Mr Butterfly Hostess Bar On Street 136 Raided For the 3rd Time Over Loud Music

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.

They should be on a winner with the curved outdoors counter like the place on the corner of Nana Plaza. But the girls are pretty ordinary and the passing trade is nothing like Nana obviously. The ladyboy who has been around for years, I think she started at Up Down proudly showed me her third Australian tourist visa! I have boyfriend in Sydney.

I know, it's their culture.
I got this response when I whined about this during my 1st extended stay in snooky a couple years ago. where I learned about it after a '3 am drunk stumble in' and all to short sleep.

I got to wondering just how long khmers have had electricity, amplifiers and huge metal speakers..(especially in the more remote areas)..?

it can't possibly be one of the 'traditions' that's been around for too many years...

(sure the music/chanting, but not the abnormal amplification!!! )

just sayin'

cheers

Almost a century. Speakers can be run off batteries or generators so you don't necessarily need a grid.

in Cambodia?

ok, maybe. but color me dubious.

would have been some interesting circuitry/parts in the amp's back in 1916.
along with the cost of such items.

just sayin'

The days of this place are numbered. There was a fight started inside and carried outside over a bill and looked like police involved again. Friday night around midnight. Too early for the drunkest of the drunks to even be out yet. Not sure what I was doing out so early myself? It was two foriegners and one a little bloody. Dont know the ending but looked scary with many shouts from the police at manager lady.
