  1. Went to Spain last month, tapas was very cheap, good sized portions for less than 3 pounds, I don't drink but did buy non alcoholic beers in the supermarket, so cheap, about 30p per can. Thailand is too expensive at the moment, hopefully a stronger pound in the next year or so, a weaker baht will help too.
  2. Thaksin, Yingluck, Sondhi, their greed caught up with them in the end. He should have been jailed for the airport takeover anyway.
  3. Unwavering support for their absent heroine

    Ten hour drive, picnic on the floor then drive home, a thai classic
  4. So easy to get angry in Thailand as you're dealing with dickheads 24/7, if this story is true then the guy made a mistake in getting into it with the Thais, it's their land and they like to remind you of that any chance they get.
  5. Wasn't there a ban within 1km of educational institutions a few years back? They seemed quite strict about it, for a couple of months.
  6. Baby dolphin found dead on beach in Pratamnak

    The classic Thai police man laughing at death.
  7. An old dog followed me around when I stayed there, was a lovely old dog, one day I was concerned as the dog had come up to our bungalow but couldn't get down the stairs, I asked a resort worker to help him down, well the guy just beat the animal with a broom and pushed it down the stairs, such cruelty. Place wasn't that great anyway, the high speed ferry on the way back to Chumporn almost broke in half too, was terrifying.
  8. Doesn't sound like good news for the TEFL industry.
  9. What startup will have the money to bring all their staff to Thailand? and that's if all staff even want to live there.
  10. I feel the same about the sneaky Thai who stole my phone, didn't make the news though (funny that)
  11. Big C is the same, only makes profits from renting out its space to other vendors.
  12. I worked in a government school about 12 years ago, the Thai teachers were always smacking the kids. This guy lost his cool because he thinks being a teacher in a thai government school is something to be taken seriously. You pay peanuts you get monkeys, I'd also be surprised if any foreign teachers in these thai schools have degrees in English or education (no one did when I was doing it), why would anyone spend 4 years studying and work for 35,000 thb per month? I think we can all agree that sort of money just isn't worth it, not to mention the fact that the thai teachers don't like you because the reason you're there is because their English is worse than tarts.
  13. Midweek rant: A plea from a lowly pedestrian

    The frustrations of living in a turd world country, do your kids a favour and give them a decent life back in the west.
  14. To qoute the thai woman on the bbc the other night, Phuket is like the titanic heading for the iceberg.
  15. Why were people lining the pockets of these tealeafs when they could have just used kodi? Those dudes will be ok though once they pony up a few mill.
