Strange Day

<>This morning, I was about to head off to another city to meet one of my clients.Any way, I decided I would have my hair cut before the trip so I would look a bit decent and presentable at the pending meetings.I went to my usual hairdresser and as I was waiting, I hear this guy chatting away with my usual hairdresser.He started with a bit of social chit chat, such as; how are you doing?, how was your weekend? etc.<>Then out of the blue, he popped the question "Do you want to go out

Thanks for all the well wishes

Thank you for your well wishes.I am sorry I have not been able to reply to you individually.  I have been having computer problems today and it is driving me crazy.Don't know whether it was because I updated my internet explorer this morning or something else, but somehow I have lost the usage of my java and as such can not reply to your testimonials....sigh....Just wondering if anyone has had similar problems when they upgraded their Internet Explorer recently.If you did have similar problems,

For those who has an interest in the Thai Baht

Baht Falls as Bank of Thailand Ask Banks to Reduce Speculation By Kevin Lim and Anuchit NguyenMarch 27 (Bloomberg) -- The Thai baht dropped against the dollar after Bank of Thailand Governor Tarisa Watanagase said she had asked lenders to stop speculating on gains in the currency. The baht's rise to a nine-year high last week may crimp growth in exports as it makes goods more expensive in overseas markets relative to regional rivals. The Bank of Thailand confirmed it asked banks to adjust cur

Anyone know of any nice hotels in Kowloon?

Good Day TFers,I will heading off to China and HK around February next year.Any way, in the past, I have always gone straight through HK and into mainland China, but this time around, I would like to see some parts of HK.Although I have been recommended by a friend to stay in Kowloon, I am still keen to hear more from people who have stayed and lived in the city and have fond memory of places they have been to and the hotels they have stayed at.Preferably, I am interested in your views on the "r

Oh what a day in Brisbane!!

Oh what a day it was yesterday in Brisbane.Anything that could have possibly gone wrong did, except for my meeting with my client.My day started with me waking up late and in my rush to get out of the hotel room, I forgot to bring my map of Brisbane with me.  I only realised this when I was half way into my journey when streets and buildings started to look strangely unfamiliar.In my panic, I started to reach for my map but that was nowhere to be found.Now, I was in a frantic state.  I knew I ha

Thank You to my Mates

Tonight, I would like to thank my mates Dave40, Gav, Kaitai, AussieMike, Wallace, Johnno and Steve.Together, we were able to raise $400 aussie dollars for the TLC event.  This is at least $10,000 bahts.This is a great achievement in 3 days - especially if you consider the contributors came from different parts of the world - from Saudi Arabia to Bangkok, to cities across Australia.  However, they are all "AUSSIES".And we will be donating all the money raised (less transactional costs) to the "Br

Any advice is greatly appreciated

I have an office located in a shopping mall. My office is located at a corner and is facing a retail shop. There is about a 4 metre separation (the walking lane for shoppers) between my office and this retail shop.Since last Thursday, he placed a set of furniture (lounge chairs and a coffee table) outside his shop to sell. It straddles about 3 metres out - right in front of my office door.I was astounded and shocked. There was now only a one metre separation between the tip of the furniture to m

Why?

Why is it so hard to give advice to people closest to you?Today, I had two arguments - one with my brother and the other with a close friend I had known for over 15 years.All I was doing was trying to ensure they avoid the mistakes and problems I had already encountered.  But it blew back in my face.....and I ended up having to defend myself.    Now, I am so perplexed!!!I can provide advice to my business clients and I get pay for it, but I can not provide free advice to those closest to me with

Positive things about Thai Women

Over the last few days, I read with alarm at some of the most insulting things that has been said about Thai Women. The worst being "Almost every Thai woman has a price or can be had" and "make no mistake it is all about trade when it comes to Thai woman". Well, I want to write a journal on the positive aspects of Thai women by sharing from my own personal experiences. A few years ago, I decided to travel to across Asia, and on my travel itinerary was Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thaila

The Courage to Begin

Your difficulty and the difficulty of every individual who ever desired to achieve anything worthwhile, comes in the movement. Don't always be intending to live a new life, but never find the time to begin living it. Most people fail because they never get started. They don't go. They don't overcome inertia. They don't begin. Begin to free yourself at once by doing all that is possible with the means you have. As you proceed in this spirit the way will open for you to do more. The

Just wondering

Hi TF members, I am just wondering whether it is safe for tourists to travel to places like Krabi, Trang and Hat Yai. I have heard there is still trouble in Songkhla and Pattani which is not too far away (well at least on the map any way). Thanks in advance for all your feedback.

Any feedback will be greatly appreciated

I am in the midst of planning my trip to Thailand and I came across an unusual promotion which I am considering of taking up on. The promotion is to stay at a 4 plus Star Resort in Phuket for 7 nights for a 30% discount to the normal price. It is located along Patong Beach. But the catch is that you have to participate in a 90 minutes resort tour presentation during your stay. In addition, you need to satisfy the income test. My first thought on this was - this was a time share promotion by

The Sandpiper - a bit long and sad, but very inspiring

True Story: The Sandpiper She was six years old when I first met her on the beach near where I live. I drive to this beach, a distance of three or four miles, whenever the world begins to close in on me. She was building a sandcastle or something and looked up, her eyes as blue as the sea. "Hello," she said. I answered with a nod, not really in the mood to bother with a small child. "I'm building," she said. "I see that. What is it?" I asked, not caring. Oh, I don't know, I just like t
