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.

Welcome to CEO!

How much did it cost him?
Beer and bacon. Lifetime supply.

Hi everyone,

I just found CEO and am so happy. I sometimes feel a bit disconnected from my culture and over the last couple of years I feel like I want to learn more about myself and my roots, not only from my parents but also in interacting with people who might also have been raised in another country, with a different culture and different habits. I just want to talk to people and share my experience. I was born and live in Germany and besides my Family I don't know any Khmer people in Germany, especially not my age. I am half German half Khmer and luckily, have been raised bilingual, but I never learned how to read and write properly Khmer. Now I'm learning to write and read and extend my vocabulary step by step since about 1 year. I have been to Cambodia many, many times when I was I kid. Now, seeing you guys here and reading about your experiences and opinions somehow makes me really happy. Anyways, : hello.

Hi Khla !
Half-Khmer, half-German sounds interesting. So if we stereotype you, then you must be a friendly, happy-go-lucky guy who works hard and is always on time, right ? :D
Welcome.

lol yeah, no. Just to be clear, the" happy-go-lucky" part is for the German part, right? :D No, I am really chaotic. But happy and working towards my goals, yes. :)

So the stereo type for Khmer people is happy-go-lucky? What else do people think about Khmer? I think I found a lot of wisdom in Khmer concerning nutrition/health/well-being through my family.
