Banlung: $40k toilet built for Thai princess to be used once

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.

guys this is the good princess but wonder whose fucking idea this waste of $$ was;
Following an hourlong meeting with Prime Minister HE at his of­fice building, Princess Sirind­horn­ flew by helicopter to the pop­ular Yeak Lom Lake in Ban­lung City, where a luxurious outhouse had been constructed at her request—and at an estimated cost of more than $40,000.
The princess, however, did not make use of the bathroom during her brief sojourn.

“She did not use the toilet…but she went to see the bathroom,” said deputy provincial governor Nhem Sam Oeun. “When she went back to Phnom Penh, they re­moved the modern toilet.”

The bathroom, which was built over the course of 19 days by a team of Thai laborers hired by the Bangkok-based Siam Cement Group (SCG), made international head­lines over the weekend. In an interview on Friday, author An­drew MacGregor Marshall de­scribed the structure as “an insult to the Cambodian people.”

Rude. She could have pinched one out to make it all seem worth while. That's just common courtesy.

Are you saying she is more prince than -ss? :oops:

"We hate to inform you that Princess Sirindhorn visit ( 2 damn hours) ended without her ever using that $40,000 Toilet, No Flushing. No Shit!

Buttt, the Princess did not even go inside the “Royal Mighty Toilet”. She just looked at it from outside and took some pictures. These are some Shitty Expensive Pictures! Wat a waste of money!"

Butt , everyone's got it wrong. Latest newspaper reports say, it's not a toilet, cause there is no toilet in it. [ it's been removed ]
Lets blame it on the media. Image
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.

More on "this is NOT a toilet" :ROFL:

... Nhem Sam Oeun, a deputy provincial governor who previously confirmed that the building was an outhouse, said on Sunday he had only gathered information through informal sources, and had not actually seen inside.

“I just thought that [it was a bathroom] through chatting with other people,” he said of the building, now meant to become a community office. “It has affected not only the province and provincial authorities, but also the country as a whole, because it does not sound good saying we are using a toilet as an office.”...

Sounds like it could all be a dastardly plot to undermine Cambodia's good name. They should chill out, this will make a great tourist attraction. I'm sure that all the locals have already posted their Yaklom toilet selfies on Fb.
