Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Myself and another 2p2er (myironthumb) are looking at moving to Ko Samui for a year. Looking for a pretty balla place nearish to the beach and needs internet obv. preferably a pool aswell and at least 2 bedrooms.

Anyone recommend any good sites for long term rentals like this?. I've found a few which are solid but i think there may be cheaper to had

cheers

Down here in the islands, it is almost ALWAYS going to be better to come and stay in a guesthouse/hotel for a few weeks and do some on the ground hunting (preferably with a Thai speaking/Thai person). The best deals are from Thai owners/landlords and NOT from farang owned and English advertised properties.

good trick also is to have the thai call them and find out the price before you go check the place out, and have the thai make no mention of the fact that a farang is actually going to be renting it...make them think its for the thai. once they've already quoted you the thai price, they can't take it back

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

I saw this question asked early in the thread, but I didn't see it answered(sorry if I skimmed over it, but its a long thread and I'm trying to get through it all quickly)....

Can you talk about the sports culture there. Is there anything resembling a gym to work out at nearby?

What are the main sports there? Would I have any chance of ever getting a pick up basketball game anywhere?

Other than muay thai fighting, are there other professional athletic events to go watch? Any team sports?

I don't see many fat Thai people(at least not compared to Americans), so I'd assume that fitness is somewhat important to their culture, no?

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

You should learn a bit thai before getting here, the girls finds it cute, its fun throwing around random phrases :-)

Took a real girl home last night, having job at MBK, and went boom boom all night. She was way better than the first one.

Btw, what condoms to choose if I need them to NOT brake?

There are gyms in areas where foreigners tend to live. You can buy roids at the local pharmacy without a prescription if you want.

I think it's more a matter of diet. You see lots of fat Thai kids who eat crappy western food.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

I'm seriously considering visiting and moving. As per usual I'm trying to convince my buddy Assani to come with me.

First question, it is possible to play basketball in bangkok? Is there gyms and such where you can go play?

Second question, is at all possible to get football or basketball on satellite? This is of the utmost importance to me and us for that matter.

Third question, my friend is a beer snob. Do they have Sierra Nevada pale ale or Blue moon beer available?

Also I would like to add, that I have spoken with the Thai embassey in DC and they told me that it is okay to bring Adderall into the country as long you have in its orignal bottle and a script with it. So that helps me and others I would assume.

you know it's a capital city with millions of people living there, so yeah.

Espn is available and football and stuff too probably

Third question, my friend is a beer snob. Do they have Sierra Nevada pale ale or Blue moon beer available?

Nobody drinks that outside of the us, he will get used to local piss ( or go to the german pubs )

Your friend is only pretending to be into beer. No real beer snob likes Blue Moon. There's a place in Bangkok called Belgian Beer Paradise. I'm not sure if they have other premium beers, but I wouldn't complain if I could only drink Belgian beers for the rest of my life.

On a serious note, get the "sure, you can bring adderall into thailand" thing in writing. The last thing you want is being arrested or detained for bringing amphetamines into the country and having your excuse be "but, but, but, they told me it was ok."
edit: I'm almost positive you'd only be able to bring a 30-day supply no matter how long you plan on staying. This has to do with US law (it's a schedule III drug so the doctor has to essentially re-prescribe it every month) not Thai law. No sane doctor is going to prescribe you multiple months worth of adderall at once due to potential for abuse.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

You could send them a physical letter asking if it would be ok to bring your prescribed amount of adderall into the country. They would send you letter on the consulate's stationary saying it would be ok and you could bring this with you in case of a problem.

Just to be clear, this is on the 1% chance they're not on the same page as you or the Thai government, eg, they think you're bringing your blood pressure medication or something or falsely believe that you can get it in Thailand. Read about Thai prisons and you'll understand that you do not want to f around with drugs in any circumstance.

fwiw, I usually travel with hundreds of pills (vitamins, tylenol, antacids, antibiotics, random crap I've gotten) and have never been questioned crossing borders.

So how is the current situation in Thailand for online poker? Most sites working or have easy work arounds to get to them? How hard are they trying to block poker sites?

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

re: football
ESPN plays one random college game every week a day or two after it's played. On Sat and Sun, CNBC (on standard cable) plays the previous week's Mon and Sun night NFL games. There are also ways of watching live games if you have a fast internet connection...
