Re: Has McDonald's lost its fucking mind?

https://i.imgur.com/ERVi3Ew.jpg Haha! That's clever and funny. But don't let the date fool you. The Hawaiian pizza was created in Toronto in 1962 by a Greek-born Canadian restauranteur. It's not my favourite pizza flavour but I do like the ham and pineapple version -- always thin crust pizza, whate...

Re: PNH Duty Free Cigarette Prices

The central market vendors have sleeves (10 packs) of many brands, starting from about $10. Duty Free doesn't mean profit free and many of these airport shops pay crippling rents to be there and have to get it back somehow. For genuine products such as cosmetics, after shave etc they are possibly g...

Re: PNH Duty Free Cigarette Prices

I recall something like US$23/carton for my brand, Mevius; a very similar price for the Marlboros. This was in early 2019 at a PNH duty-free shop after getting stamped INTO Cambodia. I didn't buy there because I knew I could get them cheaper downtown: about a $1.50 a pack at the time. There's a coup...

Re: 6,386kg of Vietnamese Prawns Injected with Unknown Substance Confiscated and Destroyed

That's a pretty small fire for a truck load. And that's a pretty small gap between the fire and the can of petrol without an air tight cap. https://i.imgur.com/rCvSncj.jpg BREAKING NEWS... Custom agents blow up while cooking prawns... LOL. That's a pretty sad looking container for inflammable fluid...

Re: 6,386kg of Vietnamese Prawns Injected with Unknown Substance Confiscated and Destroyed

Pretty good spotting by the Khmers. Man, the Viets just can't stop themselves from adulterating food. The Khmers also banned Thai pork exports -- African Swine Flu infected pork and, in the past, headed off shipments of spoiled pork.

Re: Thailand Travel Restrictions and Info

yong Blame the Thais for complicating matters to the Nth degree. Here's more from the Tourism Authority of Thailand, posted about 8 pm Thai time. But it seems like the earlier info still stands. While existing rules under the scheme remain unchanged, the CCSA approved additional requirements to ens...

Re: Covid in Cambodia, what do you think the temparature of the water is?

Omicron is in town and doing the rounds. Many won't even know they have/had it. Many will pass it off as a cold or a bad hangover that wont go away. Everyone is going to make it's acquaintance and the sooner the better. We saw in South Africa, and now the UK, cases peak very quickly and then come d...
