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,

I lurked for a while, read some interesting topics, and decided to join. I love Cambodia and think there's much to learn about it from this community. A couple of years ago I was very close to moving to PP but decided not to. It was a convenient decision, as I live a short flight away and have the pleasure to visit when I like. Maybe I'm chickenshit, maybe I'm comfortable where I am, and simply enjoy my visits. I do feel it's inevitable that I live in Cambodia at least for a few years, time will tell.

No not a pedobear meme. :( A bit untidy to be linked as a pedo on my first post. Not that I should have to justify my username but here it is.

When I went to Recruit school when I was a kid, my mother (god bless her cotton socks) sent a letter to the recruit school staff asking that they look after me as I had not been away from home before. As such when I arrived, the recruit school staff kept calling me Paddington Bear. I thought it was because i'm not the tallest and a little round about the middle. I didn't find out the real reason until I got home and my mum fessed up. To rub salt into the wound she sent me licorice bullets in the mail thinking it would be funny. The PT instructors sure thought so and made sure that I payed for it.

So not a pedo

Cheers

Welcome, John!

(I'm still trying to decide if being a boon is good or bad.)
