End of a story

Monday, December 31st, 2007

The house of E’Phutang, ex-World Champion Khmer Boxing and actor, was dismantled by 7NG company employees this morning. It seems he gets away with a fairly good deal and will relocate in the new housing provided by 7NG near Chom Chhao. All of the training pictures of my book Poids Mouche were taken there…

Safe for the next 3 years.

You weren’t able to access my website for the last couple of days? No wonder: The payment for my domain name was not renewed… It was done by Matthew at Magnum until now. Matthew has left Magnum so no more domain name renewals it seems. I’ll take over from here… So everything should be OK […]

Was warned too late that the people from Borei Keila (yet another place in Phnom Penh where real estate is changing hands) were being evicted forcefully this morning at 5:00 am. When I arrived the lot was empty save for angry officials…

Seasonal Stuff

Saturday, December 22nd, 2007

My story on handicapped volleyball has made it on Magnum’s homepage.  I did spend some more time at Dey Krohom. And I had to change shirts  several times due to collateral damage caused by poorly aimed plastic bags of  gook thrown at the thugs trying to evict the inhabitants.  AND I finally managed to get […]

Power struggles…

Friday, December 21st, 2007

Sorry the weblog was not updated lately but the reason is simple: no power at home. And without power no Internet… The famous crooks at Electricité du Cambodge dropped by yesterday morning, when no one was at home and they put the electricity bill (0,18$ per Kw!!!) in the letterbox, cut off the power, took away […]

Was shooting at Dey Krohom again today (VIJ2007044G).The DVD with the last set of volleyball pictures, the second set of pictures of Un Barrage Contre le Pacifique, etc… should be delivered by FEDEX at the Paris office today… My overhauled website will be launched some time end of this week. Shannon Ghannam was the first one […]
