Buddha Day Custom ?????

Must disagree up to the Abbot at the wife's temple. I suspect a small donation to the local temple might help the Abbot changes his thoughts on the spiritual advice he is giving your Mrs. Good luck.

“Welcome to the Republic of Thaksin

Yep that's Vlad's Red Shirt police and soldiers up in Chiang Rai doing the business by taking out 6 drug mules. I've crossed off my must do list Chiang Rai jungle treks. Too dangerous with Thaksin policing solutions going on up there. I gather Vlad would like these gentlemen down in Phuket sorting o...

Work Permit

The old dilemma - a small chance of being caught but a very harsh penalty.

Good point redwolf. The snotty luxury brands should be absolute trash out here in NZ if this story is true. After all they've presumably had to cross the equator to get here.

Thailand hot spot for cheap copy steroids

I've taken cheap steroids and dogs off my shopping list fellas. I think the scariest purchase in Thailand would be quality time with a Thai woman who unexpectedly turns out to be a lady boy.

And watch out for neighbours, farang acquaintances and Udon Map readers. The other views is that many thousands of people have done this without trouble for years.

Perhaps it's all just corporate spin. Premier brands are not sold in spin free zones.

Malaysia Airlines plane missing with 239 on board

There are now reports 2 passengers were travelling on passports stolen in Thailand. I wonder if the real identity of the persons travelling on the stolen Austrian and Italian passports will ever be known? They might have been Mossad agents or something similar. I don't think the Chinese government w...

I was watching the former Australian fast bowler Jeff Thomson bowl on youtube yesterday. It was extraordinary watching him bowl at batsmen without helmets and modern protective gear. It was simply life threatening facing him. Viv Richards, arguably the greatest batsmen of his era, was apparently a r...

Crypto-currencies: The future is now

What's Mt Gox mean? Many more cyber criminals are trying to steal the funny money? I would expect some of them will succeed. More inconveniences to come. I imagine Mark Karpeles has more to worry about than bankruptcy. Some serious criminals might have lost their funny money thanks to him.

I see one cricket writer, David Sygall, in the Sydney Morning Herald wrote: "The Australian psyche is characterised by uncompromising toughness, determination and dignity. Those traits must no longer be confused with boorish and bullying behaviour. After another significant win by our national crick...

A Couple of weeks in The South West of Thailand.

Nice change from Nong Prajak. Did you have any problems with the coppers on such a long trip? If travelling that far, the odds of being stopped must increase. They probably want you to dip into your wallet rather than to share the kind of photos Zidane apparently enjoys.

The pack of dogs won although South Africa battled as hard as they always do. The dogs have gone from chumps to champs in just 2 series. It's a shame they aren't off to England shortly.

Wow Plumbers, Thailand must be a terrifying place for you. Time to leave? There are lots of farang who have a similar attitude to your ex girlfriend's son. Wrong looks or words can also cause a whole lot of trouble in London, Sydney ... I always felt reasonably safe in Thailand but then I was rarely...

Western criminal justice systems are also a bit of a joke. OJ had a very big smile after being acquitted.

Not too many bankers faced charges after taxpayers had to fork out trillions in the GFC. Very wealthy people are rarely convicted. Thaksin and Belusconi are rare exceptions.

New 600,000 baht house

Good on you Maaka. I wish I paid for a smaller house for my Mrs. Ours is too big and keeping it clean is a pain. A smaller house is also easier to maintain. I have put off some maintenance for years and now need to spend a fair bit doing it up. I think outside kitchens, if covered, are good in Thail...
