Let me assure you, it is not!
The last few month, here in Cambodia we observed a lock-down like the rest of the world. Well, maybe not quite like the rest of the world. Because people can still go out and do their shopping, wearing masks of course and following social distancing rules. But all schools are closed and public transport stopped. Bars are mostly closed or restricted to serve only a limited number of guests. Therefore I was able to go to a small restaurant for my daily breakfast.
And everyday I passed by this construction site and watched the building grow. (Apparently the builders didn't have any corona safety rules)
But yesterday morning was different. They weren't building as usual. There was a crane and a truck and lots of debris all around. It looked like a bomb had gone off. However, people were very relaxed and didn't look worried at all. I asked around to find out what's going on and was told, 'They remove one floor.'.
That information was not helpful at all and only confused me more. Questions like 'How did this happen?' and 'Why?' need to be answered.
My personal theory is, the architects stayed home and the workers just carried on as always, building floor after floor after floor and because nobody stopped them, they build too many.
