postmen and scooters

Post by helpppp » Tue Oct 04, 2016 8:34 pm

You will all guess the backstory here and please dont make fun of me because I already know that i am mad.

1. I have posted a letter from australia to Siem Reap to someone who lives in a room in a building along a dusty road. Do you think it will arrive. Do postmen travel these roads?

2. Is there somewhere i can easily buy a cheap scooter. I just want one that will get someone from A-B and i dont want to spent much right now.

Mail is delivered in SR? Never realized in the 7 years I have been there, I just go and pick up my mail.

Always a good idea to put the phone number of the recipient to help with notifying them. :thumb:

Hello Helpppppppp,
Looks like it's too late to help you with the postman. If you have any more questions like that, better ask before. I hope you didn't lose too much and didn't put any money in your parcel.
However, it's not too late for Question 2:
2. Is there somewhere i can easily buy a cheap scooter. I just want one that will get someone from A-B and i dont want to spent much right now.
I think you better come clean if you want helpful answers. It doesn't matter if we laugh at you. (The postman story was actually quite funny. Never heard that one before.)

Ok. Tell us all : You have a girlfriend in SR that you met while on holiday and you got engaged to her. She is waiting for you and you will be back in X amount of time. She is adorable and she doesn't want your money, but you have sent her a pile of stuff (hopefully not money or an iphone), and now you want to buy her a motorbike so she doesn't have to walk to work/school. Something like that ?

How were you thinking of buying a motorbike in SR when you are in Australia ? Buying it through an online catalogue or something similar and paying by bank card ? Maybe just send your girl the price of a motorbike by Western Union and be done. Anyone got anything more helpful to suggest ? :popcorn:
