Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Bamboo. It didn't hurt that much at all and I'm a pretty big wuss when it comes to that stuff. Took like 40 minutes for the whole thing. 1400 baht (asking price was 2500) If I ever get another Tat I'm definately going back to the same dude. He said he's been in business 10 years, right on Haad Rin about 5 doors down from this:


fuuuuck, this thread is sooo depressing. Just makes me want to quit school and go travelling again. sdfjknbdskfjbdsf.

Is the place you are talking about have 2 pool tables and a massage parlor in it too?

I don't know what the restaurant was called, but it had log tables and had an extra area across the road as well. Kind of by the reggae bar (or at least towards the reggae bar from chicken corner and then it was on the right hand side somewhere-- extra area on left hand side). try the pad thai there. It's kinda different than traditional pad thai, but sooo addicting.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Degen how do you know who is a hooker and not? We are a company now here in thailand and it feels like every girl here is a hooker.
One night my friend even asked 3-4 people and they all told him that she was just a ordinary girl, but when they got home she started talking about $ and he sent her away.

We are going to Koh Samui in a few days, is it the same there?

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Where are you meeting these girls?

In a bar its very likely that most girls there are whores. Normal thai girls do go out and party but they will be a little more mellow.

-The whores dress trashy where as normal chicks are a little more conservative.
-Whore are loud and crave attention. Most normal thai chicks wont be activly seeking out males in a bar. They will also be shy and wont aproach you most of the time.

Its always good to question the girl too. Get some info from here, see what she does and if she is a student, etc.

Samui has tons of whore because there are a lot of trashy little bars and farang looking for whores. There are some more upscale places where it is possible to meet nicer girls though.

Check out the samui branch of Q-bar near the lake in Chaweng.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

it is very easy to tell who is a prostitute. after you are here a few months you will be able to pick them out v easy. if i see a western guy with a thai girl, 95% of the time i can tell if she is a bar girl, and would be willing to wager thousands of dollars.

the way she dresses, the way she interacts with him, the words she uses, what she says, how she says, how she makes contact with him, the cloths she wears, the look in her eyes when I (another farang) makes eye contact with her, etc, etc. this is just looking at her. of course, the easiest tell is when she has a look of pure and outer boredom on her face.

normal girls with farang are usually all giggling, look like they are interested in him. dress different, act different, etc, etc.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Why cant you run to 7/11 and buy more condoms?

I've never had thai food, but I love chinese food and I'm ok with japanese food. How similar are they? Thai food is very spicy, right? Keep in mind I mean American "chinese" food.

You said there isn't really American food in Thailand, but what about chinese/japanese food in Thailand? If so, is it similar to what's here, or more like real ethnic chinese food? If that makes sense.

I'm also guessing that you eat a lot of seafood?
the seafood is amazing, far better than in america.

its kinda hard to describe thai food if you haven't had it. some stuff is gonna seem very weird to you...like a whole fish cooked and set on a plate. you got the head and the eyeballs and all the skin etc. you just cut it open and eat it.

i love it, go to a thai restaurant to try it out. The Lotus of Siam in Las Vegas is a pretty amazing Thai restaurant and is as close to authentic as I've seen in the states

Wow, cool thread. Regarding the seafood, there is one Baller ass seafod resturant in Bangkok. Its where a lot of foreigners and rich Thai's go. Just ask the taxi driver to take you to the best seafood place.

Anyway, so once you get into the resturant, you get a shopping cart, and you walk down a long ass isle of seafood. They have every type of seafood that you can think of. You pick out what you want and then pay for the seafood first. Then you take your seat and the waiter will come and ask you how you want all your stuff prepared. You can have it cooked thai style or however you want. Me and my buddies ended up getting the biggest lobster tails that we ever had; we had those grilled with butter. We had tom yam soup with jumbo schrimp and a couple other seafood stir fry dishes. Definately a don't miss if your a seafood lover.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Sounds like a pretty half-assed 3-some if you only [censored] one of them. I will give you credit for a 2 and a half some but thats it.

Now its saturday so go stock up on rubbers and come back here with a real 3-some trip report.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Dudes. We were in patong so I guess that's a mini-pattaya or something. About asking the girls if they are whores? Yeah, I had 2 friends who did that, one of them even got the bartender and then proceeded to ask people IF the girl was a whore and even the girl.

Then come to the room and wake me up and tell me to go sleep somewhere else, fastforward a few minutes and she says give me $$$ (to my friend ofcoz).

My other friend had the same mishap. I saw both of the girls and I was not drunk so im going to assume I was somewhat conscious. They both looked like normal girls, no miniskirts, make up galore, [censored] out n stuff. I dunno, my theory was that they were normal girls but just took the opportunity to take a payment because they can?

Hot as [censored] here. Im used to +5C being a heatwave.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Also, what does ayo tao rai mean?

What's up with the Taxi-Meters in Bangkok, if you put on the meter they will take some strange roads to get more money out of you. If you just give them cash upfront or agree on a price they will drive you straight to your destination. For example from Skytrain Nana to MBK, it is a straight trip but not if you put on the meter

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Should have been ayuuuu tao rai which means "How old are you"

Taxis can be a pain. If you know a little thai it help. I basically get in and tell me where to take me and then make a comment about how I want to go there fast and the best route. If I sense that we are taking a detour I will imidiatly question him and ask him where the [censored] he is going. Sometimes they take sideroads to avoid traffic that they saw earlier but sometimes they are just trying to get a few extra baht out of you.

As a general rule, if you are picking up a girl in a bar then she is a whore. This is not ALWAYS true but it is for the most part. If you want to [censored] a real thai girl without paying you wont be able to the first night you meet her. There are some thai chicks who like to go out and hook up but for the most part its mostly whores.

I was at the airport flying out and I saw this super pasty nerd hugging his thai "girlfriend" for at least 5 minutes while crying, and the girl had this look of boredom on her face (behind his back of course) like she was in a physics lecture. I couldn't stop laughing and she saw me laughing and smiled. I really wish I could have taken a picture. It was some funny [censored]


edit

Degen I think it means hope you wake up with the gift that keeps on giving

why would you want to take a taxi here? just take the skytrain it goes straight to mbk. hassle free in 5 minutes.

deg,
i was scared that you only had one condom so you did the other one bareback.
