Smoke-free city
or
Chinese tourists

Pick one. This seems like it could be a great thing.

Re: We are moving to Cambodia n i have a question is it easy or hard to get friends in Cambodia.Expats or Cambodia så. o

Finding/making friends in Cambodia is what you make it. You can adapt and integrate into the local culture, learn the language, eat the food, support the local shops, buy at local markets. Or you can live in a Western bubble, only eat at Western restaurants, only hang out with people just like you, ...

Re: Indian tourists

I've both been to India myself and hung out with Indians in Cambodia. Most (not all) of them see themselves as highly important, gracing the rest of the world with a visit from the superior-and-most-amazing-in-every-way country of India. India has the biggest and best everything, always just a bit b...

Re: Patient Complains About Lack of Covid-19 Precautions in Calmette Hospital

Just been to Calmette Hospital. The article is not true. Calmette does their best to separate patients and demand the wearing of muzzles as a condition of entry. All ridiculous in a country where there is no coronavirus but there it is. They are in a difficult situation as they are swamped with pat...

Re: Patient Complains About Lack of Covid-19 Precautions in Calmette Hospital

What total nonsense. There is no coronavirus in Cambodia. Nobody is sick. Nobody has died. Is there one member here who knows a single person in Cambodia who has had coronavirus? No there is not. I was in the waiting room at Calmette a month ago. Everybody was wearing a mask. I still caught a cold ...

Re: Vaccines

It's all very impressive once you take your tin-foil hat off and read up on the actual science behind this vaccine. How dare you, I went to the Facebook Karen School of Medical Science and hence know more than all the doctors and scientists. You get out of here with your "actual science" ...

Best way to send money from Cambodia to US?

My fiance has ABA bank. If he comes to the US, he will bring several thousand dollars with him. I know that you can bring <$10k in without declaring it. We don't think it's a good option to travel with cash. Have any of you transferred money to the US and which method is the best?

Re: Alternator

On a scooter the alternator is called the stator. It runs through a regulator(rectifier). The stator gets electrical excitement from the flywheel(rotor). Similar to a car, it produces higher voltage when running. If you have a new battery but it’s still not getting charged, it’s likely the stator. I...

Re: What have you learnt from Cambodians that you do?

Squatting instead of sitting in a chair. Especially handy if I’m working on something close to the ground. The bum gun. Can’t believe it took me so many years to discover this, but as an American it’s just not something we’re exposed to. TP seems so primitive now. Sharing. Bringing fruit/snacks to a...
