Re: Prisoners dying while incarcerated has increased dramatically

39.000 inmates, 253 deaths.
So approx 1 out of 160 each year, a mortality rate of 7 per 1000. That doesn't seem a big number.
Could the 2017 numbers be underrated ?

Re: Motorbike for my girl ... your advice ?

I bought my Honda Wave alpha 3 years ago, 840$. New one, assembled in Vietnam. I've not had problem with it (yet), good deal IMO. So i'm a bit surprised to read here that the price for it could be up to 1.3 - 1.6 k$... Anyone bought one recently ? 3 years ago the Wave Alpha was $1300-1350. You prob...

Re: Famous Football Coach Spotted Arriving in Cambodia

He's also the best paid manager in football with 3.3 M euros per month. Yep, that means he's making a bit more than 100K every single day, even when visiting Cambodia.

Re: watch out for those Thai ladies

Is the guy foreigner or Thaï ?
Most likely Thaï :
"The man said he was drunk and had not intended to scorn the woman. He declared he would definitely give up alcohol. If he lost his job as a result, he would return to his home province."

I'm french and I've played football for more than 20 years. My nephew is 6yo and plays football in France. And, believe me or not, we like animals/pets. Surprising, isn't it ?

Re: Cambodia-China Friendship Bridge Between Kampong Cham and Tbong Khmum to Open in 2021

It would be good to see counter-offers and genuine aid (if it is not too late, with contracts inked) from US, whom we rely on, because they have committed to the preservation of a balance of world power, and the protection of human rights and democracy, and protecting allies, as part of the latest ...

Re: Easiest way to Stay Long Term? (for 35 yr old)

Anyone who has lived in Cambodia for a reasonable amount of time has met plenty of people who arrived with more than that and ended up destitute, and they were mostly a lot older than 35. Usually dudes post-divorce arriving with the 50% of assets they were left with after getting fleeced. Bad idea ...
