Ghislain Morard, on what NOT to do to get a job in Phnom Penh
"On your CV, don't put that your health is 'fresh,' and you probably don't need your weight on there either... Telling me that you are being specific does not make you specific... Telling me that you are a friendly struggle will not help me hire you."

Abigail Gilbert, on branching out from the 7,000 English words you normally use
"When I discovered 'fecund,' I was convinced that I had found a new swear word. There was the f ... and the c, u ..."

Welcome to Nerd Night!

There is a lot I love about Phnom Penh. One of the most significant characteristics is the sense that you can do what ever you want here. Of course this means that you could probably burn down a building or rob a store without little consequence, but these types of unfortunate acts exist everywhere. In a more positive sense you can start things here, and people are. Everywhere you look you can see optimism in development and creative ventures. This optimistic feeling is noticeable almost everyday.

What to Do on Monday Night? Nerd Out, of Course.

What kind of hard-partying hooligans can be counted on to pack a bar on a Monday night? Nerds, apparently.

Nerd Night, a bi-monthly event that has been held at Gasolina and Equinox this past month, drew a crowd of about 70 to hear presentations on an eclectic mix of topics. Speaking at Gasolina in front of a bedsheet tacked up as a projector screen, Western and Cambodian speakers gave talks on their “nerdy” passions. Presentation format was modeled according to the ancient Japanese PowerPoint discipline of “Pecha Kucha” (of course), wherein each speaker has 20 slides and 20 seconds to talk about each one.

HotShots and Mystery Meat

If you’ve been to Naga World in Phnom Penh (or almost any casino in the world), you’re probably familiar with HotShot. It’s a slot machine which gobbles up your coins (or bills), spins some dials and offers you the chance of getting a HotShot (free triple spin) if you line it up correctly. I have to admit, it’s somewhat addictive.

End of the year events in Vientiane

I am quite impressed with what is going on in Vientiane between Christmas and New Year. There is the Tiger Beer Event at Nam Phou Square, which is one of the most professionally organized events I have seen in SE Asia so far. What I like is that the music fits the audience, both foreigners and locals, the bands are really good and know their business (means no feedback), and the sound is awesome (applause to the guy on the mixer, great job). Food is available. Not that much, but enough for a small dinner, and of course beer is there for a fair price (11.000 KIP for a big bottle).

It's beginning to look a lot like.....

It's my first Christmas in Cambodia and, other than seeing colourful, glittery trees in building lobbies, tuktuks festooned with shiny bits of tinsel and shimmery "Marry Christmas" signs on storefronts, I find it hard to believe it's almost that time of year.

But the Phnom Penh Players are hoping you won't forget since this weekend is their Christmas panto - "Robin In Da Hood", a light-hearted romp with the man in tights and his jolly helpers.
