My Friend Might Be Cambodia's Next Top Model

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.

Sure, Richard, but life isn't a fairy tale and most girls grow up to realize that meeting Prince Charming is not necessarily what they want or should aspire to.

I'm not sure whether those girls have grasped the notion that modeling isn't just about looking pretty but is about attitude and having the confidence in going out of the comfort zones (semi-nudes, showing skin, undress with little privacy when changing outfits, etc.).
I saw only one candidate who has that "modeling" vibe

Kmao peet, ot sa'at! I've noticed several girls don't even know how to pose for pictures, but on average, I'd say Cambodian girls know more about body positioning for pictures than western girls. Simple stuff like being sideways, lifting a leg up slightly, straight back/confident, putting your face at an angle that looks good etc. Even the ugliest girl can look decent by following a few simple rules.
Except for the new Korean trend. Makes girls look like idiots. Equivalent to the western girls' duckface obsession.

[EDIT]Wow, I just noticed that girl is 168cm... Niiiiiice. Where is this competition taking place?

Well it can't be taking place in any Khmer bathroom, at that height.

Never liked them tall, myself. Takes longer to lie them down :lol:

I also prefer my women small esthetically speaking, but it looks weird when I'm walking down the street with a tiny Asian girl... I've actually never dated a tall one before, so I'm tempted by it. I have a tall one in my list of contacts though whom I should start working on. She's probably around the same: 165-170. Rare for Cambodian girls (especially for them to be a bit meaty and not just skin and bones).

Cambodian girls all "skin and bones"? Have you been here in the last 10 years? Where in Cambodia do you live exactly? The vast majority of Khmer women are decidedly on the "rounded" side these days with their increasingly junk food diets. Of course, not "fat" but many a bit pudgy ala Thailand. I see few skinny girls now, very few indeed. Vietnam still has many of that body type, but it is changing there as well. Sugar and fatty processed foods be a'comin'.
