Living well, cheap

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. 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.

YES, I will out myself with my real name joe bloggs.
I am working on a new business project, an online supermarket http://www.khmertogo.com
it is by no means complete, but please do have a look and i would welcome your criticism/
Many of the prices published are just placeholders, but if you have an interest, please contact me for a quote.
There will be around 1000 items listed by this time next month,and it is free delivery for a $35 order.
We have a very acceptable red or white table wine from Spain at $6/ bottle by the dozen as a pre opening special.

Mention CEO when you register and I will be happy to include something extra free of charge on your first order.
We have excellent quality British sausages in several styles that are likely better quality than what you get in UK, made right here in Phnom Penh, and real Bacon- not that streaky flabby stuff beloved of Americans,
If I mention telesales do I get a 20% increase on the quoted prices?

Why? Did he advertise for me :-) ?
We can certainly arrange to send to the provinces if you would like to nominate transport.
Will eventually be thousands of items on here.
If you click on the actual item, you will see the quantity advertised.
The site is optimised for phones so the descrpition is truncated.
As mentioned above- it is kind of slow on phones right now because compression is not yet enabled while we are working on the code.
