Like most of countries in the world, Cambodian people also believe in things which doesn’t relate to each other and it’s what we call a Superstition. Cambodia is one of the most superstitious nation in Asia, we believe in many superstition, but here are some of them which are known throughout the country.

  • If you dream about snake, your ideal person is coming soon.
  • If you and your friend smell the same flower one after another, both of you will share your future husband in some way.
  • If you sing while you are cooking, you will marry a widow or widower.
  • Cambodian men and women usually count the sound of the gecko crying in order to check out about their future husband or wife. If you are a girl, you will start counting it by saying “Bachelor” at the first sound of the gecko and say “ Widower “ at the second sound. If you end up with bachelor, your future husband will have been a bachelor man before he marry you, and if you end up with widower, your will marry a widower.
  • Some Cambodian people would not eat Trey Dom Rey ( one kind of fish), because they believe that  Fish was a pity mother who died and born again as a fish in order to look after her daughter who was oppressed by the step-mother. (but some of us eat the fish).
