    I don't understand. Why are you telling us that? Are you trying to rent your wife's shop, and the rent is 7.500 a month?

    That is what I think as well. But a very strange way to phrase it.

    99.9% of the people are Thai.
    I am the only expat here.
    I benefit from paying the same price as the Thai's.
    Can you but a 620ml of Leo Beer served with ice and a glass, for 60 Bhat ?

    No the shop has been sold, I am just trying to give you some indication of what's available outside Pattaya.
    The same building would cost you 20,000 Bhat in Pattaya.

    When I first moved to Mae Jo, I was the only falang around. They would sound the falang alarm when I went to the local market. FALANG! FALANG! Now they know my name at the market and Mae Jo is full of falangs.

    I have to be careful showing my face when we buy anything expensive.
    Otherwise i get the Falang price.
    Lazada is one of the best places to shop.

    upon occasion perhaps the rest of the time it’s just stale brine you’ll find.

    Sounds delightful! Now you do realise that ice displaces liquids so how much of the 620mls is actually beer?
