Pulled off our moto by bag snatcher in Kep

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.

Three motos surrounded us and one guy attempted to snatch by bag but only succeeded in pulling us of our moto. Luckily I am just grazed and bruised but my girlfriend has hurt her knee quite badly and can hardly walk (we had a nurse friend take a look and it just bad bruising).

I never expected this to happen in Kep! We have lived here for a few months and always felt totally safe. Some local friends said there was another similar incident recently. Please remember to stash bags / purses when driving.
You have murders in Kep yet you never expected a bag snatching to happen in your little shithole......

So, if I say in American English, "He pulled off a bank job," you would understand that to mean that he made a lot of money giving someone a handjob?
As my old Cajun bait seller used to say, "I opes you luck.

I slightly regret joining this forum, it seems to be largely frequented by the type of ex-pats who are only here because they are too ugly to get laid back home, and too useless to make any real money. After a few years in "paradise" they start to realise that paying for sex with people who find you repulsive while drinking yourself to death does not make for such a joyous life, so they become bitter as fuck. I see the pitiful bastards waddling around everywhere spouting their resentful nonsense to any poor fucker who has the misfortune to be in their vicinity. Hopefully the Chinese will price them out and the visa rules will tighten up so it will just be flash-packing digital nomads such as myself drinking lattes and being massively smug on account of having "escaped" the rat race. :lol1: Times are changing.
Well, thanks for responding to an off-colour joke by one member by being a really superior wannabe arsehole yourself. The door is not locked.
OP has outed himself as the man-bun wearing type... This guy moved to Cambodia to smugly sip lattes... :dm:

Kind of ironic that he wants all the poor barangs gone, but the 'flash-packing digital nomad' was riding a motorcycle.

Ot mien loi?

The Porsche was obviously getting re-upholstered.

watched a movie last night called "Barrio"
mentions that hipsters wants the off color of a barrio, but want all the homeless,locals, riff raff gone..
compare to Kampot, keep all the old shop fronts,the riverside but add in hipster joints (and the cool local places), cafes, places to hang with out the locales around and they'd all be there..
Gentrification
When "urban renewal" of lower class neighbourhoods with condos attracts yuppie tenants, driving up rents and driving out long time, lower income residents. It often begins with influxes of local artists looking for a cheap place to live, giving the neighbourhood a bohemian flair. This hip reputation attracts yuppies who want to live in such an atmosphere, driving out the lower income artists and lower income residents, often ethnic/racial minorities, changing the social character of the neighbourhood.
It also involves the "yuppification" of local businesses; shops catering to yuppie tastes like sushi resaturants, Starbucks, etc... come to replace local businesses displaced by higher rents.
they destroy what attracted them in the first place
sad
In a nation run by swine, all pigs are upward-mobile and the rest of us are fucked until we can put our acts together: not necessarily to win, but mainly to keep from losing completely. HST

I'd take it to mean that he robbed a sperm bank.

not really, because the context is different, your using "Pulled off" in the achievement sense, where as the OP is using it in the physical sense

the OP title you only have to move the word "by" from "Pulled off our moto by bag snatcher in Kep" to "Pulled off by our moto bag snatcher in Kep" for it to completely change the meaning
