Sophea on stage

Sophea Chamroeun on stage with Children of Bassac
It was my final visit to the dentist today to fit a crown that has been five visits in the making. I respect the work they do, but heck, I hate going to the dentist now as much as it scared the living daylights out of me when I was a kid. A word on the folks at Roomchang, they run a very professional ship and the quality of care was excellent, but they aren't cheap, as my bank balance will testify. This evening, it was off to Chayyam restaurant on Street 278 for some of my favourite fish amok as it's easy on the teeth and surprise, surprise, as part of their 4-times a week taste of Khmer culture, there was one of the best young dancers in the country, Sophea Chamroeun, from Children of Bassac, on stage. Sophea, as well as strutting her stuff with the Bassac show every Thursday at the national museum, also dances at Chayyam when she can. The restaurant puts on both music and dance performances every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 7.30pm. And their fish amok is really good too.
