    Burmese Videos

    Yannow, the term "Burmese" used to the refer to the county and people of Myanmar is kinda offensive to the 40% of the population who live here who are not of the dominant "Bamar" ethnic group.

    Calling Myanmar "Burma" is like calling Siam "Thailand"...

    @joko - thanks for the vid!

    @bb - well of course it's for the money! just like the way "flippers" go abroad - as maids, nannies, construction workers, even nurses, teachers, engineers & doctors! Like you've said in another thread - you've met flippers everywhere (I assume in Canada or the US?)

    @za - have you travelled outside of Th? If not, then I suggest that you do so. Improve your English, save up money, then travel to neighboring countries. You can do it by bus or bt train, and you can do it on a budget. Be a backpacker. Travel w/ friends, or travel alone. I've done it, and so have other SEAsian young ppl, who are usually on a budget too. Travelling outside your country will give you a better world view & understanding of issues. Just my 2 peso cents.

    Sorry for typos, am on fone

    @za - You live in Bkk. It would be easy to take the night train to Vientiane or the casino.bus (bus 99) to Aranyaprathet to cross to Cambodia. Then you could go to Battambang, Siem Reap or Phnom Penh by bus. Vientiane is safe for a female traveller -I've been there, and to Phnom Penh too. You just have to read up, read blogs, be safe & sensible, if/when you're travelling alone.

    Early this year I met a Thai lady, also a traveller. She works as a translator in Bkk and she spoke English well. We were roommates at a hostel in Kuala Lumpur. So there are Thsi ladies who travel too. The world is a big & beautiful place - so many places to explore!

    Thanks for the pics - very nice. But I would advise you not to dress like that if/when you travel alone. You'd be a magnet for harassment.

    Anyway, up to you, so they say. Good luck in all your endeavors. PM me if you do decide to travel - I could give you the names of the places I stayed in - they're not very pricey.

    P.S. In one of my travels, I met a fellow flipper solo traveller. We met at the Poi pet border + hr was going to Siem Reap, I was on my way to Battambang. We chatted a bit & took a selfie together. He only had a few days off, as did I. Was nice to see a fellow pinoy backpacker in that bus station, amidst the farang backpackers. There was also a backpacker couple from SG, if I recall.

    Sorry frm typos, on fone

    I've met Flippers where I live, male and female nurses, and sailors on the ship that brings Scandinavian timber on board over here for the building industry.

    No, it's really disconcerting. I have recurring nightmares of Les Dawson/ Roy Barraclough.

    All I can say is wow.

    I applaud your inhibition in that you, bld and Nicethaiza are the only ones on the forum bold enough to use your actual pictures as your avitar.

    How long had you been there before you would not get Delhi belly and or what would you say to someone who has never traveled Burma to keep from getting it?

    I'm also curious as to what you do there and why. I have met a few Burmese people and I have never found one that wanted to go back. These were people that work at the local Asian food market and a few others that worked in thrift stores.

    I ask them if after they save for retirement would they like to return and still none would say yes or even maybe. I know of may Laotians that have built homes back in Laos with plans of returning as the cost of living is much lower.
    Any insight as to why. I can only imagine it's not a good place for the average person or the political climate is distasteful ect.
