Hey Phil..............................how many Thai instructions are written on Marmite? Don't those British idiots realise some non English speaking people may want to eat it?
The world does not revolve around expat poms. As much as you may think it should.
Hello bean, been a long time.
On here. It's not bullshit, it's buffalo shit in Thailand.
I tend to make my sauces and stuff from scratch, I'm really not that keen on packets. Plus, cooking is something to do; there's not a gre at deal to do in the area I live so cooking helps me keep my sanity. If you are having problems working out how to use a jar or a packet of sauce do you really think you should be teaching?!

Let's see if I can explain this one:
My wall-mounted hot water system (you know the ones) stopped working so I told the front desk people and left them to fix it/replace it.
Came back several hours later and went to take a shower with my brand-spanking new heater (bigger than the last one, Yippee!)
Went to close the bathroom door and it wouldnae close, would it?
They'd installed the heater with the door pushed right back and now the door is trapped behind the heater. If you see what I mean.
There are few problems in life that cannot be solved with toast.
One of them, however, is opening a can of corned beef with that stupid key. This cannot easily be done at the best of times, and toast is of surprisingly little use in resolving the issue.
just make sure they put the drain at the highest point on your balcony or bathroom floor. if they haven't done this, get them to re-do it.
If you're a parent you'll get this.
My kid likes to have bed time stories as most kids do. We buy books for her, or she selects her own which have both thai and English in them. The Thai is always written perfectly but the English is terrible.
Usually they have a picture of a smug Thai person on the back of them that thinks he or she is doing a massive service to the minds of young Thais by expanding their knowledge of English at such an early age, by getting the Thai parents to read a language they don't understand properly to their children.
I just don't understand why anyone or any publishing company would go to great lengths of writing, illustrating, publish and selling a book without having the English checked first.
We aren't just talking about little mistakes, but written words that make no sense at all! My daughter often selects books that look nice, i often have to make up a story to go with the pictures because it's that bad!
Those that want to read whatever they can want all freedoms, but have to understand they can have freedom, but it must be within the law.

Not only is it poor English, it either
(a)makes no sense
(b) suggests they usually have their backs turned, ignoring people
(c) suggests they are literally spinning around in a bizarre effort to please
(d) is crudely suggestive.
