Re: Which is the Best Dating App in Bangkok?

Before I meet anyone off an app I need to see several pics. If I don’t like them ALL then the meeting is not going to happen. So Grindr with its single pic is of no use to me. Jackd is shit at the moment..rarely look at it. Planet Romeo is useful, especially the classic old app. The new one is awful...

Re: I am sooooooooo stupid!!

Another gogo bar tactic is to deliberately slow down returning the change, presumably in the hope that the customer gives up & leaves. I've seen Toy Boys leave the change on the counter for 10 minutes, before returning it to the customer, even when it's substantial change from 1000 baht for one...

Re: Marina Inn walk-in price

That was pointed out on the board you moderate when discussing the venue for Joe’s party!
Also pointed out that it is called Sunee Plaza after Madam Sunee who owns the place.

Re: Finish or demolish? Waterfront Suites near Bali Hai

When I first came to Thailand I was shocked to see so many empty Condo blocks south of Jomtien, including the Ambassador. Now they all appear to be occupied.
So this is nothing out of the norm....

Ha! I tried that and they charged me about 300 baht because I wanted it reissued on a date other than that stamped on the card!

Re: Be Careful at the bank

It’s absolutely archaic all this signature nonsense.
This is the 21 st century and we always have to show them Passports or ID if we go into a Thai Bank for anything. We have passwords, PIN numbers, electronic Debit Cards, Passbooks, Credit Card’s ALL of which do not need a signature....
