Phnom Penh Expat Down to His Last 44 Cents & Needs a $2,500 Loan

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.

Does that give people the right to say offensive things about the girl?

Do you think the things said about the girl are offensive?

If you’re a seller on social media pretending to be in the spotlights you will get comments- good and bad.

If you can’t stand the heat....

...then register on CEO and make snide remarks pseudonymously.

I feel like there should be a fat Italian from New York telling people to get outta here.

I think that calling Jacque a girl probably hurts his feelings. Do you know something about the destitute OP that the rest of us don't?

He's a Jesus guy. This and many more on his fb page.

Would his church - or a church - or a Church member - not help this man in his hour of need ?
(I don't know, but I had the idea that these God people are all about helping others, and also that they help each other out. Wouldn't the church be a natural place to turn when you need help ? )
Note that I am trying to be constructive, despite my lack of sympathy for religion and god-botherers.
(And, is it just me, or is this photo seriously weird ?)

Now don't change the question for the poster who knows all the answers.
As my old Cajun bait seller used to say, "I opes you luck.

Someone in Phnom Penh is searching for Jacques Van Wyk on social media. This was posted last night, 15, Nov 2019:

I am looking for this guy. His name is Jacques Van Wyk. I cannot contact him. His phone and social networks cannot contact. His job is English Teacher. If I still cannot contact him, what should I do? Should I contact his school? Contact his embassy? Or report to police?

A goodbye to all you beautiful people from Jacques' social media page on 9 November. He appears to have changed schools, but he is not exactly in hiding, so should not be difficult to find.
