  1. Interesting. Does it mean our (expats) stock is going up? Are we a better alternative? Does the subservient Thai female still exist? Personally I think Yes, Yes and No.
  2. The comparison period for me, not so much the minor things like motorcyclists using the sidewalk as an expressway or Thai greed and lies which are daily obstacles to surmount or work around.. I think I've assimilated this well with a mai pen rai attitude after all I am no more than a visitor here no matter what my work permit says. This is not an indictment of Thailand but of Asia in general. I compare my life daily.. I miss speaking my local dialect, I compare Saturdays watching my favourite football team longing to be in the stands with my mates, the banter you can only get with close friend

    It was good to meet you and Steve last night. I never realised you were so busy doing the tourist thing. And here's me thinking you were being boring leaving early, my sincere apologies. Have a safe trip back home on Wednesday. Make sure you make the most of your remaining 4 days together!!. Chok dee.
  4. I know what you mean Stu. Had a date with Ciaran last night, after a couple of beers he left me! Ciaran, Its good to know your still alive mate, What happened? See you tonight for the football soi 11. Gold Diggers, can smell em, call it sixth sense. The look, the mannerisms. ?I have no money? or ?I am an English teacher? usually works for me.
  5. Best Investment? My new suit I wore to the interview for my work here.
  6. Money to me is never having to worry where the next meal is coming from. I?m still as mean and tight fisted as I was when I got my first pay check. I?ve been known to ?get the beers in? or buy a bottle of whiskey sometimes, only after I?m inebriated and don?t know what I?m doing though!
  7. Matisse ? ?Your profile: About me I?m a Graduate level professional ? I seek an intelligent (possibly intellectual), beautiful (I'll confirm) female of any age who knows what she wants, with a progressive world view and who loves a good sense of humour.? Me too but I don?t understand your ?As high as you want it to be? post surely you would want the odds to be as low as possible?
  8. Saw my first dead Thai guy last night, I suppose it was just a matter of time. Rama IV road 2330 last night. His head looked out of shape! Obviously came off his bike and lost his fight with physics and the road. It was quite horrifying and what I found odd was the Police motorcyclist didn’t attempt to preserve the guys dignity covering the corpse with a sheet or something. Next was a Toyoto VIOS looking like a bananna after coming off worse with a Fortuna (intersection Nawamin and Rama IV). The Fortuna hitting the VIOS side on, I hope everyone was OK. There’s a saying in England that ever

  10. Many thanks for everyone at TF for spending the time to post replies. Your time is appreciated. Make sure to catch up with me Saturday and I?ll make sure to get the drinks in. Think I already knew the answer to my question but it was reassuring to receive replies backing up my assumptions. Like to share some feedback on the posts:- Cherryberry - can?t understand why you say ?but if she gives a negative answer, I?m still available? then I read your profile ?Single (Not looking)? bit of a contradiction? Beejoir ? ?Not ethical? 100% agree, really hit a nerve their. OutOfOrder ? very perceptive of
  11. Looking back I never gave it a thought until your post Khun_lung A car?s a car to me not bothered about it to much, gets me to the office and to client?s premises. Now if I were to lose my driver, that would be something I would miss very much!
  12. Thanks guys, sounds like the next event?s going to cost me a few beers! Think I?ve found one of the elusive top 5% of the female species here. Cherryberry - wouldn?t go as far to say I?m in love with her ? yet, but she sure does ?float my boat?. Been working quite closely with her the last couple of weeks but don?t want to damage the friendship we?ve built up so far. Beejoir, a good tip I got from ?The Punisher?, always say you?re a teacher, it really does work well to filter out the gold diggers here.
  13. Tai recently completed her MBA in business accounting, with a computer science BSc already she hasn?t graduated to the I love me stage. 24 and cute as a button I get an urge every time she asks for my assistance. She wai?s me every morning and shows me continual respect. Asking her out would diminish the reputation I?ve worked hard to build since coming here 3 months ago, even enquiring about her friends and maybe going out for dinner with them would be career suicide. I see no drive and determination in the majority of Thai girls I meet. This trait is number 1 for me. Tai for me is the ultima
  14. What?s your boyfriend thinking about leaving you alone to have a ?terrible experience?? Your bf should be helping you to build confidence. The fact that you want to meet new ?friends? makes me wonder if the prejudice is correct. The fact that tg?s are always on the lookout for the next step up the ladder makes me suspicious. To understand the prejudice is one thing to deal with it is another. I would not endorse what Periboea said, just shows lack of respect for your bf. I think both of you need to portray a sense of togetherness and find a social gathering that you both can enjoy to find new
  15. Yes Kitschguy there are restrictions. Good posts from Viggop and CiaranM. You?re in the UK, best place to go is the Thai-consulate in Hull and get a non-immigrant ?O? visa. You can?t work on this visa however. See my journal entry Non-immigrant ?O? visa for more information. There are a few guys on TF that have gone down this route. I re-checked my journal and have seen you made a comment. Depends on your individual circumstances of course. Do not book a one-way ticket without a visa. You will be denied boarding for the reason Viggop stated.
