How to backup your friendster?

Logging in back to Friendster for most of us who inevitably migrated to Facebook is like going back to our hometown only to find out that you are really in a ghost town. A place once busier than your city’s public market, now eerier than a grave yard.

Let’s face it, before FACEBOOK, you were once a Friendster-baby who once asked “penge testi!” [gimme testi(monial)]. Right? We were one of those peeps that stalks on somebody elses profile, then we realize FS has some feature (that we all want FB to have) which is the “Who’s viewed me

Too bad nothing good last forever. Friendster, once dominant social network, suggested to its user-base to back up their photos, comments, blogs and groups as the content would be deleted during a massive overhaul on May 31 2011.

So yeah, here goes the white flag. Friendster i should say is giving up it’s old social networking genre – and will be concentrating on a not-so populated market which is entertainment and gaming.

So much help from my khmer buddy… lol!

After downing a glass of extra joss, i saw my colleague preparing her hot water drink with some black seed… i asked what is it in english,  she doesnt know but she said its “Kruap Gee” or something like that in Khmer… another staff whose pregnant said it’s good for the health…

So yeah, i did try it out and it’s not so bad at all! it feels like jelly or something and tastes like tapioca pearl (sago)… this is way better than the ‘sago” they sell at the grocery… Speaking of grocery, i once saw the same thing at Lucky, i’ll probably check it out what’s it called in english, i’ll let you know!

Or should I say off-road biker in the making.

I’ve been longing to take a snap of these kids since we moved to our village but I never got a chance coz its either im in rush for work or these young riders are crazy swerving their way off the traffic for school!

I got this shot on my way home for lunch. Finally.

Truc De Fou Energy Drink in Phnom Penh

In a place where you’ll see numerous population of French people and interesting numbers of spell-bounding colonial houses, It’s not surprising that a French-made energy drink is also available here in Cambodia. This country was once known as “French protectorate of Cambodia” btw.

Truc de Fou is a French word which means “Crazy Thing” or “Crazy Stuff” (I really thought it was some Vietnamese drink because of the word “Truc” which is pronounced “Chook” which i really dont know what it means 😀

It’s brand name tells something about it’s taste — CRAZY! among all the energy drink that i’ve tried, this one’s epic… it’s citrus, probably Vitamin C-rich drink again (i cant really tell how much because it’s ingredients section is in FRENCH), it taste gingery (yeah GINGER), there is a woody or barrel taste in it which is weird 😐 I personally rate it 2.5/5…

1$ a can (25cl) at Angkor Store near Toul Tom Poung

EDIT:
Check this paintball video from Truc de Fou’s facebook page
Energy Drink = Extreme Sports = Paintball… EPIC!
