Re: Ask us about Thailand!

As people in this thread only sleep with HISO good girls, probably the wrong place for that question.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

Thailand has always been an off/on again thing for me, for various reasons. Lately I'm back into degen mode and have been doing some research and found some new kinda unsettling rumors I guess.

1. Police crackdown on bars. Apparently the government is raiding the bars and having a big crackdown on sex tourism. I definitely would not want to end up in a Thai prison, and afaik prostitution is illegal, right?

2. Increased crime/sleaze of Nana Plaza. My friend and I figured somewhere close to NEP/Soi Cowboy would be the best considering it'd be our first time down in Thailand. I've been reading a lot of stuff about West Africans around (specifically Guiilvers??) doing some pretty shady ****/being abrasive towards tourist. In general the consensus of NEP was that is had gotten a lot worse in the past few years, and that Soi Cowboy was the only place to be.

3. Best hotel to stay at in ranks of Saftey/Internet/Location of hookers? Basically just looking to grind/bang hookers/meet some 2p2rs for a month.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

just found out my unlocked g1 will work in thailand with a prepaid AIS or similar carrier card. does anyone use this phone over there to tether wireless internet to their laptop to play pokerstars of FTP?

Also, if you know whether the AIS data service speed is good enough to run sites like stars that would be really great. I'll be staying in phuket and samui btw!

Is it edge? I have found that if I have like 2 bars of edge in california I can run pokerstars just fine. T-moble edge also is known to be pretty slow in general....

I've used a Nokia E72 tethered with DTAC/Happy sim card in the town of Patong, and also in Udon Thani to play some cards.. I've played only max 2 tables, and keep the other internet programs to a minimum.. It works ok, every now and again it will drop, but can reconnect quick enough. I just payed 212 baht (199+tax) for 50+50free hours of internet for the month on a prepaid sim.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

I just agreed to sign a lease tomorrow for a Condo in bkk, it's an ideal situation being close to everything, and especially the skytrain. And I only had to pay a half month deposit instead of the usual 2 or 3 month crap. Apparently, the lady has another room that will be available, not certain though.

However, the entire condo is wired with TOT internet and I've read its had some bad reviews, OTOH, I've read its pretty good in some cases. If it sucks is there some sort of wireless option I can use?

Very coincidentally I was in that Gullivers some time ago and I saw some of the West Africans you're probably talking about. Seemed pretty shady and I do remember them getting in some kind of problem with some other people. I don't know much about how bad it is since I've only been there once..

Ignore the Africans at Gullivers, they are trying to pull some scams on you and they can also get you into a fight. I think there was a long thread about it on pattaya addicts.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

REPOST from chatter thread-

Having been in thailand for a year now i wish i knew as much thai as say kotkis, but being i am lazy i do not. i have however learned what i feel to be the essentials which i would like to share. I personally prefer a girl that speaks little to no english as this means she doesnt go with a bunch of foreigners every night and isnt on some money driven mindset/ a bunch of other reasons i dont care to explain. When i first got here and wanted to speak to random girls that i saw while going about town but didnt know how to do it if they didnt speak english..it sucked. so i set out to learn some basics which you can apply far as setting things up some of it maybe not be perfect but if you can say what is written she will understand

#1-Talking to a thai girl in Thai (basics)

khun chu arai?
whats your name?
Answer / if she asks you-
pom chu ______
my name is ______

khun mee fen mai?
you have boyfriend/girlfriend? the word fen is ambiguous far as male and female meaning.
she will answer with either
"mee" or "mai mee".
Mee fen = have boyfriend
mai mee fen = no have boyfriend
if she asks you the reply is same being

mai mee fen-
no have girlfriend

khun mee mobile mai?
do you have a mobile?

inviting her to do something-

khun yak bai disco mai?
you want to go to the disco?

khun yak bai ban pom mai?
you want go to my house?

khun yak bai doo nang?
you want go watch a movie?

--------
BONUS

when going to afterhours like spice, boss, bossy where the taxis make commision for bringing you there
to put it simply you say

"mai meter"-no meter, "mee commision" ok ?
this will get you a free taxi to any of the clubs mentioned above no matter where in bkk you are.

the police have been cracking down on prostitution since i first came here 5 years ago. once you understand their motivation for it is to make a show for political gain, while keeping the tea money vibrant, you'll realize it doesn't matter, aside from annoying **** like stretches of early closing times.

I bought a happy sim card originally, lost my Nokia e61i (a brick..but was solid had some good use for 2 1/2 years),upgrade to E72, went to DTAC store..they restored my number on a DTAC sim (30baht or so)..and I got information on all their plans...I'm on my 3rd 50hours +50 hours for 199baht..which I understand is a 3 month promotion? .. But I would get unlimited for 999baht if your connected 24/7, I think standard price for most of the data plans (12call,TOT, DTAC). I'm currently in Udon Thani..and tethering is working fine..

Going to Laos tomorrow..see how it works there.
