4 best friends enjoy a moment of female bonding. LtoR: Ameas, Leakha (birthday girl), Amean, Neang
A birthday bash last night made a pleasant change from the wedding parties I normally get invited to. Since I've moved to Phnom Penh to live, I've been invited to about a dozen wedding celebrations, so a birthday party at a local city restaurant, Happy World, was a nice diversion. Much the same format, free food and drink flowed all night, but the dancing didn't materialize as everyone had drunk so much, they could hardly stand up after the usual party string, sparklers and balloons had heralded the decorated cake for the birthday girl Leakha, who was celebrating her 22nd anniversary. A good time was had by all.
