It is well in my soulΒ 

It is well in my soul
It is well in my soul, Oh Lord
It is well….
It is well in my soul

“It is well in my soul” is a song that I compose for those who feel lost or upset with many things. While singing or playing that song, you would feel better.

I will upload cello music note in Youtube. Stay tune.

The Pearl of Cambodia: Conservative and Uniqueness

On 25th December 2017, we, the 44th Cambodian Participating Youth of the ShipΒ for Southeast Asian and Japanese Youth Program (SSEAYP), were invited to visit Phnom Penh City Center (PPCC), the Pearl of Cambodia.


It was such a good opportunity to learn on how thisΒ Boeung Kak area becomes a brand new city of business, leisure, and lifestyle forΒ over 56,000 residents by 2025.

Personally, as a Discussion Group 7 member (Resilent and Sustainable City Design), I was impressed by its vision, mission and development philosophy. As said, through the creation of new facilities and spaces, the development would create many opportunities for commerce, culture, arts and sports.

To me, I really wonder how its Central Park and walkway look like. What kind of transportation that could be access in that area? Can we find the conservative and uniquenessΒ in this Pearl of Cambodia? Recently, three things popped up in my mind.

First, I am thinking whether palm trees (Doem Thnoat – αžŠαžΎαž˜β€‹β€‹αžαŸ’αž“αŸ„αž) could be planted in that Central Park or not. In fact, these trees from the top to toes haveΒ played a very important role in our lives. However, I’ve never heard of palm trees park in Cambodia. What’s wrong with that trees?

Second is Romduol flower (Mitrellamesnyi – αž•αŸ’αž€αžΆβ€‹αžšαŸ†αžŠαž½αž›). Are they going to plant this kind of flowers along the walkway or in the Central Park. As known, this flowerΒ was proclaimed as the national flower of Cambodia. People can smell it both in the late afternoon and evening even in a long distance.

Third is our cyclocycle (Cyclos – Β αžŸαŸŠαžΈαžαŸ’αž›αžΌ ). Nowsaday, due to the development of Cambodia, Cyclos is almost in extinction. We rarely see it in Cambodia or everywhere in Cambodia. It is not well-known as Romork Kang Bey/ Tuk Tuk or Taxi meter. As I know, only the Cyclo Centre who is a local NGO providing basic support and social services to the drivers. If there is no NGO, howΒ cyclo drivers could be survived? How this cyclo could be conserved?

Conservative and uniqueness’concept could take part in building a city. You may know that a city can be built in many ways, however, without this concept, the next generation might not be able to experience what we used to.

What about the Tree of Remembrance? A Tree which is a symbol of peace, reconciliation and remembrance of the death and/or the Khmer rouge regime, can it be planted in that Pearl of Cambodia too? How many people that want to build a “City of Remembrance”? Let’s see.

#SSEAYPUnexpected without you!


  1. Do you remember the day we met?

Do you remember the day we smiled?

Do you give thank for this journey?

Are you happy for being with me here?

  1. You’ve never shared

You’ve never shared the dream that you had

Even though I’ve tried to be with you, right here!


Never had the same dream

The dream that you want to be

If you don’t tell me when we’re together

You said you’d be with me

But in term of reality

I will never make it through with you, even once


Once know many things go wrong

I know, you want to be alone

I know, you might be upset

I’ve tried to be by your side

But you’ve never let me in


  1. You make me hurt

You make me cry

You make me feel so lonely that’s why I know that

I will never have you all… all the time

My SSEAYP journey ends unexpectedly

Oh! Oh! ……………………..

After Kampot province, we went to Siem Reap province to conduct our Introductory Video (IV). I take part in the 60th Century where he is not. I got no chance to see him and so did he.Β 


That’s all for today.Β 

Many bad news. I am in DG 7 “Resilient and Sustainable City Design” where he is in DG4. We promise to stick together. In fact, everything is not in our hand. I start to feel that we have a contradict idea. Even though we walk or work together, there is a hidden wall between us. It’s because I am a Christian and his sister.Β

44th SSEAYP (I)

SSEAYP stands for The Ship for Southeast Asian Youth Program. Its main purpose isΒ to promote friendship and mutual understanding among the Japanese and Southeast AsianΒ youths.

I was hesitated in applying for that event. Anyway, this 2017 is my last chance. If I didn’t apply, I would have no more chance.

You know, while completing the application form, I came across with these three questions. It was such an inspiring question that motivated me to join this program.

  1. Describe the reasons why you want to participate in the program:

To be one of the Cambodian youth ambassadors is my main reason to join this program. I like promoting my culture and joining a discussion on social and youth matters. Moreover, I have never experienced staying on a ship or a home stay abroad. Lastly, as the next generation of the Khmer Rouge regime, I play a role as a model youth to other ASEAN’s youth members. I wish I can share my national reconciliation through nature’s concept and I hope they would feel proud of myself who was born as Cambodian.

  1. Describe your expectation of joining the program:

I wish I can build a strong network internally and externally. As known, this program is like a center where ASEAN youth ambassadors gather. Everyone has different strong personality and background. Due to a life on a ship, we are able to share our dream in contributing to our country and we will learn from each other. Moreover, I expect I can survive on the sea by avoiding homesick, seasick, or upset stomach. I expect my personal skill has been strengthen through team work. I am more confident, creative, initiative, positive and flexible. At last, from this program, I expect I can learn from a discussion on social and youth matters and I can get involved in community service and experience a unique home stay programme at each country.

  1. Describe your contributions to Cambodia after returning from the program:

I have got involved in many community services such as green lady cloth pads, cleaning up city (Let’s do it 2012) organized by JCI Cambodia, youth build volunteer organized by Habitat for Humanity Cambodia, HealthUnity project supported by VolCam, tree planting (Let’s Plant!) organized by JCI Chaktomuk, charity event organized by Help Our Community Club and so on. I do believe that after returning from the program, in cooperation with other ASEAN youth ambassadors, Lead Co-Lawyers section and Victim Support Section, as a symbol of peace, reconciliation and remembrance of the death and/or the Khmer rouge regime, the Tree (the tree of struggle, the tree of remembrance, the tree of pardon, the tree of love and the tree of reconciliation) could be planted at cooperative sites, executive sites, security centers and other necessary areas in Cambodia within a specific period of time. Such tree could also be planted specially at the campus of the Khmer Rouge Tribunal, school/university, ministry, Khmer Rouge’s memorial sites, or along the street and public/private garden in Cambodia. Peace, reconciliation and remembrance will be found in National Reconciliation through Nature because we all love nation and nature as ourselves.

Now, I’m here. I’m the 44th SSEAYP, batch 2017. I am blessed to be part of SSEAYP family. Unbelievable! I am the oldest. Anyway, I’m still 20 years old.

Can you find me in this photo?


I’m here with my boy-friend whom I’ve known since 2012, Year I, IFL (RUPP). We have come across with many challenges during our study at IFL (RUPP), research competitions and social work. He is a good friend and a partner. Thank for joining another fight with me.

Thank you Father that I have one to walk with me from 09th July – 12 December 2017. He is like my NaCello.

Looking forward to have fun time and face challenges with all of you.

God bless,

Henna Mao (12/07/2017)
