Happy Birthday Beth!(A bit late to say so as I've just checked your blog today)

In Cambodia we say "Rirk reay tgnai kourp komnert" or, like the khmer script you display," Soursdey tgnai kourb komnert!".

The word "Birthday" in Khmer would be " tgnai komnert".(Tgnai=day, Komnert=birth)

Yeah, usually we have party, with cake and presents. It's a new culture-well, western culture to be exact. But it's really fun.

By the way, your daughter sara is adorable.

Happy birthday, Beth, and many happy returns from a fellow Capricorn.

Hi Beth, Happy belated birthday!The whole four months that I was at Wat Opot we never celebrated any birthdays. But, most of the kids did not know when they were born and went by the Khmer New Year. I will see what I can find out.
