That's one of the big reasons I stay in Thailand.  I can eat anywhere I want and tell my wife to order anything she wants.  Rayong not Bangkok.  I can buy any phone I want.  I can tell my driver to drive anywhere I want.  I can stop at the local place and choose any company I want.  I live where I want, had the furniture I want custom made.  I make my own food and buy anything I want to accomplish that.  I cure corned beef and ham.  


One of the nicest things is doing what I want to do and that is priceless.  

Yes, you seem to be one lucky bugger,you can do anything you want.

The Us did have rationing during the  WW II and  the Corned Beef in a tine was given to US soldiers and was called Spam.   After the war- a standing order in our house was no food in a tin- ever.  Also, rice was forbidden as my father served in Asia  during  the war.

Corned beef and Spam are completely different products, from different animals.


Corned beef is made from BEEF.

Spam is S(piced) P(ork) And ha(M)


I quite like corned beef, but am not so keen on Spam.

Just bought 3 tins of Dewhursts Corned Beef, from Nookies in Nong Khai,

200 Thb, and have my daughter coming from UK in few months,so will be

able to have a bit stock, the only Corned Beef I can find in Chiang Mai are

from Australia in a round tin !, and some from France, both expensive,and

unknown,so did not want to chance it.


So will be making some Corned Beef,potato and onion pies,and Corned Beef

sandwiches in some nice bread with HP sauce and nice cup of Yorkshire tea.
