Small stories

Shot two small stories.. VIJ2008033 is about an NGO organising an education forum where students could meet and check on a variety of universities. Ka-set had its first PR operation ever there!!! There were also some relay races.

Then shot story VIJ2008034: a young cambodian entrepreneur launching his own softdrink brand.

  2. Small story: few pics…

    They say it has 50% less than Classic Coke. But still too sweet for my taste. But the guys running the show are really touching…

    damn, that is a “small” story, but i loved reading it…my french is still pretty bad (disappearing) but i like reading ka-set…

    by the way, to me, a story about a young Cambodian creating his own cola is not “small”: maybe quite big: Cambodians not only seen as “suffering under the long, horrible grave of history”…i think it’s a brilliant story:

    GIVE ME MORE PICS! :))

  5. That kid must have been 12 in 2006. The entrepreneur is fortyish.
