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.

In Cairns we buy Battambang rice, 20kgs is $54. Lasts for weeks, good rice.
That is 2,7$ per kg. That is more expensive than buying 1 kg in a supermarket here in Europe (about 2,00$ p/kg, 8.60$ for 5 kgs) . That suprises me. Or is it better rice than the basmati rice here?

Just heared my GF pays 1,25$ per 2 kg on the market in PP. But that comes from Vietnam, as most of the cheap food in PP. But she also tell me that there is plastic in some of the voetnamese rice. :stir:

She tells me, she prefers to buy from farmer.

That BS rumor has been around for a while. It ignores the fact that it would cost more to make rice sized pieces of plastic than it would for actual rice, and that it would likely float.

That is what she says. It floats and it does not absorb water.
