    Our history goes back some thousands of years ago. A dicovery was made too. A copper plate inscription was found and had some type of writing that looked like thai writing but it was not, it was one of the first writing systems. Hisstory ahows how monarch philippine cities traded with china. One sultan from Sulu actually went to beijing to offer a gift. The clothing was also very colorful Women wore long wrap skirts we call malongs that are still used today. We alos have tribes on Palawan Island that there dance consist of muslim and hindu beliefs. Bartering boats were always in abundance. They looked like chinese junks. Rice has always been important so many people worked in rice paddies with big pointy hats. History shows that we traded with champa I dont know what that is, and thailand , vietnam, arabia.Then ther still the mountain tribes people. There cultuire and dress resemble burmese hill tribes.
    somebody please send some khmer words to me or here

    Palawan is a beautiful name.In khmer it mean golden benefit or golden fruit.I believed the inscription that found in the phillipine would probably be khmer ancien script. Thai had no writing during the ancient of khmer civilization and there was no thailand,laos,or north vietnam.

    Champa is a muslim country. The Champa kingdom is the entirely of north vietnam today,Hanoi. I think it was lost to the Vietnamese in the 14 century. South of Vietnam belong to Cambodia,today vietnam call it Ho Chi Minh City. The original name call by Khmer was Prey Nokore.

    The Vietnamese are totally of Chinese descent. They are short,white slanted eyes and ugly. Until they were later mixed with Cham to the north and some khmer to the south(khmer krom).

    I STRONGLY think Cambodians and Filipinos are similar. I have plenty of Filipino friends and my ex was Filipino.

    The only thing that is different about us is religion, they’re Catholic and we’re Buddhist.

    Food is the same as well, Filipinos eat prahok and kapee … they call it bagoong, there is plenty of Cambodian dishes that are similar to Filipino dishes. Too many to name. Even dessert is the same … because I see the same desserts in a Filipino store as in a Cambodian store. We both LOVE seafood too!

    Dances are the same, they have rural, Maria Clara, mountain, tribal, and Muslim dances. Just like us Cambodians have Muslim, Tribal/Mountain, rural/folk and Classical dances. Similar dances … Tinikling is similar to Cambodian “Ang Rey” and Filipino and Cambodian tribal dances have similar attire. Oh Muslim dances are the same as well.

    Did you know Cambodia could’ve of been colonized by the Spanish. I read it up in a lot of Cambodian history books. It was before the French, and the Spaniards built a garrison/fort in Phnom Penh. The Cambodian king at that time needed help from the Spanish to protect themselves from Thailand and Vietnam. They converted the King and Queen into Catholics, but the Cambodians during the time strongly oppose Catholicism, they didn’t wanted to be forced into converting into Catholicism. So they had an uprise in Phnom Penh in kicking out the Spaniards in Cambodia. They killed most of the Spaniards and burn down the Spanish garrison in Phnom Penh and the remaining Spaniards fled to the Philippines. Who would of thought, we could’ve of been colonized by the Spanish and have Spanish last name? Would be funny to hear like Samnang De La Cruz or Bopha Garcia.

    Thats my point of view and history lesson for today!

    Tsinoy … I don’t know what Cambodian words you’re trying to say?

    But here is some more info about the Spaniards in Cambodia:

    1576 – 1599 THE SPANISH INTERLUDE

    |1576 – c.1594 Under constant attack from the Thais, King Satha, who rules Kambuja, seeks military support from the Spanish, who by this time are well established in southeast Asia.

    |1594 The Thais capture the new Cambodian capital at Lovek.

    |c. 1594 Satha is deposed. The usurper, Chung Prei, becomes king.

    |1596 A Spanish expedition arrives in Cambodia to aid King Satha against the Thais. They sack the Chinese quarter of Phnom Penh and kill the king and his son. They then march to Laos and take King Satha’s son, putting him on the Kambujan throne in Phnom Penh as King Barom Reachea II.

    |1599 The Kambujan court try to oust Reachea II in favor of King Satha’s brother, Soryopor, to rid Kambuja of Spanish influence. The inhabitants of the Spanish garrison in Phnom Penh are massacred and Soryopor takes control after a brief period of confusion when three princes occupy the throne. This marks the end of the Spanish influence in Cambodia.

    Ok, i think this word is similar in Indonesian and Khmer, “bong”. It means brother in Khmer and I think it means the same thing in Indonesian. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    BTW, I know for sure Champs are related to Indonesian b/c when I was in a camp in Indonesia there was this Champ family who can speak to the Indonesia soldiers there. They understood each other.
