International Dating: My Story - Asian Women Love To Eat!

Tesco Lotus Thailand - Asian Women Love To Eat

I climbed into the front seat of the Mercedes taxi at the airport. Noi suggested it would be better for my long legs. She sat behind me on the 45-minute trip to Patong hotel. She threw her arms around my neck and kept them there all the way to the hotel I had booked before leaving England. She talked and asked questions, mainly about the flight. She asked if I was tired. I told her that surprisingly I felt fine. Noi spoke in a gentle soft voice. I found it soothing. It was so calming that I did feel sleepy but fought the jetlag weariness. There were moments of silence between our initial conversations. There was nothing awkward about that. It felt natural. When Noi was silent, she would gently massage my neck and shoulders. The trip in the taxi took about forty-five minutes and it gave me an opportunity to see Thailand from the ground for the first time.


The first part of the drive from the airport was along a featureless highway’ It looked recently constructed to serve as a spur road to and from the airport. The spur road joined up with the national highway connecting the island of Phuket to the mainland. Our taxi driver took a right turn and headed toward Phuket Town. This was a straight road and in the main consisted of a four lane highway, two in each direction. I was first of all struck by the green all around me. There were trees, orchards, bamboo and all varieties of green vegetation interspersed with palm trees. I knew I was not in England.


From time to time we would pass a roadside restaurant and store fronts. I had no idea what was sold from most of these stores owing to the Thai signage. Some, however, were obvious like the motorcycle repair shops with their frontage of parked machines awaiting some TLC. These repair shops always had a makeshift wooden rack outside displaying bottles of gasoline. The health and safety laws back in the UK would never allow gas to be stored in such a fashion. I soon learned that health and safety as I knew it in Europe was not in vogue in Thailand! This journey was my first taste of the incongruities of many Asian countries. Expensive SUVs and pick-up trucks hurtled along the highway that had tethered goats grazing in the median. The medians were also a sign that Thailand had its monsoon seasons as there were huge drainage ditches in the median. Water buffalo were also a common sight. The goats and water buffalo were reminders of old time Siam set in a concrete world filled with high-end Toyotas, Isuzus and Mitsubishis. The old and the new. A little like me and Noi!


I got to thinking about driving on these roads myself. There didn’t appear to be too many problems so I thought that I probably would end up driving sometime. It helped that the Thais drove on the left as we Brits do. It was then I noticed some of the local driving habits. Motorcycles in particular ignored the drive on the left rule. They often occupied the “wrong” side of the road as they drove towards you. This made sense to the rider, I guess, because it was the shortest route from A to B! I was also alive to the phenomenon of “might is right!” Traffic signals at intersections would turn to orange then red. Red means stop, right? Not in Thailand! A semi-truck or bus driver flashes his headlamps, turns on the 4-way flashers and sounds his ear-splitting air horn as his vehicle thunders through on red! I guess it’s another feature of SE Asia culture.


Despite these differences I was enjoying the ride and not only because I was finally with Noi. I sensed it was a new beginning; it was the prelude to a new life and a fresh start. I didn’t have a care in the world. Or, maybe one care! In my haste leaving England, I had forgotten to pack toothpaste, toothbrush and boxers (yes, I’m a boxer man). I mentioned this to Noi en route to the Patong hotel. “No problem” was an answer I got used to from Thai ladies. “Mai belie,” in Thai. She said something in Thai to our taxi driver and I thought no more of it until I saw a large parking lot and a huge sign on my left. The taxi turned left toward the lot.


The sign said “Tesco Lotus.” It bore the unmistakable livery of the UKs Tesco brand, a huge chain of supermarkets similar to Target in the States. It also sold the same kind of cheap but good value menswear as Target. The taxi parked on the lot and Noi and I went inside the huge air-conditioned store. She held my hand constantly. I began to sense why she did that. Despite my advancing years, I was the recipient of smiles from many of the attractive young ladies who worked in the store. I did my utmost to pretend that I had not noticed.


You may think I’m crazy when I say that I enjoy exploring stores like this in a strange land. I do enjoy it. It gives me a “feel” for the country and the people despite the ultra-modern setting. It is where two cultures collide. The old and the new. SE Asia and West. That was epitomized by the variety of food available in the food hall. There were traditional Thai dishes with rice of course. There were burgers, pizzas and fries! There was even a Dairy Queen!


The shopping for my essentials was done. Boxers, toothbrush and toothpaste all nestled in the Tesco Lotus plastic shopping bag. I said to Noi, “Fancy an ice cream?” She beamed and we ate Dairy Queen cones before returning to the taxi driver patiently waiting for us on the lot. I also learned my first lesson about Noi that day. In fact, I have found that lesson to hold true in respect of all Asian women I have known. Asian women love to eat! On many occasions I have pondered just where do they find space in their tiny bodies to put all that rice!


The taxi took about another twenty minutes before we reached our hotel but not before negotiating the notorious Telegraph Hill on the approach to Patong.


What do you think about the appetite of your Asian lady?

Telegraph hill on the way into Patong - I know it well !
I've been up and down that winding road on a moped many-a-time.
Incidentally, do you know the 'other' Telegraph hill in the UK? Just on the way into Torquay - it makes the one in Patong seem like a little lump in the road, lol.

Interesting story - I'm looking forward to the next instalment - but you are so right about little Asian ladies and their ability to eat tonnes of food yet never gain weight.

As for me, I only have to look at a cream cake and I go up at least 2 belt-holes. lol

Hey Ryan, I thought I had posted this when I approved your blog. Sorry for the delay.

Your blog has me missing Thailand. Of the countries I have visited and not lived in, Thailand is by far the one I would most like to live in for a while. During my single years in China I did visit Thailand frequently and had a Thai girlfriend for a while.

Thailand has a lot going for it. Extremely pleasant and happy people, attractive and fun to be with women, beautiful climate, stunning beaches, great pubs, restaurants and bars, and, in my opinion, the absolute best food in the world. I fully intend to get back there for a long term stay, with my wife who also loves the country I might add, just to avoid starting any rumours.

It all sounds so pleasant and enjoyable the way you're describing it now, but of course there are reasons to be wary. My Thai girlfriend used to tell me "You're so handsome. You have a face like an ATM!", but in reality she was not in it for the money and never asked me for anything by way financial assistance, but I got the feeling she was an exception and not the rule.

Of course, as several have already commented, I too can't help think that a guy who is now living in the Philippines probably isn't going to be describing a happy ending with Noi, so I am waiting for the inevitable shit to hit the fan soon, but not looking forward to it.

Anyway, nice blog again, Ryan. Keep it up!

Like John, I love Thailand, and have spent more time there than in any Asian country I have not actually lived in. I do think there are numerous differences between Thai women and Chinese women, and one of them is the attitude towards eating. I am not sure how Thai women keep thin, but Chinese women do it the old fashioned way: by not eating. Or by taking one hour to consume a mini-sized dessert. I am a great admirer of their will power, although, sadly, I have failed to emulate it. But back to Thailand. A great story whose unfolding I await with a feeling of dread (given the inevitable ending) and anticipation (for a story told in such vivid detail). One other note: although I have found things that looked like boxers in both Thailand and China, I never managed to find a pair that actually felt like the boxers I could get back in the states.

my woman(Chinese) who is all of 110lbs can eat double the amount of food as to what I can eat.

I really have no idea where she puts it...It also does not matter what kind of food it is(western or chinese), she just consumes it whilst enjoying every bite.

Great article so far....
