#1453151 One Man’S Incredible Collection Of Fossilised Poop

Posted by dvarpala on Yesterday, 08:57 in The board bar

You may already know this, but there's a shop near the main Post Office on Charoen Krung Rd., BKK that sells fossilised dinosaur dung,( bought a lump years ago to use as a paperweight at work) - walked past it the other day, and there's some in the window still

#1453150 Hilarious Online Reviews Of Nana Hotel...

I haven't even been in the place yet, thus I'll be staying there for  a few days with my wife soon, for a laugh and a trip down memory lane ( well Soi 4 ). Haven't been to NP for a long time, wondering how much it's changed

I will definitely be going back, I haven't enjoyed an hotel so much in years, and preferred it to the Dynasty. Beers on the terrace, chatting, and watching the world go by - happy days. Oh, and the Songkran festivities were a revelation....

#1441539 Worst Hotels In Thailand?

Posted by dvarpala on 23 June 2016 - 11:44 in Accommodation

Not the worst hotel I've ever stayed in by any means, but not one I'd go back to either - soulless.
For amusement's sake, here's a review that I left for The Royal Orchid Sheraton, a few years back on TripAdvisor  


#1441534 E-Cigarettes And Vaping ?

Posted by dvarpala on 22 June 2016 - 11:44 in General discussion

This is why vaping/e-cigs is/are so popular in the UK.
That and the significantly reduced chances of meeting Old Nick too soon!

#1441528 E-Cigarettes And Vaping ?

Posted by dvarpala on 21 June 2016 - 09:30 in General discussion

The jury is still out, (and will be for a while yet if the tobacco companies have their way) on the "benefits" of e-cigs, but we can be reasonably certain that they are a shitload safer than the traditional sort.
Surprisingly, they are quite satisfying, and you can take as many, or as few, drags as you want.
I shall puff my clouds until someone tells me otherwise, I think - then plead ignorance

#1441431 E-Cigarettes And Vaping ?

Posted by dvarpala on 13 June 2016 - 14:55 in General discussion

Hi guys,

Quick question.  :help:

Would I be correct in assuming that no-one gives a toss about the ban on e-cigarettes / vaping ? :relieved:
Or is this seen as a good way to extract a few baht from pissed-up farangs ??
Web opinion on this, as with most subjects, is unclear, but I'm pretty sure that the "on the ground" answer is here....
Sadly, it's been about 3 years since my last trip to LOS, but in six weeks - yeeeessss :beer:



#1440780 Help a fellow drunk on his way back home

Posted by dvarpala on 29 April 2016 - 14:05 in The board bar

Hi guys,
I'm impressed that this game is still running....
I played this when I was still free and single - been shackled for 10 years now... :-)
But....will be back in LOS for a fortnight in July/August, with wife, daughter, and a mate of mine. Planning BKK, Koh Chang, and somewhere else that I haven't decided on yet?
Anyway, thanks to my awesome negotiating power, I have been allowed, nay actively encouraged, to "show a friend around BKK" while wifey goes off and plays Hilary Homemaker with my eldest daughter.
Game on :shhh:

#1358525 Top 10 Myths About Thai Bar Girls

Posted by dvarpala on 04 August 2011 - 07:58 in General discussion

This is all a bit of a revelation to me - next you'll be telling me that Father Christmas, The Tooth Fairy, and The Easter Bunny don't exist as well....

Seriously though, most of this seems to be pretty close to the truth, but like when I go to see a film, I'm capable of suspending reality for a few weeks

Myth 1
Thai Bargirls Are Not Prostitutes
Whoever created the illusion that a woman who works in a sex establishment or freelances to make $$$ by spreading her legs is not a prostitute is blind.

I'm not blind, but I may choose to make nyself blinkered for a while... :_party:

MooNoi said:

Myth 2
Thai bargirls number 1 priority is taking care of themselves and their families.

Can't really argue with that one.

MooNoi said:

Myth 3
Thai Bargirls Are Submissive

Not always  :argue:

MooNoi said:

Myth 4
Thai Bar Girls Like Older Men
....a sweaty old man that can barely get a ‘hardon.’....

There may even be an element of truth in this one, at least we generally have more money, can hold our ale better, and might be looking for something slightly longer term than ST.
As for the comment about erectile disfunction, some BGs (yeah, big surprise) might relish the opportunity to not get rogered occasionally.

The rest I mostly agree with.


#1358471 The Hunt For Gollum

Posted by dvarpala on 03 August 2011 - 14:14 in The board bar

Looks pretty good - timing of release spot on too...
Its been said that Tolkien's work was the start of the whole "fantasy" genre - just a shame that there's so many by-the-numbers authors out there...
Pity its not authorized, it would fit in well with a boxed set of the whole Hobbit/LOTR saga  :yikes:  :susel:

#1358033 Go-Go To Hell

Posted by dvarpala on 29 July 2011 - 14:09 in Stories

I'm really impressed that this thread is *still* active - I haven't been on the board for a few years now..
It's a testament to the sheer quality of TurkFist's tales of LOS - 8 years and the odd comment still appears.
I remember buying a copy of the collected tales of Turkfist, and still read it occasionally - a truly unique item.
Back in BKK in October, looking forward to showing my wife of 5 years around the sights - I met her the day I came back from one of my trips, so figure it's about time I showed her around   :chili:

#800358 Software you can't do without

Posted by dvarpala on 27 March 2004 - 07:45 in Technology

Anyone who has a website should take a look at this excellent free traffic counter.

Not only does it do the obvious, and count your site traffic, it also collects the following info (and more), and presents it to you in a series of pie charts. Fascinating...
  • Country of visitor
  • Link used to arrive at your site
  • Search engine used ( if any), and key words entered
  • Browser
  • Operating System
  • Screen Resolution  
Check out  Ned Stat Basic for more...

Or click on the little blue graph on a tracked page - here's a good example of a well visited site - Tropical Heat ( The books are worth a read as well ;) )

The set-up even gives you the HTML to copy/paste into your page.

#794898 Ringing the Bell (Free Beer) POLL

Posted by dvarpala on 07 March 2004 - 06:33 in Nightlife

Thank the guy personally, as I would anyone else who bought me a drink. It's only polite, after all.

Coming from a country where there is a bell in most bars, either to attract attention, or to announce "last orders", I wonder how many of us Brits have found out the purpose of the Thai version the hard way ???

I rang it once "for a laugh" - yeah, hilarious, cost me about £40, and that was a quiet night. Never again...

It's incredible how far sound carries in Thailand. ::

4. Marge from The Simpsons. (You gotta have a cartoon character in there somewhere.)

Fucking hell, if you must use cartoon characters, what about the following :
  • Holly Would  from "Cool World"
  • Jessica Rabbit from "Who Framed Roger Rabbit"
  • Leela from "Futurama"  
  • Lilo's Older Sister from "Lilo & Stitch"  

In fact almost anyone but Marge Simpson....

Hooray - another intellectual discussion...

I certainly wouldn't turn my nose up at Lucy Liu.

But, were it not for the fact that I am 40 years too late, Audrey Hepburn would be my bone-partner of choice.
( Dunno 'bout the dirtbox though, front door's fine by me.)
