  1. I always re-activate my account at http://www.asianescapades.com/ prior to a trip, filled with reviews, current goings-on as well as current pics, you do have to pay though. If you don't use a Hotel to pick you up in Manila I'd suggest these guys: http://www.margarita....com/update.php pretty reliable and have a good rep, used them on my last trip. Beisdes Orchard Inn noted by Coss there's also http://www.wildorchidresort.com/ - great location with two pools, Stayed there last spring. Walked up to Kokomos for most of my meals, great place for people watching. Have some Pattaya Expat friends living in Pattaya, AC is where they go for vacation :-) Many say you get WAY better GFE in AC and LT's the rule there (vice ST). Hopefully they'll be a "Pool Party" going on somewhere during your visit, should bring a waterproof camera if you go :-)
  2. I'd suggest the Rembrandt Serviced Apartments as one possibility: they have the fastest Internet I've seen as far as the Internet service one gets from a hotel. Their rooms / suites include kitchenettes and you can easily walk to Soi Cowboy / the BTS/SkyTrain at Asoke. They recently refurbished their rooms. They also have a pool and small Gym that thankfully almost no one uses :-)
  3. That was my first thought as well: would make me think of an inside job where maybe they thought to continue taking "peicemeal" over time, figuring maybe the drunken Falang may assume he spent it and forgot - only they sure had a big 1st meal. Some may recall years ago we had a thread on a certain popular hotel near 'Cowboy where that's exactly what our BM said was happening to the contents of his safe, only then they were taking smaller reasonable amounts each time, such that he had to write amounts down to be sure. I always get Travel Insurance on every overseas trip nowadays, however it never covers theft from hotel rooms: will have to see how much more adding that will cost - may well be worth it. Think I may also look into the Milockie device you can add to make breaking into your Hotel safe harder: http://www.milockie.com/ or here: http://www.corporatetravelsafety.com/catalog/milockie-hotel-safe-lock-p-940.html
  4. If you have an abscess all the more reason to get it treated ASAP (they can be fatal if one waits too long). I've also had work done (Gold Crown) at the Thantakit clinic and they are excellent too. I've been going to Silom Dental for years now, they are a bit more expensive but I like how the specialists all work together to get you the best results possible. They have newer equipment than any dentist I ever saw in the US. One odd side benefit to all the many Novocaine shots they gave me in the afternoons - was sort of like an aphrodisiac in that by the evening, I was randy as a 19 year old!!! Unless it could've been seeing all the hot, pretty, Dental assistants they had working there :-) Hopefully by the time you read this you've been treated already and maybe they even got you some good pain Meds!
  5. If the problem tooth is a Molar, then you may need a specialist, an Endodontist. Molars can have like three roots and the fix involves them using very deliicate microsurgery / drilling. I had a bad one maybe 6 years ago, my Dentist in USA said would have to extract, a specialist would cost many thousands he explained, if they could even save the tooth after all that cost (he didn't think the tooth could be saved at all). Went to http://www.silomdental.com/ (all specialists) and their Endodontist got it fixed up for just a few hundred (many hours of drilling, over many days), still have the Molar along with a gold crown they added, all these years later.
  6. Interesting find, another reason to try and save the Bees: http://www.nrdc.org/wildlife/animals/bees.asp
  7. RIP, a real shame, so young still!. Never met Eyebee but enjoyed his posts over the many years. Many of us might get heart problems as we get older. Curious if Thailand has one of those "First Alert" type services? This is a necklace or bracelet type thing you wear at all times that's actually a transmitter where if you live alone and need help / have some emergency but can still at least press a button (maybe even as you're falling down) - it calls an Ambulance for you. (somehow I doubt LOS has it but you never know).
  8. the above is certainly true. However you might find Weight Watcher's for Men Online (http://www.weightwatchers.com/men/) of value. They assign "point values" to various foods, you can really eat anything you want but your goal is to try and stay within your point goals for the week. For example nearly all fruits and vegetables have 0 points so you can almost eat as much as you want, but a steak is way up there by comparison. Thru the process they pretty much teach you to eat a lot healthier and a bunch of small changes can make a big difference, and these changes are for the long term. The more active / more exercises you do (changes your point "budget"), the more you can eat too :-)
  9. Same owners as Sharks (Cowboy) now, unless something changed again :-) They did have the "upstairs" active again with Dancers a couple years ago, but it didn't last long (now no longer used again). Believe they still have the mirrored stage where you can sit at the stage, look down and see upskirt action (similar to Beach Club in Pattaya).
  10. Liked the story where after walking thru the Pearly Gates of Paradise, Osama is immediately beaten up by George Washington, Patrick Hnery, James Madison, Thomas Jeffereson, and with over sixty others coming at him he yells to a nearby Angel "this is not what I was promised!" the Angel replies "we told you you'd get 72 Virginians, what did you think we said?"
  11. True its long at close to 900 pages of tiny print, but once you start reading its hard to stop! Was sorry to reach the end, now have to wait for the follow on, "12"...
  12. I make it a point to get Travel Insurance every Trip now. Kind of thing that when you don't get it is when you'd need it :-) I go thru this site where you get multiple quotes and plans to choose from: InsureMyTrip.com Like the others mentioned, main thing is the Medical Evac but I get Medical thrown in too with a few minor goodies for just a few dollars more. Was a post on another board few years ago, poor English guy got hit by a Drunk driver in Phuket while there on Vacation and ended up paralyzed. To get back home to England via Medical Evac was in the hundreds of thousands in costs and he had no Travel Insurance. Oh, I also always keep a copy of that proof of Insurance in my wallet: was another story few years back about an American guy who was actually a young, retired Millionaire living in Pattaya got hit by a Drunk driver while walking along the roadside. Some good Samaritans took him to a nearby Hospital but he was unconscious and had no ID so the hospital refused to treat him saying they had no way of knowing he'd be able to pay. They raced him to another Hospital but he didn't make it.
  13. Oops, misnamed the link, should have been : Patong Night LIfe, the Sequel Anyway curious you can't open the link, I'm able to click on it and JRBazil's page opens up with his video ready to start. Maybe Thailand blocked that page? Anyway here's the actual URL you can try to paste in your browser's address window: http://vimeo.com/14180007 I have had some great times in some of the Patpong GoGos however the Markets, agressive touts, and crowds really make it a pain getting around. Haven't been to Patong yet, one of these days...
  14. Still one of my favorites: Patpong Night LIfe, the Sequel Great music (why it was pulled from YouTube), maybe Sayjann will recognize a few of the areas.
