    Coming to Issan!

    Hi guys,

    Been browsing quite a bit here like a bad 'un, and getting more than my fair share of chuckles, along with some much needed insight into what goes down in the North-East.... Thanks!

    I'm getting as prepared (as I can) to come over in the next week or two, yet as luck would have it, I've lost contact with my girl out in Chum Phae to forward my travel plans etc. to her - seems her email got hacked into!

    If by chance anyone here happens to live in or nearby Chum Phae, I wonder if you'd know of any of these motor bike shops in town? She is the manager(ess) in one of them (but don't know which one!):


    P.c.y.(1984) Limited Partnership
    748/53 MOO 1 MALIWAN RD CHUM PHAE, Chum, phae, Khon Kaen, 40130
    66 43311312

    Saha Thai Karnkasetyon Limited Partnership
    2058-2 -060 CHUM PHAE, Chum, phae, Khon Kaen, 40130
    66 43312307

    Prayoon Motor Co
    267 MOO 16 BURANACHAROEN RD CHUM PHAE, Chum, phae, Khon Kaen, 40130
    66 43311055


    I have to make contact asap - otherwise she'll never know which day I'm arriving!

    Any friendly assistance much appreciated

    Forgot to mention:

    She lives a little north of Chum Phae - in a small town called Nong Phai....

    Cheers!

    I met her here in London - quite a while back. (I had a different girlfriend back then (as she was married back then also).... have had recent lengthy communication with her, so no worries about 'wallet-hunting' or any opportunism there

    How come you don't have a phone number for her?


    Have you tried calling the numbers from the bike shops you put up there^^?

    I have her phone number, but there is no answer since two days ago, and also weird email hacking activity.... Strange. Have tried all hours phoning, but gets a bit tiring when there's a 7 hour time difference to deal with also .

    No - I'm dreading calling the bike shops atm, as my thai speaking is 99% hopeless so far...!

    Where are you in London? go to one of the Thai supermarkets and ask one of the girls that work in there to give the bike shops a call for you.

    I used to go to one on Chepstow road quite a bit and they're all friendly enough!

    It really doesn't sound too good, Thais love their phones and will answer them even at 4am or whatever, hope your hopes haven't been built up too high.

    That's an excellent idea, Jizzy

    There just happens to be one less than 10 minutes walk from me here - I'll try that tomorrow morning, if nothing happens later this evening....

    @DirtyDog -

    There's always that possibility... but it's usually her contacting me (rather than the other way round; I'm wondering currently if something out of the ordinary may have 'happened' out there, as she mentioned last email that her granny was very sick and that she had to help look after here whilst working also (she equally has to look after an eight year old daughter, so has a fair bit on her plate).

    About the hacking thing - I work on computers, and have traced a 'phishing' hi-jack back to brazil using her account; common enough, but just a big nuisance at the moment

    DOES seem strange - after MONTHS of daily contact..... then suddenly - 'nothing'!

    Weird.

    I'm not due any particular date as such.... really down to the Thai Embassy here sorting out my visa, getting a flight organised, dealing with odds and ends this side and so on....
    I'll stay as long as things 'go OK'.... but no fixed plans as yet

    **Is it just me, or does this thing not work for anyone (User CP)?

    Just seen you mentioned Chepstow Road there.... I was brought up near there (Holland Park area) in Blenheim Crescent - Small world

    Went to Fox & Holland Park School also round that way...

    Reckon she's been stringing ya along with hope of "sponsorship" for one drama or another ... when it gets close to ya arrival it gets all too complicated as she can't convince her husband to be cousin/brother for your visit
