Tomorrow is NOT a pubic holiday.

I hope to fuck the noisy, ignorant, brown-nosing dwarf bog-trotter is sick.

just a one off, for the old king's remains to be put in a stupa inside the palace grounds

Day off for Sihanouk ceremony
Wed, 18 June 2014
Mom Kunthear
To mark the remains of King Father Norodom Sihanouk being interred at the Royal Palace’s Silver Pagoda during a three-day ceremony, July 11 will be a national holiday this year.

According to a directive from Prime Minister HE dated June 12 and obtained by the Post yesterday, the ceremony will take place on July 10, 11 and 12.

All state radio stations along with private television networks will suspend broadcasts on July 11, it says.

Businesses and public buildings operating on some major roads including Sihanouk, Norodom and Sothearos boulevards are expected to suspend operations on July 11 to help ease traffic.

The ceremony will involve a street procession from the northern exit of the Royal Palace to the Silver Pagoda, Minister of Information Khieu Kanharith announced in May.

The King Father died in Beijing on October 15, 2012, at age 89.
