I have been living in Bangkok for a lot of the last 8 years. There are 3 things that continue to cause me stress and I don't think I will ever get used to them. I am sure I am not alone with these issues......I will list them for you - not in any particular order.

This is getting to be a regular thing for me, and this is the last time I am going to post about it. I am bored I have just heard of yet another Thai bar girl / farang marriage failing in exactly the same way as many have failed in the past.

It is not very often that I do this, in fact I don't remember doing it before, but I have to sing the praises of AIS 12 Call mobile telephone/ mobile data providers, and TOT broadband internet providers.

I am normally tolerant and understand that the electricity supply in Bangkok can be temperamental, but my patience is running thin now. We have had four power cuts and power surges in 2 days, one caused by an area of land sinking causing power lines and a sewer pipe to collapse, and three others for no apparent reason.

I do not have to do this internet dating game, but two good friends of mine who live in Bangkok swear by it. In fact one of them finds a new girl on the internet every week with no intention of a long term relationship.

It has been one pain of a week.

As of last week one of my desktop computers started to 'hang up'. First of all I just thought it was one of those things, but the 'hangs'  became more and more frequent. My first thoughts was a virus or malware, but I couldn't find any. My second thought was a conflict between two devices / programs, and my next thought was a heat problem / or that a piece or pieces of hardware were failing.
