    Thanks
    Why not? It's exactly what you are doing every time you open a new thread, usually pretending to be helpful.

    Melbourne by far. Brisbane is very boring.

    As he stated elsewhere, he's assisting in getting Potato's first English album off the ground.

    Ah yes, considerations of climate

    Time for a transexual aboriginal paragliding enthusiast based in Caracas to join up, surely.

    Yeah, and about that, I'm afraid it's not good news...

    Smeg finally decided to fulfill his destiny as a Thai rock star and was invited to go on tour with Potato as a tuber-player.

    They were on a bus on the way to a gig, it was wet, the driver was going too fast and didn't see the bend in the road in time...




    Everyone was mashed.

    Website - WatThaiMelbourne - Thai Temple

    This website for Australia might prove helpfull ... Thai 4 Me Main page
    I grew up in Melbourne and have lived outside of Brisbane for 20 years apart from frequent trips to LOS.
    I know both temples.
    Brisbane temple is a bit out of the way on the south west side of brisbane and is situated on 10 acres and you definitely need a car to get there.
    Melbourne temple is in Box Hill on the east side and is built over 2 housing blocks and can be accessed by public transport.
    Melbourne has hot dry summers and cold wet winters. Brisbane has hot humid summers and cool dry winters although this winter has been unusually wet. Melbourne is much larger in population is more culturally diverse with a better public transport system. Many country towns are only a few ours drive away due to Victoria being much smaller and much more populated. Brisbane has better weather so if weather is the driver definitely Brisbane. The Gold coast is only about 1 hours drive away if you want a nice beach and all the tourist facilities. Brisbane itself has hardly any decent beaches unless you want to travel. Melbourne has a few along south melb/middle park/ Stkilda that are fairly accessible with public transport. If fashion/culture, cafes restaurants and the arts and decent public transport are your go then definitely Melbourne. If you like to be casual and enjoy the outdoors lifestyle with better weather, then Brisbane.

    Hey it's not all bad news! That memorabilia you have will be worth a fortune now!!

    You'll be able to sell it, live a life of wildcat luxury off of the earnings, sit around a pool and write novels about other forum members all day.

    Being a groupie, well probably not so much. However there are a couple of tribute bands you can follow. The Potato Chips for one.

    Ok. Thanks for the cheer up.

    I can only hope the potato chips also have a farang tag-along who speaks impeccable Thai with honorary PhDs and a penchant for cute DJs.
