what I learned from Southeast Asia....

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

What’s wrong with Texas? Transplanted Texan and proud of it. In the KOW, bragging about how poor you are (tell the locals you collect cans for a living) seems to be work better than anything. Even the jaow walk the other way when they see me (joking!).
the SEA expats mentality is to act HI-SO when your not , not the opposite.

I've been to Texas and if I were "transplanted" I would be grateful for it, not proud of it.

Nothing at all wrong with Texas, I have some good friends from Texas. If only it weren't so small though....

That's what happens when you are an uncultured and utterly ignorant bogan. It's your choice to remain so. Other people manage to get on with their lives by educating themselves and finding interests. Meanwhile you continue to visit places you have little or no understanding of while complaining about people you have never met or interacted with. Your world revolves around cheap beer and hookers and boasting about BS salaries. Check yourself mate, you are living a miserable existence. The good news is it's never too late to change.

I for one, admit to being a little slow; However, I believe I see a consistent click bait campaign here. Well done boys.
