In the 1970s and '80s, I never saw bug carts outside of Issan. I presume the present nationwide infestation of bug carts is a result of the Issan diaspora.

The Guy went to a Restaurant not a Pharmacy!
Was meant to be tongue-in-cheek. Dimsum is obviously Chinese food.. Perhaps they were expanding their business plan to include pharma? :cover:

But, yeah, if I found a cockroach in my food gratis I'd be upset too..

Never yet found a cockroach in my Thai food, but I did once find a big green grub worm cooked along with my veggies.  :redflag:

Nothing wrong with cockroaches in Siam , the guy is over-sensitive . Possibly an illegal  migrant worker from Burma defaming his employer . Once taking a shower in a questionable massage institution Soi 11 I found them strolling through the building in numbers .

Many years ago I returned in the early hours to my room at the Nana to find a 'security' guard lying asleep across the corridor, while a rat the size of a cat finished off his supper.

Once I was in Playskool, in a short sleeve shirt, my arms resting on the back of the seating, and a rat ran along the seating into one sleeve and out the other, quite unexpected that was, the girls pretended they didn't see  it.
