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

I found one Dollar

Post by Duncan » Fri Jun 15, 2018 11:04 am

True story
Had a few old one dollar notes in my wallet, so I crumpled one up and placed it in the palm of my hand so it could not be seen. I'm standing around watching a older lady dig dirt out of a trench and I point to the pile of dirt behind her and say Mouy Dollar. She's thinking '' stupid barang '' so I stand around a bit longer and when she is not looking I climb into the trench behind her . I plunge my hand into the pile of dirt , brushing up beside her leg so she looks down to see whats going on. All she see's is my hand coming out of the dirt with a fist full of dirt and a dollar note..I shake off the dirt and straighten out the dollar note, studying it
carefully with all surrounding eyes watching I hand it to her and walk away.

She will be talking to her friends for months, of how that eagle eyed barang can smell out a dollar note at ten paces.

Im getting pretty good at performing this magic trick as entertainment for the day but often if its a guy I will put the dollar note in my own pocket. But on a building site it can be quite entertaining if there are a few shy village girls involved.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

next thing you know they will be salting the area with gold dust and saying there's gold here and selling 1 sq meter plots

That could be a good technique for getting your front yard dug up for free.
