I look like…

.. Hillary Clinton. Thats what a Thai lady at the gym told me the other day. Honestly !!! Khun N. and I usually chat a bit and laugh alot. She didn’t really understand why I don’t like being compared to a 59 year old American woman. No, I told her, I’m not American. I asked her if she can’t hear the different accents when someone speaks english. No, she said. I said, well when farang speaks thai, can’t you hear where they are from? Again, no. She said farang are farang and she can’t tell a difference.( btw.. this lady was married to a farang!)
Anyway… Later I asked her why she only did 20 sit-ups. ”there are no cute farang men watching”. My turn to laugh.

    People here have told me I look like Julie Andrews and Mia Farrow. In my dreams!! I would kill to look like either one of them but the only similarity is hair color.

    From the picture in the header I would say that you look nothing like Hilary. Don’t worry, just keep going to the gym and everything will be fine, I am sure. ๐Ÿ™‚

    You probably don’t even have to go to the gym, unless you enjoy it of course.

    Maybe it’s similar to us (Caucasian-looking people) not being able to tell many Asian nations appart by their appearance. I seriously struggle with that. I can never tell whether someone is Korean or Japanese or Mongolian.
    But maybe you’ve mastered that one since living in Thailand.

    Well anyway I wouldn’t worry, Hillary Clinton might be the only other blond Caucasian she knows ๐Ÿ™‚
