    Thanks for the tip, it takes ages on the normal run - about an hour, but still faster than on the road.

    Pat ... here's a challenge.

    Do a Restaurant review.

    FULL ON


    • Photos of the shop (not much interested in the staff ... unless really out there)
    • Map
    • Menu
    • Transport
    • etc


    Get cracking

    Last night in Bangkok, was invited to a posh "Vietnamese-Issarn" restaurant.
    Fokin beer was frozen, the head just wouldn't go down - "Bia Woun", the latest craze:

    Food looked nice, but my expectations were high for Vietnamese. Didn't appreciate the very sweet dips & everything was made with minced pork.

    Upon my return, I will do a thread reporting on uncharted areas with unexpected charms. An update on my railway & urban development thread. The Ram 24 thread will have to wait, unless Yourdaddy could haul his ass down there with a camera.

    But I'm in England for a month from monday. It's 0 degrees.

    Jesus Stroller what a faux pas!!! Literally unbelievable for someone with a link to the Kingdom. That is what is left of the late Kings crematorium. Cant even put a smiley up but it does beggar belief you did not know that...

    I suppose my excuse is that I wasn't here for a year and didn't follow the news.

    Got to Don Mueang more than an hour early, enough time to stroll across to the market with the food stalls.

    They're not bad at all. Avoid Nok Air, they've postponed a few flights in the past. No fun arriving after midnight.

    The problem is her cousin, who climbs over the fence and helps himself to the fish - well he used to.

    Special treat for the returning farang, grilled bacon, giant squid & mushrooms:




    Oh, and Kai Mot Daeng:

    The old folks are dying like flies this time of the year, a funeral almost every day.

    ^ For you to be invited, you/your partner must have known the deceased.

    Did you give a little coin?

    We usually do, somewhere in the 500 - 2,000 Bht range depending on the closeness of the family/association

    Well, she knows everyone 'round here.
    I only go if I knew the person. Yes, an envelope with money - it's all recorded and they'll reciprocate.
