Yes.  And grab some wild herbs and ants, moths or bugs for protein. More common then people think.

Sounds good. Ant eggs are highly prized along with some bugs.

Odd story. I give it a suspected 4 panokios. He's in front the the Big C that doing (most likely) its usual business. The Big C where I'm at is not anywhere slow (normal level). Around town things may be slow in the bar/nightclub area but I doubt it at Big C. If many more MC taxi are competing at Big C it needs to be stated. As the story stands I only see someone looking for a handout. 

I talk to the guy picking up carts at Makro and he's sweating. He get 300 baht/day and doesn't complain. If we have cold water we give him some, but sometimes he thanks us but says he has water. He's hoping that they will move him inside next month. 

Smart workers should move out of the get rich tourist areas.

Motorcycle taxi rider scammed foreign tourists - now he has nothing, fixed it for him

Most of these motorcycle taxis have fixed prices for the popular destinations listed at the rank. They're not too extortionate given they have to compete with the baht buses. A few bad apples for sure though.

500-600 baht a day working in construction. Yeah, right. Probably no skills at all in this business.

500-600 is normal for daily pay construction job. If monthly is less a little.

I am sure Cambodians, Burmese etc don't get much more than 300baht a day.

 

I not know about Cambodians in Pattaya.. But I sure/know Burmese man in South get 500 daily construction. Sure.

 

If smart/good skills they get “per meter”. Is more than 500 daily.

eg. 120 baht  per sqm tile work, brick is 50 per sqm, cement rendering is 60 sqm, chiam 20 per meter 

 

Install window 300 per window, slide door 700, wood/plastic door 250-300.

 

300 a day will only be weak or fat woman not have skills.

In big cities and tourist resorts.

 

Upcountry more like 400-450 for a bricklayer / plasterer or painter.

 

Now, with people losing their jobs in the cities etc and returning home there are more workers available for construction which keeps wages down.
