I love this irony so much. I don’t know if it was deliberate or a joke. Observe.
A picture tells a thousand words, but you need to know where to look. In the foreground is the Buddhist Institute, but in the background is the largest casino in Cambodia (so i’m told).
It reminds me of the Simpsons Movie i was watching on the plane after a stopover in Singapore (see? it all links meaningfully). In one part of the movie, there is a sorta Armageddon scene where Springfield is under attack (what’s new?). Then you see a crowd running from the Pub to the Church, and another crowd running from the Church to the Pub. I wonder if this has a somewhat similar philosophy behind it?
Talk about town planning. It’s like something out of the Sims.
