There is a YouTube clip of some Aussies putting a hot water cylinder out in a paddock with the valve disabled. It goes off like a bomb. I was surprised to learn years ago tha...

Re: Dreaming of moving to Cambodia how do I make a habit

There are jobs for expats in construction despite what the naysayers think. But speaking some Khmer is important and spending some time making connections.

Re: Anyone in KoW agree with NJH's views?
