I have lived in both Cambodia and the Philippines and skin whitening products are widely available and used in both, so it's not a Cambodian thing. They advertise things like armpit whitener in the Philippines on TV. I have seen the extreme whitening faces of some young women in Cambodia, so I am well aware of how far some go. Your two posts both bang on about race/ethnicity- we're a language discussion forum and such issues belong elsewhere.
