That's terrible. Your life sounds like the premise to a movie. How long were you in that camp?

3 years and the Malay government refused to accept our plea for asylum. When the Pol Pot sent people to death camps the family was separated, each ran on their own path. My father fled to Hong Kong after escaping the death camp, and that was how he later brought us to the city. My mother moved back to Phnom Penh after the war, trying to find a purpose in life, brought my sister and I with her. But only a few years we moved back to Hong Kong again.

My life experience is neither unique nor worst. Every Cambodian have and had this story.
