    I mentioned Poompui and I think some of you were interested too. I don't why they named her, usually girls named Lek it makes sense, but that's her real name. Every time I come, the Rembrandt Suites seem to be priced a few baht lower, but I wanted to stay in the Nana area this time so I booked the JW, for about the same you used to pay for the Rembrandt Suites. Haven't stayed in this hotel since 2004. Gone are the days when you could use the side entrance and sneak a girl past the cigar store, which is closed now. I believe they're still guest friendly but don't want to navigate this crowd with a GoGo girl young enough to be my grand daughter, so I visited my massage girl, we took some selfies but she asked I not post them publicly. The last time I stayed at the Landmark, it was beginning to show its age. Not so at the JW, I thought the room was a very high standard. And I even had a view of Nana Plaza Their buffets were half price but I don't do buffets. On the second floor, the Manhattan Lounge had a nice happy hour I walked up Soi 11 for a burger, my old neighborhood The waitress remembers my order I went over to Fitzgeralds on Soi Nana for breakfast. Also tried the Fish & Chips there (haddock) but was disappointed. The crust was crispy enough but fillet was too small. Mushy peas were good, however. The scene was quiet in lower Sukhumvit, except for the lady that fell in the hole on Soi Arab Did some shopping at Siam. Bought some new glass for my camera and took a break with some iced fruit tea. On Tuesday, I went for Taco Tuesday at Slanted Taco on Soi 23. Buy a taco for 80++, get one free. I walked through Soi Cowboy in memorial to Bernard Trink. They have food vendors in the afternoon. Tacos were great, two shrimp (with a slice of avocado), and two sea bass (without the skin). Fresh mango margarita was 240++, chips and salsa were complimentary. At night, Nana Plaza very quiet. Over at Soi Cowboy, same, same. I entered Baccara around 11 and there were only two other customers. There's a superstar that is allowed to wear underwear now, doesn't have to show her pussy anymore. Bummer. She was one of the ones that only went with Asians, just ignored me for seven years, wouldn't give me the time of day. I hold no animosity and now I'm about the only game in town, so I bought her a few lady drinks to sit on me lap and grind. She massaged my shoulders and neck, my crotch, I can see why the Japanese like her, and she's gorgeous, but I had too much drink for bar fine. She'll be a priority on my next visit, and I won't be drinking at all that night. This week, I came for Poompui.😍 Went to Monsoon on Soi 8 afterward, they've moved half a block, to the corner where you turn to go to Lolitas, second subsoi. Here's the soft shell crab salad. Hope you enjoyed my report. Cheers

    Greetings Monkeywatchers, core coon crap for dropping in, and welcome to this month’s look at the latest non-events in Tumbleweed City. Well, it looked like Thailand was about to take its first cautious steps in allowing ‘tourists’ back in, though to gain admission you’d have had to be Japanese or Chinese and be prepared to undergo a 31 step administrative equivalent of a special forces assault course followed by two weeks solitary confinement. One wondered why they were giving preferential treatment to the odious little yellow bastards who caused this catastrophe in the first place, and we all hoped it was a trap. And yes, it was a trap alright. They suckered 300 Chinese tourists into paying upfront for 14 days at a quarantine hotel plus 90 days further accommodation and exorbitant visa fees then, just hours before the first arrivals were due, scrapped the whole thing and refused to refund any of their money due to an escape clause buried in the small print. Let’s hope the Covid-ridden little shitweasels get the message and stay away for good. Meanwhile, businesses in Pattaya are trying various cunning ploys to entice people into their premises. One well-known Indian restaurant is offering a free bottle of wine with every meal, though customers have commented that the contents of the bottle bear more than a passing resemblance to the water off Bali Hai Pier. One suspects that this isn’t entirely coincidental. This must be what they mean by a Covid bubble... Local government has been approached to reimburse a Rayong fisherman for the loss of his boat after it was allegedly sunk by a water spout while he was plying his trade. He’s claiming over 90,000 baht for the recovery and repair of his boat, though the recently recovered vessel looks like it wouldn’t have withstood a sustained attack from a water pistol, let alone a water spout. Those in the know have suggested he’s unlikely to come out of this with more than 500 baht and a kick up the arse (and he probably won’t get the 500 baht.) In another first for Pattaya, a plastic recycling plant has come up with a novel new way of recycling material by converting it into heat. Or to put it another way, the whole place burned to the ground. Well it’s a sort of recycling, innit? A mentally ill Thai man had to be rescued recently after climbing a telephone tower in Pattaya and refusing to come down. Hang on, this exact same thing happened a few months back with another Thai bloke who had mental health issues. So why do Thai nutters all make a beeline for phone towers then? Could the 5G conspiracy theorists be right after all? Wind back to pre-Covid days now with a trio of yarns from Monkeywatch in October 2010… “City Hall has been having a bit of a hissy fit about the large quantities of litter being strewn around the locality by tourists and business operators. They reckon it’s ruining the image of Pattaya’s beaches. That’s a little bit like ruining the image of a turd by dropping a cigarette butt onto it. The Health and Safety people have also been having a go, and last week called a meeting with Pattaya’s street food vendors following complaints from customers about hygiene standards. They cited a particular example of a Thai customer who was incensed after finding a grasshopper in his bag of cockroaches. A Pattaya pharmacist was arrested a couple of weeks ago after it was discovered that he was selling fake Viagra tablets to unsuspecting holidaymakers. He now faces a sentence of five years soft labour. People are still asking why they have to be careful what they post on boards about the goings-on in bars when it’s widely accepted that the boys in brown already know, so here’s a little reminder. It’s quite simple. You see, it’s one thing for them to know, but entirely another if we let them know that we know that they know, because once they know that we know that they know, then they know that they have to let the bar know that they know, or they know that those in the know will know that they know even though they’re pretending that they don’t know. So now you know.” To help pay for the pandemic, City Hall is selling off Pattaya Beach at 1000 baht per scoop. Don’t all rush at once… Bar news now, and it wasn’t a good start to the month with the closure of Pattaya Beer Garden, Glass House, Bliss and Far East Rock 2, but it’s not all doom and gloom. Baccara, Sensations, Lighthouse, Shark and Party Girlz have all reopened and Heaven Above looks set to open in its new location on Soi Boomerang (good street name for a bar trying to make a comeback.) There’s one thing about all this kung flu nonsense that might work to our advantage. When a vaccine does become available, a lot of us old buzzards should be at the front of the queue for an armful and could be back in action while the young whippersnappers are still queuing at the starting gate for their fix. Just think, we could all be the girls’ hansum young men again, at least for a while. That’s what it’s all about – getting a few in before the lights go out. A golf course cashier has been arrested after being caught using the stolen credit card of a Japanese customer. The thief was apprehended after making the mistake of using the card to buy regular sized condoms, a dead giveaway as these are of course several sizes bigger than those manufactured for the Japanese market. As the Japanese say, give them quarter of an inch and they’ll take a mile. Looks like Beach Road’s preparing for a visit from the mayor… Two local Pattaya women were pulled out of a pickup truck after it was found under a large tree following a heavy rainstorm. Police arrived on the scene shortly afterwards and proceeded to arrest the women for trying to steal the tree. When it was pointed out that the truck had been moving at the time of the incident, a police spokesman replied “These drive-by thefts are becoming more and more common. We’ve already had three handbags stolen this way since the beginning of the week.” In another tree story, a motorcyclist was killed the other day after hitting one at high speed on Jomtien Second Road. Witness statements say that the man wasn’t wearing a helmet, though this is subject to confirmation as the police haven’t found his head yet. And we can’t finish without mentioning that, as of five days ago, there are a grand total of 39 foreign tourists in Thailand. And they’re all Chinese. Happy days are here again. be seeing you monkeyman

    Rhino your girls are lovely. The one you posted on the Pattaya forum was outstanding. I was in Bangkok last night for a 1 night tear. Spent way to much money. Hotel Majestic Suites is open again 800baht. Lunch was the lamb burger from Le Buchon. Not typical of me but took 2 wonderful girls from Butterflies in Nana. They came out of the shower with hotel robes on smiling and laying side by side. Cost: transport 4,000 baht, Girls were 3k each but could probably could less. Barfines 800 baht. A Beer Garden favorite was 1k. Yes silly money and Pattaya is a bargain. Im going to try posting pictures since that is the life of the forum as we see from Rhino and before Teelack. Please be gentle. My photos will suck at first.

    The Pentagon recently found it had too many generals and offered an early retirement bonus. They promised any general who retired right away, his full annual benefits plus $10,000 for every inch measured in a straight line along the retiring general's body between any two points he chose. The first general accepted. He asked the pension man to measure from the top of his head to the tip of his toes. 6 feet. He walked out with a check for $720,000. The second general asked them to measure from the tip of his outstretched hands to his toes. 8 feet. He walked away with a check $960,000. Meantime, the first general had tipped off the third as to the additional bonus check. When the third general was asked where to measure, he told the pension man, "from the tip of my penis, to the bottom of my testicles." The pension man said that would be fine, but he'd better get the Medical Officer to do the measuring. The Medical Officer attended and asked the general to drop his pants. He did... The Medical Officer placed the tape on the tip of the general's penis and began to work back. "My God!" he said, "where are your testicles?!" The general replied, "Back in Iraq!"

    Three old men are talking about their aches, pains and bodily functions. One seventy year old man says, "I have this problem. I wake up every morning at seven and it takes me twenty minutes to pee." An eighty year old man says, "My case is worse. I get up at eight and I sit there and grunt and groan for half an hour before I finally have a bowel movement." The ninety year old man says, "At seven I pee like a horse, at eight I crap like a cow." "So what's your problem?" asked the others. "I don't wake up until nine."

    That would be one of the saddest things I have ever seen. For so many people 7 and 8 had enough happening to keep us there all night. I stayed in most of the hotels in Soi 8 and drank, danced and barfined from the bars and gogos in the area. My heart goes out to the people who lost their jobs, life savings and dreams. Its a bloody tragedy. Sent from my CPH1941 using Tapatalk

    My worst trip was probably 12 years ago, pattaya to airport. Unfortunately, my cab was booked for 5am on January 1st, and yes, i guess the driver had been partying. Fortunately the roads were clear, but the driver appeared to keep nodding off, his eyes getting heavy until they closed and his head dropped..... this latter movement waking him up. I had deliberately sat in the front of the vehicle, and formulated a plan if he had fallen asleep.... gear lever (on dash) into neutral, grab the wheel to steer, and pray .... As it was the driver stopped at the service centre, and when he returned he found me in the drivers seat. He didnt argue, and I drove to the airport....fortunately I'd got a few trips under my belt and roughly knew the way. When we arrived I stopped, got out, retrieved my luggage, and left, leaving the driver snoring gently on the passengers seat. Being a kind sole, I did leave the agreed fee on the dash, but surprisingly, no tip!

    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.

    Well considering i live here married to a Thai national i've got a massive problem with it, they can shove it where the sun don't shine and i refuse to pay it where it is enforced, some places have a very sensible attitude after wifey has a chat with them. Its not about the money for me, its the principle....... Onwards and upwards, things can only get better lol

    Phil! Well done for getting this video out into the world. Having said that, the streets in Pattaya on a Monday night recall those dark days of closedown due to public holidays. At least then we were expecting the bars and clubs to reopen at midnight. I recall all the places that you have worked at other than Club Blue (and yet I recall the original Beavers). I thought that I would focus in on one area that holds a special place in my affections and this is Covent Garden. It was here that the X Zone , Club Boesche and others existed. Strangely enough I was never a Boesche fan but that of course was because I was upstairs enjoying myself too much. X Zone for me as a country boy come to town, was the ultimate. It was everything that Pattaya should be and that the world out there wasn’t. I enjoyed not just the girls but also the level of management that is an absolute must for a club to work well. I had a lady move in with me from the club and up until about a year ago I was still seeing her. She was a naïve gogo girl from Issan until she worked there and realised how much money could be made with a mobile phone ringing in her pussy or firing darts at balloons. There was also a wonderful toilet lady who pointed Percy at the porcelain when you were too tired. The other thing that I have noticed is that right up to the last trip I would still meet ladies who would say something like "I remember you from the X Zone". As a side issue I wonder if anyone on this board ever got into the Iran Club which had an entrance half way up the stairs. This was an Arab club but there used to be the odd tasty lady going there but I never got in the doors. One thing that we should not forget is that the building kept on reinventing itself. When one place closed down another opened. The successor of Boesche wasn’t all bad and the place at ground level to the right of the front door had more lives that a cat on a motorway. Even Jaime (Ex FLB, Barron, Beavers) ran a place there. The last of them was as dark as the inside of a rubbish bag but hey, that’s what was wanted. Darkness makes us all look better! It is a strange thing that while I am in total agreement that your management always improved the places where you worked, there were a few that I couldn’t settle down in. Secrets was a bold attempt to move up market and we ex X Zone people just were not looking for that level of sophistication. Baby Dolls was different and you returning a bar fine from a disaster is something that stays with me. Sugar Baby was so improved that it had two floors open and so it goes on. If there is one point that I would like to reiterate it is that I can say 100% that your management input always made any of the places that you went to, that much better.

    The manager in a general store is training a new young recruit in the art of upselling. He tells him to watch what he does when a customer walks in and asks for a packet of lawn seed. Manager: This seed is really great, you'll have a superb lawn in just weeks. Might be a good idea to buy a lawnmower as well, so that you can take good care of it. Customer: That's a good idea, I don't have one yet, can you show me what you have? The manager makes the sale, then tells the trainee to try using the upselling technique on the next customer. A guy comes in and asks for a pack of sanitary towels for his girlfriend. Trainee: Sure, no problem, can I also interest you in a lawn mower? Customer: Whatever for? Trainee: Well, your weekend's fucked, so you might as well mow your lawn.

    Edith and Marie were outside their nursing home, having a smoke when it started to rain. Edith pulled out a condom, cut off the end, put it over her cigarette and continued smoking. Marie: What's that? Edith: A condom. This way my cigarette doesn't get wet. Marie: Where did you get it? Edith: You can get them at any drugstore. The next day, Marie hobbles herself into the local drugstore and announces to the pharmacist that she wants a box of condoms. The guy looks at her kind of strangely (she is, after all, over 80 years of age), but politely asks what brand she prefers. Marie: It doesn't matter as long as it fits a Camel.

    Two elderly women Marie & Edith were out driving in a large car, both could barely see over the dashboard. As they were cruising along they came to an intersection. The stoplight was red but they just went on through. Edith in the passenger seat thought to herself "I must be losing it, I could have sworn we just went through a red light." After a few more minutes they came to another intersection and the light was red again and again they went right though. This time Edith was almost sure that the light had been red but was really concerned that she was losing it. She was getting nervous and decided to pay very close attention to the road and the next intersection to see what was going on. At the next intersection, sure enough, the light was definitely red and they went right through and she turned to the Marie and said, "Marie! Did you know we just ran through three red lights in a row! You could have killed us!" Marie turned to her and said, "Oh, am I driving?"

    A blonde ran into a police station wailing. She claimed that she had been raped. After she stopped sobbing, the Police Officer requested her for a description of the rapist. "He was tall and dressed in white. He was wearing all sorts of protective pads, gloves and helmet." "Hmmm...appears to be a cricketer," concluded the policeman. "Ah officer!" she confirmed, "then he must have been an English cricketer." "What makes you think that he was English? From the accent?" asked the officer. "No sir," she replied, "he just didn't stay in very long."

    Soi’s 7 & 8 were dead before the pandemic. The market was large enough to support 3 red light areas and Soi’s 7/8 declined as Soi LK Metro expanded. The location is good and the area will surely be developed commercially when things rebound.

    Your attitude is spot on. Thai officials won't know that you are to all intents a Thai resident. Let the lady do the negotiations. I have found that shutting up sometimes is the way to handle things. My experience with a traffic cop and MM's experience with DUI come to mind. If you have an advantage, use it.

    A married couple were traveling down the highway at a very rapid pace, when a patrolman put on the siren and pulled them over. The officer said to the husband "Can I see your license and registration?" The husband says " Why? I wasn't doing anything wrong", and the patrolman replies ... "Sir, I caught you on radar at 75 mph and the speed limit is 55 in this zone, I'll have to give you a ticket." Hubbie goes nuts saying that he wasn't speeding and the patrolman should be out catching criminals instead of harassing law abiding citizens such as him and his wife. The patrolman is trying to reason with the husband when the wife leans over and looks at the patrolman and says "You'll have to excuse my husband, he always gets like this when he has been drinking."

    A heads-up that El Goucho Argentinian Steakhouse on Soi 19 next to Terminal 21 has a weekday afternoon special 600 baht off on their fine steaks 1 pm until 5 pm. Here the 400g Striploin, add a baked potato with sour cream and bacon and a glass of Chilean red and the meal still comes to 2000 even with the discount. The building has a special place in my heart as I sagged a lot of girls there when it was City Lodge, there was an Italian restaurant on the ground floor back then, before Terminal 21 was constructed. https://th.elgaucho.asia/menus/

    It does take a special breed to be in the bars day after day. I couldn’t do it myself, but nothing against those who do. It also appears to be not very secure career wise. Changing bars every few years (or more often). No real job security, pension, 401k or equivalent. Pretty much a day to day, hand to mouth existence. Then they wake up one day, older, no longer marketable and little if any money saved. Living the dream.

    Stumpy and his wife Martha went to the State Fair every year. Every year Stumpy would say, "Martha, I'd like to ride in that there airplane." And every year Martha would say, "I know, Stumpy, but that airplane ride costs five dollars, and five dollars is five dollars." This one year Stumpy and Martha went to the fair and Stumpy said, "Martha, I'm 71 years old. If I don't ride that airplane this year I may never get another chance. " Martha replied, "Stumpy, that there airplane ride costs five dollars, and five dollars is five dollars." The pilot overheard them and said, "Folks, I'll make you a deal. I'll take you both up for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and not say one word, I won't charge you, but if you say one word it's five dollars." Stumpy and Martha agreed and up they go. The pilot does all kinds of twists and turns, rolls and dives, but not a word or a squeal is heard. He does all his tricks over again, but still not a word or a sound. They land and the pilot turns to Stumpy, "By golly, I did everything I could think of to get you to yell out, but you didn't. I can't charge you the five dollars. The ride is free". Stumpy replied, "Well, I was gonna say something when Martha fell out, but five dollars is five dollars."
