Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Getting drunk and bowling is always a good time with chicks you recently met.

Just call them up a few days later and tell them you want to do something. Its pretty straight forward and you dont have to jump through hoops like in the USA.

A bottle of wine or two usually makes the clothes fall right off.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Wow. What's the buzz? Muslims from the south or some kind of domestic faction?

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

This is unprecedented in the history of Thailand from what I've read. Condolences to all those suffering.

The latest I could find http://thainews.prd.go.th/newsenglis...d=255001010023, although as of now it seems a non-coordinated attack. Just the fact it's outside the capitol raises caution for other areas such as phuket, koh sumai, etc.

My flight is already booked 1/10-3/29. I'm totally confused. Any reaction of advice appreciated. Be safe

The only thing I can tell you is that I was out and about in Chiang Mai this morning/early afternoon and if not for these news articles I would have had no clue that any of this was happening. I haven't specifically been near Changklan Road, though.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Anyone ever bribe someone for a visa or have a story about someone who has? Whenever I mention to someone how nice it would be to get a one-year visa, the answer is always the same: anyone can get a one-year visa if they have money.

Even with the old system of unlimited 30-day visas, 30,000 baht would be an absolute bargain, I think, given that Bangkok-to-Cambodia border runs are typically 2,000 baht and ruin the better part of a day. I would guess that for someone in Chiang Mai or Koh Samui, a 50,000+ baht bribe would be worthwhile, given the added time expenditure. I'm wondering if these figures are even in the ballpark.

Apparently it's not the insurgency from the south, but politically motivated bombs having to do with the the political upheaval/coup a few months back.

Re: Ski\'s quick 2 cents on Thailand

Hey Degen, where did you say to go for plane tickets, I can't find it because this thread is enormous. Everywhere I'm looking is saying like $1600 round trip from the U.S., when people here where talking about spending half of that.

Re: Ski\'s quick 2 cents on Thailand

After reading through this thread for about 4 hours straight yesterday I really want to plan a trip and stay for about a month. It would have to be in the summer so is this a bad time to go? Is there alot of rain or does it get too hot? I can deal with some heat as it gets up to 110 heat index here in the summer.

I cant really decide if I would want to stay on an island or the mainland, but as asked above me what is your favorite island? I read up on Sumoi and it seems people complain about alot of construction going on around them all the time. So, what's your favorite beach where there's not too many people, but within a couple of miles I can get food and internet access?

Re: Ski\'s quick 2 cents on Thailand

Just to let everyone know I have a trip planned where I'll be in BKK on Feb 8. Free pool lessons to any 2+2'ers who want them. I also wouldn't mind a little help when I get there at learning the turf. PM me contact info and I hope to see y'all soon.

Thanks again to everyone for all the great info. I'm stoked.

Re: Ski\'s quick 2 cents on Thailand

The fact that you prob just met her and she's willing to take such pics makes her about 10x hotter....

Which is good because she doesn't seem very hot compared to the thai girls I've beat off to.
Either I have bad taste or those pictures don't do her justice. Those are large D's...
pretty face/appearance >>>> cup size

But that might just be my standards.

She's not gorgeous, but I'm going to do 2039430985 girls just like her when I'm there (and in fact, that's kind of the object of the exercise).

Meanwhile, this is OOT, so don't be surprised if she's rated no higher than a 3.5

BTW, if you PM me contact details I will get in touch with you when I arrive.

Re: Ski\'s quick 2 cents on Thailand

Degen can you post some pictures of your apt sometime? Your blog said it was 500 a month and I'm just curious what 500 a month gets you in BKK.

Also what are your total living bills a month (apt. + internet +power/water/whatever but not food and [censored])

Pics of his apartment are earlier in the thread.

As for the girl, the [censored] are nice, but I'm starting to think I prefer Koreans or Japanese.

Re: Ski\'s quick 2 cents on Thailand

If I remember correctly, in an earlier post, someone said you could get a live-in maid for $200-300 per month. What (obv. non-sexual) things would they do? Would they cook and go shopping for you, or would this be extra? Could they act as a quasi-secretary and answer the phone and plan things for you?

Re: Ski\'s quick 2 cents on Thailand

iron81,

I just hit show all and went through the whole thread twice. I saw southerndog's house in Chiang Mai (my favorite place when I was there), the three places beats lived in Bangkok, and farang0's awesome house on Koh Samui that cost 250 a month, but I did not see any pictures of degen's pad. Are you sure they are buried in this huge thread?
