    Unfortunately, I can not find the harvest. It's already over 3 weeks ago, a farmer tell. So, I 'just' looking these beautiful green padi. But I was really satisfied. And I stated ... will not write down the word "paddy" or 'rice' anymore but PADI. Yes, as simple as these green grains before the harvest come.

    'Post syndrome Cambodia' Phnom Dangkrek

    by ukirsari Updated Mar 27, 2004

    To be honest, my memories about Cambodia still here in my mind. VTer NickIng [Nicholas Ingram, UK] addressed me as "Miss Wat" which got post syndrome Cambodia blues for a long time. Well, maybe [yes be!!!] ... since I notice I just scream "Phnom Dangkrek [name of mountain range nearby the border of Cambodia - Thailand] look-alike!!!" when I saw these hilly areas on Purwakarta!
