 Oh, What $1 Million Could Buy!

 By Moeun Chhean Nariddh

 

Oh, my dream! If I just got $1 million or $2 million from the $615 million worth of donor aid:

· I would kill my poverty!

· I would burn down my straw hut and bill a villa!

· I would throw away my oxcart and buy a Land Cruiser!

· I would give away my cows and hire bodyguards!

· I would stop drinking palm wine and drink Hennessy!

· I would stop smoking local tobacco rolled in tree leaves

and try some cigars!

· I would plead with my wife and get one or two beautiful

mistresses!

· I would ask my son to stop tending cows and go study in

Singapore or even the US!

· I would stop playing cards under the tree and go to an air-

conditioned casino!

· I would go on holiday to Pattaya or Hong Kong!

But sorry, it’s just my dream.
