Nerves a jangling

It's the big footy match in a few hours. Cambodia take on Brunei at 2pm and must win to progress to the finals of the Suzuki Cup in December. As the host team, the crowd expectation of Cambodian success will be high but Brunei can progress too and have already proved to be tough opponents in the five team qualifying competition that has been taking place over the last two weeks at the Olympic Stadium. In striker Mohd Shahrazen Said they have the one player who has caught my eye in the games I've watched. Cambodia themselves have done well in patches and played poorly in others. Today, they need to be on top of their game, display passion and desire to win and they might just do it. Come on Cambodia!
Just had confirmation that my brother Tim will be winging his way over to Cambodia from the UK on 5 November for a few weeks. Our previous trips to Ratanakiri and Laos were great fun, so this time around we may head down to the south coast area to see how things are shaping up down there. Stay tuned.
On the way to the Tiara Delgado film screenings at Meta House last night, I popped into my local bar, the Red Orchid on Street 278 in BKK1, for a bite to eat. Apparently I'm the only regular who never drinks alcohol! The owners are a lovely wife and husband team, with three great kids and bar staff who all make a visit there a very pleasant experience. Here's a photo of The 3 A's, a trio of young female bar staff, who joined the team a couple of months go and are settling in well.
