Kampot Writers and Readers festival is an unusual event in Kampot province, Cambodia every November. This festival brings the writers and readers together and share their experience also seeing and learning about the global issue, literacy, culture, history, and education. As a writer and also a reader I attend this event for my second time. The last I participated, I was the listener, but this year I’m a listener and also a presenter. I was presenting about the Wildlife Animal Guide Book that I’ve been working on. The event went really well, I enjoyed listening to different presentations a lot. My favorite fart was going a boat cruise with the author of the book “Holiday in Cambodia”. She read part of the book to us while riding on the boat. We got to see a really nice view of the river, with “firefly fill the night sky.” I also enjoy doing street art, it was fantastic.
This year I join an “Astronomy camp” competition called NARIT. NARIT is an annual competition for high school students in southeast Asia. This year, this competition will be held in Chiang Mai, Thailand. It will be from 24-27 of January 2016. Only 40 students will be select based on their essay. The topic for the essay is “How does Astronomy play a significant part in your daily life?” After I know all the information and the qualification I started to research to find out more about the solar system. I’ve learned a lot during my research and started to write my essay. I was amazed how earth really depends on the sun. Later, it turned out I wasn’t selected, but I had learned a lot from it. It was a good experience entering the competition.
