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: 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.
