  1. No. She didn't mistake 500 note to a 100 note, because when the nice man at the money exchange at the Suwarnabhumi airport changed her 250 Kroner and gave her only 200 baht, she figured 500 Kroner is 400 baht and would easily cover the 343 baht fare!
  2. 100baht or 10,000baht.1 day jail or 10 years jail. what's the difference! when the human animal gets very angry, his animal part takes charge and he will stab,shoot, chop, smack,kick, bomb to cause pain or even kill and he will use anything from a needle to a B1 bomber..he just won't care. it's the violent behavior in our DNAs and it's not any different than that of chimps, gorillas and baboons... some cultures seem to be more violent than others due to social and cultural differences and possibly the climate.
  3. (-50)+(-40)= minus 90 After losing 90%, the only way they end up with 10% profit is if they bought the condo with STOLEN roubles!
  4. 2006 early afternoon about 3pm on 2nd road near P.Klang rd riding my mbike without helmet, two guys on mbike approached from behind and snatched my cheap stainless chain causing me lose balance for a moment but luckily I gained back control.
  5. Beach vendors complain about beggars

    I can only speak for Pattaya.I suggest next time you look carefully during and after sunset. You will see rats swarming.I'm not suggesting hundreds of course but several of them every 20m. or so.You get used to it after a while. Sewer seeping into the ocean isn't new. Sometimes popping out of sand but mostly invisible. And crap has only one place to go. Regardless... it is constant, as the city infrastructure can't cope with rain and sewer flowing same time. So it just rises every time it rains and voila! Environmentally sensitive watchdog web sites post photos of this phenomenon almost twice a week. But you don't have to take my word for all these if you don't see none of these. peace
  6. Beach vendors complain about beggars

    trash, sewer, rats, never-ending looping vendors, jetski mafia and now aggressive beggars? what's the world coming to!
  7. Beach vendors complain about beggars

    exactly! just like the Romani clans all over Europe generating millions of dollars a year, sending it back to a Romanian town called Buzescu 100 Kms South of Bucharest, full of multi-million dollar villas built by the "donations"
  8. well maybe not too low key anymore as there are too many of them ganging up
  9. yeah.back in 2010 or so, there were only a handful on WS. The police probably left them alone as they didn't pose danger to competition and having a garden variety of "flowers" was ok. But the word got around fast in Africa how these "tourist" hookers were making $100+ a night without a need of a pimp and with total impunity. And by 2016, I could count at least 50 if not more of them any given night which probably didn't sit well with BIB and the mafiosos running their show on Walking street. Actually I have to admit these ladies are pretty low-key and don't cause any trouble even though they are not on top of my menu as I am not into XL size :)
  10. why would any talking be necessary to reach my conclusion?..besides it is probably the same way how you came up with
  11. it all depends how much money you invested in the failed project. 1M-5M or more? a bit?how much is a bit? if that "overpriced" value is more than what you already invested, I'd walk away with my loss, buy a bottle of scotch and see who's gonna finish who first, the bottle or you :)...and then move on. you still trust those vultures? they already dry-cleaned you once!
  12. I know of one project 100% finished(can't name it here) and some (I think 10% of) investors have moved in by paying off 100% but the project has title issues and no one has a title yet as developer can't seem to obtain the title for a long time now. The rest of the owners are reluctant to pay-and-move-in if there is no title. its a stalemate for now but there is a bad smell and stinks to high heaven. Interiors are horribly low quality finished by the way, not even remotely close to showroom units.Walls out of plumb and doors coming off the hinges etc.
  13. or the banks do lend, would lend, could lend but also require solid collateral . Most farang developers(here I'm talking about honest, straight-shooter developers) do not own collateral in Thailand so that tosses that possibility out of the window. And smart developer would not pay for anything out of pocket anyway since there are so many pu$$y whipped drooling farangs ready to invest in a pie in the sky. That is exactly why they have their flashy kiosks run by russian models in malls collecting massive amounts of down payments almost two years before even any worker lays a hand on a construction tool.(again, I am still talking about honest developers) it's sad. it's pretty exciting for some, to own their own condo and call it "home". Some older expats are quite vulnerable because they don't even have a house back home to go back to. And they fall in the net like a sardine. Most constructions normally do get completed, have already completed however! But there are some which don't for various reasons, mostly illegal practices.
  14. this $hit happens or happening now(more than ever) all over the world. it's just there are too many of us everywhere! Cities are too overcrowded and everybody is on top of one another. not enough resources or jobs to go around. Stray dogs are everywhere,running hungry, desperate and willing to resort to capital crime even! this is the point where societies "crack" and morality or religion means jack. next generation of criminals will be even tougher and I feel sorry for the newly born babies who will make up the next generation of victims
  15. initially the "vultures" left no traceable amount of flesh on "victims".It's now up to the "dogs" to finish off their leftover bones! After all, it's all organic matter and all edible for some!
