Khmer Fail

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Khmer Fail

Posting pics is back on the menu. Now the the ads pic button is above the keyboard. Whoever fixed it in Tapatalk, kudos.

Here’s a khmer fail. Seen many a pig on the streets taken to market on a moto, this one didn’t make it. Pig wins.

Pig wins in a Karma sort of way? He (presumption, not important) doesn't look up to celebrating his victory...

I just don’t get why people slag off their adopted country.

Not just him but some long termers too.

Such friendly demeanor. No wonder newbies, long term lurkers, and locals are afraid to share.

As to slagging off to my adopted country. I’m half attached to it for life. Will always be a tourist here.

Just walked around the village with the missus and the nephews and niece last evening.

The villagers were surprised that I didn’t look like a sexpat nor a mainland Chinese that kidnaps local women.

Newest villager gossip after the announcement. After the money flash, I must be paying a super huge amount for the wedding. And that I’m buying land and a building house in the village for missus.

Will wait a little longer for the villagers to spread new rumors that I’m spending a million on the whole thing (dollars, not riel) and that she’s getting a Lexus to boot.

Well me being closely related to the Ngapuhi tribe in The Land of the Long White Cloud, I would never slag off my adopted country across the ditch or my cousins that live there.

Not sure what a sexpat looks like but a guy who comes over to an impoverished country looking to find a woman, then refers to " importing " her back to his home country like something acquired off Amazon overseas wouldn't be far off the mark for me.
Never trust a man who when left alone with a tea cosey, doesn't try it on.

Not to burst your bubble but if the villagers are saying that they have probably been told that from either your Mrs or some of her family.

Even if it’s not true the rumors are a great way for them to look good to the villagers.

New kid does seem to think he’s a class above every other expat here.

I’ve got news for you; You’re not the first to marry a “good girl” and get lots of attention from locals and family. It’ll soon wear off.
