    Initial communication with BG/TG

    I was thinking about this the other day

    I was trying to remember my 1st trip and I met Ao and her English was minimal
    And maybe I am just thinking of the positives but I seem to remember that even with her limited English and my non-existent Thai we were able to get by

    I remember when 1st meeting her it was struggle but I was drinking and having fun
    She said I spoke probably more fast than anyone she ever met before

    Also I gues when she asked me where I was from I said "The United States " and she had never heard that term. She said it took a few days to realize I was from the US! 55555

    I do remember halfway through the night at the bar she just blurted out "I have baby"
    I was like, ok....

    But I had a little dictionary and we used that a lot
    We even went to Phi Phi Island for a few days and I really didn't think it was that hard to communicate to each other
    A lot of pointing and looking at the dictionary


    Two things I remember distinctively:

    We partied hard so would sleep until 2-3pm
    I remember her lying in bed saying "Huey Khao"
    I was like is she calling me a fat cow??? 5555

    Another time laying in bed late afternoon I kept hearing a knocking.
    I thought it was at the door
    I got up a few times then started cursing when no one was at the door

    She couldn't tell me it was a gecko but pointed and finally I realized and she was dying laughing

    But really I am amazed at how easy it seemed we were able to communicate without much language

    I remember going to wet dreams bar in old tiger the first time I went to Phuket. It was me the Batman and a stunning bg. We played jackpot and Kenya the whole night and must have bought her 20 lads. Her mate and a western guy drove by on a a motorbike and she talked to them for a couple of minutes. She came back and I asked her did she want me to bar fine her. She was all smiles and we went back to my room. Was staying in the Yorkshire Inn. After a quick fumble she jumped up and said she was leaving and asking for cash. I said I expected long time and she said no she was meeting her friend. Disgusted at being shafted I reluctantly gave her the cash.

    Next day I was bemused and felt I wasn’t cut out for the bar scene. Decided massages were the best and got one on bangla. Decided to go for the bj and gave her 2k. It was like all her birthdays came at once and said she was leaving as she made her quota.

    I had read about MTB on the forum and made my way that night. First time I met Nicke and he sent over a shot and that was the start of one of the closest friendships I have had. As the bar was closing up Nicke said to the cashier to take me to tai pan. Two girls came and when the cashier realized I wanted to take her she said she had to go to her room to get her toothbrush and new clothes. I thought it was an excuse and she was going to bolt. But she knocked on my door about 30 minutes later. She was a sweet girl but complained that it hurt when we had sex because she had small hoi. We stayed together for a couple of days and I remember when I saw her that night in the bar she came over and gave me a formal handshake. She brought me to a bbq at Nicke’s but there was no connection and I was regretting that I had taken her as there was another MTB girl that I liked. The other girl used to come with myself and Jimmy to the beach with Jimmys girlfriend. I was warned that I couldn’t go with her because it would look bad. I threw caution to the wind and asked her to come to my room after a day on the beach. We didn’t go to the bar that night as I thought there would be issues. She got a call from the cashier who said she didn’t mind and to come. I reckon was put her up to it as I spent a lot. Anyway, the new girl didn’t have a word of English. Well she did but refused to speak it until she was drunk. The lack of conversation was made up through joking and slapstick and was amazing. Never forget the trips we spent together. She had a boyfriend and it came to she had to make a choice.

    She contacted me early this year and the change was incredible. She works in a factory now and the most beautiful girl I had seen was now a chubby plain girl. She asked to meet but I declined. She wrote to me that it was the biggest regret she made by choosing the other guy.

    To finish up the story I was walking down bangla about a year ago and heard my name being screamed. I thought i was imagining it until straight in front of me was the original cashier. She has gone from a shy girl to full on silicone harlot. Went with her and the complaints were gone. Bizarre how things happen and girls change. I like the fact now that I can speak a fair bit of Thai and can entertain the girls in their native tongue albeit with Irish twang.

    My cuzz is married to a Thai girl has been for over 30 years. She originally came to Australia to see her sister and two weeks before flying back to LOS married my cuzz, they only knew each other a few weeks before. Back then if you get married you get to stay. She could not speak a word of English. I remember at the wedding people saying “this wont last” look at them now 30 years on with a hand full of grand kids.

    I guess if you really like the person you work it out.

    There is a thread on an Irish forum where a guy in his mid 50s who has just lost his mother and answered a personal ad in an Irish magazine from a 40 year old filipono girl. After a few texts and Skype calls he has fallen madly in love and asking for advice on bringing her over.

    He has fallen for it hook line and sinker and rationalizes that she is genuine because he spoke to her Dad. She was married with two kids and when someone said that there is no way she is divorced he said the marriage was annulled. When I offered advice of going to meet her he said he would be scared and has never left his hometown. It is obvious that it is all related to the death of his mum but is sad to see that at best he is wasting his time and stopping him meeting someone and at worse he will be scammed. He will not listen to advice and claims everyone is cynical and don’t know what true love is.

    Now I am not innocent and have got swept up in holiday romances but there is a difference physically meeting someone and forging a connection albeit fleeting and falling in love from a few texts.

    My first few tips I remember thinking that all BG's went to some sort of school to learn the same four questions.

    What your name?
    Where you from?
    How long you stay?
    You come Thailand before?

    My answer, South Africa would usually be met with a blank stare or USA? Or but why you white 5555

    I don't hit bars nearly as much anymore, but things do seemed to have improved quite a bit. Or perhaps I just tend to pick slightly older or more worldly wise women now. In a gentleman's club in Pattaya last trio a lady asked me where I was from, when I said SA she smiled and started to talk about her two years working in Joburg and trips to Cape Town. She even spoke a few Afrikaans phrases.

    Each to his own, and some seem to make it work
    I would not have the tolerance, patience, or any interest in trying to get by on the classic expat pidgin jibberish at a lower grammatical level than is understood by the average cat.
    Worse still when it becomes an ingrained habit of speaking with other expats, comedic caveman chat about their 'girl'

    Grok say "you want drink?"

    My advise is stay well clear of the Filipina girls.....55


    You cannot get divorced in the Philippines, annulment can take years like 10 years or so and it cost about 1/2 Mil paso so the run of the mill girls cannot do it. Best advise for anyone with a Filipino lass is get a certificate of no marriage. Makes things very easy then. Forged documents in the Phils is very easy but this is one that cannot be.

    You are never going to be able to discuss the political issues in the Middle East or how Brexit is going to impact Chinese exports. So either you don’t interact or have fun and banter with them. I never go down the usual questions and straight away i tell them I’m Thai. Completely disarms them and can get away with the basic Thai I know. If they start to waiver I sing them the only Thai song I know. I don’t play jackpot or other games as I can’t play connect 4 and I’m not 11. I always have great craic and usually have them in stitches which is all you can ask for.

    I never engage in crass conversations with ex pats about sex. Find it both uncomfortable and juvenile. Usually have great conversations with guys I meet and I learn a lot.

    Embarassing after one trip and I was in front of a judge and I uttered the now infamous phrase ‘ he was arrested on number 5’. Everyone looked at me like I was a mongo!

    I remember a night in the shed of shame in CM with my Austrian mate Harry.

    The girls just couldn’t understand how I was from Australia and Harry was from Austria. Then he talked with them in fluent Thai, told them in Austria they speak Thai but Australia we speak English............Man those girls were so confused......55

    Freudian slip when I misspelled randomer as ransomed. What makes it more ridiculous is that he told her that he was expecting money in his mother’s will. Talk about making you look like the golden goose. He later told the forum that it’s probably only going to be a grand.

    I told in my 1st TR how Jeab couldn't speak English...about 5 words.

    When we met in her Bar, i asked the BF and LT cost...she had to go get her girlfriend to come and tell me.

    After a couple of days of mime I went and bought a little interpreting machine, can't remember the cost but it allowed you to talk into it and then choose the language you wanted it spoken back in.

    her girlfriend was fluent in English, had a wealthy English boyfriend and she was a great fallback for us.

    When I bought her over on a visa, I had her tutored 3 days a week for 3 hrs each day, she was super keen to learn and did well.

    Last I saw her she was about 50/50 with speaking English and 70/30 understanding someone speaking it.

    Those 1st 5-6 weeks in Patts, it was by gesture and seemed we had a sort of mental telepathy, we just looked at each other and understood what the other was thinking.

    It made me feel like a teenager again the awkwardness of things 5555
    "Of course you love me darling, I handsome man 55555"

    That's a pretty ignorant statement by a usually intelligent guy

    It's pretty abhorrent, actually, that you would make fun of people like that who are trying to learn a new language
    Half those girls probably speak English now better than you will ever speak Thai

    Now, I do agree that it does no one any good to speak like that once someone starts to know the language better
    I made it a point not to use pidgen English and to write in a dramatically correct way when texting

    But people all over the world start off using pidgen English when they are learning and it's pretty shitty to make fun of them

    More than once in the first year or two Mrs M and I told people that we had met thru mutual friends rather than on-line as meeting someone on the Internet 15 or so years ago was widely viewed as somehow unsavory.

    Pretty funny that had I met her in a bar and said so that would have been more socially acceptable..

    Apparently online is now the most common way to meet your partner in the UK.. how times change...

    By the way, did they really have the internet back then? 55

    A Thai girl I know living in my home town in the UK has tried to fix me up with her friend in Bangkok. She gave me her Line details so that we could contact each other. We've been messaging each other for a couple of weeks now and although her English is poor and my Thai is zero, we communicate well together. Sometimes, if there is a sentence she is having difficulty with, she will write it in Thai and I use Google to translate. Not always successful 555.
    I am sure her English is improving already so she is benefiting from our text conversations. Sometimes she puts the words in the wrong order but after reading it a couple of times I can understand what she is trying to say. All good fun.
