Tasty Dog in the Kingdom: This Cambodian Life #72. Delilah Marie has a strange new malady and so goes to the doctor. However, no fancy expat clinic provides the diagnosis, but a regular Cambodian doctor on Street 110 for just $10. At that price, you don’t even need to fool with insurance! She then launches into the topic of acid throwing, a sad but too prevalent form of retribution and revenge for jilted lovers and jealous wives. Just be careful who you entangle yourself with when visiting the kingdom.
Sin Sisamuth serenades you with Rainy Nights – since that seems to be the common weather pattern lately…

Tasty Dog in the Kingdom: This Cambodian Life #16. Delilah Marie gets her paranoid old lady on to chronicle some common ailments that you can pick up here, which sound both exotic and not-so-enticing, dispenses advice about where to go if something serious happens (Bangkok, of course), and then has a whinge as she lists the maladies she’s picked up in the past month. The episode concludes with some evil, barking dogs – but you actually have to listen to the episode to find out why these are included.
The opening song is about a victim of the heart – giving Pat Benatar a run for her money – and then the dogs, dogs, dogs at the end. I hope I mixed it well or you will be deafened by the vicious beasts.
