Re: Getting a Thai Girlfriend

In a turn of events said to be nothing less than spectacular, I have landed myself a Thai Girlfriend. We met in the early hours of the Night Market. Me and her have been dating for 3 weeks now and it is looking up. Is it not fantastic, you all? Old i may be, but i still got some moves left to show f...

Re: Interfering Farangs

As i have said many times before, state your point resolutely and conclusively, and certainly farang or no farang you will make yourself understood. The important point being dialogue. Without it everything will be difficult, and at times it really is, because not everyone can speak thai. Often time...

Why did you settle in Hua Hin?

You know, coming to Hua Hin was a pretty hard decision for me to make. But i did it, and i am proud of it. Hua Hin made a pretty strong and lasting impression on me. Not so much for its beaches yet the whole town is full of atmosphere. The place lives up to its name. Let me tell you that! I just fel...

Re: When was your first visit to Hua Hin?

I once did a passerby in the late 90's, alas nothing ever became of it.

Re: How can Thailand curb its appalling road fatality rate?

I think whats needed to be done is to get stricter on the driver's permit. And why not drive cars that are eco-efficient? So many times i see somebody take a dangerous U-turn while not really looking to the side or behind them. As if through thin air or magic, or something like that would pull them ...

Re: Getting a Thai Girlfriend

You know, I did pick up the trend ever so slightly during my most recently stay in Bangkok. Skimpy, with a touch of class. I guess it cannot be helped. It's so hot here during the day with the consequence that whatever you wear is going to sweat through after just about fifteen minutes out of the sh...

Re: Do you ever feel not farang?

There certainly are moments i feel more farang than others. The problem being not the feeling of being farang in and on itself... What i mean by this is that whatever you do, or wherever you go outside the wider state areas, you are going to be immediately looked funny at. It cannot be helped. Even ...

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

The real reason is probably because of the way the whole Thai nation suddenly and quickly industrialized, at the onset of a burgeoning tourist influx. Not ideal and not a primary issue.

Re: Getting a Thai Girlfriend

Well excuse my french, but I have truthfully never came across anything of similar order.
Yes, quite the opposite. If anything I would "buy" or win over her heart. But renting doesn't sound too bad.

Rent?

Re: Getting a Thai Girlfriend

What commitments?

I understand it this way: If you marry a woman you pay a certain dowry to the family of the bride.
But that's too far off in the future. I am not getting married, only for friendship, feelings and sex, at first. If things work out then maybe you get married again.
