Closer and closer to SMILE

I thought I was quite well prepared for the exhibition ( but it appears I am not and will spend Saturday finalising slightly more than bits and pieces. I have now picked up my Sampot from the tailors to see the King and I am sooooo delighted with the result. It is a beautiful long skirt in red with a mermaid kick at the bottom (I do not expect male readers to understand...!) It cost a whopping £17 in total... so really, how can you go wrong?

Today the Smile project was in the Phnom Penh Post. A Cambodian national newspaper. Here is a link to the article which is great exposure for the exhibition.

Not sure about all the references to my surname though ... makes me sound like a company perhaps!

My mum is on her way to Cambo land and will arrive on Saturday. I am looking forward to showing her the weird and wonderful ways of the country.

Hi Michelle,

I stumbled into your blog and read what you do with much interest. I really admire your work with the children and the courage to switch from being a lawyer to this.

In fact, I used to work in various other countries in humanitarian field and have been unemployed for awhile since I started accompanying my working husband. Now, I am here in Phnom Penh.

I would like to know whether it would be possible for me to do some part time volunteering work or help out in your project?

All the best for the exhibition tonight! I look forward to seeing the photos taken by the children.

Warm regards,

Ka Ea
