  1. Thank you guys I will look out for them when next in town.
  2. Egg and Banana Rotti are these a real thing? I just watched a video of this girl in Bangkok making these Egg and Banana Rottis and they look delicious, is there such a thing in Pattaya as I would love to try some on my next visit.
  3. If you can get a mate to lend you his Sky Go password there is a host of great TV there, including Game of Thrones, and a VPN should let you watch in Pattaya. I don't know that that will work but I keep hearing from people who know more about it than me who say it will. The new House of Dragons is also bloody good.
  4. Having looked, a little more closely, I can get a flight on Turkish for £463 and on Austrian and Swiss for £503 for my dates. Dont fancy Turkish so probably Austrian and Swiss.
  5. THAT IS TAKING THE PISS . I wanted a return and that was what I was quoted. I will have to look closer in future . But last time I flew with them the £380 - £420 was the price I was paying.
  6. Just go on Qatar air web site and put in, 10 May to 10 June. I did try to copy the page, but it did not work. prices are from £377.88 and up business £1683.32, and first £3499. These are the lowest prices I could find on that site I have not even tried the cheap ticket mobs as yet. These prices are from London Gatwick. On looking further there is a £1575 business fare but on a 22 hour total flight
  7. I can only advise on my personal experience, so here goes, everywhere you stay for a month in Thailand will charge for water and power the exact price you should ask about before booking and always check the meter. So far, and I hope I am not pushing my luck, I have not been disappointed with my choices especially when I take into consideration the prices I payer before and at the end of your stay. same thing with Wi-Fi, ask. AirBnB do not charge deposits AFAIK and I am a seasoned user on 3 continents. As for legal issues I have no idea what those might be but if the landlord is letting a plac
  8. Having sat in the bar for many long hours I can only remember the next door as the Devils den on the right, facing the bar, and a nail or hair shop on the left. Mind you II have not been in almost 3 years.
  9. I have done a little more research on prices and for a month in May-June the prices on Qatar are from £380 to £410, so a massive saving on the £1000 quid for this month . I still can't fathom why this is so much different.
  10. I think I will just wait till the low season, when I normally come, and hope for some better deals in may and june.
  11. I find that the cheap option always work for me so that's what I am looking for,but there seems no flights that meet those factors and at a £1000 for a flight I am not going. The most I ever paid was around the £500 for EVA premium economy and I swore I would never use their "premium" service again as it was not worth the £100 extra. Things will either get back to some semblance of normality or my Thai adventures have come to an end. Over the last few years, pre covid, I have paid between £360 and £480 per return and whilst those were generally in April or May I have found nothing even remotel
  12. Yes Granted there are problems butI seem able to get fares not much more than before for other destinations.
  13. Is it just covid or something else that is making fares rocket upwards. The cheapest for me if I go this month is approx. £1000, or is there something else going on I know nothing about.
  14. Going only on the pics you posted and seeing the pics of the AirBnB places they are just as nice. But if as you say you don't have a long vacation, then it's probably easier in a hotel, but I like my long, summer long, vacations and the AirBnB s are a very good option with most of the lower priced options being very good and some of the higher priced places being great.
  15. I think that place looks good, but at £50 a night Its IMHO a fair bit overpriced and anyone paying £100 has far too much money. There are many really good AirBnB places just as nice for £10-15 a night if you are staying a month.
  16. Hi .all It seems Raj is again working at the Golf Club or was earlier in the year ,so if anyone is actually in town and goes into the bar please let Raj know I was asking about him. It might just be that he has lost his laptop because of the covid problems and has no access to his old contacts , so if anyone can speak to him Then remind him of Jack and looking on facebook that my actual facebook name is John McGill. If anyone does speak to him I could relay my email .
  17. I was a regular at the golf club for a couple of years mainly due to knowing one of the wait staff for almost 20 years. Raj Kumar worked there and was very well liked by the customers but because of the pandemic was I believe sent home to Myanmar, and I seem to have lost all contact with him. Does anyone know what happened to Raj or where he is because I can't get a reply on the web and whilst I know there was a problem with the internet in Myanmar, because of the army and the coup, any info would be very helpful, Thanks
  18. I have used Pool hustler quite a few times and found him and his bikes to be diamond. Last time there I managed first to arrive on the wrong day, but he brought my bike right over and second, he brought me a spare key very quickly when I thought I had lost it, a very nice security man had it and kept it until he came back on the night shift so he could ask me for a tip for "Finding" it the night before in my bike, no issues at all. Well worth using him and I will continue to use him every time I am in Patts
  19. I have only ever been in your bar a couple of times but it was always a good night out. Enjoy the anniversary and I hope its a great night .
  20. I am in general a fan of markets ,at least before my walking difficulties, but the covered markets in Thailand (and Turkey) in summer are far too warm for my delicate constitution.
  21. If you don’t pay your exorcist, do you get repossessed?
  22. My Dear Wife, You will surely understand that I have certain needs that you, being 57 years old, can no longer satisfy. I am very happy with you and I value you as a good wife. Therefore, after reading this letter, I hope that you will not wrongly interpret the fact that I will be spending the evening with my 18 year old secretary at the Comfort Inn Hotel. Please don't be upset----I shall be home before midnight. When the man came home late that night, he found the following letter on the dining room table: My Dear Husband, I received your letter and thank you for your honesty about my
  23. thats the way to do it , make your hard work paying the mortgage pay off when you need it too.
  24. I have a 3 bed house here in the UK but I moved downstairs 10 years ago because I could no longer do the stairs without a lot of pain so I live in what was my living dining room which is about 30 metres sq.I have a separate kitchen and a small wet room but my living space is not much bigger than the 32 meter condos in Pattaya and I am quite happy living in the small space which is great because I rent out the upstairs of my home as a i bed flat ,having built a kitchen in the small bedroom. So basically what I am saying is not everyone wants or needs a lot of space to live a simple life on your
