Introduce Yourself

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. 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.

Hi everyone

My names Dru, 31. I recently moved to Phnom Penh from Australia with my wife. I'm currently finishing a bit of study (social science/anthropology), and aim to do a bit of research while I'm here. I'll also be helping a friend here with a development project. Really I'm just a tag along though, as my wife's here to train/mentor Khmer teachers.

Anyway, I'll be lurking around - virtually and physically.

Hi,

I'm a researcher from TV Company Blink Films in the UK. We are making a pilot for Channel 4 about early retirement. We're looking to speak to anyone who might've ditched the Daily Grind of the 9-5 early to retire to Cambodia. If this applies to you (or someone you know) we'd love to hear from you!

Please contact [email protected]!

Thanks,
Beth

Hi Beth, welcome to the forum.

I think the person you should speak to used to go by the name of 'bkktrapper', however he now uses the name 'phrammoianchor'. Search the members list, then send him a PM. I believe he's an early retiree.

... give 'em a quick, short, sharp shock ...

Hi there, I'm a newbie to the forum and to Phnom Penh. I've visited several times but not made it my home until now. I'm excited to find such a good forum, I am seeing a ton of handy info already.

Aint that the truth ! I find when i make the staying healthy part a priority it eases the sufferin on the rest of it . Spent a little time in asia but never cambodia . Watched too many guys take a turn for the worse with cheap booze and beautiful women . And it sounds like you even gotta dodge good food in cambodia !
