  1. yeah it that ugly one

    "Stunning building" and "Bangkok" in the same sentence is an oxymoron. Just like with the women. A lot of people say Thai women are beautiful. I just don't see it myself. Fine if you like your woman to have the body of a teenage boy, I guess, or in fact, maybe they actually were a teenage boy a few years earlier.
  2. Villa Market Suk Soi 11 Closed Today, Relocating

    Vastly overpriced imported food for foreign idiots foolish enough to throw their money away on it. You're in Thailand, eat locally produced food for god's sake.
  3. Canned salmon in Bangkok

    Canned salmon is rubbish and toxic. Avoid it like the plague. As you should with all 'farmed' salmon. You should only ever eat wild Pacific salmon that isn't contaminated with radionuclides from Fukushima, and that's extremely hard to get and super-expensive. My advice: stick to sardines, they're supercheap and safe.
  4. Hi there

    Never heard of Google? Learn to use it...
  5. Sukhumvit recommendations

    STRONG RECOMMENDATION: Don't stay on Lower Sukhumvit. It's a complete hole and you'll be ripped off, assaulted by ladies and men of the night constantly and treated rudely. Foreign clueless tourist ghetto central. Avoid!!!
  6. Omelet Lady

    Like most of the illegal street vendor offenders, she was rounded up and 'disappeared'. Such is life under a military junta.
  7. Bangkok Air Pollution

    Bangkok is one of the ugliest, most overcrowded and most polluted Third World cities on earth. Why anyone in their right mind would want to live in the middle of that contaminated concrete jungle is a more relevant question. Anyone care to answer?
  8. Remote work locations in BKK

    You sound like the kind of person for whom the glass is always half empty. Stop moaning and just do your work!
  9. 25? Looks more like 45. Obviously had a tough paper round. Hang him!
  10. Beer in Bangkok

    Alcohol is bad for you! That's why I never touch it. If you need alcohol to relax and enjoy yourself, I feel sorry for you.
  11. Moving to Bangkok

    I know EVERYTHING about it. Lived there for many years - but only because I had a very high salary. Otherwise, wouldn't have bothered. Even the luxury 180,000 baht a month apartment with its own private pool didn't help. What a godforsaken hole... So glad to get out to a real city, Hong Kong.
  12. Moving to Bangkok

    You'll have enough bad surprises on day 1 and after a week or two when you realize that Bangkok is one of the biggest, dirtiest, least-planned HELLHOLES on the planet... My advice is reconsider your move and give this cultureless, featureless, flat, boiling hot, stinking, filthy concrete wasteland filled with vapid morons and shopping malls a wide berth. Almost any other place in Thailand, except Pattaya of course, would be a better choice. Bangkok is a monstrosity of an urban sprawl that would be best razed to the ground and turned into a big park. Besides, most of it will be underwater within 20 years.
  13. Gym workout and protein intake

    FACT: You don't need any extra protein if you're doing workouts, unless you're a vegetarian/vegan. You can get all the protein you need from meat, unless you're a hardcore bodybuilder. Powdered protein supplements are EXTREMELY unhealthy, unnatural products that, over the years, will destroy your kidneys leaving you eventually on dialysis for the rest of your life. The body can only process a certain amount of protein. Above that normal level, protein is toxic to the liver and kidneys. That's why on average competitive bodybuilders die 25 years younger than the average non-bodybuilder male. Besides, why would you want to do that in Thailand? Asian women don't like men with big muscles. They prefer a man with a slim, more feminine look.
  14. Only last week, a stage in a bar in Nana Plaza suddenly collapsed from the combined weight of 6 young elephants shaking their bits and trying to gyrate around a pole while they wheezed and sweat dripped to the floor.
  15. Teach Thailand without formal Degree

    Forget it. You're an unqualified amateur so you'll be earning 20,000 baht a month if you're lucky. I know one or two unqualified so-called English teachers in Bangkok who are earning around that and eating all their meals on the street and sleeping without air con... Stay in your own country and get qualified. You can't afford to live in Thailand, stop dreaming.
