Re: Japan To Help Improve Road Safety Across The Kingdom

a story from China. A city in Guandong had horrible un-disciplined traffic and the mayor had been harassing the police to do something about it with no results. He went to a meeting in HK on some other matter. When he returned he called in all the police and said. Good news. You have tried your best...

Re: Thai women second fattest in Asia

And yet it is not difficult to eat sensibly in Thailand. When I became less active I changed my diet--first only 2 meals a day--late b'fast at 10 or 11 and dinner at 6 pm--high protein, mod fat, low carb--lots of seafood and veggies. But as in many other things, the whole idea of making a change in ...

Re: Japan To Help Improve Road Safety Across The Kingdom

The Japanese are well-disciplined, courteous people with a high degree of sensitivity to other peoples comfort.

Re: Thais rank low again at English

I have told this story previously but it is worth repeating. I sat having lunch with 3 older gentlemen who are retired here. They were all irritated that so many Thai people who deal with the public speak such poor English. These gentlemen--two were Germans and one was Swedish did NOT expect Thai pe...

Re: Handwriting

When I was at University they had a survey about what we thought of the exam system. Ar that time there was no multiple choice, it was all essays. I replied that I thought that I was treated unfairly because of my poor handwriting. The body doing the survey wrote back to me thanking me and asked me ...
