    kfc coleslaw is worse than that stuff in a squeezy bottle that doesnt need to be refrigerated. just grate a carrot, some cabbage and add mayo. (add red cabbage for fancy) its better than anything else youll find here.

    Peculiar Thai Custom?

    i have experienced similar to both ends of the spectrum, insistence that im 'rich' (despite being unemployed) and therefore i should pay the bill. as well as borderline contempt at the suggestion we split the bill regardless of the situation with the 'host' insisting quite theatrically that they will pay. almost like a soap opera pose. I put it down to assumed social ranking and whos trying to impress who vs whos being a sponge or just skint. if i care at all about my dining partner/s i offer to cover it this and they pay next time... they accept this, ,, every time
  5. nothing shocking here, the roads are a free for all. even video evidence rarely equates to charges being pressed against these dangerous people. anyone who has driven more than a few km here knows that its a deadly venture with constant speeding, line swerving, no indication and zero comprehension of the highway code. in fact its a sick joke that an unknown but significant percentage of thai road users are unlicensed and unskilled resulting in the daily endangerment of everyone else~! but never mind

    Its annoying when thais drive slow in the overtaking lane

    Those pesky apologists, eh? Always attempting to downplay the dangerous behaviour of strangers for seemingly no reason at all!

    "It was like that when I found it"

    having never met you, if you personally are not better than the average Thai 'worker', believe me when i tell you, you have more important things to worry about than who might be dissing who. 16 years without a single contractor or professional NOT making multiple basic errors at every possible opportunity speaks for itself. on the plus side, my plumbing, sparky, carpentry & painting skills have all improved a bit.
