Soaline, my friend who's the chef of Shinta Mani, invited his close friends to his birthday celebration. It was a simple affair done on the area in front of his house. It's sort of a barbecue party with Khmer food. They had some beds set-up that served as tables and seating area to eat.
This very interesting metal container being cooked is a vessel to smoke native chicken and vegetables. I tried the smoked heart-of-banana and it was sooo good.
Of course, I didn't eat the barbecue.
I just had vegetables. This papaya salad with rice was delish. I ended up eating a lot of salad!
I also ate a bunch of longans. It's sold so cheap here.
Me and the gang.
After the party I went to the salon and had a haircut and shampoo.
