February 20, 2021, Covid Community Outbreak (Koh Pich and Beyond)

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.

i don't understand the expression 'chinese nationals'
it's not as though they're ethnically diverse
they're nearly all han
but in any case, they're all just 'chinese'

you never see the phrase 'american nationals', which would perhaps be more useful

It's an expression used to differentiate Chinese who were actually born in China from those who have Chinese ethnicity but have probably never actually been in China. There are ethnically Chinese people who have lived and traded in this region for centuries. They haven't got much in common with these mainlanders who have turned up in recent years.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

Most Chinese-Cambodians have stayed amongst themselves ever since their ancestors came here and preserved their Chinese heritage making them quite different from the Khmer both in looks and culture

HE must have a very loud voice to be heard at the end of that thing.
He’s ( HE ) has to have a Bluetooth speaker for that guy at the end who seems to be straining his ears 👂

You are so right, the Glenfiddich 12, 15 and 18, the Macallan 12, the Oban 14, the Dewar's 12, sigh...
