Happy Chinese New Year From Mish & Family

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.

:beer3: Happy New Year all.
So many Happy New Years in Cambodia - International, Chinese and Khmer are celebrated with gusto - who cares why it's party time and holidays.

However, (for those who are new here), although Chinese New Year is not officially a holiday in Cambodia, a lot of shops are shut today already and the markets are deserted. Also special CNY (high) prices for everything, from fruit and veges to transport and accomodation.
Amamzing. Cambodi is such a poor country everyone can shut up shop and go boozing at the drop of a hat....

Lancashire. Red Rose Man. Family goes back to the original Anglo Saxon invasion settled first in what was then Mercia. The ancient family home is still there in Aughton. Sadly, we are all peons.

How about you?
