I got BAD feeling after reading all those stupid comments

I had just visited, read the story, and read those comments in Darlinglife blog. I felt really really bad about those who said Cambodia is THUG! Another one is KEWLI who posted a comment in my blog, saying my country is so currupted. Really, where there is no corruption? I believe, every country is the same about this problem. It is just more or less.

I am terribly sorry to hear about Liling's problem that she had posted in her blog. According to the story in her blog, her husband's family use power to do what they wish for, kidnap their own son, banned him not to meet her again, taken away his passport, and never allowed to be connected with her, without any authority by law. She believes they could do such a thing because a member of his family is one important officer in military affair, also they are rich which could easily bribe the officer in order to do what they want.

Comments were given support to her and bad view of Cambodia were also given. They are right to say her husband's family is Thug but NOT Cambodian. It's just one small part that they can see but they made judgment as a whole. I completely disagree with what they are thinking and saying about Cambodia. Not because I am Cambodian (though it might play a part) but I know they had made it wrong.

She was told not to go to Cambodia by the embassador and her husband. It's not safe to be in Cambodia alone as she's a girl. I ask you, is it safe for a girl to be anywhere else beside Cambodia when she doesn't know the language and the location or...? Is it safe to be where you are not welcome? Is it safe to be where there is someone who against you and who had tried so hard to suffer you? Her husband told her not to come might be because he knows his family would do something bad to her but not that Cambodian would do something to her.

Ok, ok, ok,... There are many things to say but what I really mean is that Liling's problem is only about one family in Cambodia so you guys shouldn't judge Cambodian through only one thing that you can see. I, actually, accept that our country might not be as good as yours yet as you know, we had just started from below zero.

Hum... I am not good at convincing people to believe what is fact about my country but I really want people to know that we are not THUG.

Truly love cambodia,

  2. The link has been posted in many Cambodian blogs. They're seemly trying to defame Cambodia.
    Phörs, you're right - nowhere in the World, no corruption - so we should not find it a strange thing.
    Hopefully, the next Khmer generation would help fight against those negativeness, bringing back Cambodia's better face to the World.

  3. Hi Phors,

    I'm glad you write about this.
    First, she has been miss-advised badly about her husband situation and about Cambodia. There are many Singaporeans, tourists and business people, in Cambodia, as are many Thais, Americans, Brits, etc. and they are safe and sound in Cambodia.

    Second, I'm very suspicious about her husband's situation. Since he has a Singaporean wife, if he really wants to go back to Singapore, he can always get another passport. With his wife and their certificate of marriage, he can definitely get another Cambodian passport, Singaporean passport, or even become a Singaporean citizen.

    Instead, they ask for others to help. But what can anybody do if her and her husband don't want to do it themselves, but only cry about it. It's an internal family affair. There is nothing for any government, even corrupt one, to benefit from it anyway. If she and her husband take the husband's family to a Cambodian court. They will 100% win the case. As soon as the judge sees the Singaporean Marriage certificate and her citizenship. No body can do anything to them. The family has to give back the passport or if the court can't prove that the family took the passport, he is entitled to making a new passport due to lost.

    This girl has been ill-advised and I can't believe that the Singaporean Embassy advised her that. I'm very shock that she (and the Singaporean Embassy) has that perception of Cambodia even after she has been to Cambodia already.
