Impressive Bon Om Touk ~ Cambodian Water Festival 2018

Yeah‌ SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 is gonna sharing 👩🏻‍💻📝 here about her impressive 🀩 & unforgettable experience gained from the annual Cambodian 🇰🇭 Water 💊💧 Festival 🎉🎊, Phnom Penh, Cambodia 🇰🇭

So, it was all started with a short queue to get her 👩🏻 cheap ⬇ flight ticket ✈ during the AirAsia BIG Xchange & BIG Fest event ❀ in Sept (as shown in the short clip 📹🎥below). It was with only a limited choice of destinations📍📍available

She 👩🏻 has chosen ✅ for Phnom Penh 🇰🇭 under Lane B with a very 1⃣st intention to meet & visit 1⃣ of her girlfriend 🙋🏻‍♀ who is working there as an expatriate currently. However, sadly 😟 that her friend 🙋🏻‍♀ wasn’t around ❌ Phnom Penh 🇰🇭 during her travel dates 🗓 Sigh…From a friend visit👭, then she had it as 1⃣ of her annual solo travelsss 🎒🧢🕶👟

💗 ~ Everything Happens For A Reason ~ 💗

Also initially she 👩🏻 did plan to let go this solo trip because of a clash to a tourism event ~ MITA Sarawak, Malaysia 🇲🇟 that she 👩🏻 has always supporting 💪🏻✌🏻the tourism authority 😊 in Malaysia 🇲🇟

Guess what❓⁉

Her trip is gonna be during the annual Cambodian 🇰🇭 Water 💊💧 Festival 🎉🎊 named Bon Om Touk in local Khmer language 🇰🇭 from 21 Nov to 23 Nov 2018 😃😁 It also known as The Pirogue 🚣🏻‍♂🚣🏻‍♀ Racing Festival 🎉🎊 or Water 💊💧 & Moon 🌑 Festival 🎉🎊 & Boat Racing 🚣🏻‍♀🚣🏻‍♂

http://cambodia-tourism.org/plan-your-trip/events/cambodian-water-festival/

It was really a coincident‌ Once she 👩🏻 has decided ✅ to stay with this solo travel 🎒🕶🧢👟 due to the complicated & difficult flight change 😟✈ Also this gonna be her 1⃣st visit to Phnom Penh, Cambodia 🇰🇭

This biggest celebration marks a 12th century naval victory with boat 🚣🏻‍♀🚣🏻‍♂ racing along the Sisowath Quay 💊💧 with the boat 🚣🏻‍♀🚣🏻‍♂ racing on the Tonle Sap River, in particular the area stretching from street 104 to street 178 of Phnom Penh city centre 🇰🇭

Many hostels 🏡🏘, hotels 🏢, restaurants 🍜🍎 & bars 🥂🍻🍞around this area ~ Very convenience for all visitors 👫👭👬

Photo 27-11-2018, 3 21 18 PMPhoto 27-11-2018, 3 22 33 PM

In the morning 🔅🔆 & before the race 🚣🏻‍♂🚣🏻‍♀ starts during this 3⃣-day festival 🎉🎀, the riverside & streets were much more peaceful 😌

Once the race starts around 🔟am, the huge crowd 👭👬👫 at the riverside will be observed 😃👏🏻🙌🏻

However, in 2015 this celebration 🎉🎊 was cancelled ❌ due to the low ⬇ water level 💊💧

Hurray‌ She 👩🏻 always wanna appreciating & experiencing a country’s tradition culture during her travels ✈🎒🕶🧢👟 This is just so a lovely 💓 coincidence 😉

So, what’s this water 💊💧 festival 🎊🎉 all about❓⁉

It’s a 3⃣ days non-religious celebration 🎉🎊 & symbolised as an ancient appreciation 🙏🏻 for centuries to the river 💊💧for providing a source of livelihood to the farmers 👚🏻‍🌟👩🏻‍🌟 & fishermen 🐟🎣

Hmm…It’s a kind of local Khmers 🇰🇭👫👭👬 thanksgiving 🙏 celebration 🎉🎊

The Cambodian boat crews 🇰🇭🚣🏻‍♀🚣🏻‍♂ were face forward. Many of the boat crews 🚣🏻‍♀🚣🏻‍♂ were complemented with a colorfully-costumed lady 💁🏻‍♀at the prow dancing to the beat of the drums 🥁🥁

However, from her observation, majority of the boats now don’t really practising this tradition though. Hmm…From her 2⃣ days visits to the festival, she only noticed for 2⃣ boats with a colorfully-costumed lady 💁🏻‍♀ at the front of the boat 🚣🏻‍♀🚣🏻‍♂

For the 1⃣st 2⃣ days, races 🚣🏻‍♀🚣🏻‍♂ are run with 2⃣ boats 🛶🛶 each, with the big race 🚣🏻‍♂🚣🏻‍♂ happening on the last day, when all the boats 🛶🛶 take to the river 💊💧 to compete 😃

There were carnival, rides, traditional music 🎌🎶🎵 performances, dances 💃🏻🕺🏌👯‍♀👯‍♂🕎🏻etc. in the evening 🏙🌃🌌

There were many stall vendors, definitely food 🍛🍲🥘🍜🍎& drink 🥀🍻🍷🥂🍞🍹overflow on the streets, Khmer pop bands 🎌🎹🎧🎶🎵entertaining the crowds 👭👬👫 etc.

Photo 27-11-2018, 12 43 20 PM

Personally, she 👩🏻 was impressed how the local vendors actually earn their living 💰by selling drinks 🥀& snacks 🥡🍰🥧🥪 to the huge crowds 👭👬👫 at the riverside during the boat racing 🚣🏻‍♀🚣🏻‍♂

There were approximately 300 boats 🛶🛶 with 19k pax of boat rowers 🚣🏻‍♀🚣🏻‍♂ Wow!!

Hmm…🀔 How about the huge crowd 👭👫👬attended for this 3⃣-day festival celebration 🎉🎊 in Phnom Penh❓⁉

IMG_4571.JPG

It was about 4.5million people 👭👬👫 including expatriates, foreign visitors, local Khmers from all provinces etc. as shared at the closing ceremony 😁

Ohh yeah‌ This year, 2018 i.e. The 3rd great successfull year with Cambodia 🇰🇭 has handbuilt the world 🌍🗺 ‘s longest rowing boat 🚣🏻‍♀ at 87.3m long & 1.99m wide with cost of $60k. It was completed successfully 👍🏻👏🏻🙌🏻 in Sept by more than 14k local Khmers 🇰🇭👭👬👫 in 192 days 😲😃

Guess what❓⁉

Another Guinness World 🌍🗺 Record 🏆 won (It’s the 5⃣th one) by Cambodia 🇰🇭 as this long dragon boat 🚣🏻‍♂ is capable of carrying 179 boat rowers 🚣🏻‍♂🚣🏻‍♀ on it‌ Wow‌😲 This great 👍🏻 news was anounced on 12 Nov at Prey Veng province of Phnom Penh 🇰🇭

From her own experience, a few points 📌📌 to note if you’re interested to be at Phnom Penh or Siem Reap for this great 👍🏻 annual celebration 🎊🎉

Ohh ya…A pair of comfy shoes 👟 is essentials ✅ because it was vehicles free 🆓 i.e. No public transport ❌🚌🚕🚗 🚐 being available to the festival 🎉🎊 ground📍, more details via 🌐 https://www.khmertimeskh.com/50551697/city-hall-issues-vehicle-ban-for-water-festival/

In this connection, the only option would be just getting around by your own foot 👣

Yeah‌ SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 got her sun ☀🌞 protection from the 🆕 Petal Velvet Sunaway SPF50 ordered & purchased 👩🏻‍💻🛒 from Althea Korea 🇰🇷 You must remember to put up your sunscreen to avoid sunburn

Photo 27-11-2018, 12 35 31 PM.jpg

Next, do bring an umbrella 🌂☂ (You may loan it from your hotel, it can be a weapon if needed)/ wear a cap 🧢

Do dress up in a light modest clothing 👚 to enjoy the boat 🚣🏻‍♀🚣🏻‍♂ race cheerings with the local Khmers 🇰🇭👭👬👫 at the riverside under the hot sunny 😎☀ day

Ohh ya…Do remember your refillable water 💊💧 bottle to avoid dehydration ya 😌

She 👩🏻 was with the local Khmers 🇰🇭👫👭👬 on her 1⃣st visit & then 2⃣nd visit the next day at the designated area by Tourism Cambodia 🇰🇭 for the foreign tourists 👬👫👭 (Served with free 🆓 flow of drinks🥀🥀available)

The riversides 💊💧 were extremely packed & crowded 👬👫👭 with both the local Khmers 🇰🇭👫👭👬 & foreign tourists to cheering for their favorite ❀ boats🚣🏻‍♂🚣🏻‍♀during the races, so suggest you to bring only the bare necessities & hold on tight to what you have. Also being alert with your surroundings too while in the huge crowd 👭👬👫

Why❓⁉

Hmm…You never know whether you will be being targetted by any pick-pockets/ bag-snatchers 😈👿 whom may just roaming around the crowded festival 🎉🎊 riversides 💊💧& streets. So, even though this festival 🎉🎊 is a free 🆓 celebration 🎉🎊 , however it can get really expensive if you make a mistake by carrying valuables into the crowds 👭👬👫

Always better be safe then sorry ya ☺😉

There were several types of rowing 🚣🏻‍♀🚣🏻‍♂ styles observed from her visits, i.e. sitting down & manual rowing, standing up & manual rowing, standing up & auto rowing etc. She 👩🏻 is curious 🀔 how the marks will be allocate within each different styles as well as the determining factors of winning 🏆🎖 too❓⁉

Perhaps logically the shortest time 🕛 of completion from the start till end time of each boat at the finishing line (The 2⃣ red ❀ boats 🚣🏻‍♀🚣🏻‍♂ as captured in the photo 📞 & vBlog 📹🎥below)

There were live announcement during the boat racing 🚣🏻‍♂🚣🏻‍♀, however in local Khmer 🇰🇭 language & ❌ no English translation. It would be good to have a live English announcement in the next year festival onwards ya 😊

The King Norodom Sihamoni 🀎🏻, Prime Minister Hun Sen 👚🏻‍💌& some senior officials 🙋🏻‍♂💁🏻‍♂ have all attended the closing ceremony on the last day of this festival 🎉🎊 She 👩🏻 has observed from the TV screen 📺 at the foreign visitors designated booth

Ohh ya…She 👩🏻 has enjoyed the longest & the pretty 😍🀩 fireworks 🎆🎇 so far from the closing ceremony of this water festival 🎉🎊

Really amazing beautiful 😍🀩 & with the boats 🛶🛶 decorated with LED lighting💡💡screens represented by each relevant authorities of organising & managing this water 💊💧 festival 🎊🎉 e.g. Tourism, Justice, Ministry of Art & Handicrafts etc. to name a few noted 😉

Ohh ya…Some of the eateries 🍜🍎 & shops 🛒🛍may close ⛔ during this water 💊💧 festival 🎉🎊 (All 3⃣ days) & resume their operation then 🀗

This festival 🎊🎉 also ended with lots of clean up & tidy up at the riverside by the local Khmers 🇰🇭👬👬👬

Letter's End by Wolfe Bowart, more details in https://siennylovesdrawing.wordpress.com/

Letter’s End by Wolfe Bowart 

Yeah‌SiennyLovesDrawing was invited by Divesecity.my to watch the Malaysian 🇲🇟 Premiere Letter’s End recent months

What’s that about❓⁉

To SiennyLovesDrawing, it’s a meaningful well planned live performance of clown 🀡 theatre cum puppetry 🎭 comedy through digital media 💻🎥

Hmm…Definitely an impressive visual composition that weaves together clown 🀡 theater, circus 🀹🏻‍♂ skill, stage illusion, puppetry 🎭 & physical comedy🀣😆

Guess what❓⁉

The playwright cum performer 🀡, Mr. Wolfe Bowart 👚🏌has enchanted the young 👶🏻👊🏻👧🏻 & young at heart through a method of story-telling that is becoming rare during the recent KL International Arts Festival [KLIAF] 2017 in Malaysia 🇲🇟

Letter’s End was honoured with a Helpmann Award 🎖nomination, the Australian 🇊🇺equivalent of the Olivier Awards🎖[in the category of Best Touring Production]. Absolutely it charmed all audiences of all ages in countries around the world 🌎

“Although the character 👚🏌in this live performance doesn’t speak ❌🗣, the actor 👚🏌communicates with his body & through music🎶🎵, a little voiceover 🗣& the magic of technical theater, the audiences👫👭👬understand what the actor👚🏌 is going through. The word “mime” has traditionally been used to describe the art of creating the illusion of objects & space – eating an imaginary 🍎 In Letter’s End, the boxes 📊📊are real & I really eat an apple 🍎 Letter’s End is filled with shadow puppets 🎭, film 🎞 interaction, magic & circus 🀹🏻‍♂acts ~ it’s funny 😂 & heart-warming😊This makes it a unique theatrical experience especially the story is told using stage illusion & circus skills, I’m often asked, ‘How did you do that❓⁉” shared Mr. Wolfe Bowart

This Helpmann Award🎖nominee truly believes that nothing beats a live act to captivate & delight children👶🏻👊🏻👧🏻, especially compared to watching a story unfold on a digital screen💻

At 1⃣ point during the performance, Mr Bowart 👚🏌 has invited a young audience 👊🏻 to participate onstage. As 1⃣ of the audiences, SiennyLovesDrawing felt it was a charming moment & of course an interactive move with his audiences👫👭👬for live participation 👍🏻 The boy👊🏻was given a hard hat 🎩 & put immediately to work aka the live action with him 👚🏌in the story telling theatre 😆

Mr Bowart 👚🏌shared further, “I’ve always enjoyed performing 🀡 🀹🏻‍♂for people; making people laugh 😂 🀣. All children 👶🏻👊🏻👧🏻 are naturally playful.”

In Letter’s End, a man is tasked to burn lost packages and letters in a furnace, a job he carries out meticulously, until an old brown teddy bear falls out of a torn parcel. A memory is stirred. Soon, the man begins to open other packages and letters, and a whole wondrous world unfolds. Letter’s End is a memorable piece steeped in charm and the joy of human interaction. Something we are in danger of forgetting in our reliance on technology to cultivate the sense of wonder, adventure and creativity in children.

It was 7⃣5⃣ mins live act & ❌no photo 📞/ video 🎥📹 taking is allowed during the show. SiennyLovesDrawing has respected it as she can really put down her digital devices📱& focus in enjoying a great laugh out loud😃😄with all the audiences👬👭👫 attended.

It’s really an awesome 🆒 show not to be missed ya ‌😃👍🏻

Really wish this acclaimed playwright 🀡 will come & perform in the Malaysian premiere of Letter’s End next year or perhaps every years 😀😉

Yeah‌SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 got a privilege to have a photo 📞 captured (Ha…Ha…the crazy 😜 faces) with Mr Wolfe Bowart 👚🏌 after the show
