Kynom sra lan Kampuchea!
Since living in Cambodia from 2012, I have experienced a lot of weird scenes. Lots of Khmer ‘counter-intuitive’ ways of doing things and the Ex-Pat communitys’ reactions to those. A lot of foreigners get frustrated and really angry at these initially. If they don’t figure out how to cope with it, they end up becoming cranky, miserable, insufferable pricks. Sadly, there are a number of them around.
Cambodians love to laugh and they react enthusiastically to a big smile or a cheeky grin. Despite whatever trials and tribulations that can be experienced on a day-to-day basis, I always keep a smile or two in reserve for those times that things grind.
But even better than that, during my daily routine, I usually see at least one thing that cracks me up, just has me laughing out loud. It’s these ‘moments’ that make up for any of the challenges that living here may present. Cambodian moments.
This site is dedicated to documenting these funny scenarios, the stunning countryside, the wonderful Khmer people, their super-rich culture and history.
