On the 7th of February, in Chhomus Kaek and Koh Krobey pagoda, we, Liger Leadership Academy students and ARC (Animal Rescue Cambodia) hosted a free rabies vaccination event for the villagers pets that live close to these two pagodas. We were setting up the tables and the supplies for the event to get ready for the event that start at 8am and end at 12pm in Chhompus Kaek pagoday, and in the afternoon from 1pm until 5pm in Koh Krobey pagoda. We also divided into teams that are advertising about the free rabies vaccines for the villagers and give the rabies vaccination to the pets in the pagoda. I was in the advertising team and it was really fun and I had a lot of experiences from it. I recorded my voice to the microphone and play it as we traveled through the villages, and what it says was “Hurry up!! Everyone!! It is not too late take your pets to get a free Rabies Vaccination at the pagoda around this time”. We got a lot of attention from the people in the village and we were happy because we saw a lot of the villagers were bringing their pets to get a free rabies vaccination.
Almost every week we were having football competition with other teams. Mostly the coach made list of 18 students including me. As you know I like football by a lot. 90% of the time that my name on the starting line-up. It is easy for me to get into the starting line-up because I am the only student that play left-wing. This year we have a bad season because we played 4 matches so it looks like this, LDLW and we don’t know which team that we are going to play with next.
As football is my passion and one of my future goals is to be a football player I also lead an after school activities(ASE) with the junior students. It seemed most of them are interesting in this activity but only small amount of students that join this activity, but now I saw a lot of progress in this ASE. They are started to enjoy football more and more. And thank you Theara, my team mate, for helping me.
Down below is my training video that I edited last month!!
Rabies is a type of virus that reaches your brain and cause Encephalitis.Rabies move through our nervous system. 600,000 bites a year, 3-4 injuries from 100 people. After bitten the virus takes 1-3 months to reach the nervous system. Eating dogs meat also could transmit the disease to human too if we wound in our mouth. It is 100% FATAL, no cure, only vaccine. The symptoms of animals that have rabies are, hydrophobia, acrophobia, hyper-salivation, and difficult in breathing. You can identify the animal if it has, tail down, voice change, lost of orientation, can’t recognize its owner, hyper-salivation has rabies. I Cambodia rabies identify that it is mostly happen on dogs but these animals also have it too, cat, cow, pig, squirrel, bat, and African Dog. Why is it mostly happen on dogs in Cambodia? Because it is our favorite pet and popular.
I am writing a song about myself. I get inspired by some songs in the 60s. This song is talking about how I end up with loving each girls from all provinces in Cambodia. In fact I wrote this song because it’s reminded of places that I been to around Cambodia. Down below is my Khmer song that I wrote!!
Hello!! And welcome to the Khmer Rouge exploration and we are studying about the year 1975 to 1979. Khmer Rouge took control of Phnom Penh in 17, April 1975. Most of the population in the city are evacuated to different places around the countryside. There were about 3 million Cambodians were killed.
One of the best moment that I like the most in this exploration is went on a trip to Annlong Veng, we went to many different places there and learned a lot of things. My highlight is went to War Museum in Siem Reap it was my second time there and was a huge experience.
