Hey MTT,"dead man walking" eh, just had a couple of Buddie,s round and we all could,nt stop laughing , we,ve never seen that one before but from some of the "specimens" on view up here it,s a very apt description,LOLOLOL.


Villager, surely you know the saying, 'He's dead but he don't know it'? Another way of saying 'too many zombies in this village' :D
My first year here on childrens day I donated 2000 baht to buy ice cream for the kids. I later found out they bough a 250baht container of ice cream and the rest went on beer. When a few months later they asked me to sponsor the childrens football team and buy them all a team shirt etc, they were annoyed that I said no. They made two mistakes, first they quoted a price per shirt that even I knew was about twice the real figure (my gf is a tailoress), secondly they assumed I had a short memory.
The real point is this, no matter what her motives might be, a Farang needs a wife or gf who protects her Farang's money. Refuses to let Thais cheat or swindle him. Refuses to let him be foolishly generous and set a precedent.

For some, getting married is volountary imprissonment, for others it is an absolute joy, each to their own I suppose.
Me? I am imprissoned in a world of happiness! 8-) :cheers:

That could be Rule number three: Assume nobody remembers. If they do, say something like,"Why you say that to me?" (especially if money is involved). But do not acknowledge the truth in what was remembered.

Marriage is a life sentence of love and devotion, if you cannot live with that, don 't do it.
Things can go wrong as easily as they go right and the sexy person you have today maybe tomorrows mr. or mrs. fat.
Marry the person, not the immage, looks are always deceiving. :twisted: :cheers: :cheers:
