  1. Went last year, Adam and the cast were terrific. The hall is a good place to see the performances. Unfortunately will be out of town during this year's production.
  2. I came by but couldn't find a seat! Well done Jason. I like 3Som Bar more and more each week.
  3. What's the food menu? Might drop by with a few board members and take some photos.
  4. What is the total premium you pay? What is the name of your package please? Plug for my agent: PCD Consultants. Inga Dohlson 0814298920
  5. Try PCD Consultants on 3rd Road. See Inga Dohlson 0814298920
  6. Not seen and I have been looking at all the malls and beyond. However, Thai Thai is bland and overpriced Thai food. The best Thai often comes from little hole in the wall restaurants.
  7. Northpoint Condos soi 18 Naklua throws their annual bash complete with free food, ice sculptures, a live band/dancers, and A FREE OPEN BAR! The fireworks at midnight is amazing too and the party is well guarded as there are many big wigs there. The level of hot girls from Bangkok is always staggering. As the booze is free, they are nice and lubricated by 10pm. I will be attending with a few board members. To join us and be on the guest list, send me a PM around Christmas.
  8. Seek confirmation yourself but I believe retirement (if you qualify by being over 50) or education visas are the less stressful visas where you do not have to make visas runs. Stay in Thailand without leaving Thailand.
  9. Just trying to enlarge the board's range. New Thai related topics are better than no topics. Some other Pattaya boards have new topics sprouting up before you can say Thai Corruption.
  10. Tropical storm warning issued for parts of Thailand At 10.00 a.m. today, Tropical Storm “Noul” in the middle South China Sea was centered about 500 km east of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam or lat 11.5 °N, long 111.0 °E , with sustained winds of 75 km/hr. It is moving westwards with a speed of 18 km/hr. The storm is expected make landfall to lower Vietnam by tomorrow. More rains are likely in the lower Northeast, the East and the South of Thailand. The prevailing northeast monsoon over Thailand Gulf will strengthen with wave above 2 meters. All ships should proceed with caution during 18-21 November. Another surge of nearly intense high pressure system from China has covered lower China. It will then cover upper Thailand by tomorrow and impact on the Northeast first. This causes cooler weather and 2-4 °C drops respectively.
  11. A few months ago, I came to my senses and realized that without a Thai driving license, I could not get insured and paying bribes was becoming redundant. So I went to the office on highway 36 early in the morning and shuffled along with the other "fallangs" to do the color, distance, and reaction tests. Then it was downstairs to watch a video made in the 1980s about road safety. Then back upstairs to take a computerized multiple choice test. I failed by 4. The good thing about the test is that the computer shows you the correct answers for the questions you answered incorrectly. I tried my best to memorize those. I found the questions ambiguous and I felt several of the answers were possibilities. The good thing about being a failure is that you can come back in the afternoon and try again. Failing that, come back tomorrow for another 2 chances (TiT). I passed in the afternoon and then was led out back to do the driving test. That was funny because we are tested as a group. As long as you don't fall off your bike, you pass. 20 minutes later, I walked away with my new plastic driving license @ 105 baht for 1 year. The license can only be renewed once the initial license expires (TiT) and then it's for 5 years @ 500 baht. In my herd of foreigners, there were some very old guys who failed at least one of the color, distance, and reaction tests but he can come back later in the day. There were some other guys who didn't speak any English at all. Just German or French. I reckon there's no chance these guys could pass the theory. Anyone with any experiences?
  12. Soi dogs are here to stay in my opinion. For years I've heard TAT and lawmakers alike talk until they are blue in the face saying they want to "do something" about the overpopulation. I don't believe it because there's just as many dogs now as there were years ago. I know there are organizations like Tony (of Tony's gym/disco fame) who has an enclosure in Udon Thani but the majority are still here. I cannot say there is a difference. I think if there was a bounty incentive, the problem would disappear over night. Do you consider the stray population a problem? They will only multiple in numbers until we as a society are taken over. I am already learning how to communicate with dogs so that when they do overtake us, I can be seen as part of the pack and reap those benefits. You can never be too prepared. But seriously, do you want to see them shipped to a neighboring country for dinner or not? I do. Ask anyone who keeps their windows open at night. Likely to receive the same answer.
  13. Funny question although it could so easily become a reality. You are driving your car or bike with a female passenger (a bar girl for argument's sake) and are stopped by the police. She has yabba pills and you are then accused of being a trafficker or worse. On another day, you unsuspectingly pay for your groceries with a counterfeit 1000 baht note and are arrested. Like most tourists, you don't have 3rd party insurance when driving a motorcycle. You are in an accident and accidentally kill someone. Have you ever thought who you would call first from the police station? Would you immediately try to cut a deal by yourself? I have a few friends here. I would first call the tourist police volunteers I know personally. Then I would call Tony Justice of Magna Carta Law Firm 0819833964 who knows me. You?
  14. Great promo until you showed the sweaty punter. Maybe he won't be there when I visit.
  15. The following site seems easy enough to understand. http://www.seat61.com/Thailand.htm
