Wondrous Words Wednesday

Wondrous Words Wednesday

My words today are taken from the book: The Shadow of The Banyan  By  Vaddey Hatner

Kamaphibal- are the Khmes Cadres and soldiers. The Cadres include holders of advanced degrees.

Achar- is a mixture of pickled fruits and vegetables with many styles.

  3. That is a mouthful - I don't think I'll ever have the chance to use it. The company my husband works for actually uses the term cadre.

  4. I've seen achar around, but wouldn't have been able to say what was in it. Exotic and new words for us this week...
