$5 Million Apartment a Launchpad to London High Society for Niece of HE

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. 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.

Hshaha maybe because I have only been here 3 years Duncan hence why I still think like a tourist. Then again I have been to a lot of countries where the same rules apply for those in power so you're right in that nothing will change.

In the meantime they will just keep sending it overseas.
In the KOW meantime the poor will stay poor no matter how much foreign aid is provided by well meaning governments and ngo's but that's worthy of another topic altogether.

There is a great comment at the emd of the article i assume it is tongue in cheek.

This is a real success story of a poor young girl from a poor country to become a rich among the richest of the world.Combodian people must thank Chantha Hun to make their country known in all over the world. Hurray, hurray for Chantha
The sad part is, is that it also wouldn't surprise me in the least if this was a genuine sentiment from some local.

Part of living in a "face" culture is the love and adoration of pretty things, expensive things, showy things etc. to the exclusion of any critical thought about the festering rot, eating away at this society's soul.

Some parking attendant helps a spit-shined Bentley sedan shoehorn its way in front of Brown's and he's probably thrilled and thinks the car is 'saart'. Never considering the underlying sickness that is evident when he's making $80 a month whilst incomprehensibly lavish possessions overflow all around him as Bong Thoms come and go....doing apparently very little with their day.

Certain echelons should be very weary of the hoi polloi becoming enlightened to the immense chasm of wealth disparity and asking serious questions about their station in life.
