  1. Any one wants to play a pussy par 3 at Asia hotel ? The bright side is we can play proper pussy at Kinaree after a quick 9,
  2. Mid , Raiders were always a favorite of mine. yea , surprised any one remembers these guys Dave and Mike. and Jim. It was all about sportsmanship and commitment to a city. Cal was the last one, . . Do you remember Dempsey's rain delay show? Im looking at the Senators next year
  3. American , we dont care about soccer. . We watch Football and Baseball . My home team the Baltimore Orioles sucks. . But i still support them and want to be at the field next summer.The BBq and hot dogs dont get any better. I was very happy when my daughter played Lacrosse instead of soccer . I was pulling for the Thai girls to upset. my team. Even though im an American. Sorry the score was so lopsided. But hell , those girls can hit a golf ball.
  4. This has been a total bitch for me since i use the 65000 a month option for renewals. I have used Transferwise and quite good but no guarantee it will show as an ITT. Going to the States in September so i will just get another O-A from Washington. Good for 2 years. I understand why some guys are looking to Vietnam. But this is my home. i'll deal with it the best i can.
  5. I stay at he Majestic every month to visit friends in Bangkok. Several trips ago i had the misfortune of being across the hall from this group. They propped open the doors of several rooms and had a loud conversation and party late in the hallway.
  6. Many years ago i looked at Nirun and except for those prison outer doors liked it. The girl i was with at the time did not, " I am not with you to live Thai". She Left me , married an American and is one of the 8 people living in Nebraska. I remember Larry posting he ordered delivery food and the guy said ok i know where you are, where the dealers live. Maybe true but you dont shit where you live. I would be happy to pay a months rent for what i spend a few nights on pussy. . A nice mix of Thai and Falang. I doubt you need to look over your shoulder at 0200.
  7. I used to flag a departure taxi but now another fan of Nam's . Returning from the the Phillipines last week i forgot to book a driver. Got in the taxi, towel over the meter. "Pattaya 1700 baht" Told her in Thai, Stop Here!. I hope Nam's can continue the excellent service provided.
  8. Sure Jacko, sorry i'm not the best at the link thing. Go to Forums, the discussion on the crash. A lot of info on the Max from pilots.
  9. I have always had an interest in aviation. I was a pilot when younger though unfortunately not very good or i would have taken that career path. For those interested , a suggested link https://www.airlinepilotcentral.com/ Surprised it is open as they are quite candid. Not sure what to say about the Max at this time. Paris Air show Anyone?
  10. Sorry, not sure how this works but before i switched to a postpaid plan, i would hand a Thai Girl my phone at the Beer Garden and she would put in some numbers and extend my validity for up to one year. If i top up i only got 1 month. If you stop at a DTAC office they could explain or extend your phone for a year.
  11. I heard that and about the shadows. But i could. not see that. I have never had binocular vision and thus no depth perception. I was a pretty good student pilot until a night landing and was going to slam the plane from 20 feet. The IP knew the problem and told me to look out the side window to get my bearings. Ok with all that fluff just wanted to bury that an agency can make this problem go away. I did not want to say it to loudly.
  12. Also recommend Tic Toc, passed the depth perception test only by blind luck. Asked what will happen in 2 years when i get that license and i cannot pass it." It will be ok."
  13. Thanks Evil , very much appreciated , a better alternative to the pies at the Soi 6 Corner bar. Though they are good. Andy i know a bit OT. I remember you , Flo and i sat with Larry , a bit long ago. You guys went to Phuket while i was going to Bali. So we never spent time together, I hope not the same in August. .I am going to a wedding late August . Hope you are coming early August
  14. I live in Thailand and primarily eat Indian. Zaika is the best but some issues . i like the Thalii at Everest. If anyone can point me to a good Indian Restaurant , much appreciated . I know about Karma and it is good but prefer spicy.
  15. Evil, Terrific. Thanks for the review, I have long not understood while there is an Indian restaurant ,still my favorite cuisine, every 100 meters there is almost no Chinese.I am a frequent visitor to the Corner Bar Soi 6. Could you point me to Shaxian? Thanks, Bill
  16. 'Andy , you know i'm a pretty friendly guy. Crazy happy to be living in Thailand and smile spontaneously about it all the time. Ill give the Russian lesson a go. Yujin , this has also been my experience with unhappy people in general. The last reminds me when i was staying on a Greek island for a month on off-off season, no one else staying on the beach. I would go drinking with the owner of the only restaurant on the beach. After many libations we would break out singing "No women no cry. No Ouzo yes cry".
  17. It looks like the boat in Force' 4 picture is where they are getting the sand. My son is a Civil Engineer and said he doesn't know much about these projects (builds bridges) except they don't work. A shame about the water quality. I live on the beach Soi 18 Naklua. Was looking forward to getting some snorkeling equipment. A neighbor said don't bother. He tried it and there were long streaks of petroleum underwater. Even avoiding them he still had the taste of it in his mouth.
  18. My condo has 80 floors divided between 2 towers . Mostly hi-so Russian families with impressive cars. I've been here for over a year and have only met 2 other English speakers. Ivan has not been very friendly , maybe just a language difference. More likely the alley cats i drag in and out on a regular basis. I have not been a good Ambassador of America here.
  19. Jacko i almost did that. Was on a ME OA so could have gotten another year. On the 90 day at Jomtien i talked with an IO . He said your coming in at 2200 and your visa ends 0000. Bad idea , get an extension now. Sorry about the Eva thing. My holidays here were short so smoothly getting here was important. I always fly ANA. A few more $$ but outstanding service . Several years ago some problem and we had to return to Tokyo almost mid flight. We arrived to Narita which was closed that time of night/morning. Greeted by many ANA staff bowing and apologizing for the problem. I'm thinking
  20. Just another positive vote for Nams. Had a pickup at BKK, then later at the American Tavern in Bangkok. A very nice Suv even though just the sedan price. Told her i would be with friends and did not care what time we left. So with that vague time and that the Tavern location is not well known, everything was well confirmed and on the agreed time. To the BM who promoted her service , thanks. But i have used the Tims, T's , Gone to the arrivals and grab a drop off, the bad service from the airport taxis with the towel over the meter. The somebodies girlfriend, wife, special brother . Thai Li
  21. Being an American i don't know what many of those things are. But if you want to know where to find them or like items, Villa Market. The only thing i miss from the US is crab cakes. Everything else i can pretty much find or duplicate. I'm back in the states this week and my first stop is to get a crab cake. Not Asian, Callinectes Sapidus.
  22. Jacko, you remind me of Cheshire Tom, Straight shooter , no bs. When you ask am if i am sure ?I listen A rental not buying. Should i reconsider? Why. What happened to CT? He stopped posting. Never met him and my loss.
  23. "With all this in mind, my last hotel break was with a lady so I asked her to use her identity card for check in. 'I was never there your honour'. " Atlas, i like this thanks. I have inadvertently started a LT relationship with a girl in Bangkok. My hotel bill was such i decided to get a condo there. I am not leaving Pattaya .Better for her close to work , i can come and go as i want. When i get back from US next month will put the condo in her name not mine. I do so much like girls that go to work in the morning.
  24. I'll continue with my plan to wander up there. Sorry to hear about your ordeal Jacko. Recently went to Jomtien on a Monday morning thinking "this is a bad idea". But completed the 90 day and an extension in an hour, returned the next day ,picked up the extension and a multi entry in less than an hour .No way to predict. If you fly out of Dulles in DC there is a phone app showing wait times on both the north and south TSA areas
