Dara and his many girlfriends

Dara and his many girlfriends

130213 10a

At 24, Dara (not his real name) is a handsome man. He is tall and fit, his skin is soy-white and his hair shiny black.

He’s also fashionable, and always wear the latest clothes.

Speaking slowly but surely, Dara talks about his first love. She was his sweetheart when he was a high-school student.

Blessed with a lovely voice that could melt an ice cap, Dara was sure he could steal her heart and convince her to make love with him.

He eventually succeeded, but soon afterwards they broke up.

He is a handsome man and many girls fall in love with him. “Do I have to count my official and unofficial girlfriends?” he asks.

He also reveals that he has made love with many of them.

Immediately, his best friend, who is sitting nearby, says: “Although the girl is in Kompong Suom, he can call her to go to a motel in Phnom Penh.”

It makes the phrase “Man has weak eyes, woman has weak ears” seem obvious.

So be wary of a man’s voice.
