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.

Orange Dragon

Post by Rutiger » Fri Mar 04, 2016 7:33 am

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.

He only lived here for a year or so and then returned to the states, I think he's lost interest in Cambodia now.

Looking at his old posts before he left, he made it seem like a short term plan to raise some cash and then was going to settle permanently here with his new wife(?). Just wondering what went wrong with the plan. It interests me because I also sometimes get the same urge to go back and earn some dough and come back cashed up.

it is nice to go and do it and engulf yourself in all the home comforts but the novelty soon wears off,
i think he had some trouble with another poster at some point last year, although i doubt that has anything to do with him not returning i think it was the last time he posted on here so dont really know much about his current situation, GM will most likely know

It;s just a rumor but last i heard he got food poisoning by eating a dodgy home made pie then blew himself up with a big fire cracker, got busted in some kind of import business then just lost interest after KIR passed away. Just a rumor! :dm:

Don't think so. Haven't seen any wikipedia links or cut and pastes, yet.
