In Khmer class, we read a book called”កុលាបប៉ៃលិន”.This book is really famous in Cambodia, there is a lot of teaching things in the story. We also finish our poem and prepare to put in the Junior Khmer Poem book that we plan to create too.
The other special lesson to me was when we learned about Khmer Water Festival(បុណ្យអុំទូក) and one of the Khmer calibration which in Khmer is called “បុណ្យកថិន”. Water festival is happening long ago since King seven-period which is Angkor period and there is even the picture of the water festival on Angkor Wat temple. We celebrate the water festival because we want to remember of when our army in the period of king seven they fight the enemies on the Boeung Tonle Sap which is the biggest lake in Cambodia and we win which the army ride on the boat back and that when we started to have our water festival. In Khmer, we called Water festival is Bon Om Touk. This year Bon Om Touk is happening on Wednesday, November 21 until Friday, November 23. Also Cambodia this year we have a long boat which is also in the Cambodia genius world record. It is 80 m long. Which we will see it on the water festival day soon.
