Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

For sure Peck, they have more local neologisms than the average English speaker can deal with. They are an imaginative lot and have many languages to steal from.
As my old Cajun bait seller used to say, "I opes you luck.

If you know a lot, know enough to make them respect you, if you are stupid, be stupid enough so they can pity you.

One my gf used in frustration with her sister [who is her roommate] continuing to clog the bathroom drain with her hair and not cleaning it out after repeated remonstrations:
Kadooie rung - stubborn
Another one that I made up and has come into use between us, meaning stupid
