Re: Why do so many Thais look down on tourist / foreigners?

the real reason is probably because that's how humans are brought up and taught to believe. every country same, same.

Re: Getting a Thai Girlfriend

it's all universal basic stuff. if you treat each other with respect you'll get along. if neither is controlling you'll get along. if you talk about what's bothering you and resolve it you'll get along. etc. or as a friend told me, "every morning, when you wake up, the first thing to say to you...

Re: Do you ever feel not farang?

as long as you're identified as the same color as the people in whose country you are you'll probably feel accepted. a least that was my experience in France, England, Wales, Australia & New Zealand, until I opened my mouth and my accent gave me away.

Re: New Hua Hin Immigration and passport office

if this is any indication, 2yrs. ago they said they were moving. most likely, one day you'll go there and they will have moved and then you'll know when and maybe where they've moved to. I wouldn't count on an office at bluport. so far it's all talk.

Re: The scourge of Facebook

food is central to Thai life and everything takes place around it. every meal is photographed and launched into the digital abyss to be admired and "liked" by all and sundry. that's how they know they're still alive.
