let's be honest, how many guys do you think are sending her money not to be a hooker? in thailand it's super common for a bargirl to have 5-6 guys in europe sending her a monthly check so she doesn't work out the bar while her thai BF pockets the money and drives her to the bar where she works so she can get more suger-daddys. this chick is gonna try and squeeze every last dime out of you.

as a great man once said when asked why he got prostitutes "you don't pay them to sleep with you; you pay them to leave"

K2D Be careful on staying around the one place for too long, most expats I know try to break up their time between locations as to give some breathing room for these type of problems your starting to encounter.

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

so she calls me today, she hungry no money for food

i tell her she can come over and pick up $3 if she really wants, she says ok

she gets here and keeps trying to stretch it to $5, i say no


i try to explain to her how she can make $1,000s from me over time if she just slows down and doesnt try to get as much money as she can as quickly as possible

as usual i have no clue if she is understanding or not so i type it up in google translator but she says no no i understand i no want read, i say please i really want you to think of it like this, she wont read it

pretty sure its a lost cause, she cant think about tomorrow let alone 6 months from now, all she knows is that shes supposed to come over and boom boom me later and leave with no money today and thats not fair


ugh, so why did she want to do this damn $200 for a month deal in the first place its ruining everything



last night ate bananas again, then went to get a chocolate shake, it was unquestionably the worst chocolate shake ive ever had, just awful, so even though i already had ordered a waffle i obv had to go get some more ice cream, asked the place how much either a drumstick or these chocolate covered ice cream ball thingys were cuz i was only gonna get whichever was cheaper, obv i just settle on both

waffle not to good either fwiw, it was ok i guess but not gonna get it again

food costs obv would be double if i ate bananas every day


so i usually hide my bananas in super sneaky hiding spot when a girl is coming over, well i thought i might be doing that last night (ended up not, 2 days in a row off thats not easy) but hid the box of bananas anyways

but since i also ate bananas i forgot to go back and get the box, and the thing with my super sneaky hiding spot is if i dont go back and get them that night there is a 50/50 chance they will be gone the next day

and they were gone today

oops, always knew there was a really high chance that this would happen at some point, only about $5 left of them anyways so not to big a deal still sucks though as now i gotta go get some more


editing to add more bad news, my hotel just switched cable companies, no more ASN

Anyway, lots of people get really annoyed by something like this or if people keep ask if you need a tuk-tuk. But these people are just starting out learning how to survive or even thrive in capitalism. If you have a product to sell, your potential customers need to be aware of your product. Economics 101.

Usually just say no in a polite way and they will not bother you too much again. They are just trying to keep the stomach of their babies full. No harm done.

K2d, is your number written on a billboard in the middle of SK somewhere?

Seriously dude, you clearly give your number out too easily. Just cause some dude gave you a Tuk Tuk ride one time, you give him your number?

Do they have caller id on mobiles out there? Maybe K2D called the driver and the driver saved it?

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

ya i had to call him to get him to give me a ride to that guys place, i didnt expect him to save it, ive had 2 other moto drivers give me their numbers to save, one i did (the guy from my first night who dropped me off at the shack and showed me around town the first few days) and the other i didnt save because there was no point

and wabby youre right no harm done, was just a bit surprising and not what i was expecting, tbh he wasnt to fair on his pricing and i wouldnt go back to him anyways, but i almost never take moto-rides, maybe once a month to go to samadura

i dont get to annoyed by the CONSTANT "friend, need a ride friend" or "need ice, china white, ganja" i know they are just trying to make a buck, but i do walk by the same guys every single day and never get a ride you'd think they might get the hint eventually, they dont



shack girl is over, its awkward, really awkward, damn this month deal

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

This is for the OP, as all the rest of the pages are TLDR.

If I heard that proposal 10 years ago when I wasn't married I would seriously consider coming to Cambodia and try living the poker life eventhough I didn't have great poker skillz.

Even thinking about how it would have been like makes me smile

I hope you did good and some people answered the call.

Obv k2d is a nice guy that the locals all see as a mark to be exploited. I hope that he can figure out how to get along in Cambodia or wherever without becoming hard and jaded (or exploited)

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

arghghghargharhgrhgarghghargharghargh (thats me making frustrated grunts, lots of sighs, head shakes, did tha really jus happens mumbled out of mouth as well)


so as mentioned the last $5 or so of my bananas i forgot to get from hiding spot so they were gone, so i needed more

i call the same motodriver from my first night here, ive seen him around and said to let him know when i needed more, im gonna get from him again since it worked the first time, so he meets me at the gym

even though it worked the first time, being that i am a paranoid fooker all around and even moreso when it comes to this i decide i dont wanna have it in my bag in the gym the whole time since this time if he wanted to he could set me up

so i go into the bathroom next to the gym, look for hiding place, all thats there is the trash can, i check and its empty so why not hide it in there, i wrap up in some paper towels and put it in, then decide just incase they come to change it ill hide on the outside between trash can and wall, totally out of view

all im doing in gym today is cardio, i need them to not change the friggin empty trash in the next 25 minutes

i dont run that good

i see the lady go in (cardio equipment has big glass wall that looks out into pool area and can see these bathrooms) with a trash bag, sigh, but its empty maybe she wont.... nope here she comes out with the bag

but doesnt look like anythings up, then she goes back in with the bag, but this time she comes out with my lil ball of paper towels with the bananas inside


hope is not lost, even though workouts got 10 minutes left i decide i need to stalk her and the bag and look for an opening, so i run outside and up the stairs she went up and see her by another trash can, i keep walking trying to not look like i am eyeing her but i think she notices

then she goes into another bathroom, i wait around and she leaves the bathroom with the bag still in there on the floor, wow ive been given a 2nd chance, thank you lord!!!!!

i realize its the womens bathroom, oh well ill just lock the door and when i come out if she is there feign ignorance, i go over to the bag, it is totally filled with wadded up tissue and paper towel balls just like what im looking for

snot rags and maybe worse

i can always wash my hands after so i dig in, have to squeeze them to see if they have anything in the middle, i dig through for like 2 mins and find nothing, start to give up but then go back in again, i feel like i must have checked them all twice, nothing, not in there, i saw her drop it in the bag and it looked to still have the bananas inside, i give up

then i go in, get my bag, see her walking back down by the gym, contemplate offering her $5 for the bag, she sets it down and walks in the maintenance room, i think about stealing it and running off, but then she grabs it and brings it in


sigh, i call motorbike driver up and get another $20

seriously all i needed was them to not empty an already empty trash can in the next 25 mins...... wtf



on a side note though, there is 1 really cute girl that works in housekeeping there, i see her alot since that one wall is glass, so as im stalking that lady with the bag i wanted to try and keep cardio going so i go for powerwalk down a hallway and the cute girl is in some room, i turn around and come back and she comes out, i say hi, she says hi and we keep walking, then i decide why not and ask her name, i ask her where she was from before she doesnt understand, we smile awkwardly, she asks where im from then asks how many members in my family

lots of boring small talk and she cant understand anything im saying really, but i dont think ive ever seen a girl as excited to talk to me in my life, actually im sure i havent, so i ask her if she wants to go for dinner some night and she says sorry dont understand

wondering if should pursue, pretty much impossible to communicate, but she is hot

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

didnt want it on me in the gym incase he was setting me up, and when i left i was gonna walk outside and down street a bit then go back to get


ya im paranoid...... but i feel there are 2 times when i am very vulnerable to some kind of worst case scenario....... when initially getting the bananas, and when in room with a new girl for the first time, so i take extra precautions in those scenarios

i THINK that i have what it takes to kill myself if i get a 10 year sentence in a 3rd world prison, but its not something i really wanna have to put to the test


i'd rather risk the 1% chance that someone finds it and worst case scenario is lose $20 compared to whatever the chance is that the motodriver is setting me up and im gonna lose far far more

i actually think its more likely that i get set up in that spot than it is that they go change the empty trash can and find this thing in that 1 25 minute window........

You do realise that half the people i know smoke everyday and in 9 years of living here i have known one guy get arrested for weed when he was buying 2 kilos out in the street near some moto drivers. You aren't going to jail for weed here dude.

K2D explain
regular bananas. they carry pests that can endanger cambodian wildlife therefore they are on the black market and cost $20 a bunch. if your caught you are absolutely ****ed but if your diet is lacking potasium its a dangerous risk you need to take. be warned though there have been a number of recent deaths in asia from people overdosing on bananas, if your not careful the potasium levels in your body can become poinsoness and serious injury/death can occur.

Re: Living in Cambodia and turning Pro

have you guys ever talked to gym freaks about eating bananas? they will tell you that they are one of the worst possible foods to eat if you are trying to build muscle, ive heard that rant enough times, and also dont want my street cred to be ruined by walking into a gym with a bag of the things

o ya and all the stuff scroosko said as well


went with m3thie tonight for third time, first time she wasnt actually on her namesake, she is so much more fun in regular condition, would potentially be my fav if she was always like this

had getting it up issues on round 2, this was the third time thats happened, the last time was actually on round 4 with shack girl one night but it wasnt to bad, the worst was still my last night in PI, tonights was pretty damn bad to, if she was her normal m3thie'd self i dont even know how she would have reacted, but she was nice and fun tonight and went the extra mile to get me to be able to perform round 2

really weird that all 3 times it has happened have been with arguably the 3 hottest girls ive been with, last night in PI chick was clearly the hottest, shack is #2, and m3thie is probably 3rd........ why doesnt this happen when im with a 6??

guess i need some more breaks and to start going with just 1 time most nights now


shack girl called early in the night, said she was hungy and had no food, i told her ok you can come over to pick up $3 so u can eat if you want, she did, was in much much better mood tonight, her normal self

i gotta think there is a solid chance she actually is broke if she is willing to take a moto ride over here just to pick up $3, i know i know she is just trying to scam me out of every last dollar but if she really is getting hundreds sent to her by 6 different boyfriends in different countries and has any money at all saved up is getting $3 right then really worth it? i dont think so

obv could be wrong


was planning on doing first 3some tomorrow, think im gonna have to put it off for a few nights though since i had the getting it up issues tonight


the "arranged marriage" girl i was talking about last week and the guy i hooked her up with are still going strong a week in, i havent talked to her about it yet but i talk to him almost every day and can tell he couldnt be happier, he has said that if things keep going the way they have he would want to stay with her forever, im 99.8% sure this girl is genuine so wouldnt be surprised if they are still together many many years from now

i THINK it might have been this one other working girl who has started hanging out here a lot, shes mid 30s, not attractive in the least, yet has been with a guy here quite a few nights recently

if it is her, then i actually believe m3thie when she said she didnt take it, as i know this other lady doesnt like m3thie (since m3thie stole "her man" for a night or two)

if not that lady and someone else then m3thie probably did it

i ask m3thie about this tonight, all i ask her was what happened that other night, she basically says exactly what i thought word for word, that it was the other "working" lady who was staying here and was mad at m3thie for stealing her man and wanted to get rid of m3thie

was crazy hearing her talk about it cuz it was basically exactly what i was thinking

$3 is more than the average daily wage for your average Cambodian. Equivalent to about $100 for an American. Do you really think she's that lazy that she wouldn't bother with a 5 minute trip to go see a sucker who's willing to pay her a day's wages for no reason at all? I don't.

After she came to see you, she probably phoned 4 other idiots and went and collected $5 from each of them too.
