Met a guy who was loaded called Monysak.
Another guy who was loaded called Loy Te - which is sort of funny in khmer as means no money.
Told a prick used to work with that the correct pronunciation of another guy we worked with called Sucheat was Suckshit.

And then there are English word- names bestowed on kids like Elite, Winner, Diamond....

Some names look funny in English but Khmer pronounce it different from English.

If you were to make a list of all the fucked up, retarded, inept, stupid shit you shouldn't do on the roads, that would actually turn out to be the Cambodian handbook on how to drive.
