This is a free speech zone where you can discuss and debate everything Cambodia related whether you're a dyed in the wool leftist, a liberal or somewhere to right of Attila the Hun. This is also where you get to read the news the local media suppresses.
It's not weird at all when it's in an environment where freelancers are brought back by drunken punters. And you can't have one rule for rough-looking skanks and a separate one for classy madams - has to be same for all.
(I'm not casting nasturtiums at the OP's lady - I mean other punters do do dat)
I also think it's perfectly okay to ask for ID, especially in such an area. Had the OP brought back a hooker to that other place he relocated to, and had this hooker robbed him, he'd be all over the Internet bashing them for their lack of security now.
I dont blame hotels for asking for ID,they are responsible not the punter.
But back to the OP and his comments on the helicopter crash.
He may not be interested but bloody hell we are.
What about our right to know?
Never been to Pickled Parrot. However:
1. Seems like many people have complaints about Srey Bich. These might have some grounds.
2. I 100% support the demand to see ID, any owner who does not enforce it is asking for trouble.
3. # 2 above can be enforced in a polite way, with rudeness/force as a last resort, not a primary resort. Power corrupts.
4. Make sure all guests know the rules on booking in, and sign an agreement/disclaimer.
People who steal from banks get jail. Banks who steal from people get bonuses. You gotta love capitalism!
She not butterfly. She helicopter.
They didn't call in a security guard "for no reason". They called in a security guard because you and your girlfriend wouldn't show her ID, you admit that you got angry at the request, and then you and your girlfriend tried to blow past the fat girl and access the rooms anyway.
If you agree that the hotel has every right to ask for ID from the guests, surely you must agree that the hotel should e able to enforce the rule as well.
Correct me if I am wrong, but aren't hotels legally obliged to register the ID cards or passports of anyone who stays overnight?
Dictated to a slave and sent by carrier pigeon.
Hmm, intrigue factor 10. Noddy, we'd love to hear more - please.
I even went into the PP for the first time tonight. It wasn't quite what I was expecting on that street, twas a bit more upmarket than I anticipated. I think I figured out the staffer in question though.
I just re read the original post and i have to wonder why this allegedly high class lady even ventures into st 104 let alone eats and sleeps at the pickled parrrot.
Surely a lady like this would prefer a classier restaurant and better accomodation-what is the OP thinking?
Do neither of them have any class?
Exactly. I can not believe how the world's most cynical forum just buys this story.
Who buys it? He hasn't had one positive reply yet with his classy lady palaver. She's probably a transexual crack-ho or something.
Been to the Pickled Parrot a few times. Never noticed super-friendly staff but that's normal in PP isn't it? I've been to many places (Khmer and Western) in town and can count super-friendly (non-prostitute) staff on one hand. The OPs experience of Khmer waiting staff is....normal.
