Expat meetup in Phnom Penh

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.

Expat meetup in Phnom Penh

Post by movetocambodia » Wed Jul 02, 2014 7:43 pm

My friends down at Lazy Gecko are hosting an expat meetup this Sunday at 1 p.m. I won't be in town, but I would strongly encourage you to go, Barb's one of the most interesting chicks in town.

Here's the announcement:

Are you new to Phnom Penh? Want to meet other newbies and longer term expats? If you have questions and would like to talk to real life people instead of trolling forums and trip adviser for answers, come down to Lazy Gecko Cafe on Sunday afternoon at 1pm. This informal session will be hosted by Barb Eason, an Australian expat with 9 years behind her in the capital. A local business owner, NGO co-founder, a survivor of eviction, dengue fever and dysentery. Married and given birth in country, her local knowledge is pretty broad and random, she knows more Khmer swears than your average bear. Session is free, simply buy some food and or drinks and mingle. Longer term expats : maybe you're looking for a new housemate, sports team member or drinking buddy? Come along and share your experiences of PP. You just might meet someone ace. Copies of Lina Goldberg's Move to Cambodia will be available for sale as well. See you then!

OK, that is a blatant advertisement for a private sector even and the response by our admin is 'I am lucking forward to it ' ..... I give up ! What on earth is happening and why the fu** has it not always happened on forums?

Well done Lazy Gecko and especially well done admin team (Gen M and THE Dragon) for looking long term and not focusing on the short term.

If someone will pay my travel, I am there :beer3:

Just to clarify, I totally applaud business enterprise and both our admin/owners for welcoming and supporting it, in a genuine way.

However, a taxi from Wigan might be a little expensive, so thank you for the offer (PM) but I will wait and see you all in December, as planned

Yeah, meet-ups are always a good thing! I've made very many good friends from random meet-ups here in Cambodia, so they will always have my full support.

They should post their food/drinks menu/prices online.

Good opportunity.
