  1. I am very surprised (positively) from the authorities in this case. I followed it since it came out last Sunday and even if I find the pictures disgusting and stupid to do such thing in sacred places I have to say that the 5.000 baht fines is much more proportional to the gravity of what they did to many other wishes of fine that other people (and mainly wannabe Thai expats) suggested.

    Looking to meet expats in their 20s/30s

    I am 31 and living here and yes like some other member said just look around a bit and maybe you can find some friends my age. As for me I am not interested as you are not single...

    Can you ever come first?

    I not see much difference between thai families and Italian ones. We also have bigger families and we usually have one pair of the grandparents living in the house (of course separated apartment) and me and my sisters give some money to my parents. But we will get mostly back as we will get an apartment sooner or later... I guess in Northern Europe it's much different but I don't know...

    Booze sales banned on beach starting in Oct.

    It always amazes me how they are able to find new ideas to make it hard for tourists to enjoy simple things like a beer on the beach. They better go clean it instead of making stupid rules!
  5. I have been to Koh samet for 3 times and never paid any national fee... I would pay if they ask and at the ticket gate I always greeted the guards and they greet me back. Nobody checks and nobody ever mentioned about national park ticket.

    What is the "Coolest" Bike Made in Thailand?

    Stallions Centaur max250
  7. Hello! I plan to have a motorbike tour from Pattaya to Koh Kood and I would like to know which ferry I have to use if I want to bring my bike with me (I don't want to park it on the mainland just for renting a scooter when on the island). Thank you for advice!
  8. He is the first guy who can say: "I got fined by police for having sex in Pattaya" lol Sense of the story: its safer not to pay for the girl ???
  9. Yes so it is... google Swiss Statement or couple study hiv. Like someone on here said the way the people think about this disease (like 30 years ago) and how it is medically threated now is completely another story.
  10. Reading the comments I must to say that Jingthing is a very educated person and probably one of the few who think about every point of view before making a comment... and yes I think there is more to know about the news than what is written
  11. Yes I ate one on a motocross trip in Laos when I was hosted by a friendly family somewhere in the jungle... the other two dishes were morning glory and dog.
  12. Go to meet her parents than you will know... happened to me once and when I met her dad he was looking like this so I knew she was genuine http://kpitalrisk.free.fr/images/stars/44000/s_44383mum1.jpg

    Rape of Russian woman reported in Pattaya

    Good for her that they cover her face in the picture and don't name her in the article. I read many other news sometimes really embarrassing for the victim as well where the victim get named and the face can be seen. It seems like russians have far more rights in Thailand than farangs of other countries. Honestly now she should get named too as no sign of rape but she ruined the reputation of the guy in news before. This rape thing is often used from women to damage a guy when they don't get what they want.
  14. Of course I have a receipt, my gf talked to other "thai" co-owners who moved the aircon from the floor up next to the roof and they told her they never had problems doing so. It is not installed between my unit and the neighboor but on the wall of my balcony, it is installed on the side far away from the neighboor. My unit is a corner unit. After I paid the deposit for doing the renovation the owner asked me to borrow her 5.000 baht that she needed to pay her mothers "hospital" bill which of course I didn't gave her.
