Pulled off our moto by bag snatcher in Kep

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.

Jamie, I will never be concerned about you until I have it in good faith that you have become a flash packing digital nomad who drinks lattes with people like OP and other dreary assorted ilk who have wearied of the rat race.

On Sunday afternoon my girlfriend was driving down the main road near Kep Market and I was sitting on the back with a shoulder bag. .
Sorry to hear that.

Why were you letting your girlfriend drive you around on a moto?

It does not sound normal.

The local villagers say this new crop of thieves are different. Don’t actually look like thieves. They recommend to be extra careful this time before the New Year.

Fuck. That's going to make life almost impossible in the KOW now.
A new crop of thieves that don't look like thieves to go with that new crop of murderers that don't look like murderers, that new crop of rapists that don't look like rapists, that new crop of fraudsters that don't look like fraudsters and that new crop of hookers that look like cashiers.

Nothing is as it seems, it seems. :assasin:

The Ferrari was being serviced and it was the chauffeur's day off.

Susday, Kampot.
Please watch out.
3 young locals on a moto rode pass me, with an attempt to snatch my bag, strapped to my side i.e. sling. They failed to grab it, leaving a scratch on my arm. Screamed with all my might, the reminiscent of what voice is a.k.a. voicing it out. Of course, dogs went barking too. 2 other guys on another moto were riding behind them, as if the lookout.

This took place just after the 2000 roundabout, on the way to the Salt Workers'. They were driving a couple of times around the area from the riverside, then made the move.
Be safe, and take care always, bongs and bong sreys. Awkun chrang!
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
