Why I do not feel any guilt being rich

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.

And about the concept of savings - Cambodians are very aware of that but they just have a different concept than you. Ever noticed the amount of gold the average Cambodian is carrying around? Those are their savings.
Difficult to say no when they are now related to you. It’s always the indirect ask, never to you, always to the missus. Either give me X, or I take the family land to the bank to borrow. Also seem to pawn gold and jewelry at an alarming rate. Sometimes unable to buy back the jewelry and then ask to borrow money to buy replacement jewelry. Thank goodness no cows, just chickens. The incessant rooster at 4 AM, noon, and other ungodly hours is quite enough.

Sometimes you just have to be a cheap ass. When shit hits the fan, like when a flooding damages the house, I step in and support repairs for a part, but when the old motorbike needs to be replaced by a new Honda Dream 2018 I turn into a cheap ass. If they want to pawn gold or land, I let them. It's their gold and land, not mine. Relatives are adults too, you know, and they have done it their way before me and they will do it their way after me. I've found out it's pretty useless to try to convince them do things my way, they simply can't or don't want. So be it.

From my limited experience, I have learned that only wannabes and nouveau riche advertise their wealth.

Secondly, many people are delusional about what constitutes real wealth.

Thirdly, being rich is, in itself, not good or bad.

Only simpletons do not understand that is the WAY in which one got 'rich' that determines whether it is good or bad.

'Tis the season to be jolly, troll lalala lalalala
Right, two things matter about money:
How you got it.
How you spend it.

Ok poor peasantS,I’m rich and I feel no shame and need not explain myself to you peasantS,it obviously gets to you in such a way because obviously none of you commenting have ever reached the basic entrance level of $ which is a mere $10 milly so you will never overstand or comprehend how it feels And what it takes to be rich,you most likely all rent cheap low class housing in Cambodia and not for nothing let me say this ,you take tuk tuks or better then that you drive scooters lol or bikes and do not have the luxury of waking up and jumping into your luxury suv,sedan,etc with lovely leather warm seats which massage your back,I personally have 3 of such vehicles in Cambodia and 9 globally in other countries,my chariot of choice is a Rolls Royce ,believe it or not,now sure it’s a car and any car serves the same purpose but no it’s not just a car it’s a choice ,it’s a Rolls Royce ,I often hear poverty stricken barangs discussing my car when I’m in a public place with my car in view ,they always say “what’s the use of buying such a expensive car in Cambodia,the roads are not good” blah blah etc etc


So..should I feel bad that I’ve worked smart in my life time,should I care about 30-70yr old dried out caviar on this forum commenting there lewd comments because their lives are far from what they wished for themselves ,I personally never talk down or comment negatively on post of other people but that’s because I’m rich ,I’m typing this while my body guard drives me to get my feet chiseled and after that I’m going to take a charter to Seoul tonight so I can get some skin whitening cream (very expensive cream) for a birthday party of a wealthy locals son .

Troll. Your grammar and writing style makes it unlikely that you can hold down a job, much less earn a future. Having said that, if someone like Trump can amass a fortune, I guess anything is possible.
