The cost of company...

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.

That being said here is where I see the matter: the longest relationship I'd want to have these days in 45 minutes.


And soon it is down to 8.5 minutes?...
What are you supposed to do for the other 7 minutes?

Of course I also ocasionally give generous performance based bonuses :beer2:
That lady is 50...and your maid. $80 is about right.
Was wondering what sort of rejoinder I would get :lol:
Actually you can easily get a 25 year old maid for $80, fortunately my appt is serviced so I dont need one. :)
On a serious note the $70 was her financial commitment to the family which she asked me to cover when she moved in. The other stipulation was I "take care her", which like the statement "up to you" can work out expensive :( . In reality the extra cost of having a "defacto" over the last couple of years has been around $300 per month.

I read a Viet "wife" cost $600 from small villages. How would wages be paid to a "partner".
