  2. 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

  4. 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

  5. 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

  7. Over the last couple of months first my Kasikorn and then Bangkok Bank ATM card were getting rejected from some ATM machines with the message they could not read the chip. It was strange as the same machine that would reject one card would read the other bank's card. I just figured it was due to the typical Thai lack of maintenance on anything and that the ATM chip reader was getting flaky. Today I had occasion to stop in at a Bangkok Bank branch office for another banking matter, so while there mentioned the problem with the reading of my ATM card's chip. Without another word she took my

  11. Can't see where I was saying the streets are lined with gold but there are Thais who are willing to take the stictching off their wallets. My point and I am not really needing to stress it is that most foreigners think that all Thais are poor barring a few in high circles. Fact is that many Thais have disposable incomes that allow them to spend in places like Sky Bar and that is why it was noticed by Esco. After coming to Thailand and SE Asia for over 33 years it is noticeable that Thais are spending more, in fact you know that when spending they are like other Asians, they will pa

  12. When are we going to safeguard the old and those with "underlying" health issues and let the rest of us get on with it. It seems as if a lot of us will get it and not know, some will get a bit ill, some will be hospitalized and a very small percentage will not make it. I'll take my chance same as I do with flu, cancer, crossing the road etc.

  13. Good point spice. Now these girls have realised they don't even have to sit and speak with a fat, smelly farang to get a ladydrink. All they have to do is go on paypal and shake their arse and some mongloid in Manchester will send her 500b. Like you say, this could end up becoming the new norm. Just like ridiculous barfines for 'showgirls' and double ladydrinks on soi cowboy. Only people that do it are the idiots that believe flowers and NWG marketing, ''you're helping a girl feed her family''. Helping a brass feed her ice habit more like it, while NWG cream 80% of

  14. Doesn’t change my life one bit. In fact,if there wasn’t any mention of it,I wouldn’t know,hence,wouldn’t care. Who’s to say what’s right? Not me,that’s for sure.I still enjoy buying drinks in person as well.And it doesn't in the least detract from my ability to feed my family.🤷‍♂️ I always found it weird,blokes telling other blokes how they should best spend the money that they earned. I’ve always been the guy that says “good for you”,to guys spending their own money in the manner they choose.

  15. It's set by the default font that Invision includes with the forum software. As happens too often with developers, they can't leave well enough alone and insist on tinkering and "improving" things with every upgrade. Worst case is when the developer thinks they know what is best for the end user, without any end user feedback. For a bit of insight on the "I'm the developer and know what's best" mindset, have a look at the Invision Community topic on Why aren't posts numbered within a thread?. The Chief Software Architect decided post numbering was "just meaningless clutter". So rath

We'll leave it here tonight lads because technically where I'm going to take you next is not a street or snaps from a street....if you get my drift...I know there are many rules and regs about that are followed by some and not others, and I haven't time to go into all the sub rules as well.... I'm off for a cheapish start to the night in ''Kink'' in

  18. sadly yes as this will be the first time in anyones memory that we have not a day of high season. todays norm for business will be the stagnant norm until mid next year at earliest. its frickin tough for all right now, and no amount of cutbacks will help. landlords are back asking full rents, staff want some kind of salary and yet no customers. by mid 2021 I cant see more than 40% of bars open compared to a year ago, if that. sorry to be negative

  22. There's rich and poor in every country though mate, and every major city has areas where both groups reside usually far apart from each other, and of course the pandemic has only made that already apparent gap wider. You can always do your bit by buying some water online for those thirsty girls down soi 6.

  29. Probably the wrong thread but after reading about all the bars doing the online streaming I went and had a quick look on Youtube to see what some sad people are raving about. This is Oh Bar, supposed to be full of stunners ? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3dO_uUQOr0&ab_channel=PattayaOhBarOfficial[2ndChannel] I very very quickly went through it and came to the conclusion that watching a paint dry video would be more enjoyable and yet some sad shits are sending them cash. The world has gone mad.

  31. I’m old, diabetic, overweight, extremely vulnerable due to many underlying medical problems and I’ve been in self imposed lockdown since before Christmas. Christ, I haven’t been to my local pub since mid December! With the exception of doctors and hospital visits, I’ve not been out socially, unless getting a car MOT’D counts as going out socially and we’ve not had friends over to mix socially. The wife does all the shopping and anything else that requires mixing with others. I can still walk in the countryside at the bottom of the garden, potter in my shed fixing stuff, read book

  37. Thailand is not doing any "mass testing" so of course they dont find positive cases. The only one we hear about are people who fell ill, went to the hospital and got checked. Again, let them do 500k or 1 million testing per week and you'll see what is the real situation.

  39. there will come a moment when it will be a buyers market. Here in Bali, about 75% of the places (bars, pubs, restaurant, souvenir shops) are closed. Make that 90% in Kuta, the "nightlife area" But of the places still open, none is offering discounts and they manage to survive with the (few) expats plus some locals on the weekends. The owner of the resort I live in, told me she is not interested in local (Indo) tourist as they will try to get 50% discount and there is no way she will accept that. Surprising thing is that I see many closed places being renovated, and new one
