Amazing how they have a pair of baby mittens on already before they've even tied off the umbilical cord. I wasn't even aware of their existence till I moved here, I don't believe they are used so much in the west. I guess they fit in well with the woolly hats the infant and mother will be wearing for the next month or so.

I like that, very Cambodia. Also, though her face is mainly obscured, that smile on the lady comforting her is gold.

She's probably thinking about all the likes she's going to get from the photo she just uploaded to Facebook.

The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

A few months back I was chatting to mate n he was talking about how his Vietnamese wife extended family wants to move to Australia, and we were talking about how they don't understand how hard shit is here without n education... I see photos like this n question living in Australia knowing the pressure of just Keeping a roof above your head, n I wonder what's better, good medical n social system but high cost of living and no community, or a good community n lower costs of living....

If you're living over here in Cambodia you've answered your own question

OMG that's just put me off my breakfast, It must has stung a bit, can't imagine trying to shit out something as big as that baby.
I'm jealous of the baby though, it's got more hair than me !!!!!

Good luck too both of them.
