Half as serious and less / Re: signs you’ve spent too long in Thailand
« Last post by dawn on Yesterday at 09:00:13 PM »
that article sounds like it comes from, not someone that lives here but has holidayed here, as it's not the normal spills of garbage, from your longtime expat blogger, apart from the dangerous roads and cheap beer, the rest are unusual reasons we normally hear of. its an article from a female, so god bless her.

your main point being all expats moan about the place they chose to live in,did they make a wrong choice, No they would still moan if they was in there own country.

Not so much a knock at our fellow gentlemen but more of a laugh on, signs you’ve spent too long in Thailand, not that funny an article more of a cheap charlie/backpackers ramblings. The only one remotely truthful is no.35 There's always loads of complaints about the place we chose to retire our new home thailand    BUT... You realize there’s no such thing as staying in Thailand for too long, and head to the nearest immigration office to extend your stay. I'm sure some of you can come up with our own signs you’ve spent too long in Thailand. Jenny Maclean the author. matadornetwork.com

35 signs you’ve spent too long in Thailand

At first, you’re bemused by how much can be piled onto the back of a motorbike. You’re confused when your driver tells you the Grand Palace is closed. You’re appalled that you have to clamber over three other boats with your 40-pound backpack to get to your ferry.

You can’t put your finger on exactly when it happened, but one day you notice that you’re not fazed by anything any longer. All of those WTF moments you experienced in your first week slip away unnoticed, and suddenly become the new normal. Shuttle service running half an hour late? Standard. Torrential downpour that came out of nowhere? Classic.

You know you’re close to maxing out your visa when:

1. You’ve had Pad Thai for 20 consecutive meals.

2. You can cross the road without fear of imminent death.

3. Clothes you brought from home have made way for banana t-shirts, Chang singlets, and bright orange elephant pants.

4. Watermelon shakes are life.

5. Magic shakes and lucky balloons — you know which one goes up high and which one gets you high.

6. You go out for a quick mooch around the market and come back with five beach sarongs, four coconut bowls, three bikinis, two Buddha figurines and a pair of knock-off Adidas sneakers.

7. But your entire haul only cost you $20 because you’re a master haggler.

8. You consider 80 cents quite expensive for a 1.5-liter bottle of water.

9. You know what a bum gun is and how to use one.

10. Walking down the street takes twice as long in Thailand than at home because there are many stray cats that require your attention.

11. You’ve coined the verb “to be templed out” and boy, is it a real thing.

12. Toilet roll and soap are considered lavish luxuries.

13. You’ve snorkeled with reef sharks, more species of fish than you can count and… oh look, a box jellyfish.

14. Your thighs are rock solid from hovering over soggy toilet seats.

15. Wading knee-deep into the sea, clambering up a ladder, and almost sending the other passengers over the side as you crash land in a long-tail is the only way to travel.

16. Tissues, hand sanitizer, and a poncho are indispensable items you don’t leave the hostel without.

17. Gloriously cheap beer has become a staple part of your diet.

18. You can’t go one day without popping into a 7/11.

19. You’ve accepted that your blood is sweet nectar to the 27,000 mosquitoes you attract each day.

20. Your feet are permanently dirty — and you’ve stopped caring.

21. 7/11 toasted sandwiches are your go-to in a budget crisis.

22. You laugh at first-timers attempting to use the pedestrian crossing.

23. You have a bamboo tattoo of an elephant, lotus flower, or the word for “courage” in Thai.

24. Seeing monkeys on the beach doesn’t faze you.

25. Even if one looks like it’s about to clamber up your leg.

26. You can’t get Celine Dion out of your head.

27. You happily go about your day in outfits you wouldn’t normally dream of leaving the house in.

28. You can’t remember the last time you wore real shoes.

29. You’ve pretty much forgotten what a sweater is.

30. You pop spring rolls like Pringles.

31. You’ve been stretched, crunched, and pounded in massage parlors across the country. But you still keep going back for more.

32. The prospect of paying more than $3 for a meal back home fills you with horror.

33. It’ll feel strange putting toilet paper down the actual toilet.

34. You don’t know what you’re going to do without mango shakes or banana and Nutella roti in your life.

35. You realize there’s no such thing as staying in Thailand for too long, and head to the nearest immigration office to extend your stay.

Scams & Crime / Scammers target TOT customers

Scammers target TOT customers

TOT Plc customers in several provinces have been targeted by scammers in recent weeks, with the Chai Nat branch reporting more than 100 cases in a single day.

According to TOT customer service in Chai Nat, more than 100 calls were made last Friday to complain about scammers targeting TOT customers. Several were duped into giving their personal information to the gang.

Based on the complaints, the scammers, posing as TOT officials, told the potential victims they had overdue payments. If they did not transfer money to specified bank accounts to pay the bills, their telephone and internet services would be disconnected in two hours.

For those who insisted they had cleared the bills, scammers would ask for their personal details and ID card numbers they claimed "necessary" for correcting the mistakes in the computer system. Several fell for this trick.

Chutima Boonchaipanich, a TOT official of Chai Nat branch, called on customers to hang up on anyone claiming to be a TOT staff and demanding them to pay the bills.

She said the practice was never a standard operation and TOT Plc customers can make payments at TOT office branches or to authorised agents specified in their monthly statements. She also urged the customers to report the suspected scammers to the TOT hotline 1100.

In Si Sa Ket, Chaiya Wongsalert, manager of the TOT office in Kantharalak district, said more than 300 individual customers and government agencies had reported scam calls to the branch.

Mr Chaiya said the callers threatened to disconnect telephone and Internet services if the customers failed to transfer money in two hours and used various methods to get personal and financial details. He urged the customers to be on their guard against scams.

State-owned TOT Plc operates landline and mobile phone services, as well broadband internet.

Who's the anus here, as Sanook.com reports: a Cop finds 200 meth tablets in Thai man’s anus then poses with his bum. They found a blue plastic bag stuffed in his bum. Inside were a total of 203 yaba tablets. Lets hope they don't do a reconstruction of the crime, could be quite embarrassing, enough to make you crack up  ;D  http://news.sanook.com/5059774/

Half as serious and less / What makes a Thai

Great post/pics by asia-backpackers.com. Headed What makes a Thai. some might think it's an insult but looking on the funny side i'm sure it's not,as it might be difficult to explain in words, hence the pics of people of our colourfull home Thailand.

What it takes to be a Thai

With its many different ethnic peoples and its long history, it is difficult to explain in words, the people of Thailand, their traits, idiosyncrasies and general out-look on the world. In the hope that we can give others a better understanding on what makes the people of the colourful Kingdom tick, we have produced a number of collages, that we believe illustrates in a humorous way…… what it is to be ‘Thai’
 
Road safety is paramount


The third gender are excepted for who they are….


The last picture in the collage shows Lady Boys at the annual ‘Draft Pick’
The Ministry of Public Health considered homosexuality and choosing to be a Kathoeya a mental illness until 2002. In 2011, the military revised the language for 3rd gender exemption from conscription from ‘‘severe mental illness’’ to ‘‘gender does not correspond with the sex at birth’’.

Security is very important to the Thai people


Keeping cool is an art


Taxi cabs are in a world of their own


Thai’s are an ingenious lot


Safety plays a big part in every-day life


Motor bikes play a key role in almost every one’s life


The young of Thailand


Finally for me nothing sums up the Thai people, more than their use of the humble toilet paper, their ingenuity and flair, for seeing the world around them differently, to most other people, means this simply piece of every day life is used as:
