Newlyweds Lim Molyroth, 27, right, and Sok Saravuth, 28, hold fruit decorated by the Daughter-in-Law Training Centre in Phnom Penh. The centre, run by Lim Molyroth's sister, Lim Molyrathana, 29, specialises in the art of entertainment, providing young women with the creative skills to turn an average party or banquet into a more sumptuous and stylish affair.

She has hundreds of designs in her catalog, she says, and hopes to add hundreds more in the future.
