  1. I'm glad my visa is Non Imm O-B. They'll probably forget about guys like me. I deserve a break for paying taxes six years.
  2. All Good Things (in honor of Robert Durst)
  3. As long as I came all this way via taxi, intercity buses aren't operating, I thought I'd spend a few days at the Banyan Tree on Sathorn Ave, about a 30 minute walk to the main entrance of Lumpini Park, halfway between the German and Malaysian embassies. I booked the VIP package including breakfast, thousand baht per day food and beverage credit (excluding alcohol), early check-in/late check-out, daily fruit plate, and room upgrade. Most impressive was the huge bathroom, as large as the living room. Nice view from
  4. Terminal 21 was open in the basement for the grocery store. Over at Soi Cowboy, people seemed happy to see a farang. Carry Out at Pala Some freelancers about but I don't think I wish to partake in any p4p until I've been fully vaccinated, just thinking about all the viruses I've collected from the girls over the years. Construction next to Q House progressing briskly. Across the street on Soi 7 it's lagging behind
  5. Came to town for my first Covid jab, hadn't been in Bangers for four months. Since there's a 9 PM curfew I knew I would be spending most of my time in the room so I booked a nice crib. I don't think they had many guests because the girls at the front desk knew my name before I handed them my passport at check-in. The hotel has direct access to the Nana BTS Rooms are decent size, the hotel opened about two years ago. Rates were 7000 per night when it opened, about 5600 pre-covid. I enjoyed the 60-inch TV but wasn't impressed by a lack
  6. I had an appointment today at MedPark hospital in Bangkok. I got AZ and was in and out in an hour. Second appointment is 12 weeks from now.
  7. I received an appointment in august from this Bangkok hospital https://www.medparkhospital.com/en/page/covid19-vaccine-expats
  8. Yeah, I'll be on their website at 9 AM. Don't let Bullfrog know you jumped the queue
  9. I managed to register at Samitivej Hospital, one of the top hospitals for medical tourism, for a free jab in September. The next day they closed registration until next month.
  10. Sorry to hear, a very stressful time for business owners. I hope he’s well soon.
  11. Chu’s, in the Exchange Tower, one of my favorite places for breakfast with their smoked salmon eggs Benedict, has shut down permanently, another victim of the pandemic. I featured Chu’s on the first page of this thread. For lunch and/or dinner, the pasta dishes were good too. Chu’s will be missed, it served fine meals for twelve years. https://www.reuters.com/world/asia-pacific/coronavirus-curbs-shutter-thousands-bangkok-restaurants-2021-06-03/
  12. By the looks of things, bars in Pattaya will be opening before Bangkok, and not for a while yet. Soapies are closed where I am so I’m heading back to Koh Chang for a few weeks. I’ll do a week on Koh Kood as well. There’s been only one covid case per day being detected in the Trat Province, very few tourists, and room rates are currently lowest I’ve seen. Escape to paradise. ?️
  13. They need to open up the bars. Here’s a water monitor in a 7-11 store looking for a 6-pack of Chang.
  14. I can’t do the online 90-day report because my TM47 is 10 years old and not accepted by the system. I used registered mail when I lived in Bangkok since it took 90 minutes to get to Chang Wattana. Where I am now, it’s not much of a problem and only takes a few minutes in person, 15 minutes to get to the office. Last time I was 5 days late and they didn’t bother to assess the penalty. They have landlords and hotels reporting foreigners staying now so they don’t need this, makes a lot of sense to eliminate it.
  15. See my camera thread to see more of her
