    Snipper trimmer line trimmer head

    I dont think that line would be meant for the bump head feed type spool. But would be perfect for the plate type heads the Thais use where u just put on 4 short lengths. Would last forever Sent from my SM-J730GM using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    This thai girl

    Mate if shes in Pattaya she probably has done some bar work if not freelance stuff for money. The "non lookers" still pull punters too if they are confident and charming infact a lit of blokes I know go for these birds over a fashion model starfish type. They see no wrong in it. Ive had teachers doctors nurses and bargirls and in many ways theyre the same re money. Its just the educated ones have more potential debt. Even if theyre not money focussed their friends will be stirring the pot...asking how much per month shes getting and where is her gold and LV handbags. This will stir in her something more important to Thais than money....embarrassment. Be very careful at this point. Im sure thats why so many of us get sucked in here before weve learnt the ropes. The long distance relationship thing is a killer. Shell be pulling on ur heart strings whether u realise it or not. All ur feelings will be raw and magnified and u are vulnerable. Go back to wen you were physically living with her. There must have been good reason why your instincts told u to boot her. Be very careful at this point. There are literally millions more fish in the sea. Just the fact she lived anywhere near Pattaya would be a deal breaker for me. To understand the culture here...im up country. Went to the hospital the other day with my missus and were talking to the nurse. She asked my girl how much I give her per month. She said she hear story farang always pay. So they get a farang bloke some of them beleive u are cheating them if ur not coughing up. The trick is to find a girl smart and devoted enough to get past all that. Not easy and its not going to happen in Pattaya. Very immature and naive culture here (putting it politely) Sent from my SM-J730GM using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  3. Anyone had any luck doing this? Getting some reasonably tender eye fillet but lacks flavour because the beef here isnt aged. Ive read needs 2 weeks min in a cool room at presicely the right temperature...or it will go rotten rather than age. Anyone have any info?

  4. Mrs is thinking of starting a small business selling 2nd hand clothes, bags etc. Apparently Aranya Prathet is the place to go to buy, near the Cambodian border. Has anyone been or know of a better place to source second hand stuff like this?
  5. Anyone seen where I could buy a standard blue steel chefs skillet in Thailand? Seen some on Lazada but 3000 baht plus. Normally would be under 1000 baht Sent from my SM-J730GM using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    Snipper trimmer line trimmer head

    Got one of these at the little local hardware for 80 baht. Easy to load the line on. Just give it a pretty good work out and line still ok. I dont care if I have to put new line on before every use because so easy. Never had any luck with stupid bump heads. Usually run out of line or jam 90% into the job and then 10 or 15 minutes to sort it. The steel line would be ok I think as long as you secure it well and have ur guard on. Cant be anyworse than a brush cutter blade Sent from my SM-J730GM using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  8. Have a Makita line trimmer and the bump head has never been any good. I see the Thais seem to use a plate with short lengths of trimmer line on them. What is the story with these? Are they buy and throw away or do you regularly replace the short bits of trimmer line or is it super HD trimmer line? I trim against cement, pathways etc so go through trim line pretty fast

    Thai child separation anxiety

    artding kids, I have one son at an age of 21 in my home country. He have a soft tough of something called Catch 22, which you probably never heard of. I have a daugther in Thailand that has hyperactivity disorder. That´s why I consider myself an expert on child behaviour and how you should treat them. Haha. This just keeps getting betterer [emoji23][emoji23] Sent from my SM-J730GM using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    Thai child separation anxiety

    Sheryl...I deeply respect ur advice as always but things just arent anything like you have described re afraid to be alone with me, Im unsafe and a child abuser. The issues have been going on long before I came into their lives and in fact have improved. I have 4 happy and successful grown up children in Australia who I raised alone from an early age so Im not new to all this. Again I respect ur expertise but if you think it is possible to control 2 x 2.5 year olds on an outing etc with nothing more than a cuddle and a few supportive words I would suggest youve never tried it Sent from my SM-J730GM using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    Thai child separation anxiety

    Listen lets be clear here. The child isnt receiving regular beatings. Were talking about a slap on the leg. Nor is the child withdrawn or a cowering mess. Hes actually quite a confident happy child. All of the above has been assumed and forgive me if I seem to have painted that picture. The child just hasnt had anyone sit and speak to him or teach him anything. He is picking things up very fast now. His behaviour is not of a terrified damaged child...more of a child that has never been given any attention and he's making up for lost time. I never shout or dicipline any child out of anger nor do I scream and rant, at anyone. Again assumptions. Sent from my SM-J730GM using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    Unless you have just summed everything up from the last few posts...of course the child has development issues. He has been neglected. We are seeking a nursery school for him this week. Sent from my SM-J730GM using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    Thai child separation anxiety

    Amazing. Ive been out all day so havent responded but amazing the wild assumptions that are made and inevitably the pack dogs turn on each other. Of course the child has issues and if I didnt care or understand this I wouldnt bother asking. Smacking the child around and all the other colourful extremes are just not the case. Its not out of temper or frustration. One smack is used as a last resort. There is no jealousy ranting or screaming. The child is with us 24 / 7 and receiving more attention than any child would get at the expense of my own child. Let me also say out of all the impractical do gooder BS including a psychiatrist and antidepressants (he speaks and understands very little Thai or English) there were hardly any replies of any real advice apart from wild assumptions and adding 2+2 and getting 15. The problem is that bad that it is impossible for the mother to be away from the child for more than a minute and she has asked me to disipline him. It is just impossible to live like that for her and for me and if unaddressed will end up in us parting ways...which ultimately end up in no ones best interest...particularly the childs. And my interest in controlling the child is not so I can get 30 mins to have sex. This problem will manifest itself in different ways in the future. Why so many thais have jealousy and separation issues when they grow up and get partners. Has the world gone mad or am I really the only person here thinks a strategical smack now and then is necesary? Sent from my SM-J730GM using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    Its very hard to understand much of what you are saying due to your spelling and grammar, however I will "preserve". Firstly I do not enjoy smacking, only as a last resort and then I make it meaningful. I don't believe in endless yak yak that goes no where and teaches them nothing. The abuse I am talking about were lit cigarettes and worse. Who said you don't smack children these days? General society? because last time I looked many kids today are no good for anything but sitting in a room all day playing violent computer games and wondering why the rest of the world doesn't care about their feelings. Company I worked for virtually abandoned any idea of employing fresh out of schoolers as most were selfish, entitled and useless. Any kid needs psychological coaching and discipline of course, and to me smacking is part of that albeit a last resort. I respect everyones opinion including your own and issues of disciplining children are devisive. I do not understand much of what you are saying but my intentions are good, certainly not evil. If that were the case I would not be on here seeking advice.
