Women 'like that' are in all countries, just take a lot of searching and even more good luck to find her. They are in Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and all over the world.

 

Why I havent married her?

I mention a few times, I have a terminal condition and given 1 year to live, or less.

 

I understand! Thank you! Everything has a reason, regardless if it's right/wrong.  Besides, I implied marriage a right of passage.  In my opinion it's a term that serves a greater purpose for lawyers and statisticians; you're together and that will not change with documentation, ring, or sin sot.  Good luck, and remember, food is medicine too.  Throw everything at whatever your fighting...

Over the next weeks I will write about Philippines, how it is to live here as a former Thai expat.   With the never ending visa changes in Thailand, I hope this will be helpful now for some

I don't think he started this thread to attract hecklers. There is a bigger world than only Thailand, or indeed Asean.

Visa: After the first 29 days on arrival, go to immigration and apply for 1 months extension. You can apply next day after arrival if you want. 3.120 peso 60$   After first 59 days in c

I think the murder rate is higher in the PH than other countries in Asia. Correct me if I'm wrong. 

 

"In 2014, the Philippines has a murder rate of 9.84 per 100,000 people, with a number of 9,784 recorded cases. The country also has the highest rate of murder cases in Southeast Asia in 2013, with a rate of 8.8, followed by Thailand."

 

Numbers for 2016

Was 'war on drugs' in PH excluded or included in those numbers?

I don't doubt the numbers, local tv report it daily.

 

In SEA Myanmar ranked with 15,2 per 100.000 Most in SEA.

Thailand are unique and offer western quality and frills, that most of us are used to back home.

Philippines and Cambodia doesn't offer western quality same Thailand.

 

The BEEF/STEAKS in your supermarket photos looked pretty darned good.  I think my beef/steak eating experience there would be a considerable improvement, based on your photos!  Beef in Thailand is mostly either c**p local or very expensive U.S. or Aussie imports (except for Thai-French local beef).

Depends of the Chef 😀

Its like going to a restaurant here.

1 restaurant have 9 oz rib-eye on the menu for 1700 peso.

Another restaurant have identical rib-eye for 999 peso.

Guess which is best? The cheapest one.

A Chef can kill a good ribeye.

600+ baht for a half pound imported rib-eye would be a steal here... very hard and unlikely to find, I think.

 

Its tender, and I'm a regular guest.

The bad: only 1/2 inch in thickness here.

The good: no gristle so easy to chew.

You're KILLING me!!!!    :licklips:

 

Expat, do the locals there raise and slaughter their own beef for food. Or is pretty much everything you showed in your photos coming in as imports?

U.S. top sirloin boneless for the equiv of 525 baht or so per kilo... I'll take that!

And this pretty much looks like a frozen ribeye, and nicely marbled and thick cut... But I can't quite make out the local per kilo pricing on that.  Though the price for that particular steak would be about 740b equivalent.

You keep citing cheap as the reason.....its not the cost in Thailand that is making people move, its the feeling and treatment towards foreigners that is making people move.

I know a lot of people and not a single one moved because of being unloved, seriously what sort of idiot would do that? You think they are going to Cambodia for free hugs? Leaving because one is running out of money or health issues makes total sense.
