Re: Ask us about Thailand!

if you buy a Wii over here, it comes prechipped so you can play bootleg games, but it can't ever be updated, and you can't buy games from the online store, or you'll brick it.

hmm that sucks. does your house have experience with ordering stuff online? im a little fearsome of ordering stuff online to this address. would be nice i can have it shipped to a house that has made succesful orders before.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

i have a really simple question, might sound stupid or something but i want to ask.

Is the term 'farang' derogatory?

is it like a racist term for a white person? like how the word '******' is derogatory towards an african american?

Or is it just a word in Thai referring to a white person?

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

Farang doesn't just mean "white foreigner" it also the word for Guava which give the Thais who work in the tourist industry a lot of laughs as they do often see Farangs as low-hanging fruit to be picked.
