    From my days in the bar scene I remember almost every Brit I met bragged about that they had done the same before they moved here.

     

    Must be the most favourite pastime in the UK.

    Yeah, because all the dumb<deleted> credit card companies would just give out cards like candy and write the debt off after 5 yrs. The low-lives would move to Spain, Canary Islands and basically be in perma-exile from the UK while the they waited out the clock. 

     

    It was really degenerate hearing them brag about it.

    1. As people have become more saavy, the average financial payoff for a Thai girl looking to hit the jackpot by batting her baby blues has probably gotten smaller. Some women, those mainly motivated by mercenary considerations, decide that the smaller payoffs are not worth the effort.

     

    2. Demographics have shifted. Thai women are more in demand - both from Thai men and men from other Asian countries - than they were 20-30 years ago. Also, the economy has changed during this period, providing more educational and occupational opportunities to women, making many women feel less pressured to enter into a relationship for strictly financial reasons.

     

    3. The government has gone to great lengths to stigmatize Thailand's sex industry, and in the process made many Thais feel more self-conscious about being in a  relationship with a foreign man. Many Thais automatically assume that any Thai woman with a foreign man is a sex worker, and many Thai women feel that this loss of social status isn't worth whatever other benefits they receive from the relationship.

     

    4. In Jared Diamond's book, The Third Chimpanzee, he points out that most often people choose mating partners who resemble themselves, thus the default attraction for Thais is other Thais. Foreigners who imagine otherwise, are kidding themselves.

      

    Careful, the liberals who think idealistic farangs just get Thai women on the strengths of their 'progressive' values will get butt hurt.

    I'm too poor to be in Thailand I guess. No one I know back in the US has 20k unless they're working hard at their job and not messing around in Thailand like I am. :)  I love Thailand but if I had more money I would only be here 3-4 months out of the year (bad driving, pollution, noise affects life quality too much) and in which case just use tourist visas. Just my thoughts.

    I think any online fivvrr worker or other such bugman worth his salt won't give this 'professional' visa the time of day.

     

    Seriously you are going to spend so much money on a visa like that how will you even make ends meet trying to earn money online? Unless you are some international architect or top level consultant liking Thailand enough to partially relocate this is a milking scam. The Elite Visa is probably more their style.

    Hull is still doing tourist visas. Not sure where you heard they were not doing them.

    Info here: http://www.thaiconsul-uk.com/

    The embassy in London will also do a tourist visa in person or by post.

    This:

    And this now tells me the London Embassy is wanting applications 'in-hand' which means the same thing as in person.

    I was on Sukhumvit between Nana and Asoke a couple weekends ago while sober and was very surprised to see all the businesses lined with African and Arab men.  I mean, if I want to buy a 'dildo for her pleasure,' I'm going to buy it from an old fat Thai woman. These foreign male hawkers made no attempt to speak English or Thai to me as I passed.  And over half of the prostitutes lining the sidewalk and under bridges were from Africa.  What's a tourist straight off the plane with yellow fever to do?  It's not that I wouldn't fancy a bit of brown cinnamon or even a bit of dark chocolate; that's not it at all.  I just wonder what all the p. Lek's and p. Som's and their sick moms and buffalo are doing?  Where have they migrated because from what I can see, they are getting kicked off every corner.  I made it down by that dump Thermae, (just street level, mind you) and again was surprised.  African pimps everywhere!  I mean...a little self-respect, ladies.  No one is going to shake down an African hooker working freelance, except perhaps the Thai police, so what were all these dicks loitering around about?  Was there a two for one deal on Big Mac's I didn't know about?   It's a dog eat dog world out there, I guess.  Call me nostalgic for the 'old days' (like a couple years ago) when a man could slide down Sukhumvit get pigeon English cooed at him from ally ways.  Hell, I'd even take the ladyboy's returning over what is out there now. :)

    That's nasty, going back a decade or so the homo-africanus women were all down near the railway line sois and very much off sukhumvit road. I guess it's a sign that Bangkok's lady abyss is now at rock bottom.


  6. you know top charoen optician; have shops everywhere, blue and white branding always seem to have short skirted female staff sitting in the window and hardly ever any customers.

    i often wondered how they made any money and suspected they may be a front for money laundering.

    i was dating a thai lawyer last year and mentioned this to her, she said they had been investigated for exactly these activities but cleared.

    i still dont know how they make any money...

    Super-wealthy Thais basically patron many big businesses from the top-down. That's how a lot of these stores are too. They build the place and business as a gesture and it helps keep people paid in wages and raises the area's prosperity. They can afford to spend the money and waste it because they have even wealthier people by throwing money down the line into these projects.

    If you tried to do the same thing as a farang you would lose. You could not maintain the momentum like they can and get away with it.

    An apartment complex I was living in year had a Chinese owner who not only made money on the apartment block but had a massive hardware store he ran with his family helping. That's just a small scale example. They juggle it and basically one feeds the other. Over the decades and family line that's one way how they make the $$$$$$ to reach the top.

  7. Pretty sure they would prefer a person who speaks their own language

    If you want millions of chinese to visit your country you need to show flexibility or they will go elsewhere

    and how can they prove he was working? is taking photos now illegal?

    It's called a sting operation. The Thais are quite good at it when it suits them. In the USA it is called 'entrapment'

  8. Mrs told me this morning of a friend of here who left her I phone in one of the crash master vans yesterday.

    Was returned to her this morning by the driver.

    Must be that Thainess thing we see posted so often on here.

    I left my passport in a taxi once down in Phuket. It was Sonkhran and the middle of Patong area!

    The taxi man drove all the way back, took him about 8 hours through the traffic. He wouldn't accept any money either!!!

    Amazing Thailand! This was in 2001 IIRC.


  9. Told or ordered?

    It's so tricky to tell the difference nowadays.

    Told or ordered? What does it matter.?..I wouldn't do either..why should a lot of these street-shitters and pissers be especially welcomed? Government tells people to do this and that...but they are not there to experience the aftermath...I think these same ones to give recommendations and orders to be the same ones to experience what the ©hinese leave behind. Idiots...

    Shiting and pissing iin the street is hardly eclusive to the Chinese. There isn't a day goes by I don't see a local, mostly taxi drivers but others as well, pissing by the side of the road. Spitting in the street is also a common practice among the local population. It's a cultural thing in some parts of Asia. The real show though is in the UK on a Friday and Saturday night at club chucking out time. Pissing and shitting in the street with the added bonus of projectile vomiting. As I said - it's hardly an exclusive Chinese thing.

    Don't backstab your own people you!! Chinese practices as mentioned previously take place when sober oftentimes so don't go out of context!


  10. .The Germans started a war,and lost.

    No they didn't! They had land stolen from them at Versaille in 1919! They were sick of having their people killed by the poles (see the Bromberg Massacre) and decided to retake Eastern Prussia, their land in Bohemia and joined with Austria (who wanted to join them).

    It was Britain that declared war on Germany, NOT the other way around!

    Jews weren't the backbone either! I don't where you pulled that from, they were a tiny minority!
