Cambodia: World AIDS Day HIV Campaign, 'Testing Millions,' to Again Launch During Cambodia's National Water Festival
Some photos of the arrangement of our new water fountain for our reading room I will post for you tomorrow, curious what you will think about it and if you like it, as it is our home. :-*
As I told you this morning on the phone, received last week a mailing from one of my favorite stores, special promotion, 30% discount on everything I would buy this week. So I went there this morning, as I need some cloths due to the weight I lost the last months. I bought a cord trouser, some socks, a shirt, a leather wallet, some christmas cinnamon star cookies, a few candles, a candle holder for outside to be used on our balcony, a dark red jumper and some christmas gift for you, I will not tell or show. ;-)
Saved a lot because of the 30% discount, really good customer service. Would have been nice to shop together. IMYSM
Bought also something really nice for our reading room, but this I will show here in another post on our side soon.

Vice president of communications and public policy Elliot Schrage, in a post on the Facebook blog, said members will have until November 5 to send in their comments about the proposed changes.
"This is the next step in our ongoing effort to run Facebook in an open and transparent way," he said. "After the comment period is over, we'll review your feedback and update you on our next steps."
"Specifically, we've included sections that further explain the privacy setting you can choose to make your content viewable by everyone," he said.
Schrage said the changes also clarify the difference between deactivating and deleting an account and "the process of memorialising an account once we've received a report that the account holder is deceased."
Facebook said it will save profile information such as friend lists and photos from a deactivated account in case a member decides to reactivate it later but the material will not be viewable by other users.
It said a deleted account is "permanently deleted."
Facebook said information from a deleted account may still be viewable on the pages of other users if it was shared or copied and stored by them.
"However, your name will no longer be associated with that information on Facebook," it said, and will be attributed to an "anonymous Facebook user."
Facebook also stressed that personal data is not provided to advertisers. "The information we provide to advertisers is 'anonymised,' meaning that it can't be traced back to you as an individual in any way," Schrage said.
Racers, be careful: Hun Sen
Flooding, swift current seen as potential hazards during festival.
PROVINCIAL AUTHORITIES ... WITH BOATS IN THE
COMPETITION NEED TO THINK ABOUT THEIR TEAMS’ SAFETY.
PRIME Minister Hun Sen advised boat-racing teams to exercise caution when competing in unusually high waters during this weekend’s Water Festival as trial races began on Tuesday.
“All provincial authorities and all pagodas with boats in the competition need to think about their teams’ safety while travelling [on the river] because the water is still high. It would be best to send health officers or doctors along with them,” the prime minister said.
A strong rainy season and persistent flooding since Typhoon Ketsana have engorged Cambodia’s river systems, presenting this weekend’s racers with the danger of a fast, powerful and unpredictable current.
Am Vanny, chairman of the Phnom Penh Boat Racing Committee, said Wednesday that the race’s organisers had set up 10 health stations along the course.
“There will be 10 health officers at each station and [a larger staff at] the main medical centre in the Chrouy Changvar primary school, near the Chroy Changvar Bridge, in order to save people on time,” he said.
Pa Socheatvong, deputy governor of Phnom Penh, said Wednesday that in addition to the emergency response stations, City Hall had arranged to “have speedboats standing by… along the riverside”.
In Kratie, Governor Kham Phoeun said he had urged the 33 boat teams from his province to keep safety in mind while paddling to the capital and had also provided them with medical support.
“Three or four doctors will come with the boat racers in order to look after them and save them in the event of an emergency,” he said, adding that his province takes similar safety precautions every year.
The Water Festival is the biggest event on the Cambodian calendar: An estimated 2 million people descend on the capital for three days of celebration every year. This year, the festival takes place from November 1 to 3.
The National Committee for Organising National and International Festivals said there are 391 boats registered to compete this year.

What I really admire and like a lot is the cambodian handcraft and artwork. Just two examples on the following photos.
A Buddha statue made of wood, which is in the office on my desk. Bought it during my visit to Cambodia in April/May this year, near the Russian market. Remember us buying it together? IMYSM!
The second example is a cambodian silk scarf, a wonderful and meaningful gift I received in August during our great weeks in Germany. Really love the material and design, great to wear now during autumn season over here.

A New Perspective
by ANTHONY on JULY 20, 2007
Sometimes a simple change of perspective can make all the difference. It can be like the dawn of a new day.
In response to the challenges life brings us, it’s easy to sometimes view the world from a perspective of survival. From this perspective we often examine situations and ask ourselves, "What can I get from this? What can I take? What can I gain?". This perspective is illustrated by the following picture:
One of the most powerful secrets for achieving success is to change this perspective and instead, examine the world from a perspective of contribution. Change the questions you ask yourself and instead of asking, "What can I get? What can I take? What can I gain?" ask, "What can I give? What can I share? What can I contribute?"
The most amazing thing about this change of perspective is that the more you contribute to the lives of others, the more you will receive in return.
For example if you run a business, instead of focusing on "making a sale", change your focus to "helping your customers and making a positive contribution to their life". When you do this, your customers will sense your genuine desire to help them and as a result you will gain more sales.
This Week’s Action Steps:
(1) In every situation ask yourself, "What can I give? What can I share? What can I contribute?"
(2) Make a contribution to others and enjoy the benefits life sends you in return.
Until next time,
Dare To Dream!
"We're happy to be helping"
"The Bundesliga Foundation has set itself the goal of helping children in every way possible, so we've very happy to be helping in a country like South Africa where AIDS is a very big problem," said Gaugler. "CARE has been aiding charities for decades now and we're convinced that we've found the perfect partner. In December we'll be going over there to present an update on our progress."
The "Kick it - Choose Life" project offers children and young people the chance to take part in sporting activities as opposed to a life on the streets and offers children a mentoring programme to help them understand the dangers of HIV, AIDS, drug abuse and criminal behaviour.
