While "teuk" does indeed mean "water" I don't think that's the issue here since OP's wife said,* Fuck all to do with cooking." (I assume "fuck all" is OP's version of her response.) Hence the need to look for idiomatic meanings.

I don't think it is idiom as the topic is stuff for cooking and not his wife interpret like this( not OP's wife). If we say មុខជូរ ( Muk Jour ) source face means unhappy face.

No. The OP didn't say that. The first respondent (popeye) to the OP mentioned the wife.

You are quite correct UT, I did indeed misread the thread. I still stand by the idiom. Consider it an extra or a throw away as you will.
