Re: Jobs for young Thai people

I have some uneducated relatives back in Tennessee who lost their jobs during the recession around 2007, and rather than take a new job which was outside their skillset and paying lower wages than they had before, they sat on their butts and collected food stamps and other government handouts. Most...

Re: Jobs for young Thai people

The best thing that could help young people is for the Future Forward party to get the bill passed that they will put forward this week. It is to stop conscription & replace it with a system where volunteers in the armed forces will be given a 5 year training programme to learn a trade & come out o...

Re: Jobs for young Thai people

Mrs tam's oldest niece languished for the best part of a year after graduating from Rajabhat. After a 6-month, totally unpaid 'internship' at Bangkok Hospital, she was back home, lazing around in her room, sucking up the free internet and lamenting the lack of opportunities. However, about 2 months...

That was the last 10K Baht of completely wasted money. Should have spent it setting her ...

Re: Stickman Comes To Udon Map

Stick does not just write about the bar scene, he covers a lot of what is going on in Thailand especially issues regarding foreigners. As well he speaks fluent Thai and probably knows more about Thailand than most of us put together.

Re: Is it time to say bye Thailand?

Myself and two of my friends used to make regular trips to Sihanoukville. Very laid back with pristine beaches and prices were much cheaper than Thailand. Before the last trip we were warned that the Chinese had completely taken over Sihanoukville. Of course we had to see for ourselves. We stayed i...

I first went to Thailand in 2003 and I loved it. The people were happy, my Canadian dollar went a very long way, it was not crowded and the Thais liked us being there. The interesting thing that I noticed every year when I went back was costs going up and it is still doing so along with a poor excha...
