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.

Speaking of Sri Lanka, a few years ago a SR bloke from a very poor fishing village was sent to market to get some sugar by his wife. As he had no money he wandered to the beach where his mates were working on their fishing boats. One of hem said we are going to Australia do you want to come and he decided that as he would be in the shit when he got home without sugar he said yes.
The boat was picked up near Christmas Island and the occupants were assessed as economic applicants and flown back to SR.
An empathetic officer gave him a box of sugar sachets to take home to appease his wife when he finally arrived home a month after setting out for the market. Hope she was happy with his gift to her.
