    I saw this second chime when I was in primary, secondary and high school but I don’t know they still use it or not. hopefully they will have a modern bell in each building. 🙂

    what’s wrong with the old chime? lolzzzz

  4. That’s a great chime! It really makes me miss my school day!

    Correction! I don’t think any school use unexploded shell as chime, I think is is exploded or at least deactivated. I think these work better than the modern bell kekek

    Hhaha. You are right, Borin. It used to be an active UXO but not when it was hung there. The UXO was disposed, I guess, by non-expert. Many Cambodians make their living by disposing UXOs and selling the shells. Many have died of it.

    Thank for correction!!

    Phors, I guess we all want to hear it when we are in class but not when you are outside. keke

    Rotha, ニコンでの仕事はどうですか。まだオリエンテーションの所でしょうか。ちなみに、ニコン職員はニコン製品を安く手に入れますか。:D またいつかカンボジアに遊び来て。
