    Old but relevant today.


    Ways of Knowing if you have Thai-ness or not.


    26 Ways of Knowing if you have Thai-ness or not.

    1.You look four ways before crossing a one way street.

    2.You put salt and chilli on your fruit…

    3.A Thai cop stops you for a minor infraction and you automatically reach for your wallet..

    4.You think that a Honda City is a prestigious car.

    5.You can't remember the last time you wore a suit and tie.

    6.You think a polo shirt and jeans are formal attire.

    7.You aren't upset when the bar girl next to you eats beetles as a snack.

    8.You wake up in the morning and realize that you have nowhere to go and all day to get there.

    9.You think white wine goes well with Som Tam.

    10.You understand when your Thai wife says, My friend you or Same, same, but different.

    11.A Thai bar girl you've just met tells you that her mother is deathly ill and you just laugh and walk away.

    12.You realize that your Thai wife's loyalties belong to

    1st. Her parents.
    2nd. Her brats from a previous marriage to other Thai-scoundrels who deserted her.
    3rd. Any remaining blood relatives.
    4th. The family's buffalo.
    5th. The family's goldfish.
    and Last… "You"

    13.You consider your mobile phone a fashion accessory.

    14.You start wearing sandals everywhere…

    15.You start driving cars barefeet…

    16.You no longer enjoy Songkran. Instead, you stay home with a stack of videos.

    17.You become an expert on buying and selling gold jewellery.

    18.You believe that buying a gold chain is an acceptable courtship ritual, or at least a form of foreplay.

    19.Dogs become animals you'd rather kick than pet.

    20.You believe someone with an IQ of 90 is really intelligent…

    21.When driving a car you'll start using every free inch of the road.

    22.You flash your 4 indicator lights when driving straight on at an intersection.

    23.It's two days before payday, so you only go to bars with balloons strung outside…

    24.You realize that all the important words in Thai begin with the letter S. Sanuk (Fun), Saduak (convenient), Sabai (comfortable), Suay (pretty).

    25.You think a calendar more useful than a watch…

    26.You stand in the shadow of a telephone pole while waiting for a bus...

    IF You Can confess to any one of these "YOU HAVE THAI-NESS"

    5555555 .... that totally cracked me up ... great list!!!

    I have not gotten even close to some of those yet ... I guess I would have to actually live in country for a while, but I can relate to a number of them.

    My friend Rob and his Thai GF actually try to plan a trip out of country during Songkran, as they absolutely hate it.

    I wore socks and shoes on my first trip to Thailand ... Sandals with socks (I know DP, you don't have to say it!! 555) on the second trip ... and finally have made it to the "just sandals" stage. Never wore anything else on my last trip.

    But you will have to tell me .... what does "My friend you or Same, same, but different." actually mean??

    Too late for me.

    Re-entering the Kingdom last night I automatically went to the Thai ONLY queue. jing jing!
    Cheers, Rob.
    Lifes journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body, but to skid in sideways totally worn out, shouting: holy s.h.i.t what a ride!
