Car of Beautiful Online Seller Damaged by Small Boy on a Motorcycle

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Queef, you are so correct. That was median income not average. Average is a measly $51,910. Please don t be disgusted by my error, you know how I hate that look you give. Nice name by the way, what was it about your fair lady that did not disgust you, let me guess.

"On Thanksgiving Day in November 1968, the United States escalated its war against North Vietnam in Laos.

Then-US President Lyndon B Johnson had ordered traditional turkey dinners to be helicoptered in to US troops who were secretly deployed in the quiet, landlocked country to sever the North Vietnamese supply lines that ran through the east.

At the same time, the US began dropping millions of tonnes of bombs - they "fell like rain" on the supply lines in Laos, a network of paths and tracks known as the Ho Chi Minh Trail, and most of the east of the country.

That hugely redoubled effort to shut down the trail saw a planeload of bombs dropped on Laos every eight minutes, 24 hours a day, for nine years."

"Fucking pigs" ?? (USA)
I say, No.
But please spare us the California style pig-ignorant lectures on Thanksgiving manners my friend.

The sweeping statement that "Cambodians have no table manners" is evidently not true to a number of posters. I could quite easily reference a number of British people with atrocious table manners. Along with Australians, Kiwis, Americans et al. Us "civilised" folk!!!!

Lets be honest. America should not have started this and other wars. America has done a lot of terrible things.

When I talk to Cambodians about Australia, I say there is good and bad in Australia.

Lets be honest about Cambodia. Lets be honest about other countries as well.

There are some people who like to put others down.

Good people like to uplift others.

If you are going to help people improve, the first step is for them to understand. This comes from being honest. They wont learn if you avoid the truth.

The U.S. didn't start the Vietnam war. Among a multitude of factors it was a legacy of imperialism: French and Japanese.

Yeah... Honesty... My ma used to tell me I was a "good for nothing" and she wished "I had never been born" whilst stamping on my head and breaking my skull.

She couldn't avoid the truth and I learned well, so now I'm a kind and bald dickwad..

Well said, the 60,000 Australians that served in Vietnam were there to civilize the yellow heathens and all 521 that died in the service of their country were carrying " How to Behave, A pocket Guide to Ettiquite" on them.

"Lets be honest about Cambodia. Lets be honest about other countries as well."

Well then, at least 270 frontier massacres over a period of 140 years have been documented revealing "a state-sanctioned and organised attempt to eradicate Aboriginal people". I take it that if you can t learn where to place the salad fork properly, murder is the solution. You do take being civilized seriously don t you?

Instead of considering them somehow uncivilized you need to realize the difference in how they were raised. We are not inherently superior, and if I was raised in the same circumstances I would behave just as a Khmer would.
Yes, this got me thinking along the lines when people say 'Cambodians don't have table manners'. When they say that aren't they saying Cambodians don't eat in the way westerners are accustomed? Who is to say what is the correct way to eat? Isn't it just customs/culture/tradition?

I once asked Mrs Cargo not to eat with her mouth open coz it bugged me and she was really surprised...she had no idea that it was rude as she sees it as normal way to eat. Now she does it for me albeit I explained it's not considered good table manners in the west.. but......we're living in Cambodia no?

I had lunch once with a chinese/malaysia family who are well off and arguably rich. I couldn't believe how much noise the husband made eating...mouth open, slurping food, burping etc. Australian university educated the lot of them and you can't argue they don't know better or uncivilised. Isn't that the way chinese eat?

The other week I was having lunch in a halal restaurant and a table of indians started eating with their hands. My first thought was..oh, how disgusting... But do you think they would consider they have bad table manners?

PS I was thinking this thread has gone way off topic now but I guess it's moved on from her looks to her eating habits...what next? :mrgreen: Albeit, do we really want to discuss the Vietnam war again here??

Yeah, apologies for restarting the VN war. It just got on my goat when someone referred to Cambodians as eating like
"fucking pigs".
..and then mentioned Thanksgiving in the same breath. (infamous to some us in this part of the world)

Anyway, back to topic
what was it again..??
