  1. Hi Guys. Sorry for the late reply on this, but this website will be changing homes in the next couple days and due to the extreme number of things I have to do there will be little to no warning before it happens. I am going to do everything I can to minimize the downtime, but there will be some. I will give a longer explanation as to why later, but the short version is the datacenter I have hosted my dozen servers with for the last 15 years is closing down on short notice and I must move all my servers to a new datacenter... and while this website is personally important to me, the othe

  2. After 12 weeks I returned for my second AstraZeneca jab. The vibe was much different this time, much more upbeat, and more people in the hotels. I booked the Sofitel and they gave me a corner room on the 25th floor with lots of windows. The governor of my province had outlawed the sale of alcohol until the end of the month in an effort to reduce the covid spread, even in the 7-11s, so I came a few weeks early. The lobby was a nice place to hang out for afternoon tea I tried the 24-hour room service for Khao Soi,

  3. 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

  4. Sadly, is a report on Bangkok without bars. Fortunately, bars opened yesterday so I'll be back after Makha Bucha Day, but I needed some dental work so I spent a few weeks. Since bars were closed, I stayed on the river, at the Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel. Room was pretty good, all rooms have great views of the river. Looking the other way, from the hallway. Since bars were closed I made a trip to the liquor store for some whisky, purely for medicinal purposes, just in case I should get a toothache or something.

  5. It seems that while closed the PBG has still been feeding the masses. Unfortunately the masses are insects and the food has been our wooden tables and chairs. The work crews are rebuilding the furniture and expunging any insect infested wood from the premises. A bigger job that I expected. We have tentative plans to re-open on 15 January for limited hours and with a limited menu. Probably 3 - 11 pm. Nothing is sure yet as the situation here remains fluid and Omicron has yet to hit heavily. It's the government response to Omicron that remains the big unknown although the health minis

  6. Another trip to Bangers. Times are tough and lots of poor Issan farmers are depending on their young daughters to send my money home. It's an arduous and thankless task but someone has to do it . Stayed at the Rembrandt Suites once again, unbeatable value for a thousand baht. I always felt I received good service, seems even better now. Girls soap me up and down during shower ? give back massage, wash my dick . There's a Buddy's Bar and Grill between Sois 18 and 20, Guinness for 195/pint. Good breakfast too but they don't open until 11 AM. The 'full monty' i

  7. Greetings Monkeywatchers, showaddy crap to you all, and welcome to a few more desperate stories from the pits that’s now Patts. Well, any punters who thought they were coming back to Pattaya anytime soon have had their dicks well and truly slammed in the door by the latest pronouncements from the Thai government. What with bars and clubs remaining closed, more masks around than during a Batman convention, and if you’ve got a high temperature you ain’t getting in anywhere, not even a supermarket. The bottom line is if you want to know what it’s like in a Thai prison, take a holiday in Thai

  8. Lumpini Park recently reopened after being closed for a few months due to covid. I took the opportunity to spend a few hours there. The park covers 360 rai, on land donated by King Rama IV in 1925. A statue of King Rama IV decorates the entrance in the southwest corner, facing the Sala Daeng BTS station. Entrance required a temperature check, although few people were present mid-day. An oasis in the heart of the city An artificial lake covers much of the grounds, people like to feed the fish.

  10. Move is complete. for now. I already do not like this new server... The rushiness of this (yes, I just made that word up) forced my hand... but its up and working, and while it may be a bit slow - that part is temporary. Once I secure all my data (still have a dozen servers to go) I will post a longer explanation of why this move was necessary and my plan going forward - there will be another move at some point - back to my own hardware, but it will take several weeks I think. The hardware has to be shipped from its current location (Michigan) to California, where a good friend is going

  11. Greetings Monkeywatchers, showaddy crap to you all once again, and welcome to more lockdown lunacy, where we can only dream of the time when this is all over and we can return to those halcyon days of social distancing at minus 6 inches (or minus 2 inches if you’re Japanese.) In further pursuance of their disastrous Covid policy, Pattaya has decided to continue with the 9pm curfew and the alcohol ban in restaurants, at least until a decision is taken on whether the city can reopen in November. “Reopening” in this case would seem to involve the lucky visitors being under house arrest in t

  12. I hesitated to post here, as its not really a matter for disclosure on a forum, but here goes. I have over 8,000 hours on the B777- 200 and 300 ER. Boeings are very nice aircraft to fly, understandable ( as opposed to Airbus) and relatively easy to fly. I used to say to my colleagues that I could teach my Grandmother to fly a B777 in no time at all. I am retired now of course, but it is apparent to me, and to the airline pilot community as a whole, that Boeing have lost the plot and lost their soul, aided in great part by the incompetence of the FAA, something that is not only saddening,

  13. Just an update for all Pattaya Talk folks. Le Pub is open selling food and soft drinks, but more importantly some great conversation to keep you sane. Ive posted our menu, it’s basic, but all food is home made. I’m particularly proud of our triple cooked chips (British style) they’re big and greasy but soft and delicious. We are showing sport as well. There is a little foot traffic in the daytime, so we open at midday till 7:00pm, check Google or Facebook for the exact opening hours. We have a couple of waitresses in every day if you want a little female company.

  14. Greetings Monkeywatchers, core coon crap for taking the time to visit, and welcome to more dismal tales of Kung Flu City. Well, there’s been one or two minor changes in Pattaya this month. Like all the bars and clubs were shut down on April 9 by order of the local governor, who was allegedly described by one pundit as a “fucksplat” (what the hell does that mean?) Unsurprisingly, this has led to most of the hotels closing down as well. Happy days aren’t here again. According to the latest figures, Pattaya tourist numbers in January this year are down by 1% compared to the same time

  15. 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

Carry Out at Pala Some freelancers about but I don't think I wish to partake in any p4p until I've been fully vaccinated, just thinking about all the viruses I've collected from the girls over the years. Construction next to Q House progressing briskly. Across the street on Soi 7 it's lagging behind

Greetings Monkeywatchers, showaddy crap once more, and welcome to another month of Covid, so there’s bugger all to write about but nobody gives a shit as they won’t be back in Pattaya anytime soon. Well, let’s give it a go anyway. Four Thai men have been arrested by police for stealing metal drain covers, which they later confessed to doing in order to buy drugs. Police are now searching for drug dealers who accept drain covers as payment for their merchandise. The men were also given urine tests, though it remains unclear how this helped to progress the investigation. A 24 year ol

  20. 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.

  21. Here's one that make me laugh out loud. There's a new handiman at the zoo. He's given 3 jobs for his first day. First, clean the weeds out of the fishpond, for which he's given a shovel. Stepping into the fishpond, a huge pike jumps out and bites him on the arm. He swings the shovel and kills it stone dead. He looks around and nobody has been watching. What to do with the dead pike? Aha, the lion enclosure is over the way, so he drags the dead pike across and heaves it over the fence. Job done. His next job is to clean out the monkeyhouse, where he's attacked by two chimpanzees

  23. Greetings Monkeywatchers, showaddy crap for another month, and welcome to more stories from the Naked City. Only kidding, officer – honest. The big news this month is that Thailand is planning to welcome good old Johnny Foreigner back to its bosom by lifting all Covid restrictions in October. Just think, you’ll be able to invite a young lady to your room without having to obtain written permission from the police and the local hospital, and go to bed without wearing hazmat suits. Sounds too good to be true – and if something sounds too good to be true… Meanwhile, there’s a novel

  25. Thought I'd capture a few pictures for posterity of the soon to be demolished MIT bar complex. Starting at the top end of the complex. Last two shots on the Buakhao end at the split towards Tree Town. With the closure of MIT, thought I might see some signs of a few bars moving to Soi 7. Nothing going on this morning though. Can't see it in this shot, but work going on at a couple of new places on Soi Pothole.

  26. 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

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

  29. Came to town for my first Covid jab, hadn't been in Bangers for four months. Since there's a 9 PM curfew I knew I would be spending most of my time in the room so I booked a nice crib. I don't think they had many guests because the girls at the front desk knew my name before I handed them my passport at check-in. The hotel has direct access to the Nana BTS Rooms are decent size, the hotel opened about two years ago. Rates were 7000 per night when it opened, about 5600 pre-covid. I enjoyed the 60-inch TV but wasn't impressed by a lack

  30. Last week our neighborhood was informed the tree that was last of the jungle our neighborhood was carved from many years ago was slated for execution today. Not much else going on with the lockdown, so thought I'd capture the old tree's final hours. The reason the tree had to come down is it was getting too big for its britches. The tree was pushing out and cracking the security wall, and it's roots were cracking the wall foundation and steps. Noticed when the trunk was cut into pieces and brought down, there was a scrum by the neighbors, including my lady, to whack off and tak

  33. Hi Pattaya Talk. Just to let you know we are open again and our hours are 5:00pm till 11:00pm every night. Walking St is pretty quiet at the moment. No tourists and the roadworks starting to put cables under ground. There are plenty of bars open such as Pin Up, Windmill, Dollhouse, Atlantis and others. I have been doing some livestreams to keep the girls happy and put some money in the till, but I want to make it absolutely clear, there are no livestreams when the bar is open, we pack all the equipment away. So your privacy is assured. Here are a few photos of my li

  35. 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

  40. Soi 14 off of 3rd Rd is in a low lying area and quickly floods during rainstorms. They're now giving that soi the drain opening enlargement surgery. Unfortunately it doesn't appear they're doing anything to increase the size of the drain pipes, so the storm water will still have no place to go. Even more of a concern is we haven't had rain in the area for the last several days, but the drains are still half full of water that is barely moving. Over on Soi 21 they're working on the last stretch of road resurfacing. The workers had a chuckle when I held up my fist a

  41. Interesting that you mention that. I get on very well with both my sons in UK (Mid to late 30's age wise) one is a "shop steward" or whatever the union rep is called nowadays and the other is business oriented mid right Tory. In my yoof I tried to join the WRP and was very far left but then later was a proud Maggie supporter. Nowadays I am neither one nor t'other because I don't see the world through binary yes/no vision but through it all I have been proud to be born English and despise anybody that is ashamed to be English. If they don't like the country then they should fuck off !
