    Hello,
    I didn't quite understand the status system in forum :)
    tuk-tuk driver, motodop, backpaker, flashpacker etc.
    Is status depend on number of messages?

    Hi Vlad,

    Or should I say noodle lady? ;-)

    You're correct, the status titles are tied to the number of posts -- nothing more nothing less. Every now and then I change them, but at the moment they're as follows:

    newbie
    longtail driver
    backpacker
    motodop
    flashpacker
    noodle lady
    tourist
    tout
    hippy
    beach masseuse
    traveller
    tuk tuk driver
    adventurer
    som tam seller
    tour guide
    monk
    under-employed
    bored expat
    saddhu
    mahout

    I could tell you how many posts each requires, but that would take all the fun out of it :-)

    Hey Somtam

    I feel ripped off - I segued fom newbie to backpacker to traveller and am now earning my keep as a tuk tuk driver - sucking in all that carbon-monoxide for so many posts(isn't that a downgrade!!!) - how come I missed out on the fun stuff???? (i.e. noodle lady [love cooking food], hippy [love opposing the establishment], beach masseuse {love skin contact - but no fatties please).

    I think I am ready to step up to the role of (Da Da Da Dah - Da Da Da Dah!) ..."ADVENTURER"

    But feel free to continue to keep me in the dark regarding number of posts required.

    'There has been a bomb threat at Wat Pho and we offer free tour...

    adios

    Marian,

    Is that offer for the beach massage still good?

    As for me, I'm now selling made-to-order som tam near the corner at MBK. I try to warn the tourists, but they say they want it spicy, just like the Thais.

    I think you can tell from my posts on beer that I won't make a good monk. I'm looking forward to those grand levels ahead of under-employed and bored expat. Regards.

    Exacto

    I think to be a beach masseusse you need a beach! - no way my arms can stretch to MBK. I'm aiming for under-employed - bored expat sounds a tad colonially pompous.

    ciao

    Plus I can't see myself with dreads, ashes and wearing orange (wrong skin tone) - so not aiming for saddhu.

    Mahout...? Have you seen 'The Protector' Thai/Aust martial art movie starring Tony Jaa? Good stuff with lots of familiar scenery for an ex-Bangkok resident!

    háblele pronto
