Offices of the Ministry of Cults and Religions have been transferred to local investment company Pheapimex in a property deal that some observers say is an example of the malfeasance that characterises the Kingdom’s public land management.
Speaking on the condition of anonymity, officials from the Ministry of Cults and Religions’ National Committee for Organising National and International Festivals said they had received a letter from Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) lawyer Khiev Sepphan dated last Friday that asked them to vacate their offices on Sisowath Quay by the end of the month.
“If you do not follow this notification, the lawyer will make a report to the CPP office to pursue further measures,” read the letter, a copy of which was obtained by the Post.
Well well well. Where do I begin? That title probably has all the avid readers (all two of you) intrigued…..but before I jump into that fiasco, i’ll back track a bit on what we’ve been doing since the last entry.
We spent out last day in Bangkok in the Siam square district, shopping and revelling in the chaos of Bangkok. We found a gourmet food supermarket which was, as you may guess, Daryns idea of heaven so we spent alot of money getting heaps of tasty bits and pieces for a picnic..it was sooo good.
We went out for a few drinks on our last night in Bangkok and Daryn played numerous games of pool with a lovely Thai man and no, he did not lose anymore money. I went home before him but must have been sleeping too deeply as when he came home and tried to get me to wake up I ‘didn’t hear a thing, so he spent the night sleeping downstairs on the couch - I think much to the amusement of the guest house staff.
Bangkok was really good fun this time around, and Daryn really enjoyed his first experience of this part of the world. It is crazy and hectic but touristy enough to ease you into your trip slowly.
