    Russian Arrested For Catamaran Theft

    What a sailor. I remember sailing my boat to Koh Chang and my good old Thai captain seeing Koh Khram Yai off Sattahip and saying "Koh Chang?" Not quit there yet, Oh well the capitan didn't know what he got himself into and neither did I. Good old times.

    Thai Students Dress As Nazis For School Outing

    Only in Thailand...What couldn't you excpect from people that make fun of disabled in tv shows etc. I heard there used to be a nazi themed bar in Ratchada, does anyone know is it still there? I would want to see it in my own eyes.

    How safe is oral sex (guy to girl)

    I got myself tested recently for HIV in the HIV counsil here in farangland (free, anonymous, quick test) and while waiting for the result I discussed about the chance of catching the virus orally and yes, the tester told me about the latest studies which show that receiving oral sex as a male is practically safe but giving it to a woman is considered risky behaviour. That definitely made me nervous thinking of all the possible HIV+ girls I have put my tongue into since I last got tested. Well the nerve wrecking 10 minutes was over and the test showed negative. She made the wait a bit easier though by showing me how to protect myself next time. Take out scissors, open a condom and cut it. Wohoo a nice little pussy cover for safe munching. I just couldn't help myself thinking I won't share a bed with a Thai woman and scissors.

    Koh Chang

    Most visitors come directly from Bangkok. It's not a whoring destination even though there are plenty of beer bars. Very few good looking girls and and those few know their value .Scandinavian and other European families have outnumbered backpackers there and ofcourse these days you cannot avoid Russians where ever you go...

    Koh Chang

    There is also a direct airconditioned boat to Koh Kood from Trat riverside but I'm not sure if it runs daily in October. I've used it the other way and it took about 2,5 hours. Koh Kood is a total getaway, but I wouldn't risk going there for holiday during the rainy season.

    Koh Chang

    Koh Chang is definately my favourite island in Thailand. But be warned that in October it can be VERY rainy, the worst case scenario is that you will be stuck in a flood and can't leave your bungalow. Better not to book anything in advance, just go to Thailand and check the weather forecasts and in case it looks bad head elsewhere. And edit...yes it's not an unspoilt paradise island anymore. It has changed a lot in recent years and soon can be compared to Koh Samui. But at this stage it's a good combination of island living and all those things tourism brings (services, nightlife, restaurants etc.)

    Boatbuilding/owning Thailand

    I have had few kinds of motor boats and yes I gotta say I agree. The bigger the boat, the bigger the suffering. If I was a millionaire I'd never buy a yacht, I'd rent one whever I needed. Lot less headache. But having said that, living in an own catamaran changing places whenever I like....hmmm guess I'm still a dreamer.

    Boatbuilding/owning Thailand

    Mine is just 36 feet open tour boat with small cabin and canvas roof, but very suitable for fishing and snorkeling trips in Mu Koh Chang. Actually what got my interest in White Lotus is the fuel cost. Even my boat, which should be very economic takes around 8 liters of diesel/hour at 8-9 knots cruising speed so I'd be very interested to see a wooden boat that runs for 5 liters. Wooden boats are absolutely stunning but knowing many who own one, everybody are complaining about high maintenance costs and the work those boats require every year. For the interested, check this website www.kohchanggamefishing.com

    Boatbuilding/owning Thailand

    It's not interesting story if I don't tell all the things what has happened (which I don't do in open forum) but to put it short, I finally got the boat 10 months late from what we had agreed on the contract so when deciding to getting a boat built remeber that contracts are just ink on the paper in Thailand. I got away with it easily, I know many who have lost fortunes in boat building deals.

    Boatbuilding/owning Thailand

    I had a dream, got a fiberglass boat built in Pattaya, almost lost my sanity during the process...Now after two seasons of doing more than 100 fishing trips with tourists, would I do it if I knew everything what's going to happen after signing that contract with the boat builder...No, but I'm happy I did it then, the dream became reality.

    Bangkok v Pattaya £$

    I can visit Bangkok for shopping, non p4p nightlife, nice dining and things like that but everytime I end up in Soi Cowboy or Nana area I just wish I was in Pattaya. Bangkok was great when I was younger and really enjoyed the normal nightlife with students and normal day-working Thai girls but p4p has always been too mercenary for my taste there. That said there are two massage joints Akane and Sazanka for which I haven't found rival in Pattaya yet.

    Largest Snake Encountered?

    I ran over a thick yellowish snake what I think was about 3 meters long near Ban Chang. It looked huge when it appeared in front of my car in the dark, didn't stop to measure it though. I think I've seen the same but smaller one on Koh Mak before also crossing dirt road. On Koh Chang I've seen plenty of snakes but nothing big. Friends saw a King Cobra in the middle of the village there. This one was captured not so long time ago in the jungle, don't know why they killed it? http://www.whitesandsthailand.com/images/front_page/Koh-Chang-Giant-Python.jpg

    Pattaya Beer Bar Girls' Prices

    Is this an urban legend or are some wierdoes really going there to get a bj? Remember driving past and saw some dying drug addicts sleeping under the bridge. Quite a sad sight.

    Snus and giving up cigs...

    Camel is a new brand and I can see it's designed to US markets. Camel white is actually good, I have it now. My favourite is still General white. Here in Finland it's just so stupid, I'm dependent on the friends visiting Sweden to bring me some so everytime I run out, I start smoking again or have to buy nicotine chewing gums. There is also a big black market for snus because of the EU ban but the prices are so high that I rather wait someone to bring me some from Sweden. Giving up snus is not easy either, the nicotine addiction is great but somehow I've seen many friends doing it with much better success than those giving up cigs.

    Snus and giving up cigs...

    Snus is great. I'm able to stay off the cigs with it and as said it carries less risk for your health. Only problem with snus is that nicotine addiction is even worse than with cigarettes but at least I'm saving my lungs. Wasn't there a study that shows that oral cancer prevalence in Sweden isn't any greater than in other countries even half of the Swedes use the stuff? Didn't know that tobacco industry supported the ban but it was really one of those fucking stupid bans by the EU.
