End of an era - Charlie Harper’s sold

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.

Ok I apologise, my sources gave me a bum steer. Admin please delete the topic, I’m so sorry.

We all get info on lots of topics from various sources. Sometimes they are wrong. Even media reports are incorrect at times (except Fresh News..)
By making the topic you ensured that the discussion led to the correct information.

the big empty block of land on the Kampot river front in the same block as Rusty Keyhole was just sold to Chinese- as was a $2 M deal in Kep last weekend according to rumour
LOTS of ineterest in Kep now
courl be a good time to sell, Rich
for sure- things will be getting less easy for the long noses in the not too distant future here
we are surplus to requirements now
our antics will pale in comparison to the misdeeds of mainlanders

i wonder how the small business people feel?
will they still find opportunity in the new environment?
Sorry, there was hysteria when the Japanese were buying America in the 1990s.

They never took over, did they?

The Chinese can't really defend themselves.

They piss off people, then every 20-30 years, they often get massacred for being haughty and selfish.

People have targeted the Chinese recently here: Vietnam, KR, etc. Elitist, corrupt scum, in the end.

Some call it a correction.

Always be good to your customers and neighbors.

Koreans gentrified much of black America, put in lights, cleaned up, etc.

Of course, they aren't Commies and were all ex-military, believe it or not, since the 50s.

China may help try to civilize Cambodia. Their crime: bad English and zero international social skills (mainlanders).

Not if there's a fire, not even if you hear the sound of a thud from my home and one week later there's a smell coming from there that can only be a decaying human body and you have to hold a hanky to your face because the stench is so thick that you think you're going to faint.

Even then, don't come knocking...Not for ANY reason.

You guys know that Tony was just the manager, right? He'd been telling his missus he owned the place, but she fell on her arse trying to sell it when he died.

so got told yesterday that charlie harpers is closing end of july

the owner paid the current tenants off.

i heard about tony.very sad.
some people said he was murdered but i find that unlikely he liked riding fast and drinking fast...

on a related note I see someone has renewed (this month) his old website sihanoukvilleonline.com although nothing really works.
more likely it was expired and they bought it

Yes, and Naga belongs to some very senior people.

Nobody can compete, fortunately.

She had no stake in the property because they didn't own it or the lease. Did she tell you this?

She owns the lease not the building (obviously) and has the business licence stuck behind the bar.

If she didn’t own anything she would have been kicked out when Tony died. The other barang owners walked away from their stake and never even contacted her or her friends.

She’s now been compensated for the lease ending early.

That’s how I understood it but I’m open to knowledge from people who are on the ground, so to speak.
