Investigation Follows Stunning Admission by Aetna

Last year, Aetna acquired BUPA. In December, CVS acquired Aetna. This week California launches an investigation following a stunning admission by Aetna's past medical director. I have a policy for my boyfriend and been having customer service problems with BUPA. Not big problems, but they have been ...

Re: Soi Twilight to be Demolished in June/July for Redevelopment?

Why would a Bangkok bar owner imagine that his customers would follow him to Pattaya? People want local bars. Soi Twilight as "local bars"? Are you kidding? 90%+ of the customers are from China or other Asians visiting briefly. That's the whole business model of the soi. Squeeze every sat...

Re: Has Anyone Seen "Call Me by Your Name"?

I watched “Call Me By Your Name” several nights ago. There were 3 things I especially liked about it. It has a great title, great title theme song, and a nice little speech by the father near the end of the story. If you can call it a story. If you have not seen this film, but intend to, do not read...

Re: For those busting your backside to learn Thai language

Suddenly I was confronted with 16 different ways to refer to oneself … another 14 or so to refer to "you" … and the most difficult thing of all, the Royal Language used specifically for the monarch. And I was expected to know all this! I wouldn't have named this thread ". . . busting...

Ting Tong Red bar and restaurant reopened today (Wednesday). Late last night, the army police delivered the new "entertainment license" to Mario, the boss. Meanwhile, the Elephant Plaza Hotel and bar next door has also reopened, serving food until 6pm. I don't understand the last sentence...

Re: There's no fool like an old fool

There are dark stories in Thai families, too. I know a young man whose whole family died, the last of which, his mom. He had inherited his Mom's house and land which I was told was worth 350,000 Thai baht, not a big sum to us, but sizable to Thais. An aunt came along and claimed she gave his Mom a l...

God's Own Country

I have seen this movie. This was an incredible experience. Two real, down-to-earth people in real situations. You would hardly know they were gay if they weren't both male. By that I mean they break the molds of conventional gay characters I have seen in other movies. I found this film moving, deepl...

Also be aware at major markets, they scan the same item twice. You have to watch them like a hawk.
