The Celebration of Water Festival Canceled

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.

So they won't close the roads? Thank fuck for that. My apartment was locked in last time and I had to walk all the way to the pickled parrot and stay there drinking for 3 days.

AM, It's rainy season. No need to worry about drought. Hehheh just a heavy rain, there will flood in the city then flow it into the river and share to provinces. :-)

What in God's name does your previous post have to do with the OP? Damnable facebook mentality.

If I had a zebra, I would paint the black bits white, glue a toilet roll tube to its head, cover it with glitter, and sell it as a unicorn.

The directive states that "the preparation for the Water Festival in the provinces can be held normally, following tradition and based on the ability of the organizing authorities."
Did I get this right ? Water levels are ok for the festival in the provinces, but not in PP ?
Not quite. You missed the important bit at the end of the sentence, "based on the ability of the organizing authorities".
Ability meaning which party controls the province.

Thanks for the translation. I could see it was in code, but I'm not yet fluent in officialspeak.
Do we know which provinces could have a water festival according to this "ability" ? Most smaller towns sound like a more appealing destination than PP anyway.

Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
