As for not wearing a shirt, that's part of the benefit of living in this climate. Wearing a shirt in my free time means the shirts need to be laundered, which I hate doing.

I've always said "If you got it, flaunt it. " So when I'm working out at riverside, or relaxing there afterward, sitting alone, I often go shirtless and the Khmer women love it.

99.99% of foreigners are probably jealous and thus acting as clothes police.

Last trip I really enjoyed sitting outside by the Riverside and eating chef's salad at Deja vu restaurant but I kept getting a really strange feeling that I'd been there before!

Probably a lot of the blokes sitting alone on the Riverside are probably on holiday. Expats don't hang there. As we know, Phnom Penh is hardly the most exciting place for day time activities.

Some of us are strong and independent and self sufficient, self reliant and self confident. The rest need to surround themselves with people to fill the void.
