Misushit?

This is probably the best Matsushita knockoff name, ever (combined with a retailer’s misspelling) – and that’s saying a lot since Matsushita and National brands were folded into Panasonic years ago. These trusted brand names live on in developing countries, even if new product lines do not.

I’ve seen quite a few Matsushita, National, and Panasonic knockoff names (and that’s just a few from this electronics group), but the most often honored here and elsewhere is probably Mitsubishi, including the following permutations:

Mitsuboshi:”Three hats”

Mitsubashi: “Three bridges”

Mizubashi: “Water bridge”

Matsuboshi: “Pine hat”

etc.

“Mitsubishi” literally means “three water chestnuts,” but “-hishi” is what we call a diamond mark so it’s just descriptive of the logo.

The Best Braised Pork Leg in Issan

Google review of Panom Rung Restaurant by Justin Yoshida

Staring locals. Scary truckers in the dark, broken parking lot… Raw chili and garlic in a dirty center bowl. Unapologetically fatty pork. Best of all, it’s sandwiched between a second rank gas station restroom and minimart. Need I say more?

It’s an epic hole in the wall.

The King of Thailand with a Nissan Cefiro A33

Some years ago, Nissan presented the King of Thailand, his majesty Bhumibol Adulyadej Rama IX, with the last Cefiro A33 produced in its one million unit production run in Thailand.

A good car for a great king. As a show of respect for his passing last year, we have also decided to let our beloved car go. A keen buyer has been found, and we say goodbye to our faithful ride this Friday.

Pokeween

It hath begun here in Thailand, where friendly spirits are mostly known for revealing winning lottery numbers and having extremely long arms.

UPDATE: Buddy candies are being quadrupled by decreasing walking distances 75%. Incense now attracts mostly Haunter and Gastly. Indeed, Pidgey and Rattata and other common mons seem to have been replaced by these types.
