Christmas on Sukhumvit

Recommended Posts

Stayed on soi 33, about as dead as this forum these days, apart from massage parlors with no customers. One exception being Daisy Dream done out like a 1920's Chinese whore house, owned by a French guy. I was assured not the same as the French blackmailer on here from another 'club' down the road. Had a look round and nicely done out, 2k for 45 mins. Owner amusingly claims online they adhere to Thai laws. Might be of interest to people still attracted to such places, personally I'd rather have a wank to porn hub! I made my excuses and left, been open just over a year. I bet hungry penis has been there, dirty bugger 😃

Hotel was full this weekend, 40 rooms and the pubs were pretty packed. Went in Royal Oak and recalled last time I was there was on 9/11 with my old 'mate' long gun on a quiz team. Then went to Thermae and saw all the footage on the tv's of the planes hitting the twin towers, with nobody taking any notice. Pan Pan and the Japanese restaurant on the main road doing good business, good job there are no tourists or would not be able to move. Walked through SC, boring so went to Penalty Spot pub to watch the football, never been in there before great pub but one of the few places we went in with almost no customers. Shops like Emporium were pretty busy. Almost a pleasant break and no melt downs from the Mrs, stocked up at Villa market, best shop in Bkk. Happy 2021. can't be any worse, can it?

Ironically I was also in the Royal Oak, not in Quiz Team, went for a look see when 911 happened, went to Woodstock later

Visiting the birthplace of the nation was a sobering experience. I still prefer the original name of the nation but we move on.

I was there that night, I remember the host saying that something had happened but he didn't know for sure and will tell us later.

 

My wife had been getting a massage and manicure next door while the quiz was on, then showed up and tried to explain about planes and buildings, getting frustrated saying it was like a computer game, we couldn't make sense

 

Then once we all realized there was a kind of shocked unbelieving attitude, something this horrific couldn't surely be happening

 

After that everyone I knew was taking it all very seriously.
