A man has revealed how his father-in-law has taken the unusual step of refusing to go to bed at bedtime, and staying up all night, then sleeping right through the next day, instead.
Moys Kenwood, 56, a resident of Tapon commune in Battambang, claims his father-in-law - whose name he doesn't know - is aged around 75, and not the most sociable person he knows.
According to the Englishman, the old man prowls around the garden after dark in a stealthy manner, checking on the status - stolen or unstolen - of his collection of ducks that roam freely around the property.
Brandishing a powerful torch, and sending vivid beams of light through the darkness and into everyone's bedroom windows whilst they are trying to sleep, he evokes magical, spinechilling images of the searchlights of the London Blitz.
He has become, in every sense, a nightowl, a nocturnal creature.
"I wish he'd stop his creeping about. It's like the start of a 20th Century Fox film."
