    Thanks Preako for the videos, most older Khmers know about Preako and Preakeo story and have past down to the younger generations just like the lady is telling her story in the video. My told me this story and moral behind cutting the baboos.

    ok, NOW I just finished watching it, and it’s not a great ending…Preak Ko Preah Kaew, I mean. That sucks. It’s like…foreshadow, isn’t it?? *sigh*

    What a great story! …
    What a great story!!! I just loved the part where she apologized on behalf of all Khmers…LOL I had to pause and finish laughing so I can continue on with the story. I love the way Khmer older folks tell stories… they get so into it. LOL

    so therefore these …
    so therefore these 2 movies was gonna be made no matter what if those land was cambodia or not. this movie had nothing to do with that city anyway. ong bak was about a lao isan speaking guy going after a buddha. and tom yumgoonf or the protector was about a thai guy going after his elephant these 2 movie had nothing to do with those land. therefore anyone could made it beside tony.

    thats good you …
    thats good you understand. so why your so mad about the world knowing him as thai? and thats good they love thier khmer people and language. but the world doesnt care about that. what the world care for is great movie to enjoy thats it. and ong bak happen to be a thai movie so the world know him as a thai warrior. they dont care what his ancestor was and neither do i all i care for is for him to keep doing what he is doing and thats kick .

    Even in his lastest …
    Even in his lastest movies, he’s respresent his “Khmer Pride” by wearing the red scarf. The only reason why he’s a Thai is becuz Thai stole the land from his people. None of the movies would’ve been made if the land was still belong to Cambodia.

  12. kings2099 on September 28th, 2008 10:48 pm

    LMAO! What a …
    LMAO! What a typical Thai person u are. Yes he’s a Thai citizen and it’s a Thai movie so would it make sense to have it as “Khmer Warrior”?I think not. Well take a look at his first movie called “Spirited Killer” the music scene…half to the lyrics is in Khmer. Eventho they live in Thailand, they still love their Khmer language and people.

    what pet store you …
    what pet store you go to? american pet store? I am thai and i never heard of a fish name after thai. thats american people name for it. they even call the grey cat siamese cat. in thai we call those cats seuh meo. So stop blaming thai for naming pets after them. its not them its the american and the world. American call those cat from egypt. Eyptian cats when isareal have those cats to. so what are u complaining about here?

  14. Sookchai on September 28th, 2008 10:48 pm

    tony jaa is a thai …
    tony jaa is a thai citizen doesnt matter what his ancestor use to be. its the rpesent that counts. thats whats wrong with you people like to think about the past. And tony jaa is a thai movie star in a thai movie so the world know him as thai. how hard is that to understand. Ong bak is not a khmer movie its a thai movie so there for people know him as the thai warrior.

  15. kings2099 on September 28th, 2008 10:48 pm

    u don’t need watch …
    u don’t need watch anything about thai to know that they like to name things after them. for example i go the the pet store, i see a fish called “siamese fighting” i go to the market i see “thai basil or thai chilli” i watch sports on t.v. i see “thai kicking”. Tony Jaa is Khmer and what does the world know him as?–Thai… so give me examples of other country doing what the Thais are doing. ;D

  16. Sookchai on September 28th, 2008 10:48 pm

    people always name …
    people always name animals or fruits food after themself who doesnt. chinese janese laos does. thier country their name. why you care if they name it after them. and how do u know anyway unless to watch alot thai stuff to know. pay attention to your own and less of them then there wont be a problem.

    What a sad story, …
    What a sad story, no wonder my grandma does not eat steak. By the way, hum srey does a very good job telling the story.

  18. peacemaker6048 on September 28th, 2008 10:48 pm

    I think your doing …
    I think your doing a nice job of bring to light Khmer culture. It’s refreshing to see someone explore the Khmer perspetive. It’s often left out or belittle.

    The story teller does a great job of telling the story. Dr. Khing is better at writing books.

    thanks.

  19. kings2099 on September 28th, 2008 10:48 pm

    lol sorry for being …
    lol sorry for being so mean to the Thais, not all of them are bad, i have friends that are Thai so it’s all good. im just bitter of the history and the things they like to claim as theirs. 4 example “thai chilli” “thai kickboxing” “thai basil” “siamese fighting fish” does these things not exist in other countries? pls… and i think kickboxing originated in cambodia… ok that’s enough 4rm me Thank You =)

    and it does still …
    and it does still exists…in some countries are more than others. oh i just hate that guy name Hun Sen, he is one greedy son of a u know what. him and his staff of corruption…Sam Rainsy is the way to go…

  21. preahko on September 28th, 2008 10:48 pm

    …and the other …
    …and the other point is, of course, everyone knows it’s ridiculous to say an entire race of people are all greedy. You can’t use the comments on Extreme Khmer as a forum for racism.

  22. preahko on September 28th, 2008 10:48 pm

    Yes, but listen to …
    Yes, but listen to the fortune teller’s version of the story again: that part of the story *exists* to warn Khmers of the consequences of destroying natural resources without thinking of the consequences, yet they still do it today.

  23. kings2099 on September 28th, 2008 10:48 pm

    yes true all human …
    yes true all human beings can be greedy at a way but i can’t really blame those Khmer’s too much for cutting down the bamboo because of their lack of knowlege of the consequences. they’re greedy because it’s for survival but other’s are just greedy for more even if they’re rich…just like the Thais…

  24. preahko on September 28th, 2008 10:48 pm

    Maybe so, but we …
    Maybe so, but we can all fall into it…don’t forget the lesson for Khmers about cutting down the bamboo from this very episode!!

  25. kings2099 on September 28th, 2008 10:48 pm

    Thais = greedy …
    Thais = greedy people
