    Vicheara Houn Author of Bamboo Promise on life in Cambodia during Vietnam War

    in Self Help

    Napoleon Hill Foundation Certified Instructors Tom Cunningham (too tall) and Tim Chhim interviewed Vicheara Houn.

    Vicheara was born in  Phnom Penh, Cambodia in the peaceful days before the Khmer Rouge communist rebels engulfed this small Southeast Asian nation in four years of death and destruction. As the only child of a wealthy and politically prominent father, her young life was one of great contrasts. She went to University of Phnom Penh to study pharmacy and met her husband there. Their forbidden romance caused much conflict but eventually they prevailed and married in Janurary,1975 , four months before the Khmer Rouge took over and their lives turned upside down.

    All the residents of Phnom Penh, including Vicheara’s entire family, were forced out of their homes and expelled from the city in a mass exodus by the Khmer Rouge rebels. One by one, every member of Vicheara’s family starved to death.  Her young husband was murdered.

    Emaciated and alone, she managed to survive until 1979 when the Khmer Rouge was defeated by the Vietnamese and the survivors were liberated. Vicheara returned to her paternal home. She finished her pharmacy degree and made a daring escape to a refugee camp in Thailand. There she met the man who would become her second husband and they made their way to the US in 1984, where they had two children, a boy and a girl. She received her bachelor’s degree in chemistry. She later divorced and met her current husband in Portland , OR.

    Later, they moved to Arizona where Vicheara finished writing this first book, Bamboo Promise, to share her amazing story of survival with the world.

    LIVE! with Cathi---The lure of Travel!

    in Fitness


    I love Vivaldi's FOUR SEASONS.  Even though we're into fall it doesn't mean we have to curtail our desire to travel and you just may want to go beyond your bucket list of places and sites you want to discover.

    The world is filled with intriguing cities, beutiful sites and historic places that are a wonder to behold.  But how do you narrow the field when thinking about a special out-of-this world trip?

    How about a trip that's a bit off the beaten track.


    The choice is yours...etc.

    Cambodia, the 12th century...etc.

    Dark Hedges of Northern Ireland...etc.

    Thailand, the Grand Palace...etc.

    Argentina, beautiful waterfalls...etc.
