Let's play the KOW Two sentence rule game.

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.

Let's play the KOW Two sentence rule game.

Post by xandreu » Sat May 25, 2019 12:28 am

You can only write two sentences. One positive and one negative about being an expat in the wonderful Kingdom of Wonder. The only rule is that each must be condensed into one single sentence.

Mine:

Positive: A sense of freedom without the fickle fingers of government wanting to know your every move, transaction, association and lifestyle.

Negative: Sheer disrespect and disregard of the rules of the road.

Positive: If you're friendly, there's a strong sense of camaraderie among friends; they often will do more for you than your own family might, especially in case of emergency.

Negative: The healthcare is really iffy, and certain treatable injuries in other places, say Thailand, may be fatal in KOW.
