Thai Style, what is Thai Style, it just does not sound right to me to say Thailand Style.?



There are these small things that Thailand people do… nod the head, the sound of their voice, a girl walking on small high heels as her but sways back and forth. This is a small set of statue, at first, or now I guess I ignore these small identifiers saying,
- Hey Andy, you are in Thailand. -

I remember in Mexico, every day the people in Pie de La Cuesta watered the dirt with a water hose, or the smell of burning coconuts husk, this was Mexico to me.

This is Thai Style, a small friendly bunch of monks, walking in row; hmm I remember taking the same photo.



That was from this link, and a few years ago.

Sometimes, I need to open my eyes, and close them again, I need to remember where I am, then life is really good today, so I will keep them wide open, just in case I see a new world. You just learn to love these little people.

Video Panning for Tin in Thailand

Video Panning for Tin in Thailand
I took this video when I was in Ranong, Thailand of a women panning for Tin in the river near the Hot Springs. It was funny, as my friend is saying to me, that what she is panning for is more expensive than Gold. I am thinking, if this is the case, I am going to jump in and join her.

Ranong is about 10 hours by bus from Bangkok, a nice place to visit, and the Hot Springs is special. I went to Ranong to do a visa run, as I went into Burma or Myanmar for 10 minutes, came back and I have 30 more time to stay in Thailand.

We also went to the Island of Koh Chang, an Agro-tourism place, full of Germans, sort of a German Expat colony.

Number 1 Reason to Marry Thai Girl

Number 1 Reason to Marry Thai Girl
I have just returned from seven months in West Africa. I saw very few of the European flavor, in fact, almost everyone was black. I have been walking around in Thailand looking the many people of my tribe or a similar tribe….

White People have big noses, I mean huge, I keep looking in the mirror and checking…

Thailand people have small noses, the bridge of the nose is even recessed.

I have seen some children of the Farang a.k.a Foreigner marriages recently and was admiring the nose of the children. Darn, their noses are small and well formed, not these huge monstrous things of their father normally.

Want to get rid of that huge nose, what to have your offspring not genetically carry the trait, marry a Thai Girl. Note, you can also forget about having a son that is professional basketball player, sort of swimming against the current.

I hear rumors, if you marry a Thai or Filipino girl, you take them to Europe or USA, etc, all they do is sit and watch cartoons all day, just a rumor.

Ping Ping Thai Style

Ping Ping
I walked down stair, there was a staccato machine gun conversation going on between the housekeeper and the one reception girl. The housekeeper said blah blah blah PING PING blah blah.

This was like a bullet, peeng, peeeng, and I started to laugh, and mimicked the sound. Ping Ping

They all started to laugh, and the cleaning lady turns her head and says not look at her.

The exceptional and rare individual Em who speaks about 20 times better English than the normal Thailand reception person explained. Ping Ping is winking both your eyes, like the first time you see a pretty girl… Therefore, they are all showing me how to wink their eyes, not one eye, both eyes like a hand fan, in quick motion.

Thailand is subtle; flirting with Thailand girls is beyond my desire to learn. Nonetheless, I now will forever be watching the Thailand girls eyes, I am already too observant. This make me think of my well-used joke,
- My mind is like a bad neighborhood, you do not want to go in alone. -

I think if and when I ever understand 2 percent of what is happening in Thailand I will know too much. Thailand is like a private joke and you are involved in the joke, however they will never tell you or allow you to understand.

Ping Ping: Rapidly winking both eyes fast. Maybe the look you give and exceptionally beautiful girl the first time you see her.

See: The Thunderbolt in Italian Culture for further cross cultural reference, as in to be struck by the thunderbolt.
