Re: Ask us about Thailand!

what are you getting revenge for? she saved you from your own stupidity. there's good money in selling Falang some real E and then getting him busted with it. have fun extracting your beatdown/getting her back.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

Best way to get revenge is to tell some horrible fat smelly sex tourist that she's awesome in bed and direct him to her bar.

Its funny cause she can't say no if the boss is around!

If there's one thing I've learned in Thailand it is that some **** is just not worth fighting over. BUT THIS IS NOT ONE OF THOSE THINGS!!! DON'T LET THESE MOTHER ****ERS GET AWAY WITH THIS BS!!!!!!!!!

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

rang the bell and ran off, small moral victory even tho it has absolutely no effect on her.

on a side note best place to pick up really fit girls is designer shops / beauty shops in the shopping mall.

i have been looking into it a bit. I had a rep from a thai company visit, presented some huge packages for 70k+. i also got a quote through the thaivisa insurance links, some interesting stuff there. LMG looks very good, but i cant say i have read the small text yet.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

you can get basic emergency health insurance for 6 months around a £100, 5/10 million cover for air ambulance to england/western world etc. problem is the get out clauses. so if you have bike accident after couple of beers or not wearing helmet ( which has got to be most likely for me or most i would think) it aint worth the paper its written on.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

I got a DUPA link from thaivisa, they seem to have a personal coverage plan for 10baht a day. It probably has terrible coverage, but I'm gonna check out their office on Monday.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

is it worthwhile going on the riverboat along Chao Phraya and checking out some of the palaces? It's hot as **** here and you can't wear shorts in some of the buildings. Or would you guys recommend something else to go sightsee during the day (Bangkok)

Thailand and Australia are a fair bit different.

Thailand: Cheap, liberal , hot chicks, good fun.
Australia: Expensive, Nanny State, Fat Chicks, Pubs shut at 12 and shops at 5.

Choose wisely.
