Just trot on down to Orchard Plaza and the Thai "ladies" will give you an education you won't soon forget...

Maybe Golden Mile Complex, too. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Sorry, Patrick, as you haven't arrived yet, you wouldn't understand our jokes. I'm sorry I can't answer this question either, but I'm sure someone on this little red dot will be able to help. Be patient.

Thai Ladies

My Wife is Thai and I've been a few times so I know exactly what you mean but one Thai is enough for me!

She's good at English but no good at teaching I guess it's the same as teaching your other half how to drive! I'd like to be able to speak a few words and feel I need to make an effort after 3 years! 8)

It's quite obvious that your imagination works excellently though! :P

Learned my basic in Cambridge in Peninsula. But I must say to polish the pronounciation and conversation skills, plenty of going to Thailand was the one that does it. In your case Patrick, once you have the basic then you can just speak to your wife in the language and you should be fine... right? :)

Well, wiggling it from side to side like that is a start, but vertical and circular motion can also be pretty effective...
