Thai School Run !

Those people in England who complain about the school run have nothing to complain about. Look at these Thai kids about to dice with death. The worst thing is that the authorites turn a blind eye to this sort of thing - it looks like an accident with very bad consequences waiting to happen.

Bar Girls - Fiction or Fact

Many visitors to Thailand encounter bar girls and share their experiences. Whether it is in a blog, website or actual hard copy.

When you look for hard copy there are some great books around that share experiences in great depth, much more depth than a blog. But are they fact or fiction? I would say they are a mixture of both, with a leaning towards fiction based on fact.

I have done a bit of reading and recommend the following books:

(No -I am not the author or in anyway associated with them !!)

But reading is not the same as doing. Despite the problems in Thailand (they exist all over the world) Bangkok is a great place to have fun and eat some great food. Whether you are single, gay, have a partner, or a group of you, there is a lot of fun to be had.

Right now the rainy season is starting. But rain in Bangkok need not stop you having fun as it would at a beach.  So come over - there are some cheap flights available !

But remember to bring enough money. No money no honey.

Maids - Extra Duties

I have been meaning to write about this for ages. I am lazy I suppose - not like the maids I have employed over the many years I have been living in Bangkok.

In my time here I have lived in 4 seperate condos in different parts of the city and in each one I have employed maids to do general cleaning and laundry ( not live in). I recruited them by word of mouth or from a small advertisement on the condominium notice board. Each maid, and there has been 6 of them in total, have been excellent. I paid them the going rate which over time has varied from 200 - 500 Baht.

They were aged between 18 years and 40 - nothing special to look at, just pleasant girls. All were punctual, dilligent and reliable. They had another thing in common as well - they were interested in extra activites - sex.

It started the same way with each maid. After a few visits and having got to know them a bit I told them I needed a massage and was going to a massage shop for an hour or two. They all told me not to go but give them the money and they would do it after they finished cleaning. I took them up on the offers and the massage from each of them soon expanded into sex.

3 were married ( or so they said ) the other 3 were single ( or so they said 5555 ). The extra duties they performed went on until I moved condo or they just moved away. Now what worries me is the question is it normal for a maid to be like this ?

What prompted me to write this is that my maid has just left......
