Phnom Penh's lesser known barang a jai

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.

Honest question, is there a correlation between cat graveyards and tossed cans? Or is it just a reflection on your bogan neighbour's gardening style?

Our village had one of those. He used to give us kids peanuts in a twist of paper. Some of the kids were invited inside the house. All of a sudden he disappeared, and we never saw him again...
