Cambodian UN Peacekeepers Run Over UXO In Mali

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.

I finally had to click on the link to see who's the author after seeing the previous post. He/she did a really good translation or written the article. In his/her shoes, I often find myself with challenges and confusing with the lingua.
Considering how hard it is to read some of your posts I frequently find myself astounded that you get work translating. Then I get a menu offering "French Fried" and "Grilled Clamps" and it all makes sense.

I see that is an encouragement; instead of being defensive in my older days. Truth is, being a trilingual isnt easy...you literally have to switch your writinng and cultural thoughts back and forth; not easy. My vocab in English isnt that great, even though I considered its my first language. I am not trying to be pompous about it; I get ridiculed in whatever language I speak all the time. That is the truth.

Note the winky... I was just giving you a little shit.

But it does surprise me how these translations seem to go. One would think that a native speaker as a final proofreader would be the ideal in those cases... to give the finished product a "once over" and spot obvious discrepancies. Especially at the western owned businesses where that final proofread could come from the clients themselves.

I wasnt pissed at you..well kind of, but rather pissed at myself why I cant naturally switch my tongue and thought; instead I stuttered. I am fluent in 3 languages, just dont make me nervous otherwise I will stutter.

I forgotten what I was going about to say. Anyway, Its not the booze, but there are a lot of things going through my mind in this period financially esp.

My haunted room thread, thing is real...worrying it will disturb my mind, and esp my wife so I didnt want to talk about in anymore. Whatever, I was going to talk about it when I move out. 2 days ago my daughter has no fever, and by fever I mean when you touch someone on the forehead the temperature was normal.....she again played by herself and puked all over the bed. People suggested that I get the monks or the elderlies to get rid of the evil spirits....you really think the iPad monks from the pagoda can get rid of the haunting spirits? Well, t basing from the tales from my parent I heard in my youth and from the elderlies in I think it is there is such thing; but when I said I didnt want to obey to their command, I meant it...if you do, you will forever live in their trap... my daughter for example, she was sick 3 times since she was born and our family had her naturally heal, that is sleep it off no doctor, medicines...just naturally heal like me! But the parents will be sleepless...not doctor visit yet since she was 5 weeks old .

Anyway, when I heard a pregnant (vn) woman who was a previous tenant in this room but died in PP ....so the neighbor said it strikes me. I was going to hit the hay since 1 as usual or before that, I stayed up because I am pissed off of the disturbance during these housr....so far nothing yet. But why the disturbance whenever I am trying to sleep for work the next day and give shit to my daughter!!!

What the fuck did we do?

Kfc, what are you waiting to get the fuck out of there ? I am surprised your wife isn't at her parents already.
Finding a good Kru Borameï (chamman) nowadays in Cambodia might be even more complicate than a good doctor.

I stayed out of this discussion as I wasn't sure you weren't just playing around, but you seem genuinely distressed. I know it's culturally inappropriate to suggest this, but get a Christian minister involved. I can find one for you if you like.

Yes, but it doesn't really matter whether you believe or not when you are trying to assist someone who does believe they have a ghost problem. Or at least it doesn't have to.

Well, I would suggest the first line of action is convincing them ghosts don't exist and then they can be free to start looking for the real world causes to their problem instead of attributing them to imaginary ones.
