  1. I am not as unwitting to assume that Japanese men will commit harakiri upon their failure of duties in the office, but I did read that there is a above average suicide rate by people who succumb to social pressures. What I meant more about Japanese cultures are more along the lines the gender roles and the social casts. I have been to Japan but to just visit as a tourist it would be impossible to get answers to these questions. Japanese are very private people, and politely bow out of any topic they find uncomfortable. In the novels a Samurai can cut down a peasant who may have been rude to him without repercussion, to what extent do those of samurai ancestry relate to those of whose family may have been farmers? In the novel, in ancient Japan sex was looked upon as healthy and there was not as much taboo associated with it as in western culture. It seemed normal for high borne man to have a wife and a mistress. In modern Japanese society how do women view their role as wife, sexual partner and how do they look upon the mistress? Thank you for the suggestions. I will take a look at Bushido and Musashi Miyamoto. I apologise if my questions are offensive they do go deeply into the territory that may not be the most comfortable topic for Japanese. Do not feel pressure to answer them if they cause you discomfort.
  2. Have you ever read a book called "Shogun" by James Clavell. I am wondering how accurately it reflecs Japanese culture at that time. And how much of what he describes is still accurate today?
  3. That depends where you look. I still after 6 years have never been asked for money. If I went to a bar to look I am sure I would find lot's of girls who like a few baht for their time. I think in any place the people thar you surround yourself with, shape your perception of the world.
  4. Hi Matt, I am pretty booked at the moment, but check out http://www.bkkwebdesign.com if you like what you see contact me at my [email protected] my website domain. Thanks.

  9. Loli- Hey you, want this? Admin - Yes, although I have to say Philippines was by far the WORST one. NEVER EVER GO TO MANILA FOR ANYTHING lol SMS - you are welcome JapAm - Kunny is a doll. Just have to keep an eye on her. I am glad I didn't go to the bridge either. Soda - Compared to the last 2 I had... ABSOLUTELY Querida - I think it changed from 2 years ago. The service was not bad, as I said b4... the worst service I got was in Manila, closely followed by the embassy in Perth that closed without warning and the embassy that I sent my passport to in WA that lost the passport. SBI - Yes. No further answers Beej - I think air asia charged me 2x then. Have to check but lazy over $25. King - Yes, freaking paradise!
  10. 6 fireplaces don't have to be all lit at the same time... didn't you also state that the area has sunny weather? So when is it cold in LA?
  11. Just went to Phnom Penh. 1. There are NO 2x entry visa's if you walk into the embassy. I asked the Officer in Thai he told me those are only offered in Laos. 2. They ask you to WAIT 4 DAYS. I got there Wed, the officer told me MONDAY... I politely asked in Thai if it can be done Fri because I am leaving Saturday. He said ok. There is a guy out on the street who says he can get it for you the next day. Had a chat with him after I got my passport back, he was very nice. (I didn't need to use his services because I was getting my visa back on Friday.) Traveling: Took a flight from BKK to Phnom Pen via Air Asia. Had Flamingo Hotel pick me up (otherwise Taxi $9 Tuk Tuk $7) Flamingo SUCKED. Dirty bedsheets, floor, hair on towels, loud street room, nothing there was worth $25. Walk around the area and you can find $10 - $17 hotels with better room. I like the fancy guest house. Check out the $17 room, clean, wi-fi, nice bed... etc. Rented a motorbike 250cc offroad Honda for $12 a day went to Sihanoukville. On the way there I took Routr 4. All highways are 2 lane roads. Route 4 is the way to go, if you are taking a car you will have to pay toll. Cambodian Drivers/Motorbikes are far worse than Thai. Just plain flipping retarded. On the way back took Route 3. DO NOT TAKE THAT ROAD. It is a giant pot-hole. Even on a motor-cross bike driving through gravel, dust and incoming traffic on one lane roads is not fun. Also there are too many little towns where the local residents like to test your brakes... unfortunately for them my bike didn't come with any. Got my 2 month single entry visa. On the way out Cambodian airport charged me $25 airport TAX... WTF! Glad to be home. Guess who I saw on my way aroung town? This was the water festival that resulted in tradgedy. Fortunately went home before the whole thing happened. It was just too crowded. This pic doesnt even begin to show how crowded it was. The museum wasn't bad at all! The bird and it's prey Poverty at it's ugliest. Walking around And here is the ruins that are rather popular on the beach... The beach Cambodian Airport employees earning their $25 airport tax I wish I took more pics of the beach, and the crazy motorcycle journey but I simply forgot because I was having such a great time. I want to thank Kunny again for showing snookyville again.
