Cambodia's new year's day is April 14. The holiday lasts for 3 days. Many people come to Wat Phnom.

This new year celebration is same as Thailand and Myanmar but they do not throw water so much. They use white powder instead.

Same as other countries, young beautiful girls are victims for the white powder. But they do not like to be powdered by anybody. Some girls actually got mad at the men who do it.

I found a strange play near Wat Phnom. Young boys and girls are stand separately both side. And one from each side is appointed from the other side and come to the center. The boy tries to get a branch on the ground and the girl tries to stop him.

When the boy successfully pick the branch up, everybody cheers him up. I do not know what it means.
