  • The Tale of the Haunted Cupboard

    Bronwyn Sloan

    What woke me up I don't know. I just remember realizing there was someone in my house who shouldn't be there, and glancing over to see a robber almost within touching distance going through an antique wardrobe a friend had just left when she went back to Australia.

    She saw me the same time as I saw her. I froze and waited for a knife or a gun, but thankfully she just ran into the night.

  • Le Cedre - a taste of Lebanon

    Mitchell Isaacs

    The diversity and quality of the international cuisine available in Phnom Penh is a constant source of surprise and excitement to me, however cuisine from the Middle East has been notably under-represented.

    Needing some sort of pick-up after the aftermath of a rowdy Friday night, I was glad to be going to the opening of Phnom Penh's new Lebanese restaurant, Le Cedre. Greeted by the owners in the stylish front garden, I was quickly ushered to the outdoor dining section, and poured a sharp, but very drinkable red from Lebanon.
    More photos of Le Cedre are available in the EAS Photo Gallery.
