Retiring To The Seaside..of Thailand - Ch4 News Report

Recommended Posts

Why the hell do Poms insist on mispronouncing Pattaya ? It's a Thai town with a Thai name - albeit a town dominated by foreigners - I'm happy to pronounce it the same way the Thais do.

 

I'll die long before I become anyone in that video - including the Swedes in the retirement home. Depressing.

For those who cant get enough of old codgers who think they've landed in Paradise, skip about 5:30 into this vid:

 

 

AC makes Pattaya look like 5th Avenue in NYC, and our documentary-maker friend clearly has problems deciphering the broad Aussie accent. The gentleman in question would be lucky to find a drinking buddy at the RSL in Oz - in AC, he seems to be living the life of Riley.

and indeed pattaya must be nicer than AC which really looks like a shithole...makes even manila or at least some parts like makati look charming ;)

Only been to the Philippines (Manila) once, in the late 90's,and thought it was a shithole, and have never wanted to go back and that video certainly won't change my mind.

 

PS I hope the old Aussie leaves Jenny plenty of cash when he cops it as she will certainly deserve it.

He keeps pics of his grandkids in the same album as his 'wank bank' - tragic. Jenny deserves a freaking medal, bargirl or no - even as a mail-order bride she could have done better in Oz. Some of the women I see wandering the main street here with decrepit old farmers look like they fell out of an ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down ;)
