Years ago I saw bags of lime in the Kampot Market. Get someone that lives down there to have a look.

@willyhilly might know. (Or he might not).
Who let all of this riff-raff into the room?

Easy enough to find. Think it's called ម្សៅរហ័ស masau rhys. Sold in hardware stores, in chicken feed sacks and that (lime powder or quick lime, if thtas the same thing).

I assume you must mean in Phnom Penh? In the province I've never seen anything like lime at places that have cement. They didn't even have concrete adhesive or concrete epoxy despite asking at several different places.

Are there any particular places that you recommend, or areas of town to check?

Thanks, if that is actually the word in Khmer it will be much easier to find.
