Most shocking/weirdest/ stories from Tbong Khmum Province.

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Does anyone else get kissed by beggars, or am I just really sweet ? Or is this an obscure SV custom that I didn't know about ? :oops:
There's a member here that's always asking people to kiss his asp, so I think it's got something to do with living in the villages.
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.

It literally translates as Amber. However, some people on forums dispute this as apparently there is no amber in that area.
