Is Your Thai Wife Prepping!
I think it probably stems from a background of uncertainty, mistrust of government and financial insecurity.
We haven’t quite dug a Nuclear Bunker in the back yard to hide from the pending ‘Zombie Apocalypse’, but we are certainly not going to run out of the essentials.
It took me a while to convince her, that if we were going to stock pile any food, that our normal diets might need to adjust. If we have to self isolate for a period due to the Coronavirus Covid-19, we might not have access to fresh fruit and vegetables.
The ‘penny has dropped’. So we now have a reasonable stock of canned and dry goods, and can look forward to tinned corned beef spaghetti bolognese and other ‘simplified’ dishes. I have to say I’m almost looking forward to the Spam. A blast from the past.
I somewhat foolishly suggested that if things got ‘really bad’ we might not have electricity or running water. I mean, things would have to be fairly dire for that to happen.
We now have enough bottled water for a month, and I do not exaggerate…..enough gas tins to cook for 6 months! You know those little Asian gas stoves that run of a small gas canister! Thankfully a friend at work uses them for camping so he can have them once all this gets back to normal..
What’s your Thai wife / partner prepping?
Do you try to bring a sense of reality to it all or just let them shop?
