Re: Drunk Man Attacks a Car and his Neighbors

Shocking! Another testament to the justice reform system here. Pay off a cop, back doing as you were. KOW!

(Presuming he has been taken in by the cops before, as the article suggests he has 'been known to attack people when drunk. )

Re: Cambodian Women Warned About Marrying Foreigners

I'm surprised they don't already know that marrying a Khmer guy is the equivalent to a walk in the park, financial and social utopia! I'd hazard a guess that marrying a Khmer guy is a helluva lot more dangerous and fruitless than marrying a foreigner, which might be a reason Khmer women are jumping ...

Absolutely the same when I've tried paying with $US, but lately with Khmer money, especially even the tiny denominations, has been an awakening!!

Re: When is it too late to look for love? (60 yrs)

OP’s mom is specifically looking for a Khmer American between 50-60s. That limits the choices by a lot. Khmer did anything to survive the Khmer Rouge era. And were changed by it. Culturally, Khmer men tend to have mistresses. So it’s not a surprise that he cheated on her. Just one of the reasons Kh...
