The Price of Beer in Phnom Penh

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.

In order for the study to be relevant, you will need at least more than one night's expenditure. I propose that you make the same study, but break it up by different nights of the week. My guess is that you might see a pattern in the sharp rises, such as Friday nights and Saturday nights? I think this needs to be measured over a more sturdy control period of, say, minimum two weeks :beer1: :hattip:

Is it that of (maybe) catching up for lost time, with a return to the country not that long ago! Or has this drinking, eating, mongering habit been a continuation of a retirement plan. :beer3:

This is a fairly constant pattern for a long while.
0-5 Low risk
6-8 medium risk
9-12 high risk
13+ train wreck

Earlier in the week is lower risk, end of week is increased risk, no through work commitments but more cultural habits of the weekend as being ok to getting off your tits.

I have been thinking of leaving home with just $5, but my credit is good where I go so that's no guarantee.

Leave home with $20 is better, we don't want to loose another poster getting arrested returning to a bar to pay the tab :thumb:

That's a good point. Plus, ABA E-Cash is always a source of funds. I think I'm doomed...

I'd have to drink that much, just to go to sleep on that bed spread. But doc, seriously a bit more practice, a couple more weeks with your flow charts, and you'll be a full blown alcoholic. It's great when someone reaches there goals. Well done, lucky bugger 👍🍻
