Re: Smoked Kielbasa

Not just those sausages but many more, and Polish bread too, yesterday, in the ASDA near Clapham Junction station in London.
Oh, such a fat sausage that melts in your mouth-Poland, the land where the meat and cheese still taste like in the good old times.

Re: Spend Your Holiday in Jail!

Which again kinda proves that TH is mostly copy-catting. These ''themed'' hoStels (do note-its not a hotel!) are kinda of kinky ''in'' since at least 3-4 yrs here in mainland EURope, also quite a few, boutique or not, normal hotels have opened in former prisons, a little or a lot rebuilt since they ...

Re: New immigration cards to replace old - in October

Totally agree. As I pointed out earlier, some of the key data is already collected by the airline, often at the time of booking but certainly prior to a boarding pass being issued. This includes a passenger's full name, date of birth, nationality, passport number, flight number and departure airpor...

Re: New immigration cards to replace old - in October

1.This is yet another piece of idiotic bureaucratic bungling fudge with no one prepared to make any kind of stand. The result is a mess that is even worse than before! 2.And I really wonder how many of the new breed of tourists coming to Thailand have any clue what most of a form in only English or...

Re: Anybody know if Rausaut is a Thai name.

Is it first or family name? in what phonetic language is it written as this-can also make a lot of difference (did you know that Sayeed and Zaiet and Caheet- are in fact all the same muslim names in 3 languages?). But as such it does not sound like a tipical Thai name. What you tipically hear from T...

Re: The Super A Bar, Bangkok

It started in that place-beside it, and soon after opened a 2nd bar across (apparently now demolished), name was Lucky S. After many years of (at least for BKK) good service, plenty of willing guys and no slightly hidden begging for tipping, they merged into upper floor of SprA. BY that time I had l...

Re: Bangkok Bank Raises ATM Fees

Untill recent it was 180 OR 200-and that depended on the brand of CARD used-which for most thus means the issuing bank. For many Europeans this may be different from USAers, who generally tend to think the whole world has the same rules-which it does not. I guess/somehow recall that the hike is now ...

Re: Hill tribes of Mae Hong Son province

At least some 100.000 Karyen/Shan/Thai yai (more close to what they themselves say) live in big cities, mostly Chiangmai and Bangkok-so much for their rural roots. Subdivided into white and red-shirt (red here has nothing whatsoever to do with the Taksin/PheuThai movement). Best adapted of the many ...

Re: Taipei in 48 hours

Mainland Chinese-or at least a sizeable minority of them-which is already bigger as the total of Taiwan, will always-just like most Thai balk/parrot what their govmt or yesterdaily newspprs tell them. or instantly start to enrage whatever other country is currently on the list of to be harrassed-lik...
