  1. Good news for investors. I have acquired a considerable supply of "other", "miscellaneous", and "hmmm...not sure" to quadruple production. Send cash in 1000B notes (minimum 100) to Shyster McChemist 123 What The Hell Are Those Pills Street c/o Near the Dumpster Behind the Food Mart and Only between 3 and 5 a.m. Pattaya With your name and contact details. And your tolerance to "hmmmm....not sure". For testing.
  2. "Negro" rap? Were you there in 1965 and it was a bar in Alabama?
  3. I am starting a Thai small business and looking for investors. I have secured a good amount of "etc." so we can get a pill machine and make Black Aunt, and a companion drug, Black Uncle.
  4. If it is cheaper than generic Viagra and you trust whatever Mongolian quonset hut factory its made in, Black Ant is still just a dose of Viagra with a list of nonsense other ingredient allegedly added. You have to like a list of ingredients that just adds "etc." at the end of the line probably due to no room to add more yak penises and hippocampuses.
  5. It's Eva Air's duty to buy a replacement ticket even on a competitor assuming you can reach them which seems to be more than difficult. On another site someone said they were rebooked outbound to Bangkok on BA via London from LAX, and the same class of service (PE) that they had on Eva. After even a couple of days it has to be nigh impossible to manage all these people, the worst cases people stranded away from home vs. not having left yet.
  6. They have cancelled all flights until June 28 though if they settle they would restore some, somehow. Offering refunds, apparently hours or days for e-mail reply, 800# jammed, people stranded all over hell's half acre. I don't think they are working too hard putting passengers on other airlines, certainly not BA which is not Star Alliance.
  7. If you are Chinese they are in Chinese, etc. And there is an animation that a child could follow. Still the two ladies ahead of me a couple weeks ago were complete tools at it with several attempts. And then her husband with 5 more people in the line (no doubt 5X useless at it given a chance) one over asks me if he and they can cut ahead of me. He stayed in his line as you can imagine.
  8. This is when my stealth motorcycle (aka my bicycle) will shine.
  9. 4 pm to 2:30 a.m. each day both Saturday and Sunday no traffic on Beach Road, from Dusit curve to south of Central Festival so assuming this music fest has been staged before on Beach Road, what do the baht buses do? 3rd Road? They go north to the dolphin roundabout but have to get back south somehow or Naklua will have 2,000 stranded buses in about 2 hours.
  10. Most of us sleep 8-10 hours, some commute 1-2 hours, some work where personal electronics are not allowed in the workplace for 4-5 hours at a stretch, and yet we all survive 5, 10, 15 hours with no wifi. Read a book, watch a movie and connect when you land. I get offered free wifi in business and first class and I don't use it. More to life than Facebook. I was sitting across from Red Point today on a really tired looking Soi 6 due to lack of punters. 100% of the girls were sitting out front with their noses buried in phones for IG or FB or whatever. Not appealing if one feels you are interrupting them.
  11. On their pricing page you can see B1,200. It will be interesting to see how long they are able do this as the immigration officer (not the ladies at the entrance who take the FT card) wanted my boarding pass.
  12. I get my bike tomorrow and Rubber Land beckons. Better be some Trojans there.
  13. I arrived at 10:50 and was 3rd in line in Fast Track. Despite there being instructions in the language of the passenger and an animated diagram as to what to do, the two in front of me were faced with their own personal Rubik's Cube. Then when I am the next to go, this guy in the longer next line, who was related to the two before me asked if I'd mind if he and 4 of his group went ahead of me. Yes I mind and no they didn't. 5 more people baffled by a piece of glass is too much. They may still be in the line. From door open on the plane to the hotel in Pattaya 2 hours and 10 minutes which has to be a record. Including DTAC in the luggage area with two really cute DTAC girls. Same prices as outside but with no lineup.
  14. I fear he prepaid for this and the cash is sunk. Prepaying for hotels is the equivalent of buying the basic fly or else airfare saving 3% in the process and having no ability to bail out. I see on the map it's walking distance to Rubber Land, might be very low cost condoms there. I wound up on Suk 46/3 once by accident on my bike and this is around there but wow not great access to anything familiar. Apart from Rubber Land which I now want to go to.
  15. I suggest for non emergency treatment you send a message to Gavin Wadell at Phyathai hospital in Sriracha. He coordinates expat treatment e.g. those who pay cash. You're met by a nurse and translator, see a specialist on the dot in time, front of the line to imaging and in and out PDQ. It's not that far. I used Mr. T. I sent an SMS at 2 pm and had an 11 am appointment the next day. I saw a neurologist, perfect English, had a CT scan, got an OK, pills, DVD and all in an hour for $250. If you're going to get an imaging study you may as well have an expert tell you what they see. If you're not seen by an MD regularly they do monthly promotion deals of dozens of tests for big discounts. An email a month. I got good emergency treatment at Pattaya Memorial for a dog bite, but nowhere as white glove or any cheaper than Phyathai.
