😅..  I'm just giving you my 2 cents Charlie..no offense.  You know why i'm telling you that ? remember when we're kids ..our Father/someone who cannot fill his/her promise to us  and as an exchnage giving us many gifts or even money. That what happen if someone give too many gifts, chances are soon or later she will find another guy who can fork her  out more than you . Does James Bond give many gifts to all of his girls ?..i dont think he's a Cheap Charlie too😁

Gee, the conversation was about how to keep them, not how to buy new models.

LOL Charlie, I already made it quite clear what I thought of your 2 cents... but you keep offering more. We must be up to 50 cents already.

20k. Includes everything including two dentals, but does not include holidays or larger purchases. I do go thru a few bottles of premium booze at home every month. My wife has a job and buys her own kit. She also pays for her holidays until I hit 62. I kick her parents a bit of money or take the family (6) to dinner every so often (4k).

 

Small, comfy flat 600m from MRT in CBD

Transportation to and from work

Wife, self dinner out 2x monthly. 4k

Durian$

Eat out all the time

Pay for wife's food when together

All electric 5-6 to 10pm MF, 11-12-10SS AC

Water

Laundry 60pcs

 

I enjoy my job, busy with it, teaching smart kids. When I've had enough I'll go back to retirement and we'll most likely leave Bangkok. The income is great to stave off cash burn, but I can't afford both of us to be retired and traveling before 62-67. Shes 15 years younger, she can work another ten years especially as she gets 3 weeks paid and 2 unpaid a year for our trips.

 

My wife and I are pretty lazy on weekends. We save up and take long weekends and bigger international trips.

 

The flat is fine due to our working hours. It's quiet, cool even hear birds in the morning. I'll upgrade in a few years, but with the proximity to MRT, laundry, restaurant, 600m to MRT and walking (1-2km) to four malls, it's perfect for our lives. Oh and only 4km in a straight line via scooter to work for wife who has promised me she will sell the contraption before she's 45.

Don't make stupid assumptions in an attempt to justify your own opinions.

I'm haven't got a clue what your talking about.  My point is that if you argue about anything that you put on any public forum then you are inviting people to have an opinion.  You seem to think otherwise..."now what were you arguing about?  I thought we were commenting on "The cost of living in Thailand".

    I don't care how others go about that, if it's good or bad.  I always thought a "Forum " was a place for public discussion" usually in a friendly way.  Not really a point scoring place.
