Land of Smiles

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Yong, I must say the mutton looks nice, and what can I say, "Thai massage". Well worth the money, you have hit on two of the thing I mostly miss being on this side of the border. I can get the mutton or lamb, but probably not as good. The massage I gave up on a long time ago. I prefer a Thai/oil combined, not that easy for the masseuse. Last time! Being a few years ago, I managed to get the shop/spa to agree to 4 hours with a dinner hour in-between. That was at Koh Chang. :bow:
Well if you are over in Cambodia then Thailand is just and hour away. Can come over any time.
When I was at the bar/restaurant in Koh Kong we had 6 massage shops around us, many of the girls were good lookers and could attract their customer, but they could not massage.
Yes, now I live at Phnom Penh and easy to fly then travel by bus. There are a few good Indian restaurants in the city, little things like that keep me happy.

Looks great. Indian food is actually my fav when
I live in Singapore. Got used to southern Indian but lost time when traveling could only get northern Indian food.

Could you please recommend your fav authentic Indian restaurant in Phnom Penh? I’d like to visit next time i visit Phnom Penh.

My first and only visit to Cambodia or Phnom Penh which I spent 3 days there had me decide Cambodian food is not for me like Burmese food. Next visit I should stick to Western and Indian.

yong,, I'm curious to know, when you are at home do you cook or try to recreate some of the meals you have eaten in restaurants. And I'm not referring to just rice.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

I love cooking as a matter of fact the most important part of my home is my kitchen which is why I pay more attention there when I design the house.

Unfortunately due to my work I only have chance to cook during the weekends. Cooking I find helps me to relax from the high pressure I get as a screw salesman. It’s therapeutic.

I usually cook dishes that I miss from home in Singapore.
