A vendor at Phnom Penh's O'Russey Market sells roast suckling pigs

Thursday ahead of the Lunar New Year rush. Suckling pig is a very

popular dish on Lunar New Year - which starts today - and dozens of

impromptu stalls selling pigs and other popular Chinese fare such as

smoked duck, have sprung up across the capital. Although not officially

a public holiday, the Kingdom's sizable Chinese community means that

many restaurants and businesses close down for the week.
