It’s supposed to be 3 liters of draft beer and if you look at the outer tube that is actually the case.But then they put an additional smaller tube with ice inside that takes off at least 20-30% of the space.So you don’t get 3 liters but less than 2.5 liters.I didn’t even start complaining with the manager – next time I will just order 3 jugs instead. Well it’s really fraud when you are given the wrong change in the restaurant, bar or even at the 7-Eleven by purpose.Thai women, if you meet the right one anyway, can be gorgeous girlfriends and devoted wives, but you have to go into it all with your eyes wide open and your hand firmly on your wallet.
It’s just that I would think twice about meeting another bar girl and trying to make a relationship out of it.
So, there I was on holiday in Thailand for two weeks in December two years ago. I had no idea I was being played for a fool by this gorgeous girl. Of course I planned to come back to Thailand, at some point, so it wasn’t actually that hard to leave. I take it slowly to build up trust, and make sure that it ‘feels’ right.
I’d met a gorgeous Thai girl previously on an Internet Dating site, and we had arranged to meet up in Phuket. I learnt a lot about Thailand, Thai culture and about the new love of my life, my georgous Thai girl. As soon as they mention needing money for something… The art to Internet dating Thai style is being able to recognize the truth from the lies. and I honestly think the latest lady I’ve been chatting to is a good, honest, hard-working thai girl.
At the end of the two weeks, I was sad to have left my Thai lady, but, the doubt has just continued to grow in my mind. (I personally don’t think that that’s too much of a an age gap, but I know some who do.) I’m from Sydney, she’s from ‘wheretheheckaburi’. I just don’t know what to think about this Thai girl, she’s made me kinda crazy! ’ After a few weeks back at work, and getting on with hundrum life back home, of course the pull to return got stronger. She had medical bills to pay for (female problems, I didn’t ask). Her phone got stolen (I bought her a new one for 3000 B). She had cancer, she said, and she had to back to her village to see her, and take her money to pay for the doctor. So, I handed over a rather large sum of cash (I’m too embarrassed to reveal how much). Don’t rush into a relationship or marriage, and if something doesn’t feel ‘right’ trust your instincts.
I really want to get back to Phuket to see her again, and see if that spark was real. Needing money for this and that is a big red flag for me now, so as soon as I hear that I tend to think she’s just after one thing.
I’d never been to Thailand before, so I was happy to go and meet her and do some exploring in a new country. I tried to impress her with my knowledge of Thai culture and by learning to speak a bit of Thai. Now, I just tell them I’ve got no money, right from the start. She’s gorgeous too, and hasn’t mentioned money once.
