Introduce Yourself

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.

Thanks for the thought Duncan! It's certainly a big decision. Oh one hand an undoubted better education system in Oz! On the other hand extended family and learning Khmer! It will be a tough decision and any more thoughts would be welcome
Very simple. Stay in Oz for the kids' education.

As for learning Khmer. You speak English to the kids, and mum can speak Khmer to the kids.

You can speak to the extended family via Facebook or Skype.

Keep in mind that a Uni degree from Cambodia will only be recognized in Cambodia, but a Uni degree from Oz will be recognized world wide.

I'm raising 3 kids here, it costs me over $500/mo for a third rate education.

Thanks Taken, looks like the advice is that we should stay in Oz! Cheers

Hi there,

I'm Ghostwriter,
I used to live in KOIndonesia from 2005 to 2015, then in TempleTown & PP from 2015 to 2018,
then moved back to KOF (kingdom of Frogs) since less than a year.

It has been a interesting stay in SR & PP, but also exhausting and risky.

I have been reading very interesting posts both on Khmer440 & CEO, and some very funny ones too. I even enjoy the dickiest ones, and witty humour.

And I like English, although not my mother tongue.

So here i am.

**little reverence with a hat gesture, and a fart.**
Nevermind, i'm not here anyway.

Hello, thought I’d join up to keep up to date with the online world of Cambodia. Lived here for a while now, I like it. I guess I’m a bit of a satirist, so I hope my posts won’t offend anyone personally. I see that there are many that operate in this vein here anyway so I can’t see it being a problem. Anyway, this site seems like it is a good place to share ideas etc on life and current events in Cambodia. Thanks for the platform, now enough about me...

Hello, My name is Josh, 28. I'm from USA and planning on moving to Cambodia in August (2019) to be an ESL teacher and join NGO work. I am aiming for Phnom Pehn area, so any advice on jobs, apt, social life is appreciated! I am LGBT, gay so feel safer in the bigger cities. Hope to meet some cool people in Asia :)
