the guy is a fool, some might not have a lot of cash but if you don't have the price of your fare home, your not a lot of good to anyone. on to living the dream, if your single and only your own nuts to support, then its possible. you can bar it all the way and bang it home till your hearts content.

some problems with marrying into a different age group with a wife some yrs younger, ok at the start with you stuffing horn pills or the likes, everyday to keep the show going, after a while she might want to mix with her own age group to have some fun, that is when a lot of farangs are left to their own devices, hence the drink enters. its an awful thought anyway but a true one, if you didn't have any money when you both met, she wouldn't entertain you, as most are looking to better their lives, so lets not kid ourselves, like the guy sitting alone begging.

live the dream wherever you are, thats right, but the dream becomes part of every day life, and after a while you become used to living like that, so use to it, thats its not a dream any more, so it comes to an end and you wake up.

then theres your marriage visa/ext to think of, if thats the way you chose to go, you need your wife even more, lets hope she don't get a touch of menapause, you could be on your knees.

if you have a good one guys, look after her.

You mention a good wife, a while back my wife had a disagreement with her father, she came home crying saying, my father he doesn't love me, to console her i said, never mind tilac i love you, i love you too, was the answer i got back, since when, i said, she replied, when i see you take care my children. so love comes in different ways.

we then got talking about things, i said, you will miss me when i die. oh why did i say that, the flood gates opened up once more. then she told me about her adventure in looking for a farang after her husband left her with the children for another lady, she had nothing and appreciates what she has now. her favourite saying, i no forget. that was before we met over 16 years ago. she wanted to better her life along with her childrens, i admire someone that goes to great lengths to better themselves, without hurting anyone, so their children are taken care of, a better life.

do take care if you have a good one

hi M.T.Sac is that meant as emptysack rolf rolf. forgive me if it is not, just my sense of humour.

i have always thought that a girl that charges for sex is one better than a girl who gives it away to anyone, not that i like paying anyway, but have more respect for them. oddly enough we tend to be physical with the people that we know the least. another story that.

i agree do take care if you have a good one, look after her.

Do you guys talk about sex more times than you indulge in it, seeing as you bought the subject up.

Do you mean a hooker versus a slapper

A hooker is her profession its her work she does it for money, a slapper is doing it because she likes it. the local bike that most have ridden. hooker, slapper, both words are considered pretty impolite, then theres the word harlot, which goes back as far as the 15th century all are  promiscuous woman, along with strumpet, whore, there must be so many words relating to it. the sex saint, is completely undiscriminative in the choice of sexual partners, hence being appreciated by everyone she knows.

all them naughty words are used to judge a women's value solely based on her sexual availability. they are all insults to the person on the receiving end, all based on what a woman’s role is, or was many years ago, when a woman’s life was solely based on serving to a man, with no rights to luxuries for herself or happiness and enjoyment, no freedom of choice. Welcome to 2018.

Ok saci all is sweet with you and your forgiven, back on the crissy card list.

the media is on about noise pollution, surveys have shown that its one of the biggest problems in Thailand i doubt whether it will go beyond there, if anything is done about it, that will be in the city only, we still have square wheels out here. OK the biggest offenders which annoy me are.

Noisy motorcycs, Soi dogs, Earth lorries, The vendors that go round with speakers on top of there truck what you cant quite make out what there saying. you dare not give them a glance, you'll never get rid of them. The base of music from thats at least 3 kilometres away.

But if we farangs moan about it, you would hear the same old chorus, from your brotherly expats, This is Thailand, if you dont like it, go home. now seeing as the thais have voiced their opinion, can we do the same ;)

This is Thailand, if you dont like it, go home

I hate it when people say that  " if you dont like it, go home "  just not possible for some to go home, a lot don’t have two barts to rub together, maybe some can’t even afford the flight. they might not have anything to go home to, just some of the nastiness in the farang community,  i hate that talk as if they made the grade and the others fell behind, some are looked down upon back home as losers, here they are ok because thais don't realy understand them. so no matter how much they complain about Thailand, they get more respect here than back home. some never made it back home and they never made it here either, so wheres the ideal place to moan, on a forum maybe. if you love it here and are happy, stay away from these losers. they spend half their time here moaning about the country they chose to come to.

this is interesting, i found on bbc.com

Thai people don't like to say no. This is evident even in their simplest words: “yes” is chai and the closest thing to “no” is mai chai, which translates as "not yes.” This is more than just a simple language quirk. It reflects much about Thai society that isn’t apparent to outsiders until they’ve spent some time in the country.

Thailand is famously known as the Land of Smiles, and its residents pride themselves on being gracious and accommodating. As a collective culture, Thai people are taught to be more concerned with what’s best for the group rather than what suits them personally. Perhaps this is why “no” is always tempered with a “yes”. “Not yes” seems to imply in one small phrase their regret at not being able to consent to what you’ve asked. In fact, when mai chai is proffered, it’s often with downcast eyes and a small bow called a wai or a hand waved in front of the face apologetically.

According to Rachawit Photiyarach, intercultural communications professor at Bangkok's Kasetsart University, “Thais avoid confrontation because they live in a group-orientated culture. Showing emotion is considered immature or rude, so many people value those who can handle situations calmly.”

He added, “Thai society is highly conservative and traditional. It’s a culture where showing gratification and emotion is controlled by strict social norms. This is why showing public affection between couples is considered rude here.”

Good post, Nan.  The mai chai is a very interesting insight.

a girl who can't say no  ;)  Mai chai could be confusing with some coversations, some thought given to that, do you want to hear a story.

A thai lady who lives nearby, got hitched up with a farang canadian, he stays 3 months at a time, goes home comes back and so on. his wifey speaks to mine, so she invites us round for a chat as he has no friends and i can see why. they have 3 thai children not his, so i take a big bag of goodies for them, chrisps, sweets. yogurts. as we get sat down and done the hello's. wifey hands over the bag of sweets to the kids, which he snatches away, checks in the bag, pulls out the yogurts and said, they can have them but the other rubbish i don't allow them to eat. the kids are moaning in thai. i said all kids eat sweets, not here they don't, he said. his wife saying sorry to mine, very embarrassed. i said do you think they don't eat sweets when your not around, he pointed at the gate. so we left. since the phone calls from wifes friend i'm informed he doesn't allow her to eat som tam.

you can't beat a bit of cod rolf rolf

hi serbs, that must of been an awful embarrassment, so he's thinking of the kids health, wonder what they think of him, a canadian you say, the nation said there are 1.6 million foreigners living in Thailand between January and August. Canadians were the biggest group – 9,872 migrants
lets hope there not all like him. some do forget their manners at times. Mai chai !

thank you for the reply nan, yes i noticed in the (xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx) column, no thanks nothing, maybe they are rude. but tamun tun rounded it off nicely. well done that man. now i have been reading the forums, new laws. people are a bit panic mode about the income letter and the crackdown on visa or ext.  if you have the funds you will get the paperwork to go with it. If you have the money, you will not have a problem. go the 800,000 way. our own people have made it bad, there are so many criminals that are coming to light, that have been hiding in thailand for a very long time. although it looks like you will be checked thoroughly until it dies down like everything else. a new broom sweeps clean. so chill. you can't be blamed for what your own embassy is not willing or just can't do for you, nothings changed there, a solution will be found.
