Farang is what people in Thailand call westerners as a sign of how much they hate them. Like the Chinese blaming everything from the Opium War in 1840 on gweilos, the Thais blame all of the problems in their country on farangs. While taking their money and marrying off their poor and unwanted divorces to stupid faring, they laugh at them behind their back and discriminate against them in every way such as through "two-thirds pricing". Farangs are always associated with the Patpong hooker district of Bangkok and marry bar girls.
Thai sez to farang: You foreigner, you pay double price!!

Faranges is a name that is used a lot in Afghamistan. Faranges is a warm hearted person. She can come across as sassy and savage but she is the cutest human being alive. She isn't afraid to speak out on you and put you in your place because she is always honest. She has lived a hard life with obstacles where she still got scars from, but that made her only stronger. She can cry easily when things go hard but she will get over it quickly and become the silly person she is. She is the loveliest mother alive, she'll do anything for her children. She doubts herself a lot of times and is scared that no one loves her. But she needs to be reminded that the people most important to her, will love her till the end. She is a great example for a good person.
Person 1: Do you know Faranges? What do yiu think about her?
Person 2: She is strong minded girl, you must be lucky to have her on your side.
