Re: schools obsessed with uniforms

[quote Teach them early that appearance is much more important than intellectual development. Evidently the appearance thing doesn't register with Thais. They are some of the sloppiest dressers I have ever seen. Never seen an older one with an ironed shirt or pants and never seen a shoe that has be...

Re: Currency Crisis Happening Now

It might be that the Thai economy is on an upward spiral, but it looks like they are set to loose against their neighbour countries as they seem to have much more flexibility in many affairs that are locked in tons of paperwork and corruption inside the Thai government system... Also the fact that t...

Re: Are we into a Recession already here in Udon?

Is it inevitable that many places in Thailand will run into recession... Prices on many goods have gone up aswell as other services, but the average Thai person does not earn the deficit in prices.. I have heard from many people in the village I live in, that things are getting very hard economicall...

Re: Blacksmith who can make Daab sword

Here are a few suggestions: There's an outdoor market about 10km past Nongwahsaw, on the way to Nongbualamphu. In Thai it's called ตลาดห้วยเดื่อ . It's about 200m past the dinosaur museum as you're going toward Nongbualamphu, on the same side as the museum. There's a vendor there who sells a wide v...

Re: Car prices Thailand

Well, mainly out of proportion to house prices and the average Thai worker.. Or I just find the cars quite expensive.. Especially the used ones...
