Thai Zodiac Horoscope

Although the Thai Zodiac is similar to what we use in the West, you will see from the following chart that the Thai version is off by about 23 days. According to “Thai Ways” (Denis Segaller 205), this is because the Western version takes the sun as its reference point. While in the Thai system, the earth is taken as the reference point.

I always thought I was Gemini, but if I was born in Thailand, I would have been Taurus.

Australia V England

As I used to study in Australia and I am currently studying in England. I would like to make an approach in the differences between the two countries. I think it would be a very interesting point to make from an international student like myself and to express the differences between the two countries which share a long history. I also want to stress about the good and bad points between the two countries in my point of view.



– Weather!
– The cost of living (twice cheaper than England)
– All round tourist locations
– More open to the Asian world (less racism) especially Melbourne and Sydney
– More food selection
– Very good environment for studying as people are more friendly
– Better and cheaper transport (especially Trams in Melbourne – much better than buses here)
– Better countryside location where it is more isolated
– People are more friendly
– Kool accent


– Can be very hot on occasions
– Not so many Universities
– quite small in population



– Can watch football often.
– More diversification in big cities especially London
– Can meet many people from different cultures
– Fish & Chips!


– Very expensive
– I do not like the sterling
– People are still quite racist especially in the countryside
– The Weather!
– The transport
– The food!

I think that should do it for now. So far, Australia for me is better than England. I can confirm this by strongly saying, I’ve never been to a country where everyone wants to go to Australia. English people are desperate to live in Australia when not a single Australian I’ve met wanted to come and live in England. It’s nearly 1 a.m. and I should head off to bed now.
