  1. When I was in the army I was taught to keep my finger out of trigger guard until I had decided to shoot.
  2. Look on the bright side mate. If you are dressed in black you can get into the Castle in Pattaya.
  3. Hi! I have considered buying curtains next time I'm in Pattaya. Would you care to post the location of this shop. regards ALHOLK
  4. Hi! Obviously all time share operations aren't scams. In Sweden in the 80'ies they were common in the skiing resorts up north. Most of them were perfectly legit. The prices however were based on the assumption that they would rise steeply over a long period of time. Eventually the bubble burst ofcourse and lots of people lost their money. Time share might bee a good alternative for some but for those who need flexibility in their planning I don't think they are. Considering the week legal protection for foreigners in Thailand, especially those without heaps of money, I would be very careful. regards ALHOLK
  5. Hi! I don't doubt you but I have on a couple of occasions told the girls that I'm not in the market for time share appartments. They are either extremely good actors or they don't have a clue to what I'm saying. Perhaps some do understand that it's a scam and others don't. regards ALHOLK
  6. Hi! I think you should reconsider. Even if you can find a timeshare that isn't a scam it's still in most cases a poor deal. Think about it. You are restricted to 1 or 2 specific weeks every year. As I do know a little about your work I doubt if you can say for sure that you are going to Thailand on one specific week for the upcomming 10-20 years. 15 years ago time share apartments were popular in the Swedish skiing resorts. They were perfectly legit and no scams were involved but people still lost lots of money on them. They will tell you that if you can't use a week they will rent it out for you and you make money. This is complete and utter BS. Also consider SOTH's comment about the people behind the racket being crooks. I have heard this from several other sources and I don't even have a problem with the blokes at Dog's Bollocks. regards ALHOLK
  7. Hi! These time share scams have been around for quite some time now. I once heard from an Englishman that they are orchestrated by conn men that have been kicked out of Spain for running the same kind of racket there. I don't know if this is true though. A friend once went to one of their sales promotion meetings. He said that ther was lot's free food but no booze. Apparently they were not alowed to serve alcohol so he left quickly. regards ALHOLK P.S. I have filled out the forms a couple of times but never give them my real name or location. Also I doubt if the young ladies on the street know what it really is about. They seem to believe that they really are doing survey on tourism.
  8. Beer is made of WATER, YEAST, MALT and HOPS. No peaches, no bleeding cherries, no dead voles, no fermented fish, only WATER, YEAST, MALT and HOPS. regards ALHOLK
  9. Hi! I think you might be on to something there. Once when I was enjoying a cabare I was nearly hit in the face by a piece of banana. I was drunk at the time and don't remember everything. I do however remember that the lady performing was lying flat on her back on some kind of stage. :D regards ALHOLK
  10. Hi! The trip from Don Muang to Pattaya rarely takes more than 2 hours. Even if there were flights to Utapao I doubt if you could make it in less than that. Also busses and especialy taxis would probably be more comfortable than the small aircrafts used on shorthaul routes. regards ALHOLK [ August 20, 2001: Message edited by: ALHOLK ]
