Just a happy camper expat. You've heard the story before - I came to Thailand for six months, and that was over 15 years ago. Fortunate to be in a comfortable place in life. I have travelled over a lot of Thailand and have settled in the Pattaya/Jomtien area.
Anyway as a side issue, Coke is nothing like it used to be fortunately. When you had a dirty penny (an old penny that was) we used to put it in a saucer of milk overnight. Like new in the morning. Coke these days does nothing like that.
Contrary to the biased and heavy-handed moderation on 'the other Forum' the ThaigerTalk moderators are a friendly lot and doing a great job. No 'holidays' or banning here for speaking your mind, controversy is even encouraged as it leads to interesting dialogues. The only NO-NO being insulting or aggressive to other members, as the community likes to keep it a civil, interesting and rewarding experience to visit the Forum.
