Recommended Posts

don't forget the extra 500 THB for reporting a targetted individual.

A great example of evolution. Here is a motorcycle man living life to full on farangs who use him and like an animal's prey keeps him alive. Now coronavirus has altered his environment and habitat and the faring that was his 'prey' and kept him alive has disappeared suddenly. He has to change or evolve or die off. So he can move (probably not feasible), change to driving a taxi perhaps or get a job driving a bus or truck (if he has the right licences) or move into another field that doesn't require farangs like temple building.

And so coronavirus altered the environment and habitat of TVF posters. As they were forced to stay inside more often, they needed to exercise their fingers more to keep active, lest the ol' ticker give out. So they now found him to prey upon. Now they're able to get in the needed time pecking at their keyboards until sated with condescension.

... taking a swig each out of that same one bottle of Pla Ra sauce - will easily take anybody's mind off the problems around you!  

 

even cheaper, to simply cut out the middleman! 404.thumb.JPG.52b592961a0b7a82e8e397f9b2f38a98.JPG

He used to earn 400-500 baht a day.

Shouldn't that be per customer?

400-500 baht in Pattaya per day is a joke.

Nonsense, you can't survive by drinking bottles of Nam Plaa.

It would be interesting to know how people in Pattaya are managing to pay the school fees as many people were employed not only with Tourism but also businesses associated with Tourism.
