Capt'n Jack

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. 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.

Capt'n Jack

Post by bucknaked » Thu Dec 06, 2018 9:29 am

Hey

Our recent trip to Cambodia we ran into a guy referring to himself as Capt'n Jack, quite a character, had spent a lot of years running bars in Snookie including running beauty pageants
Living the dream me reckons, nice bloke, anyone know who I'm referring to?

Does he wear a military vest?
For some, like Captain Jack, the Brit with the military vest whom we officially met a few nights later, it’s a place to wake and bake while avoiding the UK’s harsh winters. “I’m paying $325 a month as a long-term renter,” he boasted, “I’m actually saving money by being here.”

The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

Pretty sure I saw him in Kampot since the Snooky Chinese imposed exodus ...
Meum est propositum in taberna mori,
ut sint Guinness proxima morientis ori.
tunc cantabunt letius angelorum chori:
"Sit Deus propitius huic potatori."

That would possibly be Mr. Jersey Jack. One of the characters some 10-20 years ago in Sihanoukville. Running a bar called Captain Jack's now in Kampot.

Great lyrics
In a nation run by swine, all pigs are upward-mobile and the rest of us are fucked until we can put our acts together: not necessarily to win, but mainly to keep from losing completely. HST

Then he's Cap'n Jack, not Jersey Jack. One can't have two Cambodia nicknames, it creates anarchy.
