  1. They march in groups of 4 to stay under the limit of 5 which is an illegal group..
  2. I haven't heard of wood vinegar before... what is it ans where do you get it? Thanks...
  3. I boil up a brew of crushed garlic and chopped up chilies ... strain it through a cloth to get out the bits.. get a spray bottle from a 20Bt shop.. spray it on.. usually works for things that like to eat leaves..
  4. How is pumpkin so cheap in Thailand?

    Try Australia.. the farmers get about 20 cents a kilo.. Wollies and the other big supermarkets charge $4 or $5 a kilo.. guess who is making money..
  5. Birthday gift - suggestions please

    ...I agree with that one.. delusional ego polish.. but in a culture that is so status conscious it helps establish the pecking order...
  6. Birthday gift - suggestions please

    My girl loves gold.. sure, she likes to wear it on special occasions.. lots of gold ..big face.. but the main reason she likes it is because it is a form of saving money.. if she needed money in a hurry she would just take it down to the gold shop and sell it or take it to a pawn shop and collect it later.. it is an old habit and seems to work for her and her family. Blenders and things for the house don't make it.. 'it is for the house.. not me..'.. A dinner out with family and a birthday cake is always a winner.. Buying gold.. 1/4 bhat doesn't do it.. 1/2 is acceptable.. 1 bhat is for true love and wishful thinking...
  7. Ha!,, they obviously didn't make it to the beach!
  8. What's wrong with this picture?

    ...if the guy is serious.. it is a reasonable question.. but probably better suited to a photography forum..
  9. What's wrong with this picture?

    Haha!... good question!... being generous I thought perhaps looking for advice on how to take a better photo..
  10. What's wrong with this picture?

    ...you are shooting into the light.. if you want some light on the subject you would need to be on the other side.. I see people doing this all the time.. ...apart from that a pretty boring subject.. a couple of people of no interest and a bit of clutter.. I'm not sure if this is morning or evening.. but whatever.. another time of day with light on the palms and something interesting .. it might work.. if you like the sign .. get it centered.. and crop out the uninteresting foreground.. if you are interested in taking good photos Google 'rule of thirds'..
  11. People in Thailand

    Isaan wedding..
  12. I'm not a Christian but there is a lot of wisdom in the Serenity Prayer... Jai yen yen.. God, give me grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed, Courage to change the things which should be changed, and the Wisdom to distinguish the one from the other. Living one day at a time, Enjoying one moment at a time, Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace, Taking, as Jesus did, This sinful world as it is, Not as I would have it, Trusting that You will make all things right, If I surrender to Your will, So that I may be reasonably happy in this life, And supremely happy with You forever in the next. Amen.
  13. Cost of living?

    ..Can't afford to.. 5 years ago a big Chang cost me 47 Bt.. now 55 at the mom & pop shop across the road.. outrageous!
