An answer to Alexandra about the citizenship
« Reply #30 on: September 03, 2022, 07:21:10 PM »
 Continuing with "I'm already losing hope but here comes my last try: how about to open a restaurant?" topic. The recent month I was busy and I am still busy with these COVID 0 problems in China.
 Now, seems like, I'm ready to continue my answers to those expats in Cambodia.
 So, Alexandra (on Wed Jun 01, 2022 4:34 pm) said that I keep mentioning that I want to leave China because I couldn’t obtain Chinese citizenship and she is certain that

You won’t become a Cambodian citizen either.
Alexandra, good to know. But it's not so important.The important is to be able at least to make some normal living and to start enjoying the life because it's not endless.
 I wanted to become a Chinese citizen but after this 0 COVID insanity and more and more monarchization I don't dream of it anymore .

An answer to Lucky Lucan about the English language and the business success
« Reply #31 on: September 04, 2022, 01:28:59 AM »
 You know, there are those people who are comment not really to help you but to show how clever they are and/or to discourage you, to insult you. Something like this is the answer of a user named "Lucky Lucan". He/she said (on  Wed Jun 01, 2022 4:42 pm):

I don't think even Beltei would hire this guy, his English usage is all over the place. And just because there are locals here with barely any education who have made a fortune selling noodle soup doesn't mean just any foreigner can. They know the lay of the land, how to bargain, communicate with and treat staff and customers. They have plenty of other advantages a foreigner, especially a newly-arrived one, does not.
My answer:
 1. During my teaching career I passed many interviews successfully. Teaching English is not only about using English; it's about the ability to speak it right (standardly), to have some skills like patience, funny tricks, abilities to sing, play some musical instrument, draw, advanced linguistics knowledge and (when it's about teaching younger students) -- sporty body which helps you during all those 5-9 classes to be able to jump, run, make the kids happy with flying in arms; even adding some push-ups, squats and so on, keeping the students active, not bored and in good mood (and shape).
 People like you, who usually criticize the English level of the non-natives, often can't teach English well, can't pronounce it right (for example, using your own local English dialect, not the standard English language) and even can't spell words correctly.
 Also, it's funny, how people who never taught English think that it's something very complicated. For example, here is one 3rd grade English text "I see my friends. Their names are Bill and Pam. They are waking the groundhog." This level is not difficult for teaching; even some beginner (new teacher) will find it easy. So, don't underestimate me and my teaching. I'm one of the best teachers and most of the students like me.
 2. Of course a local person may have a better start with the food business. But it doesn't make every foreigner unable to make own food business. If it's true (that it's very difficult for the foreigners to open own restaurants abroad) there shouldn't so many foreign restaurants abroad (Chinese, Japanese, Mexican, Turkish, Korean, Hungarian, Vietnamese and so on). Not every local person goes only to local restaurants and not every local person likes to buy only the local food.
 So, in short: one-sided thinker who can't see the complexity of things like teaching English and making food business.

An answer to FishHead Phil

 A person nicknamed FishHead Phil said that in a year's time he look forward to me explaining

in six languages how Cambodia wasn't ready for his brilliance.
My answer: The good thing is that you remember at least one of my qualities (that I am a polyglot). But why is this pessimistic prediction? Because you think that Cambodia is not a good country (in this case what are you doing there?!) or because you just think that I am too picky?... Or maybe you jealous because compared with most of the people (probably you're one of them)I am really "more brilliant" with my several positive qualities?
 This kind of answers are not helping; they're not useful even for you because they're showing you're not a supportive person but a part of the problem to those who seek for help.

An answer to busybee

We need a Texas style BBQ IMHO. Get yourself a mechanical bull, serve juicy 300 g burgers, American style fish and chips. Add some of the atmosphere of a Beer Festival. And those uniforms they got in 'Munich Fresh Beer' (Aeon)
(and added some photographs).
 My answer: This is how a normal person should answer when you're asking something: ontopic, sharing own experience and opinion, backing them up with some materials (like the photographs in this case).
 Thank you for your opinion! I suppose this idea is good! Of course, if there are enough rich costumers, I think, because, I guess the meat isn't one of the cheapest products (about the fish, I am wondering too).
 Usually this type of restaurants are successful in certain areas.

An answer to RobW

RobW answered this (I think it's a kind of black humor):

^ And shooting. There should be shooting for authenticity - perhaps at the feral children outside.

I hope it was a humorous (black humorous) idea. I know there are some problematic children there (a man wrote about it in http://johnnyvagabond.com/destinations/dinner-cambodian-street-mafia/) but "shooting" is too cruel and too illegal.
 If you're talking about fake guns (toy guns), the idea is okay, as far as many people do associate Texas with cowboys, guns, Wild West, Westerns (movies).
 Probably it's a great idea (a Tex-Mex restaurant) but I doubt I'll be able to invest so much. It needs a serious investment so I rather stick to something simpler.
