- +

This is probably one of the hottest months we have experienced and my electricity bill is rising rapidly with the temperature. In fact, I seem to have had a lot of expenses lately, especially paying for services of non-college workers. 

The salary of my relative’s caretaker, for example, has jumped to 14,000 baht per month, with free food and accommodation. For someone to come in and fix things around my house, I pay 500 baht for just an hour’s work.
