Last time we went to Hong Kong Disneyland with the boys, my eldest, Aidan, commented that “Disneyland is for Girls.” He thought the place was Princess-centric and they couldn’t even buy anything from the stores. It became an internal joke among my sons but that is about to change.
I’m excited to bring them back this 2017. With the addition of the Iron Man Experience, the World’s first Marvel-themed ride in Disneyland, and the Star Wars takeover of Tomorrowland, Hongkong Disneyland is now for boys!
Here’s a complete guide on how to plan your own awesome trip…
Damnak Lounge is considered to be the best Fine Dining restaurants in Siem Reap. The menu celebrates the marriage of bold Khmer spices with the finesse of French cooking techniques.
In a city that is flooded with millions of tourist a year, mediocrity amongst restaurants can be a big problem. All too often tourist may visit a popular restaurant expecting the best gastronomic feast they ever had, or at least, a taste of authentic local cuisine. Sadly that isn't always the case.
Damnak Lounge, however, is one of those restaurants that will meet any food lovers expectations. We were blown away by the quality of the food they served and the passion that went into every dish.
If you ever find yourself visiting Siem Reap and want good quality Khmer Cusine, we recommend giving Damnak Lounge a try.

Phare: The Cambodian Circus is a mixture of theater, modern dance, and acrobatics, expertly choreographed to tell a captivating story which combines Cambodian folklore and history into a show for all ages.
Eight different programs are rotated monthly. We were fortunate enough to catch Influence. A story about survival, domination, manipulation, and ultimately – redemption.
The history behind Phare and its inception is one of the more, amazing aspects of this incredible social enterprise. Shortly after the Fall of the Khmer Rouge in 1994, a handful of Cambodian refugees found their way home and founded Phare Ponleu Selpak, an NGO School of the Arts in Battambang Cambodia.
Around twelve hundred students each year, receive free public education from kindergarten to 12th grade. There is also free Professional Level Arts training in dance, music, theater, animation, graphic design, illustration, painting, and circus.
The Circus launched 3 years ago as a means for PPS to help generate income, provide employment for graduates, and share Cambodian/Khmer Culture.
We were amazed at the creativity and talent of the performers and surprised at how funny and powerful the story was. We encourage anyone visiting Siem Reap to make the time and experience Phare.

Poke refers to a raw fish salad or sushi bowl with Asian-inspired sauces. The name is a Hawaiian verb that means “to cut crosswise into pieces”.
Every new year starts with a resolution to eat more healthy and to become a better version of yourself. So we’re kicking off the year with a healthy bowl of Poke and send out healthy vibes to all our OAP friends.
