Re: Bar girl advice for stupid farang...

I think it would have been better to offer nothing. You see giving 100,000 baht in front of friends and family in the village would be a huge insult. Even poor farmers can usually give 200,000 baht. In other words, to offer 100,000 baht would demonstrate stinginess and show that you were not seriou...

Re: Memories of the 50s

Obviously American orientated, it was all so different in the UK. We still had food rationing until '54, even then many items were either not available or in short supply, even then only available to the very rich. We didn't have any race problems, apart from a few Yankie soldiers we had never seen ...

Re: Suggestion to improve discussions

The last thing this forum needs is more restrictive censorship. I thought members were for the most part, mature intelligent people able to judge for themselves the reliabilty of quoted links and respond appropiately in their replies.
Maybe I am wrong again . :-"

Tops in Nong Wai

Sad to say although not surprised the Tops Superkoom store in Nong Wai is closing permanently at the end of this month. It never looked to be a success as it was just another mum and Pops style establishment, over crowded with the same stuff all the other village shops were selling, on the other han...

Re: The Little Piggy

We've been eating market beef/pork for most of the 21 years we've been here....with no ill effects. With all that said, if I saw a man pushing a shopping cart of freshly butchered pork into the Nongwahsaw market early in the morning......I might not even bat an eye. But back in the US?

NVM, got the info I wanted. Now only have to worry about the daily drive X2 into town.
There are several privately operated mini buses doing the school run to town from Nong Wai going past your house every day if you don't want the drive.

Well done trubrit.
Looks a nice quiet drive.
Is it a bring your own for food etc or have the locals got their food stands set up.
No didn't see any food stalls but camping is allowed, all the tents looked the same so would guess rented up there .
