Never knew who owned it, but it sure looked out of place empty like that. I would not have sneaked in there for a pee though, all sorts  of dodgy characters hanging about there, apparently you were one of them. Was there a pumpkin house in North Pattaya or did I imagine it a few times?

Please don't start me on pumpkins... I am trying to get my male flower to shag my female flower to make a baby but they don't seem to get horny at  the same time....Maybe tomorrow morning...

Looks like the Nirun area market has been successful enough they're ready to start on an addition.

How old is this pic? I remember this guy from Soi 8 back in the day. I thought that he had passed away.

Yes, he was found dead in a skip.

Always felt bad for this bloke, he was dealt a pretty crap hand in the first place, abused by people all his life, then died in a rubbish bin. That sucks whichever way you look at it.

I hope that wherever he is now, he is enjoying an existence somewhat more pleasant and rewarding.

I was also under the impression that he died a good few years ago (when Cherry Bar was still on Soi 8). However, a recent thread elsewhere suggested he was still alive in Samui or Phuket. Seems a bit unlikely, but who knows?

I heard he died while Cherry Bar was on Soi 8, as I seem to remember it was Adam who reported it to the board, as one of his staff found him.

Odd how these people find themselves remembered by so many others. Pale face Lady, Glitter Man and the guy in the pic whom I always thought was called "Tony". They all have their own stories, sometimes interesting but sadly in many cases, tragic.

Well, Glitter Man is still with us - I've seen him a few times in the last year, cycling around Merton in South West London.

I remember his face. Did he sell dresses?

I remember saying to Adam one time that I hadn't seen Bird, (I think that was his name), around for a while. A short time after Adam told me that the girls had told him that Bird had died. I don't remember being told that it was one of Cherry Bar staff that found him, but it is a long time ago now.

I was told by the taxi guys on the corner next to Nirun they're building a 7-11. Couldn't be happier as it will save me a walk of about 100m to the other one nearby. :default_biggrin:

It looks a fair sized plot.....I wonder if it is gonna have a nice outside seating area like the "boat" 7/11 on Pattaya Tai.....

Looks like another large structure is going up on the Soi Xzyte grounds. Some beautiful, blue skies today too.

The foundation pillars aren't very deep, so it won't be a tall, heavy structure.

Perhaps another one of these

The parts for the 7-11 were delivered this morning. They have the building of 7-11's down to a science, so it'll be interesting to see how many days from the pouring of the footings to the grand opening.

Five days ago the 7-11 construction site was a stack of 7-11 parts. And today the site looks like this.

I rode down there yesterday on the bike having my teeth chipped.... why does Arunothia need so many 7-11s?

I presume that truck is stuck being rear wheel drive?

Good question on why so many 7-11's. This would be no. 4 in a span of 350 m,  if all the others stay open.

I watched the guy backing in. He was really working it to get as close to the building as possible for unloading. I think he didn't care about getting stuck as off to the left was a tracked backhoe that he probably planned on using to get himself unstuck.

'They have the building of 7-11's down to a science, so it'll be interesting to see how many days from the pouring of the footings to the grand opening."

We live just off Arunothai, near Big C Extra. Went back to Philippines for 2 months and when we returned what had been a lot with a building on it was now an open Family Mart which had been trading for a while

Thanks for the photos. I can't wait for when the team parade the trophy around Liverpool.
