Re: Why do Cambodians eat so badly?

$$$ goes back to the KR era when they ate whatever they could find.. Misleading facts. Pre Khmer rouge regime Cambodia was economically OK.

Re: Vietnamese Man and his Dutch boyfriend, Stefan Struik Arrested By Police For Physically Abusing A Boy

Any idea on what charges he is facing in Vietnam and how long a term he could face based on the charges?

I was told you now also have to show your marriage certificate also.

Re: Two Cambodian Men and A Dutch Guy, Stefan Struik Arrested By Police For Involving in Physically Abuse A Boy

It should be noted the Viet guy was charged in Cambodia and it is unlikely he will ever be back here to actually face the charges. I don't know how long, if any, time he will have to serve in Vietnam. Sure, once the Vietnamese authorities have put him through the processes (last I heard was he had ...
