Overheard

Tomorrow will be the 31st of the month and the next day we will be into the second month of the year. How time flies. And you know what, while I was queuing at the Post Office for postage stamps, I overheard two lady barangs (foreigners) standing at the claims counter for international parcels and talking about Valentine’s and celebrating it here in Cambodia.

There was a discernible excitement in their voices and, from what I’ve heard, one is expecting a set of lingerie bodystockings she bought online. She, the owner, was very animated with a hint of naughtiness in describing the items she chose for herself. They were both giggling like teenagers. I smiled at what I heard; they probably mistook everyone at the Post Office as locals so they weren’t so privy about their thoughts. Hahaha. I know it is not ethical to  eavesdrop on someone else’s conversation but I couldn’t help it. The two were talking, in English, in a room full of people who they thought were non-English speakers. Be careful, ladies.
