Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Fuck fuck fuck.

I knew him really well, we worked together a few years back, really nice guy.

Went back to oz to go through uni, he was huge, but lost a ton of weight 'tonnes of fun' was his nickname.

He's been counting down the days to come back to visit, and was enjoying landing in Shitsville a few days ago.

I know they all say this, but he wasn't on drugs (at least from what I saw).

It takes a fair bit to shock me, but shocked and upset I am. A good fellow.

Rip Mike.

Michael was a dear friend of mine and I'm absolutely heartbroken about these news. He loved Cambodia and was here on vacation. Even though he was studying full time he still managed to meet his friends, former students and former colleagues. Michael was a sweetheart and he will be missed by all of those that had the pleasure to meet him.

He didn't smoke or do drugs. I know this for a fact.

Please, if you write something remember that his friends and family are looking, trying to make sense of it all.

Rest in peace my friend, I love you

He had had problems with his health before but this came as huge shock to everyone. He left this world from Cambodia, the country he loved dearly
