of the noodles.

Thursday - Frieday May 14 - 15 19:00 Dansez ! Roam ! Theater Chenla Belle Chumvan Sodhachivy will present her latest creation, in which she takes on the task of examining the ineluctable emotion felt by everyone: the feeling of being in love. Accompanied by six dancers and four musicians, she expresses in movement love, joy, suffering, anguish, all the various emotions that the Other can awaken in us. During the first part of the evening, “4 D” from Epic Arts Association will present the remarkable work of handicapped dancers, a hymn to respect, sharing, and support, words that are the foundation of their lives and of the creative process of their choreography.

Thursday 20 May Fragile Sopheap Pich 19:00 CCF A graduate of the University of Massachusetts, where he studied painting, and also f the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Sopheap Pich returned to Cambodia in 2002. After exhibiting his painting in numerous places, he decided in 2005 to devote himself solely to the creation of sculpture in rattan, an activity that allows him to take over a space and explore new meanings: the relationship between interior and exterior, fragility, weightlessness. In the last few years he has created new pieces for two exhibitions, in Australia at the Asia-Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, and in the United States at Tyler Rollins Fine Art. He will show a selection of his work from his beginning to today and will also exhibite his last work : a reflexion on the Khmer alphabet which is a source of debate and discussion. Thursday 27 May Currency and Sovereignty Jean Daniel Gardère 19:00 Cinema of CCF Former departmental adviser for economic affairs in Washington and director general of the French Foreigne Trade Board, Jean-Daniel Gardère recently published a book titled “Currency and Sovereignty.” In this lecture, he will outline the history of a country in pursuit of a currency that would be uniquely its own, and, as such, would serve as an instrument of autonomy in other domains.

Wednesday June 16 19:00 Fête de la Musique CCF This year, we offer you music by the Parisian group “Java” for the “Fête de la Musique” celebration. This band is difficult to label: its style subtly mixes a rap beat with the sounds of accordion bands, and adds a few funky rhythms. After five years of absence, “Java” came back onstage in 2009 with a third album titled “Maudits Francais.” Effective lyrics, solid instrumentation, and new songs to discover that promise to make you laugh and dance! In first part the group Khmarang, created during the last PhotoPhnomPenh, will invite us in a journey between Cambodian and western rhythms. Thursday June 17 19:00 Trash Fix Exhibition Hall Meas Sokhorn One morning, Meas Sokhorn has an unusual coffee-drinking experience. Lulled by the brouhaha of the city, he is suddenly startled by a cloud of dust that blows into his eyes. He turns around to see a mountain of garbage rising before him. And with the debris, bad odors, floating bacteria. Does all this exist, or not? Finally, between the mountain of garbage and the mountain of routine, which is the highest?

BATTAMBANG that the entrance to the caves is so small you need to wriggle through on your belly.

Wat Banan

Colonial buildings

Just over 20km to the south of Battambang, Phnom Banan is the best kept of the remaining Khmer ruins in the area, though again, when compared to Angkor Wat it isn’t so impressive. Dating back to the 11th century, Phnom Banan has also been heavily looted but it remains mostly upright. What is impressive from here are the superb views of the surrounds in all directions. A large field gun kept at the site once has now been removed. It’s a rather steep climb from ground level up to the ruins. Luckily at the top a few industrious drink sellers emerge, who will also be happy to show you around the temple and then the caves below on the left (when looking at the ruins from the stairs). These are well worth exploring, though note the cave entrance is almost at the base of the hill, so be sure you are finished with the ruins before you agree to go down. Also note if it is a slow day -- very common here -- all the children here will offer to come with you, but they will all expect something for coming along. Be warned

These fine structures are dotted about the town and along the river, of which the grand French Era governor’s house is the most famous.

bludgeoned or had their throats cut. Children hang around the base of the temple and will walk up with you and act as your guides, some of them speak very good English. They will expect some money in return for showing you around. According to our guides, there was one cave for women, one for men and one for children, though other sources differ in this regard. There are two ways to the summit, one by stairs, the other by a sweeping trail with a far easier incline that runs around the hillock to the summit. Phnom Sampeau is best visited in early morning or late afternoon when the light and the spectacular views are at their best. We’ve encountered some problems with motodops who have expressed an unwillingness to drive out to Phnom Sampeau, claiming that it is a bad place that tourists shouldn’t see. If you want to visit here, don’t feel uncomfortable about insisting you visit. The road out is partially sealed. Ask your motodop to take the main road out, but come back via one of the many back dirt-routes that meander through the paddies. In the late afternoon light, it is beautiful.

Ek Phnom

Phnom Sampeu This hilltop temple on the road to Snong and Pailin is one of the main locations of Battambang’s “Killing Fields”, with a large cave where victims were thrown into the caves either to their death or after being

Dates back to the 11th century and is one of the most-visited attractions around Battambang. If you’ve already seen Angkor Wat you’ll probably find it to be a bit of a disappointment, but if you haven’t been there yet, it’s a fine taster. On weekdays, you’re likely to have the entire place to yourself, while on weekends, it is a popular excursion for those from Battambang. The ruins have been heavily looted and look to have partially been collapsed on purpose to get at some sections of it. Out the front of the ruins is a new temple known for its murals. Ek Phnom is best reached from Battambang by motodop along the river road and takes around 45 minutes, passing through some beautiful scenery.

BATTAMBANG ATTRACTIONS


Some of the finest imported beer in Hourganden

Cambodia

I cracked opened the beer, and pulled the mug out that came with it.  Well, step one on the bottle was to rinse the glass.  So I did.  Then, I followed step two, which was to only pour half the beer into the glass.  Then with the remaining half, I was to swirl it around, as to mix it up good in the bottle.  I poured the rest, and it was as if I was pouring a beer in a beer commercial.  The colour was perfect, and the head foamed up just enough to still take a first sip. The beer no longer looked gross in my glass, but delicious!  I took a sip, and man, the flavor is amazing!  I highly recommend this beer to anyone who enjoys the flavor of beer. Where is get it: CHOW restaurant by the riverside

Leffe We’ll start with what should be the lightest of the Leffe family, although still a respectable 6.2% ABV, as you can see Leffe Blond came out considerably paler than I remembered, but make no mistake, despite its pale amber coloration, this is a full bodied ale. It has a full mouth feel, and a substantial head that lasted well down the glass, leaving a distinctive lacing down the glass. The flavor is well rounded, slightly sweet, slightly spicy, but with all these brews there is something that is distinctively ‘Belgian’.  Okay so not quite trappist, but once you’ve tasted a Belgian beer, you’ll spot that flavor whenever you are fortunate enough to encounter it. There are hints of vanilla and toffee in this flavor, it’s not too heavy, in fact, I was pleased to note that I had a large (75cl) bottle of Blond on my shelf for the weekend.? Where to get it: Bar along the riverside / also Red piano at Siem Reap.

SOL Sol is clean, crisp, no aftertaste, simply a fantastic beer Sol beer is the premier Mexican beer. It tastes amazing with a tiny sliver of lime perfectly slotted into the neck of the bottle. It is great ice cold straight out of the fridge. Mine was served in O’Neills and was the perfect temperature. The design on the bottle is retro classic and features a sun setting over the Mexican hills. It is 4.5% alcohol so not too strong. The flavor is sublime and slips down the throat easily making it a perfect tipple at bbq’s and summer parties. I really recommend buying Sol beer. Get loads of limes and away you go. Just make sure you have tacos to go with them. Even though they are shipped from Norway I love them. Where to get it: Bar along the riverside / also at Riverhouse club/Bar

Kirin Japanese restaurant, and it’s hard to resist a bottle of Japanese lager... This beer pours a clear medium yellow golden colour, with three fingers of foamy white head, which leaves lots of chunky white lace around the tall Kirin glass. It smells of sweet white rice, a bit sour, and weedy, mildly skunky hops. The taste is more gluttonous white rice grain, and floral, weedy hops. The carbonation is on the low side, the body a lightest medium weight, smooth, but a bit cloying, and it finishes fairly clean, with an actual bit of zinginess. Where to get it: most of Japanese restaurant in town.

Culture

Royal Ploughing Ceremony The Royal Ploughing Ceremony is an ancient royal rite held in Cambodia to mark the traditional beginning of the rice-growing season. In the Khmer language, it is called “Preah Reach Pithi Chrot Preah Neangkol” (Wan Phra Ratcha Phithi Phuetcha Monkhon Lae Charot Phra Nangkhan Raek Na Khwan; also observed as Farmer’s Day.) In 2010, the ceremony will held on May 2 in Cambodia. The date is usually in May, but varies as it is determined by Hora (astrology). In the ceremony, two sacred oxen are hitched to a wooden plough and they plough a furrow in some ceremonial ground, while rice seed is sown by court Brahmins. After the ploughing, the oxen are offered plates of food, including rice, corn, green beans, sesame, fresh-cut grass, water and rice whisky. Depending on what the oxen eat, court soothsayers make a prediction on whether the coming growing season will be bountiful or not. The ceremony is rooted in Brahman belief, and is held to ensure a good harvest. According to the Tourism Cambodia website, last year the sacred animals ate mainly rice, corn and beans, while largely ignoring the contents of the other trays. This was taken to mean that farmers would see a moderate yield in the rice harvest but enjoy a strong output in their secondary crops, especially corn and beans. In Cambodia, the ceremony is typically presided over by the monarch, or an appointee. Sometimes the monarch himself has taken part in the ceremony and actually guided the plough behind the oxen.


Cambodia is not a planned country but it promises to give you the excitement of adventurous travel, the roads are rugged and almost nothing is for certain, but when you finally come into this country you will surely be enchanted by the warmth of the smiles being showered on you. It is not for nothing that Cambodia has been called the country of smiles! In this country of smiles, you will have to keep certain things in mind when you are travelling to ensure that you do not face any problem. Cambodia Do’s and Don’t will provide all the information you need to know about the Etiquette in Cambodia and Code of Conduct in Cambodia. The country has been trying to evolve out of a shattering past of war and violence, which is the main reason behind the sensitiveness of the people about their religious beliefs and social customs. What better way to pay respect to the traditions of the people than to be aware of Do’s and Don’t in Cambodia and follow them.

Don’t Don’t use your feet to point at someone. Feet are con- sidered the lowest form of the body. Don’t walk over a person’s feet. Don’t start to eat when you are a guest at the dinner table before your host has taken a bite. Don’t burp while eating.

In Cambodia

Do & Don’t Do’s Do respect Cambodian elders Do bow a little when you walk between two Cambodians talking Do greet your guest by a drink or place fruit or snacks for them if they are coming over to your home.

Don’t purchase historical artifacts in Cambodia.

Do sit knees bent and legs to the side ( for women ). Do ask for permission before taking photos of others.

Don’t take home pieces of stone from the temples and tourist sites no matter how small and undecorated they are.

Do bargain when buying things. Bargaining can be an enjoyable experience in interacting with the locals.

Don’t touch someone on the head. Head is considered holy.

Do take off hat and shoes before entering a Khmer home and pagodas.

Don’t give children vendors in the temples candies if you do not intend to buy their products.

Do “ sompeah ” when you speak or listen to the monks.

Don’t be foul-mouthed in middle of lake or jungle. It is considered bad omen.

Do take off your hat, or drive bicycle or mo- torcycle slowly when you get into Temple or pagoda.

Don’t pick your teeth while eating.

Don’t involve in narcotic drug consumption and sexual exploitation of children. Don’t hug and kiss in public. Don’t be critical of the conditions Don’t converse about anything related to politics Don’t take photographs of military sights

The best way to make your travel to Cambodia enjoyable is to shed off all remains of superiority from your behaviour and think like them. It is only when you show respect that you earn respect from others. This is the most important thing you need to know when you are travelling to any part of the world. Make your travel to Cambodia special by following the Cambodia Do’s and Don’t.

Gin & It This simple cocktail is standard woman cocktail as specify many authors. Equal parts of gin and sweet vermouth (It) and some interesting for garnish. My favourite Salvatore “Maestro� Calabrese garnish own Gin & It with a maraschino cherry and orange peel. I think is it optimal choice for this cocktail Sweet vermouth 35 ml Gin 35 ml Stir. Cocktail glass. Garnish with a red maraschino cherry and orange peel. The Gin & It Cocktail has good-balanced sweet and dry herbal taste. It is good evening cocktail and not for woman only. Some mixologist (like Dale DeGroff ) reccomend to add some drops of Angostura bitter in the Gin & It Cocktail. Gin & It (Dale DeGroff ) 35 ml sweet vermouth 35 ml gin 1 dash Angostura bitter Stir. Cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange peel.

This version has more complex palate with wide herbal bitterness of Angostura. It is good cocktail for any romantic evening.

Knic

This cocktail has very interesting composition - rum and raspberry syrup. The classic version of this cocktail specifies five main ingredients - raspberry syrup (Hogg and Jackson, but Cocktail DB specified grenadine), lime or lemon juice, orange juice, curacao liqueur and rum. There at Cocktail DB and Jackson prescribed light rum, but Hogg and DeGroff - dark. I use one of my gold (actually aged) rum Bacardi Reserva. Gold rum 60 ml Raspberry syrup (berry grenadine) 8 ml Fresh lemon juice 8 ml Orange juice 8 ml Orange curacao 8 ml Some pineapple chunks Muddle the pineapple spear with juices. Add the rest of ingredients and shake. Serve in a cocktail glass. The Knickerbocker Special Cocktail has very interesting taste. It has rich berry-fruit sweet-and-sour taste with bright rum palate. The Bacardi Reserva Rum work extremely well in this cocktail. It is amazing cocktail.

10 PLACES T H AT M A D E T H E D E C A D E We look back at the destinations and events that shaped the noughties KARAKOW, POLAND

WORLD TRADE CENTER, NEW YORK

2004

Twenty years ago, krakow was still a specialist holiday destination as far as British visitors were concerned. Today, its John Paul II international receives flights from 11 UK airports. The demand is fuelled by two-way traffic: Britons discovering more of the relatively unfamiliar eastern half of the continent, and Poles living and working in the UK. The facilitating factor was the accession on 1 May 2004 of Poland to the Eruopean Union - by 2008, the Poland-born population of Britain stood at nearly half a millon. Contrary to popular myth, not all of the new arrivals were plumbers. This popluation has fluctuated and will probably continue to do so but, in the meantime, Brits already acquainted with Krakow can explore Polish cities with even more unfathomable names, such as Wroclaw (pronounced ‘vrot-swahf’), or Bydgoszcz (oh, never mide).

2001 BIRD’S NEST STADIUM, BEIJING

2008

At 8pm on 8 Auguest 2008, a lucky day in Chinese numerology, the Olympic Games opened to the sound of 2,008 drummers beating a countdown inside Beijing’s National Stadium - dubbed the Bied’s Nest after its intricate design. At least two bilion people watched the ceremony, which came after a worldwide Olympic torch relay that was accomanied by noisy protests in many countries. the games took place in a decade when China’s GDP growth reached into the double digits, and cities such as Shanghai and Shenzhen witnessed a commercial and construction boom. China is the only economy predicted to overtake the US by 2050

The image of skyscrapers in flames against the Manhattan skyline on the morning of 11 September 2001 seems just as shocking now, more then eight years after the event, as it did then. the immediate consequences were new anti-terrorist measures, stock-market panics and two months later, the fall of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan. At the end of decade, soldiers from the US, Britain and at least 30 other countries are still in Afghanistan, while Iraq, which the US invaded in 2003, entered and effective civil war. While Obama deals with the continuing consequences of the September 11 attacks, a memorial is being buit at the site of the fallen twin towers. The names of the victims (nearly 3,000 peropke) will be inscribed around two reflecting pool marking where the towers stood.

CALIFORNIA

2004

As the decade ends, the Golden State is feeling distinctly impecunious, as its beefy Austrian/US governor tries to plug a budget deficit of $16bn. But the state is home to nearly all the big internet names of the past decade. Based at the ‘Googleplex’ in Santa Clara County, Google’s deceptively simple homepage is the most visited site on the net and in 2004 it raised $1.67 billion when it floated. its neighbours include Apple, eBay, Facebook and Yahoo!, While YouTube, MySpace, Twitter and Wikipedia are also in the state.

CERN, NEAR GENEVA

2008

Until this decade, the only peculiarity of the small French town of Ferney-Voltaire was the second half of its name, commemorating the philosopher who once lived there. But underneath this one-time centre of radical thought, as new age of enlightenmnet may sub-atomic pericles together in the hope of answering the most fundamental questions about the architecture of the universe. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the project of the European Organisation for Nuclear Research. In this circular tunnel, 17 miles in circumference, protons manage 11,000 laps a scond, travelling at 99.9997828 per cent of the speed of light. The project may be the most ambitious scientific experiment ever undertaken, with the possibility - if you belive the tabloid headlines - that it might annihilate the universe in the process. The guys with the physics degrees deny there claims in the most Anglo-Saxon of terms. And if you’re asking what applocations this science is likely to have in your life, just remember that a previous project of theirs produced a spin-off called the World Wide Web.

BOROUGH MARKET

2000

Britain’s 30-year effort to lose its reputation as the worst place to eat in Europe outside the former Soviet bloc has almost been achieved. The momentum grew in the 1990s as more ‘exotic’ restaurant choices appeared on UK high streets, preparing us for a decade of celeb chefs, locally sourced ingredients, campaigns to improve school food and a revival of classic British cooking. London’s Boroug Market is a fitting symbol of our changing attitude. During the 1980s and 1990s, the historic food market was losing money. Today, it is bursting with people buying British fruit ‘n’ veg, Spanish meats, Italian olivers, Mexican chocolate and Punjabi sweets.

CARTERET ISLADNS PAPUA NEW GUINEEA

2009

On a Pacific atoll 53 miles northeast of the Papua New Guinean island of Bougainville, increasing numbers of storm surges and king tides have poisoned the water supply and staple crops of the 2,500 inhabitants. The highest point on the Carteret Island is 1.5m - less than the height of an average adult. although geological processes may be causing the island to sink, rising sea levels have been blamed for forcing may of the islanders to evacuate to Bougainville in 2009. This could be the first instance of a mass relocation of people as a result of man-made climate change.

MALI

2006

JAPAN

2007

In the mid-1990s, a common reaction to sushi in Britain went something like: ‘Raw fish? W on’t that make you ill?’ Today, you can pick up boxes of fish, vinegary rice, seaweed and pickled ginger in most major supermarkets. And Japanese culinary influence is apparent beyond traditional Japanese restaurants too, as upscale menus feature ingredients like wasabi and yuzu. In 2007, Michelin brought out its first guide to Tokyo, which deposed Paris as the city with the most stars to its name. A guide to Kyoto and Osaka followed in October 2009. As with Tokyo, it doesn’t list restaurants with no stars - there isn’t room.

TEHRAN

2002

In 2002, Iran became a founder member of the Axis of Evil, as defined by the then US president George W Bush, at a time when a reform-inclined Iranian president was being checked by religious conservatives. The mercury rose sharply after Mahmoud Ahmadinejad became president in 2005 and made comments that were widely interpreted as being a call for the destruction of Israel. At the UN Security Ciuncil, the US, Britain and France pushed for sanctions over fears that Iran was trying to build nuclear weapons, but Russia and China were mostly opposed to these moves. In 2009, following disputedelections in which Ahmadinejad was declared the victor, protestors came onto the streets of Tehran and used sites like Twitter and Facebook to keep their movement alive.

For centuries, Mali was known in Europe for its remoteness - a place of legendary riches at the end of the caravan train across the Sahara from the Mediterranean to Timbuktu. Today, its greatest export is music - recognised worldwide in awards like the Grammy won by the late Ali Farka Toure in 2006. Other successful artists in the last decade include Salif Keita, Tinariwen, Mory Kante, Oumou Sangare abd Amadou et Marian (right). How has a landlocked country of just 13 million people on the edge of the desert built such a musical reputation? It could be in the blood - Mali has an ancient caste of hereditary musicians and poets called griots. Toumani Diabate, for example, is the 71st generation player of the 21-string kora harp in his family.

THE FINAL WORD A prince from Palembang was shipwrecked and washed ashore to an island. There he saw a creature which he believed was a lion. So he named the island “Singa Pura” (in Tamil language Singa puram) which means “Lion City” in Malay, from which the name Singapore was derived.

KARVT wooden MacBook skins -- because sometimes aluminum just isn’t enough

JVC intros HD Everio GZ-HM1 video camera

64GB Zune HD launching April 12th for $350, current models reduced $20

Is the Apple logo on your MacBook not brash enough for everyone in the coffee shop to see? Is that streamlined aluminum appearance too Pro for you? Time to enter the newly opened KARVT online store, where unabashed Apple fans can finally add the sophistication of “100% real authentic wood” to their beloved machines. Most popular tastes can be accommodated, with different shades of cherry, bamboo, pine, and walnut on offer, and there’s even an artists’ section where some design flair is added to your timberrific purchase. The skins will fit on any recent Apple laptops, and prices are $35 for the wood grain or $50 for the artsy ones, with deliveries starting on May 1. Bargain or what?

JVC’s already rolled out a handful of new Everio camcorders this year, and it’s just now refreshed the top of the line with its new HD Everio GZ-HM1 video camera. This one will naturally give you full 1080p video recording (along with 10-megapixel still images), and you’ll get some reasonably high-end features all around, including a Konica Minolta lens with a 10x optical zoom, optical image stabilization, 64GB of internal storage, an SDHC card slot for further expansion, a mic input and headphone output, and a full range of manual controls. Head on past the break for a video overview courtesy of JVC, and look for the camera itself to be availability immediately for $1,199.95.

Let’s just be nice and feign surprise, okay? Good. With that out of the way, Microsoft has announced a 64GB version of Zune HD, due out April 12th via the Zune online store (and later via other retailers) with a handful of color options and a strapping $349.99 price tag. Not to be outdone, the 16GB and 32GB will each receive a $20 cut on the MSRP, to $200 and $270, respectively -- whatever Amazon and Newegg slash beyond that is up to them. It seems “as soon as possible” is the motto for when the price drop is taking place, so if your favorite online / brick-and-mortar retailer isn’t yet honoring the extra Andrew Jackson in your pocket, have patience. So now we’re left with a v4.5 firmware release date as the remaining piece in this puzzle, but Microsoft promises to solve that riddle wrapped in an enigma “in the coming days.”

Apple sells 1,000,000 iPads in revolution’s first month

Cameras With Sony’s bedazzling DSCW350D camera, the W is for Woman

iPhone OS 4 unveiled, adds multitasking, shipping this summer

CUPERTINO, California-May 3, 2010-Apple today announced that it sold its one millionth iPad™ on Friday, just 28 days after its introduction on April 3. iPad users have already downloaded over 12 million apps from the App Store and over 1.5 million ebooks from the new iBookstore. “One million iPads in 28 days-that’s less than half of the 74 days it took to achieve this milestone with iPhone,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “Demand continues to exceed supply and we’re working hard to get this magical product into the hands of even more customers.” iPad allows users to connect with their apps and content in a more intimate, intuitive and fun way than ever before. Users can browse the web, read and send email, enjoy and share photos, watch HD videos, listen to music, play games, read ebooks and much more, all using iPad’s revolutionary Multi-Touch™ user interface. iPad is 0.5 inches thin and weighs just 1.5 pounds-thinner and lighter than any laptop or netbook-and delivers up to 10 hours of battery life.

Sometimes you tire of the rat race, the feature fight, the megapixel war. When that happens this is the result: the DSC-W350D, a 14-megapixel, 4x (optically stabilized) zoom camera set to shatter the compact shooter glass ceiling. The pink model has a swirly flower print and a cute beveled edge around the lens and, though the pearly white looks a bit more sophisticated, embedded rhinestones ensure that neither gets taken too seriously. Both offer 720p recording and each has an optional matching case, meaning this is one perfect accessory that can itself be accessorized.

Just a bit more than a year after we first laid eyes on iPhone OS 3.0, Apple is back with the latest big revision of the OS that powers the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. iPhone OS 4 is shipping this summer (iPad in the fall), and the developer preview will be out today. iPhone 3GS and newgen iPod touch will get all the features, but some features won’t make it to the iPhone 3G, original iPhone, and older iPod touches. The biggest new feature is multitasking, which Apple says is going to be the “best” implementation in the smartphone space, though it’s obviously not the first. App switching is activated by double tapping the home button, which pulls up a “dock” of currently running apps, and Apple claims it can do this without hurting battery life or performance for the front app. Unfortunately, this multitasking won’t be available for devices older than the 3GS and new iPod touch. Multitasking is just one of seven different new “tentpole” features, including Game Center, enhanced Mail, and more...

Lady GOLFER MI HYEON AN

The Korean lady bring love of golf to Cambodia

When Mi Hyeon An arrived Phnom Penh three years ago, the South Korean golf professional wants to do more than just to settle down and enjoy Cambodia’s tropical weather. An has trained a number of government officials to learn playing golf. The member of Professional Teaching Association also has a privilege to play with some senior political leaders and businesspeople. An can talk endlessly about her passion. She even dares to declare the world in sport to the reality of life. “In real life, there are judges. But on the golf pitch, there is no single judge; there are only players and you have to be who you’re. And more importantly, you have to be on your own,” explained the passionate golfer, whose news columns about importance of playing golf been published in Koh Santepheap, a Khmer-language daily newspaper. She added that “golfers are adaptable to weather as a matter of life.” It’s not surprising, however, her family members and her husband play golf. “My husband is crazy with golf.

He’s even better than me,” told An. She added that “in South Korea, if you want to do business, you have to know how to play golf. It’s not only just a game, but you’ve got about five hours of chance for a friendly talk with your business partners. And it’s where your business deal can take place. “ In 2008, An, who became a golf professional at the age of 20, started Family Golf, a golf club at Parkway Center on Mao Tse Tung Boulevard, in hope of spreading the love of the sport among Phnom Penh residents. Despite many of her guests are native Koreans, An will open another larger golf club at Grand Phnom Penh in a June this year to renew her prospect of having more Cambodians to learn playing golf. But An doesn’t want to stop here. Her next thing to achieve is to setup Cambodian Professional Golf Association (CPGA). “Playing golf is to fight with myself,” professional golfer An said in an interview last week at Family Golf, where a dozen of Koreans were hitting one ball after another against the wall.

BY SREYLEAK BUN

How would you describe your life in Singarpore so far? It was so hard to live where I never belong when I first moved to Singapore. I had faced many problems that I never expect. I had arrived 2 days before the school started. I had to catch everything such as how to take bus, subway and get lost in 1st time. I had to learnt most of thing in short time. There was no friend or relative, started from school life and everything. People seem look down when they heard I am from Cambodia. In 1st term at school (Raffles Design Institute) I joined the local company’s competition for new layout of shopping mall with other two classmates. We won 3rd prize. After few months I got used with life over here. I love the multiply culture also the food. I have more friends. There was only one Khmer at Interior Design department. Mostly I have spoken English unless I meet any Khmer. I love to explore new places to get to know them such as shopping mall, Park, new buildings or anything new in Singapore, I’d love to try. I love the Cinema in here, I watch lots of movies at weekend. Being at arts school I got more chances to see those artist, photographers. I have grown up my photography skill in here. I started from shooting landscape photography seriously in early 2008 and also involve with portrait and fashion photography in 2009. By end of 2009 I got a friend who become my photography lecturer later, Dara Lork who live in USA. He has guided me the

correct way to take photo, give comment and also my consultant for photography. During November, 2009. I have been shot in film my chance. I got contacted from Cambodian friend at other school. She needed any Cambodian who could help in acting. There was a group of Final year student from Film school, New York University. They wanted to make a short film about Cambodia and they need actor or actress who speak Khmer. I denied at 1st as I never have such as an experience. I went to see the director and I was taken photo. I went for Audio later on and met other Cambodian. The teamwork got no time to train any new actor or actress they decided to hire other 2 actresses from TV. They kept only me who is Cambodian. I have been shot for 3 days in Singapore. I was a volunteer actor, but I gained knowledge related with photography and filming. The director has taught me how connect with other actor or actress that we never know each other before and also how to act. What have you been working on recently that has got you most excited ? Working with the teamwork from New York University is a priceless experience I can’t find anywhere in my life. It was by chance that I never expect. I was so excited to visit their studios. They got over 400 studios, Many edition rooms, Cinema and so on. Even though it was a short film but they use all expensive stuff to produce

the movie. Everyone worked so hard even the rain has stopped us sometime. What is your inspiration of your photography? Where did you get it from? And who is the most your inspiration?

Ask the Expert Q Chutneys and pickles

Chutneys and pickles add great flavours as condiments, but do they have any nutritional benefits? “Are there any chutneys and pickles better than others? I would like to use these occasionally but am not sure whether they are any good for me.”

Cathy Essentially, chutneys, relishes and pickles are preserves made from vegetables and /or fruit, vinegar and sugar. While the fruit, vegetables, spices added and ingredients may vary, chutneys depend on a certain level of vinegar, sugar (and salt) to enable them to be kept at room temperature without going off. It is because of their sugar content that restraint around them is frequently advised, but this does not mean you cannot use and enjoy them! Rather than thinking of them as something you can only use occasionally, think about them as you would jam, peanut butter or honey; something you can use daily but in small quantities with other healthy foods. A thin spread of chutney, particularly if you have it instead of butter, is a delicious start to a sandwich, and something you should not worry about. As to some varieties being better than others, since they are all relatively high in sugar, I would make my decision based on flavour and whether it complements the food you are serving it with, rather than any nutritional criteria.

Q A

Sports drinks Sports drinks come in fancy bottles and a range of different colours - but are they any good? I go to the gym. Do I need a sports drink during and/or after my workout? Probably not. If your workout is less than an hour long, or longer but at a low intensity, there’s little to be gained from drinking a sports drink over plain water from the tap. Four to eight per cent carbohydrate in a sports drink helps water absorption in the gut, and the sodium improves flavour and water absorption, as well as stimulating thirst so you drink more. Sports drinks are great for endurance sports or high intensity workouts, but can add unnecessary kilojoules and expense for shorter or less intense workouts. Losing body water can cause headaches and affect concentration, so it’s important to get enough water (from various drinks as well as foods) to get the best out of your workout and working day. If you’re not sure how much fluid you need, there are two ways to monitor this. One is to check the colour of your urine: if it’s pale or almost clear, you’re getting enough fluid. However, if your urine is darker, you need more fluid. You can also weigh yourself before and after a workout. Losing one kilo during exercise is equivalent to losing nearly one litre of fluid through sweating which has not been replaced by drinking. (Note that a weight gain indicates over-hydration which is also not advised and potentially harmful). Remember that your fluid needs will vary depending on the intensity and length of your exercise and will change from winter to summer.


Q Sushi

Is sushi safe to keep for later, and if so, for how long?

“Can you tell me how long store-bought sushi lasts? For example, if I buy a pack for lunch one day, can it be saved for lunch the next day?” Deborah Julia Clark, a dietitian at New Zealand Food Safety Authority responds:

“How long store-bought sushi lasts for or whether it’s safe to eat the next day depends on three things: the food safety practices of the retailer, how long the sushi is displayed for, and what you do with it next.

A

Sushi is at particular risk of being contaminated with bacteria during the preparation proccess. Bacillus cereus and staphylococcus aureus can grow on rice that hasn’t been cooled quickly after cooking. If ingredients are contaminated through poor hand hygiene and unclean utensils, you might be at risk of salmonella, campylobacter and listeria. The difficulty is that you can’t see this bacteria and looking closely or even smelling the sushi will not help you to know whether it is contaminated or not. It’s common to display sushi for sale at room temperature as this maintains the quality, texture and taste of the product. But this is also the ideal temperature for those harmful bacteria to grow. Some stores may display sushi in a chilled unit (2-4°C) which will prevent any further bacteria growth. Because of the way most sushi is prepared and stored, there is no guarantee it will be safe or even of good quality a day or two after buying it. If you do buy sushi to eat at a later time, follow these four tips to minimise your risk of getting sick. Buy sushi first thing in the morning and store in your fridge at work to eat for lunch that day or the next. Buy your sushi from an outlet that prepares the sushi fresh in front of you. If ready prepared, buy sushi that is displayed in a chiller (between 2-4°C) – and check the use-by date if it has one. If in doubt, ask the retailer when it was made, how long it has been on display, and how they prepare sushi to make sure it is safe to eat.”

Noodles How can you tell the good from the bad noodles? “My preschoolers love 2-minute noodles. There is such a range of noodles on offer. It would be helpful to know the good from the bad.” Suzanne Nutritionist Bronwen King responds:

A

Q

“The nutritional content of instant noodles can vary hugely. Traditional quick-cook noodles are fried during processing. This means that although they do not seem fatty, most have a fat content of over 15g per single serving pack, which is high for an everyday food. Given that instant noodles are also high in sodium and artificial flavours, they are not a nutritious choice for children and can contribute to weight gain. There are, however, low-fat versions on the market. Maggi has just relaunched their 2-minute noodles with a much reduced fat content (from 15.9g fat per serve to just 2.2g). They are now made with less sodium and all natural flavours. This is clearly a better choice among instant noodles. Remember, instant noodles served on their own should be an occasional food only. They do not have significant quantities of the nutrients kids need to grow and stay healthy. A better habit to encourage is having noodles or pasta as part of a meal with meat (or other protein) and good quantities of vegetables.”

Paintball is a game, first played in 1981 in New Hampshire, in which players compete, in teams or individually, to eliminate opponents by hitting them with capsules containing paint (referred to as a paintball) from a special gun called a paintball marker. The game is regularly played at a sporting level with worldwide leagues, tournaments, professional teams and players, but is also used by armies to supplement military training. Yet in Cambodia, now in Phnom Penh, Paintball studio is available . Price start from $8.00 per person, you can enjoy your day off with your mate.

Game on !

The paintball equipment used depends on the game type, for example: woodsball, speedball, or scenarioball, and how much money someone is willing to spend on equipment. Every player however, is required to have three basic pieces of equipment: • Paintball marker: also known as a paintball gun, this is the primary piece of equipment, used to tag an opposing player with paintballs. The paintball marker must have attached a loader or “hopper” for keeping the marker fed with ammunition, and a compressed air bottle for propellant. • Paintballs: The ammunition used in the marker, paintballs are spherical gelatin capsules containing primarily polyethylene glycol, other nontoxic and water-soluble substances, and dye. • Mask or goggles: Masks are safety devices players are required to wear at all times on the field, to protect from paintballs. They completely cover the eyes, mouth, ears and nostrils of the wearer, and some masks can also feature throat guards.

Canadian researchers have found that doing simple handgrip exercises like squeezing a tennis ball lowered blood pressure by 15 points over eight weeks in high blood pressure sufferers. Hypertension is associated with hardening of the arteries and squeezing seemed to increase artery flexibility. Try spending five minutes squeezing then releasing a slightly punctured tennis ball three times a week.

The trick is to tackle this habit, which will prevent headaches from developing. Once or twice an hour make a conscious effort to relax your jaw and release tension buildup. To do it, “ put a pencil between your teeth but don’t bite,” explains headache expert Dr. Fred Shelftell.

Researchers at Harvard Medical School of Mind Body Institute have found the average person’s heart rate drops 11 beats per minute while knitting and you get a sense of calm similar to that associated with mediation. Of course, you’re only going to chill with your needles if you’re not making mistakes, so we asked Marilyn Bensted of yarn store Wondeoflex for some tips. Her first never knit over knots. “ Never ignore knots in wool or they will unravel when you wash the garment leaving a hole.” Her second: Know how to measure how much wool you need to finish a row. “ It’s generally four times the width of the piece on your needles,” she says.

A study in the UK found people who inhaled heated air when they felt a cold coming on had half the cold symptoms of people who inhaled air at room temperature. “ Inhaling heated air may help kill a virus working its way up your nose, ” say the 1801 Home Remedies team. “ Set your hair dryer on warm ( not hot ) , hold it at least 18 inches [46cm ] from your face and inhale the air through your nose for as long as you can –at least two or three minutes, but preferably 20 minutes.”

A study published in the journal, the Archives of Dermatology, found that photographing your skin –and comparing it to past snaps –increase the chance of you spotting any changes in moles by 12 per cent. “ It’s particularly a good idea if you live alone or have a lot of moles that are heard to keep track of,” say Dr. Cathy Reid from the Australian College of Dermatologists. Take pictures about every three months, not forgetting areas likes your scalp, and remember the ABCDs to pinpoint changes: Asymmetry healthy moles are symmetrical, Border –should be smooth, Colour –it should be the same throughout, and Diameter –growing moles, or anything over 7m ( the size of a pencil eraser ) should be checked.

Horoscope Virgo (Aug 23 - Sep 22)

Saturn, the taskmaster planet that has been responsible for many of your trials and tribulations of the past two years, is moving back into Virgo this month for a brief 14-week stay, from May 7 to June 21. During this phase you will do one more challenge. After that, you will be done with Saturn in Virgo for the coming nearly three decades.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)

This month holds the potential for lots of interesting developments - in career, love, travel, and fitness - but Mercury is about to retrograde, so as much as you’d like to dive into activities and make decisions in a flash, you won’t be able to move quickly. In May, patience will bring benefits don’t rush to announce or seal plans, even if others pressure you to do so. To make the most of May, you will need to know where the potholes in your path lie. You will be able to sidestep problems, but you’ll need to stay alert to do so.

Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 21)

You may be mulling over your home circumstances and wondering how you got into this situation in the first place. It’s very likely unforeseen conditions put you where you are, and that you are doing the very best you can. The full moon that arrived on May 29 highlighted your frustrations, for that moon fell very close to Saturn, reminding you of how tightly controlled conditions have become for you. Saturn has been limiting your movements and choices, and you may be frustrated by what has transpired since the last quarter of 2009.

Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)

Libra ( Sep 23 - Oct 22)

Scorpio ( Oct 23 - Nov 21)

This will be a good, solid month that may include quite a bit of travel. The full moon that occurred on May 29 may have sent you packing a short distance, and if so, you seem to have had a goal to complete at that time. In fact, that trip might have been arduous in some way. No matter what you experienced, things will improve this month, as April seems perfect to send you further afield, to points very far from home, possibly even abroad. Spin your compass, dear Leo - it looks like you’ll be heading to the airport.

This will be a slower, less pressurefilled month, and you will get a chance to take a deep breath and collect your thoughts. You are coming off a rather depressing full moon in Libra, May 29 plus or minus four days. That full moon made certain realities very clear in a kind of matter-of-fact way, which is never easy. Saturn fell very close to that full moon, giving everyone, of every sign, a sobering view of life, but because it appears in your constellation, you may have felt it more than most. As you begin May, you may still be thinking about what came up.

Last month brought some heightened emotions to bear at the full moon, May 29, and you may have felt physically drained as a result of what was going on at the office. The moon was close to Saturn, and Pluto was in tough angle to the Sun, so no doubt you felt at the point where you were ready to crack if you didn’t get more support from higher ups around you. Happily, as you begin May, you will feel calmer and happier. VIPs are finally waking up to your need for support, and you suddenly find yourself in a prime position.

Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)

Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)

A work-related project seems to have come to a conclusion, and as you enter April, you may feel relieved that it is over. Take the first few days of April slow and easy. April will not be as busy as March turned out to be, so you can coast a little and enjoy life more. Saturn in Libra (a placement that Saturn took on October 29 last year) has added work to your shoulders, most likely because of cutbacks in personnel where you work.

As you begin May, you will be coming off a particularly stressful full moon in your relationship sector. That moon put the control in the hands of a partner or competitor, not you. If you felt at a disadvantage, you probably were not dreaming. A relationship may have upset or disappointed you, and it may have left you wondering what to do next. Those born in March were most affected by this full moon that appeared March 29 (but that is still strong for the first days of May). If you are an April-born Aries, you may have had an easier time.

As you enter April, you seem a bit frantic about money. You may have found that when bills came due, you didn’t quite have enough cash to pay them all, or a business deal that you depended on did not go as planned. Whatever happened seems to have unnerved you in the last week of March. Not to worry. You have some really fine financial aspects this month to help you make up for any shortfall, and you may do better than you ever expected.

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)

As a Capricorn, your career and reputation are of paramount importance. Few signs are as willing as you are to put in the long hours of work necessary to see the outstanding results you expect of yourself. Lately the pressure has been on you, due to a rare, once in three-decade position of Saturn in your tenth house of honors, awards, achievement, and fame. Responsibilities have been mounting and you seem to be in a phase where the nature of your job is about to change, and you will be asked to learn new skills and to aim toward higher standards.

This month, Mercury, the planet of logical, rational thinking and communication, will shut down for a rest on May 18 and will resume normal functioning June 11. Before you even get to May 18 - as soon as May 8 - you will start to feel the slowdowns, cancellations, and random difficulties in travel and shipping that Mercury in retrograde brings, so you will have to be very organized this month. If you cannot complete things quite that fast, then you would benefit by tabling all important agreements - even verbal ones - for May 13 and beyond.

Whenever there is a full moon at the end of the previous month, as we had May 29, emotions tend to run strong. So as the new month begins, you will likely still be thinking about what occurred. This full moon focused on your personal life - the person you love, or even a child - and brought a conclusion, ending, or major new development. That new moon helped you make a decision and move forward with greater certainty. If a cloud passed overhead at the end of March (possible, due to the presence of Saturn, which was so close to that full moon), you should find May to be a better month.
