Reminds me of a incident 5 plus years ago , I was walking along the footpath wanting to cross the road but couldn't cause the cars were bumper to bumper. Up ahead there was a gap and a group of 20 people blocking the foot path and as I squeezed passed them towards the gap, a Lexus pulled up , double parking and blocking the way.
Out steps a Cambodian girl, straight from the airport, looking like a movie star and everyone greets her like long lost friends welcoming her home and giving her big hug's. I'm about the number ten hugger in line cause I cannot get past, and I say welcome home . I'm overwhelmed by the smell of Channel Number 10 perfume and am tongue tied, but Im a good hugger. She asked ,,, do I know you, who are you ?
I point behind me and say Sopheas husband .


Pissed me off cause I had to walk back 100 m passed the bumper to bumper cars to cross the road all because her chauffeur didn't move the car.
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.
