The

new border committee to be headed by HM King Father Norodom Sihanouk is drawing attention

from multiple quarters, including that concerned with how to pronounce acronyms.

After careful deliberations, it has been determined that the Supreme National Council

of Border Affairs (SNCBA) may end up being referred to as "Snack Bar".

** The word that Cambodia is a prime tourist destination has reached the ends of

the earth -- literally! Just last week, the Kingdom received what is most likely

its first visitors from Antarctica.

Jay and Emily, currently working at the research station on McMurdo Sound, were spotted

along the riverfront sweating profusely and panting like polar bears stuck in the

Sahara Desert. They said Cambodia was "hot".

Antarctica is a really interesting place, according to the couple, but for people

with post-nasal drip it can be difficult. "Like trying to swallow nails,"

said Jay.
