The future of Cambodia looks increasingly Chinese

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.

Damn, and here was everyone hoping it would be an American clone, because that worked out so well, apart from the carpet-bombing, supporting the Khmer Rouge, the Lon Nol loan and the small matter of 2.5 million dead. Kissinger needs to be involved again, right?

I wonder if it's time we all learned some Chinese phrases...

"Hey, there's a line."
"Please wait your turn, I was already being served."
"At least aim somewhere when you spit, and not on my feet, good woman."
"Your friend is standing right next to you and it's quiet - you probably don't both need to be shouting as loudly as you can."
"Now, the general aim is to keep the SUV on the road, preferably on the correct side, without hitting anything else."
"Oh, sorry I didn't stop when you deliberately stepped in front of me. Do you need a hand back up?"

Given that the "Big Man" lives most of each year in his large villa outside Beijing, this is no surprise at all.

How do I say this in Chinese?
"Fuck off back to your own country"

狗屁 (gŏu pì) - literally 'dog fart' and is the equivalent of 'bullshit'.

猪头 (zhū tóu) - try calling the dominant male in the group 'pig head', should always go well.

狗崽子 - (gǒu zǎizi) - literally 'little puppy' but equates to 'son of a bitch'.

白痴 - (báichī) - idiot.
