Kingdom of Cambodia 2020: Part 8 – A Great Delicious Malaysian Lunch At Café Malaya

(Is there something called the perfect lunch? In Cambodia, this probably be the case with a good dose of sambal with sizable prawns, fish, chicken, vegetables and yes, the good old kangkung and this is a buffet so we can go for another round)

After the end of our self-isolation and getting down to our real work in Cambodia, we by now have established a routine when it comes to having our lunch at our workplace.

One of the promises that I made to my wife beginning this year was to finally replace the old, broken water heater in our master bathroom. Actually it is an old promise dating many years ago as the old water heater needed to be replaced years ago but every time I wanted to replace it, I would have forgotten about it or some overseas assignment would come and I would get busy with that.
