' What is surprising is the area still had flood waters during last Friday's storm that were high enough to force the closure of Sukhumvit.' 

You shouldnt be surprised, I have been waiting 20 years for them to solve the flooding problem. At least it provides a regular employment opportunity!

Last batch of pics from Pattaya Tai to Buakhao and ending on 3rd Rd.

So quiet and social distancing in Big-CX.   I believe this used to be an 'Erotic Massage' place on Soi Buakhao, perhaps recently mentioned by @tallguy it is no more. Also Ne

Had a fair bit of rain this afternoon. Looking down Soi 13 towards Buakhao. Looking back up Soi 13. I can think of better places to enjoy a drink.   Buakhao view to the north Bu

Don't even have the option of walking in the gutter with all the bikes and cars parked up. Only way to do it is share a lane with traffic.

Amazes me the number of pedestrians that having to share a lane with traffic will walk on the side in the same direction as traffic. And don't get me started on the doofuses that walk hand and hand with their teelack with their back to traffic. They're just inviting a bad day.

That is the way Thais walk on the roads with traffic to there backs, the first time I walked with wife on a road I told her we are walking on the wrong side of the road we should be facing the traffic, she said NO if you have a accident on that side of the road the insurance won't pay.

Crazy the stuff Thai hear, believe and repeat to others as gospel truth.

Just got back from my morning ride and was going to post the Tue/Fri market on Buakhao is now empty land. Good thing I had a look on another forum first as there was a post with pictures of it having moved to the other side of the road. I was so focused on the empty land, never thought to look across the road.

The dogs were barking up a storm this morning at an early morning visitor on my neighbor's roof. First time in 10 years I've seen a monkey in the neighborhood.

Quite a bit more damage on the beach after last night's storm compared to a the storm damage from a week and a half ago. This time the damage was along the entire length of the beach.

Somebody finally got smart and lined a channel to keep more of the beach from washing away. Something they should have done from the very beginning. All they need now to make this a workable solution is build a foot bridge across the channel.

Well Everyone knew the work on the drains was a waste of time.

I don't believe there is a cost effective solution to handling the amount of rain dumped by a tropical storm. Best they can hope for is to drain the flood waters as quickly as possible. That seems to have been accomplished in most of the areas where the flood waters used to linger for close to a day. Now the flood waters are gone within the space of a couple of hours.

Might be an English/American style " All you can eat " buffet,or a

Chinese style " Eat as much as you can " buffet. 😋

I can certainly go along with it being aimed at a Chinese market, or maybe a domestic one. Just appears ambitious.
