Re: Thailand returns

the owner of their building sold it and now they are going to tear it down, too bad for them. i don't hear from them anymore either. maybe they got aids or went to jail for having sex with children

Check out ratestogo dot com. Prices are cheap this time of year and you get get 4-5 stars for the 100$/night range. Actually down to 60$/night on 4 stars. I stayed at Windsor Suites a couple of weeks back and it was super nice if you get a suite on the suites tower.

The new govt post coup is basically the same guys than before the coup minus thaskin.

They handle the economy and their public image awfully, the thai people are not impressed by ultra populist pointless policies anymore ( buying the rice for a ton of money, giving away lands and so on)
There are riots and strikes just about everywhere ( farmers in the north, fishermen in the south, middle class and transporters in bangkok ect... )

The new govt. wants to reform the constitution once again ( 6 months old ) one of their main modification would concern the exact thaskin case : if the reform is done thaskin can not only come back in Thailand like nothing happened but all the charges would be dropped and his money would be given back.

Recently a judge working on the case of high level politicians found 2 millions bahts in a lunchbox for "share", right in the middle of the tribunal. The guy who deposited the box is the lawyer of "a high profile politician closely linked to thaskin". It didn't calm the protesters ( united under the flag of the PAD People Alliance for Democracy, movt. linked to the socialist party )

Right now the parliament is under siege despite the 8000 policemen defending it.

Most people are waiting for a new coup in the next 6 months. This is only is the king survives, in case of death of the king stock sugar and first necessity supplies.

Re: Thailand returns

Just had a "only in thailand" moment.

Got a phone call to my landline, a very excited woman speaking very fast in thai.
Told her that i don't understand and can't speak thai. She just says ok, thank you and hang up.

5 minutes later somebody knocks on my door.
I open it to see 3 girls in pyjamas ( the sexy kind ) and the security guy. They try to say something in thai, but I still can't understand.
They proceed to enter my room and the security guy rush on my balcony and jumps. I was a bit worried but he only jumped on the next door balcony.

Then he comes back via the balcony with a fourth girl in pyjama and the three other ones start clapping and cheering. The new girl rushes outside and come back to give me a plate of larb moo with sticky rice.

they say thank you so much and leave. My room now smells heavily of cheap female perfume.

I'm confused.

Edit: there is now some loud thai music playing, I'm going to go there with a beer or two. I mean come on 4 girls in pyjamas!
