  1. If you are flying MAS beware of flight changes. They messed me round last year, changed outbound flights three weeks from departure, then changed back two weeks out except the initial flight changing my stop over from 2 hours to 10 hours. Changed my return flight to include 24 hour stop over at KLIA from a 3 hour stop over while I was mid trip. I cancelled and used a different airline for my return as I had other things to do.
  2. Australia won both men's and women's world cup finals. This kept parts of Australia happy, other parts did not it was happening.
  3. At one time it was a go-go / night club, not very inspiring, think I lasted about half a beer.
  4. Last time I stayed there (pre COVID), there were none in the room. Not sure they would have invested the needed money in the mean time if they didn't spend the money when there was a good cash flow.
  5. The cultural disapproval of masturbation in western society comes from the christian church's desire to control all parts of daily life. The christian church decided that sex and anything to do with sexual pleasure was evil, the "original sin" was sex and sexual pleasure.This goes into the idea that abstention as a way to glorify their god for the priest class has gone well for them In cultures that are accepting of sex and sexual pleasure as a part of life also tend to see masturbation as a part of a normal sex life.
  6. The bike path around Lake Mabprachan is a work in process. Starting at the dam wall it currently goes all the way to the "Pong park" with a running track parallel to most of it. I went around the barrier across the path into the park, then out the other end through the car park. This leads to the road for a coupe of hundred metres, then there is the track that leads from the far end of the dam wall, most of this is tarmac, however it stops or starts (depending on your direction of travel,) abruptly. Access to this part coming from the Pong park requires venturing through a drain with some wate
  7. Another trap, is the fees that the sending bank want to charge. This might be an Australian thing (one reason why Au banks are some of the most profitable in the world), when I was transferring from my Au bank to Thailand, I would specify that the transfer was to go in AUD as the exchange rate that the bank offered was terrible compared with what the Thai bank offered, as a result they upped the transfer fee about $10, not a significant thing if there is a large amount involved, but the difference in exchange rate was significant.
  8. From a personal opinion, there are a few folk to get the memo that a customer needs to be nurtured. Mr Egg and his crew have it right, on the other hand... I was wandering around Jomtien looking for some company, there were bars with ladies most had no or one customer, it seems that the use by date for bar workers has has blown out from mid 30's ish to, will wear a dress and has a pulse. There are some out there who should really be collecting the pension. So, while on my research trip I ended up at a bar with five ladies and no customers, with several looking OK. I stopped for a d
  9. It is best to have the money transferred into your Thai bank account with the reason for the transfer being for the purchase of property. When the transfer arrives you need to get some paperwork from the receiving bank (Tor Tor Tor ?) that states the transfer is for purchase of property, this way when the property is sold you can transfer the funds out of Thailand. There are all sorts of issues about transferring money out of Thailand without the paperwork, the government wants the money to stay in the country. You may also want to send the money in 2 transfers with the second one being l
  10. That is exactly why I posted. I also noticed nothing new but your announcements. I figured you would like something from a member who had logged in. Now can we have that "to the top" button please for the lazy sods like me? ?
  11. Congratulations on the upgrade Frosty. It is looking good, and I look forward to the ongoing process. Thanks for you time and effort.
  12. Isn't Sky owned by Murdoch? Might have a lot to do with the fear mongering.
  13. I was on a bus going to Ubon Ratchatani and immigration got on the bus and asked everyone for passports or Thai ID. They got to me still rummaging through my bag and decided they didn't really need to see my passport. Guess this lot were not looking for farang to harass.
  14. The recent push to increase the licence fines has had a lot of push back from the Thai populace, as a result it may be the subject to another backflip by the authorities. The law is yet to passed into law.
