In this round in Khmer class, we were learning about one famous story in Cambodia that called “ Kolab Pailin ”. This story was written by Nhok Them in 1936. It’s a romantic story and also talking about a life in French Colonial administration. This story is talking about one person name Chao Chet a man who travels from Sangke district to Pailin district in Battambang province which was on the Kingdom’s western border to work as a gold miner. Chao Chet has lost his family but he never gives up. He moves from his parents’ hometown and asks a man, [Loung] Ratanak if he can live with him. Chao Chet is poor He works hard but always respecting his boss. All his words come from the bottom of his heart.
