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.

Good to see the trash collectors are back at work in Sihanoukville.

A Sihanoukville expat with only 482 days of overstay? I feel like he deserves some sort of outstanding citizen award.

I'm sure he has a perfectly good explanation for his over stay.
Maybe he was robbed and been living on the streets for 482 days.

Update: This was posted yesterday on social media. Good news for him. He doesn't look very healthy in those photos. Sometimes it's just time to leave.

Eddie was running the Cider Shack until earlier this year, but with no WP, no visa, and then no restaurant, things were bound to get difficult.
Safe home then. It could be worse.
