I have been keeping this video secret for almost 8 months, but I think it’s time to release it now. I’m going to share with you the most important video I made so far while traveling, the one I have worked the most for, and also the most meaningful to me.
It is a lipdub (a video where numerous people are lip-syncing on a song) that I made in an Angkorean Temple with 300 Cambodian Kids from the local primary school of Krasang Roleung near Siem Reap, Cambodia.
I believe it’s the first lipdub made with 300 kids as well as one of the first made in South East Asia in general.
I want to tell you why this video is so special to me. It’s a VERY long story. You’ll learn all the difficulties we went through to make the lipdub, how the kids reacted when they saw it, why and how I chased Angelina Jolie but eventually talked to Brad Pitt. And most importantly, what important lesson in life I learnt from that experience. So get some popcorn and enjoy the ride.

I said I would send postcards from North Korea to my blog readers. Done ! Here’s the proof !
Hi guys. I’d like to do a review of the Saphai pae hostel where I’m staying in Bangkok. I came there in February 2011 for the first time, and I know it’s the only place where I’ll be staying from now on when I come to Bangkok.
Hi guys, just to let you know I’ll be travelling to North Korea, one of the most mysterious country of the world from Sept 3rd to Sept 10th. If you like collecting postcards from around the world, I can send you one from there and I think it’s a pretty rare opportunity. For that, you just need to:
- like my facebook page (it makes me happy !)
- send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org mentionning your name (and the one used on facebook if different) and your address
Don’t hesitate to share this to your friends ! A limited offer to the first 100 requests only !
Update August, 22th at 6:40AM: I am over 100 requests already but because so many people would like to receive one, keep sending your requests and I’ll try to send as many as I can while I’m in North Korea, depending on the cost and time I have.
After movies in 3D, come movies in 4D. The first movie theater to feature this technology opened in South Korea, then Mexico and Bangkok on June 29th, 2011. Even in the United States, there’s no movie theater of this type yet. This video introduces to this new technology, and also presents the Siam Paragon Cineplex in Bangkok, where it is possible to watch movies in very nice conditions that do not exist in France.

Today, I took a taxi to go to the thailand border Poipet from Siem Reap, to renew my visa. To share the cost, taxi drivers pack as many people as they can in the car. Didn’t expect to be 9 people in it. And 2 in the driver’s seat ! For 3 hours !
During April 2011, for the Khmer new year, ACODO children went on tour for 2 weeks in the South of Cambodia. I met them in Sihanoukville, a city near the coast. They performed their show in several villages around to raise some funds. In the day, they walked from a house to another wishing a happy new year. In the evening, they played their one hour long show in front of a crowd. A mammoth task !
If you like to dive and want to get your PADI or SSI (it’s like your diving licence) so you can dive freely anywhere in the world, the cheapest place to pass it is in Koh Tao in Thailand. There are many diving schools on the island.
