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.

My name is Thomas and I'm an American professional poker player. I've been living in Cambodia for about two years, but I have been pretty much a hermit. I have a Cambodian girlfriend named Annie and we run a hostess bar (I won't spam and say which), though she does most of the running and I spend most of my time at home playing online poker.

I've always been bad at networking so I'm making a conscious effort to get more involved in the expat scene and this seems as good a place as any to do so.
Welcome aboard, and glad you've decided to stop being a hermit! ! !

Spam? ! ? No! ! ! Listing hostess bars that fellow CEO members own is a public service announcement! ! Feel free to tell us! !

I quit my dayjob as an architecture intern in 2006 when poker was making 3x as much money as my salary. Finished up architecture school and haven't worked since.

The hostess bar is Cool n Cozy on 118 near the river. We've been open for about two years after we took over for a previous bar that was there. 118 has picked up quite a bit of steam since we opened, with like 4 new hostess bars opening on the same block as us in the last year. It's no 136 yet, but I think it's will be catching up to 104 before long.

Sorry, couldn't locate that photo of an Australian guy with a 20 inch dildo up his arse. Well, next time then.
