There's a slight R-rated taste to this post; if you can't handle that, please don't keep reading. It's just slight...
I saw this sign advertising a new attraction opening up in a play area in one of Bangkok's shopping malls. At the same time, some really hot 20-something girls came walking past, and I couldn't help thinking: Yeah, me too.

Between all the seriousness of elections, I ran across an advertisement sign that made me smile from ear to ear. Us white folk teachers here laugh at mistakes made in English, but there is no real blame in it - English is not the Thais native tongue. It gets a little worse when it's an international school that advertises its courses as being taught in
", but still, it's not their native tongue. I will try to get a picture of that sign too, because it's deserving of my "Only in Thailand" album.
It does become very funny, when the typos are in Thai - and it is so obvious that even I can spot it. I can not write Thai to save my life, and I can only read it a little; don't ask me to read a newspaper for example.
Let's say, you're in the market for a house that costs about 1 to 2 million baht. Let's say, you can read Thai - hey, in
this part of the world, it's not an exception. Then you spot this sign...
For those of you who can not read Thai, this sign advertises a house that has "4 BERROOMS".
Would you go over and buy the house? They can't write their own language; why would they be able to build a good house?
This picture can also be found in my Only in Thailand
