How does one understand the Thai mind.
Here's me, going out-of-of-my-mind wanting her to return to me in the Land of Oz and Mai rejects me so she can fulfil a late obligation as a companion/carer!
I suppose I can't be complaining too loudly about it, it is only a 15 day assignment with an Aussie girl from Cairns, much better than the American girl, who would have kept Mai from me for 4 weeks, dammit.
I regress though, so to begin the story, Noi, who lives in Bangkok, is the primary person in a network I am setting up, of Thai companion/carers who give of their time 24/7 as complete carers/ companions of the highest order from, if you should want, the Airport, in Hospital( they sleep either on the lounge in your ward room or on a trundle bed) to being with you in the Hotel and wherever your travels, limited though they may be after surgery, may take you, to when you leave around a month later.
They fulfil all or any part of that time of recuperation, with you, totally dedicated to your needs.( Noi actually has a night or two off for her husbands needs)
The idea is growing and my wife Mai, when she is in Thailand and ignoring me( alright so that's a petty thing to say but she's NOT with me, is she) is currently( October) looking after an Aussie girl and that's my dilemma.
She was supposed to come to Oz to be with me, but Noi has a client, Kam has a client and the girl from Pattaya( I forget her name) has a client, so Mai, quite unreasonably said she could not leave this Aussie girl alone and I would have to wait.
Now how selfish is that!
These girls are fast gaining a well-deserved reputation for their selfless dedication to their charges, namely you and I can assure you that I get not a cent for their efforts but the fee they charge for this extraordinary service is worth much more than mere monetary cost to you.
Having a trouble-free recovery from surgery is something each and every one of us dearly wish for and the testimonials that these girls can provide is indeed priceless.
My Mai is so selfless, I wish I could match what she does..... sigh.
Oh, you want more details?
See my profile page or give me a buzz..
In the meantime, I am sulking at being left alone for another 2 weeks.
All so someone else can have it easy!
