The week that was in Thailand news: Thais have a long fuse - but be careful when it's lit.

It was a retirement well before I had enough money to be comfortable. I have ridden half a million kilometers on motorbikes in Thailand wearing 99 baht Tesco Lotus helmets and flip flops for protection. 

Have we got the same mother?

The only regrets people have on their death beds are the things they didn't do.

Thailand is a safe place, provided one drives defensively and doesn't behave like an idiot in bars, or with a Thai significant other. IMHO the falangs that do behave like idiots get self-inflicted wounds.

Age is kicking in with the author. Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but dwelling on what could have been does not improve the present.  Misgivings about poor investments, or not not investing when the chance presented itself, aren't going to improve one's current situation, so let it stay where it is - in the past. The OP has had his adventures, more than most people, so he should be happy with that. Experiences he can share with his children (well some of them).  Far superior to anything I can share with my son. 

 

In my 36 years here, apart from disagreements with girlfriends/wife (one of whom did not have a fuse at all - she instantly exploded), I have only been involved in one really untoward event and that was when I had been here for less than a year. I was bottled by a drunk while eating fried rice in a food shop. I hadn't said anything to him and was minding my own business, but I later learned he thought I had pinched his seat when he went to the toilet. He had been watching a boxing match on tv and was getting drunk. After hitting me, he ran out of the shop, only to be chased down and beaten up by some other locals who knew me and saw what had happened.
