By the Tonle Bati river, in Takeo Province, a historical tourist site. I am enjoying the fresh air in a comfortable place. Suddenly, four poor kids appear and ask for money.
Kids: Venerable, please give me money to buy food.
Sopich: How much do you need?
Kids: Depends on you.
Sopich: Do you know what is needed to get money?
Kids: Hehe, I don’t know.
Sopich: If you want money, you have play rock-paper-scissors with me. If you win, you get 500 riel.
Kids: No, I can’t.
Sopich: Nothing is given for free. I’m giving you a chance, why don’t you just try?
Suddenly, one of the children decides to give it a try, but the three others don’t. Finally, she wins, so she gets 500 riel.
Sopich, to the others: Do you want to try?
The kids are still shy, but they decide to play. However, they all lose. They cannot get money. Although I want to give, I won’t.
Sopich: You see. Only the smart and the educated people win, so please build up yourself to win in your life and not be a beggar anymore.
