Poll shows that bad situations don't stop Thais enjoying life

Ref: "Yingluck and Suthep, the pair we most want to drench", News, yesterday.

With Thailand the only sick man of Asean and amid many foreigners' confident views of the coming civil war and your competitor's opinion that Suthep aspires to grabbing dictatorial power, Suan Dusit Poll reveals us to be as resilient as ever.

Despite the bad news and prospects, 67 per cent believe that this Songkran will be as fun as before and 25 per cent think even more fun. That leaves only 8 per cent in the categories of less fun and "don't know".

I love Thailand! Bad situations do not stop us from enjoying life. That tells us that those critics of Thailand do not really understand the Thai mentality and yet believe in their self-importance and righteousness based on a different culture of whining and damning others.
