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.
Would you prefer to share breakfast with a Turk, drinking Turkish coffee out of a tiny Turkish coffee cup?
Or with an American, drinking American coffee out of an American sized mug?
I’d rather eat alone.
Probably not a bad second choice, but I’ll go with the Turk. So long as he doesn’t try to sell me something from the bazaar.
American coffee is to coffee what gutter oil is to stir fry.
While we’re bashing coffee cup stature, I wonder if we can fix the bit where a pot of tea involves a smallish teapot filled with not quite hot water, and a teabag still in its paper wrapper on the tray next to the pot?
I asked for a pot of tea, not a DIY project.
Pot, pre-warmed, big enough for at least three cups.
Tea, ideally loose leaf. Assam, Pekoe or lapSang.

There I thought this was going to be about coffee mugs in hotel rooms being cleaned with the bath mat.....
Oh, Christ......please tell me that doesn't happen.
That and worse.....
In some countries, housekeeping staff are from outsourced companies and have to clean up to 30!!! rooms in an 8-hour shift. They cannot waste time, so do not expect that glasses are carried to the pantry to be placed in a dishwasher and then carried up again....
You may also not want to touch the bedspread (not cleaned often), disinfect the TV remote (never cleaned) and avoid rooms with carpets.
And the video below from China is probably an extreme; the guest must have pissed off the housekeeping staff.
In Asia, staff clean a lot less rooms per day and I expect shortcuts like that to happen less, though I have done checks in the past.
