  1. Stop complaining will you ?
    I have just read a thread about Arabic transgenders. Guys trolled the topic but you didn't complain about it. Sorry that it bothers you that I am still alive.

    I prefer to warn you : you've broken à cardinal rule for too long a time now. You could have apologised but you prefer to go deeper and deeper to the dark side. Bad karma. You'll be unlucky sooner or later.

  2. In order to insult me

    I must first value

    Your opinion


    Nice trolling thought.



    I felt like adding this comment anyway. given your nasty behaviour in the last 2/3 weeks, I had no shame in writing this comment. It allowed a good piece of discussion with members. BTW, reading your posts, you don't only eat dog food, you don't post, you bark. :lol:


    Is there any chance of a hotel review, for old time's sake?


    You should ask the mod to hoover all OTS's barking after my posts. This would be fair.

  3. We all have our own brand of snobbery P&G. You're clearly a food snob :)


    By the way Citrus is about 1500 baht so a bad choice if you're trying make a point.


    I've stayed in the Marriott (5k a night) but have eaten Thai food at roadside food stalls for 40 baht .... is that a better example ?


    Yes, your example is interesting. I criticize getting food at KFC in Thailand, but I also enjoy a good Thai meal at 40 bahts.

    I can be both what you call a food snob and a cheap charlie. The amount of baht I spend ain't the criteria.


    Yes, I didn't grow up in the anglo saxon culture. I am afraid what you call a food snob is seen differently in other countries, even poor ones. We're people, so we don't eat dog food. I guess that Thai people are also sensible to this point when they observe farangs.

  4. Not a fight, but given the atmosphere generated by the OP, I feel authorized to post such comments.

    I do feel amazed by the concept of "cheap charlies". It's a kind of snobbery to post that one can afford expensive hotels or drinks in expensive bars with expensive bar fines etc ... But I just point out that the same ones get food that is worse than cheap charlie's food. Yes, I prefer to go and have rest in places with empty beaches in an old hotel and get a room without AC, but I take care not to eat dog food.

    I had thought of initiating a thread on the subject, but this pic was such a strong temptation. :)

  5. No I think it's just a microwave. Unless there was something in the lower cupboards as I've never looked in them. The night market right by the BTS does cheap good food and with Tesco lotus the other side with a big food hall and also your western food outlets like KFC etc.



    Hotel : 4,000 baht and food from KFC. 55555

  6. I get a kick out of posters who claim they've never had an STD, saying "I got tested and came back clear." Or "I've never had a single symptom."


    Fact is, for most men, many STDs are asymptomatic. Sometimes you'll get a bout that will cause you pain and discomfort (the ol' pissing razorblades syndrome), but in other instances you'll be infected but won't have any symptoms. But, being infected, you'll be infecting others if you're going BB.


    This is especially a problem with HPV, which is almost always asymptomatic in men, and there's no test for HPV in men. The upside is there aren't too many risks for men, aside from ugly warts that might develop, but for GGs it's a different story. And since HPV is epidemic among sex workers (probably as close to 100% as you can get), it's a near certainty that we've all had or have HPV. And there's no treatment for HPV. The warts can be burned off, and the virus usually clears all by itself among men after a few months, but until it does, you are a carrier.


    Yes, you're right to warn about HPV. This is the only STD on can get when having protected sex, but it happens (not in Thailand as far as I was concerned). When an ugly wart shows up, you need to go and explain a doctor that you are not the wise man you look like. It's not really pleasant to have it cured with liquid nitrogen, but it's efficient.


    You will notice that old hookers often have such warts on the top of their legs.

  7. are there any phone internet contracts that runs for only 6 months? As I'll only be there for 6 months and signing a 1 year contract would be wasteful.


    I don't remember my contract, but I had taken something for one month that I had paid 8 or 900 bahts. That was not AIS. The most expensive were calls abroad.

    You shouldn't worry. Just go to a place like Century 21 and check with phone shops, you will find a good contract.

  8. Thanks to the guys who trust me. If you don't, just click on the above link and see that it's the official website of the Thai Royal Embassy in Brasil. You will find the following text in the page :
    Estrangeiros que ingressarem na Tailândia na categoria de Isenção de Visto de Turismo e que queiram sair e retornar somente poderão permanecer por um período cumulativo que não exceda 90 dias e que esteja dentro de um prazo de 6 meses a contar da data da primeira entrada. (O passaporte ou documento de viagem deverá estar válido por pelo menos 6 meses a partir da data da primeira entrada).




    I let you exercise your talents of translation. :)

  9. Nationals of the United Kingdom and over 40 other countries are eligible to travel to Thailand, for tourism purpose, with the exemption of visa and are permitted to stay in Thailand for a period of not exceeding 30 days. Therefore, you do not need a visa.

    However, please make sure that you are in possession of a passport valid for at least 6 months, a round-trip air ticket, and adequate finances equivalent to at least 10,000 Baht (150 pounds) per person or 20,000 Baht (300 pounds) per family. Otherwise, you maybe inconvenienced upon entry into the country.

    Furthermore, foreigners who enter Thailand under this Tourist Visa Exemption Scheme may re-enter and stay in Thailand for a cumulative duration of stay of not exceeding 90 days within any 6-month period from the date of first entry.



    In another Thai Embassy website, I found further explanations that be translated as follows :

    "Nationals of above quoted countries shall hold a passport whose validity is over 6 months upon arrival in Thailand, and possess an amount of money of at least 10,000 baht per person or 20,000 baht per family ...

  10. I used a private insurance only once in my life (that was actually a private branch company of my coyntry's national health service), but aren't there mutual companies or jus a Thaï social security/national health service that could cover every Thai citizen ?

  11. I flew with them back from Isaan one time, standard budget kind of airline really. I noted legroom seemed a bit less than Air Asia or Nok. In flight meal was a 3 pack of Oreos and a small water.



    Flew with them in March 2014 on a return trip to Chiang Mia. Bought a rice meal for around 300 baht coming back to Bangkok as the plane was late by an hour and half. The rice meal was worse than a pot rice (spin off of the pot noodle)


    How about flight safety standards ?

  12. Do you mean Mae Sot airport (Tak) ?



    After reading the above article, something's wrong in the explanations given about the incident. The pilot explained he had been confused by a farm smoke near the runway. I couldn't locate the hospital under construction, but whatever the explanation, the pilot is out of the safety standards one can expect from such a a professional aviator.
