Day 1

Refueling my thoughts,
channel it through the wind of change,
looking to change the way i am.
I'm so tired, physically and mentally
So tired of broken promises
How can i compromise this situation if i cant situate this situation?
I'm like a walking time bomb,
waiting for my invitation of death
If this were to be my last breath,
Will I rest in peace as i close my eye?

Approaching New Life

I'm crying this drying tears, silently, inside my heart.
Wishing that someone is hear to share my sadness.
Tonight is probably the last time of hearing my beloved mother preaching, redirecting me into a better person.
I am so speechless as what to respond to my precious ones.
I've put myself in this position of this addictions
Pretending that everything flows perfectly fine
But i cant define my mind, walking this fine line
Where is the sunshine that used to brightly shine?
Why am I so blind not able to visaulizing the facts of reality?
How long must I disguise this aching pain, the stain that remains inside my heart?

I dont know what LIFE is
But I know I'm hanging in there.
I dont know what LOVE is
But I know I'm seeking TRUE LOVE.

I look up to the sky
Pointing to the stars, the moon,
And asking heaven above, WHY???
I shall not die,
I shall survive...
I've been in hell not once but twice in my life
The hell of Srok Khmer
The hell of America
I yet see death
But I'm facing death
Now I fear death
I'm so bless to be surrounded by spiritual spirits
The spirit of my father
The spirit of my ancestor, my sister, my uncle
And the spirit of my angel within my soul
Loving my little prince at all time.

I kiss the floor
I kiss the dirt
This RED ALERT button
I dare not touch
As I rest thru the night in this messy nest
Praying that each and everyday is a better day....

Suburbia in 13th-century century Angkor was a low-density place, with houses perched on mounds to protect the structures from seasonal floods.
Small artificial ponds stored water that could be use to flood rice paddies.

Neighborhood temples, surrounded by miniature moats, echoed the structure of Angkor Wat.

As Angkor's population expanded, it would have needed to clear forest to create more neighborhoods like this one. Archaeologists speculate that resulting floods and erosion ruined the waterworks the city depended on, possibly leading to its collapse.

Aerial photos show some of the more visible remnants of Angkor's urban sprawl. Clockwise from top left: household ponds, canals, smaller “village” temples, and one-sided embankments that both channeled water and served as roadways.
Archaeologists matched these recognizable features to shapes shown by radar. They discovered structures in more remote regions that are covered by forest or made hazardous by land mines left over from Cambodia's wars

Although the city thrived for six centuries, Angkor was no stranger to strife.

A Thai royal document, for example, records the invasion and sacking of the city in the mid-1400s. Modern looting still threatens Angkor temples, many of which are beyond the UN World Heritage site boundaries that protect Angkor Wat. (See pictures of new World Heritage sites named in 2007.)

Pollen found in the ruins suggests that blooming lotuses floated in the moat, which was thought to wash away the sins of those who crossed over the stone causeway.

Tropical vines, trees, and roots nearly reclaimed Angkor Wat in the centuries after the city's demise, although local people continued to visit the sacred site.

An aerial radar survey (bottom) has revealed for the first time the extent of the ancient urban sprawl that surrounded central Angkor. The radar readings—plus ground surveys and images snapped by satellites, planes, and a NASA space shuttle—allowed archaeologists to create a groundbreaking new map of greater Angkor.
The radar results provided the highest-resolution images yet of the region. The sharp images allowed the team to identify small features like household ponds and low mounds that channeled water into agricultural fields. The images also show breaks in canals, which may shed light on how and when Angkor's waterworks failed.

August 13, 2007—The largest religious complex in the world, Cambodia's Angkor Wat (pictured) is the jewel in the vast Angkor archaeological site.
The lost city was an ancient wonder of urban sprawl, according to a new survey that uncovered 74 temples and more than a thousand artificial ponds in Angkor's "suburbs."

The Khmer Empire's King Suryavarman II built Angkor Wat between A.D. 1113 and 1150 to honor the Hindu god Vishnu. Carved from soft sandstone, the temple complex's statues crumbled and toppled in the wake of Angkor's decline. Still guarded by a 4-mile (6.4-kilometer) moat, the restored Angkor Wat today fuels a booming tourist trade at the modern town of Siem Reap.

World Bank Grants $70M in Cambodia Aid

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia - The World Bank said Tuesday it will give US$70 million (euro51.3 million) to Cambodia to help reduce its widespread poverty in a package that includes a plan to import cheap electricity from the country's neighbors.

Some US$18.5 million (euro13.5 million) will be used to build cross-border transmission lines to Laos and Vietnam to import electricity to Cambodia, the bank said in a statement Tuesday. The project is expected to be completed by August 2011, it said.

The new power lines will connect Kampong Cham province in the east with Vietnam, and Stung Treng province in the northeast with Laos, the bank said in June. The two provinces now have some of highest electricity rates in the world.

Customers in the provinces pay up to US$.30 (euro.22) per kilowatt-hour of electricity. The tariffs are expected to drop to between US$.10 (euro.07) to US$.15 (euro.11) per kilowatt-hour once the transmission lines are operational, the bank said.

The remaining money in the aid package will be used for projects supporting development of the private sector, public financial management, good governance, natural resource management and decentralization of local government, the statement said.

The funds will help "build stronger institutions of governance that will lead to higher growth and faster poverty reduction," Ian Porter, the bank's country director for Cambodia, said in the statement.

Cambodia has achieved double-digit economic growth during the last three years but still remains one of the world's poorest nations.

Donors in June pledged US$689 million (euro501 million) in aid for Cambodia after rapping the government of Prime Minister Hun Sen for failure to combat corruption. The World Bank statement did not say whether the new aid is part of the earlier pledge.

Fraud and corruption in the procurement process led the World Bank in June 2006 to freeze US$7.6 million (euro5.6 million) in funding for several projects in Cambodia. Hun Sen angrily said there was no proof of wrongdoing.

Early this year, the bank lifted the suspensions after it agreed with the government on new frameworks for improving implementation of the projects.
