Re: Veggie Burgers

I only shop at MV and VM and have bought them at one or the other. By the way--asking staff if they have then is NOT a good plan, they will say NO because if they said yes they would have to take you to where they are, and that is much too much work--You have to hustle for yourself.

Re: Expat survey puts Thailand fourth in Asean

I note that Cambodia is not listed. PP has a growing working ex-pat community, lots of Aussies there. People who have been in SE Asia many years say that is just like Thai was 30 years ago.

Re: Expat survey puts Thailand fourth in Asean

Definition please-- Is this for working or retirement? It has been my impression that expats who are working enjoy S;pore but choose not to retire there. HK the same, great for working, not for retirement.
