Welcoming Freshy…

Note : I’ve edited the entry with a photo… just to make it easier to understand what I was trying to write about 16/6/05

Having read the newspapers today and saw the picture of “Rub Nong” which means welcome freshy in English kind of disturb me. It’s the culture that Thailand’s Universities established in order to create unity for the newcomers and current students. I think that some of the activities are very inappropriate and morally wrong… Take a look at this pict for example.

This picture was taken last year at one of the private university. It’s one of the activities aiming to “create the bond between Freshies and current students at university”

I never had a chance to join “Rub Nong” activity in Thailand as I spend most of my student years in Australia, Maybe… elaboration of Rub Nong might be a good way out and replace with “University’s Orientation” instead

Motorbike Taxi

I just read the recent post by Teazor, about motorbike taxi, I can totally related to it. Despite being a local in Bangkok, but I never ever had to ride the motorbike taxi before in my life until I started working. Call me mommy’s girl but my mom is totally opposed the idea of me on the bike.

Last week was the first time that I took the motorbike taxi from Sukhumvit to Silom. I had to take the tape back for the satelite feeding (that’s for the Soccer match between Japan and Korea DPR) I constantly told the driver to go slow, although he nodded but we made it to my office in the record time, and I swear.. my heart nearly stopped beating!
By the time I was asking for the price, I gave him 20 bahts more than what he asked, considering that I was safe after he tried to pass over the petrol Truck.

Thailand is always amazing, but for me, Bangkok is much more ….
Super Amazing Bangkok.

    I dont read Thairath and noone who views this post will, after today, but I’d love to know what is “very inappropriate and morally wrong” and also what “Rub Nong” entails because, simply, I don’t have a ****ing clue.

    If I’m not wrong, the ‘very impropriate act’ refers to picture of female fresher, down on her knees, made to eat banana held by a male senior, who stood up straight and held the fruit at his crotch.

    Another variation is the girl putting condom on a banana held in similar position, while being blindfolded.

    Chris: sounds like something you see in every juvenile USA movie, or on MTVs spring break.

    Sigh: they may be well trained, but they have good teachers: pathetic yanks.
