Oun Sambath and Chomran

Sambath’s mother would often have dreams about a snake coming to protect her family. When Sambath was 3 months old, his mom found a snake (about thumb sized) coiled under her son’s bed. They took the snake out released it into the bushes, but a couple of weeks later they found that the snake had returned. They took that as a good sign and decided to keep the snake. They named her Chomran, which means good luck.

Sambath and Chomran grew up together. They sleep together, eat together, play together and they even talk to eachother. Chomran even has her own room. They believe that Chomran has special powers that protect their family from illness and harm. 

Many wildlife protectors, police officials and movie makers tried to take away this pet snake from Sambath and put it in a zoo, but the snake boy said, “I will not let anyone take her away from me, either. I love her very much,” while kissing his beloved pet on the head.

21 Things Nobody Tells You About Being Depressed


I get asks occasionally related to the Depression Guide I wrote to help you guys write more realistic characters, and I wanted to say from personal experience that this Buzzfeed article really resonates. I normally disagree with points on their lists, but for this one, everything is completely correct to the point where I wonder if there’s a mini reporter in my head relaying that information to their writers. It’s actually kind of creepy.

Anyway, helping you guys makes me happy, so hopefully this is helpful.
