  1. The days are short and the nights long in Germany. The sun is moving towards its southern turning point, the Tropic of Capricorn. This dark and cold time of the year is the time of Christmas. In Germany there is an ancient tradition of the so-called Christmas markets. The lights and the Christmas trees with electric candles drive away the darkness a little with the lighting in this season. The Christmas markets go back to late medieval sales fairs and - often one-day markets - which gave the citizens the opportunity to buy meat and winter supplies at the beginning of the cold season. In the 14th century it became customary to allow craftsmen such as toy makers, basket makers or confectioners to set up stalls at the market to sell the little things given to the children for Christmas; stalls with roasted chestnuts, nuts and almonds also existed at that time. In the year 1310 a Nikolausmarkt in Munich was mentioned for the first time in a document. In the course of time, a tradition spread throughout the entire German-speaking area. Since about the first half of the 20th century, the markets have become a fixed element of pre-Christmas customs. I invite you to a stroll through the Christmas markets in Buxtehude and Hamburg. A few glasses of mulled wine, a bag of roasted almonds and French fries with a Bratwurst -- sausage. The mulled wine stands are always surrounded by a lot of people. Christmas trees and many lights that drive away the darkness. Bratwurst, sausage, and French fries. They always taste good. There's a cabin here with pastries and sweets. What's that? This is a heart of gingerbread and honey cake. A really big one. Ich liebe Dich 55555 hahaha A big heart for a beautiful lady. All those hearts are for the girls of Pattaya - from good old Charly - Hamburg - Bangkok - Duesseldorf Bakwahn - early morning 5.30 am local time - Hamburg
  2. Just 18 days to go and I am off on holiday; three months of sunshine, warmth, many new adventures, impressions and experiences. My people at home freeze their asses off in the cold, dark Teutonic winter, but I will be on the sunny side of the earth and cheat the winter. Last November and the first two weeks of December were horrible. Long dark nights, grey sky, fog, rain, snow showers and temperatures like in the refrigerator. An old wonderful song occurs to me; a song in which the wintry New York and the sunny LA actually play the leading roles. The lyrical I, the Song-I dreams its way out of the cold grey inhospitable NY into sunny LA. And that's exactly what I did twice the last days in Buxtehude and Hamburg. First I spent two hours strolling around the Christmas market, drinking mulled wine, chatting with some pepole and having fun. So follow me and accompany me on my walks through my towns. „All the leaves are brown and the sky is gray I've been for a walk On a winter's day“ Yes, the leaves of this young oak tree are brown. It is right in front of the the building of the Buxtehude fire brigade. This day when I strolled through Buxtehude was one of those two days when there was a blue sky and there was a little sunshine. I wanted to stop at the church. Stepped into a church …. and I wanted passing along the way - along the pews towards the altar. And I wanted to go down on my knees and pretend to pray …. But bad luck! The church gate was locked. That's why I couldn't talk to the priest, who likes the cold and who knows that I'm gonna stay on such a winner's day. Then I could have dreamed "I'd be safe and warm If I was in L.A. California dreaming On such a winter's day.“ So I tried it two days later and took the S-Bahn to Hamburg city center to turn my dream of LA into a dream of Pattaya. The weather was cold and muddy, the sky was covered with grey clouds; and the church St. Petri – right in the middel of the city center – was open. So I stepped into the church and I passed along the way Well, I got down on my knees And I pretend to pray You know the preacher likes the cold He knows I'm gonna stay Pattaya dreaming On such a winter's day. St. Petri was not only open but crowded with people. If I didn't tell her I could leave today and I would be safe and warm Pattaya dreaming On such a winter's day Of course, you have recognized it long ago, the song ... the immortal Mamas & Papas. Only Mama Michelle is still alive. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-aK6JnyFmk or this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=890ab8b86Og Live from Hamburg – Late! or early hahaha 5.10 am Bakwahn
  3. Wasn't the Dollhouse at Clinton Plaza? With the famous girl #33 !!! She danced in this Gogo and turned the men's heads (with her big boobies). She drove the men crazy. I still remember the many comments and reports about her quite well. After the dissolution of Clinton Plaza, Dollhouse a gogo moved to Soi Cowboy. It must have been that way.
  4. What Dollhouse a gogo are you talking about? Dollhouse in Soi Cowboy in Bangkok or the Dollhouse Pattaya Walking Street Soi 15? It's cold in Germany. A combination of a low pressure area (T) over Skaninavia and a high pressure area (H) over England and Western France shovels us ice-cold air masses from the north to Central Europe. Even in the western lowlands of Germany - e.g. Düsseldorf on the Rhine - night frost prevailed in the past nights. It's horrible.
  5. In Australia thousands of square kilometres are in flames, persistent heat and several deaths. The flames have already spread to several thousand square kilometres of bushland in New South Wales and neighbouring Queensland. Both regions had declared a state of emergency at the beginning of the week, enabling the fire brigade to access state resources more effectively and quickly. The German television showed frightening pictures of the fire blasts in the last days. Terrible! In Germany we have had typical November weather for days now. For days only grey in grey, much rain, not a single ray of sunshine; and the days become shorter and shorter, the nights longer. In Hamburg currently 3 degrees. the German low mountain ranges all have snow (over 500 m). The snowfall limit is 500 m. The German Alps drown in snow. In Bangkok are predicted between 32 to 34 degrees for the next days ; blue sky, sunshine full. Sigh! I get jealous. Our weather makes me sad and melancholic. I think of an evergreen from "Breakfast at Tiffany" Moon River. This dreamy, lugubrious melancholy of the melody brings me in no time at all on a flying carpet of a thousand and one nights to sunny and warm Bangkok. Fly with me!
  6. It got cold in Germany. The last four nights we had in large parts of our country -1 to -4 degrees in the night. In the low mountain ranges and in the Alps of course correspondingly colder. A high pressure area over Central Europe led to a cold spell. I had to turn on the heating for the first time in this autumn. To pass the time I watch some videos from warmer areas; e.g. Pattaya Walking Street, Beach Road. I'd like to be there now. and some more ....
  7. Once again it applies to Pattaya: Nothing is as constant as the permanent change. My beloved “Super Girl” is now “Angel”. One of my favorite gogos - the Super Girl at Diamond Plaza, Pattaya - changed to "Angel". Now I read on a very lively German-speaking board that another Gogo Bar has closed down: Wild Cats. On Pattayagogos I find the confirmation. Actually this Gogo - located in a small side soi of Walking Street - was a kind of insider tip. Not as expensive as the Gogos, which lie directly in the WS or the Soi 15. Nevertheless with many attractive girls. I was often inside and had my fun with the Gogo Girls For over 27 years I have been wondering how bars, gogos and other amusement and catering establishments in Pattaya survive the low season. Many of these companies hardly earn any additional costs or monthly leases. As a result, they can hardly pay the staff. How and with what do the many gogo bars pay their girls? If such a gogo has 20 to 30 girls on the payroll, how do these bars pay the partly (by Thai standards) horrendous salaries? PS: I ask Buffalo Bill from the bottom of my heart not to post more in my topics, threads. Please get out of my topics, threads. I have asked this gentleman before not to post in my threads.
  8. But I don't want to discuss and reflect on death any further. I have a three-month holiday in SOA ahead of me. I will spend roun about 5 weeks in Pattaya, in Jomtiem. The reunion with Pattaya Jomtiem will undoubtedly be a celebration. Here's my little philosophy of the festival: To celebrate feasts is human; and I believe that only we humans can celebrate feasts. Neither the palm trees on the beach of Pattaya nor the sea, nor the nightly stars, nor the deckchairs and parasols celebrate feasts. Neither the monkeys in the jungle nor a pride of lions after a successful hunt celebrate feasts; that is reserved for us humans. We feast on different occasions: we celebrate Christmas; the birth of Jesus Christ; to say welcome to a new born baby to say good wishes to people when they get married or have passed an important test or have been promoted: We human beings are - inevitably - celebrating and therefore are festive living beings. For me, the feast is a moratorium of everyday life; it is an exit from grey normality, from daily routine. So my three-month vacation is an exit from the Teutonic winter, from the solicitudes and sorrows of daily life. Live from Hamburg –17:15 - 27.10.2019 Nasiadai - Bakwahn
  9. Guys, let death be a final thing. It is inevitable and and comes with deadly certainty! For every living being nothing is as certain as death - literally cocksure. But man is the only living being of which we are certain that he knows it, however uncertain the time of passing away may be. I learned at school: "mors certa, hora incerta". Death is certain, but not the hour. All life stands under this almost definitory condition. You don't have to be Benjamin Franklin to realize that at least for us humans taxes and death are inevitable. And we in Germany have the highest direct taxes, the highest social security contributions, and the highest indirect taxes. But I think positiv! ----> I remember an old song of Stevie Wonder: POSITIVITY! Nasiadai – Live from Buxtetown on the Este River – 25.10.2019 - Late! 0.50 a.m.
  10. At the moment I am preparing my holidays in SOA from January to early April 2020. My doctors - two internists and one general practitioner - have given the green light again. All examinations had a good result. Something else: In my social environment - friends, acquaintances - men die away. A friend from old childhood days - a gifted football player, later a coach - died at the age of 64. Two doctors - a paediatrician and a gynocologe - died at 62 and 75. My ex-brother-in-law died at 68. The impacts are getting closer and closer. 555555555555
  11. 555555555 yes, I know. It's hard for me to converse in the English language. My possibilities of expression are very limited. The situation is different when I express myself in writing in comments, reports, annotations, etc. I use dictionaries and small translation aids from the Internet. The English grammar and syntax are very simple, thank God. The only difficult rule for me is the 'paraphrasing with to do'. The grammar and syntax of the German language are probably the most complicated of all world languages. A foreigner who has a reasonably faultless command of our language has my highest recognition.
  12. Coss writes: "Keep it up, I hope to one day meet you in person so we can reminisce on days gone by " In one of my last holidays in SOA I met Herrn Flashermac in the Lucky Luke Bar at Nana Plaza. One of my Thai friends - a Thai Airways captain - was with me. It is always interesting, to put faces to names. However: my knowledge of English is very limited. I find it difficult to have a reasonably meaningful conversation in a language I learned at school about 55 years ago. Some remarks about the Nana Plaza: The Nana Plaza was for me my center of the world from 1992 on for over 20 years. This NP has lost its charm, its attraction in recent years. That's why I prefer Pattaya now. It may also have something to do with my becoming old. I will spend a few days in Pattya, Jomtiem from Friday 3 January 2020 until Wednesday 8 January. More precisely: in the so-called Soi Welcome in the hotel "Happy Bou". In March I will spend about 4 weeks in Pattaya.
  13. Here is actually a ban on pictures. Girls may not be shown - according to the rules of this board. Also their names and e.g. their bars and their numbers may not be mentioned. The idea of Khun Sanuk was: The privacy of the girls should be protected. That was since the foundation of this board - I believe in the year 1995 - the policy of this board. This rule almost resembled the image ban of the Bible: You shouldn't make yourself a picture or any parable. (2nd book of Moses, chapter 20) Khun Sanuk allowed only one exception: number 33 from the Dollhouse, Clinton Plaza. This girl was so well known, so popular, she was so often called, she was constantly reported that KhunSanuk capitulated.
  14. I have been driving to the Hat Tung Wua Laen beach since about 1996. I have reported about it almost every year on this board (and on its predecessors). Of course I have made friends and acquaintances over the years. There were many adventures, events, beautiful restful days. I love this beach. I have taken it into my heart.
  15. The fate that has befallen Washington Square is now threatening Queens Park Plaza. Queens Park Plaza, like the WS, is also a high quality part of the real estate market, and so it is part of the Bangkok real estate market! In the long run, the higher yield will prevail over old-fashioned romanticism and individual wishful thinking. The bars, massage parlours, small shops and restaurants there did not generate enough turnover and did not make enough profit. Then comes a potent investor, and offers a new, rewarding, profitable use. The "new, modern times" have mercilessly wiped out this part of Bangkok. Luxurious hotel complexes, expensive restaurants, exclusive boutiques for the nouveau-rich Asian clientele have come with them a part of the old, romantic Bangkok has been extinguished. I can't turn the WS into a restricted area, a protected zone of my blessed memories. All of us together cannot declare Washington Square a UNESCO World Heritage Site and thus protect it from the wrecking ball. That is the wistful truth.
  16. Washington Square fell victim to the wrecking ball a few years ago. Now Queens Park Plaza has to bite the dust. The only constant is the change. I remember Washington Square: Washington Square was located on the Sukumvhit between the Soi 22 and Soi 24; a plaza with about a dozen pubs that have settled there since the end of the 70s. A meeting place for Anglo-American "local expats" as well as a few Vietnam veterans and Anglo long-term vacationers; mostly pensioners, drinking away their pensions ... The "Silverdollar", the "Prince of Wales", the "Wild Country Bar", the "Texas Lone Star", the "New Square One Pub" and some others. When you entered these bars, you noticed that these pubs breathe history, these pubs can tell an infinite number of great stories. When I discovered them around 1997/98, I thought I was in the heart of Düsseldorf's Old Town. Among the Anglo-American guests of Washington Square there were some interesting types; unfortunately most of them already deceased. It was always great to talk to them for two or three hours. The only one still active is Richard Diran. Have a look at the website. In memory of Washington Square, Richard painted a picture of the Texas Lone Star; at the bottom right he immortalized himself. On it the regulars, the girls; he tried to capture the atmosphere of this pub. I remember the king of the "squaronions" Kurt Francis. "Your voice of Bangkok". http://www.diranart.com/store/index.php?act=viewProd&productId=172 www.Diranart.com
  17. aaaaahhhhh number 33. Clinton Plaza ----- that was when I was young, strong, well trained. Oh my goodness. Time drags by so quickly.
  18. Cavanami, wrong thread! You need to be more careful. Nasi - Bakwahn
  19. "GIK" seems to be a new creation of colloquial English. None of my dictionaries know this word. Where does it come from? What are its etymological roots? Does this word come from the new technical language of electronic communication? So the computer, the smartphone, the Internet? Coss writes: " Girlfriend/Boyfriend - not usually headed for marriage, more like 'friends with benefits', or at least that's my understanding." What could be the semantic differences between the normal (or even meanwhile old-fashioned) boyfriend/girlfried and the new-fashioned gik? What is expressed in such a new term? What social changes? ok. ok. I don't want to deepen that further.
  20. I'm stupid and uneducated. Please, what is a "gik"???
  21. Hi Migrant, I've been looking at Bang Saphan on the map. It's about 10 km to 12 km north of Hat Tung Wua Laen; something like that. It looks very nice there. A real alternative to Hat Tung Wua Laen. The big German group you're talking about is probably old people, all of them retired, who spend the winter there (November - March). If you have interesting information for me, then please let them come ... 1. accommodation At Hat Tung Wua Laen I pay in my bungalow complex 250 to 300 Baht for my bungalow. 2. a few pubs, beach bars 3. other information Thank you in advance Nasiadai – Bakwahn
  22. God willing, I will come to Bangkok on Friday 3 January 2020. I will then drive together with one of my Thai friends to the Jomtiem beach in the Soi Welcome; deep down in the south of Pattaya. We stay there for 5 days. Parties, Barhopping, Girls, Girls Girls are then the flavour of the month. Afterwards I will drive to my beach, the Hat Tung Wua Laen near Chumpon at the Gulf. I have often reported about this beach. Also with some pictures. This beach is for approx. 24 years (since January 1996) my retreat for peace and recovery. There are also some girls; no, no, no bargirls, just normal ladies. From there it goes on to Laos and later in February to Burma. This time I absolutely want to see Pagan. https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bagan https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pagan_Kingdom In March I want to spend about 3 weeks again in Pattaya. At the beginning of April I will go back to Joeraman in spring.
  23. Here you can read a swan song about the former Secretsboard. http://www.pattayagogos.com/nlne.htm “30th September 2019 Secrets Bar opened in 2006 on Soi 14. It was a development based upon the Walking Street FLB Bar which had been an early trail blazer for the new idea of an internet forum. The FLB forum was Pattaya Talk and proved very popular as place to discuss Pattaya nightlife while also promoting FLB Bar as a community meeting point. Secrets was an offshoot from FLB and adopted both the idea of a forum and a meet up bar. The Pattaya Secrets Forum became the most popular in Pattaya and was key to many people's knowledge of Pattaya nightlife. The forum maintained this popularity over many years but eventually declined giving way to Pattaya Addicts on the forum front, and to Facebook more generally. The Bar also declined, perhaps related to the decline of the forum. Whilst still maintaining a connection to the Soi 14 Bar, the main focus of Secrets moved to Cambodia. Secrets tried to keep the forum going via a new forum host but it didn't work out and now the Secrets forum has totally closed. But the Secrets Forum had a good run and will be missed by many.” So far Dave from Pattayagogo. Nasiadai - Bakwahn
  24. My dear Mr. Panadol Sandwich, what do you think I care about your assessment? The assessment of whether or not we Germans belong to the human race again. Your answer 5555 I don't give a fuck! I couldn't care less about that. I appreciate your contributions and your objectivity; but to instrumentalize history to exclude me or us from the community ... no. Other countries, other peoples have a skeleton in the closet, too. Probably even more! I am thinking of the age of colonialism and imperialism. Besides, I am not responsible for the deeds of my grandparents or my great-grandparents. Peace Nasiadai – Bakwahn
