The Modern Day "Kulambo"!

This is my modern day "kulambo" (mosquito net)

I asked a Khmer friend of mine to buy it at Penh.  She bought it for $16.  This is actually a Thailand made product.  It's nice to note how our traditional Philippine "kulambo" had evolved into something cute and stylish. :)  I don't remember to have used it before or maybe if I did, I cannot remember (lol!) but seeing it from relatives and neighbors houses, my idea of a "kulambo" is that it is a very simple rectangular net from which each corner comes with a string attached into it to be tied up everywhere possible inside the bedroom solely for the purpose of protecting against mosquitoes.  During day time, it would be folded and stored and re install again during night time.  

But the modern day "kulambo", cute and stylish as it is...also serves for decorative purposes.  It's colorful design makes it an attractive sight inside the girl's bedroom.  You can choose a color to match your walls, curtains or bed sheets.  It would be good for your daughter's rooms too. :)

My simple post to complete my week end! (lol!) .....  :) 


  1. You're right, it's now stylish and decorative. I remember when we went to the Philippines for a vacation, I put my son (2 that time) inside the kulambo, and he screamed on top of his lung, so we ended up sleeping with fan focused on us and I had so many mosquito bites in the morning. I miss using kulambo, it's fun. thanks for coming to my site.

  2. Hi! Thanks for dropping by. I also saw your post on "kulambo". I find it cute that you're still able to preserve that photo! haha... Thanks again!

  3. Hi there! Thanks for your comment! I was using "kulambo" also when I was a kid, this one looks really nice, protected and stylish at the same time! I was able to used something like this when we went in Silay City, ang cute! Saan dito sa Phnom Penh iyan nabibili? Thank you! :)

  4. Hi Cheerful! Thanks for coming back here. First time ko din na nakita yan sa room ng friend ko sobrang I find it cute kaya nagpabili ako sa kanya. She said she bought it at the Central Market. That comes in variety of colors, yung sa friend ko blue...cute din. Thanks again!
