  1. Nja, If he took off to Pattaya, that exactly where he is now!
  2. Somebody just stole a piece of your land!
  3. Dynamite works for most of things. Mungo! Staying inside also has an advantage. Otherwise it´s just to keep killing the little irritating long bastards.
  4. Are we talking money, or what! This dude knows how to do it big time! Just that it´s also going to give him big time!
  5. Nja, A1 and HP sauce is not going to make you fly when you want brown sauce. It´s even a disgrace that somebody even would try to compare that crap with a real brown sauce. Shame! Now it´s going to be real simple. If your missus can fix bacon, scrambled eggs and toast you would easily get her to fix you a nice brown sauce. This ain´t rocket sience. Here we are talking a simple creamy and tasty Espagnole, that can easily be made into a Bordelaise sauce or a Brown mushroom Sauce. Keep the good face up! Here it comes..... Brown Sauce ½ cup onions, diced ¼ cup carrots, diced ¼ cup celery, diced 1 oz butter 1 oz all-purpose flour 3 cups brown stock (i.e. beef stock) You can use Knorr if you ain´t picky! 2 Tbsp tomato purée 1 bay leaf ½ tsp thyme 3–4 fresh parsley stems 7–8 whole black peppercorns Fold the bay leaf, thyme, parley stems and peppercorns in a square of cheese cloth, and tie the corners with a piece of kitchen twine. Leave the string long enough so that you can tie it to the handle of your pot to make it easier to retrieve it. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, melt the butter over a medium heat until it becomes frothy. Add the mirepoix and sauté for a few minutes until it's lightly browned. Don't let it burn, though. With a wooden spoon, stir the flour into the mirepoix a little bit at a time, until it is fully incorporated and forms a thick paste (this is your roux). Lower the heat and cook the roux for another five minutes or so, until it just starts to take on a very light brown color. Don't let it burn, though! Using a wire whisk, slowly add the stock and tomato purée to the roux, whisking vigorously to make sure it's free of lumps. Bring to a boil, lower heat, add the sachet and simmer for about 50 minutes or until the total volume has reduced by about one-third, stirring frequently to make sure the sauce doesn't scorch at the bottom of the pan. Use a ladle to skim off any impurities that rise to the surface. Remove the sauce from the heat and retrieve the sachet. For an extra smooth consistency, carefully pour the sauce through a wire mesh strainer lined with a piece of cheesecloth. Yummy! And all you can find in Big C or Macro, Tops, Tesco Lotus There´s nothing like the real stuff, Dude! If you can´t teach, it´s worth all the time spent with the pots all by yourself. Cheers!
  6. Wow! Yep, but then I just beat you with 3 years. Been living here for 17 years. No, Money trees in the yard does not work, but if you stay here legally you can easy have one or more bank accounts here. As for living here 14 years, you would be aware of that. You just made it even more stupid to use a foreign ATM for 14 consecutive years and complain about the fee. By the way, I am as real as they come. You on the other hand seems to live in the blue. I just found a better way to withdraw, like it seems. Doesn´t it? At least I save 220 Bath everytime I take out money. Have a nice weekend! Cheers
  7. Take a note folks! Always look at what you put in your mouth.......
  8. Yeah! Free him so that they can do the same again. Last time it work well, right Mr. Watson?
  9. Very stupid. I guess there is no measurement to the level of stupidity.
  10. This is an old story. It has been like this for eternity, or at least since they started with taxi´s in bkk. The worst thing is that the switchboard and organisation that the taxi drivers are connected too, are allowing this to continue. Would be better they just sack the bad apples, because there are many. That will give a chance for many others that really want to work in this sector to earn more fares. Bastards is what they are! Also the same with refusing to use the meter and creating their own prices for fares??? That is also something that should be clamped down on hard. It stands TaxiMeter on the roof of the car! Then they must use the meter. Quite simple for normal metality and an ordinary level of intelligence. Just as we all know, it´s been a sign up for intelligence here long time. Maybe it´s refused at the border!
  11. No, no, no! The pure fact is that you are the one that gladly pay the fee by using a foreign ATM card. I guess nobody forced you to do that, right?
  12. Just have one little relevant comment to all this. Let´s say that it´s okey to eat stray dogs. I mean it´s not nice to steal dogs that somebody loves. There I can understand the true meaning of a relationship with the dog, as maybe your best friend. However, stray dogs are appearently animals that nobody loves. Then it must be okey to eat them. If all the people that cry and comment so much for them, everytime it comes to a discussion about this type of animal, love them so much then they would take care of them and give them a home. So, eat only stray dogs, to be on the safe side of humanity. That is because even the genuine doglovers that try to give them their free rights, just doesn´t care enough about them. It´s a true sight everyday on the streets of Thailand. Yeah, I know I am going to be bashed to death for this one.
  13. Pigs are probably not the best bomb-sniffers in the world. Can have something to do with that.
  14. Yeah, sure! Maybe they need too put a limit on how many cars are allowed to drive on the road att the same time, or what do you think? What bribes? They were talking about fines!
