  2. Christmas Dinner Options 2017

    This one isn't a Christmas dinner per se, but it's holiday related and carries a great price: Aroi on the Darkside could be a good option for those who don't want a traditional U.K. or U.S. Christmas dinner two days in a row: On the Darkside yet again for Christmas dinner. but in the traditional style: Santa Penevil

    Alex mentioned Sunny's Restaurant on the Darkside in another thread, so I'll include it here. I've never been to Sunny's, but Alex knows his food. Santa Penevil

    Oops, sorry about that. It's The Haven on Soi Lengkee. From what I understand, frozen turkeys are being imported from the U.S., but are very expensive this year. Santa Penevil

    A few points regarding Christmas dinner in Pattaya. 1) If you have booked at Jolly's for Christmas or are considering it, you might want to check with the restaurant to see if anything has changed recently regarding the Christmas carvery. This ONLY concerns Jolly's. I don't know anything about the ownership structure of Jolly's, but one of (the?) owner(s) of Jolly's has a lot more to worry about than providing Christmas dinners to customers. 2) Several restaurant owners have said advanced bookings for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are way down compared to previous years. Whether this is due to fewer farang tourists in town or prices for Christmas dinner have reached the tipping point is hard to say. But I've been told by someone with insight into such matters that restaurants which in past years were fully booked by early December still have plenty of spaces with 10 days to go. 3) Another more expensive option: 4) Some details about the dinner at Chik-n-Coop (home-made fudge!!! ) Another great thing about Coop's meals is that he always has som tam and other Thai dishes so that Thai female companions have food they like. They can nibble on a bit of turkey or ham and try a spoonful of dressing to say they have eaten farang Christmas dinner, but then fill up on familiar food. Santa Penevil

    Last time I bumped into Evil he was in Phil's nice little gaffe Le Pub eating a pie and mash I seem to recall. Has young Baggie Phil got a Christmas menu I wonder ?? Really good thread I'm just not a fan of carveries or far worse for me buffets. A good carvery is rare in the West let alone LOS. I will be up country in Isaan so if young Thinkingallowed wants to fly over a sad and lonely turkey I'll send him few Baht. Fella just opened a goat farm as well nearby. Jamaican Goat Curry for Christmas hhhmmm ...spicy and nice in cold London but nah maybe not in Isaan !!!

    The one with no name is from The Haven on Soi Lengkee. I recognise it as I photographed the same thing. There's also one on the previous page with no name that I could see. Next to Cherry's menu.
  11. Christmas Dinner Options 2017

    Just a question I asked earlier, are American turkeys on the menu again or still boycotted, anybody know? Also Evil, am I blind and can not see the name of the place selling the first deal above?...... I can see Robin's Nest on the second menu.....
  12. Christmas Dinner Options 2017

    Two more at the least expensive end of the scale for Christmas buffets. Both are close to LK Metro. Santa Penevil
  13. Christmas Dinner Options 2017

    I'd of no doubt had mine at Tigglebitties if there, for the company mainly as I'm not too bothered about Xmas dinner.
  14. Christmas Dinner Options 2017

    I can vouch for that.
  15. Christmas Dinner Options 2017

    Breaking news- Chik-n-Coop Bar in the arcade next to Soi Diana is offering a Christmas buffet at 500 baht, turkey and all the trimmings.. For anyone who's had Coop's holiday meals. it's great value for money. Coop told me tonight he has 55 places left. So if you want a great Christmas dinner on Dec. 25 American Style, call in at Coop's. It's a better deal than any of the fixed-plate options. It starts at 6.00 p.m. on the 25th, get there by 5.30 p.m. if you want to be assured of a seat. Santa Penevil

    Looks a steal at that price...thanks for update,
  17. Christmas Dinner Options 2017

    In terms of that sweet spot between quality and price, the Hard Rock Cafe is looking like the best deal this year. Take a look at the info in the OP. It's where I'll be eating on Christmas Eve. To clear up some confusion about the price of this year's Santa Rock Christmas Carvery Buffet at the Hard Rock Cafe: it is 899 baht, inclusive tax and service. This year the HR is requiring pre-payment. I have erased any identifying info from the invoice. That's the SAME price it was last year without the free flow of booze option. In 2016, I paid 1,389 baht, but that included the free flow of booze. Without it, the cost last year would have been 899 baht. This year, there doesn't appear to be a free-flow option. I tried asking about the difference between the Santa Rock buffet and the BBQ buffet but unfortunately, I haven't got an answer back. I believe the only difference is that the BBQ buffet includes beef skewers and seafood. Santa Penevil
  18. biometrics are done mate.now we wait and her status remains as before until a decision is made.can work,healthcare and access public funds although that will never happen.its normality and a waiting game.happy Christmas mate.
  19. I don't know ,it should be another 3 year term,but it could be ten.we are in their hands.as we are applying outside of the rules.we had discretionary leave to remain and are looking to extend that on a a basis of a right to a family life.this includes my rights too.ive always been treated fairly by the home office,but who knows we both pay tax and ni so anything could happen.makes me sick to the core in all honesty.the application is in and hasn't been returned as incorrect.that they have acknowledged.timescales.????.last time it took 6 weeks.pretty hopeful of a get away fairly soon.im on dangerous ground but people have rights too.hopefully that is respected.

    Another expensive option, this time at the Holiday Inn: Santa Penevil
  21. Matt, I've read that you guy are waiting for the biometrics but I'm unsure what your wife's status will be after this. Is this her getting a British passport and an end of your problems or do you have more hoops to jump through after this?
  22. The EU is a club where the labour can go and work in any membership country. So UK citizens can go work in Germany, France or Poland and citizens from these countries can go work in the UK. Under the same conditions as the locals (supposedly). Once Brexit is fully implemented this will probably not be the case anymore (depending on what agreements are made between the UK and EU). That is the reason a Polish carpenter can come and enter the UK system and a Thai or Philippine cannot - they are not in "the club". You can write your MP and see if he/she will campaign to make a similar club with Thailand but I doubt you will have much success. Somewhat related - I wish Denmark would also leave the EU and get free trade agreements instead and I am sure this is a wish shared with many in the EU. Most common people have a hard time remembering when we voted to accept open borders to Eastern European builders and service workers. This has already given Germany the "gift" of working poor people and only the richest 10% benefits from it.
  23. I will say what I think now.we are about to pay the corrupt eu 39 billion.their people come here and pay nothing. I knew dave had paid it and now know phils has.its disgusting.why don't the eu lot pay it.this is racial towards UK people.
  24. I totally agree,its just one big payout every few years.people don't realise that obtaining a visa is an indication of a lot of payouts ahead.
  25. Yes i can understand it for the first visa but if someone has been paying into the system for nearly all of the first visa and is going to continue for the second visa why should they have to pay the 500 pounds for the second half...
  26. luckily I didn't pay that.i do understand what you are saying though.but we had no healthcare during our fiancé visa and the initial 2 years.

    • Needed to do a visa run, so used the opportunity to visit Yangon together with Mrs. CampariO and her sister in law.
      Applied for an E-visa which arrived 1 day after, the ladies can get a visa exempt at the immigration in Yangon. Booked Air Asia for 2200 Bt/person, drove by car to Don Muang.

      Day 1: Flight from BKK to Yangon, Visit Shwedagon Pagoda and park

      The terminal 2 is now open

      Between terminal 1 and 2 is a large food court with a good choice of eateries.

      Checked in online, there is a remark on top of the boarding pass to do the document check (checking the e-visa) which is done in BKK at the gate while in Yangon at the baggage drop.

      Since when do they have the flight info in Chinese?

    • We have a small (54 rai) farm adjacent to Erawan shrine at the border of NBLP and Loei provinces. It is mostly orchards, e.g., Tamarinds, Kefir, Rubber, and Maoberry but last year we started dairy farming with an initial small seed herd of 25 Heifers with a business plan to build it up to 100 milkers within 5 years.

      One year into the BP we are at 30 milkers with another 8 coming of age in a few months and a total including calves of 45 with new ones arriving every month ... including the baby bull in brown and white in one of the pictures below. Any way, a few shots from this morning after some early hours helping momma deliver the new guy. Momma has some "splaining" to do ... she's one of the black & whites being chased in another photo and the little guy is brown and white like a longhorn ... maybe momma is getting some strange on the side.

      My mate Ziva ... a 5-month old Labrador.

      Some of the bovines including new mom and brown-colored stranger
