    Re: Gippy Tummy

    OK I over reacted and got in a strop. Just for the record I was raised a vegetarian and I don’t try and persuade others to be the same and I don’t get all moral about it. I just don’t like to or want to eat meat. It never did my father any harm who lived healthily well into his 90s.

    However, I’ve never understood why some people are so intolerant of the idea. In some places I’ve travelled such people would find themselves in the minority. In some parts of India suggesting that someone might like to eat a steak and a KFC would not go down at all well.

    I’ll stick to reading posts on the main Forum in future and won’t revisit this thread. Asking for sensible advice was obviously expecting too much.

    Yes, I think it might be best to withdraw from the field for a while.

    Actually I think you both were arseholes to the guy - he posted a perfectly reasonable post about getting sick when travelling and you both launched on him. Frequent, you just because that's just how you get your kicks of course.

    He doesn't have to justify he choices to anyone and if he choses not to eat meat for "whatever" reason then that's his choice and it's no one else's business and as he says and as is well documented choosing to be vegetarian has no negative effect on your heath and I also doubt it has anything to do with him getting ill particularily when on holiday perhaps either.

    As he said is it a bit of wonder people chose not to post here sometimes.......Thankfully he's already decided that two posters just being pure mean wont stop him thankfully.

    Agreed. It's pretty pointless trying to raise serious topics here, since there are a handful of trolls who bugger it up for everyone else. I'll send my comments by PM.

    Could it be a problem with ice? I never have ice in any of my drinks, as I have seen some of the enclosures where bags of ice are filled to be delivered to bars etc and it entails enormous slabs of ice that are sitting on concrete being smashed up by guys clambering around it.

    I once had dreadful food poisoning in Tunisia in the seventies and it was traced to the watermelon which, more often than not, was served to hotel guests after the meal. The kitchen staff were running the water melon under the kitchen tap before serving it to make it more appealing!!

    I think ice is fine but I'd never trust a salad prepared in a Thai kitchen. Having said that, I eat chopped fruit from the local fruit vendors every day with no ill effect. Interestingly many now wear plastic gloves

    I never worry about ice which is the 'safe' shape.
    Not sure how to describe it.

    But I am wary of any ice which seems to be crushed ice.
    ..........and that's the way it is.

    I used to buy the pre-packed fruit on the beach in Jomtien until I found the location where they chop up the mangos etc.
    It was a board covered in old newspaper speckled with bird droppings under a tree around soi 8 on Jomtien Beach.

    Re: Gippy Tummy

    In the first years, I certainly got stomach problems in Thailand far more often than in Europe (in Thailand more than once per year, in Europe three times in 30 years). I could never track any of these cases back to a certain food or restaurant. But now I can eat streetfood and drink tap water everywhere in SEAsia without problems.
