Re: Birth & Miscarriages

I was wondering what the birth facilities were like in the area? Do they allow for traditional or home birthing? If you go to the hospital do they automatically give an episiotomy and drug you up? Would going to Bangkok just be better? Additionally how do they deal with miscarriages and prevention ...

I'm not defending Thailand's discriminatory policy (because that is what it is) on this, just exploding a myth that dual pricing only happens in Thailand. I know what you mean, it's just a hot button issue as it blends in well with what we've been talking about on other threads. I was accused the o...

Oh yeah, like the Grand Palace in Bangkok : Foreigners pay 300 baht entrance fee, Thais go in for free. In Europe, I don't think that's even possible. If any government tried that, they'd get hit with discrimination lawsuits, no? Don't be too sure. Residents of Caerphilly County Borough here in Wal...

What winds me up is when the government shamelessly does it with a big sign saying "Foreigners must pay ten times more than locals". That disgusts me.

Re: Fashion do's & don'ts

Big knickers with low-rise jeans. Not a good back view when you're sat down & leaning forward! This is one example where Yanks have to be very careful with British English. Knickers I understand to be pants, per my ancestors words. In the above context it seems to be one's butt. However, knockers a...

Whilist I'm looking forward to seeing some of them again shortly, I really hope that a few have managed to find what they are looking for and have moved on. I'd be thrilled to learn that. There are some I have known here who have moved on, but mostly to Austria, Sweden, the UK and various other loc...

As has been said before, you should have proof of a return or onward journey if coming on a 30 day stamp. The Thai authorities don't require it if you've got a visa. It's always possible that checkin could get difficult and I have heard of people getting refused if they've got no visa. If you've go...

Given HRM's love of dogs, if the Royal household in HH gets wind of the worthy cause you are trying to promote, and so much as burps approval, Thai's will be breaking down your door to adopt. The trick is to bring it to their attention. Maybe some covert activity to find out who the local Thai palac...

Pete, you've brought back a repressed memory with your Milk Bones. I'd completely forgotten that I used to eat Spillers Shapes as a kid. Especially the charcoal ones (black) & the white ones. Are you British? Is this a weird anglo thing? Nope, a Yank. I was born into a household with two older sist...

I miss kidneys the way me mum did them. One thing not being from England I've always found funny the thing called "Spotted Dick." Never tried it, though. When Europeans talk about "kidneys", what kidneys.... beef, pork or chicken? I love a good dinner of liver and onions. Wandered into an English e...

Birth rates are on the decline in many other places as well. Japan for one for over a decade now, and I believe I read some European country is offering incentives for young couples to have kids....or, maybe it was Australia or New Zealand?

To this day I eat peanuts with the shell still on, and an occasional Milk Bone dog biscuit, when I can find them. They're great with a cold beer. Also, the Thai version of tapioca pudding is very popular here. Not really a pudding but a cold, sweet liquid with tapicoa floating in it. The Thai name e...
