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

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Fri Jan 17, 2020 12:16 am

This is making the rounds on social media, showing a Cambodian student giving some foreigner 5,000 Riel ($1.25 USD) because he's been begging in the streets with a sign asking people to help him fund his travels. Many Cambodians comment that they've seen him all over Phnom Penh.

And they say they "pity" him! This is disgusting! How can a man from a rich country go to a poor country and take money from schoolchildren!

It's getting from bad to worse to ridiculous.
Sigh, who is this young idiot (I mean the barang, not the Khmer student) going around with a sign like that?

The local kid is going to get about 75 million likes for this, well worth $1.25.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

If I ever see any of these beg-packer shits begging I'm going to assault them. I'm talking a run-up slap to the head, full power. Fucking vermin.

Actually a white guy commented on the photo "Don't share photos like this it will prompt Cambodia to crack down on visas for us." Or words like that.
