A Modest Proposal – 1

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.

Flying Chicken,the numbers you give imply that you were working for a tiny salary, much less than an English teacher. Is that correct?

What exactly number or tiny do you mean. Just letting know that wealth isnt top of my priority.

That would be fine for a single man. Once you bring a baby daughter into the world, your damn well better be busting your ass to provide her and your wife with a decent life and future. You don't get a day off from that responsibility.
