Cambodia is Introducing (Paying) Personalized Car Plates

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.

You don't like the local fresh scallops and sole at Topaz?
Or the wankers who think this olde worlde poseur's palace, constitutes fine dining.

Nose uplifted to just right angle - I'll have the grilled sole, Thank Yoou.
in cambodia!

National Bank of Cambodia - here's the new design versus the old one which has now been demolished.

Is this NBC you're referencing even on Norodom?

I don't think it is. And I clearly stated in my post the I was referring to the construction on Norodom Blvd.

Absolutely on Norodom, north end ... straddles 118 & 130 if that helps jog the ol' memory?

Great, not anywhere near the reconstruction of CPP hq, which I was referencing.

Thanks for turning this thread into a soup sandwich spigzoid.

Brody is talking about the CPP headquarters on Norodom near the overpass that heads to Takhmau. Truly overkill in its almost stalinist proportions. There are tons of those CPP HQs littered around the country. There's a huge upgraded one on on Highway 4 now which I doubt they could often fill (well, except when they pay villagers $5 and food to come for a "rally"). I do think they're paid for by rich party members as a means of tribute, errr, I mean party contributions.

Well said.

Yeah, they're really showing everyone where the bear shits in the woods with that one.

But instead of asking any hard, critical thinking questions about it.........once finished, Khmers will just travel past it, say "sa'art" and continue on with their hand-to-mouth existence.
