  2. Sorry to disappoint you but I’m STILL HERE!! Had a heart attack in June. Feel a lot better now, lost a lot of timber and changed my whole lifestyle. Thabks to everyone who enquiries about me. The bar is still open as a restaurant, but only doing takeout and deliveries. It’s a very small trade but even if I sell just one coffee a day it’s “up yours” to COVID-19. Hooe we can all meet again soon. That will be a great day. Gonna post some photos of the food we are preparing and delivering daily. Take care everyone.

  3. Looks like the Tue/Fri Buakhao Market move to the opposite side of the soi wasn't such a good idea after all. They traded the high ground... For this...

  4. Greetings Monkeywatchers, showaddy crap to all of you who are still out there, and welcome to another month of Covid-induced vacuum. Hell’s teeth, when will all this crap be over so there’s something to write about again? Well imagine our surprise, Pattaya won’t be reopening to tourists on September 1 after all, not that anyone would have come anyway as all the hotels, bars, clubs and restaurants will still be closed by order of HRH King Covid XIX. Meanwhile, local officials have abandoned their plans to hold a piss up in a brewery as they couldn’t find anyone to organise it. Meanwhi

  6. The first part of this is actually true..... Today my Mrs was complaining that she felt there was swelling below her eyes, and her eyes had narrowed to slits. I suggested it was a reaction to the Chinese Sinovax vaccine she had last week.... This is quite common I said.... since my Pfizer, my ass has swelled to twice it's size, I am always hungry and eating, my mouth got bigger, my voice louder, and I strut around with a sense of entitlement!

  7. Underground drain at the WS entrance was getting worked on this morning. The drainage work at the low point on Sukhumvit near Pattaya Tai looks to have been completed. What is surprising is the area still had flood waters during last Friday's storm that were high enough to force the closure of Sukhumvit.

  8. The aftermath of today's storm starting at Sukhumvit looking towards Pattaya Tai. Soi Arunotai This was the first test of all the enlarged drains they put in on the soi that runs past M Club. No surprise it was a big fail. I was on my mtn bike and the water was over my seat at the high water mark. That puts the water level just shy of 1m high. Soi 13 looking towards Buakhao Pics of Buakhao This is looking up the soi by R Con where they spent all those months putting in a catch basin and pumps to keep the soi from flooding.

  9. In a secret order of Catholic priests there were twelve monks about to be ordained. The final test, ordered in secret to correct the Church's recent spate of embarrassing incidents, was for them to line up, nude, in a garden while a nude model danced before them. Each monk had a small bell attached to his privates, and they were told that anyone whose bell rang would not be ordained because he had not reached a state of spiritual purity. The model danced before the first monk candidate, with no reaction. She proceeded down the line with the same response until she got to the final monk. A

  11. When King Arthur was away looking for the Holy Grail he made Guinevere wear a chastity belt fitted with a small guillotine to stop anyone interfering with her. When he returned he asked all of his knights to drop their trousers and the only one still left with a cock was Lancelot. "Lancelot my faithful friend" he said, "You alone I can trust, what shall I do with these traitors?" ... "Come man, speak up, have you lost your tongue ... ?"

  12. While riding my Harley, I swerved to avoid hitting a deer, lost control and landed in a ditch, severely banging my head. Dazed and confused I crawled out of the ditch to the edge of the road when a shiny new convertible pulled up with a very beautiful woman who asked, "Are you okay? As I looked up, I noticed she was wearing a low-cut blouse with a cleavage to die for. "I'm okay I think." I replied as I pulled myself up to the side of the car to get a closer look. She said, "Get in and I'll take you home, so I can clean and bandage that nasty scrape on your head." "That's

  14. Quite a bit more damage on the beach after last night's storm compared to a the storm damage from a week and a half ago. This time the damage was along the entire length of the beach. Somebody finally got smart and lined a channel to keep more of the beach from washing away. Something they should have done from the very beginning. All they need now to make this a workable solution is build a foot bridge across the channel.

  16. I walk that street with my head on a swivel and assume everyone on a bike or in a car IS out to get me. Or at best simply incompetent. Sometimes I will step way to the side and other pedestrians pass me and I'm fine with it. Let them get clipped when that bike has to swerved because oncoming forced him to. I am too old to heal fast so I consider walking there combat. 😳

  17. They've completed the driveway on the front side of Arbour Hotel and Residence, so was able to get a pic of the entrance to their automatic car parking system. Memo to myself, come back and see how well this driveway to the below grade area is working out next time Pattaya floods.

  21. The idea of continuing the underpass, or overpass, to Thepprasit is alive once again. Pattaya locals object to planned Sukhumvit-South roads tunnel Best quote from the article... "Residents claimed, without evidence, that the underground tunnel would flood. The same fears were raised initially about the Central Road tunnel but it has never flooded." Unlike the Klang intersection, where the underpass was built on a high point, the Pattaya Tai to Thepprasit north end entrance/exit is at a low point on Sukhumvit. They've worked unsuccessfully for years to resolve the flo

  29. Sorry I’m late to this topic. I got my AZ two weeks ago in Bangkok. I am slowly getting the staff vaccinated, if they so desire, but it’s a slow process as they do not want Sinovac.

  33. As long as I came all this way via taxi, intercity buses aren't operating, I thought I'd spend a few days at the Banyan Tree on Sathorn Ave, about a 30 minute walk to the main entrance of Lumpini Park, halfway between the German and Malaysian embassies. I booked the VIP package including breakfast, thousand baht per day food and beverage credit (excluding alcohol), early check-in/late check-out, daily fruit plate, and room upgrade. Most impressive was the huge bathroom, as large as the living room. Nice view from
