Yes half a million baht a month, is a normal salary in Switzerland. "

no- that would be in the top 10% of wages.

A normal wedding ring is worth about 10k, it's not very big or heavy. Maybe she's read the stories about how safe hotel 'safe boxes' are.

Just bought my wife a wedding ring, Baht 50+k. The ring I have on one of my fingers is only gold (no gems) and is worth 20k.

I said normal not average. Average is more like 200000. For me twice (or x2.5 if you prefer) average is "normal", we would be talking about middle management in a bank.

If  it's raining or you're living in high crime areas like Pattaya, it's best to keep your wallet in the compartment under the bike seat when travelling.Safe as houses.

absolutely, right not the topic....I'll conclude that there are also people who are poor in Switzerland, who barely make US$ 4000,-- a month in a place where the smallest 1 room shack will cost US$ 1000,--/per month not to mention the other issues that you are surely aware as compulsary medical, at US$ 450,--, a simple pizza for US$ 20,--  and so on....the streets are not paved with gold in Switzerland, and if a privileged few enjoy high scale salaries, poverty and crime are increasing in the swiss metropoles, just as over burdening taxes. .. let's get back to topic now...

Right, I hate soi dogs and the idiots who feed them. I think they should be removed (the dogs), in the most humane manner possible. For while I thought castration was the way, but I am getting too old to run behind dogs with two bricks, and I could also hurt my thumbs.

Yes...at one point, as said previously, castration campaigns would be necessary and further on, more radical methods of eradication that will highly upset animal lovers like myself....but are a necessity in general public interest. But cultural or religious issues could put a breach on such actions.

 

As for those who feed stray animals, it's a bit like the old ladies in european metros, feeding the pigeons who create havoc on infrastructure.

I just don't understand why people take a 1 Baht gold necklace out and put it in a bag and carry 10.000 baht in cash and need 2 phones with them to go and feed some dogs Please explain - no sympathy for this stupidity in a place like Pattaya where this activity happens daily
