  1. I see from the hotel website that a makeover was done in 2017 and I was wondering if it has indeed changed for the better. From what I remember,the pool area now looks different. How about the room furnishings or the restaurant for a quick bite if I'm too lazy,hungover or its raining.(Yes,I know delivery is available from outside sources).
  2. I think I was very restrained in my reply. I'm in my late 60's and suffered a stroke recently. My grammar is not always going to be perfect. I make typos and attempt to correct them when I see them So he can "f"-off as far as I'm concerned.
  3. Seriously,correcting grammar? WTH is your problem?
  4. Or if JFK will return to it's former name,Idlewild ,after the Idlewild Beach Golf Course that it displaced.
  5. Great first post!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for coming onboard. How about an introduction.
  6. I was probably thinking back to my grades in college in the late '60s/early'70s. I used to stop at the food court for a bite before heading to Mass at the intersection of Sukhumvit and a block north.Also,if you're walking as I was,as soon as you make a left,there was a very good shop that sold towels and whatnot for the bedroom. I bought several there. I arrive 22 weeks from today in case any of you were planning a "Welcome Back" party in my honor. Dinner my 1st night and a few other nights will be at Tsunami Sushi (not a buffet in the strictest sense) Buffet on 3rd Rd. As an added bonus,it's a very short walk from the hotel.
  7. Looking at the map, I see Carrefour on Klang is now not Big C Plus, but Massive C Plus.
  8. Not just Thailand but 200+ countries. In the US, Sprint, Verizon, and US Cellular use CDMA. AT&T and T-Mobile use GSM. New phones can use both networks using dual SIMs. Some are preparing for the early introduction of 5G. But I usually keep my absurdly priced phones for 3 years,so I expect when I buy again,5G will be fully implemented and all phones will be capable by then.
  9. WiFi not necessary. Times have changed drastically in the past 2 years regarding what is offered when traveling abroad. I get unlimited free talk,text and web in Canada and Mexico (surrounding countries) from T-Mobile. I have a few unlocked smartphones I prefer to carry when abroad that I prefer to use than carrying a brand new iPhone. Some places I will use it in Patts but not everywhere. That is the reason I asked which carrier SIM is best deal for calls only. I was with 1 2 Call a decade ago. "With T-Mobile ONE™, you get unlimited texting and data at up to 2G speeds in 210+ countries and destinations—all at no extra cost".
  10. I will just need a Thai SIM for calls. Will that make a difference which local SIM I choose? My US phone has unlimited data and text.
  11. I remember Central Festival being open with the food court on the bottom floor and the temperature cold enough to hang meat in the theater and the potential disease possibility of small fish eating dead skin from your feet outside the mall outside the 2nd Road entrance. Funny what I remember 10 years down the road. I'll make stops at 21 and Central Marina for sure.

  14. I live in Florida,so the beach bar is pretty high. This was my view 1 day after the last hurricane passed in Sept 2017. Come to find out the golf course behind my house had blocked 2 drains on my street-bastards (who are now facing lawsuits).
