Set her up with a gas cooker on the balcony, problem solved as long as doors are closed of course.
Tonight they were at work

I asked my wife "what did you guys cook, it smells like bad oil"

She gets all pissy and says "we not cook"


Get home after picking them up
I'm trying to find where this smell coming from

Driving me nuts


Again pissy. "We not cook, the smell is old fish in the garbage"


Ohhhh......well then if it's old fish in the garbage not an issue.....and how stupid of me to be worried about the smell!!

Saturday's we do errands, shopping like a lot of couples

And Ao likes to do it with just us, a bit of alone time for us

We went out today but had no plans to eat
Then decided to go to our favorite Thai place for their lunch special

Ao go Tom Yum noodles but old style
It's a huge bowl

So halfway through I knew she wouldn't finish

I asked her if she will take it home for her Mom, are knowing the answer.....


She said no, and I said "I know why"

Her Mom would get mad we went without her


So I just said it's ridiculous
If we want to go grab lunch we can and that she's in her 60's and neeeds to stop acting like a baby at times.....

I didn’t say it in a contentious way
Kind of just pointing it out


I really do think Thais can be so god damn childish at times

Isn't the MIL already mad you went out without her? Shopping!

Surely some food might help placate her when you return home... 55

No I think it's sort of understood that Saturday errands is our alone time.....

But apparently eating noodles during that time is not allowed

How certain are you that you know why?

What about, Mum not dog, why give Mum leftovers. Whereas, buying her a takeaway meal, jai dee.

Although you may not get this with Quincy eating sushi. 555

I meant I knew the answer before I asked......

Transactional or a different culture??

I've always felt my wife and her family are Transactional
And I am not talking about with me, but with each other

Just seems anything done for each other, something is expected in return.....



I have done laundry 2 or 3x since my MIL has been here
She does my laundry and it's all folded and organized in my closet
She even goes back in and fixes my closet when I mess it up


It's much appreciated

So I wanted to buy her a gift

I told my wife and she immediately says I should buy her perfume

Sort of like, "yeah you should buy her something " even though I've paid for her trip here(well we did) and take her out often


Then when I gave her Mom the gift there was almost no response......which I know is common with Thais

But it's certainly different than my culture and what I am used to

I really couldn't look forward spending Christmas with Thais. They won't say thank you. And they have to match the value of your gift. 55

My wife DOES NOT match the value of my gift to her 5555


She actually does these days
We don't really go overboard on Xmas gifts

My wife, now, shows emotion/thanks when I give her gifts


But I remember I think my 3rd time going back to see her

All loved up dope....
I bought her a bunch of stuff in US(good shit too)

I was all excited to give her the presents and she basically opened them and then put them to the side.....5555

I was like WTF!

^ By the way

I am 100x worse than any Thai accepting a gift

I hate it
Because I am so god damn picky and I also can't fake things

If I don't like something I can't pretend I do


I've heard from basically every GF and my siblings they hate buying me any gift. 😀

That comes up as Hawaiian on my translate 5555
But you do understand the concept of Puu Yai right....Head of the Family or village

The main provider...the one who solves your problems/issues....

That is the role you have taken on..knowingly or not....

It is traditional for the husband to spend much more. But it is for a wife that raises your children. I guess in your case for cleaning the home.
