Koraka Tevy arrived at 8:07 am in the morning of 14 April – Cambodian time. She is the second daugher of Kabil Moha Prum. People in Cambodia have prepaired and decorated their houses also with special gifts to welcome the new year angel.
What are the offering to welcome the new year angel?
The offerings in command are simple:
5 incense sticks, 5 candle (ទៀន៥ធូប៥)
A pair of decorated young banana tree (ស្លាធម៍កូនចេក១គូ)
3 kinds of fruits, each kind prepared into 2 trays
Small jasmine flower braids to put on every offering
And the special offering for Koraka Tevy is her favorite food, cooking oil(តេលំ)
Beside those required offerings, you can prepare as many other offerings as you like such as: candy, cokes, biscuits, milk, etc. (Source)
