  1. It was never my plan to end up living here. When I retired back in 2004, I meant to settle down long-term in the Philippines as I'd been to the country a lot, liked it, and had several good friends there. For the first two years after finishing work I had a lot of loose ends in the UK and Europe to tie-up so I was flying back regularly. Thailand, with its superior infrastructure, would be an easier place to manage things from at the outset so I planned on spending 2 or 3 years here, then moving on to Cambodia for a year or two as I had another good friend there and quite liked the place, thoug

  2. I visit for about 10 days in every month and then return "Up Country". I shall be out with the usual suspects over the weekend mostly touring round a goodly selection of the so called "Gentleman Clubs" and if last month experience is repeated will have a very enjoyable couple of nights. Last night I came up from Bangsaray in the car ( I will stay in a hotel at the weekend), picked up my mate in Jomtien on route to see Phil in Le Pub for a couple of hours. Driving actually into Pattaya on second road is quite shocking for somebody who has not done that for three weeks. You are qu

  4. But Code, why would that boggle your mind, or does that not tell you something? The way Thailand and many South East Asian countries, and China etc have dealt with Covid has been good in dealing with it. They hit it hard, and the hit it super fast. They had experience from SARS and bird flu, they had a much more compliant population who listened and took heed, probably helped by the history of having SARS and bird flu. They had a good working test, track and trace, big buy in on the App etc. It's undoubtedly worked for them, and they are getting their economies going again and a se

  5. That is an easy one to answer: To see Alex. The only reason an expat would visit the Rockhouse in the present climate would be if they wished to say Hi to Alex because they enjoy his company. Of course, there is another side to that coin! 🥴 Exactly the same reason I would visit Ricky in Pandora because I have known him for years not because I wish to pay 160 baht for a beer when I could get one for 44 baht almost opposite! I like the guy and know he is losing money every single day he remains open. It is the same reason Le Pub makes a profit when it is doubtful many, if any

  8. I fixed it. our subsription had expired today. so duly paid. for what its worth the fees for this site are not horrendous, as you may read elsewhere. our annual costs for site, invision and hosting appear to be around 24K baht a year.. that may raise some eyebrows anyone feeling helpful, let me know. I have paid the lot today and have an empty payp0al, but if no one does, thats fine too. I promised him we would somehow keep it going Its my fault. Phil wanted me to transfer it all over to me and I refused as was still with us and its against my way. end resul

  11. I have traveled the country extensively the last 2 1/2 Month always planing out where i will go. I am doing things a little differently this coming trip. I am taking the first Bus from Pattaya to Ekamai in Bangkok on the 5th and then the MRT to the train station and look at the departure board and then choose my first stop. I will book the hotel on my phone after train ticket is bought. Will stay a couple of days then off to the next town via bus or train doing it basically the same way. The best thing about the Transportation here in Thailand you can get just about anywhere from anywhere. It

  12. Bangkok Protests Over the past few days it has been necessary for the mod team to hide three threads covering the Bangkok Protests. Thai media law is very strict and precise regarding anything which is anti-government in nature. The authorities do monitor the internet. Some time ago a UK National Daily Newspaper was banned from being viewed on the internet in Thailand and if similar action was taken in respect of the forum the consequences could be serious. The obvious question is why can’t material concerning the protests, which has appeared on main stream media all ov

  13. I was so hungry I was already eating this before I thought of taking a snap! A grass-fed Hereford beef fillet steak, with mushroom, garlic and shallot gravy, garden peas and roast potatoes. I bring goose fat back with me from the UK to cook roasties, but I ran out of it some months ago and now I render my own duck fat. The GF buys me 2 kg of duck skins from the market and I get four jam jars of pure white duck fat out of it. Works just as well as goose fat and only costs a few quid, less than you'd pay for a single jar of goose fat back home. Oh well, that's one less thing I'll have to carry b

  14. It's pretty simple. The virus, like most, gets in via your mouth, nose, eyes. How many times have you touched any of those with your elbow today? I'd guess that would be none. I'd also guess you have touched 1 or all 3 in the last hour or with your hands. It helps negate the chance of catching a virus, that's it, it's that simple. But i assume you know all that already, you just choose not to do it. That's your choice. I'm not panicking in the least, my choice is i prefer to do what i can to negate the chances of catching the virus. I'm not arguing how serious

  15. Well for me, anyone who has so little respect for me they wouldn't do something so simple to help keep me and them from catching the virus can f**k off! The ignorance is astounding, and i meant that in every sense of the word. I don't want to catch it, i don't care how serious or not serious some view it, i personally don't want to catch it, period! So i will do what i can to negate the chance of catching it. Ridiculous? To me what's ridiculous is those people who moan like f**k about lockdowns etc, but then refuse to do the basics and use common sense to help stop the spread and

  20. You're absolutely wasted on this forum Spicy! All over the world from Totalitarian regimes, to Socialist states, to European and Western democracies, all having guidance from their best epidemiologists, virologist, scientists etc, they all have it wrong. Wee Spicy from Thailand 24/7 sex pest forum, when bored after a few bintangs at lunch, solves the biggest health crisis the world has seen in a century. Not only that, but does it with a few multicolured graphs. Tells all us lucky forum readers where they're going wrong. I'm so proud to be a member of this forum

  21. Hahaha.... it has been my experience that most ( if not all ) of the drama in my life would of never have happened if it hadn't of been for that " little excitement " that I chose to say yes to the night before. Lol It's kind of like when the girlfriend wakes you up in the morning and asks what you did last night. But before you can answer she informs you that the color of the lipstick that she found in your under ware and the color of the lipstick that is currently plastered around the base of your cock is a color which she does not own.

  24. I have a little place in the Isaan sticks...built it when my daughter was born on her grandparent's property. She lived there for a few years as a baby before school started (in the US). Usually, we go there in the summer when school's out. The people are genuine. They treat me well. We don't lack for anything. I enjoy it for visit. When I'm a very old fart I'll be happy to stay there and watch the rice grow and the cows come & go... from my back door. 🤠

  26. If there were large numbers of unreported cases in Thailand then that would be reflected at the very least in the expat community in Pattaya and Bangkok. Expats going down with Covid would most definitely make the news and this very forum and that is not happening. It is very easy to rubbish Thailand from afar but they closed the borders very early and kept them closed. They introduced lockdowns and implemented what we now consider draconian measures but they appear to have worked. Another factor is that Thai's were already used to wearing facemasks prior to Covid so a very high percentag

Christ ona bike its just a different colour scheme. the old navy, dark blue and similar is swapped for a more trendy light glue, green etc. 🙂 on the new version you moaned that you couldnt read the top header line, and were correct. that colour was used to varying degrees throughout. I simply switched it to a colour that is easy to read with in a pc, tablet and phone if you check a dulux book, and send me the colour code you prefer, we can have a vote on it like married couples, then argue, i will go down the pub, you will go and stay with your mother, the kids will become delinq

  29. A couple of weeks ago on a Friday morning, I discovered a large lump in the back of my throat. Hadn’t felt anything wrong there before,(maybe because of the high doses of morphine I take daily) but I filled in an online E-Consult with my GP surgery, giving details as requested. Later that day, I got a call from my GP asking me to come in within the hour and he’d see me. So open wide and say Aah and he said “ I don’t like the look of that, plus you have another one further down behind your tongue”. Gulp😟 He then said “I’m going to fast track you too the cancer clinic” and he duly f

  30. Just arrived back home after spending 6 days in Munich, but travelling all over the Bavaria region. These are photos of a beautiful town called Fussen. Fussen is home to the Neuschwanstein Castle and is also famous for filming a number of scenes from the movie, “The Great Eacape”. Can you name the scenes out of these photos?

  31. Restaurants, pubs doing everything they can to stop the virus spreading including, table service, wearing of masks when not seated, booking via apps, screens between tables or more distance between those seated, being met by a staff member with a mask on to pass on info etc = blame for the virus spreading so must close down. School run, no masks, no social distancing, the same 6 adults everyday standing all within 2 metres having a good old natter, headmistress sending messages to tell them to socially distance for the sake of the pupils and possible school closure and yet totally ignored

  33. Fun and drama are different things though. Way I see it is majority of guys in SEA are never gonna settle down or be faithful. Plenty do, but most won't, and it's mainly why they stay there rather than bring them home. They want someone to 'take care' while also filling the boots,which they can't do back home. Not saying its wrong, but don't see the point in getting involved with a girl if you are still gonna keep shagging other girls. Just asking for aggro.

  35. It's been a lamb shank weekend by the looks of it. Due mainly to me getting drunk and sleeping very late today, mine had 18 hours in the slow cooker. The meat was very tender and tasty. I served it on a bed of mash. Over all I am pleased with my first attempt. My only disappointment was the mint jelly that I bought thinking it was the same as mint sauce. Even so I ended up with an empty plate.

  36. Rachanee has a home here in the suburbs south of downtown BKK. Obviously had been coming here to her home for many years prior to marriage. I knew that I just needed a few things in order to be happy here. I am pretty mellow at the ripe old age of 63 these days. Gym, nice car, nice home, safe environment, malls that are close etc. I still like to go out and kick up my heels and if we need to go downtown BKK, only 30 minutes on the Skytrain. It helps too alot that Rachanee is mellow, friends come in from USA, she lets me stay downtown with them for a few nights, still can go to Pattaya etc wit

Well.....she never ceases to amaze me, I think she has been watching videos on You Tube of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit photo shoot LOL! We are not there for 5 minutes, I am fooling around with my camera and I hear her say "Ok, can you come take some pictures now"? I look up and she is already in the water, on the ground and ready to go.Jesus Christ! She keeps it fun that's for sure. I guess for a bird pushing 50 in a few years, she

  39. Do you mean that stapling a 20bt note to the front of my Singha vest might work ? To be honest now I've heard good things about those Gentlemen's Clubs but they're just not my thing at all nowadays, it's the same for me now with the Gogo's, I've just got zero interest in them now. My friends summed it up last night when they said that I've lost my mojo and they're spot on, it was good to get over to the Brightside and have a drink with them but as for the women ? Nah, zero interest in them now and the one below from Runway was a real cute thing but I'd rather go home alone ( Photo take
