  1. Greetings Monkeywatchers, showaddy crap for another month, and welcome to the great reopening that never was. As predicted, the whole story was a load of old crap and now we’re being told it’s going to be January 16… or not. Oh well, onward and downward. Well, TAT has published its ideas for a new post-lockdown no-sex “quality tourist” focused Pattaya, so there’s only one thing left to do now. Open the hangar doors and get the pigs onto the runway. Over the years and around the world, it’s been demonstrated time and time again that trying to socially engineer tourist destinations is an ex

  3. So I had my renewal appointment today. My appointment was scheduled for 2:30pm, I arrived around 2:15pm. I went inside and they told me to go to the desk outside in the parking lot. From the entrance, I can see where the Foreigner check in table. They checked my documents, had me sign a couple of things gave me a plastic laminated queue number and told me to go inside to the second floor at 2:30 at station 14. Station 14 is the reaction test and color blindness testing station. They had all ten for the 2:30 appointment do the test, then wait a bit to pay. After paying 760 baht for both re

  6. So you won't go to a warm place to drink beer, eat amazing food, and have fun with beautiful young women because you are frightened of a q-tip up your nose for 30 seconds? I've had 2 Pfizer shots, as have virtually all my family and friends. We all have the same complaint....our cell phone coverage hasn't improved.

  9. There's a new burger joint in town called Bang Bang Burger, at the location of the previous Daniel Thaiger burger before 'the T' on Soi 11, across from Hillary 11. They serve the same craft beers as before but the restaurant now has a boxing theme. They serve a Cassius burger, an Iron Mike burger, a Raging Bull (with jalapenos), and a Duke. Burgers go for 320, including fries. This is the Cassius, a bacon burger. Here is The Duke, which is without the bacon. I had to research "Duke" in boxing lore and it turns out to be Tommy Morrison

  10. I'm bumping this thread to wish everyone Ever wonder why we call a turkey a turkey? The answer goes back more than 600 years. In the 15th century, African birds called guinea fowl were exported to Britain by Turkish merchants of the Ottoman Empire. The birds were called Turkey cocks or hens and the name was eventually shortened to "turkeys" or "turkies." When English explorers reached North America in the 1500s and saw the bird we today call the wild turkey, they thought it was a relative of the (guinea fowl) "turkey" with which they were familiar. The name stuck. A guine

  11. Five friends, four Catholic men and a Catholic woman were having coffee. The first Catholic man tells his friends, 'My son is a priest, when he walks into a room, everyone calls him 'Father'.' The second Catholic man chirps, 'My son is a Bishop. When he walks into a room people call him 'Your Grace'.' The third Catholic guy says, 'My son is a Cardinal, When he enters a room everyone says 'Your Eminence.' The fourth Catholic man then says, 'My son is the Pope. When he walks into a room people call him 'Your Holiness'.' Since the lone Catholic woman was sipping her coffee in

  15. An old lady in a nursing home is wheeling up and down the halls in her wheelchair making sounds like she's driving a car. As she's going down the hall an old man jumps out of a room and says, "Excuse me ma'am but you were speeding. Can I see your driver's license?" She digs around in her purse a little, pulls out a candy wrapper, and hands it to him. He looks it over, gives her a warning and sends her on her way. Up and down the halls she goes again. Again, the same old man jumps out of a room and says, "Excuse me ma'am but I saw you cross the center line back there." "Can I see your regi

  16. Work has restarted on the Jomtien beach expansion project. What's surprising is I didn't see any sand bag reinforcements going in like they did on the Pattaya beach project. It'll be interesting to see how long the expanded beach holds up to tidal action and strong side onshore winds.

  22. Several men are in the locker room of a golf club; a cell phone on a bench rings, a man engages the hands-free speaker function and begins to talk ... Man: "Hello" Woman answers: "Honey, it's me. Are you at the club?" Man: "Yes." Woman: I am at the mall and found a beautiful leather coat. It's $1,500. Can I buy it?" Man: "OK, go ahead if you like it that much." Woman: I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw the 2021 models. I saw one I really liked." Man: How much?" Woman: $85,000. Man: "For that price I want it with all the options." Woma

  23. For those that might be interested in how effective air purifiers are, here's a mini review of the Sharp FP-F3061-C that I've been using in my home office for a little over four years now. What prompted the review was a question on another forum on how effective the Sharp Clean Ion Shower is. Here's the CnP of the reply I posted. Just turned my Clean Ion Shower on and like you can't smell anything different that would indicate it's having an effect. As luck would have it though, my latest toy from Lazada arrived today. A SNDWAY SW-825 PM2.5 detector. So I ran some tests to see if the

  25. Thanks. I wasn't sure if late morning or early afternoon was best. In case anyone is curious, because of Covid, you now need an appointment to renew your DL. I went to the DLT yesterday Nov 22 and the first available appointment was Dec 3. Because I am renewing my five year, I had to watch a video online at www.dlt-elearning.com. The video is one hour long, mostly in Thai language with English subtitles and a bit of spoken English. It pauses every 15 minutes to make sure you are there and will pause if the focus is taken away from the browser playing it. There really isn't anything i
