Khmer Saying : សុភាសិតខែ្មរ: កាលដែលឈឺធ្ងន់ យកដំរីទៅបន់​ ដល់​ជម្ងឺ​ស្រន់​ យកពង​មាន់​ទៅ​ថ្វាយ

This is the Khmer Saying to share all Cambodian and others  with a brief explanation. You will find out all the words are useful and meaningful.

1. សីលធម៌​ និង សាសនា (Moral and Religion Khmer Saying)

Khmer word : កាលដែលឈឺធ្ងន់ យកដំរីទៅបន់​ ដល់​ជម្ងឺ​ស្រន់​ យកពង​មាន់​ទៅ​ថ្វាយ

Khmer spelling : (kal dael chheu thgnun yok damrey tov bron', dorl' jumngeu srorn' yok pong moan tov thvay)

English by Khmer: (time that sick serious take elephant go to pray for, when illness lessen take eggs chicken go for offering)

English Description: You are seriously ill and you promise to offer an elephant, as soon as you recover, it's only an egg. By the way, what happens with your offering? As a rule it belongs to the persons living in the place of offering - house or pagoda - but nobody would dare to take from it as long as the incense sticks accompanying it are still burning.
