    vermin

    Hi all,
    I have been coming to Phuket for about 11 years, and having just returned from karon I have noticed a lot more rats this year, and they don't seem scared of the humans, as any one else noticed this or is it just me just noticing them then looking for them all the time

    Bangkok rats seem to treat all around with disdain......seemingly knowing that city rats will never be on the menu.

    People have got access to more money these days, not so bothered about catching every rat they see for miles around unless they miss that special taste...555

    I have to eat the fuckers when we go visiting the Aunty out in the middle of nowhere Isaan. They taste better than frogs or ant eggs, c0ckroaches, crickets, snakes though.

    Taking a barfine back to the hotel in BKK last year. There's a bunch of rats on the footpath, some of them standing on their back legs looking at all the people walking by. They didn't give a sh1t 555. I pointed them out, barfine said 'dirty, Isaan lat better'.
