Introduce Yourself

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.

I write about music mostly. Moving to Cambodia in October so thought it was time I joined this properly. I'm new here but I've been coming to Cambodia for 17 years. I've got some land leased on the hill in Koh Rong Samloem and I'm building some property there. I'm also learning Mandarin. If you get me. Nice to meet you all.

You'd be wise to ignore Beerinthemornings dismal rants, he has never lived or worked in Cambodia.

OK thanks... But in case he is wondering...

The fact people are saying 'Cambodia is done' is exactly why I'm moving in. It might be done as a beacon for sexpats, filthy hippies and drunken uni kids on summer holidays or gap years, but the new guys in town have a lot more money to spend. Cambodia is booming, you've just gotta embrace it, not pine for the days of 50c Klangs and lording it about like a low-rate John McAffe.

They have Budweiser. It unfortunately says '0%' on it though.

Introduce Yourself

Post by Journada »

I'm a journalist in California, looking for someone who I can interview for a podcast. I'd like to ask some questions about conditions inside Prey Sar prison. Someone who has firsthand knowledge would be great, but that's not essential. Anyone who can speak with some authority, even if the knowledge is secondhand, would work for this purpose. You can reach me via email at [email protected]. Thanks.
