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 I learned from Southeast Asia....

Post by Beerinthemorning » Tue Apr 03, 2018 5:35 pm

I learned many things in my 8 year stint working/living in SEA and OZ .

mostly I learned that the people in SEA all have one thing in common and that is they all tend to think
"my storys is different/ my situation is different"

there are all the same in the end,
they are all running from there problems in the west.
if not then why are they there?
are they there to drink them selfs to death?

perhaps they are running from there shitty 9-5's and there boring routines....

what I do learn is where they end up is the worst possible place for them, a third world poverty strickened corrupt country with a sky high suicide rate and a huge Alcohol problem......

:please: :facepalm:

when is enough ...enough

I know many many people that live, work, ran their own business, raised a family and have retired in SE aisa. Most came for a new experience
Very, very few were running from anything back home.
U hang with some real losers. :beer1:

mmm not quite, I do however observe CEO news perhaps a tad bit closer than you.

I dont see many success stories on there BTW and I havent seen any books/docos written about westerners in the region opening businesses , finding love and living happily ever after in SEA.
