American blogger who hates America plans to "live the Cambodian dream"

Post by PhnomRon »

This guy has decided that America is "a nation of entitled, spoiled, shitty, angry people" and the cure is to move to Cambodia, where everyone is sweet and kind and everything is sunshine and roses. Let's see how this goes for him.

Sounds like he's crafted the perfect plan. He'll be living easy and high on the hog on his zero-experience TEFLers wages. Let the good times roll.

Yeah, this guy is on reddit pumping his blog, despite it not being updated.

He says he's moving to Siem Reap in 3 weeks.

He made a preachy reddit post last month saying "Hey everyone! Don't use Cambodia for sex and drugs partying!"



Now he's posting about the big move he's making and how wonderful Cambodia will be, because he can live great on $600-$700 a month and, as he says on his blog, Cambodians are the sweetest, kindest, bestest people in the world and they are never aggressive or violent.

He sounds No-Joke Howard-ish. I hope he enjoys his "Khmer-style room" when he gets there.

This guy seems like he really needs to believe in this right now…I suppose reality will kick in sooner or later, hopefully being alive for 49 years has counted for something. I hope these next three weeks give him the boost he needs.

I guess there's something kind of endearing about this 49-year-old guy who seems to be thinking like an 18-year-old.

It's the exclamation points that get me. He writes about Cambodia the way an 8 year old girl writes about unicorns.
