Cows crossing causes 5 vehicle smash, Kampong Speu

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.

I bet the company will milk the cows' owner for all he is worth.
Best to read the fine print in the insurance papers first. The owner may have insured the cows for causing such an accident.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Sure. How likely is it that a farmer has his cows insured when (almost) nobody in Cambodia insures vehicles or property for accident, fire, theft ?
Btw, how many of you have insured your vehicles or property for whatever ?

Slowing down and leaving space between vehicles would greatly reduce the frequency of this kind of shit. Fenced in cattle too. Oh well.

Surely importing a million Chinese and building 50 more high rise condos will help. Stay tuned.

The end of dry season is when many farmers untether their cattle and let them proleng jawl which is the local idiom to let them roam freely to find suitable pastures. Years ago when there was less traffic it was acceptable, but customs rarely keep up with the times in Cambodia. Almost every day for the last month I've had to chase a small herd of 7-8 head of cattle from my yard.

An interesting footnote to " proleng jawl" is that wives will use it jokingly to refer to husbands who think the grass is greener on the other side.
As my old Cajun bait seller used to say, "I opes you luck.

Neither did I.

Ps to Taa: IMHO your idioms translation threads would attract more popularity with this kind of topics instead of the recent curses and others serious matters you went for :mrgreen:

I think in the Brit Wayne Brewster's case the grass was definitely greener on this side.
