    Hallo Kevin,

    the roadworks in front of Tesco are already completed. The 3-floor Buisiness houses are completed too.
    Gino, the italian guy, died two month ago. Saw him last time in march.
    Hey, what about the grass on your ground? Need a sheep? ( July )
    I will be back in November, 14th.

    Show me the Money! A Saturday morning parade down the main street of Sawang Daen Din last April of generous donations to a local project ...many thousands of dollars! What a great way to acknowledge and encourage charitable donations!

    Lots of very tasty food and local produce at the night markets in Sawang Daen Din.
    Mid Winter in Sawang Daen din can get as cold as 15 C at night with blue sky days of 26-28 C just about perfect, but "freezing" for the locals at night who wrap up in Ski Parkas and gloves when it goes below 20 C!

    Try going there and familiarizing oneself with the area would be a good start

    Yeah that would be my game plan. Have stayed at the resort for a few days but would like to stay somewhere for a month or two and get more famiiliar with the place and the people.

    What kind place you looking, just room or apartment or house ? I can still have room for rent, it up to beauty salon. But it is just only room and shower and roof terrace. But i can also ask my wife if she knows some place what can rent.

    Hi Markos, thanks for the offer. Probably going to look for a room initially and store my things at my girlfriends parent's place. Just thinking of staying in SDD for 3 months initially and seeing what I think of it long term. There is an awful lot of Thailand I want to see once I retire but need a home base where I like to come home to (not sure that makes sense).

    I don't finish up in Australia till 30 June but will message you closer to that date if that is ok.

    Take a look at development to the rear of Tesco....in my opinion priced to high to buy, but an abundant amount of houses to rent in the development.
    New development of bungalows planned or started somewhere near the hospital.
    ........also there is the new 3 floor business houses opposite side of road from Tesco.

    Yes thats right, there is some new shop houses near that main street. I have also German friend who make and sell houses that area, i no know if he have any just now but if someone intrested buy new house i can ask also that. I live Ban tao hai village when i there, but we have shop house just there middle of sawang. Same place where before have that Rainbow restoran what that one German man Walther been keeping, we own also that shop house but just now have someone rent it. We have that Beauty salon just there same place, but they make only womans hairs and makeup there.

    Hi Markos ....will look you up after 27th...met your lady last trip, and she was kind enough to help my wife and self with some wi-fi access.
    Just an idea...you are in the right Soy.......
    Why don't you convert your shop into a little Greek restaurant...We need some good Greek barbecue and Greek salads in Sawang Daen Din....You might be surprised at the number of customers. Somewhere warm inside with good food would be popular when it gets cold at night soon.

    Pogues' Christmas hit reaches 25 YEARS

    http://www.irisPogues' Christmas hit reaches 25 - The Irish Times - Fri, Dec 07, 2012

    Pogues' Christmas hit reaches 25 YEARS

    .It was christmas eve babe
    In the drunk tank
    An old man said to me: won't see another one
    And then they sang a song
    The rare old mountain dew
    I turned my face away and dreamed about you
    Got on a lucky one
    Came in eighteen to one
    I´ve got a feeling
    This year´s for me and you
    So happy christmas
    I love you baby
    I can see a better time
    Where all our dreams come true.

    They got cars big as bars
    They got rivers of gold
    But the wind goes right through you
    It´s no place for the old
    When you first took my hand on a cold christmas eve
    You promised me broadway was waiting for me
    You were handsome you were pretty
    Queen of new york city when the band finished playing they yelled out for more
    Sinatra was swinging all the drunks they were singing
    We kissed on a corner
    Then danced through the night.

    And the boys from the NYPD choir were singing Galway Bay
    And the bells were ringing out for christmas day.

    You´re a bum you´re a punk
    You´re an old slut on junk
    Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
    You scumbag you maggot
    You cheap lousy faggot
    Happy christmas your arse I pray god it´s our last.

    And the boys of the NYPD choir's still singing Galway Bay
    And the bells were ringing out
    For christmas day.

    I could have been someone
    Well so could anyone
    You took my dreams from me
    When I first found you
    I kept them with me babe
    I put them with my own
    Can´t make it out alone
    I´ve built my dreams around you

    And the boys of the NYPD choir's still singing Galway Bay
    And the bells are ringing out
    For christmas day.

    Have another HO... HO...HO Marcos! With the temperatures now in Finland I can see why you "need some laughs"!! My apologies ......I read your replies and assumed that you were the Greek Guy with the flat over the beauty parlour in the street with most of the restaurants to the South of the highway! If you have not eaten good Greek barbeque'd lamb, shaslicks, Greek salads, cakes and deserts........... then you need a holiday in Greece on the way to Thailand!
    Much of Finland escapes the cold in Thailand.....There is another guy from Finland with a Thai wife and a nice house on the outskirts of Sawaang Daen Din.
    Keep warm ntil you arrive back in Paradise!
