    What Thailand made me do

    Familiarity, being constantly called falang etc etc can make you abhor certain things in life. Thailand made me love and hate several things more than I ever did before.

    Use of the word ''darling''. I now only associate this word with Thai whores who are planning to scam me with the sick buffalo routine. Dunno why, maybe if I met a nice chick who cured me of this I'd be ok, but I hate the word.

    Dislike junk food even more. A nation is slowly being destroyed of its charm by globalisation. Seeing the happy smiling Thais chuck greasy western junk food down their necks and the now visible results is a shame, as is the fact that they think they being 'hi-so inter' by being able to afford foreign food.

    Hate the British even more. Another shame is the sight of the typical British drunken foul mouthed shirtless lout who can't hold his beer in Thailand, groups of them, in some places you can close your eyes and be in Benidorm. I feel like going around apologising for them but that'd be stupid. These Brits were made for Spain on Easyjet and weren't ever supposed to afford the fare to Bangkok, that was the novelty of Thailand in the good old days before mobile phones and technology.

    Hate mobile phones like fury.
    Thai females made me like this, always on it, always checking it blah blah, it got boring. My phone is a phone, that's it. Then again the mentality of 'showing wealth' to prove status is the problem facing Thais a lot every day, it can be a job in itself. Many Thais in my view shouldn't be allowed mobile phones, or bluetooth headsets.


    Appreciate western food again.
    Here in the UK I strive to create decent Thai food but am struggling and pre-packaged jars of sauces are a total no-no. In Thailand I missed basic things. I saw a forum thread years ago asking where they could get baked beans for fucks sake. When western food is done right it is good, so a once a week treat at a British pub/restaurant was appreciated. Some places should have had a brick through the window from the Good Food guide for masquerading as an outlet for good British fare. One place I was fond of was Gregs Kitchen.

    Hate British black taxi drivers. Bangkok. Wanna taxi, hail one in minutes, it'll stop no problem. In London? The oh-so-famous black taxi driver who did the 'knowledge'?? Lucky if they'll stop for me whan I'm alone. It's always been a joke that these taxi drivers are fussy bastards but it's true. They are. Maybe it's my appearance but a friend of mine did say that in the black taxi handbook, single younger guys are the biggest risk fares. Well they can fuck off then. My local firm down here are Indians, and their service is excellent.


    Love the cinema again.
    When I was growing up in London the cinemas were a joke, litter strewn, gangs of loud youths and slurping of drinks. I last went in London in 2001 and that was an arty farty cinema with one screen so the riff raff was kept out. In Thailand they are immaculate, tidy, cheap and if you can put up with some inconsiderate bastard talking on their phone then it's a good deal. I used to go at least once a week, to kill a couple of hours or a date, on my own even. Now in my town there's a local cinema chain and despite the inflated cost I love it. Saw Jack Reacher recently. Trouble is, at those prices, you can't just up and leave the cinema if the film's shit.

    Thai woman, real Thai woman say Teerak, which is the Thai word for darling.

    Western women drive cars around checking their fucking phone. I've nearly had them crash into me as a result. It's a massive worldwide problem. They can barely drive a car as it is, but add a phone and they are downright dangerous.

    Pat its sad to see your regular theme, of Thailand upsetting you once again, i would advise you to seek help as if this carries on the UK helplines are going to have either a mass murderer on there hands or a maniac depressive committing harry.

    I meant both versions of 'darling'..I hate 'teerak' just as much.

    They've just bought out a fine for texting and social networking drivers after several accidents when the driver was seen texting/facebooking at the wheel.

    It's a bit like walking round your friends houses five times a day, knocking to ask if they had any new messages for you every time. Luckily I have no friends either.

    Considering all the oil, sugar , fat and salt that goes into Thai food , having foreign junk food is probably more healthier than having a Pad Thai .

    Alright darling. better than "Alright babe". Pat darling,the world changes,whether we like it or not.
    Women love their mobile phones in all cultures,it is so easy for them to take a picture of themselves and post the pic to 2000 friends every 10 minutes on Facebook.
    Taxis do not like Black fares,WHY because they are aggravation.I know Indian Taxi drivers who do not like Black fares. Agro,Nigerians hiss through their teeth,claim the fare should be cheaper,and the before the driver pulls off they "want a deal" 1/2 the fair of a normal punter.
    I talk to Young Brits,and Thailand is a hot dream destination for boys with mates.Expect a lot more,and more to visit.Why,because Benidorm ,Butlins,Tunisia and Egypt holidays are shite.WORD SPREADS

    Pat is probably the most adjustable person who should be still living here. A bit of Thai blood, relatives here and all and it remains a mystery why he had to abandon the country.

    Maybe his nights out with Smeg ruined him?

    Maybe the Smeg nights out had ruined me and I'd not realised, people like that have a gift for putting the 'curse' on you.

    I reluctantly went back to England, I say reluctant more because it was one of the worst winters in British history, but it was a matter of recouping some money and sorting out the booze problem. I've had a couple of pipe dreams about coming back long term in the last 2 years or so, but not for a lifestyle I had before. I don't want to teach or do nightclub work, I just want to lounge about.

    But, I'm planning a trip late August anyway. See you there.

    There is a thread on here somewhere about dumping your loser mates and not hanging around with pondlife for a more successful life. Gotta be tough when your surrounded by teflers and whoremongers though I guess.
