    New Pub in Korat

    Yes, indeed, another new pub has opened in Korat. This one is called the "Aussie Pub" and is owned by a young woman from Udon who moved to Korat to escape an abusive farang spouse....

    The bar is located across from The Mall just east of the pedestrian bridge. It has a proper bar with a pool table and some dining tables. Decent sound system. Small TV.

    Heineken on tap. Plenty of other local beers and the usual spirits. Nothing out of the ordinary.

    The food menu has lots of Thai offerings and plenty of Western food including "all day" breakfast, burgers, steaks, sandwiches and more.

    I had a cheeseburger and fries for 100 baht. The burger was not huge, but tasted just fine.

    The location is OK except for parking. I suppose you could leave your car at The Mall and walk over the bridge or do as I did and take the bus.

    I believe that's the purpose of the small TV. But, I didn't see any UBC tuner, so I have no idea what they show. However, there is another new pub in Korat ("Sport and Cocktail Bar") that seems to show every sporting event available.

    Yes. She said she and her Aussie husband lived on the Gold Coast for a couple of years.

    well that's her story anyway...nice to see she took his money with her...

    I mean think about it...if you got stiched-up by a Thai girl in Thailand, would you move back to your homeland and set up a business designed to attract Thais...unlikely I would suggest...but this bird gets shafted and abused in Oz and comes back to Thailand to set up a bar targeting who?...australians of course...idiot woman...

    of course taking an ex's money is not something limited to Thai girls...I have two ex wifes living very nicely in NZ...thank you KM...

    Actually, her story is this:

    She and hubby had lived in Udon for the past six years and ran three bars there, including one called "Down Under", which is still operating.

    She got tired of his drunken abuse and philandering and left him there in Udon. He still has the bar. He has the kid. He still has the other assets.

    She brought one car to Korat which she sold in order to open the bar. Three of her Udon employees followed her to Korat to work in her new bar.

    But, that's just her story. One of a zillion in Isaan and, as Klongmaster points out, all around the world.

    Thats not the story thats in Udon, the Ozzie guy, (J) I have met and the impression is that he seems a very decent bloke, he has a established reputation in Udon for being the same, he certainly doesn't have a history as either being a pisshead or violent that anyone knows of.
    There canít be good living where there is not good drinking

    ^Well, when's the last time you ever believed such a story?

    To be perfectly honest, I wish she hadn't started on the tale. All I wanted was a burger and a bottle of beer.

    That's what I get for being the only customer in the place....

    Back to being a recluse for me!

    "Shut up, serve the food & beer,d you'd have a lot more customers" usually works.

    Or,

    "Gossip's for old wimmin, Do I look like a fuckin' woman to you?"

    km - have you been burnt by the media (gossip) before as by the last few comments you have made here and in other threads would seem that you have?

    Not that I have a problem with that - as a media person myself I see the hypocrisy, gossip and straight out lies every day - I'm just interested in your thoughts.
    News is what someone, somewhere is trying to suppress - everything else is just advertising.

    Never !

    I encounted a similar story yesterday here in OZ, A Thai female, after enquiring about the ethnic origins of my kids, gave me her story.
    She came to Oz with a guy who abused her etc, left him and found another who treats her well, with the added comment
    "šnd he has a lot more money"

    No offense taken. I've heard enough of these tales of woe to take them with a grain of salt.

    Actually, I'd be interested to hear the other side of this story as a lot of what she said just doesn't ring true; especially the part about her giving up her three year old daughter....

    I dont beleive any woman that comes out in 5 mins of metting someone starts telling people she was was abused. I had a stuiped bitch in Oz that told every one I abused her when the truth was I was the one that was getting abused.

    ......they bore me to death!


    Seriously, though - I normally avoid any place that has the name of a country in it. Doesn't matter if it is "Aussie bar", "Swedish restaurant" or "Dieter's German bed & breakfast".

    With two exceptions: Tokyo Joe's in Suk Soi 24, and a couple of Irish pubs.....
    Any error in tact, fact or spelling is purely due to transmissional errors...
