    Last week ordered a Lulae V9 e-bike from Lazada for my lady to use for running errands around Pattaya. Cost with promo discounts was 8,571B. Shipping was quick, arrived two days after placing the order. Some assembly was required. Needed to attach the handle bar assembly, basket, front brake cable, and rear fender bracket. There's also a set of handle bar mirrors that need to be attached, but the mounting brackets included with the bike had holes that were too small for the mirror support arms. Sent a message to the vendor about the problem and 10 minutes later had a reply they'll ship replacement parts. So plus marks to the vendor for dealing with the problem very quickly. One negative though, no assembly instructions were provided, but it was easy enough to figure out what needed to go where. After assembling the bike I took it out for a test ride. While the motor is on the small size, 350W, it had enough power to move my 85kg up the small incline on our soi at 25kph, and down the incline at 30kph. With my lady riding and me pillion, it still had adequate power to move us along at a comfortable speed. The battery capacity is 48V 12A and cruising range is advertised at 65km. While I won't be giving up my mtn and road bikes just yet, for my lady to use for running errands, the Lulae e-bike is a good choice.

    They can only survive if the government continues to support them........ absolutely ridiculous considering Thailand has consistently been one of the worlds top tourist destinations for the last fifty odd years

    I think you'll find the more recent builds have less sq meters of living area than older builds. If it were me, I'd be looking at best price/sq m, and then comparing amenities and condition of the rental to make my final selection.

    Hi @tallguy 🙂 Great reply and thanks a lot for your effort. Just as you say I'm not necessarily super-strict at 2018 - but I do want it built within 5 years. Your names have been noted and I'll research them promptly. Thank you again sir 🙂 !

    Over at Mabprachan Reservoir water levels are still down as well. There's is a bit of water feeding into north end of the reservoir. Can just barely make out the stream amongst the heavy growth of weeds in this pic. This is the source of that water. Mabprachan Park is off to the right.

    Don't think I've come across any property listing site which allows you to filter by age of project, but then again it's not a factor I consider. I don't know why you are limiting yourself to projects finished in the last two years, you are severely limiting the number of options available. Stretching your criteria out to 5-6 years will give you a lot more options of buildings that still should be in very good condition when your 1 year contract ends. As far as projects that fit your criteria in the Pratumnak area I can't think of many off hand. Sands at the bottom of Soi 5 is the first one that springs to mind. There is also One Tower at the bottom of Soi 4 which I think may be 2 or 3 years old. There are possibly some projects in the New Nordic estate that may fit. In the Cosy Beach area there is a building on Kasetsin Soi 1, I think it is called The Jewel, which had just opened, or was just about to open, when I moved away from the area last year. Slightly off Pratumnak, on Theppraya Road there is a newish development about halfway down the hill between the Pratumnak lights and Thepprasit Road, I think it's called Carribean something?. I'm not sure exactly when it opened but think it's about 2-3 years old. As I said earlier expanding your criteria slightly will give you a lot more choice.

    A first time Pattaya tourist saw an elderly guy in a vest with his bar fine ordering a takeaway value meal at McDonald's in Central Festival and then wobble over to New Plaza where he ordered a happy hour 50 Baht Leo. He had noticed that they had ordered one meal, and an extra drink cup at Mickey's. As he watched, the Vest carefully divided a hamburger in half, then counted out the fries, one for him, one for her, until each had half of them. Then he poured half the Leo into the extra cup and set that in front of his bar fine. The Vest then began to eat, and his bar fine sat watching, with her hands folded in her lap. The tourist decided to ask if they would allow him to purchase another Leo and some gai yang from a nearby grill for them so that they didn't have to split their meal. The Vest said, "Oh no. We've been friends for ten years, and everything has always been and will always be shared, 50/50." The tourist then asked the bar fine if she was going to eat, and she replied, "It's his turn with the teeth."

    I have 2 different return flights booked over Christmas 2020 and New Year 2021, international from/to London. Today Thai Airways cancelled all of them. Looks like Christmas is cancelled and the forseeable future. Plus their big peak season in the gutter. Will they survive after this, and many other places come to that?
