The Crown team on arrival in Changi Airport in Singapore - click to enlarge
The Phnom Penh Crown team arrived safely in Changi Airport - the
best in the world in my opinion - at mid-day, whizzed through arrivals
and headed straight for the team hotel at Santa Grand East Coast Hotel.
Lunch was ready and waiting and the players are now relaxing before we
head out for training at 5pm at the Tampines Rovers ground. We met at
7am this morning, Cambodian time, which is an hour behind Singapore. Our
flight left half an hour late, took 1 hour 40 mins, flying at 450mph,
according to the captain (and I don't mean Kouch Sokumpheak). The hotel
is in a recently converted historical set of shop-houses and only opened
in January. Rooms cost around $200 per night and it has a rooftop
swimming pool. Right, we're off to training.
