Hi Everyone, We need help

Unread postby look@me » 16 March 2021, 10:03

Hi All, My name is Adam, My partners name is Phearon, I am from the Uk and he is from Cambodia. We have been together for about a year and everything is great :)

I am not sure if you allow the type of post is wish to make but we are trying to raise some money to save our business, we have a internet page to raise some funds and we are wondering if we could post the link here in your forum (I wont post it now as I will wait for someone to say yes first).

It would be fantastic if you could help us during this time, however we also understand if your forum does not allow these types of posts.

Many thanks for listening and we will stay members of your board either way.

Adam and Phearon.

What’s the business? What’s the nature of the difficulty the business is facing? What has been revenue over the last 5 years? Gross and net profits?

You can’t just come in off of the street and say “please give me money for my business”

Think of us as like going on Dragons Den. I’ll be playing the role of Deborah Meaden.

You wouldn’t dare ignore IRL Deborah Meaden like that, she’d devour you like a post-coital mantis. :shifty:

That says more about her than me.... And I would, she and the rest are vultures, circling above looking for the meat and only leaving the work.

Anyways, see you on the forum, we been looking for help for a week or so, but have meet many new people at the same time.

Thanks for the welcome.

Why won’t you offer any information about this business? Is it a clandestine outfit of some sort? Even from a conversational basis, what does the business do?

I did not want to say anything until I found out if I could, we are a Gay Bar in Siem Reap Cambodia, we had a power surge and our amplifier, speakers and computer blew, our business makes most of its money for the year during the tourist season but with covid that's hard.

Have you presented any of these items for repair? Surely there’s an electronics repair place in the city? Unless your equipment was built prior to the early 90s, it must have some degree of surge protection built in. It’s surely just fuses?

Yes we got our equipment guy in and the damage was bad, The amplifier basically melted on the inside, the speakers blew out and no sound, the computer motherboard sound card and processor no longer work and the monitor is only green screen.

The power grid in cambodia us not the best, and since the disaster we have had to also get a surge protector for the whole bar.

Someone has helped us and lent us some equipment untill we get back on our feet, but is not ideal at all.

I can give you lots of money! Do you accept Monopoly money? I've so much in that currency!

I'm sorry for your predicament! I wish I could help, but my currency isn't too hot right now.
