Advice on Missing Person in Phnom Penh

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. 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.

Why is he nicknamed Hollywood if he's Australian? That sounds like a nickname a guy gives himself. Like T-Bone.
I've known a couple of Aussie "Hollywoods". Probably nicknamed for the same reason they are in the US - vain, shallow, self obsessed with their own looks. Some how the nickname "Coomera" wouldn't quite cut it I don't think! (the Aussies here will get the simile :wink: )

You couldn't accuse this fella of any of those sins. He's actually a gent.
I believe the name came about because his name is pronounced Edwoood locally, and the girls in his favourite bar made the hilarious connection to Hollywood.

Anyway, I'm glad you popped up, hotdigger, as having done my good deed for the year, it's time to go.about spending those annoying green numbers that appear beside posts.
I was wondering how best to do it and the two things that occurred were saying your sister's Yorkshire puddings could be a little lighter in the middle or perhaps writing the word forbidden

LOL mate
1/ It wasn't meant to reflect on him as I'm sure you know! It was a dig at Macgavin, who thinks he knows everything about everything, but in fact knows jackshit about jackshit, as most lawyers do.
2/ My sis has been back in Oz for about 2 years now. 12 years here was enough for her. Nah, actually, her daughter hit school age and she wanted her to have an Ozzie education. Good idea imo! She gave up on yorkshire puddings after those nasty men fromm K440....... nah, not really, she is tougher then any of them by a fukn mile ay! Proved it many times too!
3/ As for spending your Karma points - I have enough for a box of matches, but I'm going to wait 'til I have enough for a 1000 riel cigarette lighter. I would advise you to do the same. Ah, the impetuosity of youth ay :plus1:
