oh kampuchea!!

back when we used to live in cambodia, i used to read the local english papers - cambodian daily. 

they have a fair coverage of international affairs but its the local news that always catches my eyes. sometimes it makes me a little frustrated how things are done but more very frequently it has been the source of many giggles in our household. my all-time favorite is the one about the smashing new office towers not passing safety rules because the local fireman trucks have capabilities to fight fire up to 12 levels tall, leaving the the 28 levels a little less well taken care of. then it lead to the question of how the other locally erected buildings taller than 12 levels passed their safety checks? hmmm...

another one that tickled my fancy recently! click here to zoom in.
