Plagiarism

I don't mind if people copy my images - but please credit me appropriately. This is one of the reasons why my recent posts are lacking in images. It is actually an outrageous practice, and most of the image thieves are based in eastern Europe or Russia.

Credit me with the images and place a link to my blog and I have no problem.

Blatant Racism In Soi Cowboy LOL

I popped into an infamous BJ bar in Soi Cowboy the other night to see the owner who I happen to know ( really ).

After a few beers I had to go to the toilet which is situated at the rear of the bar. These toilets are for customers and also acts as a changing room and toilets for the staff.

I was stood at the urinal feeling much better for relieving myself of 5 bottles of Singha beer when one of the girls from the bar rushed in with her hand to her mouth. I thought she was going to vomit, but no - she just went over to the wash basin and spat something into it.

I asked if she was alright and she replied yes, took a swig from a bottle of Listerine swilled it around her mouth and spat that out as well.

 I said,'What happened, are you sick'. She replied, in broken english. words to the effect that it was farang sperm and she didn't like it. I said, ''Why didn't you swallow it", and she replied words to the effect of "I not swallow farang sperm, only swallow Thai sperm, Thai sperm is ok and is better".

Racism or what ?

The UK Thinks Its Bad,,,,,

I keep reading reports in the UK newspapers that people are fed up of going into shops in Britain staffed by foreigners and having trouble communicating with them. I had a similar experience here in Thailand the other day. No, it wasn't that a Thai couldn't speak English which seems to annoy many westerners who come here. This is Thailand for heavens sake, people here speak Thai. Or so I thought.....

So what happened was that my Thai girlfriend and I went into two seperate restaurants in Ban Phe on the way to Koh Samet. We sat down, and as usual my girlfriend wanted to discuss with the staff what was on the menu etc etc. The trouble is that none of the staff could speak Thai ( or English ). It soon became obvious that they were all foreigners probably from Cambodia or Burma. They had to get a street vendor in from the road to translate !

So the UK isn't the only place where communication between the indigenous population and shop workers is frustrating. Message to Brits stop whining LOL
