Toul Kok mansion question...

Post by wolfcreek » Mon Feb 24, 2020 11:32 am

On my daily walks I have noticed that some of the mansion compounds in Toul Kok have what appear to be small factories/warehouses. Seems a bit odd. Any idea what these are used for?

It's very common for a business to be based at someone's home.
Or even just having a large room used as a distribution hub for products with a larger warehouse elsewhere.

Could be anything. If you really want to know then ask a local - it won't seem like you are being a nosey git. They'll happily tell you.

Someone told me once that many counterfeit things are being made: cigarettes; medicines; food items, etc.

Somebody told me if it is a high government or military persons Toul Kok mansion
those shed are full of thousands and thousands of dead bodies.

You see, apparently, for every ghost you put on the public payroll you gotta buy a dead person first, or make a new one - cos that's where ghosts come from.
Makes sense to me.

In the Stueng Mean Chey area it may contain huge amounts of timber stored there. Maybe they are going to take it into the forest and replant it or just stocking up for future BBQs. Take a trip out that way and look about . You may be surprised.

One of the bigger mansions under construction near TK shopping plaza also has lots of huge logs just inside the wall. They seem out of place there..

Yep they should be in trees as part of a forest.
