Jason Williams’ (Michael Angarano) obsession with kung fu movies leads him to an antique store, where he finds an ancient Chinese staff. When he grabs hold of the stick, he is transported back in time, where he meets the drunken martial-arts master Lu Yan (Jackie Chan), the Silent Monk (Jet Li) and the beautiful Golden Sparrow (Crystal Liu Yi Fei), who all help Jason return the staff to its rightful owner, the Monkey King, who has been imprisoned by the nefarious Jade Warlord (Collin Chou).

Changing Books

this evening i went to nicole’s house in order go to change the books. actually, i’m not suppose to change it because it is a gift from my brithday. however, nicole wants me to see other books. she afraid the books that she choose are not what i want. therefore, we go to B&N. nicole find one book call “Running a Restaurant for Dummies”. i think this book is the right choice for me. i hope i can learn something new about this book, though i don’t have any experiences with me. it might help me if my real business open. hehe…

Here is some detail about Khmer New Year

Cambodian New Year or Chaul Chnam Thmey in the Khmer language, literally “Enter the New Year”, is the name of the Cambodian holiday that celebrates the new year. The holiday lasts for three days, most commonly, from April 13th to 15th, although Khmer living in other countries may change the dates so as to celebrate on the weekend. Sometimes the holiday falls between the 14th to 16th of April. This time of the year represents the end of the harvesting season. The farmers enjoy the fruits of their harvest and relax before the rainy season begins.

Moha Songkran

Moha Songkran is the name of the first day of the new year celebration. It is the ending of the year and the beginning of a new one. People dress up and light candles and burn incense sticks at shrines. The members of each family pay homage to offer thanks for the Buddha’s teachings by bowing, kneeling and prostrating themselves three times before his image. For good luck people wash their face with holy water in the morning, their chests at noon, and their feet in the evening before they go to bed.


Wanabat is the name of the second day of the new year celebration. People contribute charity to the less fortunate, help the poor, servants, homeless people, and low-income families. Families attend a dedication ceremony to their ancestors at the monastery.

Tngai Laeung Saka

Tngai Laeung saka is the name of the third day of the new year celebration. Buddhist cleanse the Buddha statues and elders with perfumed water. Bathing the Buddha images is the symbol that water will be needed for all kinds of plants and lives. It is also thought to be a kind deed that will bring longevity, good luck, happiness and prosperity in life. By bathing their grandparents and parents, children can obtain from them best wishes and good advice for the future.

There are a lot of games during khmer new year such as Bos Angkunh, Chol Chhoung, Leak Konseng, Chab Kon Kleng, 3-1, Ror Tes Pleng Bok Khnea, and more. normally, we always have music and dance. hehe…
