Khmer Saying : សុភាសិតខែ្មរ: កុំពុតស្រឡៅ កុំប្រដៅស្រីខូច

This is the Khmer Saying to share all Cambodian and others  with a brief explanation. You will find out all the words are useful and meaningful.

2. អប់រំ និងចំណេះដឹង (Education and Knowledge)

Khmer word :កុំពុតស្រឡៅ កុំប្រដៅស្រីខូច

Khmer spelling : (kom put' srorlao kom prordao srey khoch)

English by Khmer: (don't bend srolao, don't educate woman vile)

English Description: Don't bend srorlao wood, don't educate a prostitute. It is not in Cambodia that 'sayings' sometimes carry prejudices. This one thus; at the same time self-righteous and patronizing, sound especially cynical when considering that visiting a prostitute belongs to the most admitted masculine habits.
