  1. The old airport in Hong Kong was a hoot too. http://www.squidoo.com/kai-tak
  2. Thanks mate. I take a sequence of adjoining photos, making sure there is some detail shared between each pair of adjacent photos, then use a software package called Autostitch to join them. Free download here: http://cvlab.epfl.ch/~brown/autostitch/autostitch.html
  3. A summary of the weather as of about 15 minutes ago: The thunder was mostly coming from a thunderstorm cell I figure was not far from Laem Chabang. Over Pattaya (photo right) it appears to be raining pretty steadily. Here in Jomthien (center, photo left) we've had intermittent showers. Presently we're having a moderate strength shower with the sun attempting to poke its way out at the same time.
  4. Great! Hope you enjoy. Please let us know your impressions.
  5. Yep, that's the special I mention in my review! Not to be missed!
  6. Agree Ron. It's too bad Pete's board persona isn't more like his real-life personality. Of course, the same could be said about me...
  7. By all means, would be interested in your impressions.
  8. By the way people, "thedodger" turns out to be Pete/Poggle/Darkside, so his remarks should be considered in that light. I doubt he's even been to Thailand since HR opened in fact. Any mod who saw fit to remove his remarks from this thread would have my gratitude.
  9. When you consider the many ways restaurants have of making it look like they've given you more food than they have, coming across a place that actually gives a good portion size of the main course is quite refreshing.
  10. I don't like when restaurants stack the plate with fries and other stuff to try distracting you from the tiny main course. In this case the steak was nice and big; I don't even think I finished the fries.
  11. Got this from Ron at HR: Kitchen is 11:00 to 10:00 PM Sun-Thursday and open till 11 PM on Friday and Saturday. Those are the minimum hours and quite often we will stay open later or open earlier if a major event is on the boob tube! Bar is open to WHENEVER! Never closes before Midnight!
  12. Thanks for the comments guys. About the opening hours, I've e-mailed Ron to ask. The website has their e-mail address and phone number. They also have a Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=1495...8196&v=wall
  13. Understood. I'm sure next time you'll get what you want. To be absolutely positive, you can chat with Craig or Ron and they'll make sure your order is filled correctly.
  14. The owner of the place used to be the Asia area President for Planet Hollywood, so he probably has a handle on the PR. It's a matter of taste mate. I personally prefer them thick and not as well cooked. If you ordered it "well" and it came still pink in the middle, you could have tried sending it back. There you would have no problem with the staff complaining. Also try "VERY well done" that might work!
  15. Again, not sure when you were there but it was only soft-open until recently and they hadn't started advertising until recently. It's in a residential area to be sure, but I think Ron wanted to include residents in his clientele so it made sense. Next time, simply order the burger "well done". I actually prefer my burgers medium or medium rare. Each to his own mate. Cheers. Get back to us with your impressions. No, not a girlie bar. BYOLBFM all the way. Cheers mate. Hope you enjoy.
  16. A couple of months ago Mr. and Mrs. Axeslinger planned a trip to Ayutthaya. Knowing Lady Mangosteen is from there, they asked if we'd like to go with them. We gratefully accepted. It was also agreed that we should book into a hotel for a night in Bangkok and visit Stargazer in his new gaff, Home Run Bar and Grill. http://homerunbangkok.com HR is a sports themed bar and grill with the decor accent on baseball. The basic plan of the bar is an open downstairs bar area with a separate upstairs dining room. The full menu is available in both areas of the bar. You enter to a row of t
  17. Sorry you can't make it mate. Understand about the work night. Wednesday night is the night before I'm leaving for the US, and I plan a quiet one with the GF. Have a great Christmas and New Years. BTW, having dinner with Andy tonight.
