Saturday night spoof

- +

It's almost that day of the month when it's perfectly acceptable - even encouraged - to spend money for the possibility of getting lucky. Yes, Valentine's Day is looming much to the delight of couples who need a special occasion to break out of their dry spell, while lonely single folk are probably honouring Feb 14 by throwing a "Happy Four Days After Chinese New Year" party. 

Whether you choose to celebrate by eating chocolates bestowed upon you by your lover, or eating chocolates you sent to yourself because your looks and personality prevent you from having a lover, one thing is for sure: Don't come to Thailand looking for cheap romantic thrills because you won't find it here.

You see, for some completely absurd reason, people falsely think of Thailand as being a place filled with prostitutes that roam freely in the wild. I have no idea why Thailand has acquired this reputation, because I know for a fact that the women standing on the street corner are exchanging stock tips, and the females who are topless in a bar simply cannot find shirts that fit them.
