Etiquette

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.

Traditionally, the cork was actually sliced and shown to the buyer to demonstrate that the wine had been correctly stored. The aging of the wine should be reflected in the 'soak' into the cork. Also, if the bottom of the cork is fragmenting, it's an indication of poor storage or that the wine is corked.

in my misguided youth I got more loving from the opposite sex when a "happy box" (or as we used to call them, the ten buck chuck) was used then any bottle.

Cask wine, or chateau cardboard as we liked to call it, had the added advantage of using the silver bladder as a pillow once depleted of its contents and inflated. Perfect for those lonely nights under the bridge.
The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

Bogans in Australia refer to these as 'goon sacks' or goonies - pretty sure that would offend at least someone here in Cambodia

I think it fair to say Australian bogans are offensive to everyone.
