Today's Trip to Anlung Chen (Anlung Chinese)

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. 🙂

  1. you are seemly busy with your schoolwork. the journalism career is not staying one place. if so, you have no news to release. Hehaha. That is interesting island, where is it located?

  2. Hi Bong Vutha,

    Anlung Chen Island is near Buffalo Island (Koh Krabey). You need to cross a river to Anlung Chen. At first, go past Takhmao and get on a ferry to the Island. Hurray!! 😀

  3. Was the meal free? I could feel how cool the people from countryside are(mostly better than the one in town).

    Yes, Bong Bros Wanna, the meal was free of charge. Surprisingly enough, the family rushed off to cook those foods for us…they were very hospitable…I wish all of the city dwellers behaved like that.
