Bored?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Pattaya based, so golf is still my main hobby but gradually it is becoming more expensive so trips away to the likes of Kanchanaburi or Korat where it is still great value are becoming more frequent. Played in Chiang Mai a while back but again it was upmarket resort priced like Siem Riep. Started getting into photography as a future option, once you've got the gear minimal future outlay and Cambodia presents so many opportunities. Free internet tutorials, reading etc are a great help to a beginner. Cookery, again we're spoilt for sourcing fresh quality produce and ingredients. Internet for ideas again. Great fun going round local markets, albeit a bit sweaty but the beer tastes better afterwards.

Agreed. I love Penang, and stayed there for over 3 months, and was never tempted to go to Ipoh.

If you're worried about boredom, Ed, I would totally take Ipoh off that list.

My vote goes to Chiang Mai, given those options.

You just dont know your way around Snooky. In the morning when the sun shines from the South at Serendipity beach, hold your compass still and wait for the shade to turn exactly 47 degree (clockwise) angle and walk forward; but can't remember how long and whether it's in meter or yard.

Get a place with a good view of the street, but quite high up. There's always something ridiculous to watch.
I'm bored almost everywhere, but very rarely in Phnom Penh.

Hey there - were you "Dude Cowboy" on the "other" forum? Did you meet a bloke named Brad who worked for Starbucks and did a t-shirt campaign here in PP?

Just wondering....

It's all about hobbies. I have like 20. 19 of them are drinking, the other one is playing the "where did this cut come from?" game the day after.
