Nick Faldo was effervescent in his praise for his own Faldo-designed course at the Angkor Golf Resort (above) in Siem Reap. But then again, he would wouldn't he. Read more here.

Another of the big-guns, in this case, Kith Meng, the ultra-smart Cambodian business-tycoon, makes the front cover of Forbes magazine and the read is an interesting one, following closely behind a rare interview with Sokimex and Sokha supremo Sok Kong in yesterday's Cambodia Daily, though any talk of his company's contract to run the Angkor concession was conspicuous by its absence. Here is the Kith Meng article.
Anlong Veng, the Pol Pot regime and the Khmer Rouge Tribunal is never far from the newsmedia these days. Here is the latest look at the past and the future in Cambodia's former KR stronghold, in Japan's leading Asahi Shimbun paper.
There's obviously a stack more news, but I'm very selective in the stories I share with you and prefer to let other sites and blogs handle the rest.
