  1. Goodbye hanging wires - hello modern Bangkok!

    The entangled cluster of wires I saw when I first came to Bangkok was what reminded me this is still a third world country. Maybe that notion can be buried with the wires? I doubt it.
  2. Criticism

    I'm working on it. We have 6 more years here in the US before I get a pension, then off to Thailand at least in the winters (We live in Michigan, beautiful summers here). Hopefully I can manage enough functional Thai by then to get by without my wife talking for me all the time.
  3. Criticism

    My wife outright laughs at me when I try to speak Thai. How's that for criticism. lol
  4. Apparently they live longer that way!
  5. My wife is with me for the money.

    I always see these questions. Is she just out for your money? The women could ask a similar question. Is he just out for sex with a younger woman? If both people are getting their needs met, then no one is being taken advantage of.
  6. Will be good for the criminals to know they have nothing to fear breaking into the home of a lone farang. Very comforting. They're the only ones with guns.
  7. I don't know, seems like he's also getting something out of it. Sex with a young woman and probably his house taken care of. Maybe he's good with that deal. It's his money and life. Or he could forget about all of It and sit in a bar all day and drink himself to death a lonely old man, bitter and ridiculing Thai/farang relationships on TV forum on his phone all day. To each their own.
  8. Don't forget all the Michael Jackson noses you see. To me they're ruining natural beauty.
  9. How about all the little Buddha statues glued to the dashboard of taxis? Is there some sort of rule book for this or is it some subjective argument going on within the Buddhist membership?
  10. First visit to Thailand travel questions...

    I carried my passport with me everywhere I went. I think 60 days before is a good time to buy a ticket. I got a hep C shot before I went and the second one after I came back.
  11. "Thai women, especially those from the northeast region, are soft-spoken and submissive," she said. " My Isaan girl must not have gotten the memo on that.
  12. Amazon Prime - anyone else been duped like me?

    I've had Prime for 10 years and love it. But the marketing sneakiness isn't cool for sure.
  13. Manipulate the tourist visa process or you're screwed. It's not set up for young people to stay in Thailand long term. Sorry.
