    Central Festival opens at 10 am now

    Good idea. The card credit is valid for 30 days. Don't leave it sitting on the table when you eat though... one time I had a card loaded to 300 baht snatched right under our noses at Big C Extra.

    Testosterone, steroids, etc.

    Testoviron Depot is the best option. If you buy UG lab stuff, there's always a good chance it's fake.

    Testoviron Depot you should be able to buy at any local pharmacy. Try Fascino if they have one over there. The other two are underground lab drugs which cannot be legally sold in Thailand. They don't allow discussing that on this forum, and frankly, you're best off staying away from them. They have no use in TRT.

    Unemployment in Thailand: stats and facts

    We don't all know that, and most of us (non-Americans) don't care. I certainly don't waste my time examining US unemployment figures.

    T21 big bird has landed

    Actually, that's not true. Most of the shops which occupy the larger malls are franchises and the prices are the same in all malls, old or new.

    There are many malls in Thailand but I live in Pattaya where currently there's only one real mall. It's nice to have a choice, so yes, it's very exciting.
  7. LOL. Yeah. I'll just pay the extra and have it in a nice bottle.

    I liked your post for the most part, but it's a pity you spoiled it with a shot at Trump. Enough already. We don't all live in the US, you know... and opinions on Trump differ.

    T21 big bird has landed

    I see figures that suggest it's smaller than Central. Central: 200,000m2 retail podium, and the T21 site claims 180,000m2 gross area. I also see 240,000m2 claimed on the fact sheet for Central. http://www.terminal21.co.th/pattaya/en/project-component/ http://cpn-th.listedcompany.com/misc/PTYB FactSheet.pdf I don't believe T21 has a department store, which would give Central the illusion it's smaller if you don't take that large area (22,000m2), which spans 5 floors, into consideration.
  10. Putting words in my mouth again. Just because I see most of the media outlets spinning stories all day long doesn't mean I'm concluding that all news is spin, and I already apologized to you for upsetting you with "all". If a story interests me I always dig deeper for different accounts. You're not the only one who knows where to look, but you certainly come across as a know-it-all. I was referring to the serious people who constantly argue here, not the quality of the news. I'll leave it at that. No doubt you'll be having the last word. Bye!
  11. Watching the news is entertainment for me. I don't watch cable news to get all stressed out. I don't mind the spin. Watching everyone else's problems makes me forget about my own. It's escapism. I know some people spend nearly all day on the news threads on Thaivisa and take it all very seriously. Each to their own.

    You don't get it. It's not about you and what food YOU like. I also hardly ever eat at food courts, but that's irrelevant. 10 of thousands do eat at the food court at T21 in Bkk. It's a huge area and it's almost impossible to get a seat it's that popular. You have to queue up to get food tickets and queue up again to get change - it's THAT popular... and it was still cheap 5 years after it opened. I have no reason to believe T21 in Pattaya will be any different. As I said, it's their calling card. It gets people up to the top level. It's still cheap about 5 years after it opened. They would be crazy to change their model of good food court food and reasonable prices because it works. Do you have any reason to believe that their operational models will be different to the BKK T21?
  13. Whoops! Sorry! You got hung up on the "all". I should have said "most" or "a lot of". There's a lot of people here who like to split hairs and I should be more mindful of that. The comment was not about truth vs lies, but about "spin". There's a big difference. Most truth can be spun. The original comment I made was in reply to a member show suggested the press secretary is always lying and the media are always telling the truth.

    There's nothing silly about comparing a BKK mall to a Pattaya mall. Of course, the only malls to compare with currently are Central Mall and Harbor Mall, until T21 opens. They all look the same inside. You can compare it to any other mall in Thailand. I'll put money down their food court will be the best and cheapest in Pattaya. It's their calling card.
  15. That's an interesting theory, but I'm calling bs on it. Name a press secretary that outed the administration they worked for and kept their job. You're also extremely naive to think the press is reporting without bias. It's all spin, in one direction or another.
