I Lost a $1 Bet with a Girl at Tokyo Barbershop

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.

The girl on the far right is the Rubik Cube Queen.

The one on the far left is the one that tried to pierce my eardrum.

Ha! I was right going against type and I knew you'd put her out in front, too. Anyway, nice selection at the shop. Thanks for the tip. :beer3:

Haha 8)

Now concerning the ears picking I was dead serious.
It takes years and lot of fear sometimes suffering to get to appreciate it, so IMHO it can be used as an integration level criteria. Not that becoming khmer is to be regarded as a life time achievement though :pardon:

I don't think I'd do it again. It was scary as hell, and seems risky, no matter how cute she was.

I cringe thinking about it. Probably scarred for life now.

In Malaysia I got my "ears cleaned" by someone putting a hollow candle in my ear and proceeding to light it on fire.

Some mumbo jumbo if you ask me. Doesn't seem like it would actually do anything.

Somehow having a lit candle in my ear wasn't half as terrifying as having someone go prodding in my ear with long metal tools, tweezers.

The whole thing should have been done in hospital, knocked out with anesthesia and a layer a morphine drip.

At a Khmer wedding right now. Kinda wished I had gotten them to put more wax IN.

Getting beheaded would be less disturbing than ear cleaning.
