Sach Phak Lov, Orussey Market

Do you like trying Street Food? I myself like trying new food. It doesn't have to be at a popular restaurant, it doesn't have to be very healthy or clean. As long as the local could eat it, I have the gut to try. :)

If you are one of a kind. This is one of the types you shouldn't miss. Last Sunday, I and my friend went to a stall nearby Orussey Market for Sach Phak Lov (សាច់ផាក់លូវ) and its drink (ទឹកយ៉ាវម៉ា). This place is quite popular, I even heard a family who came from Australia came to this stall three days consecutively just before they travel back home.

A dish of Phak Lov for two people. 
I guess the best part of the dish is its sauce and veggie. Yum!

How tables are arranged and you probably could recognize the location

Another great drink! Soya Bean (left), Yav Ma Drink (right)
Oftentimes, people would travel a long way just to buy the Yav Ma drink. My dad and I like it alot. The taste is sweet and you could feel some sort of herbal. I think it is a healthy drink.

Price Range: 
For drink: It costs about 1000 Riel per glass, and 2500 Riel per bottle
For Phak Lov: It probably cost 15000 Riel for two persons. 

Location: around Orussey Market, if you are standing right in front of the main gate, then the stall is on the right of Orussey market. You need to talk and turn left, then walk straight til the third gate of Orussey market.

  2. Two of the same kind by Linda Haefeli

    According to reliable furniture shop in Phnom Penh construction materials information, designer and architect Linda Haefeli was commissioned to renovate a beach house with two bathrooms in demand for new design concept. Hence, the designer decided to design in one concept: showering after visiting the beach and multi-adjoined family members.
    "We introduced a long shower space floored with slated wood to collect any residual sand and ensure it drained away unnoticed," said Haefeli. "Elongated handrails and an oversized heated towel rail mean clothes are never left on the floor, and there is always a dry towel on hand."
    "We designed this space so two, or even all three children, could use the space effectively," spoke the designer. "To this end, there is a double vanity, with the shower and toilet arranged in a row like cubicles. The far wall of the shower stall is frosted to provide privacy for the toilet cubicle."
    "Scale, tone and materials were all linking elements," she added. "Together with the smooth limestone, both rooms feature porcelain floor and wall tiles. All these tiles are in the same hue, used in differing sizes on the walls and the floors."
