Living well, cheap

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.

So barang talk about barang and Khmers talk about Khmers. Fancy that.

So both parties learn a lot from each other.

If you know a lot, know enough to make them respect you, if you are stupid, be stupid enough so they can pity you.

Hey Richard, you actually learn a lot from those videos and pictures. You learn that the traffic in Cambodian is really bad and there are so many stupid drivers and they are really selfish. So, you are more careful when travelling in Cambodia.

This answer has to be a pisstake right?

no not at all, its a valid point, it raises awareness, espeshially to those that are less educated, even with my western upbringing, seeing all the vids and pictures i do certainly makes me more aware of the roads out here :good:

My ass thought that i could drive as fast as I want if I paid attention. Khmers don't pay attention so I was correct. Attentiveness, if that's a word, doesn't matter when you're flying down the center of a traffic jam at 80km an hour and another moto pulls out trying to do the same thing as you.

I didn't read the whole thread but reading the title, I can't help. I'm giving my cousin 100 a month to make sure I get three meals a day. Some days I'm not home, but its not her making me meals anyways. I'm rambling now. Woot.
