text: When I heard the previous evening that the The-phong and Au-kheang morungs would go fishing at the river Sinyang and that Shiong and Chingtang wanted to participate in the event as well, I decided to go too. I had not been feeling too well for two days due to a cold but I did not want to let that stop me from taking up an opportunity for seeing a fishing excursion to a relatively close water. In the morning then I actually felt completely fresh and well and we started out at seven o'clock in the most wonderful weather.
