Falangs are an easy touch



Re: Immigration deports 26 Cambodian beggars (PM Friday, 01 April 2016) – Been coming here for 10 years and they’ve always been part of the furniture. It’s always a bit hard to pass by those tiny kids without giving something, but we all know that falangs are an easy, sentimental touch, when they see them on the sidewalk, even though it’s a probability that they are the bait put out by unscrupulous heavies. They’ll be back soon enough.
