Waiters on the Run ( course de garçons de café)

Siem Reap, Cambodia-
Angkor W Restaurant Collection is proud to be organizing the 2015 Waiters’ Race (course de garçons de café) in celebration of Bastille Day (France’s National Day) on the 14th of July, beginning and ending at King’s Road Angkor Village, Siem Reap.

The origin of the waiters’ race (course de garcons de café) began in France and races were designed to improve the recognition of the waiter’s profession in Paris. The concept is very simple: waiters have to
race as fast as possible holding a loaded tray while avoiding spilling its contents. We aim to create a fun event for the hospitality community that motivates waiters and waitresses to showcase their talents through friendly competition. Last year’s race attracted 80 competitors from a wide range of Siem Reap based businesses. 

The race starts at 4:30pm with all contestants wearing their own working uniform. Competitors will balance a loaded tray while racing through the 1.3km course that goes around the Pub Street/ Old Market area of central Siem Reap. Contestants will be timed on both speed and balance as any spillage results in a penalty being added to their overall time. Challengers will not be allowed to refill or change the contents of their tray during the race. 

Angkor W would like to officially welcome all the public and prospective participants to come and enjoy the entertainment on the day.
Contestant registration is $7 p.p. (includes a souvenir T-shirt) and participants must be from the hospitality service industry.

My friend and highschool batchmate is a USANA member and gave me samples of one of their skin care line product- Sense Beautiful Science. She gave them for free for me to try it out and make a review about it. Below are the set of products sample packs I received.
She gave me 3 packs of the sample sets.

Each of the sample pack contains a manual instruction insert and 5 sachets of each of the basic sets of the product line. First from the top Gentle Daily Cleanser, Hydrating Toner, Daytime Protective Emulsion, Perfecting Essence and Eye Nourisher. Each sachet contains 2ml.

A closer look.

Quick Review: Mistine Cosmetics Thailand

Mistine is a direct selling cosmetics company from Thailand. It is my first time to hear and try this brand when I came here in Cambodia. Mistine is very similar with Avon where in they have a wide range of products not only for beauty concerns but also for health and home and lifestyle.
I have seen independent sellers for this brand on facebook but they were mostly for pre-order basis as they will still be coming from Thailand. I had tried posting orders from one famous online shop but didn't get good results as they had me waiting but nadda. Nothing came. And then finally, I found a visible and tangible cosmetics shop that sells Mistine items-----> Lum Orng Cosmetic Online Shop. I went ahead to look for the address. As soon as I entered the shop, a lady with a warm smile welcomed me. Chovy, Lum Orng's sister (owner of the shop), showed me all the items and let me try them all with the testers. Since then, I have been a regular customer of theirs because they're custo…
