Golden Sorya Mall transformed into "Phnom Penh Pub Street"

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.

Why have they kept that "Golden Sorya Mall" sign and the old shitty gold frontage?
I thought they were trying to rebrand?
i really hate the new pub street font, its just a scribble and drives my OCD up the wall, its like a toddler has written it!

I don't think it even is a font, someone has just made it by hand (all the "Ps" are different". I agree that it's shit.

Now I wish I hadn't looked at the "font". I can't unsee that ugly, childish script. :facepalm: =@ =@ =@

Drove past there yesterday in a cramped minivan and Mrs Stroppy pointed out the renovations. We're occasionally involved in a good works thing that's based over the road.

I've noticed the arrival and increased useage of the plural noun "decrepits" with regard to the patrons of this area, and found it offensive. As we were driving past, I thought to myself, "Oh, now I get it."

If you're one of those that were there at the time, I'm sure it wasn't you I saw ... you were, umm... in the bathroom?
Spoiler:
Relax, we'll all be decrepit one day.

Really? We are supposed to believe that some twenty of khmer entrepreneurs rent these small areas for at least 1000$/month without, of course, get discount because they are friends with The Man ? :clap:

My guess is when they start the comstruction work , they find a big package of ice/yaba belonging to the previous ppl, proceed to smoke real hard on it , then they speak about the rent rates !
