Well its good to see your 1st post is somewhat aggressive within 9 minutes of joining !! another troll just registered from elsewhere perhaps.
Well done you are the 1st to be put on ignore today and would hope others follow because this forum does not need people like you, there are other forums more suited, bye bye
The reply from all of you have been immense, I will try to fill you folks in more about me, this old geezer, so you can add more notes into my book. My Father is Malaysian Chinese and my Mum is Ethnic Australian. I am kind of like a cone of Caramel and Vanilla swirl you get at your McDonald's. However, I would not pass off as a "Farang" if i am in Thailand. I am male, 1.8 meters and 65kg, definitely not obese yet.
I do not have pots of gold to bring into retirement, only bags :-) , but i believe i have sufficient for the next 20 years at least with enough savings and 2 properties i can lease out for survival. I am not ambitious looking to create an empire business in Thailand but looking into what the land can provide to create something that can be associated with the community. E.g. would be something to do with good quality tea in the northern part of Thailand in remote areas of CM or CR where its locally grown but practically unkown to the world. Maybe looking into hiring less privilege children or down syndrome young adults in a small packaging or tea processing set up. I may also look into opening small classes to teach English or Mandarin to young children. I speak English and Chinese and a little of Bahasa malay. I like to explore more in the tribal community of the mountain region in the north. I am not a beach person but appreciate more hilly terrain, not too deep into the mountains but semi-city or near city where i can still have some civilisation.
My career had me stationed in Hong Kong for 1 year, Shanghai for 2 years, Malaysia for 6 years and Singapore for 8 years mainly, unfortunately not Thailand. With my many business travels and a few leisure trips to Thailand, i understand a little about Thailand, but sadly mostly associated with Bangkok mainly. I know some Thai words to get by and also love the food and the warmth of the people. Security in Thailand looks good enough for me, medical care seems world class to me but i will leave the political out unless it becomes unstable.
I know enough about the clubs and bar scenes in Thailand. Thai men and women's mentality can be a little different to where we come from. This is mainly, i believe, influence by their culture, values and upbringing. Also, many come from the rural areas into big cities like BKK and Phuket, friends and peers living together can also affect their behaviour and mindset. Thais from what i know are family centric people, hence family/friends socialising is important and regular. Booze is a problem though. However, i still feel overall Thai people are good people in nature. What are your thoughts?
Yes. Like so many things, the chat goes on in the background whilst the people faced with such choices have to make a decision, even if it does compromise their morals and ethics. I can remember this being discussed in the UK last year at an earlier stage of the Pandemic.
Total belief in an Ideal is only possible when the reality of a situation allows it. Sadly at times, someone may have to compromise their ideals. I can only hope that the medical professionals, real people, forced into such situations get effective and proper support to not only make the decision, but to deal with the residual aftereffects of their choices.
The Public Health Department have announced another 14,260 infections and 119 Covid-related deaths over the past 24 hours. 655 cases have been detected in Thai prisons.
