    List Of Favourite Restaurants In Phuket

    Greetings,,,, old school here, great shot of Franco at Modena. Super memories and yes good food there. X report of Ronnie passing, horrible ! He was the main chef at a place I did business with way back when, KanEang @ Pier & good guy. Sorry to hear that report. He was a talent and the food quality in HKT just took a big hit. Cheers to all, CYA GOM
  2. Horrible tragedy, and yes in Northern CA lots of twists and turns, sorry to see that this driver missed the turn and went off what looks to be a very steep cliff. WVAvin- of course here in the US they recover cars but if you were to understand the extent of the rescue mission and personnel involved, it's not like an inebriated Eastern Euro went off a relatively modest cape at Rawai viewpoint. Big cliffs in No. CA.

    Russian stabbed in Phuket home

    Hell hole apartment complex in Rassada? No wonder LB stabbed him, misled that ol boy actually had some cake......
  10. The Baan Krating guy that already had a resort illegally built while Thaksin was in? No, no, this guy has huge pull and extra deep pockets. Envelope for you, oh, you too, of course you, done deal. I guess the news gets the mayor and extra thick envelope to throw it back to Sea Gypsy harrassment

    Sorry everyone seemed to have lost where to put stuff, formatting dilemmas..... anyway NKM: NOPE ! Wrong again with an inference/putting words in poster's mouths/ NKM speculation. Merely commenting on this one poster. BTW after all these years and posts why don't you put up an avatar? Maybe a taxi with the circle and line through it? Just a thought.

    Kabula a piece of work, huh? Reminds me of a poster a few years back who would post similar alarmist rhetoric as a way to pitch his security service. Over/under bets on how much time this poster has actually physically spent in Phuket anyone? I say the line is 2 weeks, all spent on Bangla being pick-pocketed by LBs and abused by yaaa-baaad up club bouncers. That might explain his views.
  15. Load of nonsense drgoon. It's just not very bright to have a bulging wallet in the back pocket in many places............I understand certain plazas in Italy, crowds in Rio; international airports can be havens for pickpockets, lo and behold beachroad in Pattaya. Moneyclip in the front pocket with cash, drivers license, ATM card is all that's necessary. That one doesn't carry a possibly stupid big wallet in the back pocket is a "cheap charlie"? Hardly mate, maybe just smarter than average/ haven't done a whole lot of traveling charlie.
