    I think it is actually pretty sound decision
    Many people in all cultures attribute colors to moods

    The crematorium in Ao's village is pretty grim looking. I actually never thought about it until just now but when I saw it that is exactly what I thought

    Pink looks to be a kind of "Go to" colour for Buddhists.
    It's not one of the five colours or the combination of them.
    Thai Buddhism uses a Yellow base "The Middle path" as it's banner.
    And where the hell was Biggles.....?....when you needed him last Saturday....?

    I haven't got my head around Thainess at all. The Thainess I'm dealing with at the moment is getting Au to open up to me when there obviously is an issue. When I ask her what's the problem she just shakes her head.

    Is this a part of Thainess 555

    Just had a quick browse of Facebook before bed and saw some good examples of thainess.

    1) a guy pinning down a cat whilst blow torch it to death

    2) a guy sneaking up on an old lady sleeping rough outdoors and lumping her in the head with what appears to be a rock.

    And before anyone asks yes I've had a few drinks. Goodnight

    No...she is definitely communicating with you too much by shaking her head 555

    Those could be examples of Anywhereness if you choose to find only the bad and then highlight it as representing all... Sad post actually.

    Well I don't know about bright colours illustrating Thainess, some one once figured out that if you painted bridges (in any country) pink, people wouldn't jump off them. But things are highly decorated here which I like, the murals at our local temple are fantastic.

    To the BM whose wife/partner merely shakes her head rather than confront an issue, that is classic Thainess you could write a whole thread about that and no one would be able to offer a solution

    BOTH just have to learn to communicate in a way that is not natural from our upbringing and life experiences. That is hard especially as we get older mate. Next time I have an extended stay at home (BNE) we should catch up. I like a jamieson or two.

    Will be back in November and we will talk colours. Fon loves a bit of colour and I don't have any major dislikes other than sulking so I will leave it up to her. Worst case, I repaint, no problem. Another photo.....

    This house you're getting photo's of 1080, is this your girls or just a similar one? I thought you were waiting a bit. And paint is freaking expensive here.
