Designer Tesco Brand Underwear in a Cambodian Market
– After Sihanoukville, I returned to Phnom Penh with Gabby and Chad where we stayed at The Lazy Gecko this time although I did pop back to Mad Monkey to grab my visa for Vietnam. It was a shame because the hot Khmer girl who worked there actually got a little stressed out at me because I was being forward and asking her questions direct.
We shared a triple bedroom at the lazy gecko and for these few days we just chilled out and got drunk. On the last night myself and Chad accidentally went and sat in the gay pick up area of the park and got talking to an old 64 year old guy who was telling us all sorts of information that would make Gary Glitter look noble.
Not phased by any of this we went to the Phnom Penh Casino where I instantly lost Chad and went on a wonder around the building looking for the Texas Hold’em tables. Apparently Cambodians only like Baccarat, as there was over 100 tables of this and one table of normal Texas Hold’em which had a $200 dollar buy in which I kindly rejected.
Very drunk I set up shop in front of the 1-cent slots and proceeded to win the second tier jackpot of $200, which was quite a surprise. I won this at around 4.30 and cashed out straight after so went home about $150 up. This would come in real handy for my travels to Vietnam.
The next morning I got a transfer pickup from outside our hostel to the coach station where I boarded the coach from Phnom Penh to Ho Chi Minh City. This was really easy and although an 8-hour bus ride it was pretty bearable compared to some that I have been on.
