Funny English

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.

Missus had the step in with Li Chi.
I expect your missus stepped in with 'kulen' rather than Li Chi.
Who let all of this riff-raff into the room?

No Coming.

Of course they meant No Entry. They should get someone who understands English to make a sign like that.

Yes. I'm waiting for the jokes.

I don't have the pic any longer, but I used to love the old Tonle Bassac restaurant specialty of "Fried Khmer Spies" (spices).

Must be a typo, they meant "drugged Angkor".

In Thailand, a restaurant had "Crap Meat in Whore's Dust" on the menu.

(It was crab curry. Apparently in Thai, curry translates as whore.)

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.
