Before I started watching Star Trek Deep Space Nine over Netflix, the Ferengi must have been one of the ugliest, most snobbish and profit-minded alien race in the Star Trek universe. But then watching Quark in Star Trek Deep Space Nine gave another interesting perspective on the Ferengis. Image source: Star Trek.com
They say the show must go on and so it is when it comes to work – this time is the work overseas assignment in Cambodia which is also known as the Kingdom of Wonders. This would be probably my 10th trip to the country. Image of The Royal Palace in Cambodia, Phnom Penh, source: All Free Photos

I still recall stand-up comedian Kumar’s joke – when he walked into a high-class boutique, the salesgirl looked at him from head to toe with a puzzled face that asked: “do you have money to buy things?”
He, of course, got annoyed with the treatment that he got from the salesgirl that he proceeded to buy something very expensive and paid for it with coins.

Just the other day, I watched the movie “Invictus” and noticed that Nelson Mandela (excellently acted by Morgan Freeman) was a very polite man. He was courteous and well mannered even to his “ex-enemies”.
