Chamroeun and Kanhchana at their wedding party
This weekend is a quiet one, with no football on the agenda though I attended a wedding party last night with Rumnea that was football linked. It was the post-nuptials for Chamroeun and his bride, Kanhchana at one of the Koh Pich wedding halls. Chamroeun is the sports editor for the Khmer edition of the Phnom Penh Post and we've known each other since I started watching football at the Olympic Stadium (and writing the footy reports for the Post). He used to work for the French paper Cambodge Soir before it sank and he moved onto the Post. It was a well-attended event and the ceremony halls at Koh Pich don't come cheap. He's a big Arsenal fan so I fully expected him to wear his Arsenal football kit at some point in the proceedings, but was sadly disappointed. I have another wedding party to attend next weekend when Samnang and Veasna tie the knot and their invitation card is the most inventive I've ever seen. The groom is pictured wearing buffalo horns. I can't wait to see what surprises take place at the actual event.
