Living on $37/month ...

If you have something so weird, strange or off-topic to post and think it doesn't belong in any other forum; you're probably right. Please put all your gormless, half-baked, inane, glaikit ideas in here. This might also be a place where we throw threads that appear elsewhere that don't belong ANYWHERE end up, instead of having to flush them. FORUM RULES STILL APPLY.

After my Rent + Bills are paid for, that $37 would last me about 2 maybe 3 hours on 1 night out, no way i could survive on 5000r per day, i dont know how he can unless as mentioned his "bills" included his food shop

Yeah, question is ,are you just surviving - and why would you ?

Needless to say, he lives a reclusive life.
I think Rama's example of $3 a day (for food and extras) for a foreigner is more feasible if you're living Khmer-style in the countryside. PP is more complicated and more expensive.

.
i pointed out, that theres no way i could survive on 5000r per day unless i just eat rice and drink only tap water, what can you get for 5000r per day?

my favourite khmer noodle joint in PP do some amazing seafood spicy khmer noodles for only 5000r, they are incredible, i have them for my lunch pretty much every day when in PP as conveniently the place is a stones throw from my guesthouse i stay,
but at 5000r that wouldnt leave me with any change for water, or another meal

why anyone would want to live like that is beyond me, living out in the province where you are set up, with a missus (cant afford to have children lol) its possible

i think we need to clarify if that $37 budget would have to be put towards meals or if its included in the 'bills'

This was posted by an American living in Cambodia just under 3 years ago (no names / no pack drill) ...

Hello Nepal expats. I am considering relocating to Nepal in a few months. I have been living in Cambodia for 5 years where I run my own Preschool and Kindergarten. It is very easy to open your own business here, there is very little red tape. I will be taking a TESOL course in Kerala, and then making my way to Kathmandu. I have very little savings. I will have to sell everything in my school to pay for this trip and the TESOL course. I have spent time in Sikkim, and love the people and culture. I'm sure I will love Nepal the same. What is the likelihood I can find work there teaching English at least making enough to live in a tiny room and have food? I don't need a life of luxury. After bills are paid, I live here on $37 a month. I am tired of the sexpats, former Khmer Rouge, drunks, pedophiles, habitual drunk drivers and barflies over here. I need change. I am an experienced mountaineer, river guide, vegan chef, and teacher. Should I come?

The reference to living on $37/month is interesting. Would this even begin to cover the bar bills of habitual CEO readers?
It will be recalled that Thoreau sent his laundry into town and frequently attended dinner parties ...
How can he be sick of the bar flies when he cannot afford to goto a bar.
