Re: New labels and tax to tackle Thailand's junk food problem

one advantage of night mkt food is that you can watch it being cooked and veto the addition of sugar. But this is a world wide problem, look at the ingrediants on prepared items, there is palm sugar in so many items

Re: Recognised paedophile bar owner

when i see a pedophile convicted even though the sentence may be light i feel good about it. Ihave been told by ex-cons and guards that there is a strong class system in prisons. The con men are the top, child abusers next to bottom and the pedophiles are the scum and are treated as such.

Re: GBP vs THB

markets are fearful when there is uncertainty, i think the forecast of a fall while the terms are uncertain, firming up when things clarify sounds like a logical scenario.

Re: The Beer Thread

one of the things that you have to accept here is that the people sellimg beer are not in the least bit interested in beer.
Iasked in a couple of bares whether they intended stocking the new Federbrau, no response, no interest in my question.
