    Felang is a term commonly used by many. Seems folks here are nit picking, missing the point of Oh ohs post above. Good post Oh oh.
    Your "bedsit" appeals to me and would likely appeal to others as well.
    Different strokes for different folks.

    Yep.

    Transliterations are by their nature approximations.

    Having said that, 'Thong Lo' is a comical way to spell 'Tonglor'... but 'Felang' is close enough.

    Some idiot westerners swear that you have to live outside of Bangkok to be in 'the real Thailand'. In my experience the term is used more often about Isaan than about Chiang Mai, but whatever...

    Having never met one I wouldn't know.The Chinese I had dealings with always presented me with small presents though.

    An act of religious origins or possibly from the "paying tributes" days.

    SStSS (Selling Solutions to Simple Souls) 101, didn't cover religious etiquette.
