Re: a good read; "myths from the Cambodian genocide still reign"

Reminds me of me jokingly saying "kluon barang - kbal khmer" or sth along those lines to some motodubs. It was pretty awkward, they looked at me like a ghost. Never tried it again.

Re: The Twitter Files

I don't really get it. Please correct me if I'm wrong in my following assumption, as I am not from the US and don't know much about US laws. Do private companies like Twitter or Facebook have to be politically neutral? No. Can the political stance of a private company violate the 1st amendment? No. ...

Re: My wife needs a proof she didn't pay taxes

You are pretty on point there, Freightdog. The amount of my untaxable income increases, I think. Am not the most sophisticated taxpayer, lol. (and yes, she was working in a small shop before covid, but I doubt there was paperwork involved) I left Cambodia in 2019 and went back to Germany, where I or...

Re: My wife needs a proof she didn't pay taxes

I am trying to get some of my income tax back here in Europe. As I am obliged to fund her, if she is not working, parts of the allowance can be "refunded" by my government. Anyway, I talked to the tax office again today, and it seems the form is not needed anymore. My tax advisor was wrong...

My wife needs a proof she didn't pay taxes

As the title said, in order to get back some €'s I paid to support her after she lost her job due to Covid, she/we need this form signed and stamped. It has to prove that she didn't pax tax (cause not working) and therefore needed financial assistance. She went to the tax department today and they s...

Re: How is it for YOU returning to live in the west after several years abroad?

You spoke a lot of truth there, Ghostwriter, the last detail being the filter! :hattip: One misses so many of the small threads that make up the cultural net while abroad.

And nobody cares, nobody understands, yes. How could they? :shrug:

Re: Do you conjugate verbs around Cambodians or just use baby talk?

Is using Khmer grammar (no conjugation, less prepositions etc.) in English akin to "baby English"? Does that imply that Khmer grammar is infantile? Khmer grammar is very different from English grammar, but I wouldn't call it infantile, because using it in the correct way beyond 'pidgin' K...
