How Many Local Farangs Do You Know Or Have Actually Met?

Recommended Posts

Is it pronounced Jubby or Jooby?

Doesn't matter to me Scea. comes out as Jubby, Jabby, Jooby, Jabberwocky and the JubbJubb Bird.

Sunny Delight pronouces it with an A ;-)

Something tells me that VF is sandbagging here.

Okay, perhaps I am trying to erase from my memory the fact that I have met a few other TV members. I think I did a pretty thorough job of qualifying my answer, however. My world does not necessarily revolve around TV and I don’t ask. ;)

My world doesn't revolve around TV either but this thread has made me think, and although a lot of us get a downer about TV occasionally, I'm glad I've met these people.

Every once in a while, Jubby, Jebby, Jabby, Jobby or who ever he is today, comes up with a short, sweet axiom like this. Fortunately not everyday, as we would miss his entertainment value. ;)

So Paul888, is this what you had in mind when you started this topic? :)

Yes, exactly. I started by wondering how big the farang community here was and then wondered how many of us had actually met each other in real life.

I may actually start playing Thai Visa bingo now and start hunting people down to tick them off the list :)

Don't need a Ticklist Paul888 .

They will all come out of the woodwork eventually.

I met a few in Bars , years ago. and only realised recently who they were on here.

One I only meet at Funerals.

and of course The Hash & Potluck will give you a head start.

If you take a look at the topic “Where do you live?” you will notice a poll. On that poll there are 71 votes but only 52 names who registered where they live. Click ‘view’ to see the names. Not all are living in the Rai full time but it gives you an idea of who is around.

To Jubby’s Hash and Potluck, I might add the Expat Club the first saturday of the month and Doi Chaang for coffee in the morning. I think Dave has a group of guys who play football as well, if that is your thing. School functions in town. Religious gatherings one would think. There are after all lots of missionaries, NGO types and teachers around.

There's ample opportunity for expats to socialise in and around Chiang Rai if they wish.

I'd just like to add a reminder that some of us, and I pass no judgement on the more sociable members here, occasionally prefer our own company.

Without suggesting that they're out and out hermits... sometimes, for various reasons, physical and mental, the thought of going out and joining a large group is a bit overwhelming.

So when arranging events and gatherings it may be a good idea not to assume that everyone who contributes regularly and in a friendly manner on the forum will feel like joining in the fun and games.

Fire away... B)

To be honest, I am very much a speak when spoken to guy with people I don't know.

I will always offer a nod and a smile to a fellow farang but I am very unlikely to open a conversation.

Just one of my many character flaws :) but I do have beautiful children even if I say so myself.

Indeed Sceadugenga,

I have met quite a few thaivisa members, and a lot more non-thaivisa members. It doesn't mean I socialise with them regularly or crave farang company.

I'm not good at large social gatherings myself. I do make the effort mainly because I think its good for my Children and wife to mix with people outside the village a bit more. Although most of us don't have a lot in common, being a wife of a farang or the children of a mixed relationship makes them have a bit more in common.

The Kids and wives seem to hit it off better than we do ;-)

Its probably only twice a month that I have farang company. Its suits me fine.

Not exactly the Social Animal or the farang Hub :)

Hey Paul, I have beautiful Children too, bring em along to the Hash or Pot Luck ; maybe they'll make Sweet Music together ;-)

The outside bet wins. I have met you all :D

Glad you posted 'Sunshine on a rainy Day' . I was worried about you. no late night, early morning contributions for a couple of days. You must be on the wagon, or have run out of pickled onions :D
