And that is thanks to foreign tourism, FDI : foreigners setting up the vast manufacturing regions for exports. The foreign engineers who are responsible for the bridges, skytrains and subways that Thais are not capable of. Without all the foreign input above Thailand would be a basket country with only rice and girls for exports. A thank you is in order that will never be from these xenophobic people. 

 

I got paid and thanked for my work on the MRT, BTS, Central World Tower, Parragon, Terminal Old Airpot, New Airport, EGAT projects, etc...

 

You didn't?

Wow!  What a statement! I guess when you say foreign input - you mean the experts from the West? 

It seems the entire world will collapse if not for the West?

Thank God for the westerners, the entire world is breathing because of their generosity.

Well we all spoke about the outcome if it drops further. 

Today is just over 20 to the Australian dollar and just under 40 to the UK £.

 

And to rub salt into the wounds,  it looks like having to show 800k at 90 days reporting is next..

Retirement extensions.

Staying home would be the best?

Isn't that a rather xenophobic statement ?
