  1. In reality sure its a mess but when all the stuff is picked up it is not so bad , yes clean reset the bed and micro clean the areas where liquids have been spilt . I think the initial shock is far greater than the actual damage as I had the same done to me only in Western countries we had carpet which had to be replaced but apart from all the rubbish and shit which can be picked up and disposed of there is nothing that can't realy be easily fixed , sofa curtains fridge ....what else . Peraps the landlord will be more astute to the quality of his tennant . Admittedly 30k is off the wall .I had a 3 bed with 3 ensuite 9k /mth . 20 but be creeping up but 30k can rent a whole house !!! 30k for that small refined space obvious they were oblivious to the thousands of rental bargains out there. Perhaps the tennants were expecting a rubbish removal service that they thought came with the letting!

    Why is Songkran disliked by so many Expats?

    First time in Pattaya Songkran enjoyed and ever since then 5 later , Now hate it with a passion!!!! Would be so nice if just a calm polite wet not a dangerous loud soaking . I have lost 3 good people to the stupidity of this festival I think its developed out of control , Why cant it be done in one or 2 blocks where the idiots can be idiots 24 hrs if they like why disrupt other decent folk whom dont share the same idiosy. Love great tunes but man I can't get myself anywhere round the menotinous beat and horns sounding garbage they dance to.It is "[email protected]##$$5!!!! Top it off with the your empty headed stupid mentality the looks and motions and drunkedness ,the deaths and you start to realize just how wired differently the people of this place really is . I am of the belief that this race of polluting self centered selfish and most of all STUPIDITY can never change for anything better and I am really saddened to say that . It cant change as the majority don't and no fault of their own have any education to know any better. But on the other side some folk enjoy the wild lawlessness side and who cares if people die or get injured.

    Road safety rules now in full force

    Hey Bad news for those folk hoping to get and wear one of the new electronic bracelets that are in fashion this songkran. The Govt underestimated the number ordered only 5000 and rumour has it that around 2700 were snapped up on the first day of issue by now there are only few left to be handed out only to those who manage to blow highest scores. So cheers and usual driving everything back to normal!

    Think of all the easy revenue they are missing????
  5. Probably just discussing which ones going to play the girl!!
  6. They have to go to the scene and do the reinactment so they fully understand what went on!!!!
  7. Don't you think considerable speed may have been a attributing factor as a car doing 60 - 70 k surely wouldn't have propelled that far in with a force to tip it. So sad to see this thai society so backward in their attitude to road use and safety!
  8. Yep Keith I agree with you , I have seen 3 blow up in my time here ,One was opposite Lucifer night club when walking street was quite active about 8pm ,The noise and sparks hot metal frightened everyone . another went off near the condo I lived in on cosy beach hill 6am ,I swear the ground shook. Whats in them that makes them explode?? Doesn't seem to occur in western world least I never heard of it. You would think being bomb like they should be caged or well away from the public . Imagine walkin pissed one night and having that go off above you it does appear to be a common occurance .
  9. Quite obviously not fast enough!!!
  10. I don't get your post either . Thailand beaches are already a dump pit!!!!!
  11. Are you still allowed to breathe here???? Or is that a crime too??
  12. Hey thats the answer a great idea!! They should put the prices well up , that will cut the numbers going there give them less work and have more or least same amount of revenue to fix stuff! not that they really do fix in reality but it should least line the same pocket whilst solving their overcrowding problem . Obviously is too affordable as is.
