    Integrating in Thailand

    Do you want or need to integrate here? According to Spin he is a fully integrated part of Thai society. I presume he therefore has Thai citizenship.

    Personally I spend nearly all of my time with Thais, both working and socialising. But Do I feel a spineless need to integrate? Hell no, I'm proud to be British and have a great home country to return to when the time comes to settle down into family/middle aged life. I'm simply here for a few years as part of life's journey, for new sights and experiences, thus I have no lacking sense of security that drives me to permanently force my way into a foreign society.

    When westerners here point at other westerners and say "you failed to integrate" or "you failed to make it here" I have to scratch my head and wonder who the failure is, the guy on an expatriate journey or the refugee who needed a second chance in life.

    Ahh the old dress up an attack on another poster as being a valid discussion routine.

    Its called starting a new thread when someone makes a bizarre off-topic comment which you wish to discuss further. Are they rationing new threads these days then?

    Hmmm, lots of people with nothing better to do on a Saturday night than silently complain about me not starting an interesting thread to entertain them.

    I'd love to sit here and try to come up with something that might satisfy the entire bunch of you in one hit, but I've got a date at RCA in 60 minutes from now which I'm afraid wins over for now.

    Until next time my darlings....

    Try not to kill her wont you. We dont want to see DD posting the thread on here with pictures of Thai police pointing at you or anything like that.

    this thread is precious.

    just been searching for the post where smeg threatened to hunt me down.

    found references to it here though not the post itself.

    I miss lily.

    remember that link you asked for in the other thread smeg, the one where you said you had never threatened to hunt me down??

    surprisingly enough.

    1. the search function is pretty good.

    2. you hadn't edited your post like you did to so many of them.
