    Do share what you’ve heard….

    Here’s mine from the trip last Sunday:

    My friend and I went from house to house to deliver the donation to flood victims, one of them was her grade 1 classmate- a sweet girl..I think we are the same age. She was carrying a lil boy in her arms, another 10 yr old boy was eating near her, and a man was sitting not far from her. I thought they were her husband and kids until my friend told her story and the man was her brother and those were his kids. Many years back she was engaged to a guy, and just one day before their wedding the guy got really drunk and died in his sleep. The villagers believed that she was a man-eater who brought bad luck because her future husband died just one day before the wedding. Since then no men wanted to marry her, and it looks like she’s gonna be single for the rest of her life.

    My first reaction to the story was..”BS!…..”

    “… and it looks like she’s gonna be single for the rest of her life.”

    Sometimes this is a blessing.
    If she is meant to be single for the rest of her life, I wish it is so in her case.

    I think some of you might have heard about that story Rithisen Neang Kong-rey, and about Phnom Neang Kong-rey in Kompong Chnang province. In that story neang kong-rey died and became that mountain, and ma’om (a type of plant we use to put in our soup) is her private hair, and any wizards or people practicing black magic will lose their power if they eat the plant because it’s her private hair.

    Boy! They must believe that the story was real and that mountain was really her.

    I don’t know what she wants.
    I’m just hoping for the best for her.

    so to you the best for her is being single with no husband n kids…well, everyone has their own view.
    To me, the best for her is being able to live a normal life like every other girl, not being avoided by guys, get married, have kids, grandkids….

    I said sometimes being single can be a blessing.
    (we all know…not every marriage results in happiness)
    If she’s meant to be single for the rest of her life…
    If that is her fate, then i wish it’s a “blessing” for her.

    If she finds someone in the future, I’m happy for her too.

    instead of condemning her, those people should look at her situation from a different prospective.

    I think she’s lucky that he died before they got married.
    Do they even know what killed him? (they’re blaming her.)
    What if whatever he had could be passed to her?
    What if he died after they had a baby?

    Another one:
    Twin brother and sister were husband and wife in the past life and they wished to be together again the next life that’s y they were born twins. Khmer people would have a small wedding ceremony for them when they are big enough to understand what they are told to do- like sit still while others give them blessings.

    The story highlights the influence of religion and the lack of education these people have to modern science.

    1. No one knows for sure if they were really husband and wife in the past life.
    2. Biology dictates that inbreeding is not healthy for the offspring as it can cause birth defects.
