Dear Orly & Claus,
Thank you for your mails.
Like I informed with in my last mail, I had stayed at my home during the Pchum Ben time nearly 2 weeks, and I have just come back last Thursday. I got your last mail telling us about the Danish medical student who comes to visit here, I haven't heard about him yet. Maybes he was back Denmark.
About the kids, they are getting well as normal. Soon their aunt will start her selling new again. They are now starting their public school for the new grade, the girl grade 5 & the boy grade 6.
That Thursday, I gave the boy 32. 5 USD: 25$ to give his aunt to buy them extra-food & 7.5$ for his eating at SIS for another 2 weeks. I gave the money to their aunt to buy them food as I thought their aunt perhaps had something new for them, and what they bought were like you see in the photos. These all cost 25$ she told me and these were what they liked as well.
I will start my medical class on 15/10/2009, and for my English class; it is time to prepare for final exam of finishing semester one of year 4.
For the Pchum Ben time, I had a good time with my family. I also could help them some works & cooking as well as they were busy with selling, I was not a good seller, just a slow assistance.
I went my home village pagodas with my mother. Pchum Ben is a ceremony that we celebrate to dedicate good merit & food to our ancestors to help them because they could be keep in a bad place after death as a belief.
At the end, I wish you be fine and have a good weekend with the best regards from my family.
PS: When I was coming internet before this, the girl called me to ask to buy a new school bag. I will give her the money to buy.
