  1. Took him to Ayuttaya last time and we also drove to Hellfire Pass River Kwai might be an option. I remember having a night in Kho San with you and if my memory is correct I paid for a tattoo. But got rewarded later 😜

  3. Heading up on Tuesday with a good friend who has had limited time in LOS and with sometimes being there on business probably hasn't experienced so much of what is on offer. Although I have been visiting Thailand for 30 years there still so much I haven't seen. Take away the Tourist Experience would be curious to hear some suggestions of the "must dos" while there. He has expressed the desire of spending much less time in Soi 4 this trip 😃 I have a few ideas but always but always looking for something new. I have a crab omelette planned at Jay Fai but I hear it's incredibly hard to make a booking. Any suggestions welcome.

    A couple of nuns are relaxing in a nice hot baths after a long day when they hear a knock at the door. “Who is it?” they ask “Blind man!” The nuns look at each other and one nun says, “He’s blind, so he can’t see. What could it hurt?” They let him in. The blind man walks in and says, “Hey, nice tits. Where do you want me to hang the blinds?”

  9. Looked fine to me 😃 A beauty queen has been slammed by angry viewers after she wore a controversial gown at a popular pageant. A beauty queen has been slammed by angry viewers for wearing a “see-through” dress on stage. Organisers of the 2022 Miss Vietnam beauty pageant have been forced to apologise after an uproar over a contestant’s transparent gown. Model Phuong Anh was seen wearing a “flimsy” yellow dress with extremely sheer material that showed off her body underneath. The 24-year-old had been on stage to give the first runner-up title to contestant Trinh Thuy Linh. Phuong – who was the first runner up in the 2020 competition – said she felt “ashamed” by the outfit, adding she had “learnt a lesson” in her fashion choices. The organisers of the event issued an apology to angry fans over the controversial dress.
  10. 3/4 of the way through Turning Point on Netflix.....Disturbing
  11. Sometimes we would tilt the motor to make it bounce. If you didn't get it right it would only just make you bog down but done right the results was outstanding 😃 Ours never went this fast though. A lot of the kids these days have 30 and 40 hp motors and the tinnie can reach speeds of up to 90kmh Forgot how much fun the spraying anchored fisherman was
  12. Indeed. So many great memories. Pouring petrol on the sand and lighting it then kicking the sand at each other. Flat out trips to Audley Weir. Girls Church Camps at night over in the Royal National Park Was fun being a kid in the 70's growing up on the water
  13. I grew up with a 12 foot "Tinny" and a 9.5 hp Evinrude. We used to spend all summer holidays out on the water. We were lunatics. When the swells came through we would ride them in to the bay. On the way out, going against the swell would inevitably result in taking quiet a bit of water on from the spray Quickest way to empty it was pull out the bung when you were planing on smoother water

Key points: The HTMS Sukhothai went down just before midnight (local time) about 20 nautical miles off the coast An overnight rescue mission in bad weather secured 73 of the 106 people aboard Some 33 other crew were forced to abandon ship, the navy said Three navy vessels and two helicopters were sent to find the missing corvette HTMS Sukhothai off Prachuap Khiri Khan province, south of Bangkok. The warship suffered an engine malfunction and went down just before midnight (local time) about 20 nautical miles off the coast. An overnight rescue mission in bad weather rescued 73 of the 106 people aboard, the navy said, with the remaining 33 forced to abandon ship. The navy posted images and video footage on its Twitter account showing a group of personnel in orange vests in a black inflatable raft moving away from a ship in darkness as waves swelled around it. It was not immediately clear how many rafts had been deployed. The Sukhothai, a US-built corvette in use since 1987, was hit by strong waves on Sunday, forcing it it to tilt to one side before becoming flooded with seawater, navy spokesperson Admiral Pogkrong Monthardpalin said. A picture shared by the navy showed the grey vessel flipped over onto its side, while another image on a scanner screen showed the bow of the ship and a gun turret poking above the waterline as it sank. https://twitter.com/prroyalthainavy/status/1604515919568388096?ref_src=twsrc^tfw|twcamp^tweetembed|twterm^1604515919568388096|twgr^bb13ed3dfeca7f0134e763a2c2c0eb19a5301519|twcon^s1_c10&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.abc.net.au%2Fnews%2F2022-12-19%2Fthailand-navy-ship-sinks-33-sailors-missing%2F101789240
  15. Agree probably misleading to link the two but makes a great headline. 6,500 may have died during the construction period but how many were related to "construction" will probably be never known
  16. The 6,500 migrant workers who have died in Qatar since World Cup awarded on construction sites
  17. Luxurious might be a bit of a stretch based on the budget
  18. Argentina players appeared to mock dejected Netherlands stars as they celebrated their side's win
  19. If I remember correctly the record even had a sticker on it denouncing it being used for racial agendas or something.
