The only thing that may or may not be complicated is that there are no nearby outlets. I think I need to hire an electrician to have a look.

Don't forget to put a GFI on the powerline too.

They do sell electric wires in long lengths you know, so proximity shouldn't really matter... ;-)
Just make sure he doesn't gouge you on the cost of materials.

I think I've already made clear that I have no idea what I'm talking about when it comes to electricity or home improvement, but I have visions of wires strung across the room and hanging loose in the bathroom...this is the sort of thing that keeps me up at night.

giblet, you need a barang/well-known recommended Khmer to check it out, otherwise you will get ripped off.

I suggest you ask ken svay, he will definitely know someone. Or Murray.

Thats why I suggested she contact Jess to get info on the Vietnamese electrician used by her and Padder. Ken Svay would be a good bet though.

On the case. Going to get a proper electrician over to assess the situation. Maybe he can figure out how to put in a few more outlets while he's at it.
