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 my name is Martine. Hubby, Mike and I arrived in PP 3 weeks ago with intention of staying for a while. So far we've done all the tourist spots around PP, spent a week in Sihanoukville and back in PP this week job hunting and going to interviews. Becoming a little holidayed out now and looking for ideas of things to do around PP and even where to go for weekend trips. Would also like to know of places to go swimming, missing the water of Sihanoukville already. On another note would also like to meet up with other members for a cuppa or a drink. Just so you know, we're in our 50s.....young 50s.

Hello, my name is Dave. I have been coming to SEA for the last 10 years, mainly to the Philippines, and have decided to explore new areas. Married to a Filipina (at least for now) but just generally tired of the Philippines and Thailand too. Know a couple guys who made the Move to PP a few years ago and they love it so I booked myself a ticket to see what all the fuss is about, lol. As I was doing research I found this forum and been lurking here learning as much as I can. Hope to learn more and if I ask a dumb question flame away as I have think skin.

kampot is usually a good weekend trip from PP, easy to get to, a lot of my friends normally do that,
the olympic stadium has a big swimming pool which is cheap to use
hope you enjoy your stay and good luck in the interviews

PP has a good casino called nagaworld with a good bar and free beer for punters, free boxing events at the stadium on weekends, lots of cheap bars , cheap night clubs and easy access to snooky and kampot if you wanna get out of the capital.

personally I understand that your bored of Thailand It's getting to expensive strict and boring there .
Cambodia is definitely cheaper and friendlier for now but slowly I see them getting greedier and greedier as the years go by turning little bit like Thailand slowly but surely.

Sounds like a solid relationship there, LoL.

Thanks for the reply’s. Yeah not a rock steady relationship, jumped in too soon I suspect but like I said I am tired of the Philippines for good reason, mainly being my bank account, lol. From what I have deduced Filipinos are a "give me more" nation and no matter what I give it'd never be enough. Sometimes a guy needs to draw a line and say enough is enough. Besides, I am kind of crusty old fart and I like being alone :)

I am American from Alaska BTW. So got my ticket for July and staying the first week at the Bougainvillier Hotel in PP then go from there I guess. No real plans other than doing a little exploring and sightseeing, I will be in country for a month. Might head to Ho Chi Mien City for a few days if I get the chance too. Looking for some place I can retire too in a few years so wish me luck.
