Cambodian Schoolboy Donates 5,000 Riel to Handsome Foreign Begpacker to Fund his Travels

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.

How long until Cambodians think they may as well do it themselves?
I'm surprised they aren't already doing GoFundMes to travel the world.


Meaning - they are more worthy of this type of experience had this type of way (but perhaps that is me being unfair to Western youth)

The local kid is going to get about 75 million likes for this, well worth $1.25.
He would get even more if the OP had put a link to the FB page on that screenshot. Or am I computer illiterate, and missed the link?

What I was thinking. A small investment for being a star at his school for a day.

One of the funniest examples of this type of begging I ever saw was in Denver Colorado in 2017
I was walking down the main drag after the recreational weed shops had been open a year.
I saw white punks with signs that were begging for NUGS...NUGGIES...slang for nuggets...not gold nuggets like their NBA team is named after...nuggets of sinsimilla...sensemilla ..depending on your preferred spelling.
These fucks were every 20 steps with their signs begging for weed.
So, not surprising to see a punk just like them begging dough off Khmer kids.

"I don't know what he is..."
This kid has a great way with words

So has the begpacker for that matter
"I was moving with no money. Please help support my moving"

Well, you got everyone supporting you there, Comrade.

The popular wroter/blogger Catherine Harry has written a rather scathing piece on this chump and a lot of people agree. Begpackers beware, the tide is turning against you. :fighting:
