  1. as a Farang in Thailand as long as you have relationships with Thais (whether family, friends, neighbors, working place etc.) and are not a Farang khee nok, you always do charity! That is the social system here; there are always thousands of people in need of money and thousands of charity organizations and they try to squeeze it out from those who they think have it! whether locals or foreigners. I know some rich local guys and to be rich is really expensive in Thailand!
  2. here I found a article about Kafae Chamot http://travel.mthai.com/blog/5607.html one cup 500 THB one kilo 100'000 THB
  3. oh yeah the coffee from the civet dung or also called Kopi Luwak http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kopi_Luwak actually I have seen this as well in Kanchanaburi. they call it Kafae Chamot Chamot is a different civet as stated above, a otter civet, in opposite to the smaller palm civet (in thai called eehen)
  4. ...yeah and gobbie and sayjann meet the woman of their nightmares every time they go into a bar!

  6. phoobao farang waow isaan dai yoo!
  7. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGI5vny9x4U but not mor lam...
  8. ชีวิตชีวา chiwit chiwaa is a adjectiv and means energetic, lively, full of energy. comes probably most close to what you wanted to say. However not knowing the context, it is difficult to recommend whole phrases
  9. used usually with a adjectiv so for example: chorb athayaasai dee khongkhun for the second sentence you could use the good old "chivit chivaa"
  10. if they want to put it as taxable expenses on the company record
  11. a couple of years ago, only the high end hotels charged joiner fee. I remember I once stayed at the Impiana direct at the beach and they charged 500 THB for joiner. now it seems that all middle to high end hotels charge. checked Thara Patong and Patong Beach Hotel, both 4 star hotels and both at beach road (thaweewong road) and they both charge 1500 THB (!) per night as joiner fee. i finally booked a 3 star resort: Tropica Bungalow http://www.tropica-bungalow.com/ even they charged joiner fee but only 500 THB, which I did not mind as then I only booked single room which comes 300 THB lower then double best of the hotel is it's location: at the beach road and only 50 meters from Bangla booked a 4 for 3 promotion at 3990 THB, so less then 1000 THB, which is quite a good price for a 3 star hotel, even during rainy season room was clean and large with balcony breakfast buffet good for this level and included they have a swimming pool, but not too big and chairs talked the reception into extending the internet fee for one time 100 THB to all 4 days (actually 5 with arrival and departure days) setback was that construction was going on (during the day); so it was a bit dusty and noisy in some areas of the resort so saved a bit on accommodation but spent then 25k in 4 nights on drinks and chicks
  12. nothing scary at all IMHO. just a average mor lam song, this time a funny one...
  13. Police officers took Phra Khru Sangkharak Thirayut Thirapanyo – soon to be using his old name, Thirayut Siripruek – to the district Buddhist office to be defrocked. district Buddhist office? never heard of something like that! so who are the superiors of a abbott?
  14. there are many upscale clubs, lounges and karaoke bars in town, which cater mainly to locals. expect usually worse english than in NEP and SC. so unless you speak thai... you also have to clarify the various prices and charges beforehand; otherwise you end up with some surprises on your bill
  15. do you mean อัธยาศัย a-tha-yaa-sai this characterize a personality with good manners and friendliness
  16. The Thai politicians will follow this example and always find some scapegoat who they can put in jails for their shortcomings in preventing floods and big impact of fires, tsunamis, huge accidents etc.
  17. then go to Safari world and open the window of the car! then you will have full visibility on tigers, lions etc.
  18. thanks for sharing this and indeed great photos! I have been myself in tham le khao kob a couple of years ago and also during rainy season. It was indeed a adventurous boat trip through the cave. we were the only visitors. the water level was so high, that we had had to lie flat in the boat and push the boat deeper into the water and at the same time forward to not get stuck. And we needed a lot of force for that after the trip they said, that the next days they might have to shut down as they might not get through anymore
  19. the emerald cave is called tham morakot have done this more than 10 years ago the second time I was in Trang was during rainy season and yes then you can forgot to do this!
  20. Munchie ain't American, if you did not get that yet!
  21. it will be very interesting to watch this case! Thai authorities will delay this case until nobody remembers!
  22. you have been in Trang and I have not seen your trip report! IMHO a province off the tourist mainstream, but has a lot to offer. have you been to Tham Morakot? have been there two times but many years ago. still no farangs there?
  23. are those centers in UK or in Phuket? at the same time you are running your daily Phuket trip reviews so you are there, right?
  24. Four Seasons is far out of the town, Munchie do you want to stay close to the nightlife? there are many hotels in this area! what price do you want to pay and what season are you going?
  25. there are catholic priests who are monks and walk around in a monks outfit!
