Maybe some member enjoy to watch this one.

Thank you for that. Watched all of it and what I noticed was that no one was fat, adults or children. Lucky days for them then as no US junk food to make them fat like KFC, McDonalds, dunkin donuts etc.

I'll have to watch this later when I get some time. I can almost pinpoint it to a month and year. Look on any dating website, most of the girls who are 30 and older are still slim and fit, especially if they are 40 and older.

All girls 25 and under it is getting close to 50% being overweight and many who are actually obese. I would say it was those formative years where they really got hit with the western trash fast food maybe starting in around 2008 or so that did it.

When I look back at childhood pics of the 80's in the States we were all rail skinny...out all day running around, riding bikes...McDonalds was a special treat we only got every once in a while. Sad.

Thank you for sharing this; I'm grateful for the video and the look back. To those of you reading this entire conversation who are Thai, do your best to ignore the comments of farang telling you what to eat or how to live. The nerve!

Interesting those too.   Do you have any videos from 1941 showing the Japanese arriving by any chance ?

The Japanese army helped to keep the British away from Thailand , the British who had colonised Thailand's neighbors and not treated them very well

Strange that because in Kanchanburi their are many graves of British and Dutch victims of the Japanese so they actually didn't stop the British at all, in fact they transported them here, you should go some time and educate yourself.  Meanwhile in case you couldn't understand I was asking about videos of the Japanese arriving in 1941 as there is some confliction as to how they were actually greeted by the Thai government at the time.

I did mean that the Japanese Army  stopped the British Army from taking over/colonising Thailand. 

   Some of the captured British soldiers were required to do a days work for their keep and to help build railway lines

Burma was under British rule , you must be thinking of Laos

No I was thinking of Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam. If the Brits has stayed in Vietnam in 1945 they might have totally defeated the communists with the help of the ex Japanese soldiers they used as well. Sadly they had to leave and the hated (by the locals) French went back to screw it all up again.

World War 2 was over , The Nazis and Japanese head been defeated after a long costly war. 

The after math bought many local conflicts , India/Pakistan , the two Koreas , Israel and the Palestinians and the whole middle East .

   The U.K needed to regroup back in the U.K and begin the rebuild , and let the locals sort out their differences themselves
