The story of "Miss Poppy" dates back to 2001 when she won Cambodia's first transvestite beauty pageant:

Gender-benders take a bow
Fri, 30 March 2001
"Miss Poppy," born Leang Sothea, finds acceptance in success.
Miss Poppy embraced her female identity in front of thousands of television viewers on March 19 when she was crowned Cambodia's first transvestite beauty queen. Born as Leang Sothea, the19-year-old triumphed over 30 other Cambodian trans-vestites who stepped out of the closet to take part in TVK's Thai-style "lady-boy"beauty queen contest.

You obviously haven't frequented thailand's ladyboys bars enough.
This is usually referred as "attitude" and is quite unique to their kind.

Obviously not, and I certainly don't feel like I've missed out on anything. Anyway, driving around smashing into stuff is no smiling matter, whatever your gender. I'm glad to see nobody was hurt, but I'm always dismayed by the lack of seriousness given to stuff like this.

Even this. Like who the hell leans against their wreck on a busy road without any emergency cones/ barriers etc and starts playing fucking Facebook, or whatever dumb shit you do on a phone in the middle of a road. :?

We barang usually call them tree branches.

That's because she secretly thinks she will successfully sue the road divider for maximum compensation.$$$
