I got a very disturbing email from an acquaintance of mine yesterday basically he's crying in the email how he lost 3million baht to this Isaan girl who he had loved.
He had bought her land a farm and built a new house for his misses, he could only come here a month out of the year but he was doing everything he can to make sure she and her family were happy.
Actually one of my best mates married a lovely Isaan girl who is honest educated and has a great family.
However, visitors from Indonesia and other ASEAN countries are being charged for entry into Laos.
He lost his job about 6months ago and couldn't send any more money for the time being not that they needed much now anyway they had a profitable farm going.
He comes over last week and she tells him to basically piss off.
In addition, with the emergence of Thailand as a regional economic and tourism power, the food will continue to be influenced.
As a Thai food lover, all we can hope is that real Thai food will never begin loose its unique sweet, sour, bitter, salty and spicy taste in an effort to appeal to the masses.
