I just wanted to remind everyone that Cambod is taking contributions via Paypal, Andyinasia is taking contributions via bank transfer with ACLEDA and CAMPU, and jm is taking cash contributions at Garage on Street 110. I am taking ANZ contributions for anyone in Cambodia that would prefer to do it that way.

We are meeting Mint to deliver the money this weekend before she heads to Thailand. Her situation sounds pretty grim and I am sure Henning would be happy that we are helping her. We've done a great job so far but I am hoping we can come up with a lot more. Please PM me if you'd like to make other arrangements to donate.

Owing to the flooding around Poipet, Mint has decided to postpone her departure by a couple of weeks.

?

Perhaps she is generally having second thoughts about moving back to Thailand? At least money provided will enable her to make different choices in life, even though she is in need of it for all sorts of reasons, it still provides a small opportunity to choose.

yes, like i said, roads are fine as there has been no rain this week up there.

Since she is thai I would think she would feel more at home with her relatives rather than a bunch of Barangs, even though they are kind hearted
same about bank account. if she has id card or passport, it takes about 5 minutes to open a bank account in Thailand.

I dont know her and this is no way bad about her, but giving a thai a bunch of a cash is something i would not do. To easy to spend an when the relatives knows she has $$ they will all have their hands out.

We'll see her again on Saturday and have a good chat. To be fair, the PPP yesterday reported on serious flooding in Poipet putting the residents of the local prison in severe jeopardy.

Why would she leave if white people in Phnom Penh keep giving her money?

Well Mint was good enough for SunSan/Henning to spend money on so Mint is good enough for me to spend money on. What she chooses to do with the money is entirely up to her. I actually don't even give a flying Fck if she gambles it all away. However, I do agree re. the family and I think that has already been implied, and that Mint isn't too keen for them to get their hands on that money either.

I had Known Henning since 2007, I regarded him as a friend, he never had a bad word to say about anyone, he was honest and friendly, I shall miss him and Cambodia has lost a friend.

During 2007 and 2008 I drank with Henning many, many times in Siem Reap and Phnom Penh.

When he moved to PP, I would travel from SR and meet up with him, he took me in bars I had not discovered myself, he took me in the Broken Brick, Smile Bar, Zapatas and Sophie's Bar to name a few.
We went in the Broken Brick a few times back then.

I last saw Henning about 10 weeks ago, we shared a bus (Royal Ibis) from PP to SR, he looked ill and I knew he was feeling crap, I presumed he would get better, I had called him over the last week or so, I thought he was in Vietnam as the phone was off.

Toady I stumble on this thread and find he has gone.

RIP Henning, you were a good guy.
