Thai friends can be absolutely amazing and incredibly generous. Last night we stayed at 137 Pillars House in Chiang Mai, a surprise gift from a dear friend to celebrate my 60th birthday. She flew up from Bangkok today to spend the rest of the weekend with us. I'm a very lucky guy and I have great Thai friends. That is a very good thing.

Thanks for that Kev, it was for me the perfect way to celebrate 60. A romantic night with my wife in the most amazing hotel I have stayed in and then a night with our best friend at her home. There are just no words to describe how moved I was.

In our search for an electrician to finish off a couple of recent projects around the house, we came across the usual cowboys who clearly weren’t up to the job. On the recommendation of a friend, we contacted a teacher at a local technical college.


He came by and we showed him what we wanted. He was very polite while taking copious measurements and notes. About a week later he emailed a very detailed quote with all materials itemized. It all looked good so we said, okay.


He could only work on the weekend, when my wife isn’t home, so I was tasked with supervising. He pulled up with three assistants and I watched as they unpacked their gear. Their level of organization was impressive. They brought everything they could possibly need, even down to their own food and water. It didn’t take long for me to realize, my best move was to simply get out of their way.


They worked constantly for two days and the only break they took was at lunch around 1 o’clock. They worked until well after six last night finishing up a couple of freebies they agreed to. It was one of the most enjoyable worker experiences I have had and definitely ranks as a “good thing” in my book.

I love ThaiVisa. I posted something recently in the much maligned General Forum and was humbled by the response. In a matter of two days it accumulated over 7600 views, eight pages of comments and the opening post itself received 58 likes. One guy signed up just so he could comment and one CR member contributed no less than eight heart warming comments in an effort to make me feel at home.


ThaiVisa is a very good thing.

Well one of the Good Things I like is that I can associate with persons like VF with no preconceptions. Another Good Thing is that landing in Chiang Rai after traveling from the Middle East, puts a smile on my face every time. The Chiang Rai photos thread keeps me smiling & reminiscing when I'm away from my home. Cheers Garry :)
