Houses under Sand


Lakeside pumping is a hot issue that appears in most media since the previous week.

Development company Shukaku Inc is pumping sand into Boeung Kak Lake area and some houses are already under the sand. Sooner or later, you will not see those houses in the area.

Today, my professors, my classmates and I have spent our lunchtime to ride motors to the place in the hope of seeing what is happening before it’s too late.

Some photos and videos below are what my friends and I shot to share to some of you who don’t have chance to go to the scene.

Coming from a simple family in Kampot province of Cambodia, I’ve spent most part of my teenage years in learning and working. Through those experiences, I’ve built myself up from the ground and finally, become an entrepreneur running a media production company with my co-founder.

I believe that no matter situation or position we are in, we can be great at what we are doing and get what we want when we put our heart and soul into that.
