Working under the deadline constraint was not something I dreamed about and being a journalist student has made me as busy as a bee ever since. For a few weeks, I have stuggled against the deadline my news writing teacher has set. And today was a good beautiful day as I had to go out to Anlung Chen island, famous for breath-taking countryside scenaries and one special kind of (green-leaved and flowered) vegetable called Slek Kanchay. The vegetables which look like garlic leaves do have a distinct smell and make very good dishes. I spent my whole day there talking to different farmers who grow Slek Kanchay on their market gardens. They all enjoy planting and selling Slek Kanchay, which is a good source of income.
Here are some photos I took during my visit. At the end of the day, we were served a nice meal. The farmers (owners of the Sleuk Kanchay garden) were so kind to cook us freshly picked vegetables with Cambodian river clams. 🙂
