Recommended Posts

More than 10,000 people are expected to take part in today’s Royal Ploughing Ceremony to be held on a football field in Takeo province’s Daun Keo city.
Last week, the National Committee for Organising National and International Festivals announced that provincial Governor Ouch Phea and his wife Srey Punnadavy will play the roles of “King Meak” and “Queen Mehour” during a traditional performance for the event.

Mr Phea, who will lead a team of royal oxen to plough the field as King Meak, yesterday said he felt honoured that King Norodom Sihamoni had selected his province to stage this year’s event. Ms Punnadavy as Queen Mehour will follow her husband and scatter seed as he ploughs the field.

“We are so happy and greatly honoured that the King decided to choose our province to celebrate the Royal Ploughing Ceremony tomorrow,” Mr Phea said. “This year is the second time, after 1969, that the Takeo province was chosen to stage the ceremony.” “It is not only an honour for me as the governor, but for all the people in the province,” he added.
