Into the light

I missed the opening of the new Chhim Sothy exhibition at Meta House last night. Grrr. I always enjoy his work, with a particular leaning towards his traditional style I must admit, but he is a fabulous artist whether its traditional or contemporary. His latest showing, From Darkness to Light, can now be seen and focuses on the trauma that he experienced during his childhood. I will get there pronto.
Meanwhile, tickets for Monday's 2nd comedy club asia night at Pontoon have gone on sale at The Flicks, the only venue in town where you can buy them. You can also pay on the door, on the night. The 2nd show, without compere Jonathan Atherton, shouldn't suffer too much according to the organisers, as 3 excellent funnymen have been booked to raise the roof. Aggressive Australian comic Brendon Burns and Canada’s surrealist Phil Nichol, will be supported by rising stand-up Jimmy McGhie of England. It costs $10 a pop with a free beer thrown in and doors open at 7pm. If it matches the 1st gig, it'll be well worth it.
This afternoon the Cambodian U-21 football team are scheduled to get a thrashing at the hands of the successful Malaysian U-23s. Well, that's what it looks like on paper. Malaysia are very much top dogs in the region when it comes to this age-level of football. Next month they will begin life in the Singapore League and will use today's game as a warm-up for their upcoming campaign. They recently topped the class in the Asean region by winning the SEA Games. At the same time, Cambodia came home with their tail between their legs losing all four games and looking a sorry sight. I don't expect any better today either.
