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.

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

I suspect maybe a communication breakdown or a failure on my part to communicate effectively.

When I said 'I never got shit on' blah blah I meant no one gave me a hard time, rather than taking a metaphorical dump on me. Maybe a problem with NZ slang and more generally accepted language.

Please don't let my 'Hello, my name is GeeMan' itro become a thin excuse to slag 440. Again, if I've mis-read your reply then peace brother.

:good:

Personally, I always thought being understood can be quite boring at times, LoL.

Yeah. That's an accurate reflection of 'how it was'. What it was at the end was a mangy pack of frail old hyenas that beat themselves into a terrified group frenzy whenever a new lion arrived, so pathetically scared of losing territory and their status in the pack, and (in their minds) 'ownership' of Cambodia. But do carry on, what we're you saying before you dissed much of the CEO membership?

D, at least give the "sarcastic bastard" a right of reply before moving this to the designated bucket.

Shame - I was hoping for better, my optimism obviously got the better of me. I wasn't aware I was 'dissing' anyone, my tone has been nothing but conciliatory.

So much for a brave new world, SC, you certainly live up to your name. Again, a shame.

440 had a pet hobby horse whereby they attacked all things Pattaya. I've been a BM on PA for many years now, and a fundamental ethic there has always been 'nice to be nice'. PA has always been, IMO, a better board for it. Maybe we should consider that here.

Anyho, I've said my piece. Best wishes all

GeeMan, I know your new to this forum. I, myself, am new to Cambodia, Hey Ho! but, from my experience of CEO, if you have a good idea they will listen and act on it ( if you have a crap idea, they will still listen and thank you for your input, although may not act positively on it )

Either way, they will genuinely listen :Yahoo!:

I also think this New Glasnost, is cascading through other forums and this can, IMHO, only be a positive thing

Welcome

Old,cynical Irishman from the black north of that fair isle. In Cambodia since 2007, first two years in Phnom Penh, then moved to rural Takeo.
