With Rumnea at tonight's 1-month celebration
Not sure about this. Tonight I joined a one-month birthday party for a tiny tot who was still struggling to open her eyes. I'm told this is a regular event after babies are born if the parents can afford it, though I'm not sure all the expense incurred with a newborn, from hospital bills to new clothes, really warrants a 1-month celebration. There were at least 100 people at the party in a restaurant near Olympic Stadium and copious amounts of food and drinks were consumed. Sounds like one celebration too many from the point of view of my wallet. Afterwards, I popped to Chinese House for the Asia Life re-launch party but by the time I left at 9.30pm it still hadn't started. Asia Life are re-launching it seems as they've tinkered with their magazine format and snuggled up closer to their Saigon counterparts. Nice of them to pop in a paragraph in their latest edition about the brand new Phnom Penh Crown football academy, which kicks-off on Monday at Olympic Stadium, where the first of 17 trials will be held, all over the country, to find the cream of the 13 and under aged talent in Cambodia. Exciting times ahead for the lucky 22 who will be chosen.
