Cut and paste from the Speakeasy formum -
After putting it off till my visa has almost expired I finally got some passport photos from a shop on St 110 called Heng Heng Photo Shop. I had never been there before so I asked the girl how much for passport photos, she said 5000R. The photos were ready in 10 mins and included a small CD with the images. I thanked her for her honesty and asked her if she had a business card as I wanted to give them a free plug. Much better than the slime bag at Psar Kandal.

Those who begin coercive elimination of dissent soon find themselves exterminating dissenters. Compulsory unification of opinion achieves only the unanimity of the graveyard.

Hello! Maybe the Mods can help me out. Thoughts?
I still feel like some kind of foreign person when buying my goods.
I will shove a few things on here and, if you like you can trump me with better options or simply make fun of my lack of knowledge after 4 1/2 chnams here.
I also have my second child coming, the first attempt cost me dagnabbit, oh! how he cost me.
I am only putting stuff that I can direct you to and am not looking to sell anyone anything, so reciprocal behavior would be amenable.
If we get this going, then maybe a small voting system would help us all out, so if you see a post for some wondrous deal maybe tag it or dogshit . After years of"OH! for F*!*KS sake, Kynom Squal Tlay Pun Mahn" or the ubiquitously uttered, fuck off! I would like to think we can put our knowledge out there for each others benefit.
I'm in Boeung Tumpun so most of this stuff is local to me here.
