In Cambodia everything is kept a secret.
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.

My Aussie pal's (Khmer) Missus got pregnant. (By him apparently, for clarification.) She had photos of the ClearBlue piss-test up on Facebook before she even left the bathroom to tell him!!! :lol:

When it came to discussions about Aussie passport, he mentioned DNA test being required (whether or not it wasn't!!). Cue - fireworks!! :evil:

that sounds like her way of putting shackles on him lol. Would love to have seen her face when DNA was mentioned....
I guess some do not shout about it for fear of their dads kicking their arses...

Remember reading some research that found 40% of DNA tests proved the 'father' ordering the test was not the real father. So this research was in situations where the 'father' had some suspicion he may not be the Dad.

Lesson is if you think you may not be 'Papa' you have close to a 50% chance your right!!!!!!
