Orange Dragon

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.

I cleaned the last few posts up completely.

Come on gentlemen. There is another forum that encourages that kind of crap if you just want to get online to be a dickhead.
"Life is too important to take seriously."

"Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh."

That seemed to be the only thing really keeping you attached to Cambodia in some way, so I can see how your interest would have drifted away from the place if it eventually didn't work out. Feel free to PM me if it's a touchy subject (or simply not answer). Either way, good luck in life.

Hey, hey, don't pry into the man's personal affairs.

He found he other forum after doing some googling and running across my article "7 Reasons Why I Probably Shouldn't Marry a Cambodian Woman."

He told us he was thinking of getting married, and I specifically advised him:

"Slow down. Breathe. Long engagement."

No one listens to me. No one.

If people listened to me, everyone would be single forever and happy.
Haha.. Are you single and live happily ? It is good that I could read what they talk about their women in the forum. Khmer said " telling about our family problem to others is like showing our private area to others to see". Not everyone you can trust!

Rutiger wrote:Looking at old posts from this forum, I see "Orange Dragon" played a very prominent role in starting this site and used to post a lot but now doesn't post at all. What's the history there? Did he sell his stake to the other partner and move on? I clicked on his posted Twitter feed and saw he doesn't update that anymore either. In fact, there seems to be several previously hardcore CEO posters who don't post here anymore (looking at the top 5 by member post count). Maybe just 'forum burnout' or something. Or maybe the general nature of expats in Cambodia is to move on after a few years whereas they seem to hunker down for decades in Thailand (or used to, maybe that has been changing lately with visa changes, etc). Just my initial observation. I know some settle down and start families and stay in Cambodia long term too, but it doesn't seem near as many, percentage-wise.
The perception of Cambodia expats, at least until the last 5 or so years, was that they were either 1st Class - "worldly" UN types, aid workers, or highly qualified and experienced freelancers (many of whom still post on the various forums; LTO, whatshisname who seemingly knows all the diplomatic corps in Phnom Penh) - or 3rd Class - trash bottomfeeders who fell off the very bottom of the Thai expat scene. Quite a few from 1st Class will do their contract in Cambodia for a few years and then follow the money to another place (Africa, South America, elsewhere in SE Asia) because that's where their university degree (engineering, science etc.) or corporate connection takes them.
