Angkor Wat carved on a watermelon
Due to its fine and intricate patterns, it took me many days to finish it.
I am pleased with the result despite the fact that I was cross-eyed for a while

I carved this for a friend's birthday
and you know what, she was thrilled with it.

Chocolate_Shoe__Rose

This life-size shoe, the shoe platform, the rose & leaves, the bowl and
the card are made of chocolate, and of course the chocolate truffles

I know, some of you might think to yourself:  'but, this is not Khmer'. You're absolutely right to have thought so. Chocolaty arts belong to the Western world.  However, I've decided to include it on this website because this work of art was made by me - a Khmer person.  I feel comfortable about it - the same way as some Westerners who have created a website about fruit carvings. As we all know, fruit carvings belong to the Oriental culture. So, it is alright, isn't it,  to have some cultural exchange from time to time. It's about sharing, right? ... as a song goes: 'We are the world ...'

The house where my husband was born and brought up in.
I carved this on a watermelon to celebrate his parents' Golden Anniversary.
