  2. An Aussie and a Maori walk into a bakery. The Aussie steals three pastries and slips them into his pocket. He turns to the Maori and says "pretty slick aye bro, the owner didn't even see me". Unimpressed the Maori replies "typical dishonest Aussie, bro I’m gonna show you the honest way and still get the same result". The Maori calls out to the owner of the shop and says "bro I want to show you a magic trick" intrigued the owner obliges. The Maori asked him for a pastry and he eats it. He asks for another and eats that to. And the another which he eats also. By now the owner says "c'mon mate where's the magic trick?" The Maori points to the Aussie & replies “now check his pockets".

  3. Decades ago there used to be gatherings of a large group of mongers, Meet up at a place near cowboy, usually one with great burgers or a midget at the door run by Santos, Then off to all the bars as a large group, numbers fluctuating depending where someone dropped of or rejoined the mob. And the great joy was a post on Monday or Sunday about the bar crawl. Who got drunk, was the most handsome man, an online debate would follow on line defending oneself from disappearing so soon, and your opinion of that great bar sucks. For those living overseas it was a great way to remember what you might be missing In Oz we'd have our own get together, sitting at a mates place, now passed on, getting Thai food and beer, if lucky even Thai beer, and talking about past bar crawls. Ahhh the mamories!

  4. Yes, Hugh Hoy has returned to find his favorite "sandbox" of years gone by still alive, if not kicking. LOL Hugh tried for a few years to get back on Thai 360 in his original incarnation, but grew frustrated with trying to overcome some "glitch" of one kind or another. Then, I discovered Facebook. But it seems that the pantyhose-wearing censors over there can't handle my politically incorrect comments or graphics. Screw 'em. I hit my 80th birthday last month, so like many of the original members of this board, "things have changed". I got wrapped up in a 25 year relationship with a great/"normal" Khmer "girl" and still manage "conjugal" activities with a former dancer at the Darling Bar from the 1980's (NOT the Tilac, but the Darling Bar that later became Rawhide). That doesn't mean that I don't enjoy hitting the bars these days. I go there for the eye candy and get my appetite up, but return to my old standby's to eat. No need blather on about how the "sanuk" scene has changed. We all know how and when and why. I recognize a lot of the monikers here and can actually put names/faces to some. LOL I've booked what will be my last trip to the LOS for Sept.-Oct. 2022. 8 weeks from now I will land in Phnom Penh and spend a few days before heading to Siem Reap. I'll make SR my base camp, as that is where Ms. Hoy resides. At some point during my 5+ weeks, I'll be heading over to BKK for up to a week. Sort of a last hurrah for this old man. If the stars are aligned correctly, maybe a few of us can get together for a lunch some place near the NEP and have walker races afterwards. LOL Hugh

  5. How life changes our time and desires. Had a long chat to a buddie ( of many years ) this morning. We are both from NZ however met in Bangkok in 2000. Both now in our 60s and see LOS in a different perspective. Ten or so visits and 20 years later - could never repeat the pace of years back. Mind you,business has an impact as well. Nonetheless we both look forward to a few pints / the sand beaches of Phuket/ the never ending smiles in the bars late into the night/ and the freedom of time on or hands. Give me that pint !

  8. Don't Look Up [2021] Two low-level astronomers must go on a giant media tour to warn mankind of an approaching comet that will destroy planet Earth. A disaster movie in genre and delivery. Star studded smug satire that is mostly cringe with few laughs.

  9. Sir, this is really serious. And it is the full truth which I swear by the Almighty: Several years ago I coincidentially walked down Soi 7 and passing by the Beergarden I saw a woman of almost uncredible beauty. She did even smile at me and I asked her if she probably could sacrifice some spare time to accompany me for dinner and discuss further possibilities. Only if her time allowed of course. Later we arrived at a hotel deep into Soi 18 ( Park Plaza) and she finally refused to enter the room because the door of the room had been painted in black colour. They always say it is the Land of Smiles but it isn´t. Later Madame decided to abandon her doubts but I am still sure it was because I had not settled the bill yet. Conclusion: cash beats ghost.

  10. Hi, >I miss them. So do I, but I don't think it would ever work again. Certainly not with regards to the evenings out afterwards. Too much has changed I guess. Then again, maybe we could try to arrange a meet-up in BKK in several months if this f&()#$ covid has finally subsided. Sanuk!

  16. When I was at school we were given the Polio vaccine on a sugar cube (no not Bork), later we had the TB vaccine, a passage of rites, one had the same scar on the shoulder as your father, if you like your first tattoo (not that I have inkings) The number of times I fell of my bike, fell on broken glass, got bitten by neighbors dog etc and ent to the local infirmary for a tetanus jab, it was just all part and parcel of life and growing. As I got older and traveling overseas for work I have had, Yellow Fever, Cholera, Typhoid, Hepatitis, Rabies and Anthrax vaccinations to name a few. I never complained it was being forced on me, it was simple no vaccination, not allowed into foreign country, Covid Passport is nothing new, I have had a vaccination passport for over 30 years, it just seemed normal. And to hear todays anti-vaxxers whining and winging about civil liberties and against their will, Pathetic.

  20. Ricky Gervais: SuperNature [2022] TV Special of the comedian with his signature black humor doing stand up on stage at the London Palladium. Takes on the rules of comedy with amusing self-mockery of everyone easily offended. Comedy doesn't always travel, and this, whilst a good laugh, along the lines of his Golden Globes hosting but more vulgar, comes over as a little lazy and juvenile. Worth seeing when the mood suits.

  25. I always thought Sarasin was a nice guy. Funnily enough he dropped me an email this week out of the blue. He hopes to get back to Bangkok at some point but like so many of us who are outside the country he is waiting for the current restrictions to be done away with.

  30. Landscapers [2021 TV Limited Series] A devoted and mild-mannered British couple become the focus of an extraordinary investigation when two dead bodies are discovered in the back garden of a house in England. Based on a true and bizarre event, the story is directed skillfully in an original black and theatrical comedic style using two top actors making for an intriguing series.

  32. Dear Sir, the people mainly causing dramatically increasing numbers of infections here are the same braindead idiots as you find them for example in the USA, widely identical with Trump supporters as it looks. Thanks God there are now serious restrictions in preparation which will make them think twice if they keep on rejecting vaccination. The man who does the BuBi-garden occasionally got his first shot this week because they will stop paying him if he has to enter a 14 days quarantine due to not being vaccinated. The best are the Singporeans threatening non-vaccinated citizens with the hospital bill if they catch the virus. Brilliant idea. I agree with the Nostritz-guy regarding the Belarus problems, no further comment necessary. Cav, this article is absolutely reasonable and makes sense, how come you post it?

  34. Well done Aussie Police, and another stick to bash Abo’s with. The, mainly, British Press make me sick referring to Cleo as The Australian Madeleine McCann Mamy differences, the fist being Cleo was taken from a caravan when sh was sleeping with her parents where as Maddie was taken from a holiday villa whilst her parents had left her alone ( a 6 year old in a foreign country no less) to go on the lash with their mates Now Maddie’s parents are saying this “gives them hope”, what planet are they on Cleo was missing for 18 days, Maddie has been missing for over 14 years UK Police have spent / wasted £20 Million on Maddie whereas a few years earlier there was the case of Ben Needham who went missing in Greece and never found, they spent £1 Million on him. Is this because Portugal is better for Police Jollies than Greece or maybe Maddie’s Parents are Middle Class, Father a Consultant Cardiologist and Mother a Doctor (General Practitioner) whereas Bens parents were a 21 year old unmarried couple from a Northern England Housing Estate, you see the picture.. Again, Kudos to Aussie Police and I bet doll sales will fall significantly amongst the Abo population.

  37. Oh I am terribly sorry, I should have also posted the text “This is a breaking news story and page will be updated when more information is available, press refresh for further updates” which was at the end of the article. If you were to click the link now you will see reference to his Blood Cancer but that information is not fully available 2 minutes after someone has passed and the news is hot off the press. I tell you what, I won’t bother posting about deaths anymore until the autopsy is complete.

  38. Dune (2021) This one is as good as you'd expect it to be. Magnificent, visual grandeur. Good acting and writing. Try and watch this on the big screen or at least a big arse TV. Hand "Devices" are not gonna cut it. It does seem set for future sequels à la Star Wars &c. it even has "part one" in the opening credits. After David Lynch's and Jodorowsky's efforts, director Denis Villeneuve should be congratulated. The cast, some of whom seem to be acting, well above their normal pay grade, Jason Momoa, Dave Bautista, Zendaya, also includes some very familiar folk. Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Jason Momoa, Stellan Skarsgård, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, Chen Chang, Dave Bautista, David Dastmalchian, Zendaya, Charlotte Rampling, Babs Olusanmokun, Benjamin Clémentine, Souad Faress, Golda Rosheuvel... Very good, waiting for the next one.... and a half.

  42. Something else comes back to me. We want to go out in the evening, the three of us. Yes, wonderful. I take my hairbrush and go through my hair, put on my shoes and am ready. Khun Fah stands in the room and says two or three sentences aloud, making hand movements that are supposed to mean that both, Ott and I, should leave the room. Ott translates for me that she wants to get ready for the evening and that we can both go downstairs to Khun Boh's bar and have our first beer. „What did she say, 'we were allowed to do'?“ I ask my friend. „Yes“, says Ott, „I translated exactly, we have her permission, we are allowed.“ I remember an old song from the 60s, Alma Cogan sings the Lovers Concerto by the Toys in German (actually a minuet by Johann Sebastian Bach) with the German title: „So fängt es immer an“. That's how it always starts. „So fängt es immer an. That's how it always starts“, I say to my Thai friend. „A few days ago I could do what I wanted without asking her. Now she allows what I can do, and in a few days she says to me in a clear unmistakable commanding tone: 'Tonight my favourite TV show is on. We'll watch it together. Don't you dare leave the room.' That's a nice outlook.“ Ott looks at me with a broad grin and pats me encouragingly on the shoulder: „As an old husband with a lot of experince, that sounds familiar to me too. Do you think our Thai women are different from your German ones in this respect?“ You live and learn, leaped to my mind ... A few seconds later we were at the bar enjoying the first beer. no pictures, sorry.
