Madyank,

I was just curious to know if the place "Phuket" is actually pronounced in the same way that we would say "F*** It" ?

Thanks MadYank, much appreciated.

I'm starting to ask myself why I would live in an expensive cold country when what I do can be done anywhere in the world as long as I am connected to the internet.

LOL That same question was a primary motivator for me to stop thinking bout it and finally move. Of course it didn't hurt that I have a longterm Thai GF (whom I met in London) who speaks the lingo and has taught me quite a bit.
