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.

Ah. The story behind the puns is that when I first started on the "other forum" I stated an opinion which some people didn't agree with. Nothing serious mind, but something like which bar is the best for late night food.

Everyone should have an opinion and I fully encourage that, but the mods didn't like mine and turned on me which I felt was way below the belt. From that day on, I decided to only make dumb arse jokes even though I have been repeated told to make a more meaning contribution to the site.

Oh the irony…..

Oh the irony… Like Fox News, inside the bubble where facts don't matter.

It seems:
Arrogance is a virtue. Condescension a badge. And Paternalistic for your own good. :lol:

I didn't mind the Crab's input on 440, and will even admit to having one or two chuckles - controlled, quiet chuckles, but chuckles none-the-less.
Sorry, my fucking karma just ran over your dogma.

Well -- I am going to give this forum a shot. Same "handle" as the other although never a big poster there (100 - 150 or so).

Me? Yank. Lived and worked in SEA for about 20 years. Considering early retirement gigs and wound up here last year because i wanted to check it out having never had reason to come. Liked it enough I came back a few times and then decided to stay a year. Visa up in August -- considering whether to renew or not.

Good to see you all.

Nice Positive Vibe here.

Cheers!

I've been here 6 years and I like quiet nights at home with the wife,. Also like to smoke for medical reasons and drink the iced coffee cereal drink stuff.

Gidday

Kiwi living in London 9 years now. Similar handle on 440 and SVO, infrequent (15?) poster since 2008. Regular reader (everyday) of 440, SVO and now CEO.

Been to Cambodia 4 time since 2005, PP, SR and SV. Back for a week Jan 2014.

Have a few questions I will be asking in the coming weeks, hoping for some good responses. To be fair, I never got shit on 440, but can see how those with thin skin or delicate sensibilities may have been surprised. My motto (as a lifelong sarcastic bastard) is 'if you can't take it don't give it'.

Enjoying the new forum very much, keep up the good work and best of luck

GeeMan
