33yo Chinese national dies of heart attack, Sihanoukville.

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.

I think the lao lao I drank up near Luang Prabang was spirit strength. Aged in the finest plastic bottles. Most fortified wines come in about T-bird strength (20% ABV). Huangjiu vs baijiu.
