SEA Games

I happened to be in Vientiane, Laos during the 2009 Sea Games while researching some stories for CNNGo. Below are a few photos from the Vietnam vs Laos woman's game earlier this month.

Christmas Dinner

Had a great Christmas Turkey dinner last night at Snow and finished the evening off at Joe's Cafe with brownies and hot apple brandy. Both venues had live music to boot. Many thanks to Snow and Joe's for a great evening. I hear Joe's is offering turkey and mashed potatoes and all the trimmings tonight as well...

Publishing News

I seem to be getting published in December faster than I can keep track. That's always a good thing. My story on Christmas in Phan Thiet was linked from CNN's front page and appears at CNNGo. More CNNGo articles are in the works. I also have an article in this month's HCMC-based Asia Life Magazine on all the off-the-radar things to do and see in Mui Ne.

In book news, Insight Guide to Cambodia and Laos, for which evaluated the book and updated the Cambodia section, should be out any day now, as well as DK Eyewitness Vietnam, for which I updated the entire book. I'm currently working on other titles for Cambodia and Thailand as well.
