In full swing

Bride Anny and guest Rumnea hog the camera, and rightly so
The Khmer wedding season is in full swing and Anny, my favourite supervisor at Cafe Fresco on St 51 was the center of attention at the Mekong Russey Keo restaurant tonight. Having tied the knot earlier in the day, the party went with a bang including on-stage karaoke from the bride and her bridesmaids later in the evening. They sounded pretty good as well. I hope she and her hubby have a Christmas to remember. I've just had some news that will bring me less grief in 2012 but I'll report on that when it's all done and dusted sometime in the next few months. Let's just say that it gave me many headaches over the course of this year but will be one less tie to my former life back in Blighty.

Fancy getting inspired? Soma Norodom will be giving a hour-long lecture to students and the public at the Royal University of Phnom Penh, Department of Media & Communication, on Friday 6 January 2012 (9.30-11am). The lecture will cover her experiences, both professional and personal, back in the USA, as a writer, journo, sports commentator and actress, and now as a talk show host in Cambodia. She currently hosts the PUC Talk Show every evening on 90.0FM from 7pm. Soma is a consummate pro and I speak from experience. She certainly did her homework when she invited me onto her radio talk show back in September and made me very comfortable. I felt we could've chatted for much longer than the show's one and half hours. My appearance on the show will be replayed on 90.0FM from 7pm on New Year's Eve (Saturday 31 December). A nice way to see out 2011.
