    Holy Crap!!!!!!! Family sends me money for a change

    Well this must be the first post where the Thai family has sent the Farang money for a change

    Ning and I have been sending about B20,000 per month. B10,000 was to live on and the other B10,000 was paying out a B$300,000 bank loan for extensions to their City home.

    Well they have sold their city house and have bought 2 Rai of land just down the road and are building a new home on the land.

    They have paid out the bank, and any other debts they had and sent me B100,000. Ning also has said we don't need to send any more money each month.

    What the hell is going on, maybe they know they will get it back as Sin Sot in April and was just a good will gesture.

    They plan on growing Chili's, Chickens + Eggs, Paw Paw and other vegetables,hopefully all goes well and they can finally look after themselves financially.

    One very happy farang sitting here!!!!

    That's a 1st!

    I'm happy to hear of this as it also my experience, in a similar way.
    Cheers, Rob.

    Great news Condo, i bet a feather could have knocked you over 55555

    Isn't it great to see a story that goes against all the normal...family only want money, sick Buffalo etc.

    Tell Ning she has a very good family, for her to be very proud.

    Every people all over the world are the same. Good family is a good family. Help each other but not take the advantage. Just now they have the money to share back and take care the grandchildren.

    You may be the "credit card" in future for the bumps. This is OK. Happy farang of course because you are a part of the family "Team"

    Well said!
    Thai's look at today, not too far into the future. Jo's folks are the same, sharing rice from this harvest with all the family. No money in the Bank, but a few cattle and pigs to trade & tide them over until next years rice crop.
    Cheers, Rob.

    Perhaps Dao can add something here , but I would be masking the happiness you should naturally feel about this.
    To act too euphoric may imply you didnt expect the family to 'help' back ( and thereby hint that you thought they wouldnt be honourable) , so I would be smiling and just saying , "Good for our baby " to Ning, and leaving it at that.
    The 20k youve been sending is a fair old burden on a young family with a new baby ( not speaking bad mate) so you deserve it.
    Lessening that monthly burden is the real bonus....

    But having said all that , it IS , without a doubt , the most amazing post Ive ever read ...555



    Hows the baby BTW?

    Don't worry I Chob I didn't act as surprised as in my post when talking to Ning about it, In the end I know that I'm going to eventually give it back slowly down the track. In fact I said to Ning that I didn't want it, and they should just keep it, but decided that it would be better if we keep it and it can be used as required by the family later on.

    Charlotte is growing fast, I'm trying not to be biased but she is about as perfect as you can get. She just eats, sleeps and plays. She hardly ever cries which makes it all easy. I also notice her changes when I get home from my 6 day away work roster.
