I don't understand wanting to play golf....


Smoking in bars I'm ok with though, until I give up, at which point I will become a fervent anti-smoking nazi enforcer type dude...


You've been warned!


When the time comes notices will be issued to warn members of the public not to approach me! I will be fag-less and dangerous and you'll recognise me as I'll look like someone chewing a wasp...or a hive of wasps!


Not smoking for a few hours turns me into a psychotic asshole.


Giving up...you've seen 'The Shining', right?

Bangkok Traveler, thanks for nudging this thread back on topic. Yes, you can smoke on Thai golf courses, for obvious reasons. Maybe more smokers should take up golf.


Faustian, thanks for your insight on nicotine fits.

I can't understand anyone who calls themselves a golfer and spends time in Thailand but never plays golf!!


I guess my excuses are:


a. I usually travel on standby and prefer not to have any checked baggage.


b. None of my expat friends in Thailand are avid golfers.*


c. It's too feckin hot to play golf.


d. I'm always too drunk anyway.


I keep a spare set of clubs in Manila because I know golf will be in the cards whenever I go there. And the weather a couple of hours south of Manila can be surprisingly pleasant.


* With the possible exception of Farangman who once organized a one-time annual event called the RideHer Cup; a bunch of Farangs getting their butts kicked by a bunch of Thais before hitting Patpong, but I was unable to attend.

I am planning to make a Christmas Pudding soon, here is a recipe that I was going to use, I would be interested in any other recipes folks may have. I like my Christmas Pud full of alcohol. :)


Make this pudding a couple of months before Christmas day.Feed it with alchol regulary and allow the flavours to fully develop.


225g/8oz golden caster sugar

225g/8oz vegetarian suet

340g/12oz sultanas

340g/12oz raisins

225g/8oz currants

110g/4oz candied peel, chopped

110g/4oz plain flour

110g/4oz fresh white breadcrumbs

55g/2oz flaked almonds

1 lemon, zest only

5 eggs, beaten

1 evel tsp ground cinnamon

1 level tsp mixed spice

5g/1 level tsp freshly grated nutmeg

pinch of salt

150ml/5fl oz brandy or rum





1. Lightly grease 4x600ml/1 pint or 2x1.2 litre/2 pint pudding basins.

2. Mix together all the dry ingredients.

3. Stir in the eggs and brandy and mix well.

4. Spoon the mix into basins. Put a circle of baking parchment and foil over the top of each basin and tie securely with string. Make a string handle from one side of the basin to the other so it is easier to pick the basin out of the pan after cooking.

5. Put the basins in a large steamer of boiling water and cover with a lid. Boil for 5-6 hours, topping the boiling water up from time to time, if necessary. If you do not have a steamer, put the basins in a large pan on inverted saucers on the base. Pour in boiling water to come a third of the way up the sides of the pudding bowls. Cover and steam as before.

6. Cool. Change the baking parchment and foil covers for fresh ones and tie up as before. Store in a cool cupboard until Christmas Day.

7. To serve: steam for 2 hours and serve with brandy butter, rum sauce, cream or homemade custard.
