    Heads Up ... October 13th, 2017 is our public holiday.

    Just got informed that ...

    Please be advised that October 13th, 2017 is our public holiday TODAY (The Passing of H.M. the Late King Bhumibol Adulyadej).
    Consequently, The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET),
    The Market for Alternative Investment (MAI), The Thailand Futures Exchange (TFEX)
    will be closed on this coming
    Friday.

    So, I assume Government Offices and maybe some Bank Branches are closed also?
    Perspective is everything ... it's the difference between going through an ordeal or going through an adventure..

    Perhaps they have a lengthy period of abstinence planned for the funeral period?
    Wont affect me as I’ve almost stopped drinking.
    Unless it’s very, very hot and I succumb to the charms of Magners Original Cider.

    OK ... without hearing their accents and viewing their usual superb dress attire ... what gave them away as being umm, err, cough ... 'Aussies'.

    Was it their collective bronzed Adonis statuesque figures?

    Their clear passion to maintain the recommended fluid intake (six glasses) for the day before 10am?

    Their inherent ability to pot a pool ball like Eddie Charlton?

    The bevy of Beauties pulled in like a male magnet they naturally are?



    Come on ... every soap dodger, secretly, deep down, wishes he, or she, lived on the wide Brown Land where there is a Bondi Beach,
    A decent Cricket Team (not from the sub-continent), where real men have fridges specifically dedicated to the storage and chilling
    of a decent Larger?

    Or to live in the Economic Miracle which has enjoyed .. '103 quarters without a recession'?The list is near endless

    The accents kinda gave em away although i could have guessed through the Singha wifebeater vests, shorts and flip flops.

    I remember watching TVAM, a breakfast TV show in the UK a few decades back , where theyd show loads of expats on Bondi Beach shouting Merry Xmas to their estranged families back in freezing cold Blighty in their bikinis and shorts and willing skin cancer on the bunch of wankers
