    I met the Russian owner about 8 years ago when it was being built. He showed us around it.

    He was a really jovial character, who, when Viktor Bout got arrested and I saw his photo in the paper, I could have sworn it was him, and still believe it was.

    They are just to distract you. You think you're all safe and then the real ones get you.

    Yes it is the home of French owner who created and sold AsiaRooms to TLC, but I wonder why he built a 100 million Thb building without sea view ?

    Because he also didn't want to be seen ?

    I saw this building when trying to find a condo to buy, but I think this place is too expensive for me :-)



    Just wondering !

    Wrong, the owner is French and was owner of a big world internet company.
