Mukdahan Shoe Thief

mukdahan Shoe thief
My girls daughter Fa loves to play with anything of mine laying around. On a previous trip to the family farm I lost a pair of sunglasses to her because she just couldn’t live without them. This trip she seemed overly enamored with my shoes. Fortunately for me they were just a bit too big to be practical for her so she gave up on them after a while.

Although she did manage to steal something else…my heart!

    Talen, It seems the world over that little girls love to wear big shoes. Only the other day our little visitor was stomping around the house in high heels which didn’t go down to well with MTF bearing in mind how Thais feel about shoes.

    They can twist you around their little fingers! Love them. Whereas kids in the West overdose on sensation and accumulating possessions to the point that they become increasingly immune, and nothing is interesting any more. Boredom sets in as soon as you amputate the X-box controls from their hands. Thai kids retain that sense of interest and fascination way past the age you would find the average British kid slumped in front of the tv, moaning he’s got nothing to do.

    Have you noticed how rare it is to hear Thai children cry or complain, throw a tantrum…

      Very true words. On the family farm last month all the neighborhood kids came over to play. They had a ball for hours first playing in a mound of dirt and then playing with paper…making boats and planes.

      Oddly enough the cute one above in pictures does cry and throw tantrums….only when she can’t go walking , which she loves.

    Hi Talen:
    Great site you got here. Thank you for checking out my blog Expat Woman’s Guide to Living in Thailand (That Men Find Useful Too!)

    Have you settled in Thailand yet or are you still on holiday? I could not tell from your About Me page if you’re here as an expat yet. Your site is very well done!

      Thanks for the kind words Amy :)

      I am not an expat quite yet. I just came back from a 5 week trip to Thailand. I hope to make the move in the next year and finally become an expat.
