–Tong Teur-Tae (Kong Saharat & Benz Pornchita, Boy Pissanu)
Date of commencement: May 31, 2008
English title: “Virtuous Tong” It was kinda hard to translate the title because it’s a play on words. Tong Neur Tae means real gold from the elements. Tong is also the name of the n’ek and means gold. I wasn’t sure if I should translate Tong or leave it as is. Tong Neur Tae represents n’ek, she is the precious gold–the real thing. Gold is a substance that can not be tarnish by the elements. It can be bury by rubble for centuries and when found, you can wash the dirt away. The same concept also implies to virtuous people. Good people can be buried/stained by false rumors and negative social elements but because they remain virtuous their reputation will be vindicated and cleared.
