What is a farang or fallang. Is it attributed to skin colour or just foreigners?

Both, foreigner with white skin, but the background of the use of "farang" is old and originates to medieval era, used for the ancient German tribe the "Franks". We are often told that the word originates from khmer and the old time French visitors, "farancee", and in general used about all Caucasians – I've also read that multiple times – but I was corrected not that long ago...🤨

 

As another poster said "Google is your friend", I will add that Wikipedia might be an even better friend, you can read about "farang" here...🙂

The party is over...:whistling:

Which is a good thing.

Stay the F at home.

 

Or experience Prayut's curfew in less than a week. And then everybody can complain about that as well.

I did. Very enlightening and to some extent takes away the derisive nature of the term, to be franc.😉

Exactly ! ... Thank you for posting these photos. These show exactly why officials have said what they have. Tourists, showing contempt for themselves and others by congregating during this time.

This photo mirrors/examples what I have seen on the island (I've had to go to IO for example ... took every possible precaution to stay safe (from myself and others). Look at the transmission rates and death rates in Europe and ask yourself how many of these people in the photos came her in the last 30 days from Europe?

You're just saying that because they know you better than you know yourself. It's called data mining. Not really very friendly.
