Non-sense!

 

What new college graduate, whose starting salary is 15k baht or less has enough money to purchase land?

 

They don't even earn enough to live on.

 

 

 

 

Suppose daddy owned the hotel? - Give it up guys you have no idea how Yinn may have been funded

Yes, the number of Thai-bashing posts has decreased lately.  But there still are – many.  There are times I get so po'd at some of the posters here that I actually stop coming to the site.  Sometimes

this forum is full of haters.  there is a topic right full of comments about hating Songkran.    one of the first topics i started on this forum 8 years ago was asking about moving to T

I have dealt with more bile and vitriol on this little sub-forum than perhaps anyone else, yet I am still positive and still here.  I am the only one I have any control over and I control how I respon

Me as well, went back to visit 12/19 to my wife's rural village in Isaan.

 

No internet, no emails, no cell-phone calls for 2 weeks

 

Reminded me of the good ole days of growing up in the pre-internet/social media world, where you had to actually go visit friends if you wanted to hear from them.

What does my post have to do with justifying her VISA rejection?

 

Nothing, that's what.

 

2 issues if you can comprehend carefully. Earning 2,000,000 and the fact her visa was rejected.

 

 

with all the speculation etc. was the rejection reason ever stated by the poster ? maybe it would be better if the reason was given by the poster in order to avoid any issues and arguments.

No job ! therby would be considered "not sufficient reason to return" probably the most common reason for rejection and the main concern of ECO

definitely, doesn't matter if you have 2 million baht in your bank, it's actually a negative point for you as you are even less likely to return if you have a bunch of money in your account than if you don't

You want to compare white British girls in London with poor rural Thai girls in Roiet?

No one girl in Rayong - do not make the mistake of thinking all Thai are poor - far from it

It's amazing how easily these (I'm guessing older expats) are manipulated into some weird kind of online one sided romance where they play the white night to what they think is some young lady sitting behind a keyboard interacting with them.

 

Makes them feel special I think they never think to question why said lady would spend her entire life here trolling if she was this women of their online fantasies 🤣

And now a word from our sponsors :  

 

" feeling tired?   lonely?   need to take some time to just vent your frustrations?

Come to TV ,  where the real life dreams and nightmares of our readers will keep

you entertained .   Love, passion, grassy knolls, trolls,  where to buy cinnamon rolls,

gripes, snipes,  manipulations of every description,  is it fact?    or fiction ?

Tuning out now.    time for Netflix

I can well imagine how many advantages Thailand must have had in the early 80s, I was in Mallorca then, and many things were better then than they are now as well. I get it.

 

But some things have gotten better for sure, the fast internet has come, infrastructure has improved, many shopping giants like Central set up, better housing was built.

 

It's not ever a one-way street. Yes some of the old advantages have been lost. But other new advantages came instead.

 

Politics is a problem of course, it's a cesspool, everywhere. Part of the reason I left Germany was because the politics was so awful. We will never agree with all and every politician, and so many are criminals, there as in Germany and many other places.

 

But they could run things better, come on, stop the burning of fields, round up the rabid dogs, enforce traffic laws. It's not rocket science.

Come on friend.

 

Who would think fast internet is a benefit? When I lived in Arizona USA we had 5gb fiber. Not mb.

 

No, the infrastructure has not improved. More crowded than ever, public transportation more crowded than ever.

 

Many shopping giants? How many average Thai's do you see shopping there? Zero!

 

Thai people are up to their necks in personal debt, buying things to keep up with their neighbors "Face"

 

With the modernization/monetization of Thailand, we see the negative effects such as air pollution, overcrowding, lack of any serious world class industry, out of control corruption, etc.

 

What benefits do you see for the common working class Thai's, many who still cannot afford a house or car, and never will be able to?

I'll just make the mistake of thinking young Thai hotel receptionists are probably poor.

If they had 2M in the bank they'd consider themselves above a menial job.

See what I mean about the narcissist troll always making it about themselves? this whole thread has been hijacked by a troll and veered completely onto "her" which is exactly what she does in every thread.

Not if they wanted to travel, as Yinn has, and wanted to hang onto the nest egg, christ people go around the world doing menial tasks to pay for their next flight, where have you been all your life?

How many of your comments on this thread have been about 'her' without 'her' I doubt you would have any input here - maybe you are part of the problem?
