    I can't count all the times that Thais, both men and women, have been kind to me, and ask for nothing in return but a thank you. Many, way out in country villages just want someone they can practice their English with. Most of my experiences have been very simple ones and not even great stories, but it is the thought that counts. But, part of it might be that I'm friendly with strangers and have to force myself to smile. Otherwise I have a natural stern look that gives the impression that I'm grumpy, which I'm not.

    She said to my wife. "ask your dad if you can go to the beach"

    The new Lynx ad is a prime example. The Asian girl is driving the car, be "He's" driving the relationship...
    But subtly the female is mostly part or second generation Asian, and always speaks perfect English, having been born and raised in our culture.

    On another note, have you noticed all the second tier ad females wearing deep blue dresses now trying to imitate "Ford girl"?....
    ....Please stop trying, can't be done...555

    Advertisers are canny they don't follow the trends or fads they see an emerging market huge dollars at stake so things tend to be well thought out.(TV)
    As far as x culture relationships in Australia's case proximity and cheap air travel has opened us a new bridal supply and arguably a better choice (at face value)
    So I guess it will also have the trickle down effect and feed all industry's like the lawyers who will fix you up at the other end.55555

    But seriously if immigration is putting the fees up it tells you that the demand is too high and they want slow the flow and make a few of the less committed think twice.

    Earlier in the piece, I used to go to backyard gatherings of what can loosely be described as "Cross cultural pairings".
    Mostly it was much older guys marrying young things.
    Usually you would see the man (host) sitting with his family at a table while all the WAGs would be off dancing or doing their thing. Most of the men ignored their partners entirely. Some of them talked to me about their borderline psychotic episodes brought on by PTSD etc, but almost all of them had paid an immigration agent at least $10,000 in addition to immi fees and any other relocation costs. I remember one "Wife" who wasn't permitted to leave the family home by herself due to her husbands paranoia about someone hooking up with her.
    Looked like modern day bonded slavery to me. Course not everyone's like that.

    Obviously not to that degree....

    But, to be honest, I always feel weird at parties where it is all Thai/Farang couples.
    Everyone seemingly sizing each other up, I felt.

    As I said before......Most of us having that bit of insecurity that we need to prove "it's real".....Even to like minded couples.

    Some of the guys that couldn't have a conversation about anything besides Thailand.

    That was maybe the 1st 2 years Ao was in Vancouver.
    After she started working we got away from that crowd and strangely I felt better when it was mostly all Thais, both guys and girls.


    I actually do enjoy going out with other Farang/Thai couples as a double date
    For some reason keeping it sort of formal and limiting it to just 2 couples I never ran into the same issues as with the group parties

    Get any group of TGs and they will be sizing each other up - anywhere.

    Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!

    I remember being asked when I was switching living between the UK and OZ as a twenty something what was the main difference between the two

    my answer was always "In AUS people ask your name first and then what you do...as opposed to england where they ask what you do before your name....if they don't like the answer they don't bother with your name"....555

    With a straight face, I just told them I was a "cleaner" and worked for the Mafia. I get rid of body parts. Never had any problems after that. 555
