Island Living... Not So Boring After All

 island_living1
By Anne O'Connell, Freelance Writer, Social Media Consultant and Author - www.anne-oconnell.com

Pinch me! I’m really living on an island. It’s been a dream of mine for a very long time. I actually grew up in a small province of Canada called Nova Scotia that is almost an island except for the swatch of land connecting it to New Brunswick. For the first half of my life I was never far away from the Atlantic Ocean… that, coupled with being a water sign, clinched it for me. I’ve always been drawn to any large body of water, only as I got older, it had to be in warmer climes.

Assumptions Of An Expat Woman In Thailand

By Samantha Pryor, www.bangkokcounsellor.com

After seeing my partner off in a taxi to Suvarnabhumi Airport, I was ‘lucky’ enough to get the next taxi to take me to work. It seemed to be very humid already, we hadn’t seen any rain the day before and I was feeling it. I was also struggling to walk after the previous day’s gym workout…

Part III. Northeastern Shared Dishes

A 5 part series of everything you ever need to know about Thai food from the four different regions of Thailand.

Thai cuisine is the national cuisine of Thailand. Thai cuisine places emphasis on lightly prepared dishes with strong aromatic components. Thai cuisine is known for being spicy. Balance, detail and variety are important to Thai cooking. Thai food is known for its balance of the four fundamental taste senses in each dish or the overall meal: sour, sweet, salty, and (optional) bitter; and it also can be quite hot (spicy).

Much Thai food is ‘shared’—a cultural practice that reflects the ‘communal’ or ‘family’ approach to eating. In this five-part series, we’ve separated the shared dishes into ‘regions’ in Thailand, and their respective most popular dishes. We’ve included the names in English, so as you try all the different varieties, you can identify your favorites, and ask for them by name. We’ve also included many names in Thai, so you can show it to your Thai friends or at restaurants.

Thailand’s food requires a little introduction. From Amsterdam to Sukhothai, its profusion of exotic tastes and scents make it amid the most coveted of worldwide cuisines. As a walk through Bangkok convincingly reminds, these tastes and scents are seemingly endless. However, whether it be juicy pieces of grilled pork on a stick or a fiery bowl of ‘Tom Yum’ soup, we all have to start somewhere.

Marriage Thai Style - Part Two

marriage_ceremony
In modern day Thailand where marriage is not necessarily seen as a life-long commitment, the original arguments for the sin sot are no longer valid.  Unfortunately the sin sot has become distorted and is today seen as a means of gaining face for the bride and her family with outrageous amounts sought - irrespective of the nationality of the groom.  Every Thai man still expects and accepts that a sin sot must be paid.

So in summary, in traditional Thailand, a young couple would have chaperoned dates, there would be no intimacy before marriage, there'd be a meeting of the families before marriage with frank discussion about future plans and at the time of marriage a sin sot would be paid.

Marriage Thai Style

marriage_ceremony
Many of our readers are foreigners who have decided to make Thailand and Pattaya their home, including marrying a Thai woman. In this two-part article Joe Lizzerd looks at the historical and cultural background of marriage in Thailand, in an effort to prepare foreigners for this experience, and share some of the secrets that make marriage to a Thai national a successful experience.

The divorce rate in Thailand is reported to have doubled since the late '90s, but at 20% it remains significantly lower than it is in most Western countries.  When it comes to married couples staying together, and presumably marital happiness, the Thais seem to be doing something right.
